Sorry I’ve been MIA the past week! It’s been a doozy of a week with back to school & even more, a tragic loss.
Last weekend my brother from another mother’s dad passed away suddenly. I drove up to UT for the weekend to attend his Celebration of Life & to support my friends in their grief over their dad. It was a really tough couple of days! To see these 3 men I’ve known & loved for nearly 20 years so heartbroken, broke my heart! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Their dad was a big part of my life for a lot of years & even last fall when I was stuck & needed a ride to the airport last minute, Jeff was there & more than happy to take me. He even stopped to get me coffee & some breakfast on the way! He was such an amazing person! He was a total smart ass, so funny, kind & generous! He also raised 3 of my favorite humans! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jeffro, you’ll be truly missed by all who knew you! Gone too soon, but NEVER forgotten!

Tahnee & Kirsten’s surprise backyard wedding was a gorgeous and intimate day. I had such a lovely time with these brides as they welcomed me into their home for the weekend to capture their special day before taking off for a whole year around the world. I can’t thank them enough for having me pop over to Sydney for this one! Safe travels, ladies 💕

"Some of the best moments from the day entailed the ring warming ceremony and hearing from each of our closest friends and family during speeches. It felt like they all each helped craft our marriage in their own ways. The champagne tower and serving champagne to all of our guests was also a hit – with the entire guest list.
As day turned to night there were plenty of memories made on the dancefloor. Amanda’s brother even choreographed a dance as a gift to us, the newlyweds.
We’re both really glad that we did a small, self-uniting ceremony. It felt like we were taking that step into marriage together."
Their wedding day is up, over on the blog 👉

This is truly a bittersweet announcement ! A lot of thought and consideration went into this and I firmly believe this is the next step in the process. Photography and Videography is something I’m genuinely passionate about if you couldn’t already tell. Nothing better than having these moments to look back at. Happy to have a team consisting of @bashmaj & @ant.nazario. True professionals. With that being said, I would like to formally introduce @anecdote.productions ! 🎥📷 Your go-to production company for anything photo/video related.

Simultaneously, I’d like to retire @victorio.photography .
I’m still smiling. Yesterday was beautiful and magical! It was such an honor witnessing this wedding. I love these ladies!!!! Congratulations @jmjewett and @ch3ls3aann thanks for running around with me in the evening light and dancing around like wild woman! #heywildweddings
I’m too sexy for my shirt... so sexy it hurts #nowayimdiscodancing . . .
I knew I loved Forte (on the right) when he came to meet one of my all time fav foster puppies - affectionately know as Fatty - and he just sat down on the floor and happily let every dog at my house jump all over him. He adopted Fatty, now Rama, and just a few weeks ago he and Hayden adopted my favorite kitten from my recent east side cat rescue to be Rama’s buddy, Dennis (aka Lucifer 😂). They make the best, kind-hearted animal loving couple and I couldn’t be happier for them!
“I think the journey we went through made our day extra special! There was quite abit of uncertainty around family situations, so to celebrate our wedding with all of our loved ones present, felt amazing and meant to world to us both!
Being visible for people of color is so important for us! Hopefully, individuals that are struggling to love/accept themselves, will be inspired to trust in their journey and be true to themselves and not succumb to family/cultural pressures!” — @_pslovewins
Congratulations on a beautiful celebration of your love, Pamli and Sarah! 💕
