June 2013

  • The Snapshot

JUNE!!! Is that not weird for anyone else!? WOW! May was such a fast month! We shot several weddings, traveled, moved and closed on our new house… it was a whirlwind for sure! We just got home yesterday from a lovely wedding in PA and I’m not flying out again until July! I’m really looking forward to being HOME… in our NEW home! I remember when my parent’s built their house when I was in middle school and after we moved in, I never wanted to leave! Everything about it was so exciting and NEW that I didn’t want to go anywhere else!

From Bokeh's Perspective

  • The Move

up we had two springer spaniels. They were so sweet and definitely had personalities of their own. We were expecting Bokeh to have a personality but he kind of blew us out of the water with his. Sometimes it’s scary how smart and animated he is. If we’re in the middle of something and he wants to play he’ll put a toy in his mouth and toss it at us. If we don’t respond, he’ll pick up the toy and will push it against our legs. If we still don’t respond, he’ll huff at us and then walk away and flop down on the floor.

A Bayside Backyard Wedding

  • Huey + Natalie

As we left our house at 7am, I could feel the nerves coming on. I always get that way on weddings days. Photographers ask me if I still get nervous after shooting over 100 weddings and the answer is definitely YES…. especially when I’m shooting other photographer’s weddings! I remember squealing when I received my first email from Natalie! I was honored…. SO honored.. and I have been looking forward to this day ever since!! I knew it would be beautiful but I also knew that this day would be filled with SO much love and joy! Natalie and Huey have been together since high school and their love for one another has been growing for years. This day has been anticipated for so long and as the day went on, family and friends shared sweet stories and toasted to their love.
