Editor's Note: I am so excited about this new little series that is launching today! If you and I have ever sat down to chat about my business and the why behind what I do, then you know that here at KHEP it's not just about pretty wedding days.

4 Tips to Getting Your Styled Shoot Published

It's no secret that I love working on styled shoots. For me they are a way to get my creative juices flowing, to be involved in a project from concept to execution, and they allow me to produce work that I feel will attract my ideal client. Styled shoots keep me thinking and trying new things and, well, I just flipping love styling y'all! Since I currently have a 100% publication rate with styled shoots, I often get asked for insight on how we have had every shoot published, and published within our first or second choice publication. If you are nervous about pulling together a styled shoot or if you are wondering what you could do differently to get your work published, I am going to share

If I could do it over…Let’s talk wedding day {design} regrets

I was recently reading an article about Sarah Jessica Parker's new bridal shoe collection (gorgeous by the way!) and she said something that got me thinking. She was talking about the black wedding dress she wore in her real life wedding to Matthew Broderick. In the article she stated that it was "her biggest fashion regret". She went on to describe what she would wear if she was getting married today and how she would want a more "bridal experience" (read the original article in Vogue here).     It got me thinking about my own wedding day in 2009 and whether or not I had any design choices that I regret. In the past, I have mentioned that my biggest regret was not hiring a planner,
