Yesterday was a dream come true for me. The hubby and I spent the whole day playing dress up and running around the island taking photos with our favorite photographer, Christie Pham. It was her idea to do a one-year anniversary photo shoot and since we always have so much fun with her and her husband, Matt, we jumped at the opportunity to hang out. We invited some friends and the 6 of us bounced around the island posing and doing frantic wardrobe changes in our cars. It was amazing!
I can’t wait to see Christie’s photos. She is so talented, I know they will be wonderful (hopefully in spite of the post-wedding weight gain for the hubs and I). She will be processing the photos in the next few weeks, but I wanted to show a little sneak preview in the meantime. All of the photos below were taken on my husband’s new iPhone 4. (We have some funny videos as well). BTW, the iPhone 4 is brilliant!
The top photo was taken on my poor iPhone 3GS with an app called “Shake It”. Christie told us about it and it’s great. The app simulates an old polaroid camera complete with the sound effects and wait time. The photo itself is of my little sewing area right on the coffee table. I was rushing to finish altering some of the outfits for the photo shoot right before we met. Glad I woke up at 6am on Sunday to get them done!
Here I am trying to blend into the wall. We were waiting for the actual shoot to take place – our friends were on the other side of the building, thankfully in nice contrasting colors. But, I am already thinking of outfits that will work here for future blog posts.
I was extremely excited to finally wear some of the vintage items that I inherited from the hubby’s grandmother. Among those was this polka dot, silk top (one of the alteration pieces from the morning) and the amazing mink fur coat.
I’ll save the ensemble details for later.
