Hello all… I know there are a few of you probably wondering WHY I haven’t posted your event yet or WHY I haven’t been quite as quick to reply to email.  Here’s your answer (that’s the sign for “I love you” he’s holding up… isn’t he a sweetie?):

Hubbie had ACL replacement surgery yesterday morning, and it’s all I can do to keep up with him! 

This is my favorite part of the whole experience yesterday at St. Luke’s… the big “NO” the surgeon wrote on Kelly’s other knee… DON’T CUT HERE!  Kinda funny, I thought.  

Surgery went great and he’s recovering well (but milking it for all it’s worth in the meantime and keeping me busy!  😉 ).  I hope to be back on track in a few days here.  So don’t panic!!  I’m still here and I haven’t forgotten any of you, dear people!  I appreciate your patience and prayers!!

Sherri+DJ= a super fun couple

I had such a great time hanging out with Sherri and DJ last week.  We hit the Heights and got some super cool stuff.  These are the kinda folks I’d just wanna be around because they’re so much fun.    

And this is Mika!  I’m in love with this dog.  We don’t have pets around here… I know, it’s mean.  We tried a puppy once.  But I was still potty training my youngest, and the first thing the poor frightened thing did was poop on my dining room floor.  I just didn’t have the patience to train them both.  It was the 3 year old or the dog… and I chose the 3 year old.  Mika has inspired me to try again 😉 .  

Love this expression below… definitely one of my faves!

Another fave… gotta love the backlight.  

Feelin’ the love….

Red, red, red… I think it’s gotta be one of my favorite backgrounds.  If I ever get around to updating my site, I may go red for my signature color…. hmmmm.  

And the BEST for last…  love it!

These guys will be tying the knot in October this year.  Can’t wait!



Emily…vintage romance.

We met up at the Crystal Ballroom (Post Rice Lofts) this weekend for Emily’s bridal shoot.  She wore her mother’s veil and a vintage 1940’s style gown, so this setting was a perfect match!  

these two (top and bottom) were faves for sure…

i try to pull myself away from the “upside down bride on the floor shots”… i really do.  it’s not working yet  🙂 . 

not to totally take you away from the dramatic romance we’ve got going on here… but this was great.  emily says she can get brian (her fiance) to do anything she wants with this face… ha!

this couch was a perfect fit for her vintage look… (i should call it something more elegant than a “couch”, huh?)

and we ended our session out on the balcony…

thanks to Emily, her mom, grandmother and coordinator, Angela, for all the help!  it was fun!



Rebecca & Paul… the final post!

We’ve made it up to the ceremony, which was just so sweet…

I loved this angle… just look at Paul fixed on his bride…

And during the prayer…

And I loved this series, simply because I am not usually able to get this close when the father gives his daughter away… such a sincere moment…

And on to the reception!

This next shot was so cool… I just turned around and there she was all perfectly posed! (an odd time to mention it, but her dress was amazing!)

I don’t think these people had any fun… what do you think???

And because there was no exit this was one of my last shots of the night…

A great way to end a great day!  I was so privileged to be a part of it all!  Rebecca & Paul, you are so blessed to have what you two share and to be surrounded with such amazing friends and family, as I’m sure you already realize!  Blessings to you and your sweet life together!



Rebecca & Paul… cont’d :)

So let’s get back into it with this FAVE!  Dianna was jealous! 🙂  A bridesmaid reading over the speeches, I think…

And yet another, waiting for her turn at makeup…

Well, gosh… you haven’t even met the bride and groom yet!  Let’s remedy that… the beautiful Rebecca getting ready…

This series just happens to take us out to her mini-session and back in again…

And now for some guy action… loved this shot of her Dad…

One of the groomsmen…

And finally!  Paul… our handsome groom… LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shot…

And let’s add the crew…

And we’ll end part 2 with some totally cute pictures of the ring bearer and flower girl…

And then this cute little thing…

And her anticipation right before the ceremony…

More to come…
