Fashion Shoot: Moulagerie + Mark Stoelk

During my 5 year immersion in the Portland fashion industry after the launch of Christa-Taylor fashion (read more on that elsewhere) I had many cheerleaders. Karen Davis stands out as one of my most beloved friends and counselors. She gave me style imput, fashion direction even altered some of my designs completely.
So it was with much joy that I watch as she begins her own foray into fashion. Being the wise woman that she is, she is starting slow and working from there.

When we got to collaborate on this project together, it was like I had won the lottery. She read my mind and I could read hers.  To complete the look- we brought amazingly fabulous designer Mark Stoelk to feature his men’s line. OH yes. hotness incarnate. Thank you to Karen and Mark for your unwearied enthusiasm, perseverance and flexibility.

Let the story begin…. ___________________________________________________________________

The Bicycle Diaries. She was as posh as they come, cool and aloof, her nose in a book. No guy could tempt her, no handsome face turn her head. Every morning she gathered her things, ascended her bike and fluttered to the library. Every day she peddled  through the glade, head high, lips pursed.

He is daring, a journalist, and desperately in love with her. He saw her from the distance, wondered who she was and smiled to himself. He would not be ignored. He learned her name, learned her likes and every morning walked through the glade as she rode by. This girl was his butterfly.

He teased her, biding his time, laughing at her insolence and refusing her silence. This continued till she could ignore him no longer. Winter turned to spring, fresh sweetness was in the air and it was time for risk. He asked her to a picnic.

Her nervousness mounted but dissolved when in his company. She smiled so slightly looking back at him as they parted.

Gentle was her wooing, with tenderness and humor. The glade was their sanctuary, her on her bike, him on his feet, strolling through at their mutual pace. As Spring merged with Summer, two hearts danced as one.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
