Day After Session: Doug and Christine

I ran across Tim Halberg’s photography the other day and couldn’t leave his blog. After finally ripping myself away, I emailed Tim to see if I could feature this newly popular “Day After” session he recently shot in Lake Tahoe. Not only are Doug and Christine absolutely gorgeous, but they infused so much personality into the session, that I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you.

I like to give a special thanks to Tim for sharing the photos. Also, check out some of Doug’s equally fabulous work here. The first shots are from the day after session, but I’ve included a few sneak peeks from their wedding. I made Tim promise me he’d send over the images from the rest of their wedding as soon as he has them up. I can’t WAIT to see the rest.

Bridal Shoot: Jeanette

Just spied this bridal shoot from Anna Page Photography. I think it is so romantic with a little vintage twist to it. These shots are just another reason a bridal shoot can be so fabulous.

Real Wedding: Erica and Matthew

Happy Friday, {grey} readers! I am very honored to share this winter wedding with you today. Photographer Ewan Phelan of The Last Forty Percent Photography captured these beautiful images of a wedding that took place at the Bellamere Winery in London Ontario, Canada and a reception at The FireRock Golf Club. I know that you are counting down the days until you can throw on your bikini and soak in some warm rays, but harken back to the beauty of snowy months with me, as we feast our eyes on this romantic winter wedding! Thanks to Brianna and Ewan for sharing these lovely photos. For more of the wedding, click here

Giveaway Wednesday…er, um, Thursday?

Power cord failure put us down for the count yesterday. But I think this giveaway will most certainly make up for it. For those of you that are working on getting your new nest ready, I think you may find yourself falling in love with the fine art photography from Trever Hoehne.

Trever’s work is like Monet meets Rothko meets film. I seriously can’t name a photographer I love more than Trever. How luck am I that he’s willing to part with a limited edition print? What the heck? I want to enter this giveaway!

Leave a comment, and tell us what you love. The randomly chosen winner will receive their choice of an 8×8 print from Trever’s Blurry Things site.

Here’s a shot of Trever’s work in a gallery. This is what my walls aspire to:

Cutie!

I’m sure there are severals schools of thought when it comes to the whole wedding album thing. I’ve gotta say, if you’re going for a sort of organic look, then you might just love this cutie little album, which has just enough handmade charm to make it oh-so-sweet.

I think this would make for a lovely little gift. Or perhaps a cute spin on the whole guest book thing? Maybe fill the book with pics of you and your love, from birth thru present. Guests will enjoy looking at your adorable photos while they leave their best wishes! Hmmm…the excuses to buy this album are stacking up!

{arranged} photos!

I can’t begin to tell you how lucky I am that not one, but TWO unbelievably fabulous photographers attended our workshop. Jessica Claire (who is already my new friend) and Jasmine Star (who I might force to be my friend because she’s just so cool) were kind enough to bring along their camera and take some lovely photos while they weren’t slaving over their arrangement. Special thanks to both of them for attending AND for taking these beautiful shots! 

To purchase tickets for our next event on Sunday, May 31 from 3-5pm (don’t worry…that’s NOT Memorial Day weekend…I checked!) click here

Ahhhh….

These images from Victoria Pearson are absolute perfection, and when I look at them, I want to take a nap. Hmmm…I mean…they are so peaceful and lovely, I can’t help but breathe in, sigh, and soak it all in. Victoria is an advertising photographer, but she’s the best of the best, and so inspiring, I just had to share. I think these images would make for lovely shower inspiration. I threw in a little goodie from Martha to start us off.

Props

I found this amazingly girly and totally unnecessary umbrella and spent some time trying to figure out a plausible excuse for its purchase (because I secretly adore the absolutely extravagant ruffles):img-thing-5

And then it hit me. Props. That’s right…as in props to use in your wedding photos. Sans the Scarlett-O’Hara-ness that this umbrella boasts, I really think the whole idea can be a barrel o’ fun. Here are some fun (and NOT cheesy…because cheese can sometimes accompany props) ideas for engagement and wedding shoots using props.
