Press: Megha & Hari Featured in The Knot Chicago Magazine

A box of magazines arrived on my doorstep the other day and that means it is finally time to share some very exciting news! Megha and Hari’s incredibly gorgeous wedding is featured in the latest issue of The Knot Chicago magazine!!!I have been waiting on pins and needles for this issue to come out and, finally, the day has come! This beautiful wedding was one of my favorites of the last year and I am beyond excited that Megha and Hari get to share it and celebrate it all over again! Not to mention, it is my first full real wedding feature in The Knot and I can’t help but be over the moon about that!

Zoe Report Box of Style – Summer Box

The Zoe Report Box of Style is the one subscription box that I love every single time it shows up at my door! So far each box has felt totally worth it’s cost, as the value of the contents far exceed the subscription price tag. The items are always fashion forward and I usually end up using them right out of the box! The only downside is that the boxes are delivered quarterly by season and waiting months for the next box of fabulous goodies is borderline painful! Gah!

Here is a peek at this season’s box!

The first big ticket item in this season’s box was the white leather pushlock handbag (Retails for $150) from The Cambridge Satchel Company. This fresh cross-body bag is perfect for the summertime! Concerts, street festivals, a day at the beach, this bag is pretty perfect for all of it! The other oh so summery steal is the Mara Hoffman Sarong wrap (Retails for $98). I love me some fun Mara Hoffman prints, so I was excited to find this in my box. The wrap is colorful, bright, and wearable for everyone!

Next up were some summer beauty essentials from Too Faced. The Bronzer in the ‘Sun Bunny’ shade (Retails for $30) and Lip Créme in ‘Spice Spice Baby’ (Retails for $22) are both items that you can rock all summer long for that sun kissed look. Throw them in your Cambridge cross-body bag and go! The lip color especially is such a great shade that pretty much anyone can pull off.

Probably my favorite item in the box this season is the O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Face Peel (Retails for $44). Talk about much needed! This refreshing spray exfoliates and smooths your skin and I kind of can’t get enough of this gentle spray!

Finally, the Zoe box is not without a go-to stylist staple! This box it was these Nippies from Bristol Six (Retails for $26). Great to throw in your closet for those lightweight summer tops and dresses that may reveal a bit too much. Totally useful to have on hand!

Have you tried the Zoe box yet?! What subscription boxes are you loving? 


The Shepard Tribe – Los Angeles Lifestyle Photographer

Yes, I specialize in weddings and couples, but when my dear friend Brienne asks me to photograph her crazy adorable family near their new oh so pretty property nestled in the mountains of California, I can’t possibly say no! With a camera bag full of film to eat up that yummy California light, I gladly hopped on a plane to spend some time with the Shepard tribe!

Things I Love: Mish Mosh Edition XVIII

We are halfway through the summer and it is about time I throw a fresh batch of Things I Love at your face! (And, lucky for you, some of my picks this month are actually FOR your face!) Get to it, people!


Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars

Meet my summertime jam! These scrumptious frozen greek yogurt bars are this ice cream lover’s latest obsession. They are super low in calories, come in lots of extra tasty flavors (my favorite is Sea Salt Caramel!), and have quippy little sayings on their packaging! Does it get any better than that?! Besides they are actually made with greek yogurt, soooo they are basically a health food, am I right?!

Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner

This is my new go-to face toner! I’m kind of addicted to using a skin toner on my face everyday, but a lot of toners have alcohol in them and can be super drying on your skin, which is definitely not what you want when you want to use the product daily! So, when I stumbled upon this Rose Petal alcohol-free toner from Thayers, I was eager to try it! And I kind of have a thing for Rose Petal toners in general, so I was totally sold upon sight! Not to mention with witch hazel and aloe vera, this toner is ultra soothing to the skin, while it also tones and cleans your face.

Anne Klein ‘Fashion Fit’ Smart Watch

Obsessed with this new take on a fitness tracker by Anne Klein! I have to say it is so nice to have a step tracker that is also a nice looking watch when I want it to be. And talk about an amazing deal…you get the tracker, a sport band, and a gold watch bangle all for one price! No shopping around for extra accessories to make your tracker more fashionable, this is an all in one gem!

Geraldine Magazine

mecca of incredibly refined and gorgeous wedding inspiration! Only two issues in and I am hooked!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector 

Let’s just pretend we are not halfway through summer and I am still as pale as ever, eeek! Okay, okay, I am! But, thanks to some bronzer and this miracle product I can fake that sun kissed glow I long to have! I have been using this highlighter in the Opal color for the past month or so and I am totally hooked!

The Girl on the Train

If you loved Gone Girl, this is your next read! I know, maybe I’m a little slow to the party on this one, but it is a page turner and I’m glad I hoped on the bandwagon here!

What are YOU obsessed with lately?! Any new music, books, products? Tell me, tell me!

Wedding: Sansan & Brian – Carondelet House

Last fall, I had the honor of shooting alongside my dear friend, Brienne Michelle, at Sansan and Brian’s incredibly beautiful and joy-filled wedding at Carondelet House and I am ecstatic to finally share all the pretty from their amazing day! Sansan got ready at the gorgeous Millenium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, surrounded by her sweet bridesmaids, and met Brian for their first look in the Biltmore’s wonderfully gilded lobby that I still dream about. Then it was off to the oh so fantastic Carondelet! And from the sweetest of ceremonies to the most touching speeches given during their reception, the day overflowed with unabashed beautiful love at every turn.
