Claire of Mad Love Events:

 "When I first met Anya, of Anya Kernes Photography, I felt an immediate connection to her shared love for romance, softness, movement, and natural lighting. We found inspiration after a quick season of rain - much needed in Southern California. Suddenly, there was so much life that came so quickly, nurtured by the rain and the season. We found a beautiful venue (Villa del Sol d'Oro), now completely lush with greenery, blooming buds, and a spattering of delicate wildflowers. It was a breath-taking setting for us to put together our vision - we had a flawless combination of luscious greenery in the garden, beautiful post rain lighting, stone walls and walkways, and gorgeous olive trees.  We were intentional in embracing natural softness and movement using raw linens, mostly foraged greenery used in the bouquet & centerpieces, flowing silk ribbons to put together a shoot that celebrated romance and the the beauty that comes with spring rain in California."

Desert Bridal Editorial, Valley of Fire

Desert Bridal Editorial, Valley of Fire

This desert shoot in the Valley of Fire that Allen and Ashley dreamed up couldn't have been more chic, elegant and beautiful. They put together a dream team, like Layers of Lovely who created the most organic and gorgeous bouquet overflowing with all kinds of blush and peach beauties. And of course, it couldn't have been possible without that magical desert light that my film just soaked up and the wind that made everything come alive. I loved being a part of this little project!

Autumn Color Palette Inspiration - River Oaks Charleston

Autumn Color Palette Inspiration - River Oaks Charleston

Beautifully put together and dreamed up by East Made Event Company, this enchanting shoot was set in River Oaks Charleston. With rich dark accents of dusty mauve and shades of red wine sprinkled throughout the shoot, it was the perfect combination of wild beauty and elegance like you’ve never seen before.

Every part of the shoot was a work of art and the beauty of it was absolutely overwhelming. The floral arrangement by La Fleur du Jour above the table was spilling out with wild garden roses, foliage and Spanish moss cascading down to the sea of candles that were sitting on magical clouds of Spanish moss. The delicate details on the gorgeous Alexandra Grecco dress, while paired with the wild blooms, perfectly complemented the surroundings to add even more dreaminess and magic to the shoot.
