A Summer Wedding

We shot Shana and John's Wedding this summer.  It was a gorgeous day in a local park a beautiful ceremony and some close friends and family.

Shana was a beautiful bride and a pleasure to work with!  Best Wishes to the both of you!  Thank you for letting us take part in your day!

We are done with Weddings for this season.  We have a few lined up in the Spring!  Until then, Miss Sadie will be my subject.  (okay, maybe Jamison, Jackson, Luke and Colin as well).

Summer 2008

Jay and I got married in the summer of 2008.  It was a memorable event.  300 of our closest family and friends.  I love this man.  I wanted a party, I wanted to celebrate and that we did!   I know unconditional love with him.  He is the kindest, most generous person I have ever met.

Sadie did make the Wedding,  unfortunately she didn't make the honeymoon.

Jay and I decided that we would forgo a Honeymoon and travel to Vieques, Puerto Rico in the winter.  Tracy, who there is no easy explanation for (how he fits into our lives, just know he does) decided that wouldn't do. He made arrangements for our whole church congregation to spend a week in a cabin in the Adirondacks.  

"Our Congregation", The Church of Us , later to become the Church of the Blue Durango consists of Jay and I, Tracy and... , Mark and Maurya and who ever else we invite to join us on any given day.  There is lots more to tell of The Church of the Blue Durango, but I'll get to that at another time.

We spent the week following our wedding in the beautiful Adirondacks, near Gore Mountain.  Just so happens there is a Garnet Mine there.  I love love love garnets.   We had great fun at the mine.  We spent a little time there almost each day.  I love a good scavenger hunt.  Hunting for garnets was fun!

In addition to garnet hunting, we took a beautiful train ride, went to a rodeo and spent lots of time drinking, laughing and relaxing. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures from that week!

A Spring Wedding Shoot

Kristen and I shot a wedding early in the summer.  It was one fun wedding party.  They were up for anything.  They had so many ideas for photo's themselves, we just went with it!  I wanted to share some of the fun here.  (Of course, given the fact there was a Puppy in the Wedding Party added to the fun.) 

I love the unexpected!
Black & White is so Timeless.
Amanda & her girls.

Having Fun!

Couldn't resist!

            It was a beautiful day, with a beautiful couple... Always a good combination!  Well Sadie is asking to go for a walk!  Guess I have to end for now.  Until next time...

Everything Starts with Sadie!

January 22, 2000  I got my little black Mercedes.  Everything starts with Sadie.  Who knew from there my life would change so.  She will be 11 yrs old this January and I am starting to panic realizing that she is not going to be with me forever, or at least as long as I live.  A wise friend of mine told me enjoy everyday you have with her.  Some may say she is just a dog.  To me, she is my confidant, my best friend, my heater on cold nights, my foot masseuse, she's my Sadie.  It all starts and ends with her!

This will be a place to show my Photography, eventually, but for now. 
It all starts and ends with Sadie!
