Teresa Lee Photography has partnered with VEDA Salon & Spa for the 2nd annual "Face of VEDA" competition in Colorado Springs.
The “Face of Veda” is the spokes model for Veda Salon & Spa’s 3 Colorado Springs locations and 1 Denver location. The “FOV” spokes model participates in live events and modeling photo shoots promoting the Veda Brand.
Hundreds of entries were received and reviewed by a committee that included Teresa Lee Photography, Carrie Perkins (Chief Operating Officer for Veda), the Veda Management team and others. The committee interviewed many of the entrants and chose 12 “faces” to advance. The 12 finalists were selected based upon several criteria including their charitable actions, non-profit organizations they support, and community involvement. The finalists were styled at Veda Salon & Spa, provided wardrobe & styled by Muse Me, Inc and photographed by Teresa Lee Photography.
On July 14th, Veda Salon & Spa’s Falcon Landing location hosted a cocktail party to announce the winner of the 2012 Face of Veda competition. The 12 finalists were invited to attend this glamorous event which featured “Veda”tini’s and h’orderves. As the crowd gathered around framed images of the 12 finalists, Carrie Perkins announced a couple of surprise twists. First, all 12 finalists will be featured in a 2012 calendar that will showcase their charities and that the proceeds from the calendar will be donated to those charities. The big surprise of the night was that for 2012, there are to be 2 “Faces of Veda”. Congratulations to Jillian Morales and Joanne Bonicelli! Both of these incredible women will be photographed by Teresa Lee Photography and featured in extensive marketing campaigns for Veda Salon & Spa all over the state for the next 12 months.
Teresa Lee Photography and VEDA Salon & Spa, along with Luisa Graff Diamonds & Jewelers and Muse Me, Inc all contributed styling efforts and prizes to the winners.
