engagements : wakako + everardo

Wakako and Everardo, another sweet couple. I am very fortunate to have attracted some really sweet people in my business. It allows me to put my best work forward.  It can take a lot of time to put together a shoot and i’m lucky enough that my clients are so understanding in this process. It literally can take up weeks of planning, from outfit to time of shoot, to all the little details. Sometimes there are last minute changes and in the end, it all comes together like this. Wakako and Everardo, i hope you guys had a great time. It was one of my longest shoots because we stopped for lunch before the shoot (I wanted to do lunch with Wakako and Everardo because i didn’t actually get to meet them when they booked me. They had loved my work and signed the contract all via email. That’s a great compliment when clients do that!), got our balloons and had pinkberry in between. Everardo’s Spanish came in handy when we were buying the balloons, the owner gave us an extra balloon for “just in case” and as we walked out, what happened? “Just in case” happened! Still, the day was a lot of fun.:)I did manage to get a fix it ticket for not having front plates!:)

There are so many great images from this shoot. I hope i don’t overwhelm anyone here! 😉

edited- i did take some off so that i don’t overwhelm anyone. check back again for more:)

This is one of my favorites, they look so carefree and happy go lucky…


Someone thought it was Wakako’s Birthday. They wished her a Happy Birthday. Some people are so cute!!


These two are super athletic. Can you tell they’re in GREAT shape??  they both live such active lifestyles from roller blading along the beach, kickboxing, and running…. what was it? 10 miles daily?? wakaever13wm

**to Wakako, thanks so much for being a great sport for taking pictures of all your outfits and being so patient…as i felt like a fashion stylist…

daily: tablescapes

Featured on Brooklyn Bride:


A while ago i shot some lovely tablescapes for the very talented Megan Fickling Pearson of La Partie Events.
Here are a few from the set. I love the color and pattern of the tablecloth! Megan is truly talented, i love her uniqueness, using potted plants, simple yet tasteful and bringing everything together that’s very pleasing to the eyes. I love her perspective when it comes to design. That sometimes less is best.


daily: new blog

I’ve never been good at self introductions or finding the right words at times so instead i’m going to start off my first post on my new blog with one of my favorite images of this year so far. Yes, it’s on my old blog but i really just adore this image. I don’t like to toot my own horn but i think this shot is amaaazing, it makes me smile and why not start off the blog with a smile? I know some folks will probably miss my pretty pink design and my logo..i do too in fact. But i felt it was time to move on from that and move forward in a slightly different direction with my business. The great thing is, the old blog is still up and running.:)


P.S. If you haven’t already done so, please remember to update your RSS feed!  You can still find my Old Blog HERE!
