Las Vegas Vow Renewal: Photo Inspiration

by Jamie Sanford on November 8, 2011

Countdown to Las Vegas continues – now it is time to look at other people’s photos and use them as ideas to create our photos for the big vow renewal.  I am definitely planning a trip to the famous Las Vegas sign for some photos, but let’s get some concrete ideas down first.

Love this one from Kristen Joy Photography.

Also enjoying this one with the “Eiffel Tower” in the background, from The Knot.

Not so much a wedding photo, but this from msmail on Flickr is a pretty silhouette.

What iconic photos should we strive for while in Vegas? Leave suggestions in the comments!

Las Vegas Vow Renewal: Final Hair and Makeup Inspiration

by Jamie Sanford on November 7, 2011

Countdown to Las Vegas continues – and now I’m narrowing down my makeup and hair inspirations for the girls at Makeup in the 702.

I could NEVER achieve these perfect waves, so this Kate Beckinsale look might be my guide for the hair. By the way, my hair is totally redder now.

Kristen Stewart was serving Priscilla Presley realness in her W photoshoot, and I like the dark eyes a lot.  I might want this without the giant wing coming out of the side there, I’m not sure that it will work for me without looking silly.

Britney Spears also has some great eye makeup going on in her new “Criminal” video.  I’ve been a longtime fan of Britney’s smoky eyes and nude lip thing, so this is nothing too different.  I think I just need to figure out just how smoky I want my eye makeup to be.

Next up, photo inspiration and activity ideas for the Vegas trip!  Please leave your Las Vegas recommendations in the comments.

Curious Tuesday 008

I am participating in Gala Darling’s Curious Tuesday project.

Curious Tuesday 008

1. Where do you find inspiration?

All over the place. Watching TV, reading blogs I subscribe to, Twitter, magazines.

2. Have you got any hobbies or interests you’ve let lapse & wish you would take up again?

I’ve been slacking with photography. I am really not a fan of being out in the heat/sun during the summer, so that’s a problem. I need to start making myself do some GOYA (Get Off Your Ass) photo excursions so that I don’t forget what shutter speed is.

Humpback Tail 6.

The last set of photos I took with my SLR was from our trip to Provincetown, and that was over a month ago.

3. One tea party. Ten invitations. Who do you invite?

  • My husband
  • Lady Gaga
  • Robert Pattinson
  • Barack Obama
  • Someone from Summit Entertainment with power (I need a contact to discuss a possible product connection for Breaking Dawn and I have no idea how to connect with someone!) (Also Robert Pattinson will be there to get me connected.)
  • My friend Alex
  • RuPaul
  • Bill Clinton
  • Daria Morgendorfer
  • Elton John

4. Who was your favourite teacher at school & why?

Ms G from 3rd and 5th grade was awesome, maybe because I was exposed to her in weird situations like when we ended up on the same Caribbean cruise and she got tipsy with my parents on a beach in St. Maarten.

5. Have you ever been in a long-distance relationship?

Yes, with my husband. We met online in March 2000, in person in July 2000, and didn’t live in the same place until June/July 2003. I think we lasted because we didn’t have any other experience with each other. We’ve lived together for 7 years now, I could never go back to being in a long-distance thing now, at least not for more than a short period of time.
