why flowers? why photo? why weddings?—
I’ll come right out and say it: I love beautiful things. But I also believe that while our world increasingly demands idealized and polished images, especially of ourselves. So I think one of the most important and validating things we can do is to see and express ourselves as we really are - as full, and complex, and powerful as that is. At Ephemera, we create both floral design and photography for weddings and events - but really, we tell stories.
We take the raw truth, love, commitments, and community that surround an event and translate it into the languages that express love best, that of imagery and flowers. We create an atmosphere unique to every event by designing with seasonal flowers that come into bloom in full expression of that one event, and we use photography to capture the unfolding of your story, and preserve it forever. I fell in love with photography through photojournalism, which is all about the little details, the unplanned moments, the spontaneous magic that happens when communities are brought together. Because in my mind, that’s one of the most beautiful things there is.
