Kieran and Sam

March 22, 2014

A couple of years ago, Sam was living in Phoenix, while Kieran was living in Los Angeles. They were utterly in love and Kieran was ready to propose.

I love working with friends so much! One of my favorites is Monique Sandoval, owner of Cleo and Clementine. Her work is unbelievably beautiful and her shop is this magical place where I feel inspired to dress more beautifully once in a while.
