That’s me by the door! I’m blending in because all I wear is black 🖤 but I had to get a photo by this crazy incredible pub in London. ⠀ ⠀ So, I have been in this weird place in my life where—without trying to sound dramatic—I’m kind of re-figuring out who I am. What I stand for, what I like, what my beliefs are, what I care about. I’m attempting to deep dive into my personality, my habits, things that make me ME. It’s been an interesting journey and it’s still ongoing...really just beginning (does it really ever end? Actual question) but here are a few things I KNOW: ⠀ ⠀ 1. I value true connection and community with people and my surroundings. ⠀ ⠀ 2. I don’t want to do things just because other people are doing them and I don’t want to sleepwalk through life.⠀ ⠀ 3. Injustice drives me INSANE (hello, I’m an 8 on the enneagram) ⠀ ⠀ I could name a few others, but there are some good nuggets I’ve been thinking about.⠀ ⠀ So, What makes you really YOU? Do you actually like the things you do, or are you so focused on what other people think of you that you’re not sure anymore? What do you think?
Her new last name will be Love. 🥰 what a perfect last name! These two are getting married on Saturday and I can’t wait. Their engagement session in the Myriad Gardens was so beautiful...I’m so excited to return as they have their first look here on their wedding day. We might even return to this very spot. 🖤 I’m so thankful for couples who trust me fully. It’s so important to find vendors for your wedding day who you can completely trust to take care of you. Especially with your photography—your memories are too important!!
🎶 Eidelweiss...edelweiss...you look happy to me, to me... 🎶 Anyone know this song? 🙋🏻♀️ ⠀ ⠀ These shoes are part of @bellabelle’s new collection entitled—you guessed it—Edelweiss. And they’re so incredibly dreamy 😍 these shoes were perfect for the shoot I did in Vienna with @event.austria not only for the style but also the name’s significance. Edelweiss is the national flower of Austria and it is actually a protected plant!⠀ ⠀ Raise your hand if these shoes make you want to skip all the way to the Vontrap family home and let the Captain sing to you? (Salzburg is pretty too) 😍🙋🏻♀️⠀ photography : @hayleywaldophoto styling & florals : @event.austria hair/makeup : @chrissiakbaba_mua jewelry : @rosamarlenewien stationary : @ohhoneypaperco dress : @jennyyoonyc videography : @michael_sozonov

It’s no secret that I love black 🖤🖤🖤 and I love how blackberries were used in this summer table setting! Also a touch of black scabiosa flowers incorporated in this centerpiece is familiar to me... I used a LOT of this flower in my own wedding! ⠀ ⠀ What is your ideal color palette? All white? Blush pinks? Mostly greenery?⠀ ⠀ photography @hayleywaldophoto⠀ @samanthakindred ⠀@kindrednorth host @erinwilsonphoto ⠀ dress @chantillycouturebridal ⠀ calligraphy @paper_supply_co ⠀ florals @vaseandvine ⠀ dresses @bellabridesmaids ⠀ tux @mr.tux_ar ⠀ cake @earthandhoneycakes ⠀ film lab @thefindlab
✨This is my Dream! ✨I have dreamed of creating magic in Vienna, of capturing the beauty of this city I love so much. And although it rained and plans changed and we were kept on our toes the entire time, it was incredible to finally create here. ⠀ ⠀ It’s VERY possible to have beautiful photos on an overcast or rainy day! Trust me when I say, it’s so important to have a photographer that knows what to do in case of rain ☔️ I will be sharing so much more from this dreamy rainy shoot in Vienna soon! 🖤✨⠀ ⠀ So incredibly thankful for this team:⠀ photography : @hayleywaldophoto⠀ styling & florals : @event.austria⠀ hair/makeup : @chrissiakbaba_mua⠀ jewelry : @rosamarlenewien⠀ stationary : @ohhoneypaperco⠀ dress : @jennyyoonyc shoes : @bellabelleshoes film lab : @thefindlab videography : @michael_sozonov⠀ models : @bibibaltovic @janpalko
