If you haven't yet seen the work of Brook Schwab...you really need to. Her photographs are incredibly vibrant and stylish, without seeming staged in any way.. .
I devoured Brook's site last night and found so many of her pictures over-the-top inspiring. Even if you aren't in Houston, you can still look to these pictures for ideas on colors, styles, fashions, anything really. It is always good to look for inspiration in photographer's sites as you can see what palettes really pop. Check out Brook's blog for even more eye candy.
And, speaking of brilliant photography. Check out this great new site, Photographik...an all in one, photographer's network. Basically, it's a site that represents wedding photographers throughout the US, and is an easy way for brides to search for a photographer by city. However, unlike The Knot or Wedding Channel, they limit the number of photographers per city and pre-screen everyone and evaluate the quality of your work before they will accept you. This great site was emailed to me by one of our readers, a photographer AND bride-to-be, Justine Ungaro (who has gorgeous work on her site).
