Absolutely in love with Emily’s J.Crew dress and Jesse’s dapper plaid shirt & tie combo. Mini weddings, yes…again. Enjoy this sneak! (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.

Wedding Advice,Wedding Photography — Edyta @ 2:13 PM

So not only was it my bff’s 30th birthday last week (we threw her quite the balloon bash as shown above), but she’s getting married this winter! And yes, the wedding photographer in me knows many of the trends in the whole wedding-hooplah-of-a-world. But I’m a perfectionist that likes exploring my inspirations/ideas. Currently, this maid of honor is planning a west coast & midwest bachelorette bash, I found this well-said article from East Side Bride. I really couldn’t have said it better so I now pass this on to my fellow MOHs and bridesmaid readers! Be the best that you can be :) Feel free to share your advice, ideas and feel-good stories!

Get ready for GORG! Carol and Seth’s multicultural wedding sneak pops a big punch with soft and cute California details. Relaxed yet still classic, Carol and Seth’s lovey day was full of smiles, hugging and tears of joy! I had such a blast with these two photographing their love shoot that I knew it would be memorable. Their wedding was tucked away in the Santa Cruz Mountains where desert vegetation meets redwoods. Man I love this state and what an incredibly magically place to wed! Thanks to my right-hand woman Jenna! Hold on to your hats as these Chinese, Jewish and California cool traditions collide for this sweet wedding day! (more…)

Woweee my friend Leah turned thirty! It’s the busiest time of year for weddings/photoshoots and there’s lots of celebrating as well! So very excited to FINALLY talk about this surprise birthday party that I’ve been co-planning for months! We just returned this past weekend from quite the little diy bash. My bff from college, Leah, lives 2000 miles away from me, and she thought I had to photograph a wedding on her 30th birthday. Little did she know that her fiance and I had a little something up our sleeves! She had no idea that my man, myself and her Minnesota based family were going to be there with tons of food, diy decor and cheer! It all started with an invitation… (more…)

Hello!! Working away on another crazy fall season (can’t believe tomorrow is the 1st day of fall & my bday)! But let’s focus on today! I’m giving you a sneak of cultural goodness, Nina and Scott’s hybrid Indian-American wedding! Don’t let the bright colors, sparkles and vivid details fool you, this happy couple’s love was delicate and casual. Just the way I like it! The perfect combination of glam and California cool. One minute they’re dancing romantically and then next busting out into a Bollywood dance! And let’s not talk about how gorgeous they both are ;) It was a blast and a nice breath of fresh wedding air. Thanks so much to my right-hand photo lady Abi(more…)

Goodness me, don’t these ladies look magical?! I’ve always been a big fan of flowy wedding hair with a cute hair accessory combo. But add real fluffy florals, and I’m instantly smitten with romance and whimsy. Could be the Eastern European in me?! I’ve seen this look worn more by many European or Australian brides (the key is fluffy and full wreaths) and it really adds a pretty pop. Click more to see one of my all time fav fluffy hair wreaths. Veils…you are so 2010 :)
