Lush and Romantic Bridal Inspiration Shoot | Chicago Stylized Shoot

While I was in Chicago, in April, I collaborated with model Anna DeBlecourt on this lush and whimsical bridal inspiration shoot. Not only is she a stunning model, but also has a lovely eye for design and style and was a huge part in the coordination of this shoot. In fact, she put all of this together!
We didn’t let unfortunate weather rain on our parade… and rather, used it as an excuse to move our shoot to a beautiful conservatory, which really served to pull our vision together.
This shoot was inspired by dreamy hues of purple, lush florals and whimsy.

Enchanted Ireland Couples Photos | Fairytale Castle Ruin Engagement | Julia & Kenny

What could be more magical than getting to photograph some fellow photographers at a dreamy castle ruin location in Ireland? I can’t think of anything either.

Kenny and Julia are a wonderfully talented photo and video team in Ireland, by the name of Wonderfulife Productions. Julia has been my second shooter for my weddings in Ireland and it was such an honor to get to have her in front of my camera!

Julia got all dolled up with makeup by C Beauty and hair by Bliss Bridal Styling. She also rocked a vintage Chariot Marie gown and whimsical floral crown by Love Sparkle Pretty. Combine all that, with her dapper gentleman, and an ancient ruin location….and you’ve got quite a dream shoot!

Fairytale Elopement at San Francisco City Hall | {Danielle and Shawn}

In October, I got the opportunity to head back to San Francisco City Hall for another dreamy elopement. I can’t get enough of this place! And when you see the photos, you will know why. It is architectural MAGIC!!! It looks like something out of a Disney princess movie…. the place where Beauty and the Beast would dance…the place where Cinderella would attend a royal ball….just gorgeous!

I had so much fun with Danielle and Shawn! They were all about getting married, getting some gorgeous photos, and having a fun day. After their ceremony, we stopped at a cute little deli, for some lunch, before heading off to the woods for some more shooting. I truly had such a fun day with them and can’t believe how the hours flew by. It was the perfect wedding day!
