Meet Charlie!

Written by , Posted in Love, personal

After months of searching and perusing local adoption centers, Jason and I stumbled upon 3 little poodles at the Wright Way Rescue.  When we saw Charlie, we immediately fell in love- a playful little editing partner he will be.

Why Charlie you ask? Well, we felt it was appropriate with his fabulous white mustache and all. Who could go wrong with a fluffy office buddy?

Antique of the Week: Oversized Coffeepot

Written by , Posted in personal, Vintage

To aid our growing love and need for coffee, Jason and I stumbled upon a delightful coffeepot filled with post caffeinated cheer at an antique mall. The design and pops of bright and vibrant colors are the perfect aid to excite the sleepy eye.  AND! To mention that the Rooster reminds my a bit of a vintage version of all the Portuguese roosters at the Markets and colored towns on my trip to Portugal with my parents when I was in middle school. Haven’t seen them before? Image search ‘Portuguese Roosters’ on google! They’re fantastic!!!

Lovely Coffee

Written by , Posted in personal

So many new and bright things to talk about from the past couple of months!! First off, I must mention the excitement for Leanne and Brian’s wedding tomorrow at Salvage One.  Aaaand…. Leanne says that it is quite music inspired, from the band to the bouquet and boutonieres- guitar chips and excellent vibes.  Can’t Wait!

A few of the changes and discoveries for this year so far are that we moved to a new space, which has become quite exciting with so many possibilities.

And in the midst of discoveries, we learned that we live just a few blocks from an adorable coffee shop called Lovely which serves the delicious and smooth Intelligentsia  coffee.  On a little side note- I have also discovered that I am a huge fan of the Chicago Flag- I mean, come on, it looks awesome!

 

Along with a few other ventures and discoveries:

PINTEREST – Yes, I’m late in the game, so many of this years brides were taunting me with the visually inspiring pinboards. I finally gave in, and am loving it. 🙂

WRIGHT WAY RESCUE – Dog adoption= a wonderful thing.  Our new space allows doggies, so we’re excited to adopt a little doggie into their forever home.

BIKING – Yes! We are now a few blocks from many of Chicago’s wonderfully convinient bike lanes, can’t wait to take my Schwinn Beach Cruiser out for a spin.

PORTLANDIA– In the midst of 2nd Season- Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are quite wonderful.

ZKIN– Beautifully designed camera bags- only in Hong Kong of course.  Someday… someday I’ll find them in the US.

We are quite excited to share all of this year’s wonderful couples, along with wrapping up many of our weddings from last year- so much to share!

Happy Holidays!

Written by , Posted in personal

In the midst of Christmas shopping, Jason and I stumbled upon an epic cookie cutter- a snowflake the size of your face!  Which turned out to be perfect for tonight’s Holiday Cookie Exchange. 🙂

Happy Holidays from Studio Finch!

Under the weather…

Written by , Posted in personal

I haven’t ever really understood this phrase, as we are always… well… IN the weather.  But needless to say, I caught a bit of a bug the day after a wedding a couple of weeks ago.  And…. Jason caught it after taking care of me. 🙁   None the less, I realized that we are currently 7 engagement posts behind! So- starting Monday, the whole week will be dedicated to lovely fantastic couples and their engagement sessions.

Excellent. 🙂

By the way, today we are shooting Jen and Andy’s wedding!  9-10-11!
