color block?

The incredibly talented Melanie of Melanie Mauer Photography in Lexington, Ky., posted this very useful guide to color coordinating. What an awesome idea she has to find your favorite artwork and use the colors from that! While you're checking it out, be sure to travel all around her site and look at some of the most beautiful wedding/engagement/children photography. Her site just oozes classic beauty. Enjoy!

awesome autumn

Happy fall!
I hope you are visiting Embellished after a beautiful day like we had today here in DC. Wow. Just gorgeous.

Between attending weddings --

getting to know my brand new (min-pin, pomeranian/poodle) puppy, Yoshi --

And going on a girls cruise with my bff's --

I have been quite busy! BUT I of course always make room for my fabulous clients! And how could I resist when people come to me with sweet requests like these thank you cards --

I also found this awesome tutorial from the fabulous Patrice over on and just had to redo it for myself. The site is incredibly fun with lots of really great ideas. And I mean who wouldn't want a little witch wreath for Halloween?! Love it:

I have a friend's family who is turning their gorgeous Smith Mountain Lake home into a bed & breakfast. It was fun to do a commercial brochure to mix things up a bit:

To leave you with a little preview of what's to come. So far it seems gold/yellow is a really popular color for spring weddings this year. I've been working on quite a few projects with this sunshiny color for the 2011 spring wedding season.

Talk soon!
