Beautiful Shady Trees & Some Lovely Tall Green Grass, A Perfect California Nature Filled E-Session

I’ve mentioned before that I’m always on the lookout for places to shoot photographs.  You’d be amazed at how difficult it is sometimes to find places where you can shoot without being kicked out or charged or in some cases even ticketed, which I recently found out happened to a photographer friend at a location I’ve shot at quite often. Scratch that location of my list!  Anyhow, having said that, when you find a location like the one in today’s engagement session, it’s seriously like finding the holy grail.

Photographed by Jacqueline Photographer, Jen and Nate’s perfect California nature filled shoot is, in my opinion, absolutely stunning.  I love the bright green grass against the brilliant purple and blue of Jen and Nate’s shirts.  And the golden hour light shinning through the trees behind the couple in many of these images is simply spectacular as well.  I am a big fan of this session and I hope you will be too!  So…have a look and see for yourself.

Fab You Bliss Fashion 5 – November 30, 2011

Hopefully you’ve noticed so far in my Wednesday’s Fab You Bliss Fashion 5 posts that I only feature garments and accessories affordable for everyday people. Shopping this way has always been a key ingredient for me, so I figured I must pass on the process to you.  When looking to buy new pieces, I look for quality and items which appear more expensive than they actually cost.  I refuse to pay ridiculous prices for anything…that means I will never buy anything over $200, even boots and bags. That’s right…I will wait until they go on sale before I spend that kind of money.  I just don’t think it’s smart to spend frivolously and I can always find better uses for $200 or more.  I’m sure you can too!  So I’m continuously on the hunt for new places to find great deals that are well made and when I find them I will share them here.

Everything seen here is under $200 and a couple of items are on sale, so if you like them…jump on it, they might not last long!

Twinkling White Lights & Sparkling Wedding at The Gorgeous Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota Florida

For most photographers, when a bride and groom choose to do a “First Look” like Aaryn and Ryan have here, it is definitely a good thing.  Personally…I think it’s an even more special moment between a bride and groom than if they were to wait to see each other at the alter because with a First Look, even though their photographers are close by, and maybe even some of their wedding party as well, doing a First look gives a bride and groom a more private moment to really express their feelings than is usually possible at the alter.  Obviously each moment is special in it’s own way, however I bring up the First Look because Aaryn and Ryan’s is even more unique with Ryan being blindfolded.  That is such a brilliant idea!  And in this case, I really like that you can see some of their of the bridal party watching on behind them. It adds a sweetness and extra emotion that you can feel from their friends and families’ love.

 

Photographed by K and K Photography, Aaryn and Ryan’s gorgeous wedding was held at The Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota Florida.  And oh-my-goodness, isn’t Aaryn’s bouquet just amazing?  I’m a sucker for Hydrangeas and Roses, but add in Peonies and “You had me at hello!”  Plus there isn’t enough room here to talk about how beautiful this venue is and the gorgeousness that’s beams with the use of the twinkling white lights.  But none of the florals or beauty of the property can compare to the obvious love and happiness between Aaryn and Ryan.  And in my opinion, that’s a sure sign of a successful wedding and marriage to come.  But more importantly, its what really matters.

Chelsey + Austin’s Dazzling Detail Filled Wedding at Smithview Pavilion

Photographed by JoPhoto, Chelsey and Austin’s Smithview Pavilion wedding, was an absolute detail packed success including bird houses, wood table centerpieces with mason jars filled with bird seed and tea lights, burlap table runners, silverware tied with twine, a “just married” banner draped across the head table, personalized hand fans for all the ceremony guests, and on and on and on! Oh, and their wedding cake had hand made love birds as a cake topper which stood on a wood cake stand as well! And at the end of their wedding celebration, Chelsey and Austin and all of their guests went out into Smithview Pavillion’s field to light and release Chinese sky lanterns.  It was an amazing send off and a fabulous ending to an extraordinary wedding day!
