Every girl comes into the shoot with different reasons and a different path that brought them there. One of the most rewarding things is hearing from these girls and how the shoot and day impacted them. we arent just playing in lingerie…these images and this time does something for a woman. everyone should see themselves with this eye of love and beauty. and that is something that we adore about OSWS is being able to make women feel incredible.

HERE ARE A FEW WORDS FROM OUR GIRLS WHO ATTENDED:

Ohmyeffffinggoodness lady, these are incredible!! I’m blown away. I love love love love love them!! And so does he!! Also yesterday was his birthday, so fantastic timing! 

Oh my good lord, I cannot tell you how amazing these are. You are such a freaking pro! Everything about this was incredible, you are awesome to work with- your posing instructions and feedback while shooting is so, so great, and you just know exactly what you want and how to make it happen. You are a true artist. And the finished product… holy fucking shit!! I love them, they’re so gorgeous and I love how I look in them. 
Also, my makeup…. droolworthy! Gaylin did so amazing, I want her to do my makeup all the time! It photographed beautifully- perfectly! I love it so much. So, so, so much.
I can’t stop raving, honestly. These are incredible. You guys are the dream team. Never stop doing these days, ohhhh sh!t I love it.
//

I just wanted to send you a little note about OSWS – I didn’t get to say goodbye when I left and I really want you to know how special my experience was. I had been wanting to get outside of my comfort zone and do a boudoir shoot for a number of years, but I was so nervous when I imagined what the session might be like.

I kept thinking that you might get nervous or uncomfortable around me and cover me up or put me in positions that would hide my body and then BAM! You put me in all these sexy, freeing, show-it-all-off positions just like all the other girls and you didn’t even bat a damn eyelash! Thank you. It meant so much more to me than just a fun day with a talented photographer, incredible makeup artist, and a lovely group of ladies. You lacked any kind of hesitation or fear and it was so normalizing! I felt more comfortable in my own skin while in front of your camera than I often do when I’m alone. 

//

I had such a wonderful time, and it felt so empowering. A bit of background on the #pheels I brought to that day: I’m a former professional ballet dancer, and after quitting ballet and going through some health issues that caused me chronic pain for almost 2 years, I’ve had troubles in the past loving my body and where it is now (vs what it was then) and all the pain it’s caused me, but as I get older, I learn to really love and appreciate all my body does for me, and this was the perfect self expression of self care and self love. Moreover, it was the 6 month anniversary of my aunt –my second mama– passing away and I promised her I would do ever daring and bold things in her honor, and while posing in lingerie would make her modesty-inclined self role in her grave, I get a kick out of always being her somewhat reckless and punk niece! 😉 Anyways, the day was so meaningful to me on so many levels, and it was an honor to work with a local businesswoman and artist such as yourself. I’ve admired your photography, your brand, and your value system for such a long time, and when I put a ring on my boo, I’ll be calling you to shoot us 😉

 

We aim to do Oh Sh!t, We’re Sexy twice a year and might be looking to add another on in October. you interested? Sign up for our mailing list HERE. Or if you’re interested in booking a regular Boudoir session (can you say wedding present? gift to yourself?) you can inquire HERE or email me (Andria@AndriaLindquist.com)

See you in the sheets.

Chelsea & Austin

// Wedding

a wedding that other weddings dream about in their little wedding sleep.

its unexplainable, every so often, there’s just a magic about what a couple is able to create. like a unicorn riding a bike. or a puppy playing a piano. when you see it, you just cant take your eyes off it. and its these days i just count my lucky stars that people continue to allow me to be apart of that magic..as if documenting it could somehow capture what we all felt that day.

 

chelsea & austin enjoy.

they live in it. they love. they radiate.

watching them together and those that support them, really truly was an honor.

not about the rules, but about what brings meaning. like writing their vows side by side in bed. // riding their typical way there and about, on a long board. // having a mid-day beach reception because they really do love the sea. // and creating a magical atmosphere to sit and celebrate their evening.

all the parts. bravo to all the parts, because each step just felt like them.

Chelsea & I found each other years and years ago when circumstances weren’t as happy and we had loved ones in the hospital. over the years, we had a little internet friendship and i love seeing the ways the world brings people into each others lives….I’m so grateful that I got to be a part of such a magical day like this and appreciate so much, the love and generosity couples continue to bring to me in order to document their day.

what’s so important to me as a photographer is connection. im not doing this as a machine. when i feel, when there’s that connection…it impacts my work so much. no way around it. its amazing what it can do and i aint pretending it doesnt matter. im so grateful that i continually am found by couples who are seeking that connection rather than packages and hours. its days like this, that i fall in my bed and am so grateful that i get to do what i get to do.

ALL THE LOVE.

//

a lot of times, you dont really know the experience…sure you see the photos, but what was it like for the bride the day of? It’s always my aim to bring a badass experience, zest, joy and a lot of direction. Chelsea wrote me the sweetest note, so i wanted to include it…to share a bit from the other side of the equation here. 

Andria Lindquist – you are a wonder of wonders and I have known for years that my wedding day would not have been my wedding day without you by our side documenting it all. You were worth every single cent and aside from marrying my fine ass husband, you were definitely one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. Thank you for choosing to be with us, and thank you beyond words for killing it and giving us such incredible magic. We ended the day wishing that it would go on forever, and now looking back at the photos it feels like we’re right back there – laughing all the laughs and crying alllllll the tears. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Our Wedding: Part 4 // Our Artists (AKA vendors)

// Personal, Wedding

ah yes, those wonderful people we chose to work with and been blessed by their amazing talents. as i mentioned before, there was only a handful of things i cared about, those things got insane work done around them, anything outside it. yea, nope…didnt give it a second thought. so for those things that we really cared about, i wanted to make sure that we were surrounded by likeminded bomb people who got what we were doing…so searching out the experience and brand within that vendor was super important. the handful of people we worked with…well, they were incredible and im excited to internet-duce you to them all.

for the most part, we dont get to pick and choose and be consumers that often. outside shopping for clothes or home items….we’re not typically choosing artists and people that we can support with our dollar, so when you can…..take your time, search em out, see what they’re about, go with your gut. the feeling they bring and the experience is so important to how you feel and joy you can feel by how they interact with you.

WHAT WAS IMPORTANT TO US 

The Food // im sorry to tell you, but wedding food is typically boring as f*ck and nothing to write home about. we wanted something fun. something different and not your everyday meal. yas. i cant wait to tell you what we chose.

The Dress // as said before, YOLO, i wanted a really unique dress. something sexy and something that wasnt necessarily white. well this came thru in the best of ways.

The Dinner // we wanted people to sit for 19 hours. to talk. to remind us of a dinner in europe where you burn time and dont even think about it. we wanted courses and courses and courses. the dinner was the main event of the evening…so the aura and feeling around the dinner was so important.

The Venue // #duh. this was hella important because it influenced the entire wedding and feeling people had there with us. I searched high and low for a bomb venue.

OUR ARTISTS

ELLEN SHERMAN

Her Role: hand painting our watercolor custom portrait of CJ and I, the tiny icons for our wedding book, and our “Thank You” custom portraits for our photo/video and food team. 

Experience: I’m obviously writing about her first, because, hello, the experience was wonderful and we felt so taken care of and that she was just as excited and interested in the project as we were. The paper was basically my obsession of the wedding, i found a way to get design into every part of the wedding, and her role was huge. we wanted something totally unique and never done before (big surprise) …not just for uniques sake but i really felt like doing things others have done, didnt feel like they were mine. doing something new, meant it was just ours. i reached out to her and heard back right away…she was so on top of getting me sketches and drawings quickly. took all my changes with no problem and just lived out exactly my vision…which was so amazing.

I would say, if you have a reason to reach out to her, do it. custom art. invites. a fun project. whatever it is, find a way. i have already used her again since and every time is a dream.

custom portrait thank you’s

i really wanted to find a way to say thank you to a few people who put insane work into our wedding and really impacted our day in a positive way. logan, tyler (photo), austin (video) and dante (food)…what do you get 4 guys? a candle?….no. another card in the mail? simply not! i really wanted to get them someone that they wouldnt just look at once and say that was a nice thought. thank you’s are important. i mean yea, we paid them…thats good. but a thank you goes a long way, and is rarely done in my experience. ding dong! a portrait! + i got to use Ellen again, so that was a bonus. I sent her photos of each of the guys, and these watercolor portraits were actually painted online, not by hand (again, so talented) and i adore how they turned out! they were printed on nice luscious paper and sent off into the mail to our vendors as a proper thank you.

feel free to use this idea on anything! i plan on bringing it back out for birthdays, holiday gifts…its gonna be amazing.

To sum up, we LOVED using Ellen and i cant wait to use her again. My advice would be, if there is one area you just LOVE and want to spend time on…search out someone great….its so worth the research and time to find someone who gets you and puts true love into their work. I know because of how important the paper was to me, i would have been so sad if i had just gone with someone who didnt give that experience that i was looking for. its not always just about the end result, its about the process & experience too.

DANTE FRIED CHICKEN

His Role: being the king of soul food. literally the king. the source of us stuffing ourselves beyond what is healthy or appropriate. 

Experience: lets call this the pursuit of my life. i found Dante on some CA food truck website. checked out his instagram and YOLO fell in love. this guy is mysterious, a real chase i’ll tell ya. i think i mostly became obsessed with getting him to cook for us because i couldnt get a hold of him….i went cray on my search. tweeted at him. IG’d him. wrote him an email. if this was a dating situation, i would have been called a stalker. This guy runs food-music pop-ups all over CA and the US, has cooked for celebrities and placed all his orders only via Twitter from a secret location.  whatever, i knew in my gut we had to have him. about a month later, i got a response from him and it was like angels singing. we slowly got things squared away over a set of months and our dreams slowly became true. we set our menu and he had sent us this visual menu with pictures which was such a cool way to see what we’d be eating. CJ’s one true love is good Soul Food and so this was his passion project for the wedding. He did not disappoint. not only was he talented but he felt like an addition to our family, he joined in on some scotch drinking and chatting….we cant wait to be in his presence again.

The Food: I know you all think you had good food at your wedding. well you didnt. i did. this was an experience. this guy is a genius. it is hands down – all across the world, in all the traveling I’ve done – the BEST food i’ve ever had in my life. the flavors, the way of cooking, the presentation, the taste. Food’gasm if i’ve ever had one. we had 4 courses. people sat down to a bruleed grapefruits that my mother picked for him that morning on site. we ate everything family style. huge platters, passed around, you can take what you want. i hate getting one small plate and thats supposed to be it? what if i want to gorge myself? well we did, and i did. so much so, that i went into the bathroom with my sister because i had over-eaten so much i thought i had to throw up #classy (turns out just taking my tight ribcage dress off allowed my to exhale properly, then i felt better). We had course after course after course. we literally couldnt even finish the last course that was brought to us. We were in heaven. We even got to pack some leftovers in a huge Tupperware and carry them on the plane home – and enjoy more food those following days. It was glorious.

I cant say enough about our experience using Dante. we are 100% without a shadow of a doubt hiring him for any huge parties we do the rest of our life. we have to get more people to taste his creations. he was thinking about bringing a food-music pop up event to Seattle and i would just like to put it out into the universe that we are voting YES on that. when people talk about our wedding in Palm Springs…its the food they talk about first. something we all got to experience and feel like we were in on the best kept secret in CA only its not a secret. thank you Dante for your incredible brain and talents. we love you mucho.

CAROL HANNAH

Her Role: Designing the dress of my dreams

Experience: yes yes and yes. i was in New York trying on wedding dresses (talk about a helluva experience) and hopping around shops that i meticulously researched and organized and setup. On one of the appointments, I tried on a dress i loved the seams of and the gal let me know she had a showroom in NYC and i should check it out. all my appts, i’d made a month in advance…but we called her shop from the back of a cab and somehow got a same day appointment. it was a sign. we got to the showroom, poured champagne and had the shop to ourselves to shop and mingle our way through all her gowns. i mean, trying on wedding dresses is like one of the best things ever…and im not a super girly girl (well depending on who you ask) but damn, i could do this every month. you feel so special and actually like a bride! // so when i tried on my dress we knew it was the one. it was stunning. so different and sexified!! i felt like a queen. i saw myself on my wedding in it. i knew it was the one. the team at Carol Hannah is small enough and young enough to feel like your peers, in a great way, they share in your joy. They were truly so excited for me and so happy that i was sooo in love with this unique gown. I had the absolute best best experience with them. The next day, I came in again to try it on and got to meet Carol Hannah. how great is that, you dont always get to meet face to face the designer behind your gown. overall, it was just the experience i wanted. feeling like i had a personal experience with the brand and was treated with love and excitement. as you know, dress shops see 942 brides a week, so feeling special and taken care of it really a gem.

Customer Experience: a little story…when i got my dress in the mail months and months later (because they make it custom for you) and tried it on at home alone….and put on the bomb over-skirt that i fell in love with (because its like 2 dresses!) and it was totally different than my feeling in the store. reason being, the one i tried on in the shop was touched and tried on a million times and softened to a flowy silk….the one i got was brand new and because of that, more stiff. i was so sad because i loved the flowy’ness of that first try on. So i reached out to them, and spilled my heart...and asked for the original in the store for my own. and yep, they were so happy to send me that one i fell in love with. all that to say, they showed me incredible customer service and wanted me to be happy and love my dress. and yep, you guessed it…i did.

Her Line // If you’re looking for a really unique dress, look at CH. every line and season is completely new and different. I think its cool that she’s not totally predictable. Her lines dont all look exactly the same. i get the feeling each line is a reflection of where she’s at in life and her vision for that time….if you’re wanting something a little non-traditional and different, seek this girl out! I really cant say enough, Im SO glad that I was able to go here for my dress and have such an incredible experience surrounding such a fun part of planning your wedding. they made it such a special part of my wedding.

APRIL LOOK

Their Role: provided all our gorgeous white bow-ties for CJ and the groomsmen.

Experience: the best. these are dreamy dreamy, all made by hand in Lithuania and arrived in the mail in the most beautiful packaging and look. They custom made our white bow-ties for us and matched perfectly to the guys suits….they were a wonderful matte white, thick and beautiful material. i LOVED these bow-ties. they hold their shape so well and include a how-to-tie diagram, because, newsflash its almost every wedding i shoot that if there are bow-ties, the guy has no idea how to tie it! (last weeks groom walked to Nordstrom to have his done day of) They have a gorgeous site and have a huge amount of colors to choose from. They had each of our guys send in measurements for their neck so the fit was perfect….their detail and care for a great product and delivery is wonderful.

They also offer ties and handkerchiefs, as well as of course the bow-ties..have basically any color you can think of and provided us such a great experience and delivery.

PLANKS & PATINA

Their Role: All of our gorgina tables and chairs and bar top in Palm Springs. 

Experience: the best! As i mentioned before, the dinner was so so super important to us. We wanted people to sit and eat and be there for hours. In Palm Springs, the food was our main event, so we really wanted a beautiful setup for the dinner that encouraged a nice long dinner. I could not be happier we chose Planks & Patina, they were so so super wonderful. John was so quick at getting back to us and had a great library of options for us to choose from. We chose their reclaimed long wood tables, their assorted chairs so it had some variety and fun to it, a few small side tables for the guest book, gifts and frame and then their Bar with a copper top. simple, not too over the top…..not too fancy but amazing quality. We didnt want too stuffy of a feeling or anything that didnt feel our vibe, so these fit perfectly. John was on time and amazing, set up the entire getup for us and was so easy to work with. I promise you, not every vendor is easy to work with (just in my life of working with weddings) so choosing someone with a great reputation and quality of service is so important. if you’re going to be giving your dollar somewhere, it might as well be to someone who you actually enjoy working with.

They are located in Palm Springs and serve the greater desert area. If you’re getting married in that location you must look them up! We absolutely adored

Gorgina, right? we were able to achieve our long long dinner and gorgeous environment, exactly what we wanted. it totally impacted our aura of the night and our families wanting to stay around the table like a good holiday dinner. the dinner in palm springs was absolutely a dream. and i am so thankful we found Planks & Patina and was able to use them for our wedding.

SIREN FLORAL CO

Her Role: providing the gorgeous pampas grass for our ceremony.

Experience: I found her online and simply chose her because her site was bomb and she seemed to have a fun personality – so i reached out and told her about my idea for a grass circle for our ceremony. i am not really a fan of flowers, they just dont feel like me or us. i wanted CJ’s suit to be him and not have florals and i wanted my dress to be the star…and not carry around a $300 bouquet for a few hours. they just arent me. BUT i did want the ceremony to feel dreamy and i loved how that grass looked. i contacted her actually pretty close to the wedding and she was so pumped to work with me (and randomly already followed my work!)  she immediately got shit all organized and was so speedy and happy to work on this tiny project for our wedding. i was worried that a florist wouldnt be willing to take such a small project since they are probably used to big $$$ projects but she was so kind and happy to fulfill this tiny floral dream of mine. she is located in San Diego (i thought LA) so she was even kind enough to coordinate a drop off with CJ’s brother in LA – she assembled all of them ahead of time so all we had to do was arrange the circle and blammo, we had our dreamy grass circle.

Her Work: This girl is uber talented and is all over the California scene and you cant scroll 10 inches on Green Wedding Shoes or  any wedding blog…people love her and for a reason. if you’re getting married in the CA area….#duh check her out.
