Who is this Mysterious Gem?
Hari Marie was Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She was brought up by two of the most inspiring people, her parents both hailing from the twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago . She most definitely had an interesting upbringing. Her mother, a very intelligent, beautiful, and independent woman, always taught her to utilize her creativity and never settle for less. Her father, the first entrepreneur in her family taught her organization and conviction.
Like most, she found her true career passion during her college years. Although she was majoring in economics her interests were almost always taken up by her extra curricular affairs.
Her cousin who is one of biggest female promoters in the Caribbean, NY community needed assistance in executing her events, and this is when Hari found her true calling. She was almost always needed in major decisions and her opinions were most appreciated. That was the time Hari decided that event planning is not only something she was naturally great at, but something she would absolutely love to do.
With her parents guidance and encouragement she graduated St Francis College with a BA in Economics and a minor in Finance. Following in her fathers footsteps, She would like to some day start her own Event Planning company; producing weddings, corporate events and more.
I began by shooting some before pictures of Hari, where her innocence is really very evident. (she is such a sweet girl).
45 minutes later She was #beatbyxayli and her innocent smile was replaced with a seductive snare. (She even stuck her tongue out at us. LOL)
We spent a few minutes putting her clothing together and finally I was able to fine tune her entire outfit and prep her for shooting. We climbed up to the roof in the dark 45 degree NYC weather and captured some dope shots up there.
We got some awesome shots! I’m no professional photographer but we had lots of fun!
(I kept this photo especially because it shows how deep of a person Hari is.. I see her face three different times in this photo. Can you?)
We even got back into the house and shot a few white wall portraits.
We switched outfits and had some lobby fun too!!
All in all I had so much fun transforming this LondonGyal it was unbelievable. She was truly a gem throughout the entire process….
From beginning to end!!
You can find Hari Marie in the background and sometimes forefront, assisting with the planning of many NYC Caribbean Events (she is a very hard worker). But you can also find her as @Hari Marie on Instagram and Twitter!!
Hari Marie is definitely #LondonGal approved!
