Jumping for joy this Wednesday to my little photo silo of Cheree Berry’s New York City skyline invitation featured in Darcy’s Editor Note! It’s small contribution but put a mighty smile on my face today ;) Page 44 to be exact. The magazine is wedding heaven and full of fantastically dreamy details. Cheers to Spring! See how the skyline was used for the menu here and the whole invitation suite here.

Oh dear, cuteness. Little Baby Emme made my heart melt the second I flew into Chicago last week. Remember Liz & Mike? I had the pleasure of photographing their first little one (not even 2 weeks old!), and she made quite the impression on me. Her home was filled with love and peace…such a delight. She’s going to grow up with incredible family surrounding her. During our session, we laughed together, cried a bit, ate a little and slept most of it :) Cheers! (more…)

Last weekend was delightfully eventful! I flew to Chicago to photograph a fun wedding and threw our dear friends the best.baby.shower.ever! (Remember their diy paper pop-upĀ invitations?) I’m still bowing down to the best little helper friends a girl could ask for! Without your help, this could not have happened. The day was full of love, laughter, gourmet potluck goodies, handmade details and rain while cozing up fireside at Suzanne Cummings Flowers. Nat and Jeff, Cheers to your first little baby kiwi girl! You and her will be loved forever, from Auntie Edyta. (more…)

We are officially post Valentine’s Day, how many of you are newly engaged?! CONGRATS! Because of you and the fact that we are approaching engagement photography season, it’s time to share some of my favorite creative engagement sessions. Couples can go about in several different ways (heavily staged, props, simple portraits), but I like my couples to think about it as a date! Whether it’s day or evening, at home or out, a dates a date! It allows for movement, talking, cuddling and for the photographer to get to know your personality better. Think about what you like to do together? What do you wish you did more of together? What’s fun and relaxing for you? Here’s some engagement photography eye-candy for you: The Classic, The Sunday Morning Stroll, The Artistically Playful, The Urban

Ah Valentine’s Day. You can let the media make you grumpy about it or you can embrace the day with a little love. Jman and I like to keep things simple and out of the hype. My new best friend, Pinterest, has me visually over stimulated with all kinds of goodies. Some of my Valentine’s Day favorites: dreamy, cozy, romantic, indulgent and effortless. How about you?

Also known as paper moons and star-flower pincushions! Move over yellow billy buttons (craspedias), scabiosa pods are in! I’m seeing these pop up in retail shops and weddings….and I like it. They’re whimsical, natural, rustic and look fantastic in just about any bunch of flowers. Include them in with your billy buttons and make them play nice ;)
