Big Daddy’s Antiques Editorial Wedding Photography

I’ve always been drawn to furniture stores. Perhaps it’s because I am constantly trying to decorate, furnish or update one of the rooms in our house. So can you imagine how excited I was the first time I stepped foot into Big Daddy’s Antiques in San Francisco? It’s a huge warehouse/store, full of vintage goods, décor and furniture. They get a new shipment of curated goods in each month, and you never know what you’ll find in there. The collection is so amazing and always changing that I have no clue how you’d decide what not to buy … green or brown glass bottles? Oversized bird cages or vintage bikes? Vintage wood or aluminum box? Swivel bar stool or red tolix chair? Mercury lamp or glass lamp? Vintage airplane or jukebox?

Speaking of all these great accessories – wouldn’t it make for a great backdrop for a vintage styled wedding? To get your creative juices flowing, we teamed up with some of the best in the industry and set out to show you what a wedding at Big Daddy’s Antiques could look like. (And in case you haven’t guessed, yes, you really can hold your wedding here — with a store full of wedding décor to leverage and decorate with!))

Thanks to all the vendors for collaborating on this project. We hope you enjoy the photos and are inspired to find some treasures at Big Daddy’s Antique – whether for your home, or your wedding event.

{Mini Shoots} The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

It is always hard to find a perfect gift worthy of the amazing mom in your life. So this year, I wanted to create something truly special and memorable for Mother’s Day. Perhaps it’s a bit crazy or even a little mad … But we’re all a bit mad, aren’t we? =P. So put on your finest and join us for a Wonderland Mini Shoot on May 10th – It’s a Mad Hatter Tea Party! Don’t be late in signing up for this very VERY important date!!

WonderlandMiniShoot3

I’ve gotten some questions about this styled shoot … so to help others, I will be updating this post and answering them here.

Q: What is a styled shoot?
A: For our styled shoots, we have created a whole series of scenes inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter Tea Party. Treats and drinks will also be provided – so come for mommy and me tea time and a photo shoot. Or bring the whole family for afternoon tea and cupcakes! And while you play, we will shoot you. Also, included in your styled shoot session is a pre-shoot style consultation where we’ll help you plan out the wardrobe and scenes based upon who will be attending the photo shoot.

Q: Do we have to come dressed up in Alice in Wonderland character costumes?

A: Absolutely not! The set we created also compliments clothes you would wear to a nice Sunday brunch. Think tea party! See the last two pictures below.

Q: We would love to dress up in Wonderland costumes, but we don’t own any!
A: No worries! We will provide a pre-shoot wardrobe consultation to mimic the wonderland characters. We also have some kids costumes already that can be borrowed.
