Extra special touches, like a surprise vow renewal for the grooms parents? That's the stuff that gets you right in the feels. // I'm hopping on a plane today, and am excited to spend some time with this wedding before jumping back in to the game tomorrow.
when photographers have a little free time, this is what happens 💐🌲 I generally rely on being close to my subjects to show emotion and intimacy, so it was nice to try out more of an environmental style of portraiture yesterday!
Happy Friday everyone!!! Here's some beautiful inspiration for a vow renewal or elopement. I love how the florals encircle the couple and make a wide open place feel close and intimate. Featured yesterday on @adornmagazine.
Now off to make the most of a gorgeous summer day!!! And thanks to this pic, I think I'll go find some sand (or semi pebbly beach in our case ☺️). Photographers: @katrinathaxton & @balerosphotography⠀

Copper Ink on blush for an ethereal hidden desert elopement. Featured on @adornmagazine today! I'm not the most patient person so I'm thrilled to finally be able to share these gorgeous photos captured by @katrinathaxton. Check out the temp link in my bio for a very unique view of Washington beauty and the creative wonders of a fantastic team.
A set of truly beautiful rings made by @antlerrings. Chelsea + Matt are lovers of the outdoors and Matt is also a fisherman and a hunter so these rings really suit them well. Inlay made with deer antler.
I'm all about this kind of edible calligraphy and it's looking particularly tempting today. Yesterday we learned of a potential deal breaker for the land we're in the process of purchasing. There have been a number of feasibility challenges so far but we've been able to navigate them. This one though...well, today will be a determining day. So, do I feel like stress-eating a plate of macarons? Yes, yes "I DO." ☺️

How I feel after taking care of business tonight 🤘🏼 Contracts, emails, Rising Tides community meeting, more contracts and emails, unpacking new shipments, more emails. That's been my Tuesday evening. How have you taken care of business, or instead taken care of yourself tonight!? PS - lest you think I've got it all together, I just tried to take a big sip of water, didn't get it near my face, and poured it all over myself and my laptop instead and now need to go change. So, there's that. 💦😅
I don't think it's any secret that I adore scribing vows for others. More than just a love of calligraphy, it's motivated by a desire to encourage couples in their marriage with a visible reminder of the depth of their love. With this in mind, I was absolutely honored to provide some calligraphy for the beautiful new product launch by @theartofetiquette who has created a beautiful line of vow keepsake books. These books are a lovely way to display your special vows to one another! Oh, and vow keepsakes aren't just for newlyweds.... ;)
