A windy Vegas wedding

The day for Emily and Dylan finally arrived.  After much preparation, thought and effort all the pieces and details fell into place.  The only one that didn’t get the memo was the wind.  The wind howled all.day.long.   I felt so bad for Emily, who worked so hard to make everything perfect, but she showed no signs of disappointment because she was finally married to the man of her dreams.
 They are such a fun couple and so perfect for each other.  They laughed, they played, they kissed, they stared at each other with googley eyes… it was perfect. 

Emily’s details were perfect.  Her bouquet was exquisite…. and it smelled pretty too.  She was absolutely stunning.

And Dylan, he was hilarious.  Such a good sport and so willing to just go with the flow.  There is nothing like having a sense of humor and his was better than ever.

I was also lucky enough to have Sarah Goodsell come along and snap some shots as well.  Such a blast. Check out the fun details she captured here.  She is awesome.
Emily also had all of her friends be her “Something in blue.”  She sent them all invitations asking them to be her special something in blue and that she wanted them to show their own personalities with their dresses.  Genius.  They were fantastic girls!
It was a beautiful day.  The only bad part… it’s over.  It is always sad when, after months of working together, the wedding comes to an end and I don’t get to chat with my cute brides anymore… At least that is until they have a baby:)
Congrats Emily and Dylan, you two are perfect for each other!

Meet Emily and Dylan.
One of the most fun, talented, and easy going couples you will ever meet.
He is a lawyer and she is now a nurse… yes they will have incredibly intelligent children.

It was so much fun to get to know them by getting information about one from the other.  
Dylan spilled the beans about Emily being invited to come to Juilliard to study.
Emily couldn’t hold back her admiration for Dylan’s cycling talents and ambitions. 
Once again, yes, they will have incredibly talented children.

Their loved oozed for one another.  They are so sweet to each other but still have fun joking and playing together.  Such a perfect match.
Emily totally rocked her bridal session.  Her dress was beautiful.  Her flowers were amazing.  And her energy was contagious. 
They have been such a dream to work with.  Can’t wait to share all the details from their big day… it was beautiful!

I heart faces: Motherhood

There is a moment.  
After 9 months of pregnancy,
countless hours of labor,
and
unmentionable delivery moments…
That you finally meet him.
You breath him in,
you fall in love,
you melt,
you know that you will give everything to this little person.
Because you are his mom.
The challenge over at I heart faces is all about motherhood.  Check it out and share

A Birth Story- Baby Gage

I pretty much have the best job… ever.  Photographing births is one of my very most favorite things to do.  It is so exciting.  It is so emotional.  It is so spiritual.  It is so empowering.  It is so beautiful.
And Sarah did an amazing job!

 The poor thing had to put up with a grouchy nurse, a long night, and all the usual crazy birth ups and downs.  But she still smiled and enjoyed the ride.  She is an amazing woman and an incredible mommy.
The proud mommy and daddy welcomed a beautiful baby boy, the third to their brood of boys, on April 8, 2011 at 10:36 a.m.

 He is beautiful and perfect in every way.  It was so much fun to watch his mommy and daddy stand in awe of him, to soak him in, and to cover him in kisses.

Welcome to the world baby Gage!
Congratulations Sarah and Trevor, he is perfect!
