Save The Date!

Tara loves this photo from her shoot with Chris. She asked me to incorporate it into their 'Save the Date' announcements.... and here is the result. I think I'm in love! :)

Wedding Invitation Design

I love it when brides ask me to design their wedding invitations! It means I get to combine their photos with my training in print design, and the result.... fab invites with gorgeous pics. :)

Having a professional background in both photography AND design allows me to offer additional professional services to my clients!

Here's what I recently put together for Nicole and Jonathan. She requested something striking in black and white, and wanted the tall, narrow photo of the two of them featured on one side.

This is the reply card

Shoot Shack: Heidi & Jan Michael

The Shoot Shack was on fire last night! Emir was on-hand to rock out some photo fun with the whole crew. What a great bunch of peeps! (Scroll down to see their wedding post!)

Is it just me, or are these two red-heads drop dead gorgeous?

The ushers and best man. What a bunch! (Steve... seriously, you could go pro!)

This is Clayton and his girlfriend Katie. They were kind enough to let Emir and I crash their table at dinner. Katie played soccer with my sister when they were kids, and recognized me because she thought I look like my sis! Isn't that amazing?

You two make a beautiful couple, and your family and friends are nothing short of fabulous.Thanks for letting us be part of your love story!

Married! Heidi & Jan Michael

Heidi is the incredible harpist I had the pleasure of meeting last August at Katie & Nathan's wedding. I was thrilled when she asked me to be part of her and Jan Michael's big day!

When I meet with clients, I'm always excited to hear their engagement story. Everyone has a story. Even if the groom proposes in the bathroom while the bride is brushing her teeth.... it's the beginning of a new family-to-be, and it's a beautiful thing!

Jan & Heidi's story is something from a movie (literally, it's all caught on tape!). Jan proposed to Heidi while she was falling from 10,000 feet. She was sky diving, and he was on the ground with an enormous sign he had made that said, "Heidi, Marry Me!"

Their wedding day was perfection. Here are some of my fave moments!

On top of everything else, Jan and Heidi are amazing dancers! Their first dance was a tango, and they totally nailed it! (Emir and I did a choreographed dance at our wedding too.... dance lessons are a great way to spend quality time together during the mania of planning that takes place before a wedding.)

Garter toss, mid-air!

What a treat to be part of your day... thanks for including us in your celebration! Best wishes for a happy forever, and a fab time in Mexico!

New in This World

Look at this new little cutie! I stopped by last week to document Piper's young existence. What a doll!

Look at that little face!

So much hair!


Welcome Miss Piper-- We're glad you're here! :)

Toffee Goodness!

Sue, one of my FABULOUS clients, dropped off this lil' batch of deliciousness this morning. Home made almond toffee! How can you top that?!

If you appreciate home made yumminess, or know someone who does (Valentine's Day is just around the corner!) give her a call: 450-1493. (Especially yummy with coffee!)

Turner came back for his 2nd shoot at my studio and was such a good sport! Great to see you guys again. :)

Totally NOT Photo Related...

I like to read... a LOT.

Often, when I read in bed, I wrestle a quite a bit with the book. Low and behold... while blog surfing, I discovered these lil' wonders! Who invents this stuff? And more importantly, why didn't I think of that??? :)

If you like it as much as I do, click the photo to go to the site.... Happy Reading!
