Colors from Chris Benz

To say I’m kinda obsessed with Chris Benz and his natural ability to mix colors beautifully is an understatement….I’d love to see even ONE of these dresses turned into a wedding color palette.

The best of backdrops

A carefully selected backdrop can act as a nice statement piece for your wedding photos. These are a collection of some backdrops that I considered for my wedding and some more recent ones that are just too cool for school. This chalkboard backdrop adds a personalized touch with the names of bridal party. The others are rolls of floral wallpaper, fabric, and a specially made white backdrop with scroll frame in the wedding colors.

Simplicity at the water-front

Some of the most striking wedding photos are those found near water, whether it’s the beach or a river or a lake and when it comes to decorating I say the simpler the better. Nature is your friend! No elaborate tulle-covered lattice is needed when you’ve got built in (and cheap!) decorations. Living in Denmark I’m always amazed how the Scandinavians embrace nature in many parts of their life and a wedding is no exception. These are a collection of some of my favorite Scandinavian wedding shots shot near water. Notice how they are not over-the-top, but keep to a simple theme like a simple row boat or an unfussy bouquet.

Tattly proposal idea

With Valentine’s Day and I’m sure lots of pending proposals coming up, I was dying to figure out a cheap but creative way to propose….enter Tattly.  After seeing the new Diamonds design, I knew I had something to work with.  Using the Deming font and my handy assistant Brandon, we laid out the proposal and took strategic reveal shots to clip together for a fun .gif.  It was super quick and easy, and I love how the engagement “ring” could be as simple as the Diamond‘s tattoo.  [makes a great place holder until your ring gets sized properly]

ps. be sure to check out Tattly’s new Valentine’s Day sets!
