This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot a fun and spunky event planner. We were lucky to have booked her promotional shoot on the most gorgeous day of the year. Meet Brittany Allen; she understands how essential it is to market and promote herself and her business. She told me ‘A true professional invests in their own brand first’. I truly respect that!

So, let me tell you a little more about our Brittany. I’ve worked with her many times before; it seems as if her client list is endless. She ALWAYS has an event approaching and guess who she calls for pictures??! I must admit I can’t keep up with her schedule!

From weddings, parties, dinners to showers, Brittany has become the ‘go to’ planner in such a short period of time. About 2 years ago she interned at a premiere event planning agency which led to her starting her own event planning business! I just love entrepreneurs, can you tell?

Her business is called Beautiful Beyond Dreams, LLC. She currently serves the NY, NJ, PA & DE areas.

New Trend Alert! Post wedding photos, all the rage!

Anything goes nowadays; nothing is too weird, odd, strange, or taboo. That being said, when I was booked to shoot a bride AFTER her wedding, I was excited! I thought to myself, “How smart is that”...we all know weddings are super stressful and great bridal images are sometimes a challenge to capture mainly due to time constraints.

So, Bernai Brown-Holman thought it’d be an awesome idea if she booked a shoot where she dressed as if it was her wedding day all over again! Hair, makeup, the works!!!! FUN FUN FUN! There was NO stress, NO time constraints, or guests; it was just us gals recreating the most beautiful day of her life.  We headed to downtown Haddonfield which is a ritzy town in South Jersey; some may even say ‘old money’.  We came across a GORGEOUS cathedral, it’s downright breathtaking. Needless to say, we set up shop and created magic. A combination of a perfect location and a purtty bride; you can’t go wrong : )

I have a love affair with this wooden door. GASP!
