Thinking about getting married? Then you may have thought about the mile-long-list of things that need to be accomplished before the “big-day”. From the venue, to the dress, cake and flowers- something that should NEVER be overlooked is your MEDIA coverage.
.
When booking Vintage Roots for your big-day, you are getting TWO of the raddest peeps around, to RELAY ON & TRUST for EVERY need (aside from just your media coverage). Often- we are planners, time keepers, dress fixers, hair and makeup artists, bathroom buddies (that dress ain’t going to hold itself up!) & SO much more! We are there through all the blood sweat and tears. We are who help you navigate these uncharted waters, settle the butterflies & make your day as special & memorable as you are.
.
Don’t settle for anything less.
This day only comes once in a lifetime 😉.
.
NOW BOOKING 2019 & 2020 wedding events (elopements, local & destination).
We offer THREE budget friendly packages as well as customized options. 2019 & 2020 brides also get the option to book us for BOTH photos AND video services! Our bridal video clips are coming soon (to Instagram and Facebook). Don’t miss the magic ✨

WHO COULD HAVE KNOWN?!
————
But seriously- who the heck could have guessed that THIS gal up here 👆🏻 YEAH, me- would have ever found herself livin it up over here on the west coast? 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
NOT ME 🙋🏻‍♀️
I was born (& mostly raised) on New England’s coastline, from a SUPER small town in Massachusetts- like the kind of small where everyone knows everyone; sort of like Bakersfield (but even smaller if you can imagine that).
.
Not many people ever leave the town I’m from- again a LOT like Bako. So when my family moved us all over the country (& even out of it), we were considered “outsiders”.
.
I never made close relationships, and from that I developed a strong back bone combined with an even stronger sense of independence.
When my family made their final move to Florida (in 2006, the summer before I started high school), I was a TOTAL introvert.
.
I had a real FEAR of ever getting to know anyone, because it seemed every time I had before- we moved.
.
As much as I LOVE traveling, I didn’t “love” starting over again and again. I didn’t “love” that the only roots I knew; were on the road. That was; until I got older and learned to embrace my path. Traveling forced me to adapt to change, to expect the unexpected & to appreciate culture.
It made me WHO I am today.
.
I may not have had a “conventual/ traditional or “normal” upbringing (as in most kids don’t attend over 7 different schools before age 15/ or travel to 35/50 US States & see most of Europe before age of 12). But hey, I couldn’t have wished for a better childhood!
.
My life experience is how I developed my NAME “Vintage Roots”.
“Vintage”, because I come from a long line of nomadic ancestors & traveling is literally IN my blood.
Then “Roots” because this is our journey, my past & my sons future.
.
We may NOT have it all “figured out”; but TOGETHER we have it ALL.

“You were an unexpected surprise, the defining moment. The collision of stars that slammed into me hard and sent my neat little world plummeting into the ocean. I never expected it to be you, you know? But it is you. It’s all you. And now there’s no looking back.”
—— Beau Taplin
.
I can’t wait to meet this couples little bundle of joy in just a few more months 😍

Never have I ever 🙊🙉🙈
————
Ready for two TRUTHS + a LIE?!
.
How to play? 🤷🏻‍♀️
I’m going to tell you guys THREE STATEMENTS about myself; and two/three will be TRUE & one will be completely false 😆 YOU guys will guess what you think is the LIE down below in the comments (only one guess per comment/ one entry per person) make sure to tag your friends below so they can also play along! 😬
.
The first person to guess CORRECTLY will WIN the chance to star in a video reel session by my SUPER talented hubby & second shooter @richducat (& of course collect some fun images shot by me!)🙋🏻‍♀️📸🎥🎞
.
.
.
HERES THE FACTS! Which one is NOT true 🤷🏻‍♀️😬👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
—————
1. I’ve lived over seas
2. I have zip lined through a forest in Oregon.
3. I first picked up a camera (seriously) when I was 13 years old.
.
.
.
Can’t wait to see who can guess the LIE correctly & star in our “movie” 😬💃🏻
.
.
.
(Must be local to win)

CALLING ALL BRIDES (to be)..
—————
Im so excited to document your day, your truth & magic.
Getting to know who the two of you are, your wedding wants, dreams and desires.
Whether or not you’re wanting a first look, or a traditional ceremony- heels or converse, formal dining or a food truck; I’ll be right there with you every step of the way, making sure you always look as fabulous as you feel thought the event.
.
Each image I capture, will tell a story- but not ANY story; YOUR story.
.
My brides don’t get their images on some outdated CD or drop box link. That’s too basic 👋🏻
My brides get their final high quality edits on my custom made organic wooden laser engraved flash drive and multi-functional memory box (swipe this image to view!).
.
I don’t shoot each wedding as if it were my own; I shoot each wedding as if they are YOURS. Specified to your style, your requested cherished moment list & the creative freedom you trust in me to gather. From the tiniest of details, to the traditional must haves- we don’t skip a snap 📸🎥
.
For our 2019 brides; we are now offering video services AS WELL AS photography. Make sure to ask us about all of our love story packages upon contacting us 🙌🏻

It’s true 🤷🏻‍♀️...
.
Whoever started “#womenwednesday” has burned it into my mind that on Wednesday we celebrate women 🤷🏻‍♀️✌🏻💃🏻
.
Not that women shouldn’t be celebrated every single day in some small way, but I feel like on Wednesday’s I find myself going out of my way to complement women, or lend my hand to a mother in need.
.
Do you guys ever find yourself helping others more, or empowering one another too? What are some things you have done to promote each other’s well being?

“Peace is the beauty of life.
It is sunshine.
It is the smile of a child; the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family.
It is the advancement of man; the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth.”
——— Menachem Begin
.
Tonight’s golden maternity session couldn’t have gone more beautifully. I’m always so overwhelmingly blessed when I meet such darling people. I can’t wait to meet their little love at the end of the year 👶🏻💙
