.johnny + mari. {destination engagement shoot}

johnny + mari

johnny & mari (mary with an “i”) are from the LA area! it was a treat to capture them all the way up in mccloud, ca. such a drive, but so worth it!

johnny first met mari when hanging out with a few of his friends from college, at mari’s house.

mari was super into school & studying, so to win mari over, johnny had to keep at it. he succeeded & their first date was del taco!! totally makes me smile.

they have been together for six years now. they have watched each other grow & change & have fallen more & more in love with each other!

congratulations johnny & mari! i cannot wait to capture you again!!!!!!

Ashton booked her session over a year ago, actually her auntie did! {Thank you, Kathy}  I have been really excited to capture Ashton!

Her enthusiasm & anticipation often made me smile! I love that I get the opportunity to capture the beauty of a senior!

A moment in their life that will always be remembered!! It’s truly touches my life every time!

Ashton! You are so beautiful! Your joy for life is contagious! Keep smiling! Go after your dreams & what’s inside of your heart!

Happy Class of 2014!

g r a n t | class of 2014

I am seriously one of Grant’s biggest fans, in fact my family is a huge “grant” fan!

Grant is absolutely a super-star when it comes to sports, especially basketball!

Last year we pretty much made it to most all of Grant’s games!

We are so proud of him & who he is & is becoming! So excited for this year’s basketball season! Go Cougars! Go #5.

Grant!! Thank you for having me take your senior pics!

I know good things are ahead for you! Never give up & always follow your heart & pursue what you are most passionate about!

Congrats! Class of 2014!!

.to be in love.

I often snap a photo as I am leaving the venue of a wedding. I turn around & click it! Play with a few settings & smile!

It usually turns out to be so romantical!

Everything is lit with lots of twinkle lights & you can feel the romance in the air.

As I was finishing out a reel of pics, I noticed that I caught the bride’s parents dancing! Even when no one else was dancing!

(oh to capture a moment)

It made me pause & just stare at the photo.

AH! To dance! To be in love! To romance! To happily ever after!

Happy Senior Year!! Thanks for having me capture you! It was awesome & you, girl, are stunning!!!!

.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!”

IMG_6959

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!!!!!!
