Beautiful Cupcakes …all dressed up for the tea party. My Cupcake Corner makes delicious cupcakes decorated for all sorts of occasions and events. They all have fillings that make them extra special (the Bonny Dune blackberries are fantastic!) Kelly, the owner, told me they are very popular for weddings because everyone gets their own little cake, and the couple saves the cost of cake cutting. She has a line of booze cakes just for such an occasion. They are local, vegan, organic, and she sells through the internet and at a pop-up stand – doesn’t get much more Santa Cruz than that!
As professional photographers for the last 10 years, we have come up with a few good storage ideas for our photography equipment.
It’s not hard to make your own cookie mix, and you can use any of your favorite recipes.

The secret … we have found, through years of experience, that most of the day’s important events occur within a four hour period. Realizing this gave us the opportunity to offer luxury wedding coverage at a very reasonable rate. Luxury wedding coverage usually includes candid photos of the wedding party getting ready, the “first look”, family portraits, the ceremony, editorial style photos of the reception decorations, the details, the invitation suite and the cake, candid photos of the wedding party arriving at the reception, the first dance and the toasts. With some very thoughtful planning, we are able to thoroughly cover these events. Timing is everythng…We time our arrival for when the wedding party is almost finished getting ready. We usually work separately to photograph the bride and groom getting ready, and this may be at different locations. One of us arrives at the bride’s location after she has her makeup done, but is still having finishing touches done on her hair, before she puts on her dress. The other arrives at the groom’s location …
