I just finished a wonderful engagement shoot, and I am trying to narrow down the blog pics.

However, I just came across this one and was like "Whoa." Sarah is just stunning. She is like a J.Crew model or something.More to follow...


They're growing up so fast :)

Today I did a shoot for an all-time favorite family. The youngest is getting big so fast and his mom wanted some pictures of her precious, precious boy.
Kyle is such a gentle giant. He is so big, but very sweet and has a smile that will melt you.
I love Jason Reeves's "You In A Song" and I thought it fit Kyle perfectly :)


"Trying to figure out
Which way I want this to go...""Do I want it to be happy or sad
Or fast or slow?""Trying to work it out
What it is I feel""Do I wanna rock you, shock you,
Soothe you or move you?""I just wanna write you in a song"
"Put your smile on paper""So you can sing along""I just wanna bottle the sun""Keep your light a secret""I can find when you are gone..."


One more time....

Joe and Kristen are the first couple that make me feel old (and, I'm 18, so thats weird). Joe was in some of my classes in highschool. My age group can't be getting married yet! How does this happen so fast? His fiance, Kristen, is the sister of one of my good-friends.
Joe and Kristen looked like they were on the set of a movie during their shoot. It was almost too perfect how happy they were! Of course, there was no acting at at all - they are just genuinely and completely in love."She's so kissable, huggable,
Lovable, unbelievable"
"She ain't typical,
She's unpredictable,
She's available, its a miracle!"
"How my heart stumbled into someone
So kissable, huggable, lovable, unbelievable"
"Up till now my life has been so lonely and boring" "I never thought I would find someone so
Elegant, intelligent, heaven sent, all my money spent""I put a big down payment on that itty bitty diamond ring""Shes so beautiful, its indisputable,
It's undeniable, shes got-to-havable"
"She's music to my ears, and makes my heart sing""So kissable, huggable, lovable, unbelievable"
"There's so many things
I want to tell her
Like, I love her
But every time I talk
I start to stutter"
{While I was waiting for Joe and Kristen, I found this adorable little vintage shop nestled in the city. I went in and had this insane adrenaline rush. "Oh.my.gosh." The place was awesome, and I decided that Joe and Kristen just HAD to play dress-up during the shoot :)
And being the fun people that they are, they dove right in and were great!}Aaaand, this just made me smile:
I am so happy for you two and I can't wait for your wedding!


D + D Foreva :)

There are so many "types" of love-stories. The "love at first sight" stories, the "best friends who grew up together" stories. The "one who got away, but came back" stories. I decided that my favorite kind, however, are the "high school sweetheart" stories.
Dan and Debbie met junior year in high school, and liked each other pretty instantly. It's been a few years now, they are getting married and they are more in love than ever! It's so, so sweet to see!

We went to the place where "it all started" - their school :)

"Well we go back so far,
swingin in your back yard"
"All the things that we used to do""We were cool back in high school
"Ooh, I really liked you""Must have been your attitude""That’s why you keep on running
In and out of my mind"
"As the years they’ll roll by""Baby, now I know why
I keep coming back to you""You’re the only one that knows me""Love it when you hold me,
Never find a love like this"
"Let me hear you say,
Now I’ll never be lonely""Look at what you’ve shown me,
Never find a love like this""Well, this life tries to keep us apart
You keep calling me back to your heart" "Let me hear you say,
I'm so glad you found me"
"Wrap your world around me"
"Never find a love like this"

ps. It was about 15 degrees outside and windy as anything - Dan and Debbie were such great sports!


I love you.

"These words are my own
From my heart flow
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you"

Usually, not always, but usually the couples I shoot are similair in that the girl is all bubbly & outgoing, and the guy tends to be more stoic, gentle and serious. Ha.

Not today. Beth is bubbly and outgoing, and Joe is just crazy. They are like little children running around life together and its so super sweet.

I shot engagement pictures for Joe & Beth and they are SOOO funny. When I was taking these pictures of them walking Joe was like "Oooh. I really like these kind of pictures. Yeah, these will be nice. Beth, just keep walking and move.your.hips. I'll do the rest."
Joe keep telling Beth "Come on! This is serious! We have to do this right. We have to be creative and have fun, right Kristen?"I think they did an excellent job together :)"There's no other way
To better say
I love you, I love you...""Now you've gone & raised the bar right up
Nothing I write is ever good enough"
Because Joe & Beth are all kinds of awesome, we went to the neighborhood Giant grocery-store to finish up the shoot :)I told them to go stand by the Juicy-Juice and flirt like they were "at lockers in High School Musical" haha I loved how Joe starting flexing - too goodAaaaaw.This might be my favorite picture of the day - they were looking at the lobsters in the SeaFood Section.
They danced in the yogurt and cheese section (also known as the Dairy Section haha)I heart you two!!!! You are so fun, so happy and so in love - I just love it!
And I can't wait for your wedding this summer!
(ps. I saved the other song you told me about for your wedding - its just a super romantic song like that :D )

"Can't think of a better way,
And that's all I've got to say,
I love you, is that okay?"
