From Maryland to Oregon to DC to New York to Virginia to Iceland to Washington & back – 2014

In a short sentence – this year has rocked my world. So much has changed both for my business and my family- traveling to 7 different states/countries to shoot weddings and another 6 countries for personal work, has been so amazing. Traveling is in my blood and when I get to combine that with my passion for photography – I can’t even describe how complete I feel. As I sit here and reflect, I can’t help but wonder – how could so much be jammed into 365 days? I feel overwhelmed with anticipation, love for my family and friends, hope for all the new adventures on the horizon, and gratitude for the lives I’ve been a part of. My clients are more than just clients; they each are a spectacular journey and so many have just begun. I’m going to keep this post short due to the high volume of prettiness which will sum up the incredible year of rad bride and groom’s Ive had!

Fine Art Prints, Packaging, and the canon 45mm TS-E ii

The the need for touch – the need to see though an embrace – inspiring every sense with something tangible. When you hold an image in your hand – the emotion, the memory of the grasp, the look you gave rekindles the thought you had, in that moment. The prints below are those produced by the fabulous Film Lab I use, photovision. The love I have for film can be directly tied to my love for prints. I have boxes upon boxes of them from the days where the only thing I had were prints and digital scans were something I knew nothing of. I deliver my prints in an english linen box, delicately adorned with an olive accent ribbon, and a gold imprint of my logo inside. Dena Robertson of Cypress is an increible artist and truly cares about her craft. It is evident through the quality and perfection of these boxes. They are a perfect acompaniment to my newly designed brand by the insanely talented Ravyn of Three Fifteen Design. The note cards reflect the perfect balance of quirky with the elegance of my business cards. Gosh, I could go on and on about how much I love my new site, brand, and just everything!

AND to round off this post – I got a new lens. This lens is not one I ever expected to own as it doesn’t necesarrily fit my film work or my soft romantic style but man oh man am I looking forward to the fun Im going to have with it. All images below were taken with the Canon 45mm TS-E

ISO 1000 | F 2.8 | 1/250 | In my kitchen
