Steam Plant Shoot by Flawless Salon & Jerome Pollos

We knew the Steam Plant was going to be an incredible addition to the Spokane wedding venue options when we featured them a few weeks back. So when this  bridal inspiration shoot by Flawless Salon and Jerome Pollos landed in our inbox, we couldn’t wait to show you!

Here is the D.L. from organizer of the shoot, Amy, owner of Flawless Salon:

The motivation for this shoot was to show the transformation possible when working with professional hair and make up artists. Our model Emily is gorgeous without make up and in her everyday life she wears very little. However, most brides want to be the most gorgeous version of themselves on their wedding day, without feeling like they don’t recognize themselves. This is exactly what we set out to do, using different techniques.

First, our stylist Janay installed clip in extensions to add length and volume. This is a quick, easy, and affordable way to create a gorgeous Bridal style even if the Bride’s hair isn’t as thick or long as she would like it to be. After curling all the hair, she used a specialized “sewing” method which allows for a softer loose bridal style, which will hold throughout her wedding day. This method also uses less hairspray and minimal bobby pins for a more comfortable wedding day style. We were able to quickly transition her hair to a complete updo for her sophisticated black dress.
We used silicone based airbrush foundation to match her tanned skin. Airbrush foundation will last all day, even through heat, hugs, and tears. It provides a full coverage flawless finish, without a heavy make up feel. We always blend the Bride’s neck, chest, face and sometimes even the back and arms to create a seamless look. We played up her gorgeous blue-green eyes with a purple undertone eye shadow palette, and strip lashes. Many brides also like eye lash extensions for the wedding day. This ensures no mascara fails the day of the wedding and is great for minimal fuss during the honeymoon.
In this shoot we showcased three different dresses for different times of the wedding day celebration. Many brides are now wearing one dress for the ceremony, a more comfortable less restricting dress for the reception, and a slinky dress in a different color for after hours partying with close friends and family.
Gorgeous transformation and so much fun to work in such a unique wedding/reception venue and the amazing Jerome Pollos!

Here is a bit from Jerome Pollos Photography about the shoot:

When Amy from Flawless approached me for the shoot, I was intrigued by the possibilities. After talking with Amy, owner of Flawless Salon in Coeur d’Alene, I knew this was going to be a fun session.

The look Flawless Salon wanted from the images were edgy, sophisticated, and a step back from the Pinterest-inspired burlap, lace and country themed imagery. The look Amy wanted was done with some dramatic lighting and working the architectural features at the Steam Plant into the images.

There’s so much texture and colors you wouldn’t normally see associated with a wedding in the Northwest. The metal and glasswork in the entry way, the dark, pipe-lined boardroom, metal staircases, large paneled windows, and brick walls all lent themselves to a very industrial, yet sophisticated feel.

I can’t wait for the opportunity to document a wedding at the Steam Plant.
