This session was so fun to style and photograph. Vintage keys, burlap, cupcakes, paper hearts and mason jars were the elements I decided to use and mostly because they’re just some of my personal favorite things. I loved using my crafty side creating the set for this styled wedding shoot and we picked up some cupcakes from a local shop here in Valencia called Velvet Cupcakes. I scoped out a few locations and found a perfect little area near our home in Valencia for the shoot. Courtney & Kevin were perfect for the shoot and I love how the session turned out! This session also was featured on the Wed Loft blog and you can check out the post here.
Here is Nadia Cakes on TLC‘s show Fabulous Cakes!! So excited for Abby and her team!! They will actually be on the show again soon as they bake a fabulous fall themed wedding cake. If you not able to read my earlier post you can read it and see all the pictures from the big reveal by clicking here. At the beginning of the show the drawing of the cake fades into one of the photo’s I took and later they show another picture I took of a luggage cake that the Nadia Cakes team made. It was so exciting for me to see my pictures on TV!! The film crew forgot to list me as a photographer and apologized to me in an email. Stinks, but hey I knew they were my photos and that’s all that counts right? Had a fun time shooting the big reveal and am happy for Abby and her team at Nadia Cakes for being chosen to be on the show.
Saturday Eric and I loaded up and went to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds to set up my booth for the Antelope Valley Bridal Show. I wasn’t sure how I would like but I decided to give it a try and I’m certainly glad I did. Despite the long hours of preparation and skipping a few meals in the rush of things I had a great experience and really enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by my booth. As a new business in the AV it was nice to meet other vendors from the area and I look forward to keeping in touch with them in the months ahead. Below are a few photos from our fun day!

Although all I had to eat that day was half of my peanut butter mood from Jamba Juice I sure am enjoying the leftover Ghirardelli Cholates 🙂
My husband (Eric Hayes) and hard working graphic designer made my business cards and accordion fold brochures which I loved! Thanks hun!
The contents on the rest of this page are going to make you drool! Just across the way from us was a booth with some absolutely stunning cakes! I thought that I recognized one of the ladies at the booth and kept telling my husband “I think I know that lady at the awesome cake booth.” I finally got the guts up to go over and say hi and it turns out that I went to a baby shower at her home a few years ago. Her shop is called Nadia Cakes and she’s simply amazing at what she does. Here’s a little article on Nadia Cakes in the Antelope Valley News http://bit.ly/782U8G.
My favorite one!
