I can't express how amazing this shoot was to create! Melanie contacted me & told me that she wanted a fully styled family shoot with her husband Jim and their adorable daughter, Mahaila. I absolutely love designing photo shoots, especially one with Melanie's theme of Rustic glam! I was inspired by her daughter's black tutu and decided to make Melanie a similar black dress as well as a fun and flirty white skirt. How photogenic is this family!? Such an amazing day and they were all so much fun!

I appreciate Vivien's leap of faith and trusting me so much that we didn't actually meet until her wedding day! She and Chris live in Denver and decided to pick a sunny, destination wedding. We hit it off right away and had so much fun that morning & I love the classic and beautiful look that she chose! Congrats to an amazing couple!

Allyson is my amazing Portland bride who is a girl after my own heart! Not only was she a dream to work with, but I LOVED her style and out-of-the-box wedding! Her stunning flower crown was SO beautiful on her and her now husband Andy had some sweet style too! Photo: Melissa Biador Photogrpahy // Event Design & Coordination: W.E.D (weddings.events.design)
From the moment I met Michele I loved her fun spirit and I just knew her wedding was going to reflect that! As a fashion stylist I also loved and appreciated her idea of using separates for her bridesmaids dresses. They were so stunning and such a beautiful color! Everything about this wedding is incredible..the colors, the venue and the overall feel are lovely. Much love and best wishes to this wonderful couple! xo Hair & Makeup: Thorne Artistry // Coordination & Styling: Couture Events // Photography: Anjuli // Venue: Leo Carillo Ranch
One of my favorite local boutiques asked me to do makeup & hair for their summer fashion photo shoot! A gorgeous San Diego day with gorgeous girls modeling the latest fashion.

I was flattered to be asked by a wedding industry friend to do hair & makeup for her wedding. The talented Jenna from Flutterglass Photography made the most enchanting bride! She brought along some flowers and asked me to create a whimsical look on the day of her wedding. The woven braid with flowers suited Jenna perfectly and was a beautiful compliment to her garden-themed wedding. I love the romantic and ethereal feel that she chose! A beauty on the inside & out!
I was contacted by a local wedding planner to come up with several wardrobe/hair/makeup looks for this amazing Spanish-inspired bridal shoot that was held at The Darlington House in La Jolla. Whenever there is a challenge thrown my way I dive right in and love every moment of the creative process. There were 3 different looks that I wanted to capture in this photo shoot. All of the looks had a romantic, and innocent quality. Soft colors, lace, intricate details all felt timeless and elegant. It was such a great experience working with some of the best wedding vendors in San Diego and also having this photo shoot featured on one of my favorite wedding blogs, 100 Layer Cake. To see more of this shoot & the published feature you can check it out here!
The stunning wedding of Sarisa & Ryan was like something out of a fairytale! Sarisa had a classically romantic and magical feel from her dress to her venue (San Juan Capistrano). I loved how personal her day felt...her mom and family came from Hawaii to show support and she had one bridesmaid who wore a beautiful floral print dress that was a nod to her Hawaiian roots. This group couldn't have been nicer and more fun to spend the day with! Her mom even knitted me a scarf to say thanks! So lovely & thoughtful! Enjoy some gorgeous moments from their day captured by This Modern Romance Photography:)
This Mod-inspired fashion shoot was incredible! This photo shoot is a nod to the sophisticated side of the 1960’s. We found an amazing vintage Dior halter top at a thrift store that set the tone perfectly and as always we love working with Sandra Nicole Designs who have the best selection of jewelry and accessories to choose from! It didn’t hurt that our gorgeous model actually looks a lot like 1960’s icon, Twiggy!
