    Too all photographers. Please remember if you shoot a photo and someone use it and don't put your name on it you are not happy. Think of the hair and makeup people along with the models who photos you have posted on the the site and their names are not credited at all. Please go back again give everyone credit.

      I totally agree! Thanks for bringing it up ! It's unfair not to give appropriate credit considering the effort everyone put to make it happen

    August 27, 2014

  • Daniel L.

    I have started uploading the images. The first being Zayra Lizbeth Figueroa. Photographer remember to give credit on the image to also hair, makeup and designer. And if you have any shots of them getting ready. The makeup and hair people would love it.

    • Lynn

      She looked amazing. I didn't get the opportunity to shoot her. :(

      August 21, 2014

  • Kaira Julie G.

    Correct, I did in fact leave and not shoot that day but I didn't do it in an attempt of pulling a diva move or for selfish reasons but because first and foremost I am here to protect and defend my rights as a model and as a human being providing my services just as everybody else did. I came into this shoot with a positive outlook on the day and my expectations were very much disappointed that day. I came in expecting my designers dress only to find out that my designer would not be able to make the shoot and there were no backup dresses. The only ones that were there were extremely oversized, yellow, and fit me awkwardly and not flattering to my figure. Besides that my hairstylist did not show either and another stylist was nice enough to help me when it was not intended for her to do so. At the end of the day I was left unattended with a photographer that I was not comfortable shooting with and an unorganized shoot. I was also not the only one to leave the shoot for similar reasons

    • Arlene Orlando M.

      You did get some photos! They were just uploaded:)

      1 · August 20, 2014

    • Aretha R.

      The photographer assignment was done ahead of time, but for some reason got off course that day. One of my models never made it to some of her assigned photographers, but I also grabbed her to work with one she was assigned to that I wanted to make sure she shot with. In the future, when working with designers, perhaps there should be a pre-fitting and designers need to make sure their wardrobe can get to the location (that's just professionalism IMO)

      1 · August 20, 2014

    This is a generic model release. http://www.rgbstock.com/pdf/RGBStock.com_genericmodelform.pdf I was expecting a release signed by each model. I will follow up with my models to see if they can sign my releases.

    How do we know which photographers photographed our models? I haven't seen any photos posted of Kaira (I was the makeup artist for her) yet.

    August 19, 2014

    • Jacqueline M.

      Ok thanks. Any plans for another bridal shoot? I was really hoping for a bridal photo for my portfolio as this is my intended focus and it looks like I won't be getting that now.

      1 · August 20, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Thank you Aretha. Jacqueline, I will put together something soon. Even I wanted to do it in Park. But this time planning to do it with smaller group with interested people. Thanks everyone again for understanding.

  • Natisha C.

    I saw on a few pics the hair stylist name was not correct. I was the hair stylist for Natallia, Neha Ginny, Zayra, and Carlisa. I just want to make s ure everyone gets credit for their work.

  • Pamela M.

    This was a wonderful experience!! Thank you all so much I hope to work with you soon. If there are any photographers that would like to shoot with us again we are open to the opportunity.

    4 · August 19, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Thank you Pamela for such a wonderful dresses! It was pleasure meeting you!

      August 19, 2014

  • Kamilla

    Thank you Ganesh for organizing the event; it was a crazy day for you and you did your best in trying to comfort everyone!

    I am sorry that some of the models didn't get a chance to wear a beautiful gown and I was super lucky to book a dress with my designer the night before when upon the request the photos of the dresses were sent to our group. Thank you Pamela Perkins for being super professional and for your beautiful dresses and accessories!!! Thank you Shavella and Eliana for hair and makeup!

    I feel bad for the team whose designer couldn't make it and models were left with no dresses to wear but Ganesh's backup dresses. It was professional of you to bring back ups, Ganesh, and it is clear that you can't meet everyone's expectations alone given such a big scale. I would like to apologize that I didn't get to shoot with certain photographers with whom I was supposed to shoot and I would like to thank Manoj, Daniel and Pooria for being patient with me while shooting me:)

    6 · August 19, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Thanks a lot Kamilla!

    • Kamilla

      It was nice to see you again, Tony!

      August 19, 2014

  • Neha G.

    It would be a better day for me had I had a better gown. It was very disappointing to know that photographers did not want to shoot with me purely because my given dress was in a very bad state. Hopefully it will be better for future events.
    Note to self: check dress before hair and make up for future events :(

    2 · August 17, 2014

    • Neha G.

      I did get some clicks let's see what comes out of it. M waiting to see myself.
