2012 weddings, a wander through

a look back at some of the moments, many of the faces, the feelings, the promises, love, laughter & joy i was blessed to witness last year. to each of the couples who invited me along & trusted me to capture your wedding story, thank you. I am so honoured & so much richer for having witnessed your walk into marriage. I am deeply, immensely grateful for the opportunity to be immersed in such days of delight, of love shared, of vows spoken, of hearts wide open with the wonder of itView full post »

these arrived today…

in this digital age, i so appreciate sending print products to clients. It truly is the best way to view photographs, to hold them in your hands, hang them on your walls, to carry them about with you. So they become a part of your day to day. And not simply a disc sitting in a drawer. matted & framed fine art print, standout wall print, accordion brag books.View full post »

more heidi & paul

in some cultures it’s a blessing to have rain on your wedding day. I don’t know how much the rain had to do with it, but heidi & paul’s day was blessed, indeed. Blessed with rain, with their sweet family & amazing friends, with the delight of kids, with heaps of love & fun & great food, all tucked in a beautiful venue brought to vibrant life with heidi’s creative vision. And blessed with the promise of a life given to one another. heidi & paul, itView full post »

Some people are like that. And then a  gathering with my family in the late afternoon, my niece is here with her brandView full post »
