Vintage Je ne sais quoi | Danny & Ashley




10

I met Danny in high school; we were in the same awesome class of 05. Lol, maaaany interesting moments in class with this guy. He was perty darn cool and always so nice, so it only makes sense that he'd find a fiance to match :) He and Ashley were so fun to work with; easy-going and precious as all get out.

We started out in search of an old run-down store that I'd seen before, buuut alas it was plastered with No Trespassing signs. So we drove back to where we'd seen some hay-bales and lo and behold, THE cutest little old man was out planting and showed us the down-home Southern Hospitality worthy of a country song. He totally let us take pictures all over his yard, which turned out to be a GEM. It had everything we ever dreamed of having in a shoot like this.

So I was a bit excited about getting this one up, lol. Every once in a while, someone will come along with an idea that makes me step out of the ordinary, and I LOVE doing that! This time, it was Ashley's hankering for a vintage look. Lol, kiiinda went to town with that whole theme, and I've gotta say that I had an absolute blast, ON the shoot AND editing it. I got to try out several different looks of cross-processing...we'll see if any hit the mark :)

We were about to leave, and went to thank the man one last time. He was SOOOO sweet, and even pointed us to his "perty, shiny 'n painted right nice" tractor. So we closed out the session on the good ol' sentimental hoorah.

L.A. Wedding | Emily & Rob

Cheers to my first destination wedding! :) I was so privileged to be part of Emily and Rob's wedding weekend in Pasadena, CA. I was good friends with Melody, Emily's Maid of Honor, who introduced us last year and voila! It was such a fun time; I knew a few people in the area and got to catch up with them as they also knew Emily and Rob.

They were married at The Lindley-Scott House, an amazing and picturesque location.

As luck would have it, it was sunny the day before and sunny the day after, but the day of, plenty of Heavenly blessing rained down upon them. :) Not to be thwarted, they had a beautiful wedding anyway, and rolled with the waves in their reception location.

They were so easy-going, sweet, and wonderful to work with! And without further ado, a preview! Good luck in the future you two :)






To start off the festivities, I tagged along with the girls to 21 Choices; an AMAZING frozen-yogurt place.
