Eeny Meeny Miny moe

This actually isn't as random as the title denotes. It's kind of chronological. Images from the studio - our first wedding of 2010 way back in FEBRUARY if you can believe that. What this means is I actually have a backlog of images that is about 7 months long (minus the few weddings were things were just too insane to even pick up the camera. We will have to rely on the professionals for those.)

Sonya and Douglas wed in their historic home in the Hollywood Hills..I have the image by Isabel Lawrence Photography somewhere, but we'll start with these.

Isn't my little shop girl the cutest?!!! We have a good time.

The most amazing thing I did for this wedding is unfortunately not documented here. Sonya wanted a vintage style cascading bouquet - I used cattleya orchids, carmel antique roses and looped in strands of tuberose/freesia/jasmine to form the cascading part. A very nerve wracking experience. Completely improvised and it actually looked good. Amazing actually! Have to defer to Isabel's images for those. Coming soon. x

summer squeeze

Well... a lot of things have been happening here, which you will all be privy to shortly. Mostly, there has been an abundance of flowers. ferns, vines, underwatery-looking things, tree of heaven, coral peonies, dahias, knock-your-socks-off clematis, and a new world of imagination and playing. Not just with flowers mind you. I do have a nearly 3 year old gal who is constantly keeping me on my toes with her boldness, creativity, tenderness, spiderman/wonderwoman/cowboy/superhero role playing (I get to be Mary Jane!) and man can she make me laugh. It has been our busiest season ever and it has been good. Still a few months to go - but feeling pretty lovely about what we've done so far. Wanting to share more than I can right now since I am so far behind. But I reckon we will have a little time to catch up sooner or later. Thanks for hanging in there!

Lots of real weddings on their way... here and on GLOSSY PAGES. (yippee!!!!!!)

In the meantime....
we were featured on Snippet and Ink's NEW site which is so gorgeous and I am very jealous

This is little bit of something we did kind of a la carte with some great women...
I'm digging color lately. monochromatic shhhhmomo-chromatic. It has it's time and place but color is so much fun and so JUICY. Be bold I say...don't be afraid. Color is hip.
