As a wedding photographer in Los Angeles, I am constantly surrounded by amazingly talented wedding vendors who love and adore the bridal industry just as much as I do. And while I spend much of my time capturing real Southern California weddings, it is a lot of fun to mix it up and collaborate with creative individuals on dreamy styled bridal shoots. It is truly an invaluable time that allows us to let our imaginations run wild! After all, as wedding vendors we spend quite a bit of time studying and obsessing over all things wedding, therefore these opportunities are a great time for us to let those creative juices out in a productive way!

So with the upcoming Easter holiday in mind, a few local LA wedding pros and I came together to create a breathtaking bohemian-chic bridal concept that incorporated multiple Easter elements! Our goal was to put together fresh and new ideas to help inspire the every day bride looking to add a little bit of whimsy into her upcoming wedding! We tied in pastel hues, three ethereal Claire Pettibone gowns, an oversized bridal bouquet & flower crown, DIY paper mache Easter eggs, a decorated horse and so much more. As for the location, with all of the delicate details we selected a tucked away horse trail in the outskirts of Los Angeles to add an earthy and rural component to our shoot. The hidden pathways, lovely riverbed and perfect lighting most definitely added the rustic edge we were hoping for!

A big thank you to all of the WONDERFUL and, oh so very, talented individuals that made this bridal session completely swoon worthy! This bohemian, Easter bridal inspired shoot can also be found as a premier feature on Green Wedding Shoes!

“A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” – Marion C. Garretty

Melanie and Audrey are two sweet sisters that I had the pleasure of growing up with. From awkward pre teen years to watching The Bachelor every Monday night when we were home from college, it is always so much fun getting the chance to get together with old friends! And being asked to photograph those same friends I’ve known for so long is most definitely the highest compliment in my eyes!

In honor of Mother’s Day Melanie and Audrey thought it would be a fun idea to take some portraits to give to their mom as a thoughtful surprise. And let’s face, what mom wouldn’t LOVE getting pictures of their kids on Mother’s Day! We wanted to choose a location that had an authentic and urban Los Angeles vibe, so we ventured into the heart of LA to Moe’s Flowers on Melrose. Not only were we able to capture some amazing sister portraits, but we were completely surrounded by fresh blooms everywhere we turned – which added a lovely feminine touch to the entire shoot! Flower shops and nurseries will forever be my favorite places for natural light wedding photography and lifestyle sessions!

Much like any major city, Los Angeles has its fair share of unique venues and hidden gems that make for great locations for lifestyle sessions as well as wedding portraits. While many people who are planning important photo opportunities immediately jump to lavish and iconic landmarks, I believe the small and quaint areas within a busy city make for some of the most beautiful and memorable settings for any type of photographs. Perhaps you met your significant other at a hole in the wall coffee shop down the street or every time you walk past that charming boutique hotel your heart skips a beat…those are the kinds of places that I love to photograph clients because those locations hold a special meaning to them! And trust me, years from now when you look back at those pictures you will not only remember the special occasion and reason for the shoot, but also the venue where they were taken.
