EDITORS NOTE

HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! I’m delighted to present the first annual Studio Uma Gallery Book to you. What a whirlwind adventure this year has been! In November, Rangefinder Magazine released their annual “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography” list, and I could not have been more thrilled to find out I was chosen. Other highlights from 2013: this in-depth interview by one of my favorite blogs – Junebug Weddings, participating in Austin Fashion Week’s super fun annual MashUp photo contest and presenting “Everything You Need to Know About the Modern Indian Wedding” to NACE Houston and NACE San Antonio.

P HOTO BY A M B ER V IC K ERY

But best of all, this year brought me many wonderful new wedding clients. Being hired to photograph a wedding is such a gesture of trust. I’m deeply grateful to the brides and grooms who put their faith in me this year. THANK YOU. The heart of this magazine is a collection of my favorite wedding images from 2013 (page 4).

Twenty-Thirteen also brought several opportunities to explore my love of editorial fashion photography. I’d love to share these two photo shoots with you: “The Modern Minimalist Bride” (page 94) and “Dark Victorian Romance” (page 108). To accompany my favorite photos, I’m also sharing a few of my favorite poems with you through out this issue. N.H. Kleinbaum once wrote, “We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. Poetry, beauty, romance, love; these are what we stay alive for.” You and I have 11 months left to make 2014 special! Here’s to a year filled with plenty of poetry, beauty, romance ­— and love.

P H OTO BY AS HLEY LA NDIS


"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..." "They don't find it," I answered. "And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..." "Of course," I answered. And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart." - Antoine de Saint-ExupĂŠry, The Little Prince

“S I M P L I C I TY IS THE ULTIMATE SOPHISTI C A T I O N .” - LEONARDO DA VINCI


Inspiration for the minimalist bride

I adore mason jars and lace as much as the next girl. But with the abundance of vintage and rustic styled photo shoots on the wedding blogs, I wanted to explore a contrasting theme. The award-winning architecture of the Kimber Modern boutique hotel in downtown Austin was my inspiration for this. Our creative team loved the clean lines with plenty of white space, punctuated by pops of bright color. Our mission: eye-candy for the stylish, elegant, modern bride.


“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” - ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPERY


“It’s the kind of simple pretty that anyone can not only appreciate, but also fall in love with.” - STYLE ME PRETTY

SUMPTUOUS WINTER WEDDING INSPIRATION FOR THE SOUTH ASIAN BRIDE

I teamed up with LION & LAMB EVENT SERVICES to create this luscious bridal inspiration photo shoot – chock full of rich jewel tones and plenty of sparkle, of course! Tucked away in the forests of north Houston, the exquisite CHATEAU POLONEZ was our grand backdrop for this feast of the senses.
