I am so very happy for my friends Evelyn and Brett! They are expecting their first child any day now. This is going to be one luck little baby boy having such sweet (and gorgeous) parents.
The day was gorgeous while I waited outside at the Shops at Legacy for Nozomi to arrive for her bridal portraits. When she arrived and stepped out of the car in front of the Marriott, I couldn’t helped but be dazzled! Such a beautiful bride!
The Shops provided a fabulously chic settings which fit her perfectly. We started inside the Marriott and then worked our way around the lake and Bishop Road, nothing but gorgeousness and sunshine the whole way.
I so love pretty things, so I was very excited to welcome my friend Catherine and the jewelry she sales into my home for a photo shoot. She is a representative for a company called Stella Dot, and I think I’m in love with these pieces. Many of these are new for spring, so if you are looking for something bright and fabulous, I know just who to set you up with. Just check out this sample of gorgeousness!!
Catherine is a MASTER at putting pieces together, and I think this bracelet combo below is my favorite. The color is just so fantastic and that arrow bracelet *sigh* just so perfect.
If you like these pieces (and you know you do), you should check out her webpage here.
It is a rare and fabulous opportunity that I do studio photography. I learned how to shoot in a studio first before moving to outdoor and I forgot how much I love it!
Meet Amanda! She is an aspiring model who definitely has what it takes. Originally, we were going to do this shoot outside, but the weather was wet and really cold. As it turned out, I think we couldn’t have been luckier!
I scrolled through pages and pages of CD cases looking for that perfect case to encase the loveliness that is the brides wedding photos. It took a while because I had some critiera I wanted to meet: could not be cheap or plastic and had to have an elegant crafty feel.
Ashley from PeachLinen had the perfect choice for me! I love her simple elegant style, and the quick way she can modify a product for her costumers.
Allow me to present the brand new CD case to hold your wedding photos
I am in LOVE with this wedding! Everything was done so beautifully; it was thrilling. Carri has a real eye for style, and it shown brightly on her big day. From the soft pinks of the florals, to fantastically fitted green bride’s maids dresses, and to the trendy diy wooden signs, everything flowed to perfection.
It was hard to believe the day had finally arrived! I was honored to do their engagement photos just months before, and now the day had come. Everyone was so ecstatic! Even as the bride entered her bridal sweet, some of her relatives, the flower girls, and her brides maids were greeting her with excited well wishes and hugs.
The ceremony and reception took place at the gorgeous Ashton Gardens on a bright Saturday morning in July.
Those eyes, girl!! So gorgeous!
Loved this get away! So much joy!
I just had to, had to, include this photo of the dudes getting ready at the beginning of the day. Too fabulous.
Finally half way through the week! I hope everyone is having a fantastic one so far! Mine has been productive…which means I am getting engulfed in editing and then suddenly crashing at about 9 PM like the old person I am.
Here’s a little glimpse at the loveliness I’m working on this week. Can’t wait to post it the wedding photos!!
Men take notes: How do you make a woman feel good about turning another year older? Maybe even make her happy about it while also showing her just how special she is? You throw her a ball of course!!
That’s exactly what Faith’s husband, Luke, did. And it wasn’t just any ball, it was a masquerade. A surprise masquerade to be precise. Oh, the awesomeness! It’s been a while since I’ve seen, let alone photographed a truly formal event (the gorgeousness of weddings does not count), and never before with something as cool as masks!
The fabulous birthday girl arrives!
What a fabulous time it was. Happy birthday faith!
If you have followed me for a while, you have heard me mention the amazing Marie! She has been there from almost the beginning and is the one who designed my logo and fashioned this website.
A few years ago, this amazing lady met Francis.
She had a boyfriend already, and while Francis was interested in Marie, she was very firm that they were just friends. Francis didn’t beg, begrudge, or budged, he just bidded his time being as best a friend as he could.
Then one day, the story took a twist.
Marie hadn’t forgotten the Francis liked her, and he had been patient. Now the time had finally come that Marie could say yes to Francis’ interest.
With love kindled, they struck the most precious romance I think I have ever seen.
At the beginng of this year, Francis proposed to Marie.
She said yes!!
I am honored to take her bridal portraits!
