I had a shoot last week with a gorgeous model. It was a beautiful, but chilly day. We had the talented stylist, Lindsey Kessler with us and had so much fun as we captured beautiful images around town! We all agreed that it felt more like a fun girls day than a photo shoot. If ever you need makeup for a shoot, or even just a big event, Jen at Porcelain and Pink is wonderful! She's not only talented, but beautiful inside and out. Let's admire Lindsey and Jen's work and my beautiful model, Trisha.
Floral design also by Lindsey Kessler!

A few weeks ago the Pinson Valley High School, Class of 1999 celebrated 10-years away from high school. I got to participate behind my trusty camera. I attempted my first photo booth and thought it was a success! It took people a moment to warm up to the idea, but they caught on. Moments later, the dancing caught on! If you know me at all, you know I am always supportive of the dancing!

I so enjoyed Arrah and Michael's wedding with Amelia Strauss back in August. (WOW, that was a long time ago. Where does the time go??) It was definitely a party, full of glamour and beautiful people. Fun for a photographer!! The Sonnet House is such a gorgeous venue and Jill from Weddings By Jill did an amazing job with this hot pink themed wedding.

It is quite an honor when a photographer asks you to be involved in her own wedding. I got to shoot Kelly Merrill's day with Kristen Stewart. Kelly has been hugely helpful to me as I start my photography business.
Kelly and Garrett actually married in San Francisco in August, but had a blessing ceremony and reception to celebrate with their friends and family. I had never been to a blessing and it was really sweet. The ceremony was at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, which is beautiful and the reception was at The Summit Club. The adorable and talented Kelly did a whole lot of the decorating AND cake baking herself and it all came together just beautifully and in a way that suited Kelly and Garrett so perfectly.
Here are my favorites from the day.
The yellow and blue was carried out in the reception and were such a gorgeous combo.
Her mom popped her veil in just in time to walk down the aisle!Fellow photographers may be thinking, "I don't think you're allowed to take pictures in St. Luke's." That would be correct, but yours truly was blissfully unaware. If you're worried that the wedding coordinator sprinted down the aisle to stop me, you would be correct again. But at least I got these great shots first!
There was a LOT of dancing at the reception, which I just loved. My cheeks hurt from all the smiling by the end.
Aren't they cute?
10 points to whoever can guess what song this is!
