The Time has come :) My dear friend and intern, Patty, is marrying the love of her life this coming August at Quail Botanical Gardens. Patty and I met for the first time at their consultation. It took about 2 seconds for me to fall in love with this couple. It was only a matter of weeks before Patty started interning with me, and I has been such a blessing. She is a beautiful light and being with Andy only makes that light shine brighter. Saying I am happy for this couple is truly an understatement! How I am going to hold back the tears to focus the camera at this wedding is beyond me! I’ll have to turn off all emotions and completely fix myself into “work mode!”

For their engagement session they started out in the studio and had a little Tequila to get things warmed up :) It was so fun! Then we headed over to Patty’s secret photo spot for the rest of the photos.

At one point I showed Patty an image on the back of the camera and she started crying!!! She is the cutest! She said it’s what she has always dreamed of! Wow! Remind me not to show her any photos on the wedding day :)

Ok, so without further babble, here are a few more images from their session…

Go here to see the first post :)

I am excited to finally be blogging about Jennifer and Chris’s wedding :) I met this lovely couple last fall over burgers and beers at the lovely Estancia. We had a great meeting and it was so obvious the love they have for each other! Chris is one of the many men who has fought for our country, and Jenn was here waiting for him to return, safe and sound! While Chris was away they had a locket that they each kept a piece of, promising that they would fit the locket together, and themselves as soon as he returned! Yes, this is a True Love Story. One of those weddings that although I was focusing on doing my job, I couldn’t hold back the tears!

Jennifer and Chris got married at Kona Kai Resort, and the sun came out just as the beautiful bride came walking down the isle…

Congrats to the newlyweds!!!

There were so many beautiful details at this wedding, starting with the shoes…

Love the flower girl accessories…

The Locket Jenn carried while Chris was in Iraq…

Jenn and Chris hired a ceremony Painter. She was amazing, and I love this as a way to remember the ceremony forever!

Check out the flower girl during the ceremony :) Love it!!!

Rather than having a cake, they went with Smore Cupcakes from Cupcakes Squared! What a great way to do something different, and the guests LOVED it!!!

Vendors:

Venue: Kona Kai Resort
Sharon Nelson

DJ: Luz Del Sol
Cricket Estrada

Painter: Event Painting by Agnes
Agnes Csiszar Russo

Dessert: Cup Cakes Squared

    Absolutely gorgeous! These need to be featured in a magazine. It will be very hard to choose pictures!!!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone mention “the economy.” Just this week alone I am sure I could buy a new pair of shoes or at least have a manicure! But, that is the point, I am not receiving a dollar, and neither are you. Things appear to be pretty bad right now, more for some than others. I was just told that 5 million people lost there jobs this year alone! Wow! And you thought you were hurting. All I can say to the person who informed me of this, is THANK YOU! Thank you for putting my life back into perspective. Thank you for helping me realize that even when times are a little harder, at least I am still working. At least I don’t have a family to feed, a mortgage to pay, and no way of doing it. Quite the contrary, I live blocks from the beach that I have the privilege of visiting on any random afternoon, I live in a beautiful home, I have the husband of my dreams, and my life is filled with friends and family who make me laugh. I am so so so blessed. I needed to write this today as a reminder to myself and everyone reading this. Because when things in your life are hard, just ask yourself, “does someone else have it harder?” I can guarantee the answer is yes. Not that other people’s pain should make you feel better. By all means, it shouldn’t! But, It should make you realize how good you have it!

and because no post is complete without a photo….

I got a new lens yesterday and I was trying it out in the studio before a shoot, and Lucy just happened to walk by :)

Happy “count your blessings” Friday Everyone!!!
