I was so excited when Tyler contacted me in regards to photographing their big day! I recently was able to do their engagement session and I had a great time photographing these two. I can’t wait to capture their beautiful wedding in October I know is going to be Ah-mazing. Also they are the happy winners from our Cutest Couple Contest.
It is time to get down to the nitty-gritty now that your wedding date has been finalized. Sure, you are a modern girl when it comes to everyday life but being a tad traditional is certainly not going to hurt especially when you are thinking about one of the most important days of your life. It is best to go by the old English rhyme, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. After all, you are not going to be blushing bride again (touchwood) and would love to get wedded with all the ancient traditions intact. But do you really have an idea of how to go about it? Check out some of the best wedding traditions we feel should be around forever and see if you can be creative about them.
1. Something Old
Take a long hard look at the family heirlooms and decide on the exceptional piece that you would like to wear for your wedding. It could be as simple as a passed down bridal gown, definitely, but we feel that you are entitled to your very own wedding dress So forget, it and concentrate on other artifacts instead. What about your granny’s beautiful emerald brooch or your aunt’s beautiful bejeweled hair pin? There are many ways to incorporate them either in the bouquet or centerpiece. A simple name-tag will do too as long as it is steeped in history. Your man could match you by sharing the tradition wholeheartedly and turn up with his Grand-Grand-Dad’s cuff-links on his sleeve.
2. Something New
Having something new on is not going to be a problem in the least. You are sure to have dresses and matching jewelry, shoes, cosmetics and what not. Yet the commonplace items do not get your heart beating well and truly, right? Why don’t you simply put on the most cherished gift that your man has given you? Never mind whether it is a chunky solitaire or a single red rose. Both speak of love, the passion that needs to be on the forefront on your wedding day.
3. Something Borrowed
Do you really need to borrow things on your wedding day? Maybe not, but tradition dictates that you do. Turn to your friends and family this time. You might borrow a particularly frilly wisp of nothing in the form of a handkerchief from the giggling maid of honor as well. A seat of earrings, a bracelet, a ribbon or an armband off your BFF can serve the purpose equally well too. So go on, don’t hesitate to ask. It’s a noble tradition that you will be upholding.
4. Something Blue
This part seems to be the easiest but may turn out to be trickiest one. You can’t just go for a blue wedding gown, not when you are keen on tradition. So virginal white is a must! Alas! Your shoes need to match your gown and you can hardly throw away your image of a trendy woman on this day. Think hard and you are sure to come up with something innovative like a small piece of name tag sewn in blue thread or a blue iris in your bouquet.
There are many other traditions, and this list should only get you started. For the most adventurous brides, why not make up a new tradition?
I get very excited to capture such a wonderful moment like Maternity. The beginning of a new life soon to be born. Meet this cute couple about to have their first child.
Meet This beautiful and smart girl. A couple of months ago her mom contacted me to do Vanessa’s Senior Portrait, I sent her all my information including the senior rep information. She looked at it and said she wanted to schedule her session and also be Modern Star Senior rep. She sent me several pictures of Vanessa so I can see how pretty she was, I looked at her and I said to myself wow this girl is pretty. Finally I met Vanessa and her mom and the picture didn’t show her true beauty Vanessa is….WOW, WOW, WOW this is girl is on fire she is pretty and very smart. I’m not kidding just look at her picture. Capturing your moment and your beauty.

I met this girl a couple of years ago when I moved to Texas. The first person the came to me with a smile hugged me and say hi. Every time you see this girl, she has a smile on her face, she is always giggling, great personality and of course she is the selfie queen. Just want to wish you good luck in school. You look Fabulous!
In one of my trips to Tennessee, I got the pleasure to take pictures of the Martinez Family and meet their beautiful baby girl Mia. I can’t wait to go back and do more of this funny and beautiful family.
This summer I got the pleasure to go for a weekend to my wonderful state of Tennessee where I lived for 21 wonderful years. I enjoyed food, friends, family and I did a couple of sessions on my vacation. I was so excited when Eliza’s mom messaged me to do Eliza’s Senior portraits like I have done to all of her kids. I’m so blessed to work with this family, I can’t wait to do the youngest kid in 2 years.
