A warm breeze, glowing California sun and the peaceful nature of the ranch’s animals…seriously, life could not get better. Meghan and Geoff with their closest 16 guests laughed, loved and blissfully indulged in each other’s company to celebrate the lovebirds. Words cannot describe how much I love Beltane Ranch…and Beltane Ranch weddings. It’s a magical place. I loved listening to the out-of-town guests ooo and ahh over our breathtaking scenery. Days like that make you really appreciate our lovely little Northern California region. So many delightful photos in this sneak peek, I just couldn’t resist! Enjoy! (more…)

Based on their engagement session, I knew Rachel and Howard would bring it on their wedding day :) Both designers and work for super fun San Francisco companies, they really went all out with some amazing details. The ‘yay’ sign is my all time favorite, and I can’t believe Howard made it himself! And can you believe Rachel designed their wedding invitations?! Talent. Pops of bright colors, smiley cheeks and the rustic charm of the historic farm entertained their guests all night. Thanks to my right-hand photo lady Kara! Enjoy your sneak peek! (more…)

Stormy skies, light sprinkles, huge hearts. I can honestly say that the entire guest list was one big melting pot of love! The perfect balance of NYC city spirit, rustic cowboy aesthetics and beautiful California ranch-style hills, this wedding was nothing short of special. Danaka and Jason were beyond delightful to photograph, game for anything and definitely worked the camera. I couldn’t believe Danaka did all the florals! Gorgeous bouquet! I’m going to quit chit-chatting here and let you gawk at the images (watch out there are lots!) yourself! Always a big thank you to my wonderful right-hand lady Kara! Enjoy! (more…)

DIY Air Plant Secret Message Packet

DIY — Edyta @ 10:33 AM

As many of you know, Jared and I are tying the knot after 11 years! And as you’ve probably seen so far (follow the IG/twitter hashtag #edytaandjared) that we aren’t the traditional type :) Yep, I’m in the business of weddings and as of late 2012, Jared has entered it. I frequent them often and have a special place in my heart for them. But of course after photographing so many and telling Jared all about them, we’ve realized what works for us as a couple. Jared and I have some of the bestest friends you could ever ask for. Seriously. They are the family one chooses, and we absolutely believe that. After lots of conversations, we decided to not have an official bridal party. Ok I’ll share our reasons, but these are our reasons why and by no means is there a right or wrong people! 1. We wanted everyone coming to our ‘wedding vacation’ (destination with super small guest list) to have a balls out blast with no strings attached, 2. We’re in our 30s, been together for many years so it’s more about the celebrations than the traditions for us, 3. Avoiding wedding dramas. However,¬†we still wanted our closest closest to feel special and to know that all our wedding festivities (leading up to and day-of) wouldn’t be the same without them! And the diy air plant secret message packet was born! The perfect token was mailed to our bestest to compliment our Palm Springs wedding! See more on how we did it… (more…)

Shelley & Chris’s Romantic Spring Wedding The Lodge at Sonoma

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

Whoot! It’s Friday and boy do I have a lovely wedding to show you! Shelley and Chris – a sparky yet sweet, super intelligent yet funny, grand’ole time of a couple. We had a blast during their engagement session in North Beach, view here. So I knew their wedding would be nothing short of greatness. Equal parts wine country rustic and charmingly modern, we played in the amazing rose gardens of property, vogued it out at a sweet white barn down the road, stuffed our faces and danced until the stars went to bed. They even had a poetry booth and a sparkler exit! As always, mega thanks to my right-hand photo lady Kara. Congratulations you two!! Enjoy the sneak! (more…)
