valentine’s day inspiration

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

This sweet shoot was sent to me by Ana Schechter of Ana Photo. Ana is based out of New York, where she shot this story about childhood love with two of the cutest models I think I’ve ever seen! {In the end, he gets the girl.} There are so many ideas here that could inspire your own engagement pictures. Happy early Valentine’s Day!

A wedding with whimsy

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

This wedding would be all about whimsy and fun! Full of inspiration drawn from Hatch prints. A little bit country meets Anthropologie. Rough hewn wood and worn metals. It could take place in the country just as easily as it could in the city.

{Anthropologie catalog cover; place cards via Real Simple; Hatch print via The Country Music Hall of Fame; Zinnia arrangement via Putnam Place; Cake Topper by The Small Object; Anthro store display; Mailbox via Pottery Barn; Bride in yellow cardigan via MS; I love you card by Yee-Haw; Billy buttons; Red ticking fabric via New Arrivals Inc.}

You say tomato…

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Tomato season is in full flower, and Southerners love their tomatoes. Especially Richmonders – I believe Hanover tomatoes might be as good as gold in these parts.

fall color inspiration

Monday, April 13th, 2009

I love the rich mustard-colored ochre with warm reds and hints of coral orange for a fall bride. Balance these bold colors with touches of black and a warm neutral.
