Looking back to the summer wedding of Mark and Laura at the Link at Union Vale. I had WAY too much fun with this couple. They were more like friends rather than clients. I knew within the first 15 minutes of shooting their bridals that if I had to go home after that moment, I had my grounds covered. Their happiness and willingness to do whatever I wanted, made it easy to shoot some killer images.
Note…the clouds are real, not painted in and yes, the bride loves Disney!
I love photographing this family, I look forward to it every year. This year I thought let’s try something different, “mind if we drag a couch to the back field” I asked. “Oh sure,” they said. I figure Momma and I are both crossfitters, we could handle the task, but the gents at the house were kind enough to take care of it. Barn + couch + wood fence + beautiful land + lovely family = photographer heaven.
This boy had some smooth dance moves…
This has been a very difficult year for some of my dearest friends. For the last 14 months my friend and neighbor Andrew has been battling non hodgkins lymphoma and on January 4th, 2013 we lost him to this terrible disease. My heart is completely broken for my friend Linda and her boys. We lost him too soon and life, however I am so grateful for the six years that he lived next door.
I want Andrew to know that we will take good care of his family. She has a strong support system and so many people who love them and are willing to do whatever it takes to make everyday a little easier.
For those who wish to donate to the boys and their college fund, please check out this link: http://www.andrewmctiernan.org/
I also invite you to take on a personal challenge this year, to donate blood or platelets. During Andrew’s battle, he received over 35 bags of blood product. It is our mission to help others in need, by giving the gift of life. Please consider joining the 50 Pint Challenge.
Farewell my friend…
