It’s supposed to rain here this weekend, so I’m planning to take advantage of the crummy weather and do some organizing. There’s always something so satisfying about getting rid of things and sorting the rest (I’m not alone in that, right?). Even with the rain, now that it’s June, I can’t stop thinking about summer trips. Especially road trips – I haven’t been on a good road trip in a few years (moving cross country so doesn’t count), and I’m really craving one. Are you going anywhere fun this summer? Do you have a favorite road trip?

Wedding photographers! Come hang out with me! Well, me and some amazingly talented wedding photographers. I’ll be teaming up with Jonas Peterson, Joel Flory, Sean Flanigan, and Nate Kaiser from The Image is Found for an awesome workshop in San Francisco, August 8-10.
In addition to live photo shoots and post processing techniques, the workshop will focus on:
- 1-on-1 brand and portfolio review
– building your business
– establishing your unique creative vision
– working with designers
– attracting the clients you want
You guys, I’m so excited about this workshop – it’s such a comprehensive look at all the aspects of wedding photography, that I know anyone who’s interested in honing their craft and developing their business will get so much out of it. With such awesome speakers and space limited to 40 people, I know it’s going to fill up fast, so hop to it! Register HERE!
The details: $1500 registration fee includes all the awesomeness mentioned above (two full days), plus dinner Monday and Tuesday, and breakfast and lunch Tuesday and Wednesday.
You are going to love Katie and Jeff’s vintage-inspired engagement photos – they just scream summer love, don’t they? Perfect for the first day of June! Katie is a professional swing dancer, the couple met at a swing club, and they have a love for all things vintage, so a vintage-inspired love shoot was so perfect for them. And, appropriately, the brothers Wright used their awesome multitude of vintage cameras to capture it all…
Doesn’t everything about this black and white photo look like it came straight out of the forties? I love it!
Say photographers Brian and Brandon Wright: The location for these photos is just down the road from Katie and Jeff’s new place in Pasadena, at Eaton Canyon. It was quite a challenge hiking to the falls, crossing the river over a dozen times, but it was well worth it. There were actually over 100 people watching us shoot, but somehow we managed to have a lot of fun with it and still pull it off. Pretty much everything you see is vintage 1930s, 40s and 50s, from Katie’s swimsuit to Jeff’s bow tie.
This classic July wedding was sent to us from the talented Leah McCormick – love these photos! Napa Valley was not only the place where Byron proposed to MacKenzie, but it also made for a fun destination for the groom’s family, and is close to the bride’s family in California. Says MacKenzie, “We loved celebrating with family and close friends!”
The aisle was decorated with hanging baskets of white hydrangeas. The young flower girl came down the aisle in a special “Wedding Flyer” wagon.
Centerpieces were garlands of magnolia leaves, white roses and green apples.
MacKenzie’s advice for brides is simple: Enjoy the day!
