Today's Bride 2017 Cover
HILARY TENZING // HUES OF BLUES

I got to photograph in the most stunning of spaces in the newly design Claremont Hotel and have it published on the Cover of Today's Bride Magazine!

A Note from Wedding Designer & Stylist, Cindy Danbom of Bella Notte Events
There are times as a stylist when the stars align and you are granted all of your wishes for a styled shoot. This is one of those dreams. The Claremont Hotel, now owned by the Fairmont Group, has recently undergone an extensive, stunning remodel. Nestled in the Berkeley Hills, like a beacon of the East Bay, the Claremont Hotel offers jaw dropping views of the bay and San Francisco skyline. The vibe is immediate, and elegant.

Our sexy couple first met over martinis in the South of France. Both in town for the Cannes film festival and crossing paths, he was definitely shaken and stirred! The Hilary-Tenzing room is a most stunning shade of blue, rich but not overwhelming. The design of the space has a very sleek, strong masculine feel, think James Bond. The only thing that can best 007 is a strong sexy woman.

Our amazing leading lady wears an effervescent floating taupe gown by Tara LaTour, who makes stunning wedding couture for the cool kids. The woven bodice includes braided straps, and the softest, airy skirt you can imagine. She is strong and sexy, while the same time being feminine and delicate. A sultry, smoky eye is topped with a sparkling headpiece by Marie Elena. Everywhere she goes she can't help but be noticed.

There isn't anything more appealing about a man than confidence. Our groom, clean-shaven, sporting a well tailored Hugo Boss slim fitting suit, is relaxed and ready to welcome guests with a signature martini.

The long sleek black table welcomes guests with lush jewel toned florals, delicately balanced in pedestal mercury glass vases. Mixing metallics with pewter napkins from La Tavola, brass candlesticks, and gold flatware makes for a most refined presentation.

The coup de grĂ¢ce of our shoot is the stunning 4 tiered cake. A playful mix of shapes and textures capturing both the hottest styles, with marbling and watercolor strokes in gold, we couldn't have asked for a more glamorous ending.

Personal Branding Shoot
with Girlboss Marrin Costello

Last year I dove myself into Sophia Amoruso's incredible book 'Girlboss' and when I mean dove, I mean, plugged my headphones in and listened to the Audible version from Amazon :) I've never been much into reading, I find my mind wanders too much and I just end up frustrated after ready 15 pages and having no idea what just happened. Plus, it's rare that I have quite alone time (or the patience) to sit and read. So, after making fun of my bestie Maria for always having some strange man speaking to her through the speakers when I jump in the car to head to a shoot, I finally gave Audible a try. Although as of right now, I've only listened to female authors lol I just can't seem to be engaged with male voices haha! sorry dudes. lol I have to say that after discovering Audible and books on tape, I feel so much smarter and informed and it's quite entertaining with the right books. Anyway, after 'reading' this '#Girlboss' I've been nothing but inspired by the way Sophia has single handedly influenced so many women to take charge of their lives and thrive! I wont give out too many details, but EVERY woman - and men you can ready it to - to read this book. like asap. Now, I'm obessed with Girlbosses everywhere! and.. Sophia has a podcast @Girlbossradio you should go check out!

Which leads me to my leading lady of today's blog post, Marrin Costello. When I first met with Marrin, I was so inspired by her drive and fire and talent (obvi) that all I kept thinking was what a little bad ass this chick is! I couldn't help but dream up ways to show off this sassy GirlBoss and her business. With her jewelry line getting tons of buzz lately, she needed some current images reflecting her brand, style & new do (she had recently cut off about 12 inches and went blonde!!). I got to team up with one of my makeup artist favs - Camille Goldston to rock this chick out and my sweet friends at Asiel Design were kind enough to share their killer warehouse with us to shoot in! It was an absolute honor to photograph you girl! I can't wait for the next time and #dontforgettoaccessorize !

CATHEDRALS


PHOTOGRAPHY // Jennifer Skog + Shannon Paras

HAIR + MAKEUP // Lindsay Skog

BAND // Cathedrals


The San Francisco duo Cathedrals, musician Johnny Hwin and songstress Brodie Jenkins has taken the music world by storm with their unique blend of electro-pop beats and the glorious sound of Brodie's vocals. They have no intention of limiting themselves to a certain genre; which is what made this shoot kick ass. With every single they release having their own sound and vibe, we were able to create a collection of different moods and visions all in a day's work. It's not every day that you get to be surrounded by such talent; listening to Johnny serenade us in the raw, it's cool. Real Cool. Nothing better than live music. I wish we could show more, but we still have more singles to come out! So hold tight, there is more amazingness to come from this duo and our shoot :)

Listen to their first two tracks C A T H E D R A L S : Unbound & C A T H E D R A L S : HARLEM

Donatella

Sometimes you just got to shoot something for yourself. This beauty is the younger sister of one of my favorite brides. After the wedding Maria and I were just itching to photograph this aspiring model! We brought on one of our favorite gals, Tanja Lippert to style and had a killer day with Donatella and her mom Simone. We raided Tanja's huge collection of vintage goodies, came up with the color story and mood, mixed in a few favs from Donatella including her sweet floral jacket from Element, new adidas kicks, and beats by Dre headphones.
