I ran across Twigs & honey while reading a blog by Elizabeth Messina. She is a wonderful photographer who got the privilege of photographing one of my absolute favorite fine art photographers Jose Villa. He is someone I look up to and respect madly in the photography world. He recently published a book that talks about his techniques. I just had to have it! The way I see it is, your not born an artist but born with the talent. It’s something that you need to practice day in and day out, never ceasing to learn new techniques or try new things. The best way to learn something to the T is to try and fail. Wouldn’t it be great to just learn every time we do something right? But we learn more every time we do something wrong. That must be why I’m so smart from my teenage years!!! Sorry mom, I love you! I know your reading this. She’s probably thinking “Oh my Lord, ain’t the the truth”!?!
Back to Twigs and Honey!! The designer makes the prettiest hair pieces for your wedding day! Talk about a gorgeous way of adding flare and style to your hair! The pictures would just be amazing and so classy! I just had to share this website with everyone!
It’s no secret that I LOVE fashion! Floral dresses, High heeled pumps, sparkled vintage tops, colorful and big accessories. I cant help it, I’m drawn to the beauty of clothes. I love when my brides love fashion just as much as me! When I’m on a shoot and my bride shows up wearing an adorable outfit it gives me butterflies! Seriously! Photographing a beautiful couple in beautiful clothes and a gorgeous location! OMG whats better then that?? To me fashion is a piece of art! So when I came across polyvore, I was in my own little heaven! My poor husband really needs to hide my credit card when I’m browsing fashion on line. He sure has his hands full with me and my shoe collection. But he loves it, don’t let him try to fool you! =) I put together some of my favorite board sets to share with all my fashion loving girls (and guys). . LOVE! It’s also a great guideline of stuff to wear to one of my photoshoots ♥
Janice and Richard have been planing their wedding from miles apart. Across the country from each other to be exact. Now that takes dedication! Richard had a few days to come to the west coast so we took the opportunity to do their engagement session. They picked the Wilder Ranch in Santa Cruz which was absolutely adorable! A cute little farm with goats that I got to pet! The littlest things excite me =)
This wall was amazing. I loved the texture to itThis is one of my faves of the whole bunchLove it!!
I absolutely love Devon and Jack. The first time we met each other was at a Starbucks on Lakeshore in Oakland. As soon as I met them, I knew that I instantly liked them. Jack from Ohio and Devon from California both have very laid back personalities and are super easy to get along with. The meeting was going great, the coffee was good, we were laughing ,talking and then…. dun dun dun. I open my print sample album and spill coffee all over the person sitting next to me. I was mortified and trying to figure out how on earth to get this persons attention who was so engaged in his cell phone conversion to tell him I just spilled my delicious white chocolate mocha all over his expensive looking jacket. I look over at Devon and she assures me that its ok and he will never know and not to tell him. Taking a deep breath in I pull away from telling him and opt to just try and wipe it up with a paper cloth. Don’t judge me! But as you can see they still hired me!! Even though I spill coffee on people =)
They held a beautiful small ceremony with their close family and friends to watch them as they married and later had one heck of a reception. I loved being able to watch Jack and Devon together. They love each other so much and thats all you can notice when you are with them. The way they look at each other is adorable. You guys are so cute and I’m so happy to have been able to share this day with you! Thank you for having Adam and I be your photographers.
This is the part they couldn’t wait for. I love this photo. Jack was so full of emotion and so incredibly happy. He just got to marry the love of his life and I think it just hit him. All of their family and friends had the same sweet personalities of Jack and Devon. Everyone was so kind,I loved this group of people!
Isn’t her sleeve just fabulous? I love it.They made the beer themselves as party favors for everyone! It was really yummy, good job guys ! Adam and I got to take two home =)
The Super friend cape! That was awesome.
Tiffany and Jeremy chose to do their engagement shoot at Fort Cronkhite in Marin County. It was where Jeremy had asked Tiffany to marry him. the weather turned out to be lovely. They were very relaxed in front of my camera which made the shoot easy and fun. Jeremy’s son came along for the ride and I got to capture a few family shots at the end. They are so cute =)
I had the privilege to attend and photograph Nolan’s first birthday where his Dol was being celebrated. In Korean tradition it is customary to celebrate a Dol on a child’s first birthday. A table was set in front of Nolan with several objects placed in front of him. The first object he chooses is said to predict his future and what his life holds for him. Nolan chose the rice which represents a long life. The party was Beautiful! Lucy, Nolan’s mother set up and made everything you see! She did a fabulous job! And that cake! it was absolutely perfect! They are a gorgeous family and are blessed with beautiful children. Happy Birthday Nolan!
