Bon Voyage Jacqueline! Birds loves you!!

jacqueline_campbell_bermuda1Jacqueline is moving to Bermuda!!!

We’re so jealous/sad/excited for her! All the feels! We’re going to miss her so much – we loved having her as part of our team – but she’s off on a big fun adventure so we can’t be too sad. Here’s what she had to say about the move on her blog:

“a few months ago, my hubby andrew signed on with a new team and we’re super excited! this new team will be defending the america’s cup in june of 2017 and we just found out last week that it’s going to be in bermuda. we’ll need to move there as early as spring of this year!!

having this new piece of our puzzle, i had to think hard about how to move forward with my photography business. i love being part of birds of a feather, but because i’m going to be living so far away and it’s a california-focused collective, it probably doesn’t make sense for me to stay on. i’ll miss our meetings/meals/chatfests, shooting and planning things together, having my images appear alongside their amazing work, and taking on the wedding world together. while i’m a little sad to leave, i feel really fortunate to have built something great together and to have had the chance to meet a ton of amazing creatives in southern calfornia over the last couple of years.

and now i’m excited to take all of that experience and goodness and put it into a new adventure. from here on out, and in bermuda when we get there, i’ll continue to shoot in the same vein i always have, the main difference being that all of my work and info is now housed in a new place (go see!). i’ll be coming back to california and the east coast for several shoots in 2015 and can’t wait to book more weddings and shoots all over the place, especially since bermuda’s only a short flight from places like new york, boston, DC, charleston, miami, and even london. you may be surprised to know that it’s not in the caribbean… it’s actually all by itself in the atlantic, off the coast of south carolina and georgia.

our next step is figuring out where exactly in bermuda we’ll be living. i really have no idea since i’ve never been there (!), but i’m sure we’ll figure it out. i’m super happy for andrew and mostly just excited to take this on together, along with homer (the hound), who’ll be coming with us!”

Sitting in a Tree Craft Party

we recently co-hosted a craft party for some of our lovely wedding pals with tori from sitting in a tree events (she is an event design genius!).  it was an afternoon of sunshine, cocktails, mingling and crafting, all in sarah’s backyard in palm springs!  we were so fortunate to have help making it extra lovely from some of our friends.  aileen cheng designed a perfect invite for us, brown paper design provided us with gorgeous flowers for the tables, the hostess haven lent us the most darling plates/glasses, and the amigo booth showed up for photo booth fun!  read all about the day and see more photos on 100 layer cake!  to see some of what was made that day, search the hashtag “birdsinatreecraftparty” on instagram (and follow us @brdsofafeather to keep up with our latest, if you’d like!)
