When B arrived for her boudoir appointment, I nearly stopped breathing! Since most of my clients book me online, I rarely know what they look like before they arrive at my studio. B looked like she stepped straight out of a magazine! I felt more like I was shooting a model than an actual client!

Twice a year, I offer family mini sessions: once at the holidays and once in springtime! I think these moments are so important to capture because kiddos tend to grow up so quickly that photos twice a year barely cut it! While holiday cards and updates are important, so are springtime celebrations!

When L told me she wanted to gift her groom with some sultry bridal boudoir, I was over the moon! I just adore this bride and was thrilled to honor her wedding bod through imagery! These images will forever be frozen in time so when she is old and grey, she can look back and remember her youth and how it felt to be a bride to be.

When D told me her vision for this session, I about died of excitement. D and I grew up swimming outside together so we have always been used to being somewhat naked in public. Swimmer girls have no shame when it comes to their bodies so when D wanted to celebrate her bridal bod with an outdoor boudoir session on the beach, I was all about it.

Outdoor Boudoir Session | South Florida Boudoir Photos | Kir Tuben Photography

I love it when clients let me get creative. D is in the prime of her life: she is a successful business owner, single, in incredible shape… I felt honored to be able to capture this time in her life when she is killing it. D also let me get super creative with these images which I LOVE! She is fearless in front of the lens and it really paid off.

Is it your first Spring as a married couple or is this your millionth blossom season together and you just want ONE photo of all the kids smiling just once!? I got you covered. You can go formal with a gown & glam up or jump in your jeans and admire the pink blossoms all around!

As a Florida gal, it was no surprise that I was in love with Paradise Found. This Pantone concept embraced tropical. This palate encourages bright colors, vibrant hues and palm leaves galore. Coastal brides can easily make this theme work but I was happy to see it come alive in Washington DC! Summer is kickin’ with this tropical bar.

Pantone Wedding Trends | 2019 Wedding Inspiration | Paradise Found

Stroke of Midnight had an extremely elegant color scheme. I also LOVED this shoot because it prominently featured a same-sex couple. I think representation is SO important in the wedding industry so when a national company like Pantone or Wedding Wire elects to create an editorial with two grooms, it makes me incredibly happy. We had an absolute blast while shooting in the Something Vintage warehouse. The entire setting was paradise for any photographer.

Pantone Wedding Trends | 2019 Wedding Inspiration | Stroke of Midnight

Golden Hour was probably my favorite shoot of the Pantone editorial. I find it very rare that couples go for warm and earthy tones on the East Coast so this was a joy to capture. I love the way that these colors looked on both film and digital. Any florals dripping from the ceiling have my heart.

I have always been in love with editorial work, so when Wedding Wire contacted me to partner with Pantone to capture the wedding trends for 2019, I was overjoyed! I was extremely honored to be chosen to photograph 4 different color schemes for this year’s wedding inspiration. I had an insane amount of creative control and was able to contribute to the vision boards, suggested venues and brought my favorite stylist Sincerely Pete on board to help carry out this vision.
