Wedding Trends

Planning a wedding?

As a wedding or portrait photographer I am always looking for inspiration through my peers, locations, and articles. I found this one this morning on trends. This is so applicable to a wedding coordinator, bride, photographers, actually anyone in the business. It can also be for other specialties such as senior photography.

Some of the trends are creating “insta=worthy” photos. Instagram is a HOT social trend. We are seeing this in Eureka that many young couples are opting for a venue other than a church. But an all in one venue, ceremony, food, drinks, etc. Staging different areas to add more variety will be important.

According to, 23 per cent more couples - compared with five years ago - are choosing to extend the celebrations into a two or three day experience.

They want post-wedding brunches - did somebody say avocado and smoked salmon? - and pre-wedding pamper parties/meet and greets, so look for a venue that has options on offer to make your wedding a ‘mini break’.

He was from Canada and she is from the U.S. We wanted to incorporate this on their very special day. Tthe biggest take away is make it your own, and if you are in the service industry, think about how you can do this for your clients. Enjoy the article.


These boots are made for walking

It’s officially here, 2019 in all it’s glory. The resolutions are flying, gym memberships going up, and new fashion trends are starting. As a photographer I watch for new trends in fashion, color and of course photography. I went to get my hair done and a young college student who is studying fashion merchandising in NYC was working for the holiday break. She had on the CUTEST boots ever. WHITE BOOTS! I swear I have loved white go-go boots as I called them since the 60’s so I am for one excited to see them comeback. Well I love boots! My favorite go to are a pair of Dr. Martens with red roses embroidered on them. I have cowboy boots, tall brown boots, fun rain boots, well too many boots. Wait, did I say too many? Nah…..never!

Today’s trends are not your grandma’s go-go boots, they are showing them in many styles. And do you know what? I want a pair! Yep, I turn 60 this year and I am getting those damn go-go boots. Ok, more like booties for comfort that I can wear while shooting and yet be fun and fashionable.

I can see these boots on brides for a western or bohemian styled wedding, or seniors dressing in the latest trends.

What about you? Are you into the white boots trend? Post below if you have a pair, I want to see them or just share what you think about them.

A beautiful ceremony.

Allow me to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Baker of Springfield, MO. This lovely couple decided on romantic Eureka Springs for their wedding destination. They are a fun couple, Samantha a bit more reserved and Mikel a funny outgoing individual. Together they balance eachother and the love they showed during this celebration was undeniable!
