“Color is everything, black and white is more.” – Dominic Rouse

Black and white pictures are a complex creature- there is classic and simple elegance to them- something that hints at a time gone by when full color images were not available. Yet there is also a complex and mysterious aspect there as well- what are we missing when we don’t see the colors present in that fleeting moment? What is left for us to discover for our selves?

The brides last moments of quiet and calm before the excitement of the wedding are captured in this sweet image.

 

This week we share some of the most eye catching and show stopping images from our past clients, taken by the incredibly talented collection of wedding photographers that we are lucky enough to work with here in the Las Vegas wedding community.

You can feel the love, support and encouragement that surrounds this beautiful bride as her bridesmaids offer the final touches before she heads down the aisle.

The brides sweet smile and the newly married couples tender embrace is what the eye is drawn too in this shot taken right after the ceremony.

Last year we were lucky enough to work with international cosmetic and beauty power house COVERGIRL for their national conference and product launch event. It was one of the highlights of our year and it got me looking a bit deeper into the company and their history.

Any one who knows me, can totally attest- I jump at the opportunity to dive into an online research project!!

 

Look at this “lovely”, vintage 9 hour “eye polish” ad!?

 

 

 

 

Below is a collection of some of the fun vintage adds as well as some of the exciting new brand ambassadors the company has welcomed.

 

 

Something that really stood out to me while I was reading up on COVERGIRL was its long standing practice of diversity and inclusion.  For decades they have celebrated beauty in all its shapes, shades and colors.

The brand broke ground and shook the foundation (hehe makeup pun totally intended) of the cosmetic industry in late 2016 by announcing that makeup artist James Charles would be the companies first male spokes model.

Another big win for inclusion in the industry was when the company also brought on Muslim beauty blogger Nura Afia to the team.

 

Another celebration and example that extraordinary beauty is found all across the globe.

Sometimes when i should be working on the mountains of paper work that surround my desk, or I get on the internet to check an address of an appointment…….it happens!!! I get completely sucked into the never ending labyrinth that is the internet.

Most recently, I’ve stumbled across some INCREDIBLY beautiful images of brides dawning equally as beautiful art on their bodies.

 

 

Take a look at some of the ones that really caught our eye.

Again with a beautiful bold red lip!!! I am such a sucker for a bride brave enough to wear a colorful dress!!! This stunners ink grabbed my attention but this stunning pink gown is princess perfect.

This incredible moment right after their love is made official is almost enough to make you cry.

With this delicate up-do hairstyle with woven ivy, this bride is really pulling at our hearts!

Far more breath taking than this sun set shot is the over flowing joy and love flowing from these two. You can see the adventurous and exciting spirit they share.

A New Found Love of IKEA

In the last 6 weeks I have planned and implemented a move to a new studio, a move to a new house and several fabulous get togethers. This busy fall schedule and the recent opening of the new IKEA in Las Vegas has us loving all things Scandinavian and sleek for the season. Here’s a collection of some of the bits we’ve come to love.

Rotera Lanterns

Lanterns ($4 each) hung from a tree set such a romantic tone for a sophisticated garden party or backyard bon fire. Inside, they can be lined up along a dining table with spider webs and candles would be perfect for a spooky Halloween set up, and could be transformed with a bit of greenery for Christmas. 

 

 

 

 

 

Alseda Stoolasleda

With this versatile feature, it can be hard to know if taking a seat in the back yard, setting your cocktail down for a moment or kicking your feet up is more appropriate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visionar Hanging Decorations ikea-3

Hang various sizes of these classic paper pompoms ($5 each) give the space dimension. If using outdoors in holiday decor or for a night wedding, wrap with white lights and garland.

 

 

 

 

 

IKEA PS Cabinet

This industrial piece works well in a house as a buffet or sideboard, but is also ideal in an office for files and supplies. The sleek lines and industrial appearance provide a really lovely contrast to some softer materials and elements, line luxurious cushions and house plants that are often found in the home.

Blomster Candle Holders ikea-4

With elegance and ease, these candle holders ($16 for set of 3) will add height and drama to a table scape or mantle alike. Like many of the lighting options found in that blue and yellow nirvana that is IKEA, these candles have so many uses that they are just perfect for- from wedding decorations to setting a warm and romantic tone on a patio.

 

 

 

While we could joyously spend a whole day wandering from room to room in that lovely warehouse, and every time we go in there a new favorite is spotted, these are just a few at the top of our current list.

For more brilliant inspiration on how to incorporate IKEA into your wedding decor check out this lovely post at Tailored Fit Photography. And the always delightful Brit + Co. has some clever uses as well.

Natalie and Mark were married in a truly splendid event at the Mandarin Oriental, and their sweet four legged fur baby Miss Abby was prominently featured front and center with her happy parents.

The ceremony and reception came together flawlessly with the guidance of the wedding coordinator genius that is Andrea Eppolito Events. No detail was left unattended, and from start to finish the guest, and most importantly the happy couple were completely at ease and in love!

When ever a bride tells us that she is working with the team at Alt F Photographers, we do a bit of a happy dance here. We just KNOW that they are going to get some really exquisite images of their special day.
