Connect with us on social media!

Sharing images as a wedding photographer used to be incredibly easy.  You had your website, maybe a Facebook page, probably a blog.  All new content immediately got a blog post…and that was pretty much it!  Now there are so many ways to share images, be social, and connect with clients and friends.

To see daily updates of our current weddings and images, follow us on Instagram.  I adore Instagram, and only post wedding and portrait-related images on our business account.  Since we don’t currently really use Snapchat (I’m susanstripling there, but rarely post), Instagram is the best way to get an overview of our current work!

Epson Finish Strong

I have been patiently waiting for this Epson Finish Strong ad to be published so that I could share.  I just saw it in both the PPA magazine and Shutterbug so…

I am so deeply, incredibly, humbly honored to have been featured in an ad for Epson. That’s me, on the left, clinging precariously with my best yoga strength, to a bridge in Venice, California. Below are our charming models, trying to not float too far afield. Above me is the powerhouse talent of Joe McNally, taking the aerial shot. All around us are the incredible people from Joe’s team, Epson America, and M&C Saatchi.

I remember seeing these Epson Finish Strong ads before, but never knew the behind-the-scenes work that went into creating the finished product.

Thank you, Epson, for the opportunity. I am more grateful than you will ever know.

Carol Hannah : The 2014 LookBook

In 2009 I stumbled across a show called Project Runway. It was the sixth season of the show and I was immediately hooked. Every week I faithfully came back to watch, whether they were reconstructing wedding gowns or creating new stage outfits for Christina Aguilera. It was fascinating to watch the designers grapple with each challenge and my favorite quickly emerged as a young self-taught designer from South Carolina named Carol Hannah Whitfield. Her work was fresh, charming, and deceptively intricate. I remember thinking “That woman should design wedding dresses.”

In 2010 Ms. Whitfield began doing precisely that, creating luminously beautiful wedding gowns from her studio in New York

I worked to capture not just the dresses but the behind-the-scenes action. Carol Hannah and her team worked diligently on every setup to perfect the final look.

Not a single detail was left to chance.
Le Soleil Carol Hannah
The shoulder of the Le Soleil dress was just stunning, as was the swooping back of the Le Lumiere gown.

Carol Hannah’s dresses are works of art and the fabrics she chooses are so delicate and luscious. I love how the skirts of these two gowns moved.
