Salt Lake City Engagement Session

I know we spend a fair amount of time on wedding videos, but I must admit it’s not the only thing I love about weddings. When you consider a wedding, you have to think about all of the aspects that go into it. There are so many little pieces that it makes sense that it takes a year long engagement to get there and all of the decisions along the way. Every once in awhile, I stumble across an engagement shoot that I can’t take my eyes off of or a wedding story that I just have to share. Wedding videos were a start on Yow Yow! but I think over time, we might expand to other details. Hopefully you’ll be on board with us for that too!

I’ve seen so many engagement shoots that emphasize setting and being around scenery and the outdoors. This downtown Salt Lake City shoot strips all of that down. It’s so simple and so perfect.

A Wedding With the Olsen Touch

When I first laid eyes on this wedding, I couldn’t turn away. I scrolled through the number of pictures that there were and when I was done, I thought there would be more. It was a gorgeous wedding with a beautiful bride and groom and oh ya – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed the bride’s dress!

If you were wondering whether or not the designer twins were making house calls on customized gowns, think again. The bride – Molly – is a longtime friend of theirs so when she became engaged, they were more than a little excited to be creating her dream wedding dress.

Five Favorite Pins: Beautiful Backdrops

Readers,

I’m currently working on planning a stellar end-of-summer party for my company so naturally my first source of inspiration was to go straight to Pinterest. Anyone that knows me knows that I love a good photo booth. When I was organizing events back in Seattle, I was a huge fan of the minimalistic photo booth that allowed people to just download their photos digitally. Props weren’t absolutely necessary. Pulling back a curtain was so old school. Plus, I was a huge fan of a great backdrop. As I search for the perfect photo booth for this event, I’ve come across several backdrops that I’ve just saved to my Pinterest boards that I can’t help, but look at again once more and wish I could recreate myself! If only I had all of the time in the world to DIY…

Kimye’s Wedding – The First Photos

So E! revealed the first photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s wedding today and yes, they were as gorgeous as you thought they were be. The very fashionable couple both wore Givenchy as they are pretty close friends with Riccardo Tisci. Kim wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown while Kanye opted for a custom Givenchy suit.

I know I haven’t seen very many photos, but I think I love the look of her third wedding even more than her second!

Now the big question is…will there or will there not be a televised wedding special on E! I really need to know.

Cardiknox Does Capitol Hill

We’re five sleeps away from Seattle and I’m already getting nostalgic. Last year we blogged about a band called Cardiknox currently in Brooklyn, but originally from Seattle – at least one half of them was from there anyways. They recently did a photo shoot with Free People back in my old stomping grounds of Capitol Hill and it’s basically…perfect. They hit up my favorite spots, walked my favorite streets, and looked exceptional while doing so. Here are some of my favorite snaps, but don’t take my word for it – you’ll have to check out the full spread on the Free People blog here. Above, the duo is at one of my favorite restaurants – Oddfellow’s – on the secret outdoor patio that is a dream!

The Most Endearing 4-year Old

I promised you cuteness this morning so here you have it! Kevin shared with me this post about an endearing 4-year old in Japan the other day who is photographed by her father in the most endearing series we’ve ever seen. I’m loving the photos that are being created out of this by father Nagano Toyokazu and his daughter Kanna. I hope my future child is just like this.

A Boy And His Rescue Dog

I’ve had this page starred for what feels like a couple of weeks now just waiting to post, but for some reason I never got around to actually doing it. Today’s posts are all about cuteness because I’ve got another one for you later on today that will make your heart melt even more along with this one. Zoey is a 7-year old rescue dog from Taiwan and her best friend Jasper is a pretty cute looking baby. Together, they make the perfect pair. The photos in this series were all taken by Jasper’s mom Grace Chon who is a commercial photographer in Los Angeles. I can’t get enough of these.

A Toy Plane and an iPhone

There are Instagram users that become insta-famous for their selfies. Then there are Instagram users like Varun Thota who challenge us to look at photographs in a different way. Using a toy plane and his iPhone, Varun takes his plane on a journey with every snap.

Macau-based web designer and developer Varun Thota is the son of a helicopter and a devoted flight enthusiast. His childhood was filled with hours in front flight simulators and even today he carries a small Kinder egg airplane that he likes to photograph against dramatic backgrounds, as if a hand was reaching out of the sky controling each flight. It’s a simple enough idea, but wonderfully executed by Thota. You can see more over on his Instagram account. (via the Instagram Blog)

Freida Pinto x Free People

Free People has done quite the job of selecting models for their catalogs ranging from Karlie Kloss to Girls’ actor Christopher Abbott. In their latest catalog, the brand is featuring Freida Pinto who is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. She wouldn’t be the first style icon I would think of to represent Free People, but she did well.
