Italy Destination Wedding Photographer | Lia and Rob’s Tuscany Wedding

Please believe me when I say: I have no idea how to begin writing about this wedding; and this is why: the bride and groom are fantastic and became some really good friends of ours, the wedding was just too pretty, and I know that even if I come up with some Shakespearean sonnet to describe it all, it won’t be enough. But ok, I will attempt with mere words to express it.

Lia and Rob were married at the Vignamaggio Villa in Tuscany Italy, and if it wasn’t for the photos, I would think the whole thing had been a dream. As the cab took Christine and I from Florence to Chianti, we could not believe the painterly quality of the landscapes that reeled in front of our eyes. Green hills upon cypress trees upon perfect vineyards. We squealed with delight at the thought of being able to photograph a wedding in such glory. We counted our blessings in that cab that day.

Vignamaggio was a sensational venue. It is said to be where the Mona Lisa herself was born…

Lia crafted her wedding vow paperie with hahnemuhle paper torn at the edges, rose ribbon, gold leaf, and vintage lace

The grandparents were held close by all day, in a locket hung by the bride’s bouquet

Soft pink and champagne boutonnieres for the men added a simple touch of romance and fit in so well with the surroundings

When Lia and Rob met for the first time that day, it was a truly beautiful moment- so touching and joyous

I adore the next two photos because their relationship at whole seems to be captured: Lia trying to hold back and be strong, and Rob right there to be her rock.

The pinks here make me swoon

Rustic objects embellished Vignamaggio all around; like this beautiful peach-colored cart, just lying there, flawlessly…

We were doubly as lucky to be photographing a bride who can be FIERCE in front of the camera

The venue was surrounded by vineyads and taylored hedges, reminescent of The Secret Garden

Lia’s witness sported the most feathery and girly gown, which also contrasted so well with the softness of the entire wedding

It was truly a celebration, even statues were adorned

Lia, in all her bridal glory…

The reception was embellished with the most thick and lucious wreaths of lemon leaves and fruits

So the scent in the air, was just as perfect as the visual elements

The reception took place under olive trees

and yes, their wedding reception was garnished with timeless chandeliers softly swaying by tree branches…

Lia hand picked vintage plates to add a unique and elegant touch to the decor

major swoon!


The bride also crafted each menu, with soft green fabric and lace

Lia and Rob are a beautiful couple, but more so, have a distinctively genuine relationship. The love and honesty that they share is infectious, and there are no words to express how fabulous they really are together

Kara | Modern-Vintage Boudoir Photography

Kara, as any boudoir subject, was a little nervous prior to her session; we assured her that there was nothing to be shy about, and that the session would be fun, romantic, and sort of liberating. She completely agreed after only a few shots. Kara had been planning her boudoir session for a couple of weeks with us, all the while sneaking around making sure that her groom would not find out! She joked with us that the whole situation could be interpreted very badly if Steven would have found out. You see, Kara booked a hotel room, packed a suitcase full of lingerie, and came home late as the session ran a little long 😉 Thankfully Steven did not find out, until Kara surprised him with a signature SimplyBloom album showcasing the intimate images just for him. We loved designing her album, as she included two very special & lovely quotes for her fiance. Kara, it was amazing meeting you, we all seem to have so much in common; we will have to celebrate at Thai Garden with you and your new hubby soon!

Boudoir in Savannah, GA | Savannah, Georgia Wedding Photography

We shot Madeline’s boudoir the day of her wedding in her glorious suite at the The Mansion on Forsyth Park in Savannah, GA. You know by now through her engagement & bridal session, that Madeline is ONE STYLISH woman. Every time we have met with her she has blown us away with her style and impeccable taste. We promise, she always seems put together by a professional stylist! The morning of her wedding we began with a few tasteful, playful, and just plain gorgeous images of the bride in her bridal lingerie. I think it’s VERY safe to say her man is a lucky guy 😉

Madeline had the wonderful idea to incorporate a few vintage Playboy magazines in her shoot, and we just loved this vintage element juxtaposed with the very MOD room.
