Butterfly Ballet Boudoir Session

Did y’all take ballet lessons when you were younger? I did for a couple years and my favorite part was most definitely twirling in my tutu (instead of doing what I was supposed to). It’s the exact memory that came to mind upon seeing these dreamy images from Archetype. It’s that little girl ballet all grown up and transformed into one of the prettiest boudoir shoots you ever did see.

From ArchetypeMoody, organic bridal boudoir shoot for a bride with whimsical style. The utterly romantic lace and ethereal tulle skirt set the tone for a dreamy collection of images.

“Let us spend our lives chasing the tiny moments of grace that hide in borrowed breaths, stolen glances, and the last instant before smiling lips come to rest.” -Tyler Knot Gregson

DIY insider tip: I made the skirt myself using three layers of silk tulle over two layers of the heavier nylon tulle. Follow online directions to color mix dye for the desired tones of blue. Stitched all layers into a gathered waist bound by a satin bias cut ribbon.

From Select StudiosCrystle and Max’s wedding was one we were absolutely looking forward to shooting! We’ve had the honor of working with Crystle before when she held the title of Miss Texas USA in 2007 and then went on to win Miss USA the following year. She now stars in the Tyler Perry sitcom fittingly titled “For Better or Worse” on the OWN Network. Max is a Belgian-born model who set the bar extremely high when he proposed to Crystle, after a surprise helicopter ride, in front of friends and family who wore t-shirts that read “True Love is Crystle Clear”. The couple celebrated their nuptials in front of 320 guests at Chateau Cocomar in August and it was truly a fairytale!

From Kelli ElizabethMichelle & Scott got married at an old historic Library. Nestled in downtown Houston, this historic gem was built in 1926, with classic architecture. The setting was a perfect juxtaposition of urban life, and southern romance. To keep a natural feel, we used bay leaf garland to not deter from the gorgeous setting. Bistro lighting brought their foodie love of adorable cafes into the main study hall. Using vintage polaroid cameras and books from her family’s library brought a personal chapter to their wedding story.

As the bride works for an advertising firm, she worked on all the design and signage for their wedding in-house, and they looked amazing! The groom incorporated his fun sense of humor with his fourth of July themed socks and Wayfarers for him and his groomsmen. For wedding favors, the couple made their homemade spice blend in jars for everyone to take home. Each one labeled “The Perfect Blend.”

Romantic Picnic Surprise Proposal

Are you ready to see the sweetest proposal? I’m not just talking about those perfectly pink macaroons or even those lovely pastel blooms, no m’dears because this surprise proposal is all that and so much more. With a plan laid out, this darling duo set out for a picnic styled shoot that turned proposal, and with Dana Fernandez Photography behind the lens every happy tear is waiting for you, here!

From Dana Fernandez Photography … Two weeks before the proposal, our nephew, Matthew, told us that he was going to propose to his girlfriend Ashley! We were so ecstatic! We immediately offered to secretly capture everything. His original idea was to go for a walk along Houston’s Buffalo Bayou and lead her to a random picnic, which is where he would propose!

As we got closer to the date, I started to think about the fact that Ashley would probably want to be dressed up and looking her best, especially since every moment would be captured. So, about a week before, I came up with an idea to still do the original picnic but to make it appear to be a styled shoot.

Thanks to the amazing vendors, Blush and Vine, Hey Lovely Makeup, and Buttercup, we were able to put our scheme together in just a few short days! The day before, I called Matthew and Ashley acting like I had a styled shoot and told Ashley that the models got sick. I asked if she could fill in last minute and since it was a “styled shoot”, Ashley was to dress up and have her hair and makeup done.

Everything down to the last detail was absolute perfection! We even used a blanket that Matthew had custom made with pictures of them together over the past couple of years and also Matthew’s parents’ wedding flutes for the champagne. Ashley was completely surprised and everything turned out so beautifully!

Romantic Boudoir Session

My inner brave girl is totally dying over this boudoir session.  Well, not just my inner brave girl.  Because this masterpiece of boudoir beauty?  It’s soooo romantic, and soooo lovely.  Think light-filled images from Blush By Katie Lamb, the beauty stylings of Sunkissed And Made Up and gorgeous attire from Salua LingerieFor Love And Lemons and Eloise By Anthropologie.  Soak it all in right here

From Blush By Katie Lamb… I wanted this session to reflect my soft, romantic, and feminine approach to boudoir photography. I choose fabrics and textures that reflected this such as lace and silk, and shot in a simple studio location that wouldn’t take away from the softness and simplicity of the photos. The fabulous hair and makeup team at Sunkissed and Made Up translated my vision perfectly by using neutrals and soft shades of pink.
