For this installment of our Local Love series we headed to Valencia street and visited one of our favorite new stores, Little Paper Planes + Owl Cave books. Little Paper Planes opened earlier this year in May and it’s such a great addition to the bustling Mission neighborhood.
Little Paper Planes is owned and operated by Kelly Lynn Jones, who ran LPP as an online shop for years before launching this brick and mortar version of her store. Kelly is joined by Viniita Moran who brought her online bookstore Owl Cave Books into the shop. Owl Cave Books has a wonderfully curated selection of hard to find art books and magazines.
One of our favorite things about the shop is the space, which was transformed with fixtures and hand built pieces created by Kate Pruitt.
The shop also has a print gallery which features a new artist every month and a residency program which can be found in the back of the store. The residency program offers space to artists, makers and curators.
If you’re visiting the bay area or if you’re a local who hasn’t been to LPP + Owl Cave Books yet definitely make a trip there. They have such a great selection of goods and they’re so well curated and displayed, you’ll definitely leave feeling inspired and hopefully with something fun you didn’t have before.

Last week Refinery29 came by our new studio and took some photos of Eunice and Sabrina for a feature on San Francisco siblings. They were thrilled to be included along side some of the city’s coolest siblings. The piece includes a pretty fun q&a with Eunice and Sabrina about each other — including Eunice’s favorite memory of the two of them growing up. You can check out the full Refinery29 feature right here.
Thanks for including us Refinery29!
We wanted to say congrats to our friend and amazing product photographer Edyta Szyszlo who just launched Tomfoolery SF with her partner Jared this week.
We’ve had the chance to experience their ultra stylish open-air photo booth several times already and we’re big fans of the fun backdrops and clever props.
Check out their playful website and be sure to book them for any social events you have big or small!
Congrats Edyta & Jared and best of luck with your exciting new venture!
Do you remember this exquisite English countryside wedding of Lisa and Rory? It was recently featured (with a huge spread!) in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia Bride with pages full of gorgeous photos, insider information, and all the classic details that made the event so memorable. We had loads of fun working with the charming couple, and are over the moon about the great publicity their wedding has received. Congrats Lisa and Rory!
Eunice and Sabrina’s recent feature on Sosh‘s series Tastemakers is definitely one of our favorites. Sosh, the new online activity guide, is the ultimate resource for travelers and city dwellers in San Francisco. Whether you’re looking for the best coffee in town or want to get your heart pumping with a new exercise, Sosh has the best of the best all lined up. When the team asked Eunice and Sabrina to share their favorite things about San Francisco the answer was undoubtedly yes. Their fellow Tastemakers are some of the most inventive people in the city, including Thomas McNaughton of Flour + Water (one of their favorites) and Mike Krieger of Instagram. The sisters gave a few tips on great places to find inspiration, where they go to unwind, and their favorite places in the city to take visitors. Check out the entire feature here.
Thanks again to the team at Sosh for coming by the H!L studio. We can’t wait to see more Tastemaker stories to come! To join (for free!) head over to their website today.
Earlier this summer we were in and out of the Creativebug studios shooting four different craft video tutorials, the first of which debuts on their site today!
Creativebug is a new website dedicated to online art and craft instruction. They offer high quality video workshops on almost any topic – from pottery to bookbinding. They have some amazing crafty superstars in their lineup already and we’re totally honored to have been asked to be instructors. Right now you can take classes from people like Diana Fayt, Natalie Chanin, Debbie Stoller, and others – check out the complete list of instructors here. They’re constantly adding new videos and teachers to the site so be sure to check back often.
Our videos are focused on crafts to make for parties and can be adapted for any size event from a big wedding to a small birthday gathering. We had lots of fun shooting them and we hope you check them out! You can view our trailer and tutorials here.
Thanks to the amazing team at Creativebug for making the experience such a great one. We can’t wait to shoot more!
Did you see this charming boho wedding shoot on Green Wedding Shoes? It was styled by Karin Kamb of Clever Girl Consulting and photographed by none other than Edyta Szyszlo. The sultry green backdrop of the Mendocino Farmhouse paired with the neutral organic elements of the clothing and decor made for a comfortable and romantic setting. The models are local folk singers, too, which made their connection seem so perfect.
Eunice designed a brand new wedding suite for the shoot, appropriately titled Bluegrass. It’s still in the works but will be available on our website soon!
To see more photos from the shoot head over to Green Wedding Shoes!

This week Wedding Row California wrote a wonderful post about letterpress printing at Hello!Lucky. With specific details about the creative process and gorgeous photography by Josh Gruetzmacher. We feel touched when people show such interest in the age-old printmaking method of letterpress, especially when they spend a whole afternoon learning the ins-and-outs.
Printmaker James is a fabulous tour guide, and showed Abigail (the author) and Josh the steps of creating a New York City Skyline letterpress wedding invitation from beginning to end.
