Palo Alto Backyard Wedding : Lindsay and Danny : Part 1

This past summer I had the opportunity to second shoot with a couple of photographers whose work I admire. As a professional photographer, it is great to second shoot from time to time for a couple reasons. 1, I get to see how someone else works- and that is always helpful in thinking about how I can best do my job. 2, I get to practice what I love doing without the pressures of it being my own wedding- this allows me to try new techniques in action, without worrying terribly about missing a shot. Over the next couple months, I’ll be featuring shots from weddings I second shot.

This is a wedding I shot with the fabulous Loren Weltsch. She is a dear friend who also happens to be a ridiculously talented photographer. This wedding took place at Lindsay’s childhood home in Palo Alto and she and Danny traveled from out of the area to get married there. I love the colors they chose as well as the crafty personal touches. After so much rain lately, it was really fun to edit these bright summertime images!

The bright blue and pops of yellow are to die for.

These custom fabric hairpieces can do double duty! They can be a hairpiece or corsage and the artist will customize them to fit your color scheme.

Remember Rhiannon and Tony’s stunning wedding at Old St. Hilary’s in Tiburon? Rhiannon rocked a birdcage veil and it really set the tone and style for her wedding. Try making your own! You can buy a yard of Russian net (or French net for a softer feel) for $8 a yard online and 100 Layer Cake offers a great little tutorial here. Add  a flower clip or feather hair piece for some drama and you have a one of a kind accent for your day.

I know I know… didn’t we just celebrate a birthday last week? We did, and here we are celebrating my daughter’s birthday today. Just you wait, we have another one coming next week! January is a bit nuts around here!

My little Cecily turned 5 today. That marks 5 years of daily amazement of who she is and who she is becoming. She brings such an intense light to our life, and teaches us something new daily. We are blessed to have her.

Happy Birthday Jellybean!

Cecily is 5

Birthday Bird from Etsy

This past Wednesday was my birthday and this week’s “Friday I’m in Love” goes out to Jesse (my husband) for making sure my birthday was amazing. He not only planned a great evening last night (umm massage at Burke Williams??) , but also arranged for me to get out of town this weekend sans children. Yay! I get some time with my sister and a girlfriend on Saturday and get to snowboard on Sunday- woo hoo! I love you Jesse, you are the best!
