  • Jason + Jackie | Everyday

really rainy evening the night I drove down to meet Jason and Jackie for the first time. I lugged my sample albums into a little mexican place and we sat and talked and I loved them.  I ended up shooting their wedding, a close friend’s wedding and then Jackie’s brother’s wedding too! I think it’s easy to see that I love this family. There is just something about them.

  • The Jazz Nativity 2011

wish I wasn’t running out the door for a lunch meeting!! I wanted to have time to explain just how amazing Jazz Nativity was this year at our church! Jazz Nativity is a large scale Jazz concert and it’s literally one of my new favorite Christmas traditions! This was year two that I was able to be a part of the production and guess who else sang with me…. MY HUSBAND. Bet you didn’t know he could sing did ya?!! Well, that’s because he HIDES it! I’ll be posting a video later on when I return home and actually have some time to finish up this post. But for now, I just want to leave you with some fun images
