Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

Some weddings have it all. Ultra cool location, incredible team of vendors, great styling and a super sweet couple. These are the stuff of dreams, and make for one very happy photographer! This next wedding was all that, and so much more. From the swoon worthy peonies in the bouquets, to the library inspired touches, it was certainly one for the books. It also happened to be one of the best organized and thoughtful weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing, thanks especially especially especially especially Courtney Caplin Cotter who did an incredible job coordinating the day.

I loved every minute of this wedding, and I think you’ll easily see why…

When it comes to Samantha and Tannon, I am completely biased. I adore them to the moon and back. So when their wedding day finally came and went I was both excited and sad. Excited to watch two soul mates become husband and wife, but a little sad I wouldn’t be seeing them as often. Meeting and photographing their love story has been a dream, and an absolutely honor. I watched them navigate the craziness of wedding planning with grace, joy and most importantly a sense of humor. This attitude carried into their wedding day, and the results were stunning. You can just feel the love, excitement, and happiness that surrounds these two.

We will be using her again for family photos!!! She was the best!!

There is just so much to love about this wedding. Shay and Joe are beyond sweet as individuals, but together they are really something special! I especially love how their wedding was a true reflection of them as a couple. They really highlighted the blending of their families, and cultures with both Persian and Asian wedding traditions. Not to mention the hidden gem of a location, which felt like we were in a lush forest in Northern California. I distinctly remember leaving the wedding feeling so inspired, refreshed and with a very full heart. Needless to say, it was a good day!

Like most, I completely fell in love with Pinterest the first time I used it! Within a few hours I had pinned hundreds of photos for my wedding, home and countless DIY projects I was gonna tackle. Flash forward a few years and my account turned into a hodgepodge of recipes, makeup tips and cute cat photos.

With a little spring cleaning I’ve refocused my account to be more photography related. I really hope this will be a resource for my couples who are looking for inspiration for their engagement shoot, wedding flowers, and even where to go for your honeymoon! Take a look at the new boards, and if you’d still like to keep up with my personal pins be sure to follow me there as well.

Happy Pinning!

  • Rachelle - I wish Pinterst was around when I got married. Looking forward to following you and getting lots of inspiration for our vow renewals in a few years. ;)

  • kelley simpson - What a great idea but huge job! I can’t wait to go see!

You’ve picked the dress, venue, cake, florals, and every little detail in between to create your dream wedding. But what about your getting ready photos? This commonly overlooked portion of your day is just as important as those wedding party photos, and with these tips you’ll be sure to start your wedding day off on the right foot.


Organize Your Accessories

Have all your accessories set aside and ready to photograph. This includes your jewelry, shoes, guarder, veil, and anything else you are planning on wearing. Please remove any price tags or packaging from these items so they are ready to grab and go.

Bring the Bling

I prefer to photograph your rings during getting ready, so if possible have all wedding bands with you while your getting ready. This includes your engagement ring, and both wedding bands.

Hang your dress on a nice hanger, no cheap plastic allowed!

Consider having a custom hanger made if you really want to add something special. How fantastic would this gold hanger be for your wedding? If I could do it all over again, this hanger would be a must!

Keep it clean

No one likes a messy room, so while your getting ready try to keep the clutter to a minimum. If every surface is covered with clothes, leftovers from lunch, and makeup these will show in the background of your photos.

Comfy + Cute

If you’re looking for a fun, functional bridesmaid gift, considering picking up one of these lovely robes from Plum Pretty Sugar. Not only will you all look adorable while getting ready, your ladies will have the perfect keepsake.

Don’t Forget the Invite

This is a great time to get a few styled photographs of your invitations. So you’ll want to bring a copy along with the envelope, rsvp cards, and any additional pieces.

Most importantly, while your getting ready don’t forget to have some fun! I’m a big fan of Champagne toasts, cheese platters and dance music. Whatever makes you happy be sure to bring it to help set the mood for your wedding day.


  • Rachelle - Great tips! I love the feeling of the images you included, you can feel her happiness. Great job capturing such precious moments! :)
