If you know me and know me well…you know that I’m already obsessed with anything photographer Sharon Montrose produces (btw, check out out her husband’s new Etsy shop).  But now…now I’m also gawking and totally obsessed with Catherine found via Twig & Thistle!  I’m a sucker for prints, especially when used as backdrops, and when you combine that with animals I pretty much fall to the ground.  You must see the rest of her work, must.

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! (more…)

Trends of 2010 – DIY Eco-Friendly Wedding Exit Confetti

Uncategorized — Edyta @ 4:18 AM

The wedding I currently have in my post-production inspired this one!  Since the days of rice throwing, weddings really haven’t had much action in the exit confetti department. Sure, it’s a hassle – from clean up, to wasteful and wedding budget-cuts…exit confetti has seen better days. As a photographer seeking action in my shots, confetti is a great way to add a little emotional punch to your wedding exit (ya it has historical tradition too). You can purchase biodegradable confetti here and here.  You can also create your own with unique punch-outs or my favorite idea from dried herbs (lavender being most popular)!! Oooo la la!  You can even sew cute little sachets with vintage fabric to add a colorful pop to hands of the aisle guests.  I love this couple’s alternative with paper airplanes!  Now you have no excuse :)

“When it comes to Chicago photographers, we love the work of Edyta Szyszlo. She simply has color and light down—and we think Jaimie & Jason would agree! We can’t say enough how sweet we think they are too. The rose purse, those shoes, the love look between them, seriously beautiful engagement shots! We were overjoyed to get to talk with Jaimie about how the couple met, their wedding plans and what she’s loving about Chicago…keep on reading!”

With their wedding just a couple weeks away, I love that we get to relive Jaimie and Jason’s engagement session!  Check out Part 1 and Part 2 – you’ll love reading Jaimie’s thoughts on wedding planning.

AH! Totally screaming over these!  I wish more couples used cake stands for their weddings.  I understand that a wedding cake feeding over 100 people may not fit on this adorable vintage inspired cake stand by Clara French but maybe consider  inviting less people?! Learn more about Clara and her classic designs at the link above.
