We recently received an inquiry from a bride who was offered by another photographer an impossibly low price and nothing but digital product. Jenni told her about our studio, our top-quality products, our 5-star level of service, our excellent reputation and name in the region, our experience, and about enthused reviews from our awesome couples. The bride contacted […]

CHOOSING A PHOTOGRAPHER My parents were abroad vacationing when I began the wedding planning process. I was reluctant to book a photographer without consulting with my mom. But, I knew I wanted to lock in a great photographer; after all the dust settles, you have only memories and photographs to keep.  Ulysses and Jenni were the […]

CHOOSING WEDDING VENDORS My wedding planner, Rashi Shyam of Event Nirvana, was our fearless leader. Planning an entirely outdoor, at-home wedding is a tall order with logistical challenges at every step. She took on each challenge with calm and logic. The last minute changes, additions and rearrangements due to unforeseen weather barely phased her. A […]

HAIR/MAKEUP I wanted to look like myself on my wedding day. Since I normally wear my hair down I thought long soft waves would look great. Make stylist, Pauline of Flawless Beauty by Pauline, agreed. But, plans don’t always work out. My wedding day was hot and humid and loose hair was out of the […]

THE LENGHA After endless hours (and miles!) of searching for high-end and well-established designers for my bridal lengha, I chose a fairly new luxury designer, Saa.n.she.  I couldn’t have been happier! Though bridal consultants told me the latest style was to choose varied colors such as hot pink and neon yellow for bridal wear, I knew […]

We first met Kinjal over 5 years ago, at an amazing wedding in which she was a bridesmaid. When she contacted us about her own wedding, we were over-the-moon excited! Although Kinjal’s wedding day has now passed, she wrote some beautiful words to convey and remember her feelings surrounding this special day. We’re going to publish them in […]

Thousands of brides each year dream of finding the perfect white gown, while many others have a vision of walking down the aisle in vivid color. Perhaps seeing celebrities like Reese Witherspoon in her pale blush Monique Lhuillier dress, Anne Hathaway in her vintage Valentino gown with its fringes splashed with pink, or Cynthia Bailey […]

What’s the most important thing to you when choosing a photographer? Is it their price? Is it their having the latest and greatest cameras available? Or maybe it’s the sheer volume of photographs received on a disc regardless? We’re glad to say these aren’t the points of focus with our clients; instead, it’s the high quality […]

Working with people who love providing quality results and quality service just as much as we do is always invigorating and even inspiring. While photographing Rebekah + Harry’s wedding we had a chance to see just a sample of the beautifully handmade invitations by Kristy Rice, artist and owner of the fabulous design studio, Momental […]

When it comes to photography, I love the process of working with a couple, a bride, a family, or a baby to get that “perfect shot”, a frozen moment that tells me something about who my subject is. It’s almost as if they’re sharing a tiny little secret with me alone as I look through […]

Ulysses and I had the privilege of being guests at the wedding of two good friends last weekend – what fun!  Since another of my friends, Jasmine, doesn’t normally wear much makeup, she came over beforehand so that we could do our makeup together.  She knows I’m crazy for M.A.C. Cosmetics, which were formulated specifically […]

I remember years ago shopping in a mens clothing store. A gray-haired gentleman was helping his son buy his first suit. I overheard the young man say to his dad, “What about this one? It’s pretty inexpensive.” The dad looked at the price tag, and then he put his hand on his son’s shoulder and […]
