Kendall | Wedding Planner Brand Session

Wanting to uplevel her wedding planning business, Mahogany Hill Weddings, Kendall reached out to me for another branding session to update her images as well as include her team. I simply love working with past clients because I already have a great idea of their brand and our session goes so much smoother because we already know what to expect from each other. Take a look at our previous session together!

Goals for Kendall’s brand session

One of Kendall’s big goals for her session was making sure we captured her amazing team. She knows her events are as successful as they are because of the team that she trusts. She wanted to make sure to highlight these amazing people in her life–her assistant, Taylor, her husband, Tacuma, and her Mom & Dad. After working with this sweet family, Kendall said I was officially inducted into the Nibbs/Pettaway family…I’m totally honored!!

What Kendall had to say about working with Kia & Co:

I have had this one particular lipstick throwing picture I wanted to take stuck in my head for so long, Gari-Ann made it happen! As a makeup artist it’s very important that I have fun products and pictures to show what I do. She brought all those ideas to life and I couldn’t be more pleased with how my branding session turned out! Gari- Ann was very flexible and worked with me when I had to reschedule, I 100% recommend her for all your small business and personal branding needs!

Business brand shots

Since our last session together, Kendall moved into her office space at the Highpoint, a co-working space in Richmond, Virginia. She wanted to make sure to capture her working and taking care of all the business tasks in her new office space.
