Behind The Scenes Exclusive – Brandy & Chris

Watch this exclusive behind the scenes clip featuring engaged couple Brandy & Chris portraying Carmen Jones & Joe. Makeup & nails by Jeremy Dell. Captured March 2012

This shoot was truly a feather in my cap. I remember watching Carmen Jones on Demand a few months ago and being so inspired by the styling, and the characters as well as that wonderful cast. I immediately had the idea to shoot engaged and married couples as iconic on-screen romances, but didn’t know where to begin. As luck would have it a couple of weeks later Brandy contacted me through Facebook and told me about her concept to portray Carmen Jones, I was so excited to share her vision. We talked and met for a consultation and the rest was studio magic. The couple did a remarkable job on set, and a special thank you to Jeremy Dell for holding down the makeup and nails to execute the vision, and also to apprentice Justin for running out to grab the perfect color nail polish during the shoot. I am truly grateful to earn a living doing what I love.
