Yay!! Susan and Ben’s Ralston White Retreat Wedding was one of my favorite from 2013! So excited to relive their images again! Head over to 100 Layer Cake to see their feature! And when you’ve realized you haven’t seen enough, head over to my blog post! Thanks to the feature ladies! All the pretty florals by the fabulous Natalie Bowen Designs!
Watch out! Purple and gold coming at you! Last fall, I had the pleasure of photographing a whimsical sweetheart table set with glitter, charm and rustic elements all wrapped into one! Add a hanging centerpiece, hints of yellow and the gloriousness of Holman Ranch, well, you’ve got the perfect wedding! Be sure to check out more images here and see all the fab vendors who were involved at the end! Yay for sparkly animal figures! (more…)
Alright brides and really, all ladies…photo + makeup = forever. Don’t ever forget it! Meet Alifa Wong (owner of A La Arte Beauty in San Francisco). She’s my go-to makeup artist, the only one I recommend professionally and personally. Alifa is going to give you the real talk on makeup, and how it relates to your life and wedding. So be on the lookout for more posts of tips, advice and pep talks from her! From Alifa:
Hello everyone! A wedding involves so much planning and so many little details, and as it should, since it is one of the biggest and most important days in a girl’s life. So when it comes to makeup for this special occasion, it should be a detail that is not overlooked. As with everything else that comes along with the wedding plans, hiring your makeup artist will be one of the most important decisions you will make. Don’t be afraid to ask your artist questions- lots of it. Get to know your artist and let her or him get to know you. Makeup is not just about the colors on the outside, it can also bring out beauty and confidence from the inside. (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…)
Yay to Hannah and Chris for 1. being so ridiculously h to the i to the p cute and 2. for a lovely feature on Hi-Fi Weddings (see here)! Their love for love, music, family and fun made their wedding such a breeze to photograph. I love my couples.
Yay! So excited to be featured on Grey Likes Weddings with Caroline & Andre’s Beltane Ranch wedding! Summer’s blog is polished, clean and fresh…lovelovelovelove! A big thanks to my fab 2nd shooter Jenna for helping with the fabulousness (btw, if you need a fashion photog she’s definitely your gal). Be sure to check out the whole feature here. THANKS!
Yesterday, my lovely and inspiring collaboration wedding shoot was featured on Style Me Pretty! And now I get to share the goodies, finally ;) So today we have part one and tomorrow part two. I worked with a fantastic group of ladies from the Bay Area. You must check out their work and HIRE them for your own wedding! And I’m going to go ahead and call a wedding trend for 2011 – outdoor flea market vintage meets GLAM!
Videos are all the rage. But now, videos have entered the wedding world. I have to admit, it takes some special skills to make it look just right (there are plenty not-so-good ones out there, so look into hiring a videographer – some even include it in their packages these days!). A trend that started in 2009, will go all out in 2010. Added bonus is that it’s eco-friendly! Check out some of my favs here, here, here, here.
My goal is to keep photography and it's community interacting within it's many fields; weddings, portraits, fashion, editorial & design. It's important to learn from one another so please let me know your thoughts and ideas! Please check back often as new topics, discussions, questions, and daily journaling appear.
