Let it Flow | Rockin’ the Long Bridal Veil

By, February 18, 2016

Debating whether to rock a long veil on your wedding day? For modern brides, a veil is now an optional embellishment, and a matter of personal preference. However, the wearing of a veil is a longstanding bridal custom, dating back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans. After seeing the photos below, you may be inspired to honor this practice, or to put your own spin on it.

As photographers, we are in favor of brides keeping this tradition strong! Veils are accessories that we can play with, and use to take images to new heights. The daintiness and sheerness of veils add texture to wedding photos, and help us to create dramatic and romantic compositions.

Out of the many different veil lengths available, today we are spotlighting chapel and cathedral veils. A chapel veil reaches the ground, while a cathedral veil extends even further, and spreads out beautifully behind the bride. The dramatic length of these particular veils allows us to create striking portraits that would otherwise not have the same effect. What bride wouldn’t want to channel her inner model and totally rock a “veil in the wind” shot?

Check out our collection of long veil portraits and prepare to be “blown away” ;)

Glamorous Hairstyles | Stunning Bridal Hair Photos

By, May 21, 2014

Once you find the perfect wedding dress, it’s time to choose a hairstyle to go along with it! While some brides feel more comfortable with their hair similar to their natural look, others see the wedding as an opportunity to try something completely different, daring, and glamorous. We work with a number of gifted hair designers who transform beautiful everyday styles into sweeping up-dos, shimmering waves, and bouncy curls. And for a dramatic touch, many brides add flowers, jewelry or a veil to complete the look, and to make a statement! If you would like inspiration, and lots of styles to check out, have a look at these stunningly coiffed brides!

Valerie Vonprisk Makeup Artista | A Natural Beauty at The Marine Room

By, April 25, 2013

Julia and David held an intimate beachside wedding at The Marine Room in La Jolla. It was my pleasure to do makeup for Julia and her beautiful mother on Julia’s wedding day.


Julia is naturally gorgeous, and she has a positive light that shines from within. I wanted to keep her looking like herself, and to bring out her glow!


I made sure Julia’s brows looked symmetrical, and evened out her skin tone while keeping the eyeshadow soft and neutral.


I lined Julia’s lips with a nude lip pencil, and filled in the lip with a rose colored lipstick and gloss.


I also highlighted the high planes of her face with some of my favorite products, and brought some lotion to accentuate her athletic arms.


I brought the sexy factor up with a clean (waterproof) black line on Julia’s upper lash line. Natural false lashes made sure David would be swept away by Julia’s gaze all night.


Along with their guests, Julia and David enjoyed a gorgeous evening, which included incredible cuisine and genuine love.
