"Super glam, super clean. Gold, mint and blush." Yes, please! Alex at Luxe Event Productions was speaking my language when he explained the overall concept for a Spring styled shoot taking place at Union/Pine. I had been in love with that color palette and had some gorgeous papers in the perfect shades that I knew would photograph really well. I love so many things about styled shoots but my favorite is that I get to try new things and test out interesting layouts and concepts that could potentially work for a future couple.

This shoot with Petalos and Erich McVey was definitely one of my favorites (wait, don't I say that about every shoot? Maybe it's true– I work with some amazing people around here!) Stephanie from Petalos had a vision: soft pastels, watercolor details, natural surroundings, and two gorgeous brides. I loved helping bring it all to life. Here's the link to our feature on Style Me Pretty, and the lovely list of professionals involved is below.

So, my sister was married in October. Did ya hear?! I know, I know, I think I've talked about it a million times. It was such a fun and beautiful event, and we were all dyyyying to see the photos. Brittany Lauren Photography did NOT disappoint– that girl has some CRAZY talent! It was so exciting to see the photos, but then about ten times more amazing to hear shortly after that the photos were picked up by one of our favorite wedding blogs, Style Me Pretty! Check out the feature here. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite shots, and of course the list of all the fabulous people involved in this wedding:

One of my favorite blogs in the world is Oh So Beautiful Paper. It is the best place to see the latest and greatest in the paper goods world, and I'm constantly swooning over each post. I was lucky enough to be featured on there last year, and this week my submission of my sister's wedding invitations was also picked up! This was my first invitation suite using foil, and you should all know by now that I *love* foil. It's just so fun and adds a nice, simple touch. Check out the feature here! And many thanks to Paul Rich Studio for shooting the suite for me– it's another lovely addition to the gallery on my website. He has done a perfect job capturing the details of my work in photos, and I'm so grateful!
Today I'm sharing the logo I created for the lovely Katie & Monica of Gather Event Planning, located here in Portland. I'm on a "Gather high" today as I've fallen even more in love with them after seeing those gals in action at my younger sister's wedding this weekend. All I can say is– WOW, and THANKGODFORTHEM!!! They are professional, fun, and classy women who just know how to throw a party. Their attention to detail, organization and incredible people-skills are exactly what is needed when putting on a big event. My sister met with Katie several months ago to discuss her wedding plans, and after their meeting my sis called saying, "I can't believe I thought I didn't need a coordinator! I can already tell this is one of the best decisions we'll make for our wedding." These are the women you want with you on your big day. To take care of and think of everything to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible. To be sure your vision comes to life. To manage interesting personalities and conflicts with grace. To have the most calming, nurturing presence that when you are anxious and about to pass out they make you feel 100000x better!
So that's my experience with Gather in a nutshell :) Another one of my favorite projects we worked on together was a Modern Italian styled shoot that was published on Style Me Pretty. Here are a few of my favorite shots!
