Moodboard Monday: Timeless Romance!

I think we can all agree that love is timeless. It’s lasted throughout centuries, lives on through our hearts every day, and it will be here long after we’re gone.

What reminds you of the people you love?

Sometime it can be something extravagant or obvious, like flowers delivered at your work.

Today for this moodboard, we are going to celebrate the little details. The hidden treasures that love leaves behind to make you smile fondly from memories shared.

Setting a romantic mood starts with the lighting. Whether it’s a candlelit dinner or a dimmed out room, soft lighting always creates a touch of romance in the air.

Although, from a photographers perspective- bright natural lighting does plenty of love for our subjects!

Sparkle and Shine:

Although it’s no requirement of love to shower your partner with gifts, they are still aesthetically pleasing for this mood! Diamonds and Pearls, like one of our wedding packages, sparks a number of emotions for me.

My grandmother gave me my first string of real pearls to mark me becoming a woman (she was from Tennessee so southern traditions were a big deal). The love I hold for her is timeless and those pearls will be passed down to my daughter someday!

Diamonds remind most people of an engagement ring, but my ring is an opal. When I think of Diamonds, I think of the sparkle and shine of the lake when Eric took me out on our first date.

Eyes that sparkle after the first kiss can also be reflected in a diamond.

I love the symbolism of keys! I have two key tattoos on my arm that represent my trip to Spain and France. Keys are a big deal!

Everyone knows the cheesy phrasing “unlock the key to your heart”.

It holds so much meaning and comes with incredible risk to fully open up your heart. To let someone in, or “give them the key”, is an act of courage. Your defenses are down, you leave yourself vulnerable, and you risk locking your heart up forever if things go south.

But in love, you can’t think about the consequences- because the positives of love are so much more rewarding! Take the risk and open the door.

Love is very much a tradition in our culture but these shoes have a nostalgic notion all in themselves!

This bride wore the same shoes her grandmother wore to her wedding- over 60 years ago!

Traditions hold good luck and touching memories for generations to come.

Moodboard Monday: A Red Hot Summer!

Hey, everyone!

Tatiana here to introduce you to this exciting new blog series:


I love looking at moodboards with different aesthetics to brighten my day, refresh my mind, and inspire me!

What the heck’s a moodboard? Let me slap you with some definitions!

A “moodboard” isĀ an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc., intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.

Different images, colors, or phrases can all create one big MOOD.

And wouldn’t ya know it!? I happen to have a plethora of images to create moodboards to share with you lovely people. <3

This week’s theme is:


With the weather in July being at a record high average in the 100s, it’s been a SCORCHER! Right now, Summer reminds me of sunburns, gross bugs buzzing all around me, and sweat. Oh man … the sweat.

So, I’m going to change my mood around with this summer moodboard I created with the positive aspects of summertime whilst sipping on some nice cool water in the A/C.

I think the best part of Summer is the chance to travel! The most traveled months are generally in the summertime when the kiddos are out of school and you just want to get away.

I didn’t travel to Japan as the focal picture may imply, although that’s still very much #goals. I did, however, visit the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Francisco!

Now, you’re probably thinking, “wait, she went to San Francisco and she’s not featuring the Golden Gate Bridge” …


Oh, we went there too! The 40 MPH winds were also very present so just getting onto the bridge was a win for me. Artistic photos? Not happening when my camera is my livelihood and the wind could literally knock it out of my hands into the Pacific!

There’s also another reason for not adding this iconic shot to the board. The main color theme of this moodboard is reds with gold/green accents. As much as I would love to have added the staple tourist location of San Fran into this moodboard, the Golden Gate Bridge is super red but the main color scheme surrounding it is blue, which doesn’t go with the mood we’re trying to create! Sorry, GG. Maybe next time!

When we get booked for Summer weddings, we thank the heavens for indoor venues.

This board definitely needed a lounging flower girl to represent my inner couch potato this summer. I don’t even need to make it to a pool; the humidity has be drowning. Amirite?

Any season comes with their signature meals: Bar-b-ques for family cookouts, watermelon at the poolside, and that good ol’ American apple pie.

Of course, you can’t make an apple pie without fresh apples from the farmers market!

If you’re up for a little stroll on a weekend morning, go visit the River Market in KC for the regions largest farmers market. There’s also the Steamboat Arabia museum for when you need to move your adventure indoors as the temperatures rise.

Summer also marks bittersweet ends and new beginnings as our younger audience transitions from one grade to the next – or from a high school to a campus for our seniors!

No Summer moodboard would be complete without the feeling of accomplishment and freedom we remember as kids when the final bell rang.

The scene in “Grease” where they throw all their papers and books in the air is a BIG mood!

Just the opportunity to sleep in is something to be celebrated in itself!


So there you have it, folks! Our first moodboard. Let us know what you think!
