Working as a travel concierge, a lot of our clients come to us looking for recommendations on the best of everything the city has to offer. It is our pleasure to start highlighting some of the incredible vendors we love so much in Charleston, South Carolina.
As of the Summer 2016, we are SO lucky to have one of the best Boudoir Photographers in the US - Shannon-Michelle.
Shannon has a background in Runway Fashion Photography and uses it to bring out the beauty in every client. She is a genius of posing and lighting, and to top it off, has a personality you immediately want to be best friends with! Her boudoir shoots include a pre-shoot consultation, professional hair and makeup, 3 outfit changes and professional retouching. Her products are held to the same standards as her photos - my favorites being a Bedroom Book that is hand crafted in Italy and takes 2-3 months to produce and a thumb drive of images that looks like a mini perfume bottle.
Take a peek at some of her incredible portraits below. Whether you are coming into town for a girls getaway, romantic vacation or a babymoon - booking a session with Shannon-Michelle is something we highly recommend!
In addition to Boudoir Photography, Shannon also offers Professional Headshots, Selfies with Style and Pose Pretty. Selfies with Style is a must-have for bloggers! It's a monthly subscription where you send Shannon your selfie, she reviews, edits and processes it and then sends it off to her team of fashion and editorial retouchers. When you get the photo back the results are simply stunning. See below for more examples.
Pose Pretty is another one of Shannon's amazing product lines, perfect for photographers. Pose Pretty was created to help photographers get their clients into the perfect pose... every. single. time. Shannon breaks down each pose one step at a time allowing you to relax, appear confident, work faster and focus on client experience. In addition to her Posing Deconstructed guide, she also offers Posing Parties where she will come and teach a group how to pose for everything from selfies to boudoir to fashion!!
Lastly, be sure to check out Shannon Michelle's book, Beauty Comes From Within, And I Can Prove It. It is a beautiful collection of artistic photographs that compliments this quick and easy to read, fashion based book. Shannon Michelle offers a blunt and candid peek into the beauty industry with behind the scenes stories, celebrity interviews, as well as her honest opinion about what really makes someone beautiful and why no one else is talking about it. Check out some of her before and afters below.
