.happy monday. {a day in the life}

Just received a text from one of our dearest friends, Paul Halverson, with these pictures!!!  (Thank you Paul, your iphone photo skills are off the charts!)

He & his family are awesome & this weekend got to hang a bit at ONE of the three weddings we shot! (love you all so so much)

Anyways! Instantly knew I had a blog post… even with my animated eyes, that were literally saying.. “cheese!”

Yes, THREE weddings in three days!! How they all lined out blew my mind, & that we did it even blows my mind more, but yeah! We did it! Which leads me to a few thoughts…

1. In the midst of hard work, attitude is key! No matter what, keep a happy attitude!

2. To all of those around me, thank you for your support! Seriously I couldn’t do what I do without you! You all know who you are & I just love you!

3. Ben! I love you! Thank you for shooting with me this weekend! & mostly for ALL of your support & strength! I love you so so much!!!!!!

.aaron + casey | creek haven vineyard wedding. {chico, ca photographer}

C A S E Y + A A R O N

These two are some of my favorites! I just loved getting to capture their wedding on one of the hottest days of the summer! I think it reached a high of 109. Yes, it was HOT! Praise the Lord that nobody fainted & everyone enjoyed the beautiful celebration of casey & aaron!

They were married at Chico’s Creek Haven Vineyard! Such an incredible venue! They saw each other before, which was so sweet! Shelly Gibbs & her team did an incredible job pulling everything off! It ran so smooth!! Thank you Shelly!

Congratulations Casey & Aaron! I am so thrilled for you two & know that your life together is gong to be absolutely amazing!!

On another note!

I entered a photo contest for Range Finder Magazine. I have never entered anything photo wise, but this image has taken my breath away & I thought it should be entered.

If you voted, thank you! thank you! thank you! Truly! It means so so much!

For all of you who have given me a shout out, THANK YOU!!!!!!

I was under the impression that the contest closed 09.04.13, but apparently it is still running, so if you would like to cast a vote, I would be sooooo eternally grateful!
