An Autumn Wedding

For some reason, when I think of getting married, I always think of getting married in the springtime. The air is fresh, flowers are blossoming, leaves are green, spring just feels like new beginnings. But Keely and Aaron’s autumn wedding is seriously making me rethink that.

I’ve been following Keely’s photography for a few years and her wedding is just incredible. I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone who has such a keen eye for natural beauty.

Keely told me on their wedding day, there was hail, blinding sunshine, rain and fog. They never personally got rained on or anything. It just made great for photos (spoken like a true photographer!).

I saw this photo shoot from two of my pals Ashley and Emily and a few other people and I died. And then I looked at the photos again and I died again. And then I knew I had to share this with you guys so that you can die at how unrealistically beautiful these photographs are too.

These photographs sum up my style so well (okay so maybe I wouldn’t dress quiiiiteee so flamboyantly in real life, but we’re talking aesthetics here, so don’t get too literal on me). Color, but not too much color. Dreamy, but not too much dreamy.

Every so often Instagram‘s Weekend Hashtag Project catches my eye. This past weekend was themed glitter (#WHPglitter). Of course anything remotely girly makes me happy and I was excited to see what people would do with glitter (I even participated myself!). On Monday, Instagram picks their favorite submissions, but there are always so many more that deserve attention, so I’ve rounded up my favorites.

Happy Friday people! This week went by super fast. I’ve been busy working on a big project for school, which (thank goodness) is almost done and shooting an outfit for a campaign that will go live on the blog on Monday (which I still have to write, heh). I’m really happy it’s the weekend and things are winding down now.

How amazing are these photographs by Chloe Aftel? New favorites of mine. I love how the film grain in the upper lefthand corner of the second photograph looks like fairy dust. Magic.

PS. Thanks for your kind words about my Warby Parker images & video. I really had fun putting the shoot together and hope to make more videos soon!

Take it easy now. xx – Micaela

One thing I love about Instagram is that it is becoming a platform for people to visually create. I use my Instagram account to share behind the scenes peeks and everyday snapshots, but some people get really fine art with their Instagram accounts. Remember when Flickr used to be THE place to be if you were a photographer? Instagram is kind of becoming the new Flickr. It’s pretty cool.

Captured Nina on Instagram is a new account I follow. She’s a 15-year-old student from Slovakia. I’m really impressed by how expressive her photographs are.

Filippo Minelli’s Silence / Shapes series is so soothing to look at. It’s an ongoing project started in 2009 in which Minelli gives a physical shape to silence.

I love the combination of soothing scenery with the colorful smoke. (The way that light is interacting with the smoke in the second to last image? Perfect).
