from the deserts of las vegas to rural louisiana, we had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing models, stylists and designers this year. we shot some editorial work for south moon under, HJ planners and dryden dress company as well as 2 album covers for the talented sarah bernstein. because fashion photography definitely inspires our wedding work, any time we have a chance to shoot editorially we love it and are looking so forward to 2013 as we already have some exciting plans in the works!

so several weeks ago, liv sent me a text which I am guessing she knew the answer to before she hit send:  “would you like to do an editorial session for my friend sarah’s new album?” ummmm… YES! I always love working with new people for different purposes and although I’ve worked with musicians before, this was our first cover shoot. needless to say – I was a bit stoked. fast forward to the session and my excitement was only reinforced when I met sarah. she is so nice and was open to all of our suggestions – and even with the near-freezing temperatures, she was awesome! the clothes, makeup and just her general approach to the session made our job easy as we brought her from location. she has sent me the mockup for the CD art and I hope to have my hands on the real thing soon – in the meantime, her album ‘eleven’ is available on itunes and at her website and you guys should go check it out! I have a feeling that this won’t be the last of working together as I’m sure this talented girl will be singing for years to come!

we had so much fun on this shoot – it was amazing to work with you and we can’t wait to do it again soon!

I know I should – but I’ve never been one to submit my weddings to many blogs or magazines. I’d like to say it’s due to lack of time but really (and secretly… until now) it’s fear of rejection. we pour our hearts and souls into our weddings and sessions so I think if I heard “nice try, but I don’t think so” I would just about die. and we really don’t shoot for anyone but us and our clients. if our couples have some killer details – yes I’m going to shoot them but I won’t fill their blogpost with image after image of centerpieces and table cards – I’d rather showcase my couple and what makes them special. having said all that – when someone approaches me and is interested in showcasing our work – well I am as giddy as a school girl. such is the case when I got an email from nole, co-creator of united with love blog. this blog is new, fresh and amazing. and what I really love about it is that it features not only details and DIYs but e-sessions, traditional weddings, contemporary weddings, alternative ceremonies - everything wild and wonderful about our business in the mid-atlantic area. she contacted me specifically about christine & bill’s wedding from late october and it was posted on their site yesterday. I just have to say thank you thank you thank you! thank you for recognizing how amazing christine and bill are as well as all of their amazing vendors who made their day spectacular. and now that I know “you like me, you really like me!” I may just have to start submitting more!
