Beachy Waves: Taystyles
Venue: The Ruth Bancroft Gardens

A few months back, I began the process of planning an Instagram takeover with our local Anthropologie Walnut Creek. Everyone there and the BHLDN Walnut Creek were absolutely wonderful to work with! I knew immediately that I wanted to shoot a bridal portrait session as showcase set of images that I would share. It was so fun to create my own vision and see that vision evolve with every varying collaborator. Connecting with these talented ladies sharing in the magic is so rewarding and fun!! Aghh .. I was so excited to stumble upon The Ruth Bancroft Gardens.. it’s like you step into another land when you enter the gardens .. and honestly it still makes my heart flutter to think it’s hiding in the neighborhoods near me! : ) Here’s a small gallery of images from that session.. and I’ll share a few in a blog post soon about some behind the scenes taking some lifestyle self and family portraits to give a recent introduction to who I am and more about me : ) … but for now.. goodness that golden hour and Torie in that bridal set that is so classically boho with the perfect amount of flutter in the skirt! ahh I die! .. the halo the fishtail half up-do and beachy waves! and not to mention that soft and warm smoky look on her eyes… so so much I love here! Enjoy!
