Country Wedding Inspiration

Being a city girl, when I get a chance to take a trip to the country, it's a treat! Yesterday I took some time out and headed up to a ranch on the North Shore of Oahu. I was scouting for an upcoming photoshoot and possible event venue. Inspired by a big tree on the property, the wide open space and of course the horses and chickens, I found these photos that got my creative juices flowing.

Day After Shoot-Christian and Jenny

I can't wait to share the photos of this unbelievable cool "Day After" photoshoot of Christian and Jenny. Studio Red was there to capture the behind the scenes action as Hawaii's very talented photographer, Frank Amodo, took a risk to get the perfect shot.

Lanikuhonua-Christian and Jenny

Oh how I loved working with Christian and Jenny. They are beautiful people inside and out and their wedding was full of beauty, fun and lots of love. Studio Red did an amazing job with their SDE (Same Day Edit) that was shown at their wedding reception. Check it out!

Published-Military Spouse Magazine

Can you imagine baking and decorating cupcakes in your beautiful tea length dress, pearl necklace and delicate pumps? I can't either but somehow if you add an apron to the mix, it works. I had the privilege of coordinating, styling and propping for a photoshoot for the 50th issue of Military Spouse Magaziine. The theme was Cupcakes and Aprons and oh what fun we had. After a trip to Catherine's Closet to round up vintage dresses and aprons and scouring second hand stores and our own cupboards, we were able to come up with what I call a Martha Stewart inspired, vintage-meets-modern photoshoot. The fun thing about photoshoots is that a set can be created anywhere. In this case in my own house. Oh how I wish my kitchen could have remained that clean. Thank you to photographer, Athena Plichta for bringing me on board and to all of the wonderful women who took part in this photoshoot. The July issue of Military Spouse Magazine is in bookstores now.
