Sneak Peek – Doug & Brittany’s Heartfelt Kelley Farm Wedding

“I hardly recognize myself.” After a few moments of silence and a few rapid blinks to contain the tears, these were the first words Brittany was able to utter while wearing her gorgeous dress, holding her beautiful flowers, and seeing herself in the mirror for the first time as the truly stunning bride that she […]

Oh my stars. Alyssa, these are absolutely breathtaking! What a beautiful wedding…and you so artfully captured so many precious moments and joy-filled faces. If only Seattle and Orlando weren’t so far…I’d hire you to do a fun photo sesh with Mark and me for our 5th year wedding anniversary this summer…. ;-)

These pictures are amazing! I’m loving the colors she picked!


Sneak Peek – Shelby + Aaron’s Seattle Engagement Session

Hot damn, it’s been a crazy month, but I am soo excited to take a break from all the hustle n’ bustle to share a quick sneak peek of this adorable engagement session! I first met Shelby back in March over a lovely cup of coffee, where I was instantly drawn to her bubbly personality […]

Oh my goodness, these photos are stunning, Alyssa! What a gorgeous couple and their love is so palpable through these photos. I love the different settings you used…and that shot with the football and great depth of field (I think that’s the proper term) is uh-ma-zing. Congrats to you, Shelby and Aaron!

Alyssa @ Barnwood + Brick05/15/2014 - 1:06 pm

Awww, thank you Lauren! That really means a lot to me. :) And yes, depth-of-field is totally the proper term, ha! Hope you are doing well!

Kelsey05/19/2014 - 1:08 am

Oh my gosh! These photos are stunning! I love the wheel one!

Me + Casady + Camera = a ‘Homefish Knits’ Inspired Photography Session

Friends, I have finally emerged from the black hole that has been work + vacations and I’m back in the blog-post game. On that note, where the heck have the past two weeks gone?! They say nothing is certain in life but death and taxes, but I’d like to add “time disappearing faster than George […]

amazing shots!!

Lauren @ The Thinking Closet04/08/2014 - 11:27 pm

Oh my gosh, girl…you had me cracking up on this line: “…time disappearing faster than George Clooney from a monogamous relationship.” Yup. That’s definitely certain! And so unfortunate. ;-)

Also, could you and Casady be any cuter? I think not. I LOVE the photo shoot! You do such a great job capturing the textures and colors of her gorgeous creations. Brava!

Sunshine, Sunnies + Seattle

Old friends are the best. And I’m not talking about ‘old’ as in age. ; ) There is something so pleasant about welcoming a guest into your home who you don’t have to try to impress. Someone who openly and willingly accepts both how you are and who you are; somehow who doesn’t require constant […]

Alyssa, you’re such a gifted writer. Your posts just flow so…easily. And I feel like I’m right there with you, Audrey, and the streaming sun.

I know exactly the kind of friends you speak of…the kind you don’t need to constantly “entertain.” It’s such a balm for the soul to spend quality time with them. So glad you got that gift this past weekend!

Also, those shades are rockin’! Love the fade from dark to light (I’m sure there’s a fancy term for that…but I’m spacing on it right now, ha ha). Have a happy Tuesday, friend!

Alyssa @ Barnwood + Brick03/25/2014 - 12:32 pm

Oh my goodness, Lauren, thank you for the kind words. They really mean so much, coming from someone as talented as you!! So glad we have been able to connect and get to know each other over the past few weeks!

5 Ways to Score the Best Deals at Clothing Boutiques

Happy first day of Spring!!! You can imagine my disappointment when I woke up this morning and realized that, despite the changing of the season, I still didn’t live in a climate with 70+ degree weather and perpetually clear blue skies. **le sigh**. But that sure didn’t stop me from throwing on this fun little […]

Ask if they have any coupons out. I work at a little boutique and we have a coupon we put out in neighboring magazines! It’s always worth it to check! ;) LOVE your outfit by the way.

AlyssaEnnis03/21/2014 - 5:17 pm

Oooh, such a smart idea, Alexa! Love having inside scoop from someone who actually works at a boutique ;) . Seattle has some local magazines that I’ll definitely be looking into for this!

Jyotsna Shankar03/24/2014 - 2:44 pm
