A Luce Loft wedding dream: Teal and Derek

Some weddings make you fall deeper in love with your craft.  Teal and Derek wow'd me.  It's nothing I can put into words but I hope that I've put it into pictures.  Their spirits are so magical and finding each other was equally magical.  Maybe one day I'll be able to tell all of you how they had a meditation at the wedding ceremony or how Teal sang for Derek but I think it would take me weeks to be able to say it all, so for now here is a beautiful day that I'm still smiling about.

joyfully waiting to be one more — maternity portraits

I first met Katie when she was a guest at Alicia and Adams wedding years and years ago.  She has the most amazing personality and ease.  I admire the way she is with her girls and how she manages to pull things together and let the moment be - at the same time. 

When she reached out for a maternity session and said she wanted to include the girls as well I was so happy.  These two sprites??? are full of love and laughter and on this day many many songs.  Soon there will be 3 little ones.

Engaged Jen and Tyler

It was so fun to meet Jen and Tyler at their engagement session.  It's been fun to get to know these two on the phone and via email but finally I got the real deal.  I loved how fun and supportive they are of each other and how much they value creativity.  They are getting married at Underground Elephant as well.  I'm sure their guests are going to have an epic night.

Wahoo Suzanne

A photo walk around North Park with the Estrada family

Every time this crew says they are ready for pictures my heart explodes.  I was at a party at Eddie and Lindsay's house a million years ago and Lindsay was gushing over her new girlfriend.  The smile on her face was the real deal.  Then later that night her new girl walked in and ... it turned out to be my friend Justina.  Yup.  It was a moment.  So fun.  And in between this day and north park and that other day in Hillcrest over a decade ago there has been the sweetest most inspiring day and so many other loved ones that have joined their story.  Here are a few gems about how much I love them.
