Attempting to pull off a wedding theme as beautiful and historic as Dia de los Muertos may seem like a major risk to say the least, but the team at Petite Pomme Design just proved to us that not only is incorporating this holiday (or Halloween or any other holiday for that matter) totally attainable, but modernized and relatable as well. Pictures from Linda Tran Photography + just how they did it in the post!Read More
Hump day is always a little more manageable when you’re inspired, don’t you think? Especially by those as passionate about weddings as we are, like our A-list member Yes, Dear. Studio. Husband + wife team Phillip and Aubrey are based out of Southern California but travel all over the world to capture weddings that are adventurous, creative, and intimate. You’ll be extra excited to see the major giveaway they’re offering below, if you so happen to be planning such a celebration yourself (hint hint)…
P + A studied photography and design together in college, and after their own wedding, they fell in love with taking photos together. They loved the relationships that were formed and the openness and intimacy that comes with creative weddings. Having it all culminate in incredible photos is a plus, too.
Yes, Dear. Studio loves, loves all weddings, but small, intimate celebrations + elopements is their sweet spot. They get to capture all those intimate moments that come with smaller events.
Here’s what they have to say: There’s something really special about going on an adventure somewhere new with our couples or exploring a familiar place that they love. This makes the images so much more dynamic and allows us to narrate their story through the camera.
Yes, Dear. Studio Giveaway:
In honor of their four year anniversary, Phillip + Aubrey are giving away an elopement photography package! The requirements: 1) be madly in love with another human, 2) be planning an elopement with ten or fewer guests, and 3) cover their travel costs if the elopement is outside of Southern California.
The prize: 8 hours of coverage in both film + digital, and even help planning the day. You’ll receive an online gallery of images to share with friends + fam and a flash drive with the edited images + film scans.
(For those entering with travel outside of SoCal, feel free to ask for a quote with your entry.)
How to enter:
Send an email to Aubrey@yesdear-studio.com and tell us about yourselves! The more info, the better! Send us a couple photos and tell us all about your vision for this day. We want to know where you want to elope and why an elopement is perfect for the two of you. If you already have a date set please include it. Submissions must be made no later than November 25th.
And if you’re not planning? Feel free to send this blog post along to someone who is!
The fact that we’re starting off with the wedding cake should hint at just how gorgy this California forest editorial by Jessie Schultz Photography truly is. With a vintage merlot-hued settee as a catalyst, Jessie’s mind was running wild: maroon tones, a vintage lace dress, rustic accents… The ideas were endless. She says, It seemed a bit farfetched given where we live, but wherever you are, there are always little pockets and hidden gems not far from away where you can fulfill little daydreams.Read More
This month seems to be full of launches and exciting announcements, does it not? We shared BHLDN’s latest collection, Romantique by Claire Pettibone, AND Show Me Your Mumu’s bridesmaids to name a few fall debuts. Now we’re onto a little somethin’ for basically everyone in the wedding party. You’ve heard of Simone LeBlanc specialty gift boxes, yes? They have the loveliest curated gift boxes for lots of occasions, and their recent collab with our friends at Bash Please is right up our alley. Check out their bride box below…Read More
When both your mother + father have lakeside cabins next door to each other like George’s, the space becomes an obvious contender for a venue. Even better if its style totally aligns with your love of vintage, history, and family. Again, like George’s. Naida knew it was serious when he first brought her up to the island on a date, and naturally it became her favorite place too. Don’t you love perfect fits like that? Really can’t imagine anyone better behind the lens than Suzuran Photography too.Read More
A bit about A + J: Based in LA, Amy is an actress and Pilates instructor + Jamie owns Portola Paints and is a musician. They’re busy people, clearly, but that didn’t stop them from handcrafting their big day at Jamie’s parents’ so they could tie the knot with a guest list of 155 and a style that blended their bohemian, midcentury aesthetic with the home’s tropical flair. Think casual, playful, colorful, and completely personalized—right down to the front yard that they closed off with 120′ of live olive hedges to transform the space (which you’ll see in Birds of a Feather‘s images).
