SMP California Welcomes Our Advertisers!

This, loves, is exactly how we like to spend our weekends: with an entire portfolio of pretty courtesy of the seriously talented Sergey Green.  Think one breathtaking image after another filled with the sweetest moments you will ever lay your eyes upon and you are sooo on the right track.  It’s SoCal beauty meets a photog that knows a thing or two about capturing every amazing moment… and we can’t get enough.

From Sergey GreenThere is nothing that can keep me away from shooting photos. It’s in my nature. I have been a wedding photographer for over eight years now and have worked on over 350 weddings. It’s not easy to keep the passion going for many people, but with every year I love doing what I do more and more.

Every single event or shoot I do carries the unique style and unique people involved in it. That’s why I like photographing in a photojournalistic style and capturing true people and true emotions in the most beautiful way possible. When you hire someone to capture the best day of your life, it really has to be that feeling: “He’s the perfect photographer for our wedding!”

Welcome to the family, Sergey!  We are so happy to have you! xo

Whimsical Garden-Inspired Bridal Shower

You might have a hard time believing me when I say this, but this stunning shower was set in the Bride’s breathtaking backyard. I know, right? From the darling pink and white carnation backdrop to the floating frames to her sweet floral crown and white dress, smitten is my middle name when I’m flipping through the adorable gallery from Honey Honey Photography.

From Wendy of Perfect Affairs EventsAriana’s whimsical bridal shower was inspired by her luscious backyard garden. With scenery filled with tall oak trees, thick green grass, and crisp blue skies, our vision was clear. We knew we would combine Ariana’s love for blush tones, fresh floral crowns, and organic woody elements for an enchanted soiree deep in the woods.

For the tablescape, we combined components of burlap, lace, wood crates and slices, vineyard chairs, off white linens, and glass vessels. We finished the look by hanging rustic white birdcages overflowing with baby’s breath and greenery. While the highlight of the afternoon was taking pictures in front of the mesmerizing pink ombre backdrop, handcrafted with fresh carnations. Yummy desserts were also waiting on the playful drawer turned dessert table draped with feminine wooden squared frames.

In essence, we were able to produce a celebration that emitted Ariana’s love for nature and an ambiance of soft pink prettiness. When planning, remember to always stay true to what makes your heart race! There’s nothing Ariana loves more than blush accents, soft detail, feminine touches, and of course her two precious Shibas!

Romantic European Elopement Inspiration

This European-inspired shoot by Sally Pinera is simply stunning, no added fuss or unnecessary extras, just two people ready to say “I do.” With a beautiful bouquet in hand, a gorgeous gown and the sun’s natural light making them glow even more, this couple is absolutely radiating. Lindsey Jones‘ effortless hair and makeup adds even more romance and these pics are what I like to call frame worthy.

From Lindsey Jones Makeup ArtistryThe focus of this romantically inspired European elopement shoot was love. We wished to evoke a romantic feel with each and every element. From the bride’s effortless hair and makeup, to the way the groom stood waiting for his beloved with florals, to the handsome architecture surrounding the lovers, and the off shoulder lace and beaded gown. All of the elements that were chosen were to display a whimsical yet romantic elopement in Europe. We hope to inspire all brides and SMP readers from this light filled shoot for an effortless and heartfelt touch to their wedding day!
