Have you seen Real Weddings Magazine‘s cover model contest photo shoot featuring Kristy Johnson, Kaboo Vang and Lynn Holmes in the Summer/Fall 2012 issue yet (If not, you can view it here!)?
Back in March, our three gorgeous real brides got to play dress up all day long as our Real Weddings team poked and prodded these girls at a photo shoot at The Greens Hotel in Sacramento. Featuring local gowns, local floral designers, local hair and make-up teams, fabulous accessories, and the talented husband and wife photography duo, Geoff and Lisa Bardot from The Goodness, the shoot was just amazing!
We could never pull off such a fabulous photo shoot without the hard working efforts of our dedicated team! Whether it’s steam dresses until their fingers prune, clamping dresses until their hands cramp in agony, laying in the dirt to protect a gown or burying themselves under massive amounts of tulle just to help a bride with her shoes, they’ll do just about anything to get that great shot! We hope you agree that the end result is spectacular, but it’s always fun to see what goes on “behind the scenes.”
So, without further ado, meet the cast and crew that help create the magic behind the lens in these fun behind the scenes photos by Real Weddings Magazine staffer Aaron Roseli! And, stay tuned to our blog for more “front of the camera” looks featuring our gorgeous cover model finalists.

The cover model contest photo shoot Real Weddings Magazine team members who produced this editorial feature include: Morgan Casarez, Danielle Enns, Rhonda Lou Hayden, Jamila B. Khan, Desiree Patterson, Aaron Roseli, Paris Ryan, Gloria Schroeder, Nicole Shebl, Wendy Sipple, Leah Sturgeon and Megan Wiskus.
