Shell Beach Wedding | Billy + Kate

Friday, April 30, 2010

Love was right around the corner for these two who met in their apartment complex. In Billy’s speech at the reception he related how natural their whole relationship had been and that he had never felt nervous, even as the wedding drew near, “because it was, well… Kate. ” It was very sweet and well deserved. Kate has a magnetic personality that puts you right at ease. They were both so warm and inviting and instantly included me in the festivities. I was happy to be there and get to celebrate with them and their families.  Congrats and I wish you both the best!

The bridal party got ready at the Dolphin Bay Resort and the wedding was at the  Spy Glass hotel in Shell Beach. The amazingly luxurious bouquet was designed by April’s Flowers. Hair and makeup by my forever favorites, Reeda and the Queensbees team.

Mediterranean Summers Personal | { Roots }

Thursday, April 15, 2010

The holidays are steeped in family traditions. But this year I broke tradition and spent my first christmas away from home and flew to France and discovered an old family tradition on my trip. My grandfather was a fantastic film photographer! We spent hours looking at old slides on an equally old projector in his stereotypically tiny Parisian apartment.

More to come on the rest of the fantastic professionals that came together for this shoot, and of course many many more pictures (dont know how I am going to narrow them down!), but for now, here is one of my images from the day to pique your interest!

Paris, France Personal | { Impressions }

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

My first Christmas away from home! On whim that still surprises me, I booked a ticket to Paris to spend the holidays with my family in France. This trip was my first winter visit and while the weather outside was frightful, the sights were delightful! However, a bit bored of post card pictures, and inspired by hours spent in the Musee d’Orsay, I decided to snap “impressions” of the city of lights. I filled CF card after CF card with blurry, and long exposure shots (to the utter confounding of my grandparents). Here are just a tiny handful of shots from my nana’s apartment and the parisian streets that at every corner remind you “we are not in Kansas anymore…”L43rL29r L28r L27r L26r L25r L23rL10r L20rL30rL09rParis is for lovers L02r L03r
