Leoni & Brian’s Wedding

September 17, 2007

It was wonderful to witness how Leoni & Brian balanced traditions from the Philippines and North America on their wedding day. Not only was it a merging of families, but also a merging of cultures…and they did a beautiful job incorporating and including elements of each throughout the day.  There were so many photographic opportunities, it was ridiculous…I had a really difficult time deciding which shots to include on my blog!

Chris & Mary Power

September 14, 2007

After taking his portrait earlier in the summer, Dr. Chris Power decided that we had to do a photo shoot of him and his daughter Mary.  So….we went to a park near their home in Whistler and went on a photographic adventure.  Mary was extremely outgoing and energetic,  so there was no posing what so ever….I was just along for the ride!

Toy Cameras in Alabama

September 14, 2007

This is my happy place where I like to go in the summer….Dog River, Alabama.  I spent 5 blissful days this August lying in a hammock, reading a book, listening to wind chimes and watching fish jump out of the river.  Just thought I’d share a bit of this peace with y’all.

I decided to give all of my expensive gear a break from the humidity and brought down an arsenal of toy cameras to play with instead.  They added such a care free element to my shooting…a fantastic feeling to just let go of technical control & allow room for “happy accidents.”

Jessica & Jeff’s Wedding

September 7, 2007

Jessica & Jeff’s Wedding was undeniably one of the most casual and laid back weddings of the year…yet the entire day was filled with excitement & joy.  No stress. No pretensions. Every one was there to have a good time, and that they did! I have to admit…when I was looking through the proofs from the ceremony; I started crying all over again.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a couple smile or make as much eye contact with each other during their vows.  It was beautiful to see.
