Aren’t weekends just the best?!?  Two whole days with nothing to do, but curl up on the sofa and soak in all of the pretty, pretty inspiration here on SMP California… I’m getting excited just thinking about it.  Even better, we have three brand new (plus absolutely fabulous) advertisers to introduce you to this morning… and that means even more wedding goodness to peruse!  And, trust me, there is nothing better than hours upon hours spent with the genius that is Ryan Ray Photography (you will NEVER stop swooning over his lovely images), the outrageously talented Makeup Dolls (the masters of flawless hair and makeup) and the ah.ma.zing husband and wife team of Modern 8 Films (whose work will literally leave you speechless).  Talk about an inspirational lineup.  So, grab that cup of morning coffee, find a cozy place and prepare to spend your day welcoming the newest members of our SMP family!  Happy Saturday!

From Ryan Ray PhotographyCreating classic images, through an honest approach, that reflect the love and joy couples share. Film is my medium to create images that are authentic and beautiful. My photographs are timeless and will forever remind you of the passion that brings you together.

From The Makeup DollsThe Makeup Dolls offer both airbrush makeup and licensed hair artistry in one talented team. We believe achieving a cohesive look is a beauty essential! By choosing to work with us, you have the benefit of a full service, brilliant makeup and hair artistry team!

The Makeup Dolls are a sister team specializing in airbrush makeup and hair artistry. While growing up we spent years fighting over Covergirl eye shadow and Aquanet hair spray, now we work together beautifying our clients, less the Aquanet! Between us there are two professional makeup artists, one licensed cosmetologist, one hair extension expert, two lovers of glossy lips, one mother of sweet baby Ellie and a love for all things beauty! With over more than fifteen years of experience working in fashion and bridal makeup and hair, including years as resident artists for top artistry lines,Violet and Indiana started The Makeup Dolls in 2007 and have been glossing lips and plumping lashes ever since.

From Modern 8 FilmsWedding films on super 8 and HD video.  We are Ted & Alanna, husband and wife.  We travel just about anywhere you are willing to take us, love life, cinema and think we pretty much have the coolest job ever.  We believe there are certain moment that cannot be staged or recreated and that these moments are the raw and beautiful parts of a wedding day that should be told.  We believe music is an integral part of a wedding film, however, just like great movies, the dialogue is what tells the story.  When touching dialogue is woven with the perfect song a truly timeless film is formed.  This is what we seek to provide every couple we have the privilege to work with.

Gorgeous, no?!?  And there is even more lovely to be seen on each of their websites!  So, make sure to stop on by each and every one and show them some SMP love!  Welcome to the family Ryan Ray Photography, The Makeup Dolls and Modern 8 Films!  We are so happy to have you! xoxo
