I can’t seem to recall a time, ever since we became friends, when Mia and I weren’t discussing her dream engagement photos. Like our common love for babydoll dresses (OK, just so we’re clear: I don’t wear them, I just love them for their grunge connotations), it felt like planning her engagement shoot was part […]Read more "Country Strong: Neil and Mia"

And who was I to say no to an equine-related concept (those of you who’ve been following my blog will know I’ve […]Read more "Cowboy Kind of Love: Carl and RJ"

Not overly overcast or anything—just that there was no hint of blue at all! And […]Read more "As We Walk in Fields of Gold: Paolo and Kiselle"
Just when you think I’m done with this crap, here I am again with another set of Poladroids. Blame it on design It Girl Rita Konig. I was at three different bookstores this month looking for a copy of her book Domestic Bliss but couldn’t find one (don’t they stockpile on anything other than teenage […]Read more "Shake It Like a Polaroid Picture 2"
