when i got the opportunity to finally work with one of my favorite nyc photographers (and dear friend) trent bailey, i jumped on the opportunity to collaborate! and then, we i met for coffee and breakfast with one of the cutest-couples-in-all-the-land, RG and Lisa, well i knew we'd have one heck of a day shooting their engagement. we decided on a bohemian urban campsite on a rooftop in brooklyn and one of my all-time favorite wedding blogs, 100 Layer Cake, is featuring the results today. go check it out!
trent is a seriously amazing photographer and a really lovely person, so if you have any photographic needs, he should be at the top of your list. i can't recommend him enough!

cupcakes & cashmere? no, really, where have i been?! there were lots of important things i was supposed to accomplish this evening. instead i made a list of how i can slowly turn myself into a replica of the blog's editor, emily. on the list? neon nails, orange scented scones, long sleeved lace top, poms in the office and some wicked beach hair. hot damn, the girl's adorable! check out her blog for recipes, seriously rad outfits, how-tos and one adorable cali house.. and also for a dose of real life-envy.

i was just tickled to be part of a creative team featured on ruffled yesterday with a shoot we produced just as spring started edging its way into existence in march. i got pulled in to style the shoot a mere 36 hours before the big day, so i immediately went about setting up an inspiration board based on their original vision. here's how it turned out:
we wanted something with teals and golds and warm, muted tones. i loved the natural vision with pops of ethereal goodness. to keep things on budget, i focused my energy on including ribbons in the color palette to highlight but not cover up the amazing venue, alder manor. naturally delicious brought in amazing, rustic food, the white gown provided stunning dresses (oh, that tulle, that tulle!) and the amazing lauren over at lo & co made our sweet models downright gorgeous. here are some peeks..

I've been itching to share this stylized shoot I designed as part of a collaboration with Wren & Field Photography. Remember this inspiration board? I was noticing lots of sweet and delicate Valentine's inspired inspiration in blogland so I was hoping to provide some edgier, glitzier ideas.
We started with the rustic locale of One Shot Cafe in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. We countered the cafe's wood walls and natural aesthetic with lots of high-shine gold and bright, vibrant pinks. I found those vintage gold mugs the day before the shoot and was instantly smitten...
Anne & Kate designed all the paper goods, including those adorable custom valentines. They were perforated on the edge so you could send your high-school-style response back in style in a teensy tinsy envelope.Anne & Kate. Of course, they didn't last too long after we wrapped for the day...
Of course, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to customize a little photobooth for our adorable models! Made out of tissue paper and fabric scraps, it was the perfect way to highlight some more adorable outfits. It goes without saying that this will most certainly play a major role in my next party.
I was so happy to work with amazing talent on this shoot: Emily and Cassidy of Wren & Field Photography, Jennie of Love 'n Fresh Flowers, Anne & Kate's paper goods were spot on, and Josie DiCarlo and Jessica Pineda had our models George and Blair looking spectacular!
We were honored to be featured on Ruffled yesterday as part of their Valentine's Day extravaganza, so to check out more photos, swing by there or drop me a line! Now, go kiss somebody.

i went online to seek the perfect photo to represent how terrible i feel. i thought for sure there'd be a picture of a dude with a fishbowl over his head, so i typed that in. this is what i got:
