Mr. & Mrs.Muffin


My friend and Hawaii Wedding Photographer Rachel Robertson got married this past weekend. It was an amazing wedding to say the least. At the end we all made an aisle for them to walk down and raised out sparklers to make it extra special!! If you want to catch more details from the event you can view the same day edit by the fabulous team at Aria Studios here The event was coordinated by Aubrey Akana at Savoir Faire events… Aka crazy creative wedding planning genius!!

Sweet Serenade Idea

I am a hopeless romantic. That being said, I am always imagining wedding ideas that are authentic displays of affection. I love the song “Better Man” by James Morrison, and I think it would be the perfect way for a groom to surprise his bride with a serenade (if he has the gift of being musically talented)! Check out the video on you tube here. Guys, if you do this you will knock it out of the park. Just sayin’. Oh, and ladies grab a tissue… This song is a tear jerker.


Faux Pashmina

It can get a bit chilly in Hawaii at night, especially if you are in the mountains or seaside. I think getting your family/bridesmaids one of these synthetic pashmina would be a great idea. Personally I’d get them monogrammed for the recipient. Such a steal at under $20. You could also pick one up for yourself as your something blue!


Favorite New Mascara

What it is:
A mascara that plumps lashes inside and out.

What it does:
Diorshow Extase provides built-in treatment benefits and high-impact lashes in a single stroke! The spherical-shaped Black Pearl Pigments create a 3D volume effect and the exclusive Metamorphosis Powders expand in size by up to 50% after application. Also, SR38 Patented Ceramid brings additional care, reconstructing damaged lashes and promoting stronger- and fuller-looking lashes.

What else you need to know:
The Extase mascara features a Tiered Brush inspired by the tiered couture dresses created by the House of Dior. The brush is designed for performance and contains an Exclusive Duo of Fibers: The Black Elastomer Fibers brush out and define the lashes for panoramic fringe and the Gold Nylon Fibers hold and deposit formula, generously coating each lash for outstanding volume.

Chanel Gets Colorful!

I love seeing a company that most would consider “classic” and “timeless” experiment with fresh, colorful looks as well. As an artist I love to try out new styles and get inspired by fashion. Not to say that all of it is “for me” but it is so lovely to see creativity come to life through clothes. Check this out!!


Perfect Flowergirl Gift

photo_2_5_5_1The last post featured a Hawaii based lifestyle brand for women’s wear, and today I wanted to feature another local lifestyle brand. Life Is Swell has tops and hoodies for people of all ages, but I think it would be especially cute to get this tank for a flowergirl. The onesies are absolutely ADORABLE as well!


I am constantly working with a variety of photographers, and from a professional standpoint I see a huge range in talent. Let me preface this whole post by saying, I don’t think a little color enhancing or Photoshop is bad all together… it’s just EXTREMELY overused, and sadly clients often get tricked into thinking this is photography skill. It’s NOT! In my opinion a good photographer will take photos that are timeless. I’m not saying that each photographer won’t have a particular style or bend per se.. and that’s great! I suggest you do your research and then choose wisely… When in doubt about a choice for your wedding I always encourage clients to ask themselves “will I think this (hairstyle, dress, photography style etc.) is beautiful 10 years from now?” Just my .02  🙂 Here is a funny but true post below about the topic. Enjoy, and remember the photos will last forever!! For a list of fantastic photographers I think make the cut check out my vendor listing resource page.
