this little girl and her gorgeous mommy were an absolute pleasure to photograph early this morning!
I simply can't stop smiling as I edit these off my camera...she is such a sweet, happy, funny little girl! :)

and I simply cannot NOT photograph her by herself...she's stunning! :)

[day|mason] wedding: a weekend to remember - colorado springs, colorado

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

second shooting a wedding is a strange, wonderful thing.

the anticipation, the first looks, the beautiful ceremony, the toasts, the tears...
they're all still there.

but that weight?
that weight of the gravity of knowing you're shooting someones
only memories of one of the single most important days of their life is somehow lifted a little bit.
not that it's gone entirely, but the knots in your stomach seem just a smidge less
and it allowed me the freedom I felt to look up and see the sway of the tree's as the wind blew through them,
the freedom to see the in between glances between two loves,
it was like a breath of fresh air. :)

so for me, THIS wedding?
this wedding that I got to capture with my uber-talented sister elizabeth of elizabeth ann photography,
was simply carefree fun.
getting to share something I absolutely love doing with one of my favorite people in the world
in one seriously amazing location with some gorgeous fun loving people?
yeah, I'd say it was a weekend to remember. :)

not for how they look...                                  
...but for how they see."

wasting time...

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

I've got a stack of books ranging from harry potter (yes, I'm just now picking it up, I know.) to the outliers.
I've got two sets of newly purchased knitting needles with projects to go with them.
I've got diet coke in vintage glass bottles (I've never seen these before!) at my disposal.
and to cap it off, I just got done watching an incredible midwest lightning storm roll through.
yes, I'd say it's time to rest and not waste anymore time. :)

the book of love - wedding - scottsdale, arizona

Monday, August 01, 2011

someone once said that:
"for every situation, there is a suitable line from a song..."
and I believe it to be true.

and their song?
their most beautiful song?
their song they danced to for the first time was peter gabriel's "the book of love".
in that moment, time stood still and it simply took your breath away.

the whole day did really.
and not just because of "Sassi"'s gorgeous picturesque setting...
and not just because of how unbelievably stunning she is...
and not just because of how his eyes shone when he looked in her direction throughout the day...

no, that particular moment took your breath away simply because it was the culmination of the entire day of getting to witness the overabundance of love the two of them shared together.
and mr. gabriel's song?
well, that only enhanced what was simply a pleasure to be seen in living color...
