A few words from Karen regarding her type of Photography:

“Boudoir photos are an opportunity to celebrate your self and your body, and to show appreciation for it. Due to the daily images society bombards us with, many of us end up being incredibly hard on our bodies, and easily forget all the great things our body does for us. My purpose is to create a safe and fun environment. To pamper you, to celebrate your accomplishments, highlight your strengths and navigate through your weaknesses. To nix the negativity and embrace the moment, and capture you as you are in the present moment.”

“Here’s to strength, unabashed confidence and sensuality. And to being unapologetically human.”

De-Stress Before Your Wedding

We hate to break it to you ladies, but just because your wedding is paid for, your dress is in and you have no bridesmaid’s issues doesn’t mean that your stress levels will immediately plummet. Oh no, for some reason, your wedding stress will peak in the days leading up to the ceremony. However, you shouldn’t go down without a fight. So, here is what you should do to beat wedding eve stress.

Spa Day
Yes, nearly every woman has fantasized about a spa day and with good reason. Spending a day, or even an hour, at a spa can work wonders. However, you will always have something to do the day before your wedding day. Thus, we recommend electing to spend a day at the spa a few days before your ceremony. A good massage is enough to knock someone out for a solid day, therefore if you want to be your best on your wedding day, visit the spa a few days before your walk down the aisle.

Go For A Walk
There is nothing like getting out and getting some fresh air to clear your mind and help you think. The best thing about it is – it’s free! If you live in a place with gorgeous scenery, get out there and walk. Hitting the pavement will help you get away from stress and just appreciate where you are at this moment in your life. So, breathe deeply and take it all in.

Park

Self-Imposed Exile
Now, exiling yourself may seem like a punishment, but it is the opposite. It is a reward and it is fabulous! Tell your friends and family that you are taking me time and they are not to contact you unless it is an absolute emergency. Then, have some food delivered, prepare some herbal tea and get ready to burn through half of your Netflix queue in one night. You deserved it for making it this far, now it’s time to treat yourself!

Beating stress does not require thousands of dollars. It simply requires a bit of quiet time to help you get your mind and body back on track. Never be afraid to tell someone you need a break or to take a few minutes to be alone. Your mental health will thank you and so will your fiancé.

Stylized Shoot by PhotoKisses

Kristina Stockton of PhotoKisses, brings a unique Brave-inspired wedding that encourages brides to think outside the box. If you are planning a Disney princess inspired wedding, without the royal stuffy pompousness, then this may be for you!

201505_PhotoKisses_176 201505_PhotoKisses_164 201505_PhotoKisses_163 201505_PhotoKisses_020 201505_PhotoKisses_040201505_PhotoKisses_070201505_PhotoKisses_103 201505_PhotoKisses_161 201505_PhotoKisses_424

Here are a few words from Kristina regarding the inspiration behind this shoot:

“I took the idea of Merida, the wild and untamed Scottish princess, and imagined her on her wedding day. She would be the type of girl who would choose a small and intimate garden wedding instead of a ballroom (or castle), eyes only for her handsome groom she picked out herself. She wouldn’t bother much with details, so a simple and elegant decor with a touch of unruliness, arrow and bear elements, and a few Scottish accents is all it takes to make this princess’ wedding dream come true.”

“Oh, and of course, big wild red hair – but that’s more of a bonus than a requirement”

Stylized Shoot By From The Hip Photo

From The Hip Photo began with two people deeply in love. Nina Barry & Danny de Zayas founded From the Hip Photo during the time they were planning their wedding. It was a joint venture specializing in wedding, event and portrait photography. The business was named in a nod to the candid, spontaneous style espoused by its photographers as well as the fresh, distinctive aesthetic of their work.

During their first full year focusing exclusively on photography, the pair photographed three dozen weddings in addition to numerous engagement and portrait sessions… and they’ve haven’t looked back since! Today, they have expanded to five full time members!
