This is one of my favorite pictures ever of my brother and his dashing groom on their wedding day. I have so many memories of my brother laughing so hard like this when I was a very little girl, and it makes me so happy that he has this dude to keep him laughing. Also, when your brother-in-law asks you to make him a feather hair fascinator, you know he's freaking awesome.
After the worst flu ever (and in JULY of all things!) I need to take a dip in waters like these. Take me back to Italy! Pleasssseeeee!!!!
I'm obsessed with organizing color. I never realized it was such a thing to my brain until we were at the LA farmers market while I was pregnant and I spotted a bunch of peppers in different shades of rainbow. They were all mixed up, and my brain just couldn't handle it. I spent half my time at that stand 1) organizing the peppers by color and 2) trying not to puke from morning sickness. I'm a film photographer- but not one of those film photographers that is All-Shades-of-Cream. I'm all about the color and how it renders on film. Get ready for some pops of turquoise in my #colorfeed!
I know the floral crown thing is so over but is there anything more precious than a little one with hydrangeas?
Literally so exhausted from this week that I am going to bed at 6:30 pm. It's the most beautiful evening and I can not get my body to push on through! Evening used to be my favorite time of day pre-kids and now I can barely make it to dinner! But purple pathways of blooming flowers make it so much better.
Shot an INCREDIBLE session today at @mountainsidelavender farm, cut this lavender to take back, and ran into the most incredible painter, @brendaboylanart who was painting en plain air in the lavender fields. Drank some lavender lemonade and enjoyed the most beautiful afternoon. I need the film baaaackkkkk!!!
So this happened today- @melaniegabrielle is visiting from Florida and she captured this iPhone shot (!!!!!) of my baby girl. When you are the photographer, you are rarely in the photos with your kids, so this is extra meaningful. Also yes she snapped film. Also yes I will be cherishing them forever.
When you are walked down the aisle by your brother to meet your parents and husband at the alter... I'm not crying you're crying. Loved this day.
You can't get more beautiful than this bridal party. I'm kind of a sucker for classic formal portraits.
Absolute stunner by @ponderosa_and_thyme 'a workshop with @sylviagubbins / @sylviabustamante . This cold and rainy day turned out to be perfect thanks to the incredible fortitude of @autumnjohnson /@autumnjohnsonmodel . Dress from my favorite woman, @madamebas from @adoredvintage - everything g she has is just drop dead incredible. We cared for it like a child! 😂 so fun spending the day with @maxine.sferra.photo shooting this!
So I might be in the minority.... but I don't mind it when guests take photos at weddings. I mean, when they impede my duties that's no good, but otherwise I actually try to get it IN the wedding photos. I feel like electronics and technology date photographs and transport you back to that time. One of my favorite pictures of college is me in my dorm room with my GIANT boom box stereo (with 5disk changer and remote! Swag!) holding my giant Nokia phone with LED light up antennae. It.is.awesome. Just think of how many memories are going to come flooding back 20 years from now when the clients look back and see what their friends and family are using to take pictures. While everyone else is calling for unplugged weddings, I'm over here like 'let me take a picture of you taking a picture!" Photographers: document the day. Tell the story. Don't omit and pick and choose based on your own narrative. You'll add layers deep of meaning.
