We recently sent out two fashion albums to two of our recent brides. I had to share how beautiful they were with the world! (Fashion albums, for those not familiar with my lingo, are leather bound albums with thick archival matteboard pages and the photos are printed directly onto the page. Each album is custom designed by us for you, so the design reflects how amazing your wedding was.)
Thinking about boudoir as an anniversary or wedding present? I’m hosting individual shoots on Fridays all summer, and a special Boudoir day at the new Ciras Photography Studios on July 24 with a makeup artist and hair dresser. Only a few spots left, so reserve yours now!
I love this little moment for what it is, a tender expression of love. But I think I love it more because it’s also an expression of relief, and it shows that even on your wedding day – maybe especially on your stressful, busy, super-emotional wedding day – you quite literally begin your life together by leaning on each other.
Erin and Dustin had a gorgeous destination wedding to a resort in Jamaica. However, it was one of those resorts that require that you have their house photographer at your wedding. If your style is on the “untacky” side, these photos might not cut it for you. While their photographer was very very nice and never once got mad at me for doing my own thing, he also made Erin & Dustin do cheeseball things like this:
Erin & Dustin were good sports and joked around and laughed through the whole “photo shoot” with the staff photographer, but the little moment that I captured at the end – which the house photographer did not – is who they really are. And that’s what we aim for with wedding photography. Not super staged craziness, but a brief glimpse into your love and new life together.
Seriously, could these kids be any cuter?

Looking forward to Michele & AJ’s Royal Sonesta Hotel wedding in September!
I tried out a new collage with Matt and Nicki’s photos! This can be printed on a canvas or as a large print in case you can’t decide one just one photo to hang up!
It’s right after the ceremony. Your very closest friends, immediate family members, a big Hawaiian officiant, and Ciras Photography surround you. The photographers are snapping away, everyone’s hugging everyone, the Hawaiian officiant is talking with your mom about his wife. And all you see is each other.
That’s why I love this photo. On a wedding day, even in the midst of chaos, (even if it is just mild chaos, because Nick and Nicole’s wedding only had 22 attendees) you can block everyone else out.
We have lots of fabulous photos from this wedding (which you can see here and here) but this one holds a special place in my heart because it’s a real moment, unscripted, unplanned, and completely adorable.
