A Masquerade Themed Wedding | The Renaissance

  • James + Aimee

Two months ago I met with Aimee and her mom in Starbucks. It was a casual meeting and we chatted about the big day. It was coming SOON!! VERY soon! I’ve had a few winter weddings that booked a little later than usual this year and to be honest, it was a lovely surprise. In the midst of my “downtime”, I had the chance to shoot again! We haven’t shot a wedding since January and so we were really excited about James and Aimee’s Masquerade themed wedding! I mean, how can you not be excited about a theme like that!? Her dress, her hair, her makeup… she was just stunning!! James and Aimee dated for 12 years prior to their wedding… yes, 12. I love this about them because I can relate. Michael and I dated for 8 years before we were married and I’ll never forget going out to brunch the day after our wedding and thinking “Wow, I get to call him my HUSBAND!”…. Finally!!!

  • The Snapshot

believe how horrible my blogging was last week?! Oh my gosh! I haven’t had such a boring blog week since my honeymoon week!! I’m dead serious! That was the last time I can remember when I didn’t have post up every week day. The blog had some backend changes happening which resulted in me having to switch the nameservers to new IP address… or something nerdy like that. Anyway, that took 48 hours to process and it meant that ALL of my preblogged posts didn’t go live… such a BUMMER right?! I worked hard prepping for those posts. Oh well….

hate that the blog has been down all week! Posts were planned and they didn’t happen because my hosting company upgraded servers and switching my IP addresses took 48 hours. UGH. But I’m BACK! And I have so much to share. Michael and I have been in Santa Barbara this week for UNITED and it has been wonderful… absolutely wonderful! We are so blessed by this community of photographers and friends! I can’t wait to share more! That will be coming next week! For now, meet some of my newest photog friends! Roxanne and Jordan + Amanda shared a coaching session last week and they were so amazing!!
