LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE!!! Happy Pride, friends!! ❤️💛💚💙💜
When we work together on a branding shoot, we bring your story and visual aesthetic to life in a way that is authentically you. We'll spend some time strategizing together, and then I get to connect you with my amazing creative partners to make you look and feel your best for the shoot. Today on the blog my go- to stylist, Alyssa at @cochicstyling, is sharing her expert tips on how to style yourself for professional head shots or your personal branding session! [Link in Profile]
Happy Pride month, friends! 🏳️🌈We had to do some quick thinking for Zach and Rico's session a couple weeks ago when the forecast shifted to thunderstorms, and after chatting, we knew the Art Institute was the perfect place to document their love. I cannot wait to work with these guys and @greatestexpectations for their wedding later this year! 😍
Happy National Donut Day!! (And cheers to the weekend!) 🥂 I usually gravitate to all things chocolate, but the donuts that tempt me most these days are these mini cinnamon sugar ones from @beaversdonuts. I discovered them one chilly winter day at the @chifrenchmarket with Drew, and I'm kind of obsessed now. Even better, there is a donut truck now in my neighborhood that's right along my running route when I'm lucky! What are your favorite donut spots? 🍩🍩🍩
Happy June, loves! All I see is sunshine and weddings for days!!! ☀️ Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to attend weddings of my close friends and family members as a guest rather than the photographer. And as much as I love photographing weddings, there's something really special about spending time with my closest circles as a guest when they are the ones celebrating. 🥂 But the one question they always still ask me is, How do we find the right photographer? So I started compiling a list of things to look for and questions to ask to help them in the process. When Kristina of @visionofeleganceevents asked me what I tell them, I was thrilled to share my tips. If you're in the same boat and not entirely sure where to start, you'll want to check out the most recent Vision of Elegance blog post. I'm talking over there about some factors you should consider when hiring a wedding photographer! 💍📷 [Link in profile.] Beauty: @nikavaughanbridalartists Florals: @dahliabloomschi
I'm so in love with this gorgeous lariat from @bkandleojewelry. And the back of her @amsale gown too!! 😍 Working with Brittany to photograph her jewelry collection involved all of my favorites: travel, NY, wedding style, champagne, and most importantly, good company. So grateful to have gained a friend in the process! 💕If you need some stunning accent pieces for your wedding (or just for fun!), she's your gal!!!
It's easy to take our liberty for granted, but history and current events remind us that freedom isn't free. I'm grateful to all the men and women who have served and died that we may have so many personal liberties. I cannot even begin to imagine the immense sacrifices they have made, and for the grief many still bear as they remember their fallen comrades and family members. Today I honor them. Today I remember their bravery and patriotism. Today I thank them for their service. Today I'm also mindful of those who still face oppression. And today I am grateful for the opportunity to exercise my rights that others may also more fully taste freedom and equality. 🇺🇸
Happy weekend, friends!! I'm incredibly excited to soak up some sunshine this weekend (while it lasts) since it's the first Memorial Day weekend in years I haven't had a wedding. We're heading out in a bit for some tacos and a brewery tour at @cruzblancachi, which has been on my radar for awhile now. Getting in some miles, editing some pretty photos, decluttering our apartment, brunches + BBQ's are also on the docket. Rain or shine, it's seriously nice to have some down time. What about you? How are you spending the weekend? | Food by @vickimarquez_ + styling by @taanying
