{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 58…

if you’ve followed the blog for awhile, you know i have featured some crazy good pacific northwest folks.  a good handful of them have become such close friends of mine and are like family to me.  i spent last weekend up in Seattle to celebrate Amber‘s pre-wedding to Luke, stayed with ShodaLove and his family, and got to see some of my favorite wedding photographers and meet some for the first time face to face after five years of friendship.  when you are in the company of some truly highly regarded wedding photographers, you of course don’t take any pictures because you’re terribly ashamed of how bad your picture taking skills are.  so i’m really sorry, but i don’t have any pictures from our hang outs in Seattle so instead, i really need to just shout it out to all those that came to hang out with me.

JULIE HARMSENFITTS STUDIO / BENJ HAISCH / CATHERINE ABEGG / JAMES MOES / MIKE FIECHTNER (and Bona!)/ DOROTHY HYUNH / KAREN OBRIST / COZBI JEAN / CARINA SKROBECKI / RYAN FLYNN (and Emily!) / CARLY BISH / JENNY WOHRLE / AMBER ZBITNOFF / JAQUILYN SHUMATE (and family!) / SHODA LOVE

 thank you all for taking the time to come say hi and give hugs.  you guys have no idea how much the hanging out time with you all means to me.  truly appreciate all the love and support that you give this blog daily and some since the beginning.  so grateful to have been able to spend time with you all.  *throws confetti*

and so obviously, you’ll see some PNW folks in this week’s confetti throw fridays.  so enjoy!

{ENGAGEMENT} LOVE AT HOME IN BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA…

i’m rather in love with this engagement session and couldn’t be more stoked to have the work of

GLASSER IMAGES

on the blog.  major major thanks to Quinn for sending this one over to share.

“Jadea and Drew are friends of mine, and originally the shoot was intended to celebrate their first apartment together. To shoot in the first space they share. BUT little did Jadea or I know that two weeks before the shoot was scheduled, Drew proposed! Jadea said yes on a beach on Miami at sunset (lucky girl!) So the shoot morphed into more of a celebration of their engagement! It was shot with a mix of digital, Kodak Portra 400 and Neopan 400 BW film. I hope I get to do more shoots like this in the future. It was so great to be invited into Jadea and Drew’s home, where they are the most comfortable, and happiest. It also doesn’t hurt that they are truly rad couple, donning animal masks, and showing off their new matching tattoos!”

head on over to the GLASSER IMAGES BLOG for much much of Quinn’s latest work.  you shan’t be disappointed.  so mosey around there for a good long time.
