It was a beautiful October afternoon when they said, “I do!”
Normally I don’t shoot weddings but when asked to do this one, I couldn’t refuse. I remember getting the call when this gal came onto the scene 20 years ago. (Not to mention her mom and I have been friends since the 7th grade.) This beautiful baby grew into a beautiful young woman and met the man of her dreams. So needless to say it was an honor to capture this special day and be a part of it.
We were afraid it was going to get rained out, but Mother Nature changed her mind and decided to give us a gorgeous day. The sun was out, the temperature was perfect, and it was time for a wedding!! Thought I would share some of these moments with all of you!
Congratulations to the two of you!! Here’s to a long and loving relationship!! Cheers!!
Recently I did a photo shoot of something out of the ordinary for me. A new friend of mine creates shadow boxes. Now this is a term that I honestly hadn’t heard since I was younger. I was excited to see what she had created. When she first contacted me, she had 4 of them on already on display at a spa. I stopped by to take a look. All I can say is O-M-G!!! So much more than I had expected. Any of you that know me, know I am a total romantic! These shadow boxes were so amazing and told a romantic story!
So needless to say, I was very excited when she asked me to shoot her most recent shadowbox called “Hand in Hand.” I got to visit with her and find out a little more about her and her creations. Surprise, surprise, she is a romantic too!! Her home is filled with her inspirations. She takes such care in putting so many little details in every piece. For instance, all of the flowers are made from paper that she colors and creates individually. Blew my mind when I saw this up close.
With her permission, I thought I’d share some of the photos from the shoot. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Below, I’ll list her information if you are interested in contacting her or checking out her company out on Facebook.
Beautiful, isn’t it?!!
