I don’t foresee headbands leaving weddings but a new twist on wedding hair accessories gaining strength. So whimsical, adorable, and natural! Check out more on wedding crowns and the ladies behind this fantastic accessory here!
Grace and Geoff (view engagement) were an absolutely beautiful and smiley couple! Their wedding started the season of travels for me – flying back to Chicago from San Francisco many times until winter. And what a fantastic one to start it all off! They were completely smitten with one another and surrounded with fantastic family and friends. Thanks to Amy (my second photographer) for an incredible job! You’ll totally swoon over these images!

I know, you’re just as shocked as I am with the word ‘fall’! Well it pretty much was in Chicago over the past weekend while I was visiting for work. Usually, it’s hot and humid…but somehow Chicago managed to be colder than San Francisco! This time of year, I love San Francisco for it’s indian summer – a real one :) So while in Chicago, I photographed Baby Dolls Boutique’s new location for the upcoming website. And I just had to share some of my favorite new products from Vanessa’s fab new store! (more…)
Have a lured you in?! Over the weekend, I stopped into Forever 21 (yes I know, teeny-bop galore) for a couple basic t-shirts. They’re super cheap! Anyway, I found the most amazing twisted strap, white chiffon maxi dress on the 2nd floor of the downtown San Francisco location….AND I can’t find it online anywhere. But it’s still worth chatting about..it was under $30 and super cute!! Lots of us on budgets these days, even more so if you’re planning a wedding. Think out of the box when shopping for that wedding dress….I’m definitely a believer of style but if I could go on a fabulous honeymoon with the money that I used to purchase my dress, I would! The key to an under $50 wedding dress? Research, explore and don’t look for the word ‘wedding’! Go to the sale racks and enter stores you thought you’d never go to. Keep an open mind and think ‘cocktail dress’. Good luck!
Happy Monday everyone! Hope your weekend went well. I was super excited when Vana contacted me about some product photography tips last week. Her design work is amazing! Silhouettes have been a wedding and design trend for the past couple years and still going strong! She also does custom silhouettes (couples & families) and sells cufflinks, invitations, paper goodies, lockets, etc! Check out her link above and etsy shop, you’ll love it!
I.heart.the.sash! Brides and bridesmaids have been wearing sashes around their dresses for a while now. Clients have asked me where to find inexpensive sashes (bridal dress shops carry them but many for a hefty price). Sure, you can always sew your own if you’re crafty or even use super wide ribbon (still hard to find). But if you are looking for a unique, multifunctional option this might be it! American Apparel’s sash comes in a variety of colors and fabrics for $16! These are a little bit more casual but hey, get creative!
A little while ago, I posted the product images I took for Baby Dolls Boutique in Chicago. Well, I had the honor of doing a little shopping there myself on Wednesday. Since the website is in the works, I decided to take a few shots of the fabulousness that I came home with! (more…)
Hi there! How was everyone’s holiday weekend? I photographed a wonderful wedding Saturday and headed straight to Wisconsin with friends afterwards for a short but much needed break! So let’s talk cuteness! I promised some images from my jewelry and baby accessories shoot with Baby Dolls Boutique in Chicago and here they are! (more…)
