Kate’s work speaks for itself, but we also love that her team offers a white glove approach to weddings, always bringing a second shooter, jumping in to lend an expert hand–even if that means stepping out from behind the camera. Kate and her team absolutely adore shooting couples that are taking a unique approach to their wedding, which, let’s be honest, is exactly GLW readers!

 

We like
our sponsors

We think you will too.

​Stylist Mallory Joyce tells us, “This bridal portrait session was inspired by the above words from William Butler Yeats’s “Cap and Bells” and the golden light of dusk that warms the Blue Ridge Mountains​ at end of day.” Very special thanks to her talents, her team, and photographer Elisa Bricker for sharing such beautiful images with us. For the word lovers among us, we’ll let Yeats take it away from here.

She laid them upon her bosom,
Under a cloud of her hair,
And her red lips sang them a love-song
Till stars grew out of the air.

She opened her door and her window,
And the heart and the soul came through,
To her right hand came the red one,
To her left hand came the blue.

They set up a noise like crickets,
A chattering wise and sweet,
And her hair was a folded flower
And the quiet of love in her feet.

– William Butler Yeats, “Cap and Bells”

Liz and Wayne’s engagement session was an excursion of sorts, as the couple went to their favorite spots throughout Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. Photographer Jen Huang captured the pair’s love of travel and adventure as they traipsed through the countryside! Can we just say, New Zealand is so dang beautiful!

How did you meet?

Wayne and I met through mutual friends. I found him cute and witty, making remarks that were odd, perceptive and funny at the same time. I found out that he had recently moved to Singapore and had a job that required him to work US based hours. Luckily for me, my schedule consisted mostly of night shifts at the hospital that I had dreaded up until then. We were soon sharing our stories nightly into the wee hours of the morning. By the time he surprised me by asking me out to a movie several months later, he knew my preferences and even favorite actors.

How did Wayne propose?

Wayne and I were engaged on the fourth night of our trip to the Maldives. He had planned an elaborate private beach dinner overlooking the sunset. Despite how obvious this may have appeared, I didn’t suspect anything because this was the type of over-the-top hoax Wayne indulged in occasionally. The fancy dinner came and went, and I didn’t notice much other than him being somewhat more fidgety than usual. Must have been the pre-snorkel caffeine drink, I thought. On the way back to the water villa, Wayne took my hand and insisted on taking a detour, having allegedly spotted “giant migrating manta rays.” Somewhat exhausted, I followed and headed towards a secluded beach area where an incredible wedding proposal formed by candles surrounded by tropical plants awaited me. Completely shocked, I turned and looked at Wayne, who had his left knee in the sand. He later told me he thought he had lost the ring during dinner.

Jess and Brent met through their work at Google! We’ll let the bride, Jess, tell you the rest of their story, and all about the engagement! We’re totally in love with the Carmel, California cliff overlook they chose to shoot their engagement with photographer, Jen Huang. LOVE.

From the bride, Jess:

Brent grew up in the small town in Pennsylvania and I was raised in the city of San Francisco. We were brought together through working at Google. We began as friends, and our love didn’t blossom until Brent left for business school across the country and we quickly realized how much we hated being apart! This resulted in many cross-country flights and Google Hangout sessions. Our love continued to grow as we introduced each other to new things. Brent taught me about the great outdoors, showing me how to fish and ski, and taking me camping and on whitewater rafting trips. I, on the other hand, introduced Brent to culinary adventures like uni, squid and oysters! Our mutual sense of curiosity and enthusiasm for trying new things strengthened our passion for life and each other. Brent proposed on a sunny day in December 2013 on a hike at one of our favorite trails near Palo Alto, California. We love hiking together because we always have deep, long chats about life, funny stories and the future. We had a great talk and took in the beautiful surroundings of the bay area. When we reached the peak, Brent got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

We decided to have our engagement shoot in Carmel, one of our favorite places to go and recharge. Jen was an amazing photographer and made us feel really comfortable. It was quite a physical shoot – we had to climb down hills, walk through fields of coastal succulents and run in the frigid ocean for some of the shots, but we had so much fun and we’re so thrilled to have these memories captured by Jen.
