Long Overdue...

When life gets this insane - blogging isn't at the top of my list!

This has been a very rich season of life, and I'm loving it. I had the opportunity to visit my friends down in Alabama last weekend and wanted to share some of the photos I took at the gardens down there. Flowers speak of such intense beauty to me, and I could look at them all the time! I love to look at the very intricate details, the vibrancy of the petals and the layers. Their creation is amazing to me, and I wanted to capture that in my photos. It was a wonderful trip and I'm very grateful for the chance to visit with my friends!

Jim and Jen

Jim and Jen's wedding was wonderful, and very personal. It was both of their second weddings, and they each had their children stand up with them. Jen has four children, and Jim had three. I loved that during their ceremony, the pastor asked them if they would work to provide a safe, loving home for their children, and if they would do everything possible to make their families one - to which they responded "we do". And then the pastor asked the children if they would do everything possible to support their parents, and love and accept each other - to which they responded "we do". It was an incredibly touching moment to watch these two families commit to each other. Jim and Jen wrote vows that they each repeated, and my favorite line was the very first one - "You are my favorite moment of each day". There was a dress catastrophe before the ceremony. One of Jim's daughters had her dress zipper break! Hilary came with me to do tech stuff for me and she ran the daughter to TJ Max to buy another dress! Luckily they had the dress, albeit one size to large! It was a deep breathing moment for Jen but she handled it so well! Here are the photo's from the day...

Deborah and Keith

I loved this wedding because it was so personal! Deborah is six months pregnant and they had a very intimate wedding. It was in Keith's parents backyard and the arbor they got married under was made by his father. You could tell that everyone there was close with the family and it made for a very festive, friendly night! We had amazing weather, and just had a really fun time shooting. We got lost coming home, but Andrew and the laptop saved the day!!! I shot over 2300 photos and had a really hard time narrowing it down to only 80 for the slideshow!

Gwen and Gage

Everyone, please meet my sister and her son.

I know the photos are really over the top on the effects, but I'm having so much fun playing with ShowIt right now! I still can't figure out why the music won't play, so hum while you watch...

Josh and Lindsay

The long awaited slideshow is here! Josh and Lindsay were the sweetest couple, and so much fun to shoot! They were up for any type of photos, and Sarah worked with them so well - I loved watching her with them! It was a beautiful day and they had their reception at a hall that had the cutest little courtyard that was perfect for photographs!
