(clearly I started this post on new years, got side tracked, and never posted it. I thought I should now before we get too far into 2011!)

There are no words to say how wonderful this year has been. I have met so many amazing clients & new friends. I have witnessed some amazing weddings, newborns, babies, families, beautiful ladies and even a birth! And well most personally important our little family has grown to include my darling son. All in all it has been an amazing yeah personally and professionally. I want to thank you all for supporting me and my love for this whole photo taking thing.

Here are a few (ha, like I could choose just a few) from the amazing 2010!

(one of the few cell phone photos you will ever see here, but an important image none the less.:)

Whew that was allot! Kudos to you if you made it the whole way through! Thanks again for making 2010 so amazing, 2011 has already been pretty great as well!  Here is to another amazing year!

    Julie - Beautiful photos! But the one that stood out most to me was the water birth. This photo gives me chills. What an amazing moment to capture! Perfection!!

    Lilly - Hey – we made the cut! But I think that one of the four sets of bare feet in (and above) the sand was my all time fave. OK, the bad-ass girl with the light saber is pretty darn cute. All of it is lovely work though, as usual.


It’s not often I drool while working on wedding photos, but man, the food at Julie & Kris’s wedding was nothing short of amazing!

Have you hired a caterer for your wedding or event yet? If not take a look at Vibrant Table, they do amazing work, nice people, and it is always delicious! As a consumer of wedding food most weekends during the summer & fall, I have experience.:)

Only downtown weddings get you great cobble stone streets and tall buildings as backdrops.

I actually just dropped off a  sample album of one of my favorites 2010 downtown weddings to Bridgeport Brewery. If you want a small urban location to have your wedding it is an amazing place! Kayla & Jason held their 10.10.10 reception there, and it was fantastic! Barb the events manager is simply awesome. They are also great for rehearsal dinners! If you visit make sure and ask Barb to see the beautiful sample album of Kayla & Jason’s photos! I am so happy with how it turned out.

    Kayla Gep - Man, those are some pretty people. ;-)


Jaime & Datton had one of the most amazing wedding events I have ever had the pleasure of capturing. And yes I say event, because it was not one day, but THREE. Starting with a beautiful private ceremony you can see here, followed by a traditional Vietnamese ceremony you can see here, and then ending with a super fun reception you can see here. I had an amazing time working with these two, and I loved reliving it via the album process.

Here it is!

I finalized it this week for print and thought I should share. I am so excited to see it in print, there is something about holding an album I just adore.:)
