DIY Wednesday: Stained Glass Photo Project
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Victoria Hudgins; Photos by Pictilio

Many couples display their engagement photos at the reception. Here is one creative way to showcase them in style. Hung in the windows of your venue, this simple photo project transforms your love shoot into custom “stained glass.”  With Mother’s Day on our mind, we can’t help but think that this would also be a sweet gift for mom this weekend!

Materials: Printer, Tissue Paper, Embroidery Hoops or Backless Frames, Scissors, Engagement Photo Files

Step One. Print a selection of your favorite engagement photos onto white tissue wrapping paper. The easiest way to print on this type of paper is by taping it completely to a piece of computer paper and running it through an inkjet printer. You can also take the photos and tissue paper to your local copy store.

Step Two. Cut the printed photos to size by tracing the shape of the frame and trimming down with scissors.

Step Three. Carefully, take apart the embroidery hoop and position the cut photo as you would fabric. Secure the hoop and tighten if needed.

Step Four. String simple embroidery thread through the loop at the top of each hoop and hang in a window.

Mara + Danny: A Portrait Session by Jonathan Canlas
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements, Photography

Our facebook feeds are just buzzing with holiday engagements… oh what a fun time of year!  Wedding planning is about to be in full swing.  Perhaps you’re newly engaged?  We’ve had our eye out for super stylin’ engagement sessions; here’s a portrait session by Jonathan Canlas that delighted us entirely.

Meet Mara.

… And Danny…

Their city hipster wardrobe is quite enviable (and perfectly unique for an engagement session).  Take note of the primary colors (looking so beautiful in film) and the very clever pattern matching.

We love how the photos showcase them.  Just them.  Proof that you don’t need to play with tons of props to get a completely memorable engagement album. Their style, their love of the city, and the sweetness between the two of them are utterly apparent, making for personal, vibrant, perfect portraits.

Thanks sooooo much to Jonathan Canlas for sharing these with us! Check out more from his ‘Film is Not Dead’ series over here!

Houseboat Engagement Session by Jessica Lorren Organic Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements, Photography, Things we heart

Jessica Lorren is one of those photographers who makes everything she captures look just utterly gorgeous.  Add in a houseboat on the coast and one beautiful couple and the scene was set.  It’s our total pleasure to share Jared and Natalie’s intimate engagement session, photographed in southern Florida.

Jessica describes Jared and Natalie as incredibly sweet and so much fun. They actually lived on this houseboat together for two years and named it the Three Little Birds after themselves and their pup Jobi. Jared is a dive boat captain and Natalie works with him. Their May wedding will have a nautical theme so the boat was just the right place for their engagement shoot.

Sigh… there’s just nothing like good film work…

Congratulations Jared + Natalie!

A Quiet, Romantic Kind of Love…
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements, Photography, Things we heart

According to photographer, Katie Reed, Kristen and Mitchell share a quiet, romantic kind of love.  Katie captured the pair’s affectionate engagement photos in creative spaces with beautiful natural light.

These two met seven years ago, at a church youth group meeting.  They share a love for vintage style and they collected vintage teacups, plates and birdcages for their wedding day.  It was only fitting that they were photographed at the Orange Circle in Orange, CA, where there are several fun vintage and antique shops.

As we looked at these photos, we couldn’t help but think that- love is so grand…
