Maura & Adam are getting married in Aruba THIS WEEK!! These two and their adorable 1.5 year old, Max, opted to do a family lifestyle engagement shoot vs “traditional” engagement photos and boy, was that the right choice. Max is at such a fun age filled with curiosity, energy, and lots of emotions. Candids is really where it’s at with a youngster like this, so we are SO thrilled they hired the queen of kiddo candids, Vienna Glenn Photography. Lea caught all of the high’s and low’s of being almost 2.
When thinking about our brand and our dream client, it's those who aren't afraid to be different. The wedding industry is over saturated with likeminded individuals creating these beautiful events that we've seen created a hundred times. It's not to say that is a bad thing, it' just not our thing. We pride ourselves on being different, on creating something people want to pin...not something that's already been pinned over and over again.
Ok- let me start by saying….this couple right here…we love them SO much! They are so joyful and funny and kind and we are SO excited for their upcoming wedding. We met Caroline through Bright Event Rentals, where she currently works. We’ve had the pleasure of doing “work lunches/happy hours” and styled shoots with her in the past via our industry connection, but now it’s time for HER to be the bride. If I’m being honest, Caroline is my (Kris) spirit animal. We are so alike, it’s insane. We are so honored and excited to be a part of her upcoming wedding at El Chorro this summer. Both Italians and Greeks will be in attendance so you KNOW it’s going to be an unforgettable event.
In celebration of their 1 year anniversary, we wanted to share Annika & Aaron’s intimate Cinco De Mayo wedding with all of you. A&A were married at one of the most popular wedding venue’s in Arizona- El Chorro. The mountain views, desert landscape, and lush greenery make it a show-stopping venue for not only the locals, but especially for the out-of-towners!! Now don’t get me wrong, the views are great and all but HAVEYOUHADTHESTICKYBUNS?!?!?!?!
Working in the wedding industry can sometimes feel like a game of copy/paste/repeat. When blush and ivory aren't just a trend anymore, they are forever wedding colors that aren't going anywhere...we found ourselves in need of a colorful creative outlet. We decided to design a rainbow shoot with the help of some of our most favorite creatives.
Charles and Alex met back in 2007 at University of Michigan. They were both signed up to attend a summer-long leadership training program with their church and ended up being in the same carpool down to Virginia Beach! That summer, they both felt an instant spark, however, they did not start dating until a few years later.
If you had a heartbeat, a TV, and any sort of interest in weddings - you were captivated by The Royal Wedding last year. The lush greenery, the garden atmosphere, and the grandiosity of the event took our breath away. We’re a world away from Windsor, but we set out to create a royal inspired black tie garden shoot, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Kellye & Trevor were married this past New Year’s Eve in Chandler, Arizona at SoHo63. It was said to be one of the “coldest and wettest NYE” in like 25 years!!! (2 words usually not used to describe Arizona weather… that’s for sure). But these two didn’t let the weather ruin their special day. Instead, they embraced it, we moved the ceremony inside, and they still had their first NYE kiss as husband and wife when the clock struck midnight.
With brunch weddings being one of today’s hottest trends, brunch was the leading inspiration behind this shoot. Vibrant and natural colors was the second. For the cost conscious couple, brunch weddings pose the best compromise of on-trend and on-budget. For the same reason brunch weddings have become such a craze, we predict they’ll remain a wedding mainstay for years to come. Because really, who doesn’t love brunch? A pop of color, bubbly, breakfast food, and love! Best served before noon.
As promised, today we are sharing all about the real wedding we were able to be a part of with Sinclair & Moore last summer through their Real Wedding Workshop. You can read more about our experience at the actual Sinclair & Moore Workshop here.
Paige & Peter were married last June at DeLille Cellars on a typical Seattle, Washington day filled with both rain and sunshine. It was fairly cold and rainy most of the day, but the sun peeked through the dark clouds just in time for photos & ceremony. If you can imagine this…these images are filled with Steve’s “Plan B”. Did you catch that? THIS WAS THE BACKUP PLAN!!!!!! To see this day unfold and see every single detail so perfectly thought out was something I’ll never forget.
