Time to Get Ready

Things have been ramping up around here. This coming weekend we're photographing the wedding for "The On's" (my nickname for Dawn and John), with Sarah and Matt's the following weekend in Cleveland. But my focus right now is on finishing the photos from Travis and Aliah's stunning wedding in Mexico.
Finding time to blog again is going to be tough, but I thought I would toss one out there for you to peek at. Aliah is simply breath-taking. And in this shot, she was only getting ready for the wedding rehearsal! I will be posting some more from their wedding as soon as possible, but I'm putting this one out there now just to wet your appetite.

The Brown Family Comes for a Visit

What an honor it is to continue to be a part of a family by photographing them as they grow. The Brown family has given me that honor and I'm thrilled about it. Bernadette and Al have now welcomed baby Justice into their lives, and he sure makes the family complete. The family lives on the East Coast, and still look me up to photograph them on this same beach each time they're in town. It's the same beach where I first photographed them when Bernadette was pregnant with her oldest son, A.J. As you see by his size, that was a little while back, and before my digital days.

The beach was crazy busy on this day, and I had a star sighting! David Baxter from Ohana Photography was there on a photo shoot too. Clearly it was a fine day to be photographed.

Saying "please" and "thank you" are important. And personally, I think knowing them in many languages is also important. Charlie hadn't said those words in Spanish for awhile and I taught them to him again. About a half an hour later, Charlie asked me for a drink, then said, "4-5-4." He meant to say "por favor."

A Few More of Sarah & Matt

Finally I found a moment to upload a few more images from Sarah and Matt's engagement session, including one where I was having a little more fun with "the ring" shot. And I just have to say that I LOVE New York! You don't get this kind of graffiti just anywhere. Kidding aside and artistically speaking, it's the love, warmth and tenderness you see between these two, regardless of the rough grunge surrounding the graffiti brings to these images that makes me like them so much. But then again, maybe that's just me.
Gotta comment? I'd love it if you'd post it.
