@larakreutner and I were chatting about these photos today and about how absolutely stunning you are @victoriavangeison 😍😍😍. So much fun bringing this shoot and concept to life for the #elevateworkshop . Still getting my kids adjusted to a new school year (any other mamas feel me?!) and then this is heading straight for the blog 💕. | planning and concept @larakreutner floral @carteblanchedesign makeup @thelillierose hair @kensingtonmakeup dress @marieebridalscottsdale film lab @thefindlab venue @sanctuaryweddings
The bougainvillea that grows here in the desert is one of my very favorite things ✨. I saw this patch at the lovely @royalpalmsweddings and knew I wanted to use it to frame sweet Stephanie’s beautiful dress as I thought it would be the perfect touch 👌🏻💕.
Lush blooms and that “just before a kiss” moment of connection. Love this shot so much 💕. | @outstandingoccasions @elchorroweddings @carteblanchedesign @thefindlab #thefindlab
Sweet Dan & Ashley in the Windy City 💕. I photographed their wedding 2 years ago here in the desert, and it was so awesome to reconnect on their home turf! Had a lot of fun challenging myself on this session by using all digital and testing @noblepresets. Thanks to @itsshanshan for assisting on this shoot and showing me around the beautiful city of Chicago ❤️. Such a blast to shoot here, so awesome to reconnect with Dan and Ashley, and fun to try new things 💕.
I’ve had the opportunity to travel a handful of times this year, and I have such great memories of every place I’ve visited (the people I’ve met and reconnected with definitely being the very best part!). But there’s one thing I’ve learned in it: there’s absolutely no place like home. I’ve heard people throw that phrase around, but now I understand it. As beautiful or as exciting a place can be, there’s absolutely nothing that replaces being home with family and friends who truly know and love you. It’s irreplaceable. I’ve always “known” this, but now I *really* do. I have so many more thoughts on this and the reflections I’ve been having lately, and I look forward to sharing more of my process. But for now, what about you? What are your thoughts on travel? I’d love to hear your own experiences/perspectives! ❤️ | Image edited with @noblepresets
