I loved photographing Emma! When we talked about the session and the style she wanted to have. She said she had a few landmarks that were so American to her she just had to have a photo with them in it. One was Bethel, one was the Highway 44 and I-5 signs and the other was a school bus. However all of the busses were gone from their usual parking spot so we had to forgo the bus shot. But we did get some photos with Emmas bright yellow surf board. She is a fearless surfer! Also we had the always fun www.thebusbooth join us for a few shots with the surf board to bring in that vintage surfer girl look. Enjoy!
Back to school is here! Now is the time to start planning your Fall Family Photo Shoot. I have a sweet mini- session deal going on right now. Send me a note to book your date.
A little story about this lovely Kohl Mansion Event. Dan originally from Chicago and Amber from Northern California, met in Dallas. They both worked for the same commercial real estate company. They were friends at first but their magnetic attraction for each other made it obvious they would spend the rest of their lives together. I asked Amber to tell us how Dan proposed and I just loved how she shares the story. ” I rescued a pit bull from Portland, OR and have had her for the last 13 years. She rode cross country with me in the passenger side of my car when I moved to Dallas. He put the ring box around her neck and she came slowly walking down the stairs as I was playing the piano. She literally came and sat down right next to the piano bench and looked at me with her big pit bull smile. Dan came around the corner and said ‘are you going to open it’. I cried that he included Sassy in the proposal and he was sure to get a yes with that approach.The Blackhawks were in Dallas on a 22-0 winning streak and he is a huge fan, so he chose that night to propose so we could celebrate at the game, which they won! I think it was a good omen for the marriage.” I just love how creative proposals can be. Dan & Amber chose a destination wedding and California was a great place for an intimate wedding where everyone could meet for a celebration weekend. After looking at many venues, Kohl Mansion was the obvious choice. Every photo was so beautiful and timeless. Amber didn’t use a coordinator but instead pulled from her own amazing coordinating skills. She chose a dress that had clean lines but was grand enough for the venue. Kohl Mansion has a pale green and white ceremony room so Amber chose peach & white flowers to compliment the room. For the reception she chose low centerpieces to make conversation easier and grey table linens with damask runners to contrast the warm wood tones in the reception area. Wow! Amber you brought it all together so beautifully!
