Something that I didn’t expect is happening, and I am loving it.

My husband, second shooter, and partner in crime gets kudos, accolades even, at weddings. I hear things like:

“I couldn’t have spent those 30 minutes waiting with anyone better than you, John. Thank you.”  from a groom. And at the wedding prior to that one after the bride, microphone in hand, made a toast to her parents and bridesmaids, she proceeded to say: “and John, you rock!”. Haha!

The truth is, while I develop these amazing relationships with brides, at the wedding I am so focused in getting every shot, every moment, that John steps in to offer emergency assistance, bond with the couple, offer emotional support, and throw in the occasional, totally necessary humor to lighten a tough situation.

He doesn’t want to be a full-time photographer, and hates it if I treat him like one. But he supports me and shares in this dream that I am living; and for being my rock and right hand I am forever grateful.

Ana is right, my husband rocks!

The small bridal cottage at Meadowlark Gardens was a whirlwind of garment bags, feminine laughter and floral perfume as I returned from photographing the groom and his family. “West is dying to see you” I told Meagan and her mega-watt smile beamed unabashedly, and nervously. The day was racing up to this moment when they would see each other in private for the first time. Trying to approach it calmly, delaying it almost an impossibility. Meagan and West are so drawn to each other, almost magnetically. This energy permeated through their first look, and their beautiful wedding this past weekend. Looking back through the photos I could feel it in every image. The way they look at each other just radiates love.

Here is a small peek into their day…

Ever since we moved to our house in Georgia four years ago, I have marveled at this driveway a few blocks from our home. The perfect line of trees is always there, patiently waiting for the next season to bring about a new color. In the summer, they are a lush green that sparkles when the wind dances through their leaves. In the fall, they are bright orange-red, like a floating flame leading to an endangered house, this past week the first signs of spring are starting to paint them a cottony white, my favorite, and in another week or so they will change to the lightest, most tender green.

Today I took a few snaps of this pretty spot for the first time in four years. The transient quality of nature and its changing palette are a reminder that part of the beauty of this workd is that nothing stays the same, that we are allowed to change, and with each season there are new reasons to rejoice and grow.

Spring has me gaga over flowers. Ever since I made a few bridal bouquets for photo shoots I have had a craving to make more arrangements. I think playing with the colors and design of the arrangements is like playing with composition and color in photography, they are very similar. Here is my latest bouquet.

I have so much respect and admiration for love that lasts a lifetime.

This past weekend I photographed my good friend’s parents who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary very soon. These images are pure beauty to me. They are so happy, and at peace, living a life surrounded by kids and grandkids who adore them. I wanted their session to reflect this stage in their lives. Here are my favorites…
