Pampered from Beginning to End

TESTIMONIAL: With Capitol Bombshell, I was pampered from beginning to end. My very personalized experience included full hair and make-up transformation and photo-shoot themes of my choosing. We even created a theme they'd never used before using my equestrian gear - and without any pre-planning - impressive! Luigi Crespo, and his glam team cultivated an environment that was playful and fun, yet tasteful and safe - consummate professionals. And equally important, my photos are absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Capitol Bombshell, for a fantastic pin-up photo-shoot - my first one, but not likely my last!  ~Bethany E.

Wall of Shoes to Die For... Dia de los Muertos style that is...

TESTIMONIAL: Having the pleasure of working with Capitol Bombshell on such a unique photo shoot was nothing short of magical. From choosing the perfect outfit with the help of the Capitol Bombshell team, having the most beautiful and creative sugar skull makeup done by Jordan K Winn & Co, to getting in front of the camera and glamming it up, it was non-stop fun from stepping foot in the door until the last shot! Not to mention the gorgeous dressing room and drool-worthy wall of shoes. I can't wait to do it all again!   -Autumn Breeze

One of our favorites of the day. I don't smoke and that cigar was not lit. Ahh, the magic of post production. 

Love the colors!

These boots are made for glamming! Miss-V visits Capitol Bombshell

TESTIMONIAL: Last week we had the pleasure of working with Miss-V who as the winner of a Capitol Bombshell-Retro Lovely Magazine free photo-shoot contest visited us all the way from Philadelphia, PA.  This is what she had to say about her experience: "Capitol Bombshell is truly your full service pin-up photographer!  The first thing I noticed when walking in to their beautiful studio is a gorgeous WALL of shoes.  They certainly have an impressive wardrobe to match, but it is all about the shoes!  After getting my hair and make-up impeccably styled [by Jordan K Winn & Co.] and slipping into my genuine vintage outfit, I strolled over to one of their many mini-themed areas and instantly felt like a Varga girl.  This is how it's done."  I can't wait to go back!  -Miss-V.  Follow Miss V via

Hard day for Miss-V cleaning all our 65 pairs of shoes wearing those amazing ballet boots and a tutu.
