Pack You Bags- Styled Travel Shoot with Jessica Arden Photography

Jessi Blakely of Jessica Arden Photography is one of my favorite people. I may be a little bias, but she's  immensely talented, warm-hearted, spunky, and cuter than Dakota Fanning covered in pearly buttons. Jessi and I worked together on the Fashion Drive-By Project with Clarion Content, tend to get a little extravagant with our ideas, and love a good vintage treasure.

For this project, we wanted to highlight the different theme options people can achieve for engagement shoots. The days of having a 'travel suit' and your picture taken right off the plane are long gone, but that feel of elegance, leisure, and romance in wardrobes that came along with jetting away is something we think should be brought back.

Enlisting the help of Cody Tyler (Totes-Codes, visual artist, party extraordinaire, etc.), we played dress up all day.

All the sparkles are from Bel Canto Designs, a literal costume jewelry treasure trove.

  4. For more on The Team, have a look at GameSpot's assessment and some pictures in the collection below.In an meeting with The Protector, Playtonic movie director and 20-year Unusual veteran Gavin Price said that he knows what Unusual is creating now and that his organization may want to "collaborate" with his former coworkers down the RS Gold.

  5. I think that the authors say is very right, especially the views of the author close to our daily life.So we can go to the:Cheap Runescape Gold

  6. Working moms can choose a black hobo bag which is very practical since you can always stash all your things in. It is not too small or too big to carry around with you. You can easily put all your things like your smart phone, your wallet, your make up and other things. Choose one that has more than one pockets so that you can group your things together. travel bags
