brooke + hunter | engaged

To say that I'm really looking forward to shooting Brooke and Hunter's wedding this summer would be a small understatement. Why?

Because gorgeous day + plus gorgeous couple = well, see for yourself...

A long time ago I took some product shots for a lovely gal named Sami. She's a friend-of-a-friend and I did family photos for her a while ago. While we were doing the family session, Sami showed me some of her beautiful, hand-made jewellery and asked me for a few tips on how to take great photos of her work to post on her Etsy shop. One thing led to another and I ended up taking some photos for her, but completely forgot, until now, to post them here on my blog (I don't think I'd even really started this blog when I did the photos). So, they're a little bit late, but still worth showing off. Doesn't Sami do a wonderful job with her jewellery?

My favourite piece is the one that Sami custom made for me according to my exact specifications. My daughter, Csilla, loves the colour purple, so I asked Sami to make a clustered pendant of all purple stones. Check out the first shot below to see what Sami created from my request. Gorgeous, eh?

And the best part was that Sami made an identical, mini-me version of it for Csilla. She was beyond thrilled.

Anyway, as I'm typing this I was thinking about my brides who might be looking for the perfect piece of custom made jewellery for their wedding. I love Etsy and everything that hand-made work represents, so if you're a bride and need the perfect piece of jewellery for yourself or your bridesmaids, perhaps check out Sami's shop. And since she's in Vancouver you could even save on shipping!
