i finally got to editing on michelle + jeff’s wedding, and i realized i haven’t blogged about their fantastic engagement session yet!

one of the best compliments i’ve ever received was when jeff told me that his grandmother cried when she saw one of the images and said it was the most beautiful photo she’s ever seen.  you know me and making people cry …

soooooooooooooo behind…

you might remember lisa+kent from their super fun and happy engagement session.  i absolutely adore lisa+kent.  it could be the fact that they are one of the nicest and funniest couples i’ve ever met or it could also be how excited they are about my work.  (yes, i’m a sucker for flattery.)

the wedding specs:  their beautiful day took place at one of my favorite venues, the chic and modern pravda studio and catered by ravishing radish.  the amazing day was coordinated and made possible by the one and only, mrs. strawberry

the block party ended up providing the perfect backdrops

my favorite shot of the day

2 images in 1!  what a great deal!

gotta give a big shout out to lisa+kent’s wedding details, since kent’s the one who actually designed and decorated everything! 

lisa+kent, we’re so glad to have met you guys.  thank you so much for sharing your lovely day with us!

call off the search team, i’m still alive…

… well, in a matter of speaking

our europe trip was fun and exhilarating, but since then, i have been chained to the computer trying to play catch up. 

since i don’t have much time to write a detail essay of my trip, here’s the cliff’s notes version of my afterthought:
1.  paris IS the most inspirational and artistic city in the world.
2.  people watching is just as fun as sighting seeing.
3.  the spanish people are all super hot.

now on to the good stuff:

my impression of “venus de milo

the metro was a favorite location for naps

i didn’t realize that the french was so into u.s. politics, but i saw several obama supporters and campaigns around paris.

one of barcelona’s hot po-po on duty. 

random image that dave took… even though i look like sh*t, i still really like it.

all images shot with our trusty little point and shoot, canon powershot sd870 is.  what can i say?  we got lazy and didn’t want to carry the beast around.
