Somehow the first two weeks of December crept up on me, and I just realized that I only have less than 2 weeks to shop! Therefore, I’ve been looking for holiday gifts, just like every other person in the world right now. I’m completely lost when trying to think of gift ideas, so of course I turned to my Google Reader, where I tagged blog posts that showcased some products that would be great for gifts! I thought I would share them in case some of you were in the same situation as me…clueless!

 

These are just a handful of the things that I’ve found, and of course have also been looking at for my own gifts I’m giving.  A little something for everyone, and none of these are ridiculously priced either.

Caroline of CSE Photography recently sent these engagement photos over and I was pretty much mesmerized.  Yeah, I know, weird, but they remind me of a fairy tale!  It could be the colors of the sunset or the bride’s stunning blue eyes…whatever it is, I definitely had to share these!

These photos are magical, am I right?  It definitely helps being on the West coast of Florida too though.  We always have some pretty decent beach to photograph on, and we have a perfect view of the sunset!  Thank you for sharing this engagement shoot CSE Photography!

Heather of Infinity Images sent me this beautiful fall wedding, and I thought that perhaps we can all stand to see one more Fall wedding.  I’m sure some people up North are wishing it was Fall again anyways!  Of course when you throw in waterfalls and beautiful light, who wouldn’t want to see this wedding?!

This orange and red is the perfect color palette for a Fall wedding, and oh so fun!  Oh and let’s not forget about the bride and groom just bursting at the seams with happiness! I absolutely love it when a photographer can capture the emotion in such a beautiful way!  Thanks for sending these over Heather!

Usually I post inspiration boards on Tuesdays, but today I’m changing it up a bit! If you follow me on Twitter, you may have caught some tweets about my laptop losing all of my installed programs and downloads. Therefore, one week later, I am still sans laptop, which essentially translates into being without my Adobe Creative Suite. Unfortunately, this also means that I can’t put together an inspiration board for the usual Inspiration Board Tuesday!

 

These are some of the photos that have recently been incredibly inspiring to me.

 

SO in love with this dress’s lace…
