First day of fall things

{ Here are some samples of the beautiful jewelry I've been shooting lately for fineNfunky. The first one is a bracelet made out of a 1920's vintage shoe buckle + the second one is a necklace with a blingy leaf. I love! Also, we have new songs + new pics on love + photo (especially in the fashion + portrait section). Thanks for all the support, everyone! }

Like the Best of Em...

So, I've noticed on other blogs that people are crazy about giveaways. LoveTaza does them. Cup of Joe does them. Even Cupcakes&Cashmere does them. So guess what? Now Love+Photo does them!!! Wow, my 1st giveaway...and I bet you are wondering what is in store for you? None other than the world famous, covetted by every starlett in Hollywood and Tahoe ski bum alike: the Dump Truck Couture hat!
To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment in my comment section as to when + where you would rock your DT hat. Or say something funny.

These hats are made locally in Tahoe City by my loving fiance + they are sold at FineNFunky stores for $45

The strangest thing I've seen today

{The dogs and I came across this strange rock sculpture at Lake Forest beach and they were as curious about it as I was.}

Two Peas in a Pod

Photos du jour

I adore shooting for fineNfunky's website lately! It's been easy breazy shoots everytime + it's so fun to create the outfits from a bag of couture that was given to me. This week I shot Sara, a Tahoe local who has her own funky style. We defintely toss styling ideas back and forth. I love her! The only hard part of this job is coveting all the fall + winter fashions coming out now that I want desperately :)

Hiking and Getting Hitched

Here are some photos from Joy + Cyril's wedding that we photographed last Saturday at Alpine. It was so much fun hiking up to the ceremony spot with the most beautiful views in the world! Also, Joy was the most laid back bride which certainly makes things easy. And how cute does she look in her wedding dress + hiking boots?!

Creating Coudure

Here is my friend Matthew. He is stylish. He is from New York.
I think he is the only person I know that would take a limited edition Louis Vuitton tee shirt and cut it up into a dog shirt (for his dog Shorty) and a DT Couture hat fit for Burningman. Gotta Love it.

Fall Fashions

{ Here are the latest fashion finds from Fine'n'Funky shot by yours truely! This shoot was so much fun because my besty Matt Chaves is in Tahoe visiting me so luckily he assisted me + played stylist/creative director. Merci Matt! }
