samantha & brian

this wedding was one of my favorites of the year. the wedding was in lynchburg, ohio which is a “one stop light” kind of town. it was my first time there and i was so excited as it was not my typical ohio wedding. it was refreshing to be in such a different environment…and sam had my creative juices flowing with all her great ideas. here’s part 1 of the day. enjoy!

Wedding photography like this makes me want to get married just to hire you.

I really like the first vail shot. The colors of the flowers really brought everything together.

I am not a fan of spiders, but that photo with the web is amazing. What an interesting detail!

Goodbye Tensing Pen and Negril, Jamaica

we’re in the memphis airport waiting for our flight back home. we miss our boys and we both   know lots is waiting on our return.  i put this collage together as i was downloading my cards on the plane.  there are so many more incredible images i would love to share but here’s a few for now.

by the way, tensing pen resort on the west side cliffs of negril, jamaica was complete relaxation and one of the most beautiful places i’ve ever seen. simple, private, charming, stunning views, easy going and on and on …… it came very close to the greek islands.

Ya Mon …. 10 years of marital bliss

My husband JP and I snuck away for a few days to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.  The girls (Libby, Amanda, Nicole, Lauren, Jenna, and Katie) are all still back in Ohio holding down the fort at Blink! They are still editing, meeting clients, designing albums, holiday cards, shooting etc, etc.  Thank you girls for working so hard so I can take this (much needed) time away.  

I will return back to the studio Monday ๐Ÿ™‚
