Hey guys, Today I want to show you a few of my favorite things in life and in this business. I used to work as a wedding editor so I know everything about weddings. I discovered new wedding trends daily and I got to see the world’s best wedding photography. But it doesn’t mean my life only surrounds around weddings.
There are so many things I enjoy – from being creative (I love taking portraits of everyone and everything and I enjoy handwriting cards and envelopes) to long walks with our family dog, drinking coffee in the morning and getting lost on Pinterest and Tumblr. Here you can find a selection of my top list of favorites, so you can get to know me better and see if I am a great match for you as your photographer.
The golden hour
The best time to take photos. I would recommend all my couples to schedule in time for photos at sunset. Those photos are pure magic.
I just love the mediative process of handwriting a card or envelope. It’s a huge thing at weddings right now, because of it’s luxurious feel. Let me know if you are looking for a calligrapher for your wedding or project.
American wedding traditions
Matching bridesmaids dresses, a first look, naked cakes, the list goes on and on. I get my inspiration on wedding blogs such as Style Me Pretty, Wedding Sparrow, Magnolia Rouge and Once Wed.
Al fresco weddings
Especially when it’s set in the Provence or Tuscany. Al fresco means natural, organic, all outside, minimalistic, pastel shaded and simply stunning!
Loose bouquets with silk ribbons
Flowers are one of those things you should spend money on on your wedding day. They look so amazing in photographs. Fine art weddings and large and loose bouquets are a match made in heaven.
