Inspired by a recent trip to the island of Kauai in the state of Hawaii, photographer Julie Saad teamed up with make-up artist, Amanda Wilson, and hairstylist, Kris Fidler-Ballard of Glamsquad to create several stunning beach-ready styles. “It was really important to us that we keep the looks fresh, seemingly effortless, and simply beautiful to enhance the brides natural beauty, not try to pull focus from it,” explains Kris.
Julie shares that a beautiful watercolor and pastel painting by artist Joanna Carolan of the snow goddess Poli’ahu set the mood for the overall feel of the photos: “I loved the muted, light colors she incorporated into the delicate image, different from what I normally thought of when I thought of bright tropical Hawaii.”

Top Tips for Tropic-Worthy Tresses:
Despite having hair that seems to be in no less than perfect condition, the lovely Sharlene at Major Models knows all about the stresses and strains that us ladies often put our hair under: “The constant assault from blow dryers, curling irons or flat irons can make keeping your hair looking healthy a difficult task!”
Sharlene says the following hair care regimen is to credit for saving her hair and giving her that healthy shine we see in the pictures:
- “I have learned that using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner is something to be taken seriously.
- The shampoo I use is Kérastase Thermique Intensive Nutrition Shampoo. It coats the hair and protects it from the rigorous heating products used.
- I then condition my hair with Davines Conditioner Love Curl. It’s an all organic conditioner that completely moisturizers my hair. It’s thick enough to use as a deep conditioner but also could be used as an everyday conditioner.“
By the way ladies, if you’re wondering about the dresses used in the shoot, they’re from Saja, whom photographer Julie first heard about them when a wedding client of hers wore one of their gorgeous gowns to her beach wedding in Mexico. “It was the perfect blend of formal and free-flowing, and I just had to include them in this shoot!”
