{ENGAGEMENT} LOVE IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK…

ok so today’s post is uber special to me.

i’ve known Cynthia since she was in the 5th grade.  when i first moved to America and we were in search of piano teachers, one of the piano teachers introduced us to the Li family and we became close family friends.  i spent many a day with Cynthia playing beanie babies and when she moved into the middle school that was in the same building as my high school, we left silly origami notes for each other in our lockers.  we were also in marching band together….yes, marching band.  nevertheless, it’s been an amazing journey to see her grow up.  and i am so very excited to share the below with you.  but more importantly, i’m super excited for Cynthia and Eli and their next chapter.  congrats you two.

also they have a pretty cute dog and cat.

ok without further ado.

and thank you for throwing confetti.  and thank you, Eli for looking so happy about throwing confetti.

all this would not be possible without the major talent of

CHAZ CRUZ

Chaz, thank you thank you thank you a gajillion bajillion times for capturing these two so wonderfully.  it makes me so happy.  seriously.  when friends end up going with photog friends for their big day, i literally squeal and if i wasn’t at work when the decision was made, i’d legit throw confetti in the air.

anyways, thank you Chaz.  head on over to CHAZ’S BLOG and mosey around there because you need to and you won’t regret it.

and again, Cynthia and Eli, so happy for you two and congrats again.

{ENGAGEMENT} LOVE AROUND CHICAGO’S LOGAN SQUARE…

“Alex and Megan love everything about their city — their neighborhood, the shops, their apartment that they’ve made into a home together. We wanted to make sure that we captured their love in all of the places that mean most to them. We started their Chicago engagement session in Logan Square’s famous Bang! Bang! Pie Shop, visited the logan theater, passed through the underground of the Logan Blue Line Stop, and ended our rainy session in their home with their cats and all of the art that Alex’s grandfather gave them to fill their walls. It was a perfect afternoon.”

more than excited to have the work of

RACHEL GULOTTA

here on the blog.  and just love what she captured in this engagement session with this couple and what they loved.

head on over HERE to check out more of her work.  your eyes will be glued to HER BLOG for awhile.  trust me.

{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 36…

and all the weeks are flying by.  and it’s April already.   how is that even possible?

at the same time, only three months til my sister moves down here and i’m more than excited to have her around.  looking forward to some fun and silly times with her.  i’m so glad my parents brought us up to be so close to each other.  i don’t know what i’d do without her around.  she is my rock.

speaking of rock, i’m trying to regain some rock solid abs again by going to pop physique classes again.  over the past year, i’ve not worked out at all.  i was constantly feeling lazy and sluggish and even unmotivated to get out of bed.  i blamed it on his passing away.  but trust my coworkers to help me back up and they wanted in on a workout plan and i mentioned pop physique to them.  and it was done.  so i’m back at it again, three times a week.  here we go.

oh and so what are you guys here for today?

oh that’s right.  confetti throw fridays!  duh.

and one last one because it caught my eye on facebook and isn’t on his blog yet, but it was just too damn good not to showcase here.

GOLDEN HOUR STUDIOS

for those of you who are new to this blog, confetti throw fridays are a compilation of  images from photographer blogs i’m subscribed to.  it’s an opportunity for me to showcase each week the amazing talent that’s out there and introduce you to some truly fantastical wedding photographers.  it’s also another way for to not just be inspired by what they capture, but support and cheer on these guys in this industry.  it’s very easy to be brushed under the rug in a huge industry like this, so i find it important to constantly remind others that there is more out there and hopefully, these posts every friday help in some little way.

anyways, it’s the weekend and hope you all have some exciting plans or maybe just spend time on the couch which is also a fantastical thing too.

have a good one.
