This was a really fun collaboration with Tatiana Ashakova, who is a super creative and talented hair and makeup stylist. She also designs really beautiful hair accessories that our model wore in the shoot as well. Tatiana sourced a beautiful couture dress from Joyce Young and delicate gowns from Shell Belle Couture. Botanic Art made us a beautiful bouquet and garland which I wrapped around our gorgeous model, Julia. I love the idea of a bride setting aside a bit of time on the morning of the wedding for a short boudoir session and bridal portraits. I always spend a few minutes photographing my brides right before we head off to the ceremony, but scheduling more time for bridal portraits would be amazing!

It is one of my favorite times of the year. Wedding season has just begun and the trees are exploding with blooms, both of which make me oh so very happy :) Erin & Bobby were the sweetest couple who were visiting Berlin from the US and wanted a heartbeats session to celebrate their time together in one of their favorite cities in the world. We had a fantastic afternoon together and even though it wasn’t quite the warm spring day we had planned for, they both did a great job of not looking cold in the photos ;)

Oh man do these images have me itching to get back to Ireland soon and these autumn colors just made my heart skip a beat. You all might know that I am more than a little bit obsessed with veils and tulle -how gorgeous is her grey veil and dress?! I have long been a fan of non-white wedding dresses, not only are they super unique and flattering, a bride can usually pull off wearing it again after the big day. I am also just madly in love with the dresses that Emily Riggs creates, her new collection has some gorgeous jewel toned wedding gowns.  Pearl & Godiva are hosting two more Styling Pilgrimages this year, and I can highly recommend them to all my wedding industry friends! It was the perfect few days to recharge my creative batteries surrounded by an incredibly talented group. More magic created by the lovely ladies of Pearl and Godiva coming to the blog soon! Make sure to check out all the super talented vendors from at the bottom of the post and more images which were published on Hochzeitsguide.

This was such a fun collaboration with my super talented friends, Lena Schleweis & Botanic Art.  We all adore our brides wearing flowers in their hair, but wanted to create some inspiration beyond the flower crown. The giant succulent and dahlia are bold for a wedding day, but oh so fun! Hoping to see some more brides thinking a bit outside the box with their florals and hair in 2015!

The past few months have been pretty amazing and full of fun creative shoots that I cannot wait to share! When I was in California in December I got to collaborate with my dear friend TJ Hazzard, who is an incredibly talented hair stylist and all around amazing person, on a shoot in the Santa Rita Hills. I have driven between Santa Barbara and my hometown of San Luis Obispo about a million times and have always been in love with the rolling hills of Northern Santa Barbara County. The vast countryside that lines the highway has always made my heart skip and beat and I have wanted to plan a shoot there for ages. Finally we got the chance to make it happen and a few days before Christmas organized a fun bridal shoot with a gorgeous blush Reem Acra gown.  I love seeing the pastel toned dresses in the new bridal collections and am SO hoping some more European designers start to add some color soon to their lines soon. Grey and Blush wedding gowns look great on almost every skin tone (unlike white dresses) and are so unique!  During our shoot, I shot 100% film while Andreas shot digital, so an extra big thank you to him for being his amazing self. :)  If you want to see more, check out the gallery with more images.

A few days after Dominik and Franzi’s city hall wedding in Berlin, Andreas and I traveled to Bavaria to photograph their church wedding in their hometown. Not only are they just the sweetest (and gorgeous!) couple, their family and friends were equally welcoming and it was crystal clear that these two are just a perfect match. It was such a lovely celebration, with so many beautiful handcrafted details, and was definitely a labor of love with their family and friends coming together to help make the day amazing. The church they married in is the same church both Franzi’s parents and grandparents tied the knot in, and her mother made the gorgeous peony arch. The reception was held in the garden of Franzi’s family’s hotel, and an empty barn they transformed into a stunning reception venue. All the DIY details looked incredible and I was shocked they had done it all on their own. The groom, Dominik, made the most incredible photobooth, in a reclaimed wood stand. Looking back through these photos, I cannot stop smiling and obviously had a really hard time editing down my favorites :) Thank you again, dear Franzi and Dominik, for asking us to document both of your weddings, it was truly an honor to be there. I am thrilled that Franzi & Dominik’s wedding was published on Style Me Pretty, check out the post here.

    OH MY GOODNESS. Everything about this celebration is perfect. I am just in LOVE with the barn tables, beer keg and BBQ. Beautiful couple, and looks like a memorable day filled with all things beautiful. Great shots, Ashley!
