Wedding Photography: Johanna & Greg

Friday, October 10, 2014

We love capturing large elaborate weddings, but there’s an undeniable charm about the smaller ones too. Everything is a bit more intimate and relaxed and the happiness in the room is palpable. Johanna & Greg had an intimate brunch wedding at The James Royal Palm hotel, where close friends and family traveled from different places to witness them elope. It was such a delight to have captured them.

Styled Shoot: Elegant Peruvian Wedding

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

I’m very lucky to have been raised in such a culturally vibrant country like Peru. I was exposed to incredible craftsmanship in our clothing and the accompanying accessories such as gorgeous embroidered skirts and stunning jewelry. I wanted to capture the essence of Peru in the context of a wedding so that I could combine these colorful textures but with elegant gold accents. And show that colorful can also be elegant with just the right amount. I approached Miranda from Miranda Hattie events because I knew she would take my vision to the next level.

Miranda let the colors, patterns and textures of their traditional fabrics be her guide. This led to a bright yet rich palette of colors and earthy accents. She enjoyed the opportunity to play with pattern, mixing styles to create an eclectic vibe that paired well with the wood and leather pieces that anchored the look. For the florals, she wanted to create a decadent feeling. This meant a look that bordered on the edge of restraint, using loads of vines and greenery with deep jewel-toned flowers that looked as if they had just been harvested from the surrounding garden. She added in lots of gold accents to lend a feeling of luxury and timelessness to the overall look.

Veronica from Anthololy Floral Design was inspired by the richness of their folklore, abundance of colors and textures, incorporating flowers that resemble the elaborate wool and alpaca weaving, along with native and curative flowers. Some of the blossoms such as theCelosia, Monarda, Passion vines and Amaranthus are not only beautiful to the eye but also have been use as dyes and for their healing properties.

Katie from Unearthed Vintage wanted to create a focal point for the cake that was different and accentuated the gold accents we wanted to incorporate. She combined all of their florentine nesting tables to create this unique look. She was also inspired by the venue and found the perfect spot to display her styled furniture.

Sandy from Sugar Fancies‘ vision for the cake was to merge a simple yet rustic feel with an air of refined elegance. She used metallic and shimmering elements such as edible gold foil and a hand piped Peruvian embroidery pattern to complete the look.

Wedding Video: Fang & Ben

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Fang & Ben had a very small and intimate wedding at Morada Bay. Our lovely bride Fang, had mentioned via our email conversations that they only needed us for a couple of hours on their special day and this had us a bit worried; how would we get enough content for the video? What we didn’t know, until we got to the beautiful paradise-like location, was that to we would have them all to ourselves for two hours! That never happens during a typical wedding and we made sure to take advantage of every second! We got to indulge so many of our creative impulses and they were just too adorable of a couple. We had a great time and couldn’t have been happier with the end result.

Venue: Morada Bay
