Fashion Friday | San Jose Bay Area Photographer

Bridal season is happening all around us!! There are so many different options you can do for your bridal session. Many brides tend to stick with white, and while that is great, there’s nothing wrong with adding a bit of color if that is more your style.

The blues in this picture are beautiful and say “Bridal” just as well as white.

 

Say I Do In Blue

 

You can personalize your session even more by bringing in your bridal jewelry, shoes and veil.  You may even choose something for your session that is comfortable enough to wear under your dress on your big day.

Many brides choose to give their Groom an album as his gift before the wedding. Just think of the twinkle in his eye as you are walking down the aisle to him, and the even bigger twinkle in his eye later that night when you show him what is under your dress.

What are you waiting for? Contact us today to book your beautiful bridal session!

Happy Tushy Tuesday!

Did you know that you don’t have to do your shoot in our studio? Some clients request a hotel or even in their own home. Sometimes it’s a location with sentimental meaning like a luxury hotel suit where they spent their first anniversary. The possibilities are endless!

Is there a fee to do an on location shoot?

Maybe. I don’t charge for travel if you are in the San Jose bay area. But I do if it’s over 30 miles away. Hotels are at the clients expense. Otherwise, I treat it the same as a studio session.

This session was done at a local luxury hotel. It was a fantastic location and I loved having different furniture to work with!

Fashion Friday | Santa Clara Bay Area Photographer

It’s Friday! It has been so hot this week. And worse than just hot, humid. When it’s this hot and muggy you don’t really feel like wearing clothes, so what’s the best choice? A maxi dress! There are so many cute options. Every store you go into has some nice choices. Locally I’ve found many cute ones at Old Navy, Ross and Kohl’s.

I love this one! The colors and the pattern are beautiful.

I’m a sucker for anything with black and white, and this would look great in my closet ;)

This is another favorite that I came across.

 

Maxi Dress

 

 What I really like about maxi dresses is how versatile they are. You can transition them from a day to night look very easily. Throw on a jean jacket or a blazer for the office, some cute strappy sandals or heels, and don’t forget some gorgeous statement jewelry.

Confessions of a Boudoir Photographer | San Jose Bay Area Photographer

Juicing healthy veggies san jose

Gah! Why does being “healthy” have to be so time consuming?

You know what makes me feel better than a coffee in the afternoon… and I mean immediately feel better not that high and low? Fresh juice: as in 2 carrots, one apple, a little bit of kale, cucumber and a handful of spinach.

Instant energy boost and in a good way. But hell if that isn’t messy and time consuming. Popping a k-cup in the coffee maker, a splash of Baily’s creamer(non-alcoholic… most days)and whip cream is so much easier and let’s face it, ummm tasty.

Damn you evil conveniences!

Alas, I know which makes me feel better, truly better, so let’s just hope I can fight the convenience voices in my head and stick with the change this time. Pretty sure juicing three times a year isn’t quite cutting it. Neither is throwing away veggies because I never got around to actually juice them. And did I mention the cringing at how much I spent on that space consuming, dust collector that should be used for making me fresh juice?

Three times a week. That is my new goal.

Let’s do this!

P.S. Yes, I actually like the taste of these juices. Hahaha

Makeup Monday | Santa Clara Bay Area Photographer

Hello Dolls!!!! Mari here with an awesome and exciting makeup review.

Who doesn’t love finding great new makeup products with amazing color pay off at amazing price points??! Not many people know about this brand yet and I DON’T KNOW WHY!!!!?? It’s called Colour Pop, and all items are only $5.00. Yes, I said $5.00!!!!!! We know being here in Cali, especially Bay Area, we can definitely appreciate a good deal since everything is buku expensive here lol.

I have used lippies and eye shadows so far.
Let me start by saying the shadows are a creme to powder formula which is so easy to apply a light wash of color with a soft brush or pack on the pigment with your finger tip or a firm, flat brush. I definitely added some of these to my makeup artist kit! I highly suggest you wear an eye shadow primer for a longer wear (8-10 hrs), with out primer I did notice some fade out and some light creasing (4-5 hrs).

Lippies is what they call their chubby lip pencil. :) So cute!! These lippies take the  place of lipsticks in beautiful satin and matte finishes with a great wearability. Touch ups on lips for me was about 3-4 hrs apart. Not bad right??!

Lippies by Color Pop

Take some time to check out their site and see the beautiful summer collection they have!

Ok I’m off to shop!!!! :)~ Stay beautiful Dolls! ~ Mari with Dolled Up Services
