Here is the 3rd part of the Natural Hair Bride Showcase that I worked on with Taji of Taji Salon.

Chassity was the model for this session. I met her a few years ago through Taji when she was competing for a Natural Hair competition. Taji asked me if I could do one of Chassity’s photo-shoot for the competition. I was quite nervous because I didn’t have much photography experience. However, I said yes and she ended up winning the competition. Of course, when it was time for a Natural Hair Bride Showcase, we called her and she was down. 🙂

Chassity did her own makeup. Of course, hair was done by Taji Shabu-Jones of Taji Salon in Raleigh, North Carolina. The shoot was done at Fletcher Park in Raleigh. That was my 1st time at the park. Definitely look forward to going back to do more shoots there. The heat was on a whole ‘nother level that day but Chassity remained a trooper and hung in there. 🙂 We worked on creating some creative shots.

And like I mentioned in the earlier posts, my awesomely gifted videographer friend, Johnny Jones, also recorded this session to create a beautiful video of the project here – Natural Hair Bride Video. You should check out the video. Beautifully Sick!! 🙂

As a Wedding & Portrait Photographer & lover of natural hair on black women from all over the world, I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did. Feel free to leave comments or questions.
