So as you just read, WE ARE GOING TO LONDON!!!

It's pretty dang exciting and we've been looking forward to announcing this for a while.

Josh is going to barber school. That's right. He wants to be a barber. He's been thinking and dreaming about it and now it's happening. He will be attending the London School of Barbering and is going to be a barbering master by the time his 9 weeks is over. 

We are super stoked. We'll be leaving at the end of December and be home by April, just in time for wedding season here in Vancouver! So listen up 2014 brides: We will still be accepting bookings for 2014 Vancouver weddings while we are in London! We just might be getting creative with meetings... Skype? FaceTime?

Another exciting thing is we'll be booking portrait sessions and weddings while we're living in London! Some of the countries we'll be shooting in include England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. We'll be releasing specific dates at a later time. If you're interested in more info or are ready to book a session email us at info[at]greengingerphotography.com

For those from the Vancouver area, if you have friends or family overseas and share our work with them and they end up booking with us we'll give YOU a FREE MINI SESSION (1 hr session and 25 edited images!) 

a sczebel thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is typically that time of year when you wake up and find frost on your car. Its the time of year where you layer your clothes, see your breath, and start to cuddle up by the fire as though it was a blanket you thought you lost… or is that just me?

This year I was very inspired to make the Sczebel thanksgiving a very pretty thanksgiving. Full of flowers and other pretty things. What I didn't expect was that our thanksgiving day would be a balmy 23 deg. celcius outside. A spring inspired thanksgiving. Oh yes, you heard me right. We were so surprised by the amazing weather we decided to have our dinner bash outside. The possibilities were endless; with some help from one of my favourite local florists, Flowers and Company, I had a huge bucket of flowers to create with. 

I started with hanging eucalyptus leaves, smoke tree leaves (from the backyard) and pink snapdragons above the table. Some of the flowers went in little vases on the table and around the house. What I had left over I made a terrarium to sit in the middle of the table. The finishing touch, painted name settings with a sprig of rosemary. 

So there is our Thanksgiving. Now I'm ready for the Christmas season. Bring on White Christmas, and sparkly decorations.


 

Swallow your pride this fall

Let's be honest. Fall rolls around and you want a whole new wardrobe. Summer isn't really a exciting time to shop. Shorts are shorts and tank tops can only be so exciting. But just when you are beginning to feel the summer slump, cue fall. With its layers and rich colors, and heavy fabrics. My heart starts beating a little faster and I feel the urge to shop.

Unfortunately my budget doesn't allow for a glorious Fall weekend away in Paris but I have stumbled upon some local, cute fall options. Everything on this board is under $50. Can't beat that!

I was sick of hearing all the hype about Oldnavy Rockstar colored jeans so I thought I would go see for myself if these jeans lived up to their praise. For 19 bucks (cheaper if you have a coupon... I had 30% off) and pretty much every color under the rainbow, polka dots, cord, neutral and classic jean, I was starting to think this was too good to be true.

So I tried them on, grabbed a 6... I'm pretty consistently a 6. Tried to get them on, tried being the main word here. After trying and failing to make the 8 work, I swallowed my pride, "Can I try a 10?" All the while muttering under my breath even if these damn pants it no way I'm buying them. Size 10. Fit like a charm.

Guess what I walked out with?
