I think one thing all couples can agree on is that they want their wedding photos to be “timeless,” meaning they will still be appealing and in style (aside from fleeting fashion trends), five, 10 or 20 years from now. Probably the most important photography aspects for achieving this sense of timelessness—and ones I often see overlooked in wedding photography—are editing style and posing.
Of course, words like “timeless” and “stylish” are all relative. Everyone has their own definition of what is classic and enduring, and each individual couple has their own specific tastes. That said, I’ve been shooting weddings as a full-time profession for 10 years and I believe these are some of the things to consider when selecting a photographer who’ll give you photos that stand the test of time: Click here to read the rest of this post »
Warm, glowing, durable, classic–that’s gold, darling. And it is by FAR the hottest metal in the bridal-style universe. Oh–and just because gold is an essential part of wedding tradition the entire world over, doesn’t mean YOUR gold accessories need to be, well…traditional. Check out our favorite gold bridal accessory finds to see exactly what we mean!
Michael planned the sweetest proposal for his high school sweetheart Sarah. “After dinner, Michael told me to put a blindfold on. He took me to several places around Kingwood where we had special memories: our first kiss, where he first told me he loved me, and our old high school meet-up spot. At each stop, Michael gave me a rose and proceeded to tell me a reason why he loved me at every spot. The final stop was at the golf course where Michael and I had our first date. When I took off the blindfold, he was down on one knee with rose petals scattered around him and a bottle of champagne. After I said “yes”, Michael had gathered both of our families to celebrate,” says bride Sarah. A sweet proposal story like this deserves an even sweeter wedding. Just take a look at the fabulous pictures by Ever & Anon Photography. We can guarantee you’ll be swooning. Best wishes and congrats to the newlyweds!
From its serene gold-accented palette, to its seasonal menu of roasted corn chowder and beef tenderloin with wild-mushroom-and-onion risotto, to its crystal chandeliers and soft candlelight, Hayley and Jeffrey’s fall wedding is pretty much a perfect example of how to do fall elegance fabulously. The couple, who met on a blind date (!!)—which led to a second date the very next day—wanted their marriage celebration to be not just full of love, but utterly timeless. We think they did both, beautifully. And we’ve got the gorgeous photos by super-talented Houston photographer Sarah Ainsworth to prove it. Congratulations, Hayley & Jeffrey!
