Get A White Smile for Photos! (I wish I had done this before my wedding)

Across the world, people speak various languages, have different traditions, and practice unique customs, but the one thing that crosses all cultural lines is a simple smile. A smile is the universal sign of happiness and joy! Since getting into photography I’ve noticed the significance a smile carries, which is why I was so excited to partner with Smile Brilliant to improve and whiten my teeth! 

To all of my stunning brides and beautiful fashion clients for this upcoming year, now is your chance to experience affordable at home teeth whitening with Smile Brilliant! It is the perfect way to get rid of any tobacco stains or coffee stains to make your smile really shine in my photos!

Check out my before and after photos below! I did around 6 sessions spread out over 2 months. I wanted to go for a gradual whitening, rather than doing a session every night for a week. The process is so easy: Smile Brilliant will send you the materials to make imprints of your teeth and then they mail you custom-fitted trays made from the molds you took. Using the teeth whitening gel and desensitizing gel was super easy thanks to the personalized whitening trays, and I was able to notice a difference in the color of my teeth almost immediately after removing the trays each session. Honestly, having even slightly whiter teeth made me feel more confident all around! I’m glad that with Smile Brilliant I was able to choose the amount of at home teeth whitening sessions I did to get the precise whiteness I wanted. I think I will do a session or two a month as upkeep to combat coffee stained teeth, but overall I’m super happy with the results!

Although these are IPhone pictures- I noticed a BIG difference. I send selfies to my husband pretty frequently, and I felt like these best represented my before & after changes! I am so happy with the results.

(BEFORE) I really do wish I had done this before I got married. It's a small detail, but when you're wearing a white dress, it's a little more noticeable if your teeth aren't as white.

((Dave & Meg)) - WEDDING

((Dave & Meg)) - MARRIED!

The most beautiful winter wedding at Rock Island Lake Club. Meg and Dave put their heart into this wedding and it was such a wonderful day! Their love is adorable- surrounded by their closest friends and family they joined their lives together. Congratulations you two! PS... they were absolute troopers braving the cold for their photos! 

((Dave & Fran)) - WEDDING!

As these two amazing people committed their love to each other, they walked back up the aisle past their friends and family with so much joy. Tears in their eyes- their love so strong.

"Oh my gosh, we're married!!!", the bride, Fran, said to her new husband as they reached the end of the aisle. The immense JOY Dave and Fran showed on their big day was such an example of their love for one another and their shared love for their Jesus Christ. 

Congratulations you two! Your wedding was absolutely stunning, and your love even more beautiful. 

 

Here are my favorite photos from the day!

((Andy & Jamaila)) - WEDDING!


I've never seen love so radiant, strong, and deep as the love I witness when I'm with this couple. What a truly beautiful day it was celebrating the love of these two, Andy and Jamaila. Their wedding at the Woman's Club of Ridgewood- Rentals was absolutely STUNNING. I have NEVER shared so many photos for a highlight album, but this wedding day provided so many beautiful, touching, and funny moments! The first time I met Jam and Andy, they told me their celebrity "couple name" was "Jamandy"- ever since I have referred to this wedding as the. "Jamandy Wedding". :) Enjoy my favorite photos from the day!

They are both such sweet, kind, and sincere people- And they're finally married!! Delta Lake Bible Conference Center provided a beautiful backdrop for today's wedding!

Hoboken and the NJ Transit Train Station was a place of many happy meetings and sad goodbyes throughout Tom and Lauren's relationship as they lived in different parts of New Jersey. They will soon be together! Their relationship is so strong. I couldn't be happier to capture their wedding this fall and celebrate the joining of their lives together in marriage!
