Shayla O. wedding photos


I am in love with these photos from Shayla's April 5th wedding -- Ryan of Ryan Moore Photography killllled it. I mean, come on. How beautiful are these photos? And for those people who live in my hometown who are possibly reading this might be surprised to find out that these were taken in Elk Grove! Say what? Show Ryan some love and let me know what you think about Shayla's fun half-up braided style (oh and check out her bridesmaid's wavy 'do -- it was one of my favorites from the day!) Makeup by the always fab Dominica of Outer Beauty Airbrush.

Trial run with Sandy N.


Last Saturday my day was filled with back to back to back trial runs all around the city. My final stop was for my trial with Sandy, who I've been emailing back and forth with for a while now about her big day. Her friend tagged along and they chatted and caught up about this and that while I got to work putting together what I hoped was what she was looking for for her bridal 'do. 30 minutes later we had this:

Luckily it was exactly what Sandy was hoping for! She looked completely gorgeous and I can not wait to see her full look on the big day in September! What do you guys think?

Stay tuned for more coming later this year...

Abby H. wedding photos


I just got back some wedding photos from one of my other late December weddings, and lemme tell ya, Abby looked absolutely gorgeous! We ended up winging it the morning of because she decided she wanted something totally different from our trial run a few months earlier; and I think it turned out great! She wore her veil for a long portion of the day, so a majority of the photos include it. Ya know, I go back and forth on whether or not I'd want a veil on my wedding day, but my brides all look so beautiful with them on it sometimes can really complete the look. Duh, right? Haha - but veils aren't a definite thing anymore; lots of brides are forgoing that tradition (much to their moms' and grandmothers' dismay). Abby chose to rock one and she looked amazing. Check out the photos for yourself and you'll see what I mean!

Kiley S. wedding photos


Ok, I mean.. come on. Evan Hunt Photo captured some of the most ridiculously gorgeous photos of Kiley's big day. Just take a peek and you'll see what I mean. He is such a talented photographer and Kiley is an absolutely stunning bride; the perfect combination. For Kiley's wedding hair style we went with vintage glam waves, And with Shannon O'Brien's beautiful wedding day makeup I think Kiley looked like the epitome of the perfect bride. So much pretty going on in these ones folks. What do you all think?
