Well, it’s been about a million years since I have posted anything on the blog, so I think it’s time to get something on here!  Here are all the fun things we did for Noah’s Bar Mitzvah:

TWO style sessions, one at the Hard Rock Cafe and the others at my studio.

 

From his portrait sessions, we created his really ROCKING Save the Date cards, Invitations and Guestbook:

Amber and Matt had one of the most amazing, perfect wedding days!  This sweet, laid-back couple were just easy-going and stress free and ready to have a fun time–I love love going into a wedding day where everyone is relaxed and happy and ready to roll with anything.  The weather was PERFECT and Canyon Springs Golf Club just gorgeous.  Amber and Matt met each other for a 1st Look prior to the ceremony with lots of little tears and giggles of relief to see each other.  They shared hugs and kisses and the excitement about what the day had in store for them.  We rode a golf cart out to the amazing waterfalls for some photos, finished up with wedding party shots on the lawn, and then gave everyone a little time to freshen up and prepare for the walk down the isle.  The ceremony was peaceful and heartfelt, and smiles went ear to ear everywhere you looked.  As soon as they came back down the isle as husband and wife, there was lots of jumping up and down and screams of delight to celebrate such a big moment!  Reception time was filled with tons of dancing, a few hilarious moves by their guests, some shots, and just a total air of enjoyment.  Even several motnhs later, I still remember their day in vivid detail, and I am so happy I got to be their photographer!  Their French Door wedding album was also amaaaaaazing, and I even have a sample hanging around the studio for anyone who wants to come by and see it!

I photographed these two 5 years ago at their gorgeous JW Marriott wedding, so what better place to go back to for their maternity shoot?  It was so awesome to cath up with this chill couple again and get excited with them about this new chapter in their lives together.  As usual, they were super photogenic and we got some gorgeous portraits.  Lori’s tiny little baby bump was so round and cute and she moved around with total ease (jealous over here–I was a waddle-whale haha).  They had the cutest, most smiley baby (who we just finished photographing for her 6 month mark), but that will come later, when I finally get caught up on this ridiculous back-log of blog posts  I’ve been slacking on!

Erica and Eddie wanted to keep things simple and sweet and just have some fun at their wedding.  They decided to do things a little differently than the average couple and had an indoor ceremony (at their church) and and outdoor reception.  It was one of the laid-back days where we had plenty of time between the two events to walk around and have fun with pictures, so we decided to walk along the Riverwalk for some great shots of the newlyweds on the way to La Villita for their reception.  It was a beautiful day and everything ran super smoothly with my gal Keri, The Event Assistant, running the show.

Vendor Shout Out: Coordinator: Keri Weber, DJ: Four Star Entertainment, Cake: Sprinkles, Caterer: Heavenly Gourmet, Florist: Oakleaf Florist, Hair: Aimee with Fonz Salon, Makeup: Clinique, Dress: Impression Bridal

Oddly enough, this is sort of the SECOND time I photographed bridals for Allie, lol.  I first met her over a year before her wedding date, when she was one of the models for a styled shoot I did at  a new venue.  Allie looked stunning then (and even made the cover of a magazine!), but seeing her in her REAL bridal gown, this time was even better.  She somehow managed to find this one of a kind gown that fit her PERFECTLY on the first try and it really does look like ti was made just for her.  With the flowers in her hair, and the gorgeous Japanese Tea Gardens as the backdrop, I just couldn’t stop envisioning a fairy queen in her garden.
