Wedding Photo Musts: Your Something Blue

There are many sentimental elements and moments in a wedding worthy of being photographed. In case you missed our previous posts on the subject, we have thus far discussed the grooms first look at his bride, the father of the bride’s first looks and the blindfolded kiss before the wedding. I love the something blue, because it is a traditional element of weddings that has lasted for quite some time. As I have said in the past, I love traditions in weddings {and in general}, because they tie the past, present and future together. In terms of clothing, it does not get more traditional or sentimental than the ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’. While the first three of theses are very personal and unique items for each bride, the last element is something every bride does similarly. If you are looking for creative ways to do your something blue, definitely check out this post on creative ways to do your something blue. Regardless of how you choose to do your something blue, make sure it has personal significance and be sure to get at least one photo wearing your something blue, so you can look back at it for the rest of your life. If you need some help in choosing just what your something blue should be or how you should have it photographed, check out some of the photos below for inspiration.

Awkward Halloween Photos

We have been talking about so many lovely things lately, so I felt that it was only appropriate to change subjects to something a little bit less lovely and a little bit funnier. Seeing that Halloween is only a few short weeks away, I think that we should turn gears toward that holiday. Rather than attempting to celebrate the scariness of the night with decorations {as we have done here and here}, with food {like this and this} or through costumes for kids or adults, I want to enjoy the things that go wrong that night through awkward Halloween photos.

If you have seen our other posts regarding awkward photos on various occasions such as weddings, engagement photos, Christmas, Easter and Halloween in the past {if not, check out the links below for a good laugh}, then you know just how much I value photos that are less than perfect. They make for the most memorable moments, because they are the photos that will be pulled out over and over by family throughout the years to undoubtedly bring back the best memories….even if they are not the best memories in your mind. These people clearly have some great photos {and I am sure stories to go with them as well} and I am so glad that they were kind enough to share them with the internet.

So, without further ado, I hope that these awkward Halloween photos get in the spirit of the upcoming holiday, and if you happen to have any gems like these of your own, consider sharing them with Awkward Family Photos….or just us :) Happy Halloween!

56 Comfy & Chic Autumn Outfits I’m Loving

Although it may not feel like autumn in Los Angeles right now {the temperature here was a blistering 99° yesterday}, but other parts of the country and world are fortunate enough to enjoy the season of autumn. The crisp, cool air and the leaves covering the ground in a beautiful yellow, orange and red collage – I am jealous of it all. It makes me want to turn up the AC to an uncomfortably cold temperature just so I can sip on some hot tea or cider and dress up in some of these fashions in preparation for the cooler “winter” months. Although I cannot wear these comfy autumn outfits at the moment, that does not stop me from loving them. It did not stop Lindsey last year, either. I hope you can make use of some of these autumn outfits for just them for some inspiration.

Plaid

A tried and true, perennial favorite of winter and autumn outfits is plaid. It is always classic {especially for scarves} and can be used for casual outfits as well as getting gussied up.

Leather

Although leather is seen in all seasons of the year, it starts to become quite prominent in the autumn. Then, leather jackets, skirts and more come out of the closet for chic and comfy style.

Denim Shirts

Denim is normally associated with warmth, which makes it fitting as shirt material for colder weather. It is perfect for a casual outfit and although it is a normal piece of clothing, it is not as common as other tops.

Shorts {and Rompers}

Although autumn is traditionally a time for warm clothing and accessories, shorts are still functional and stylish, especially with a pair of tights.

Dresses and Skirts

The same goes for dresses and skirts. I love seeing beautiful dresses and skirts of all lengths in fall fashion, especially with tights or leggings. No woman should be confined to pants for the autumn and winter. With some creativity, you will be able to get a unique look and be warm at the same time.

Floral Designs

Floral designs are usually associated with the spring and summer, but I have been seeing floral shirts, skirts and scarves in many autumn outfits and I love it. Autumn outfits have a tendency to be full of muted and natural colors, something too much so, and I love the design and color accents that floral patterns are bringing.

Other Comfiness

Above all, do not underestimate the other power of comfiness in your autumn outfits. It will add to your style and enjoyment of the clothing throughout the season. Whether that comfiness comes from oversized sweaters, leggings, leg warmers, chunky scarves, a long cardigan or big boots, what is comfy and cozy is best.

Wedding Photo Musts: The Blindfolded Kiss

We are back discussing sentimental wedding moments. If you missed our previous posts, check out the grooms first look at his bride, the father and bride first looks. Today we are moving onto cute trend that I love. If you have not yet noticed, there is a pretty neat trend that is popular at the moment where the bride and groom come together for a private meeting before the wedding where they can meet. This may sound like it may be breaking with tradition, but it can be done in a several ways where tradition can still be observed. Sometimes the bride and groom meet behind the door so as not to break tradition {we will discuss this next time}. Other times, the groom may wear a blindfold in order to observe tradition. This way, the couple may meet to calm each other’s nerves, say a prayer or share a kiss as they prepare to stand up together in front of their friends and family. One of the sweetest photos you can snap of any wedding is this moment between the bride and the groom. Here are some beautiful photos of the bride and groom blindfolded kiss to give you some inspiration for your own wedding.

Hope you enjoyed this and got a few ideas of your own. Come back to see more wedding photo musts and other wedding ideas!

Wedding Photo Musts: Father and Bride

Last week, I discussed the grooms first look at his bride. We cannot overlook the sweet moment of the father of the bride’s first look at his daughter bride. It is just as tender as the groom first laying eyes upon his bride. These two men are both the main men in the bride’s life and their love is equally important – especially on the day where the bride traditionally leaves her parents and joins with her husband. It is always so sweet to see a father look at his adult daughter as if she were his little girl and that love permeates into photography. So, while the bride is getting ready behind the scenes to meet her groom at the altar, do not miss out on snapping some paternal photos of the bride with the first man of her life as she prepares to begin a life with her husband. To give you some inspiration for what you can look for, check out these photos.
