This beautiful babe is about to have her THIRD boudoir shoot with me when we get to BALI!!! We are so freaking excited to be leaving for vacay today! Just a heads up that I'll be out of the country until the 29th and may be super slow to respond to emails because... well, I'll be in Bali with my girls. Make sure to follow my insta stories @carlysomeplace and @someplaceimages for lots of image sharing if you're not following already!
••• Trust the magic of new beginnings. ••• . . Funny how much power rings have! One small piece of jewelry sets two people off on an incredible journey together. One circle worn to make a lovely promise to another person. I particularly love the story of how we wear them on our ring finger because the Romans believed that the vein in that finger (“vena amoris”) on the left hand ran directly to one's heart. ♥️
••• Of all the things I can do on this earth I just want to build a bridge from my heart to yours. ••• . I loooove when the back of a wedding dress has a surprise, like this amaaaaazing beading on the deep V back of this @Miasolano dress. It’s such a fun twist on traditional gowns and adds a the perfect amount of flair ✨ .

Oh YEAH, baby!!! 💥💥💥 This is one of my absolute favorite shots from an outdoor session at my King’s Beach studio with the amazing @justbehappier. It is truly one of my faaaaavorote boudoir poses, and has the power to make anyone feel sexy and empowered. And she rocks those thigh high boots like a PRO! 😍
••• Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ••• . . Beauty is watching two generous and loving souls like @sdr0136 and @jarrodwaddell intertwine and create a beautiful and true life together. I just adore these two! And not only just because they let me get down and dirty during their engagement shoot with one of my favorite things: off roading!
Some days it's hard for me to shamelessly self-promote or speak about my accomplishments.... but this one I'm really, really proud of. I've been published in the Summer/Fall 2019 issue of @alaskabridemag and I can not WAIT to get my hands on a real copy and see MY photos of two phenomenal humans in a MAGAZINE. Is this real life? Of course, none of it would be possible without my gorgeous couple, Mr & Mrs. Delgado, and the most amazing florist Rachel Bug of @alaskaflowermill, who pretty much told me I had to submit it. . Other fabulous vendors of the day: Phenomenal Bride & Groom: @mrs.delgado.xvii & @del702 Wedding & Reception Venue: @alaskaluxuryadventures Second Star Florals: @alaskaflowermill Catering: @thetickledpear Cake: @blue.sunshine.bakery & @dren_creations Gown: @willowbywatters Veil: @madewithlovebridal Ribbons: @honeysilksco Invitations: @minted So yeah, I feel cool about this.
••• Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life. -Amy Poehler ••• . This is my official petition to make #SquadGoalsSaturday a thing. Have you ever seen a cuter bridal party?! I truly hope that the mismatched Bridesmaid dress trend sticks around, because I just love the dynamics it adds to wedding photos.
