…Support Habitat for Humanity…
Hello world! My beloved friends at Matilda Jane are doing their annual auction to benefit Habitat for Humanity. I’m having a wonderful time here in Seattle, but I wanted to stop by and let you know about this amazing auction. I myself have put a couple items in there. Big ticket items…like wedding photography ahem.. So go bid on it, and support a good cause and in the process get a wedding photographer! 100% of the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity. Travel expenses for me are not included in the package.
…Amy and Robert…Punta Cana…
There are no words for this wedding. Every person there felt like sunshine. Happy, full of life. It was an amazing event to be a part of and they ALL made my entire family feel like a part of the celebration. Stella still says she misses Amy.
The week was so much fun when the wedding day actually came, I thought how could it be topped with the amazing rehersal dinner! No worries, because they totally topped it! I’ve never seen a bunch have more fun right until the last Merle Haggard song.
My favorite part of the wedding was a suprise to us all. The pastor recited a poem that I have held dear for ages and it could not have been a more magical, emotional moment. Anyone else love this poem by e.e. cummings? I think I’ve actually shared it hear before.
i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
sigh…Isn’t it wonderful…
I’m going to share more of the day after session soon. So stay tuned!
…Jess and Steven…
Jess and Steven are two of the most selfless people you will ever meet. Warm and caring. Happy and full of life. Amazing in so many countless ways. It has been a true delight getting to know them and their little Isla.
If you still can’t imagine how awesome they are from my words…well just check out their pictures. They will fill in the blanks for me!
umnnn yeah…that’s gun. Groomsmen gift. You should have heard Jess when she found out about that one lol!

…there is no greater honor for me than being choosen by fellow artists to document their stories. Rachel and Bradley are vocal artists, musical artists if you will… and will blow your ears, hearts and minds away. Just being around them blows me away. They REALLY are that cool…and their love for each other makes my job cake.
For their engagement session we headed out to her family’s farm where the wedding will take place…EEK! Yep, I’m excited!
Adore you two…thanks for laughing out the “situation” with me!
I’ve got sooo much work I am dying to share with everyone. I just need to find the time! So hang tight…I’ll make it happen soon!
…a Chicago engagement…
…meet Amy and Robert…they’re getting married in June in beautiful Punta Cana, and I am the lucky gal who gets to document it. Turns out they live in Chi-town and while I was there a few weeks ago we squeezed in their engagement session. It was supposed to be sunny and 60…
…nope…it was 39 and overcast. I was not prepared. I froze. At least they got to snuggle…;) To say they are adorable and wonderful is a total understatement. They were literally killing me everytime they flashed those incredile dimples my way. Can you imagine how cute their kids are going to be?
See you again in a couple months!
