Portraits: Sue & Alec

Give the groom some love

Sometimes, wedding portraits can be a little bride-centric. C'mon, she's got the pretty dress, the jewelry, it's "her big day" that she's dreamed about since she was a little girl... you know the drill.

Sometimes, the groom can get a little tired of posing for photos.

Sometimes, the groom just adds that little something "extra" just to make her laugh.

Hope this makes you smile, too...

A Lucky One

You know you are a lucky, lucky mom when you receive a gift wrapped like this:

 Containing a present like this:

From a face like that (can you tell Daddy dressed her?)

And, then, the ultimate luckiness, you get to end the day with your own mom. I'm a lucky one!

Meet Sue & Alec

I know, I know, editing photos on Mother's Day is not the best way to pass my day "off"... But, I couldn't help but post a couple of images from Sue and Alec's beautiful, sun kissed wedding yesterday on what the weather people called one of the most beautiful days of the year!

More to come, soon... for now, Happy Mother's Day to all! This mom is off to take a well deserved (at least in my own mind) nap!

Even more from Julia and Louis!

More from Julia & Louis

I always love photographing people that I have some sort of personal connection to - and Julia and Louis were no exception. Growing up with mutual family friends, Julia and led sort of parallel childhoods, a town apart. During our engagement session last fall, we discovered that we had envied the same Star Wars toy of our mutual friend's. Two grown women, each remembering the same toy from twenty five years ago? Trust me, this thing was cool.

 And, Julia and Louis are cool, too. Their love was evident to everyone in the room and their frequent laughter showed the joy that they obviously felt in one another's company. I had a great time doing their engagement session and their wedding was no different. Watch for more images to come soon!

Beautiful light from the stained glass windows that punctuated this sanctuary - totally loved this space!

I always love the moment just before the bride enters - everyone is excited and all eyes are on the anxious groom. Louis handled it with grace!

Meet Will

Another promising young actor coming your way - keep your eye out for Will!

Hoppy Easter!

A very Happy Easter from my little bug to you!

Gotta love the shades, right?

My father. This probably explains a lot about me.

 I never, ever get photos of me and my girl - usually every time she gets near me in front of a camera, my little squirmy worm gets extra special squirmy. So, I was extra glad that my dad was able to catch this one of she and I - I love that little bug!
