Interior Design: Shabby Chic

I love interior design almost as much as I love photography...and that's saying something. These images were taken at my lovely mother's home in Virginia. If you ask me, Shabby Chic is the ONLY design style to go with, but I realize it's an acquired taste. :)

Engagements at Sundance

Aren't you just so glad it's spring? This fun couple and I got together last week to shoot their engagements at Sundance Resort in Provo Canyon. Not only is it a beautiful location, but it was a gorgeous day for pictures! I had a great time photographing this couple because they were so obviously in LOVE and very comfortable in front of the camera. Stay tuned for pictures from their wedding ~ coming in June!

Bridals: Spring Chic

This lovely session marked the beginning of Wedding Season 2010 ~ and I couldn't be more excited! The weather was beautiful that day and the couple looked fabulous. They were so comfortable in front of the camera...I had a great time photographing them! Everything about them just screamed "chic" to me. From her dress, to her jewelry, to his tux, they were absolutely stunning. Stay tuned for more photos of this lovely couple at their wedding this April!

Day 75: Reunions

My father recently returned home from Afghanistan for a two-week R&R retreat. When my mother drove to the airport to pick him up, she saw him standing there - in full military uniform - holding a single daffodil. I don't think it gets more romantic than that!
