Moments

August 29, 2011

It’s something you’ll never be able to get back no matter how hard you try. You can’t replicate it. It’s history. I moment in time. It’s a moment, a treasured piece of your life. Hold the moments dear; treasure them, live them, remember them.

It Begins With a Dress

August 15, 2011

I don’t know too many brides who don’t get their dress as the first piece of their wedding. The dress does make the bride after all. The dress is striking…the bride, well, she is breathtaking:)

Kermie, the Green Xterra

August 12, 2011

 

I had a Jeep Liberty named Lucy for 7.5 years. In June, I was hit by an SUV and she was totaled. I loved that Jeep. There really isn’t a replacement for a Jeep, especially since the new Liberty body is horrible ugly! The next best thing…my new green Xterra. It has to be eccentric, different…loud. I’m an artist- it’s my nature. So…meet Kermie:)

It’s a touching note of wish and wisdom that tears me up. How simple and precious this wedding wish is.

Old Love is the Sweetest Love

July 29, 2011

We tend to get rid of things when they are old. We’ll consider them not as valuable when they lose their novelty and sheen. But some things get better with age: cheese, wine, love. When love stands the test of time, of hardships it gets stronger. It just looks sweeter. When you’re brave and strong enough to make a commitment and stick to it- that’s endurance.

Annie-Beth & Joe: Cincinnati, Oh, Newport, Ky Wedding Photography

July 18, 2011

Annie-Beth is eccentric at heart. Her public union to Joe could only be laced with eccentricity. Blues and grays were woven throughout her May wedding day. From her high heeled blues to the blue hydrangeas and the blue water of the aquarium. The day was overcast and threatened rain. To everyone’s jolly they were only bluffing! Those clouds were just enough to keep the sun from beating down and heating up the park. Alt park in Cincinnati was in full bloom. Annie-Beth and Joe were married under the ivy woven trellis in the Garden of Old Roses.

I’ve enjoyed all receptions but this one was the most unique! The Newport Aquarium was opened just for their guests to enjoy all the animals. Simon the penguin came out as an extra special treat for anyone to pet. The banquet room was aglow in purple and blue. The Cincinnati skyline shown brightly through the floor to ceiling windows. Annie-Beth and Joe’s families were so warm and welcoming. The room was full of friends and relatives form London, KY and Lexington. It was a most beautiful day. Thanks for sharing it with me:)

Emily & Brandon: Lexington, Kentucky Engagement Photography

June 8, 2011

Emily and Brandon are one of those couples that are best friends. They are two of the nicest, easy going people I’ve met. Emily’s cute southern accent exudes southern charm;) I love it. I had the most pleasant evening shooting with them. I can’t wait for their “green” wedding at the Carrick House in July.

Here’s Emily’s story on how they met and how Brandon proposed:

Brandon and I meet in January 2006.  We were hired at a law firm on the same day as Runners for the firm.  I was a senior at Georgetown and Brandon was a senior at UK.  As soon as Brandon and I began working together, I knew I was going to marry him.   After the law firm closed each day, we would have races around the law firm picking up the shredding for the day.  Brandon would go one way around the office and I would go the opposite way.  Each day I beat him, even though he will never admit that.  I thought if we have this much fun picking up shreddings each day, then I want to spend more time with him.

In May 2006, my best friend was getting married.   For her bachelorette party, we spent a weekend in Hilton Head.  As my friends and I were walking on the beach one day we were each talking about who we were going to marry.  I told my friends that I was going to marry Brandon Green.  At the time, it was very far-fetched.  Brandon and I weren’t even dating and I wasn’t sure at that time if Brandon was even interested, yet in my mind we were meant to be together forever.  My friends thought I was crazy.

In August 2006, right before I started my first year of teaching, he asked me out on a date.  He treated me to a delicious dinner, was a complete gentleman the entire night and I knew he was the man I was going to marry. After a few more dates we made our relationship official.

In July 2010, my mother sent Brandon and I to Hilton Head (for what I thought was a celebration for me finishing my Master’s Degree).

As soon as Brandon and I got to Hilton Head, we headed to the beach to watch the sunset.   As we were walking, on the very same beach where I had pronounced I would marry him (when I barely knew him) he pulled me away from the ocean, got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.

On July 2nd, 2011 we will be getting married! 🙂
