I have the opportunity to meet new people when I’m taking their photo. Actually, I not only get to “meet” them, I get the chance to spend time with them and see their personality crawl out. This is, by far, the best part of my job. I am truly honored to be a part of these people’s lives, if only for a few hours.

I also love seeing people in love. And these two are overflowing with love for one another. Thank you, Chris and Katelyn, for letting me peek at a sliver of your time together. It was long enough to see that the love you share is amazing, beautiful and unstoppable.

Two of Us

March 12, 2012

When you find the person, the person you are supposed to be with, the person you are supposed to spend the rest of your life with, everything seems to just fall into place.

It’s perfect.

You learn to accept and not expect. You learn how to be patient. You learn how to share your favorite dessert. Even if you don’t really want to.

We are continually growing and learning. Continually thriving to do more, do it better and do it with integrity. With love.

Love is much more than candy hearts and flowers. It’s a relationship. And just like anything else, when you choose to nurture it, it’ll bloom into something much more than you started with. Something beautiful. Something fabulous.

Love that Shot!

October 5, 2010

This is the first time I’m contributing a photo to the Love that Shot Website. This weeks’ theme is: Favorite Faces.

I recently took Engagement photos of a wonderful friend I’ve known for 10 years and her now-husband (congrats, guys!) They just tied the knot 4 days ago.

This photo truly captures the closeness between the two. It reminds me of how they were staring at each other, in anticipation of starting their journey together. And the best part is that you couldn’t even tell that they were in the midst of planning their wedding which was less than 2 weeks away. Talk about being in the moment!

I wanted their Engagement photos to include the interesting textures and great colors that surrounded them. What good is a fabulous location if you can’t show any of it?!? It took me awhile, but I finally realized the worn brick used to read, “Buster Brown Shoes.” Love it. Oh, and I used a 2.8 70-135mm to get this shot.

The Beginning of a Journey

September 22, 2010

I love shooting newborns for the same reason I love shooting engaged couples. It’s the excitement of something new. The anticipation of an adventure that’s about to begin. The happiness and joy of being alive.

This gorgeous couple, Kari and Shawn, are getting married in less than 2 weeks. But you couldn’t see any stress, worry or concern on their faces at all. They were just happy to be with each other. And the best part was that they had a great time during the shoot, often cracking each other up. Which cracked me up.
