Laws of Love

Photographer said: “Sometimes you meet couples that inspire you to be a better version of yourself just because you see them bringing the best out of each other. And that is Julia and Eddy. They met in grad school while they were studying law. Ask Julia about their first date and everything that went (wrong?) and you’ll know they were made for each other. Talk to them today about their careers, their aspirations, their hopes and dreams for their future and the world, and you’ll know you’re in the company of two people that are truly magical. They balance each other. Make each other laugh. Show adoration and respect and commitment. In a really deep and honest way. So thankful to call them friends, and so excited for their upcoming wedding.”

“Laws of love”, not only did these love birds meet in law school but this photographer, Rachel Goble, captures their genuine public affection in a city in California. The color red reminds us of the color of love, this red hat is a perfect touch for this engagement shoot.

DIY: Ping Pong String of Lights

This simple DIY can light up your whole room; and, not to mention, it also adds a little pop of flare to your string of lights!

Supplies

A string of Christmas lights
Ping Pong Balls
Knife

Step one: Take your ping pong balls and cut an X shape into it with your knife. *To make this a simpler process I heated the knife first with a candle.

Justin wanted me to wear an oven mitt so I wouldn’t slice my fingers

Step two: Slide each individual light into a ping pong ball.

That’s it! And the awesome thing about this piece of decor is that you can enjoy it anywhere. It gives extra light to your kitchen counter, and it’s adorable when it’s draping from your head board. It has definitely helped me see in the middle of the night when baby girl wakes up!

 

 

 

Happy crafting!

A Rustic Whimsical Wedding Day

The style of this session is rustic with a modern twist, and the theme is romance in a summer garden. The set is decorated with soft and fresh colors, such as yellows, pinks, and greens, with gold details being the emphasis to depict the luxurious feel. We found this little secret garden in the urban city; it is so quiet and beautiful, and is a perfect location for a whimsical wedding.

The grand dessert and cake is all designed and handcrafted by Kitty Wong Pastry Shop. The wedding cake, also the main focus of the dessert table, is made with exquisite details like ruffles and gold sequins. The cake was painted with white and gold watercolor effects, and decorated with pink and ivory flowers; all the details are handmade and are edible!

 

Our planner, D’Love Affair Wedding & Events, sourced all vendors and made this session happen. The set is provided and designed by Past Pieces, from small details like vintage books and suitcases, to big items like the wooden doors, and beautiful couches. We love the rustic dessert table, supported by wine barrels.

 

The beautiful wedding dress, from Pronovias’ new 2015 collection, is provided by Clara Couture Bridal. This dress features an unique loose strap design, with elegant bead work. The jewelleries, designed by Mirror Mirror Bijoux, also complimented the pink sequins dress with its unique colors and textures.

Mommy & Her Twin Princesses

Im a mom of one but moms of multiples are seriously amazing in my eyes!! I don’t know how you ladies do it. I love how you can see the love in these three, they are serious such beautiful little girls. Contrast love.

From Photographer:  ”Meet Tonya, Olivia & Harper. A momma and her pretty twin girls. Precious miracles. Tonya has been waiting for these two angels for quite some time. It was quite a journey getting them here. She is an amazing, beautiful mother with so much love for her children. These sweet girls are nearly three months old and as cute as ever. I loved watching Tonya take care of her babes…and multitask with two at a time. Moms of twins are supermoms! (I know first hand! Thanks, mom!) At the beginning of this session, I kept mixing them up, but now I can totally tell these sweeties apart. They are both so beautiful…and so loved. P.S. Thanks Audrey for letting us use your house.Lifestyle photography is a way of documenting genuine moments in a family’s life. It’s real, it’s raw and it’s beautiful Simply take pictures of a family doing what they do and doing what they love. Capture the way they interact with one another. Freeze genuine moments”.
