STEPH | BOUDOIR FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

Meet beautiful Steph!!  Steph is strong, confident woman and has such a positive outlook and attitude. I think it comes through in her images. She’s a true survivor!! When I asked her if I could share a few of her images on my blog, this is what she had to say:

“I’m happy to let you share them, and I’m honored to represent and hopefully inspire other “mature” women who may be telling themselves they’re too old to do a fun and sexy boudoir shoot.  It was definitely out of my comfort zone but it was a huge self-esteem booster and the whole experience was a blast. Thanks for making it so much fun and for capturing beautiful, artistic images that my husband and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. I will definitely recommend you and your boudoir shoots to my girlfriends!”

Thank you Steph!! I love that my clients feel empowered by this experience. Thanks for letting us share your images and message! ;) Thank you also, to Emily J. for bringing out the best in Steph with her gorgeous hair and makeup.





STELLA & TIM | MAYOWOOD STONE BARN WEDDING

Stella & Tim hosted such a unique celebration, centered around the ceremony that united them and husband and wife. The beautiful details were lovely (in fact, my assistant and I could not stop gushing about them all day), but the things that resonate most to me, were the moments during the ceremony when Tim wiped the tears from Stella’s face. It was the moments when they couldn’t stop smiling at each other. It was beautiful to witness. The ceremony was made even more personal, due to the fact that it was performed by Tim’s parents, who are pastors.

After the morning ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious lunch, toasts and dancing to a 17 piece swing band! It was quite fun! I must give a huge, huge resounding ‘THANK YOU’ to Jennifer from Premier Planning Services and her husband for planning and coordinating this event. They couldn’t have possibly done a better job and I am so lucky to get to work with amazing vendors like Jennifer week after week. I also loved the incredible florals by Summer Harsh. So amazing!! Thank you ladies!  And, thank you to Stella & Tim for entrusting me to document your day.

Katie and Andrew are the sweetest couple! Their wedding day brought lots of heat, humidity and occasional bursts of rain, but they didn’t let it ruin their day. In fact, it was all about their love, their ceremony and the start of their new lives. I am so happy for them as they begin their marriage stationed in Germany, while Andrew serves our country. A special thank you to Rita and the amazing crew at Premier Planning Services for coordinating their day flawlessly.
