Choosing your Jewelry


I should start this post of by saying that I am not a sparkly girl or a particularly glamorous one.  When it comes to choosing things for fashion or for my own wedding I picked simple and that was that.  So for me to tell you that my absolute new favorite thing to shoot on a wedding day is sparkly jewelry is completely out of character and I promise, no one is forcing me to write this post! Ha! For the styled bridal shoot with Mayson, I decided to order some sparkly earrings along with her sparkly gown.  I mean, it only made sense that if the gown sparkly then the jewelry had to be too, right?!

Well, here are the things I learned from playing with the earrings after that day.

1. Sparkly jewelry instantly classes up any outfit.

2. Sparkly jewelry photographs insanely well.

3.  I love shooting sparkly jewelry.

So I think you get the point, but I am definitely hoping that some of my 2014 brides will have some fun jewelry for me to shoot!  If you haven’t already purchased your wedding day jewelry, maybe you should take this tip into consideration!! Happy rainy Wednesday!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
