ummm . . .how about another sneak peek?

I know, I know. I promised a BIG post - and honestly I'm working on it - but today's my anniversary. I didn't get as far along today as I'd hoped, but I'm not about to work all evening on it, either :) I'm going to make a big batch of fresh gnocchi and watch movies with my husband. Check back tomorrow for a big post!
So yesterday you saw that the bride is stunning and that we had beautiful light that afternoon, so here's another clue to the wedding:

Yep. A horse-drawn carriage :)


Jessie + Pete - sneak peek :)

I'm working on this GORGEOUS wedding right now - I have a ton of favorites, so expect a huge post tomorrow! but. . . .later tomorrow. It's gonna take me a while.


Ali is 1!

I've taken a lot of photos of this cutie - at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and now 1 year!

such pretty blue eyes!

seriously mom. pick. me. up.

I love these two :)

my favorite from the day :)

the cutest little Halloween costume! I know she doesn't look thrilled, but she actually does like it. It was the end of the session and she wasn't happy that I was still sticking the big black box in her face :)

Thanks Matt & Tara!


Meet Pebbles

Pebbles is a beautiful Cocker Spaniel - adorable, sweet, and caring -

and is about to get a baby brother!

a cute family now - but even cuter in a few weeks, when Alex is finished baking!

ha! my favorite!

this one's a close second - it's kind of a silly shot. I like silly shots ;)


Coby + Mike

Coby and Mike were married on what was quite possibly the most gorgeous August day. I don't know if she did it on purpose or what, but she definitely planned her day to make my job easy! To start it off, everything was at the Sheldon, including where she got ready:

I LOVE her dress! and I have a minor obsession with the doors at the Sheldon.


this is Mike. he wasn't nervous, but I think he was ready to get the show on the road :)

they had a first look! I love those! We were able to fully utilize the day - lots of photos and they still got to socialize at the cocktail hour.

mom and dad watched from a distance :)

Coby - you're beautiful!!

awwww - so cute :)

I took the bus with them downtown for a lot of photo time. . .

the arch is fun :)

I love this shot of them!

fun shadows!


I love these!

oh but wait - there's more! we went to my favorite alley!!


I can see a BIG canvas of this one in your house already :)

I took a lot of Coby. I'm sure you can see why :)

they laugh a lot.

definitely a favorite!

. . .on to the ceremony!

while they were enjoying their cocktail hour, I took some pics of the reception room [bonus of having everything at the same location]

then the fun began!

possibly my favorite toast photo. ever.

when the bride and groom dance, everyone does!

even Grandpa :)

and they were smart enough to take a few minutes to themselves on the balcony [well, plus me obviously. I promise I was quiet :)]

Thanks SO much Coby & Mike!! Congratulations!
