I met up with Shannon and Anthony where they met, Trinity University. We had a blast discovering the little spots all around campus. They brought along their adorable dog, Niner, for a few photos too!! Here are my favorites from their session.

You may remember the lovely Allison & Brian from their comic book store engagement session a while back (how FUN was that, you guys? Seriously…) It was at their engagement session that we learned about Allison’s quirky style and fun personality. (And don’t think we’re forgetting about you, Brian! You’re pretty gosh-darn fun yourself!) These guys brought that same fabulousness to their wedding day – every DIY detail was adorable, and there were fun pops of color all over the place (we lurrrve us some color, as you know!)  :-D Here are our favorites from Allison & Brian’s wedding at Sisterdale Dance Hall. Enjoy! :-)

A bride and groom being silly and having fun on their wedding day? Love it! Relaxing and having fun in front of the camera is one of the best ways to show personality in your wedding photos… And it happens to be tip #11 in our “Wedding Photo Tips” post from a while back (check out all of our tips here!)

I met up with the fabulous Brittany and Derek at the gorgeous St. Anthony hotel. We started out with a few casual photos nearby, before they changed into their Great Gatsby inspired outfits. We explored the beautiful, new restored lobby of the St. Anthony. Here are my favorites from their unique engagement session!

I can’t believe that I am writing this post. People say “Time flies” because it DOES! My son is graduating from high school!!! Last week, we went downtown to take his senior photos. Such a fun time for me as a mom and as a photographer. I am so proud of Alain. His brave and joyful spirit, his persevering hard work and his love for life. Your smile lights up a room and lights up our life.  We love you!
Our family :)
