It’s difficult to imagine a scene dreamier than this one from Austin Gros, Chancey Charm Nashville, and FLWR Shop. Every detail was carefully attended to, from the bride’s beautiful updo to the moody stationery from The Paper Place and JLF Creative to the delicious cocktails. We’ll be spending the rest of the day obsessing over this one, tysm!

One of our tip top favorite holidays is coming up soon — Mother’s Day! We’ll be sending even more love mom’s way, and we love the idea of celebrating with a fun and stylish party as a way of saying thank you. This beautiful shoot from The Happy Bloom and French Knot Studios shows us how to do it, complete with a colorful painted backdrop, sweet floral accents, and an artistic tablescape.

The only thing better than a DIY garland is one that’s SUPER affordable, which is just one reason we love this beaded straw garland Studio Cultivate created for us. Made up primarily of cocktail straws, it’s a great way to make eye-catching, modern decor that can be whipped up in no time. Talk about a win-win!
I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.
As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.
As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.
