I am delighted to share this feature that is on Style Me Pretty Living today!  My darling husband and I threw a backyard party relying heavily on his amazing culinary skills.  I styled and designed the party, a favorite pastime of mine.  It is to date one of my favorite parties that we have ever thrown and I am so glad that I photographed it!  Looking at these images fills me with joy...and hunger!  You can see the feature HERE.  Enjoy!

Lovely Locks

Last month at the workshop Film Is Not Dead I had the pleasure of photographing Anne Robert, who is a gifted photographer.  This was my first time meeting Anne in person.  I had seen images of her on the internet so I knew she had long hair.  It was not until seeing her in person, however; that I understood just how long her hair is.  It was gloriously long and made me want to pop prenatal vitamins!  

PUBLISHED! Mandy + Ruel's Destination Idaho Thanksgiving Wedding on Style Me Pretty!

I am absolutely thrilled and honored to see Mandy and Ruel's Idaho wedding published on a website that I and millions of others hold in high esteem, Style Me Pretty!  There were so many unique and glamorous touches to this rustic wedding; the groom designed the whole event, the wedding was on Thanksgiving Day and held on a working ranch.  I have been waiting for over half a year to share this!  I look forward to sharing more of my favorites from this wedding.  Until then, go and leave the gorgeous couple some sugar with comments HERE!  Congrats Mandy and Ruel!


This image of Rachel and Nick reminds me to pause and slow down.  It may evoke an entirely different feeling in you.  It has been a wildly eventful month of May.  I have been shooting a lot, I helped coordinate Jonathan Canlas' Film Is Not Dead workshop in DC, and slowly but surely I have been moving out of my house!  I shot a wedding Saturday at a gorgeous plantation in Leesburg, woke up, packed and drove for eight blissful hours to North Carolina where I am currently attending Engage!13.  

When making packing decisions for North Carolina I thought bug spray and breathable clothes.  I was right about the bug spray but I am delighted to report that tomorrow's high is 75 degrees!  Maybe I should wear a jacket!
