Engaged: Matt and Jeanette

This shoot was sent over to me by Hello Studios and the moment I saw it, I felt the need to email them back in ALL CAPS as many superlatives I could muster. Of course, it is particularly spectacular thanks to the incredibly creative talents of Lindye Galloway, who I just can’t get enough of! I’m told that Matt and Jeanette really wanted an engagement session that would scream “SUMMER!” and capture their love of the ocean and summertime activities. Mission accomplished!

Thanks to everyone for sharing!

P.S. Jeanette…that bathing suit? I need one, STAT!

UPDATE: The bathing suit is by Juicy Couture, which you can get HERE!!!

Bribery…I mean Giveaway!

My dear Readers!

I’m desperate for your help. So desperate in fact, that I’ve come up with a really fabulous giveaway to bribe encourage you to help out. This encouragement is of course necessary because incidentally, only 1 out of about every 400 readers leaves a comment on Grey Likes. Can you believe that? You are, I realize, rather busy, and happily enjoy perusing your daily pretties in between the comings and goings of a bustling life. But today, I ask, I plea… I beg…

Shabby Apple has some really great dresses, many of which are vintage inspired. They also have a new line of bridesmaid dresses as well as maternity. So this is your chance to win a pretty little number for yourself, or someone you love. Loving the Bette D. and the Ingrid.

So, to win the dress, TAKE OUR SURVEY, and be entered in our giveaway. Also, if you TAKE OUR SURVEY, you’ll get the code for a 10% discount on any Shabby Apple purchase, so everyone gets a little something. Did I mention I want you to TAKE OUR SURVEY??

Today on Grey Likes Baby…

Today on Grey Likes Baby check out this ever so sweet baby shower for photographer Meg Fish and her baby Ella. It was thrown by photographer Christy Schuler, who also shot the event. So many great ideas for any type of shower, including this cake dome made from chicken wire. Brilliant!

Engaged: Whitney and Mike

Whitney and Mike’s engagement session was shot by Vania and Christine of Simply Bloom Photography. Vania and Christine always send over beautiful work and I’m excited to be able to share some with you today. One of my favorite parts of this session is the location…wherever in the world can you find a carpet of purple flowers? Because I want to go there, and get the carpet, and install it in my backyard. I’m weighing the possibilities of importing purple grass for myself. I’ll keep you posted on my progress… But for now, enjoy these pretties…

Congratulations, Whitney and Mike!

H I T C H E D !

I am VERY thrilled to announce that the masterminds behind this Fall’s bridal event, Hitched!, have snagged me to be a part of their event. If you haven’t heard about Hitched! yet, it is, in their words,

“One hell of a showcase event for brides + grooms + curious seekers of a fresh vision in wedding planning.”

So be absolutely sure to check out their site and blog to find out more.

So what will I be doing for Hitched!? I have the incredible honor of curating an alternative bridal fashion show for the event! Holy WOW! It’s going to be absolutely amazing. Perhaps a little inspiration teaser by Kate Towers will get you jived…

So be sure to get your tickets early, because I KNOW this event will sell out, and you don’t want to miss out!

Florence!

Okay, so this is super crazy exciting! A few months back, I was asked by Benfield Photography to style a photography workshop for them. You see, Benfield Photography is a team: Dale Benfield and Meredith McClary. Dale and Meredith are actually getting married in Florence, so the workshop is unique, because it is a “Real Wedding Workshop” where photographers will have a chance to shoot a real engagement session, wedding, and day after session.

But it gets better. The “Real Wedding Workshop” will take place in – no joke – Florence, Italy. ITALY…that little country across the Atlantic that looks like a boot!

Wait…there’s more.

Photographers will be shooting alongside Becker. Oh wait. Stop right there. The Becker. Is that too much to handle? It is for me. Seriously. I get to style a workshop AND a wedding in Florence, Italy with Becker? No joke.

So if you’re a photographer, and you are thinking a trip to Italy next March sounds like a mighty fine idea, then head over to the workshop website to learn more and sign up.

Here’s a little Florence inspiration board to get you all pumped up! Do you know the land??

Lady Aloha

MaeMae Paperie just posted images of her new collection, aptly named, “Aloha!” I seem to have caught the Island Bug, which in my world means an obsession with the desire to sip on Mojitos. While in the sun. Barefoot (obviously). Specifically in the vicinity of waves and sand. You must go check out her new collection, but I thought I’d put together an inspiration board based on her little goodies.

Come check back at noon today. I have a super fun announcement!!!!

Real Wedding: Jenifer and Mat

I feel very honored to be able to feature this wedding, particularly because the bride is a bit of a blog celebrity! Rosa is behind the fabulous blog, Made By Girl (where you must go immediately if you aren’t already a reader).

Jenifer says on her blog that she and Mat wanted to prove that you could have a great time and a beautiful wedding without spending tons of money. She has tons of DIY ideas, resources and vendors, so if you’d like to find out more, be sure to check out the post on her wedding!

Special thanks to the lovely Yvonne Wong for sending over her gorgeous work!

Anniversary: Shannon and Eddie

Shannon and Eddie recently had Edmund Prieto shoot an anniversary session for them and I just can’t say enough about how pretty it is! Edmund along with Renee from OC Prop Girl styled this shoot and surprised Shannon and Eddie with it.  I absolutely adore that they took the time to string some lights throughout the scene as it got dark. And how much do you love Shannon’s hairpiece? I’ve got it on good authority that the hairpiece was made by Renee!

Edmund has done a really beautiful job capturing all the rich, warm colors…and of course the gorgeous couple! I know you will enjoy!
