TBT Continues

If you’re thinking that it’s probably 1am on a Tuesday morning and I’m just catching up on all my missed blogs, you’d be partially wrong.  It’s 12:53am.  TYVM.

I’m not proud.  But I’m trying.  So we’ve got that going for us.

Here below you’ll find some pretty awesome pictures AGAIN by the amazing Amanda Pomilla Photography Not just because I still have her link copy and pasted to my clip board from the last post.  BUT also because she actually sends me images.  I almost NEVER remember to ask photographers for pictures from past weddings.  So it’s a lovely treat when one of them actually does.  Independently!

Jen literally booked me on the fly.  I believe it was seriously just a few days before her wedding.  We don’t typically have availability this late in the game but it was on a Sunday and in the summer.  So win win for the both of us!

There was absolutely nothing that I didn’t love about Jen and her wedding.  Her bridesmaids were hilarious.  The all chose great hairstyles and makeup looks.  Her style and color pallet was everything I ever dreamt of.  I genuinely contemplated stealing her dress.  It hung about 10ft away from me.  (I require at least a radius of at least 12 feet from all things white wedding dress as I am accident prone). Clearly it wanted me to wear it.  But I wasn’t 100 % sure if that was going to cross the line.  I’me not great with lines.  cosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0109_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0106_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0089_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0088_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0083_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0081_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0080_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0079_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0078_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0069_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0065_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0062_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0061_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0060_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0059_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0057_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0051_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0050_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0049_lowcosman_hall_amandapomillaphotography_lbjwildflowercenterjenandsimon0048_low

Throw Back Thursday

I’m going to start implementing TBT’s here on the blog.  Mostly because it’s the only way to casually play off the fact that I’m am THAT far behind.

I loved everything about this wedding.  Starting with the gorgeous/sweet/kind bride.  Casey wore a long sleeved dress which was absolutely stunning on her.  Want to know something else thats stunning?  These photos from Amanda Pomilla Photography. Not only is she an incredible photographer but I get to call her friend.  Which may lead you to believe that I’m a little bias but.  Let these babies be the judge!

Soo…it’s been a while

I’m not even going to waste our time with excuses.  I have neglected my website like a cat hoarder who gets too overwhelmed and forgets to feed all 2o4983094 of her cats.  I apologize.  You’re way more important to me than my hoarder cats.  Unless you’re a cat person- in which case you’re equally as important to me!

I’m going to cut to the chase and share some pretty awesome pictures with you.  If you’ve been around any given amount of time you’ll know I have a strong strong love for Loft Photography .  So it’ll also come as so surprise to you that the following pictures are phenomenal.  Not to mention my bride Ashley is gorgeous.  Inside and out.

Thats a lotta stuff

I was contacted by the adorable.. and I mean ADORABLE girls at Loft Phtographie  to help them with a styled shoot requested by the amazing designer of Bride La Boheme who is based out of Australia.  I am a girl who has a weakness for styled shoots, so of course I was happy to oblige!

I was warned told that there would be quite a bit of accessories and a small window of time.  The number went from 30 something I think and ended up being over 50!  Man, do I love a challenge!

The designer wanted organic, boho, romantic updos, which I think is my spirit animal.  If there was an organic boho animal.  Maybe like a boho horse or a goat?  Totally googling that.

These are one of the first images that pulled up when I googled “Boho horse” and “Boho goat”.  You know what?  I’m gonna say horse.  Horse is definitely my boho spirit animal.

As per usual I digress.

I arrived at the house where I would be getting the two models ready and styled them similar to pictures that were requested.  Then, after picking my jaw off the floor from seeing all the gorgeous accessories and dresses, we hoped on over to this cool spot by the river.   It was a looong day.  The entire time was spent snapping (on film none the less!) pictures of one model while I changed out the other one, and then they were done with her, I’d go swap out accessories from the other model! Some of the accessories were switched from hair piece to belt, to bracelet.  It was awesome the creativity you can use for these gorgeous pieces.  (I need to trademark myself and one of the looks will just have to be gorgeous hair pieces worn with my normal casual t-shirt and jeans. ) It was CRAZY and SOOO much fun!  So take a moment.. Enjoy the pictures below.  I know there are a ton, but this is just a small fraction of how many there actually are!

*The pictures are out of order, but we started with updos and then at the end of the day took them down.

Katy

Where do I begin with sweet and soo soo pretty Katy?

Let’s begin by mentioning that one of my favorite people and photographers shot this wedding.  Magan with Urban Grey   referred me to Katy a while back.  She always sends me the sweetest of clients so of course I was excited to work with her.  It’s one of those thing where you’re really hoping the trial goes well.  You don’t want your friend to look bad for referring someone who does bad work, and you don’t want someone to think you do bad work!  Stressful all around.

You know what’s not stressful?  Katy.  Katy is a doll.  So stress free, so sweet, and easy going.  I had a lot of fun working with her and her bridesmaids on her wedding day.  I will say though.  That not everything was a peaches and roses.  Peaches and roses.  Is that even right?  Well anyway.  Not everything was dandy.  ( I have this uncontrollable need to use non-boring adjectives.  So I can’t just say, everything was not awesome.. dang it.  SEE?!, awesome would have been perfect.  )  Katy struggles with perfect skin syndrome.  Like  She doesn’t have pores.  Or wrinkles.  Or blemishes.  Her skin is perfect.  Ugh, and her hair.  Shiny.  Who has perfect hair and skin?!  Katy.  That’s who.

For Katy we did her hair in a romantic and timeless updo, airbrush makeup with natural looking lashes.  Her bridesmaids also chose classic updos as well.

On with the show.
