Behind the Scenes Studio Tour at Carolina Herrara

Rebecca Yale Photography: CH &emdash;
Having grown up in Los Angeles, I've never been one to get overly starstuck.  However I dare anyone to not get a little clammy in the presence of Carolina Herrara.  She is a true icon and the epitome of class and grace.  Usually it is my job to make my client feel at ease and very rarely do I feel nervous, but walking down her beautiful dark wood lined hallways I was trembling a little and when she smiled and shook my hand and asked for direction she immediately put me at ease.  Mrs. Herrara has been photographed by some of the most amazing photographers in the world who I've spent many years studying (including a stunning Mapplethorpe portrait about to be inducted into the National Portrait Gallery in DC) so I felt an immense honor and responsibility to capture her beautifully- and she really is so stunning in person.  I placed her on her signature Carolina Herrara striped couch underneath a Hirshfeld sketch of herself and a portrait of her at six years old.  I then walked around her offices, which are filled with beautiful books, artifacts, photographs, sketches and mementos from past collections.  One of my favorite details was in Creative Director Herve Pierre's office- lampshades pinned with artifacts from past collections including a picture of the fabric Marie Antoinette used for her drapes at Versailles and the violin pieces they placed on a models back a few years ago for a collection inspired by another one of my favorite artist's Man Ray.  It was such a pleasure to get this behind the scenes peek into the world of Mrs. Herrara!  Head over to Style Me Pretty for more stories and behind the scenes photographs from our afternoon.

Sandy and Kain's Glamorous Oheka Castle Wedding, New York City Fine Art Wedding Photography

Sandy and Kain's wedding celebration at Oheka Castle was a gorgeous day full of elegant details and a celebration fit for royalty.  From the absolutely stunning bouquet and floral arrangements from Avaflora to her gorgeous Monique Lhullier dress every detail was perfection!  I had the pleasure of photographing Sandy and Kain's engagement party last year, check out the beautiful feature on style me pretty, so it was so much fun to work with them again and document their beautiful wedding day.  I absolutely love getting to know my couples during the planning process and these two are just the sweetest!  The love for each other and their big families was evident in every moment of the day and was a joy to capture for them.  I loved that instead of big crazy favors that people end up throwing away they went with an elegant chocolate box from godiva and a beautiful letterpress note telling their guests that a donation had been made to North Shore Animal League, an animal rescue out on Long Island, a very important cause and one I happily support as well so that was a favorite little detail of mine!  Another favorite was during dancing the bride's mother surprised her by bringing out traditional salsa dancers who put on a mini show for the guests.  Talk about getting a party started!  Read all about their day and see more photos on BRIDES Magazine.
