{LOVE} A SIMPLE BUT STYLISH AFTER WEDDING SESSION…

how gorgeous is this after wedding session from Kristine of

MADE TO BE MINE

here’s what Kristine had to say about this session:

“I met Syd and Zach years ago, when I was shooting my first wedding, a wedding for Zach’s brother.  They had just gotten engaged and I was hooked.  I saw Syd’s luscious red locks and Zach’s tattooed limbs and I knew I had to have them.  You know, in front of my camera.  They didn’t hire a professional for their wedding, insert sad face here…but then Syd messaged me.  She wanted to do an after session with me, in their wedding duds, I couldn’t have been more excited.  When she emailed me I was shouting on top of a MOUNTAIN excited!  Syd and Zach are my first official couple since I decided to completely change my focus to only lovebirds…and let me tell you, they are perfect.  They are crazy in love with each other, gorgeous, stylish, and they love me just as much as I love them…it’s a match made in photographer heaven. “

many thanks again to Kristine for sending this to share.  you’ll want to head on over to HER BLOG for more of her latest work.  you’ll probably get lost for a few hours on there.

{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 52…

before i reveal this week’s confetti throw fridays, i would like everybody to take note of what this family is going through and hope you can do whatever you can to help- even if it’s just spreading the word or donating $10.  this wedding industry community has been known to rise and band together to help anyone in need.  and this wedding photographer and his family could sure use some strength right now.  i  have been fortunate and blessed to experience what “every little helps” truly means.  take note that for japan with love and for philippines with love did not raise as much money because it was people donating $1000 at a time.  with for japan with love, there were over 1,400 individuals that donated to raise that large amount.  and it’s ok if you can’t help financially, sometimes words and presence are even more comforting.  i’ve had my fair share of dark days this past year.  the amount of emails, text messages, facebook messages, instagram comments and tweets got me through a lot of those.  please in whatever you can, take a moment to read their story and send them your strength.  click HERE to read about Bobby, Lindsay, and Clive.

ok so here we go… confetti throw fridays no. 52.

BENJ HAISCH

 (there aren’t words to describe this one except you just need to go see the rest.)

before i sign off, i touched upon this briefly on the facebook page.  but this week we lost an incredibly kindhearted and talented soul.  he has touched generations and will continue to do so through his films and shows.  he gave life to one of my favorite Disney characters of all time and played a nanny that i wish was mine.  he truly was one of a kind and there will be no other like him.  he truly will be missed.  o captain, my captain.

just a reminder to be a little more compassionate each day.  you really don’t know what others are going through.  have a fantastical weekend all.
