Cozy Couples Session: The Open Trunk Workshop January 13, 2019

When community comes together, beautiful things are made! We had the opportunity to be a part of the design team for this intimate, cozy couples photo workshop that brought in a beautiful handful of local photographers, giving them the opportunity to shoot an intimate, in-home styled shoot with a real life couple. The setting was cozy, the mood so chill & the photos captured were so true and authentic. As we have said in the past, it is so incredible to be apart of these events- connecting with other creatives and seeing the perspective of the day through so many eyes is so incredible.

Take a peek below at the wonderful design team, as well as some beautiful photos captured from the workshop!

Rustic Italian Inspired Wedding

August 2018

Rustic Italian Inspired Styled Wedding as Featured in Ruffled Blog January 2019


It was the perfect summer day in YYC for the vision of this styled photoshoot to come to life. We are beyond grateful to have been on board this incredible styled shoot that was inspired from the old world beauty of Italy- showcasing its beautiful earthy colors, soft hues, textures & timeless elegance.

Our location was in the beautiful Baker Park located in Bowness – it created the perfect back drop full of lush greenery. The inspiration for the brides hair & makeup was ‘elegant simplicity’. We wanted to create a style that was elegant yet effortless, and one that showcased & complimented the stunning hair piece designed by Joanna Bisley. Nikki has gorgeous locks to work with, and with a softly textured, low ponytail with some detailing in in the back, we felt it was a perfect fit with the accessories and the gorgeous gown. We wanted to keep her makeup light and fresh to compliment the details of the hair & softness of the dress and to ensure it fit with the light and airy summer style.

Being able to do a collaboration of any size is such an inspiring & beautiful project for us. It allows us to see other amazing vendors in their element, allows us time to chat as often on wedding days, we don’t have those moments and allows us to expand our creativity in different styles/applications.

We encourage you all to check out all the beautiful work of the vendors below, and please enjoy the little gallery below of some more from this incredible shoot!

Welcome to our Blog!

Hello Beauties!

Well I have been on a bit of a hiatus from our blog since our new website launched last year. It has been a year of updating our marketing, social media & being busy with all our beautiful weddings, incredible clients & fun collaborations. It has also been something quite intimidating to jump back into as writing has always been a bit of a challenge for myself, but I want to share our teams incredible creative journey and showcase all the beautiful & talented stylists & artists we have, so here we go on a new adventure!

Thank you so much for all your patience while this part of our site was on hold & for all your support on our social media sites! Beyond grateful for having such an incredibly support community in this amazing city!

I am going to be sharing our teams most recent work as we create it this year, but also sharing some past content that we are so proud of! That will include some real weddings with our beautiful brides, collaborations with some talented local YYC vendors, some bits about our amazing artists & stylists & all things beautiful.

I hope that you enjoy our work & hope to have the opportunity to work with you one day!

-Robin
