Kristen & Ben’s Handmade San Francisco City Hall Mini Wedding

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

What do you get when two creatives wed in the fall?! Pure yay! Kristen and Ben’s City Hall mini wedding was full of vintage inspirations, diy fall details (like the flowers, can you believe she designed and arranged them!?), lots of laughter, surprises and San Francisco charm. We met Ben at our first look spot and found a wedding date sign that he made then Kristen surprised Ben and family with a pop-up bag reception (including a banner, sparkling cider & Frank Sinatra via her ipod) outside in the plaza. Wondering where she got her dress, here! We had so much fun…this is what weddings are all about. Enjoy! (more…)

Brieanne & Brandon’s Maternity Portraits in San Francisco

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

An extra special treat to show you! I don’t normally photograph maternity ¬†(baby or family) sessions unless they are past brides/grooms of mine. I usually leave it to the other pros that specialize in this genre ;) But it was a special treat to photograph Brieanne and Brandon’s baby bump (not so baby, she’s due this month!!) as I photographed their wedding in late 2007. We wanted a relaxed, casual vibe highlighting them as a couple and the gorgeousness of San Francisco…not to mention avoiding cheesiness at all costs. We were beyond successful! These were a few favorites of mine: warning cozy blanket cuddling alert!! (more…)

How To Organize Bridesmaid Attire – Visuals are Everything!

Fashion,Wedding Advice — Edyta @ 10:57 AM

Photo: Edyta Szyszlo

This maid-of-honor is going to give it to you straight! Chances are you’re all in different cities/states. You all have different tastes. Luckily, bridesmaid wedding trends have gone casual yet still sophisticated so now there’s an actual chance that you’ll wear your dress again, yay :) Once the bride has decided on her bridesmaid look it’s time to get organized especially if she has decided on a variety of styles. I’m a believer that the maid-of-honor literally becomes the executive assistant to the bride. So how do you communicate the wardrobe the ladies (do this for guys too!) should try, buy, wear? Make a visual board! Do it digitally or physically but do it! Here’s the one I made for my friend’s December 30th winter wedding: warm gray color palette. (more…)

Whew! This past weekend my bff flew into SF for a girlie bachelorette weekend! I was a bit disgusted when hunting for fun props for her to wear on her big night out…even searched Etsy. So what did this maid-of-honor-who-loves-crafting do?! I made one of course! I wanted it to scream fun and girlie not veils and body parts (catching my drift). Here’s a rough and quick how-to for a diy bachelorette badge! (more…)

So incredibly genius. Really. You know I photograph stationery, obsessed with paper and props, appreciate a unique idea. But this really blows my mind today. There’s so much creativity in this world! Thanks to Justin for sending this my direction. If I had all the money in the world these would serve as my birthday invitations for next year…it’s a big one :) Awesome invitation idea for weddings as well. Again, genius.
