Bridal Shower - Check!

We were fortunate enough to knock out two bridal showers in one weekend. I had to share a few photos with you from our shower this past Sunday, Dustin is so interested in the gifts (he's a good sport).


Day at the Lake

I spent little less than a week in my hometown recently finishing up some wedding planning. I had the chance to take a few photos of my parent's 6 month-old lab at the lake one evening. I love watching her jump in, if only my 4 year-old bichon frise would take the plunge... :-)You can see more here.


skinnylaminx: mugs

Lovely ceramic transfer mugs from skinnylaminx.


Wedding Wednesday: Napkins

Have I mentioned how much I love the Gocco? Last night I printed about 250 cocktail napkins with orange/aqua ink and am so pleased with the results. Another check-off on the list :)


Engagement Session: Barbara & Nathan

A dear friend of mine is getting married in January and I offered to take her engagement photos..so this past weekend we headed up to her grandmother's farm and started shooting. They were great sports considering this was my first real shoot with people other than Dustin and my dog :) You can check out a few more of my favorite shots here.


A Bridal Luncheon.

Despite the fact that I'm the one getting married, by default I usually design/create/send most of the invitations surrounding the wedding events. I definitely don't mind it, it gives me an opportunity to experiment and create a piece that is completely what I want. Above is my bridal luncheon invitation.


Wedding Details

Completed another project for the wedding yesterday. Thanks to the doilie punch from the Martha Stewart craft line, I have this cute sign to hang above our cake table :)


for the love of light.

Got my For the Love of Light: A Tribute to the Art of Polaorid book in the mail the other day. I love it. It is so satisfying. I also received a postcard and original polaroid print, and the whole package was all worth it.
