Day After Love

I always love day after sessions. The couple always looks a little more relaxed…there’s no rush to race your reception or squeeze in pictures with your bridal party and extended family. And I always think couples look all glowy and full of love in their day after sessions, so, of course I love the idea! (And it’s another chance to wear your dress, so why not?!). This session shot by Alicia Pollett feature Mary Harrington and her new hubby.

Additional details: Dress: Vera Wang. Bridal shoes: Jimmy Choo, both gold and ivory silk. Suit: Gieves & Hawkes bespoke (Saville Row, London). Boutonniere: Fritts Roseno. Tie: Hermes. Fur stole: vintage. Headpiece: bespoke Edwina Ibbotson (UK milliner) with Jenny Packham comb. Jewelry: Kojis of London (for her), Harry Winston band (for him). Stationery: Askew Design

Farewell to Summer

As we bid farewell to summer (though I honestly doubt it ever really came at all what with this wimpy weather–but that’s neither here nor there) I wanted to share one final homage to warmer days. This engagement session by Breen Film was shot underwater! I can’t resist the groom to be, who somehow found a tux to take in for the dive. I love how ethereal these images look!

Farm Style Wedding Shoot

Photographer Meghan McSweeney, along with a killer host of vendors, including stylist Lindsay Averette of LK Events and Design, put together a photo shoot set on a farm. I love the soft colored images and the understated elegance of the details. Check out all the awesome vendors below.

Hope you enjoy!

Victor Sizemore

I know you’ve seen a few sneaks of our desert shoot, but Victor Sizemore recently sent over his favorite shots from his mentor session that I styled, and you’ve just got to see more! I’m not only completely obsessed with our too-hot-for-words models, but also with Victor‘s work. Despite the consistent backgrounds, each image is unique and jaw dropping!

From the stylist perspective, this project was a HUGE undertaking. We’ve got rugs, living room furniture, an obnoxiously large coffee table (which at one point was under threat of a saw per its over-sized legs), antique chairs, a ladder, and more lighting gear than you’d care to imagine all set up out somewhere in the middle of the Nevada desert. The final result however was well worth the effort. My favorite scene ended up being our big pile of old porch chairs. Who knew that a few zip ties, a ladder, and a hot model in a ruffled dress could make chairs look so good?

Special thanks again to my friend Victor, who was really great to work with. He is endlessly patient and the most adventurous, down-to-earth, out-of-the-box photographer I’ve had the pleasure to work with. And he has great taste in food and bourbon. What’s more to ask for?

Hope you enjoy!

Pauline in Paris

Meghan McSweeney photographed a very lovely shoot for jewelry designer Pauline in Paris. The images were so sweet, and the jewelry so unique, I thought I’d share a bit. Check out Grey Likes Baby today for a few more images of little ones.

The awesome vendors that contributed to make this shoot possible include stylist/designer Lindsay Averette of LK Events and DesignDresses, Plelaides Vintage Bridal (804) 340-2966 (She is seriously the goddess of everything vintage. You name is, she’s got it), and Carolyn Young who designed the flowers and props.

Snowy Bridal Session

The weather is playing with my emotions. Last week, the thermostat eeked over the 80 degree mark. I immediately dropped what I was doing and made a beeline for the beach. But of course, the warm sun isn’t in permanent residence yet. The next day, it got cold. And then somewhere this weekend, it rained, and the weather report for this week is not looking much warmer. I suppose this is what you might call spring. So while we meander in this in between time, I thought I’d bring you a little bridal session that still conjures wintry sentiments. This is brought to you by the lovely Anna Routh Photography and a host of other vendors, which you can see below.

I’ve got lots more great stuff coming for you this week. My fabulous group of interns are incredibly inspiring, so you’ll start seeing some really fun fresh finds this week!

Without further ado, please feast your eyes upon the lovely bride, Lauren:

A lavender field in the late afternoon is one of the most beautiful and ideal locations I can think of! For this beautiful shoot I headed out to Keys Creek Lavender Farm in Valley Center, California. The shoot was conceived and planned by a very talented group of girls, each with their own unique business. Natasha of Classic Creations made the fresh bouquets full of peonies, roses, cobra lilies, and of course, lavender! They were so gorgeous I think she should make them a staple of her bouquet offerings! Heather Brown {619-739-3948} did this romantic and vintage hairstyle to fit perfectly with the scene, and Nikki List {619-392-6724} did the make-up that went perfectly with the style of dress and the colors of the day. The dress is designed by Melissa Sweet and was generously loaned to us by Cher of my favorite gown boutique, Chez Bride Moderne. I really love working with talented and creative groups of successful women, it is so inspiring! Here are some of my favorite images.

New Obsession: Elizabeth Dye

I don’t know where to begin. All I know is, I’m absurdly jealous of designers like Elizabeth Dye, whose store The English Department, completely embodies everything I define perfection to be. Elizabeth Dye’s new Spring 2010 Collection is feminine, simple, and elegantly detailed. This is on a VERY short list of dresses that I’d track down to try on. Lisa Warninger is responsible for such gorgeous photography of well deserving dresses!
