Happy Pup Poopy Friday Roundups

I’ve had that terrifying moment or two where I’ve looked down at my bare ring finger and panicked… but I’ve never had it show up in my pup’s poop. I can’t decide whether this lady is lucky or unfortunate. I guess she’ll think twice before taking it off again… pregnant & swollen or not!

It’s been a good week for ladies reunited with their wedding rings. I’m glad that this Boston Marathon runner was reunited with her lost wedding ring, too. :)

This impeccably elegant and stylish country club wedding comes to us from Nora of Bridal Bliss based in Portland, OR! Here’s Nora to tell us more:

Planning a wedding with a client that gives you creative freedom is such a fun and exciting experience.  Christina & Chad wanted a wedding that was unique, special for their guests, beautiful and a real party.  The event certainly didn’t disappoint! My favorite focal piece was the stunning floral tree. The talented florist spent hours constructing and perfecting the gorgeous ceremony backdrop and guests couldn’t stop gushing.

An Elegant and Heartfelt Midwest Wedding (20)

An Elegant and Heartfelt Wedding in Ravinia ,IL (22)

This lovely Midwest wedding comes to us from Rebecca Marie Photography & Design, based in Chicago, Illinois! Here’s Rebecca to tell us more:

The thing about intensely sweet & genuine people is they attract more sweet & genuine people. Yes, those adjectives describe Lindsay & Ryan (or at least skim the surface), but they also describe the family & friends that surrounded them on their wedding day. From a sister-in-law who decorated Lindsay’s parents home before she woke up to a friend who re-created a moment from their childhood, the chilly drizzle Mother Nature threatened with didn’t stand a chance to stop the warmth & excitement exuding from everyone.

Featured Wedding Invitation Design: Black and White Striped Gift Box Invitation by Tangé Design (5)

Featured Wedding Invitation Design: Black and White Striped Gift Box Invitation by Tangé Design (4)

This dramatic and elegant wedding invitation comes to us from Eng of Tangé Design based in Costa Mesa, CA! Here’s Eng to tell us more:

With an upcoming wedding in New Jersey, the bride-to-be Melissa came to us with the idea of having a box style wedding invitation that resembled a gift. To convey her color theme of black and white, we chose a bold vertical stripe design. When guests open the fluffy silk peony topped box, they unfold a dramatic long accordion fold invitation, with type set in modern sans serif type and romantic script. Details of shimmer ivory paper, couple’s nameplate highlighted with a tiny rhinestone, and delicate dotted thick black ribbon tie the invitation together into a really elegant and lovely package.

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer in Madison, GA: Brandy Angel Photography (4)

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer in Madison, GA: Brandy Angel Photography (7)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Brandy of Brandy Angel Photography based in Madison, GA! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company?

I have always loved photography. I mean LOVED it. When I was 10 years old, I would dress up my nieces and nephews (who were closer in age to me than my siblings), throw up a backdrop and take pictures. There was nothing more fun than playing photographer. I can fondly recall every camera I have ever received and can sit and look over photographs for hours on end. My dream was to grow up and be a national geographic photographer.

I ended up being a surgical technologist for 10 years and loved every minute of it. Helping people in their time of need was a wonderful thing for me. However, when I had my daughters I stayed home and rekindled my deep love for photography. I bought my first digital camera and with my friends, taught myself how to use it. From that, Brandy Angel Photography has evolved. Not only have I been able to capture incredible moments for brides and grooms but also continue to help people in their time of need with my own non profit origination, Be the Change, Brandy Angel Foundation. I could not be more blessed and happier with where I am today.

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer in Toronto, ON: Kelvin Young Photography (10)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Kelvin of Kelvin Young Photography based in Toronto, ON! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

Hello, my name is Kelvin Young. I started Kelvin Young Photography Inc 8.5 years ago back in 2006 when I was 17 years old. I was one year away from graduating high school and fell in love with photography! I started photographing small events and shows, and then began accepting some paid work. Most wedding photographers stick with wedding and event photography, but throughout the years, I’ve had the privilege and opportunity to branch out into all sorts of photography including food, performance/show, commercial, corporate, architecture and documentary photography. That keeps me happily busy throughout the year, even when wedding season comes to almost a complete stop during the winter months of December to April in Toronto.

Five lovely bridesmaids— totally manageable.

… but Two HUNDRED plus?!! You must be trying to break a world record. Well, that’s exactly what this couple is trying to do when they tie the knot this weekend in Tampa Bay, FL! Crazy? Maybe.

That’s over double the size of most weddings, not to mention that I had only a handful of girlfriends that I felt comfortable having by my side as I married my hubby dearest just over a year ago!

What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments below after you’re all done catching up with this week’s blog happenings. :)

Beach Neutrals Styled Shoot (9)

Beach Neutrals Styled Shoot (9)

This lovely, tranquil styled shoot comes to us from Anne Victoria Photography based in Duluth, Minnesota!

I got the idea for this session when editing a photo from the beach. I love the inherent contrast between the cool water tones and the warm colors on the sand and sun. Especially this time of year, the beautiful beach in the fall. There is something wonderful about that. I wanted to play with the cool/warm contrast of the setting and get the wardrobe involved in the contrast with tans and grays, golds and silvers. I had some awesome vendors in on this session as well as two amazing models.
