One of the best things about planning your wedding is the freedom you have to implement your personal style. This can come into play in numerous ways with decor, venue, and even when figuring out what your bridesmaids will wear. We’ve seen the trend pop up over the last couple of years where the bridesmaid dresses don’t have to be the same. It gives your girls the chance to choose a style that they feel confident in, and it adds a fun design element to your day! Although this gives you and your girls lots of freedom, you might also be wondering how to do it in a way that is still cohesive and flattering for all! Recently, I had the pleasure of shooting the amazing Johanna August collection at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Her gorgeous line of bridesmaid dresses gives the perfect example of how to implement this trend into your wedding day. The way to insure your ladies are cohesively dressed, even with a mix matched look, is to pick one designer, a color, or a few different hues and have them pick their own styles. This way the dresses have a similar feel because of the color and designer, but the different dress styles are what gives the look an extra flair. Check out the beautiful styles below for some inspiration for your own day!

Lighting can singlehandedly make or break an image. It can be the difference between an ordinary photo and an extraordinary photo. That’s why many photographers wait until the much coveted golden hour to shoot… but what if you were able to work the light and shoot all throughout the day, creating beautifully lit photos at any time of day?

I’m hosting a 3 day lighting challenge, starting Wednesday, May 1, that will help you confidently shoot at any time of day!

Create better lit photos with our 3 daily lighting lessons, straight to your inbox. FREE! These 3 tips will instantly improve your photography.

Complete the daily assignments and win prizes, including Refined Presets and a Fujifilm X-T3 (which is one of the cameras I use)!

I have always loved Nisie’s work, and if you don’t know her, I’m willing to bet you’ve at least seen her beautiful work. For her personal branding shoot, I wanted to bring out her creative and happy energy. I suggested that we incorporate her dog and I had this crazy idea for her to decorate the exterior of her shop… well, you give Nisie an idea and she runs with it! But I am so in love with the outcome. I love how this not only shows her creativity as a floral designer, but also her fun personality! We are all each our own brands and that is really the main thing that sets you apart from anyone else. No one else does YOU better than YOU, so my goal in personal branding photography is to bring out the best YOU and let YOU shine!
