I was so excited the other day when pinup model Dianna Prince told me that our shoot was featured on the cover of this month’s Vintage Boudoir Magazine! Dianna also does pinup hair styling and runs the Dianna Prince Pinup Academy. She has since relocated to Las Vegas (the perfect place for pinup) but I had fun shooting with her and the other models she worked with. Also featured in this magazine were burlesque dancer Dee V’ous of the Drop Dead Dames Burlesque Revue and the lovely Frawy Ayazo. All 3 ladies are wearing pieces from my Etsy shop, Sweet Bisou! Dianna is wearing a 70s Miss Dior nightgown. Dee V’ous is wearing a vintage nightgown by Harvey Woods. And Frawy is wearing a vintage lace dress (which had a matching bolero). She loved the dress so much that she actually bought it!

Thanks so much to Vintage Boudoir Magazine for the feature, and to Dianna for organizing the shoot and submitting the photos! Make sure to pick up the magazine to see some more lovely vintage boudoir photos!

One of the images I shot from a shoot earlier this year with model Kaite Dent was featured in Issue No. 1 of Kat Club Magazine by Retro Lovely! So excited to have this shot featured among so many other gorgeous images! Seriously, this magazine is full of pinup style loveliness! Thanks to Hair by Dianna Prince, who organized the shoot, and to Kat Club for the feature!

I’m so excited to finally share some images from my Carmen Miranda inspiration shoot with burlesque performer Dee V’ous of the Drop Dead Dames Burlesque Revue! Ms. Dee V’ous was cast as Carmen Miranda for the anniversary issue of TPG Magazine, which is available now! The magazine is filled with models paying tribute to famous Hollywood icons. It’s a pretty amazing collection of images, and I’m so thrilled to have been a part of it! Ms. Dee V’ous really captured the spirit and beauty of Carmen Miranda. She also made her outfit! Is there anything this gorgeous lady can’t do?

I really loved the images we got, but my favorites were in black and white. Dee V’ous is a classic beauty!

I was so excited the other day to scroll through my news feed on Facebook and see Genevieve & Jim’s wedding photos posted by San Diego Style Weddings! Their wedding at the Hotel del Coronado was beyond beautiful, and we had the privilege of delivering their beautiful wedding album to them up in Sonoma last weekend! Talk about timing! : )

It’s been a busy summer over here at GTP, and one of the highlights for us has been seeing our sweet couple Alexis & Eike featured on Southern California Bride! Their wedding at the Sheraton Harbor Island was a day that we’ll always hold close to our hearts. We love these guys and their families, so every time we see their photos it makes us smile. We are so excited that their wedding was one of the first featured on the new Southern California Bride site, which is just full of wedding pretties! Speaking of pretties, make sure to check out the lovely details from Alexis & Eike’s wedding!

Back in March, I partnered up with pinup model Dianna Prince on a photoshoot inspired by one of the greatest beauties of all time – Cleopatra! The first time Dianna and I worked together, I kept saying how I saw her as Cleopatra, and she said she had been wanting to do a Cleopatra inspired shoot! So we put the plans into motion, and with the help of Make Up By G Dianna Prince channeled the beauty and strength of the Queen of the Nile! And channel it she did! For that day, she WAS Cleopatra! The shoot was so much fun, and we created some of my favorite images ever. I’ve been dying to share this shoot, but we had to keep it secret because it was accepted for a magazine cover! Well, now I am excited to share some of the first images from our shoot, as one of Dianna’s looks is featured in the June 2014 issue of Baba Lous Beauties! Not only was it featured… Dianna is also the cover model! They chose my favorite image from the whole shoot! I can’t wait to share the full shoot, but we are still waiting on the second look to be featured in another publication. But I hope you enjoy this first look at this beautiful shoot! Thanks so much to Dianna Prince for all of your work in planning this shoot and to Make Up By G for creating a flawless look!

Our recent shoot with pinup model Dianna Prince was featured in the March issue of Peepshow Pinup Magazine! Pinup photography is a new genre for me, but it’s so much fun! I enjoyed working with Dianna, who is just a lovely and inspiring model. She may also be the hardest working model I have ever met! She is always shooting and working on new projects! I’m excited to shoot again with her latest this month on an amazing project!

Earlier this month, Brianna & Donnie’s beautiful wedding at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club was featured in the “I Do, I Do” section of the Florida Times-Union! Their fun and quirky Zelda-themed wedding caught the attention of the writer of the column, and it certainly was one of the cutest themes we’ve ever seen at a wedding! Congrats again to Brianna & Donnie!
