…Lauren and her Tim…
Having a Coke with You
is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne
or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona
partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian
partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yogurt
partly because of the fluorescent orange tulips around the birches
partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary
it is hard to believe when I’m with you that there can be anything as still
as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it
in the warm New York 4 o’clock light we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles
and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint
you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them
at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick
which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time
and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or
at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michelangelo that used to wow me
and what good does all the research of the Impressionists do them
when they never got the right person to stand near the tree when the sun sank
or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully
as the horse
it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience
which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I am telling you about it
…I can only imagine how awesome it must be to have Andie and Ted as friends. I swear Andie is Lucille Ball reincarnated, and Ted has such a hilarious personality. They are truely just a blast to be around and their wedding day was no exception. Fun fun fun!! Katie Saeger of Simply and Forever was the event planner and it was perfect down to every last detail. Andie’s hair and make up was perfect thanks to Holly Speakes. Her flowers from Tina Barerra were exquisite. Her cakes…delish…the dessert bar…BEST EVER(there was literally a line)! Thanks for having me along!
…Married in the Rocky Mountains…
…these two are living the dream. Park rangers in the most beautiful place on Earth…and lucky them, they got to get married there. Lucky me, I got to take pictures of them, in their home, Rocky Mountain National Park. We did a sunrise session, which didn’t seem like such an amazing idea to Aaron at the time, but come on….what do you think now?
Stay tuned for their big day…it’ s goin to be awesome!
I can’t believe how behind I’ve gotten with blogging. I only have time to sit down and share such a small portion of my work and I feel like it’s always the “big” kids. So I’ll share some of some kiddos too.
Fall is coming, and there aren’t many available dates. So please call or email and schedule your appointment soon.
…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!
