Engagement photos


I shot some engagement photos 2 weeks ago. The couple, Louise and Brian, are from the San Francisco bay area. We had a very narrow window to shoot because of schedule conflicts. The Sunday we shot on was overcast but it turned out to work in our favor a bit. Since Louise and Brian wanted to shoot in Central Park, the "bad" weather meant not a lot of people were in the park and it was generally easier to get shots without other people in the background.

Salvage Profile: Dresses from Puerto Rico

Today we are featuring Jana.

What is your personal style?
I would define my personal style as being laid-back, feminine, with an edge...being from a tropical island in the Caribbean inspires me and defines my relaxed style, yet being a city-girl as well as the different music i listen to definitely adds a little edge to it all...

What is your favorite piece?
My favorite piece out of the shoot we did would have to be the white dress, because i love its simplicity and its color. it can be dressed down, or dressed up and goes with any shoe or accessories.

What is your personal style?
I like things that are comfortable - I wear a lot of silk.

What is your favorite piece?
Although it changes, my favorite piece right now is my beaded silk tie-dye Joie tank. I wear it going out, to work and when I’m just hanging out - it goes with everything! And my watch, I usually wear my watch - my wrist feels naked without it.
