1. Exceptionally Gorgeous Moody Australian Elopement

    There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning.  Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see.  Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list.  When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement.  The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool.  I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story.  I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind.  My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light.  My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin.  True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened.  Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...

  2. Dark Romance – A Romantic Woodland Wedding

    For those that are bold enough, adventurous enough, and most certainly open-minded enough, there is a whole other world to be had when it comes to styling your wedding.  Wedding photographers The Byrd Sisters Films teamed up with Alexis Solano Events to create a gorgeously dark and romantic woodland wedding that will leave your head swooning!  Tucked away into the wooded hills of  Malibu Phoenix, like a special little secret, the team of local wedding pros turned an otherwise masculine color palette on its head into a thing of glorious beauty.  While the sweetheart table, covered in mood blooms accented by a regal place setting is certainly repeat worthy, its all about the attention grabbing desserts for me.  Whats a dark romantic woodland wedding without an incredibly pin worthy black wedding cake??  What could one pair with such a beauty, why black 'candied' apples of course!  From the lusciously dark photography to the moody chic styling, I dare you not to covet this dark romance. 

  3. Colors of Freedom Inspired Style For Fall

    One of my absolutely favorite places to look for wedding inspiration are places that are anything but wedding related.  There is something so refreshing about looking outside of a particular genera, essentially seeing how the other half lives if you will.  Elements in women's style such as hair and makeup can be transported from any glossy page, simply insert occasion/event here.  Even attire, like the gorgeous dark floral beauties here, speak to occasions such as bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, engagement photos and more.  Love a gorgeous lip, cant get enough of a certain curl, who cares under what pretense you find that inspiration, all that matters IS that your being inspired.  When Colors of Freedom from Passionate Wedding Photography came my way I was down right giddy.  Fresh, bold editorial yumminess that oozed style perfection. Women's fashion is all about style and is unique as it is organic in evolution.  This little editorial spread features 5 moody dark floral loving looks that are all kinds of style everything.  While the dresses are divine, its the unapologetic bold red lip and wind loving pencil perfect locks that I cant get enough of.  The making to any great style is one that captures perfection all while harnessing effortless ease, like you didnt care, but we know you soooo did and we love you for it.

  4. Art School Cool Urban Hipster Wedding

    Art school cool. It sounds like something you say when you're trying to be clever, however being an art school alumni myself, I can attest, art school cool is indeed a very real thing! Easily sliding in to the world of all things hipster, an art school hipster wedding is pretty much the stuff that modern millennial dreams are made. During last fall's New York Bridal Fashion Week, Aisle Society & Minted hosted a gala that played off the very idea of diversity in the world of weddings, head on. Showcasing inspiration from a beach wedding brought to life complete with sand and palm trees, to a rustic mountain wedding filled with log seating weighing in the 100's of pounds. One faction of the diversity was a uniquely cool art school hipster wedding that paid homage to the collection of boho fair that might typically dress a room. From walls lined with indie art dripping in greens by Sachi Rose Design, to re-purposed trophy's that spoke to achievement, details like vintage vinyl and metal tables breathed life into the whole hipster wedding. In the spirit of oneness meets technology, an unique guest experience was set up via the Wending Machines, which allowed guests to hand select the very items they received as wedding gifts a la vending machine. Each moment was captured in perfectly moody detail...
