Snowy Mountain Engagements

I had so much fun with Pete and Mariza! They were willing to trek through the knee deep snow for some uhhmazing photos, I really wish that we had someone there to document us behind the scenes! We kept sinking and falling into the snow. Poor Pete just had his dress shoes on, he might as well had on ice skates. They would have had better traction. But they stuck it out and I'm so glad they did. Mariza's dress is sooo gorgeous I love how the velvet caught the lighting, the colors they chose complimented the snowy pine filled scenery perfectly! I'm really not a fan of the cold, but the snow sure is beautiful. I can not wait to shoot their wedding this June, I'm certain that it's going to be gorgeous and full of love and laughs.

At home with the Laynes

I got to spend the day with the beautiful and talented Tracy Layne Portraits in her gorgeous home. I had some definite home envy, their house is filled with this yummy natural light. Dad is an architect, so naturally it would be the definition of perfection. I loved hanging out and capturing all of the love that was exploding out of their hearts. You can just see the joy on all of their faces. This video encompasses all of the emotions and will make you tear up with happiness. This is what it's all about right here, these memories of the best days ever. It is so rewarding to be able to give the gift of these moments that can be re-lived over and over, even after Ollie's lego collection is collecting dust while he's off raising his own family,  Sophie's stuffed animals have been given to the local daycare center as she's off to college and Chloe's more interested in her boyfriend than ..well anything else. They will still be able to go back and cherish these little glimpses in time, when they were the center of their whole world! Seriously, the best gift ever. Don't wait to book yours, because before you know it, they'll be all grown up! Make sure you press Play !
