We Shine

This was a wedding I've been looking forward to for a long time. I've known Janell for almost ten years as a coworker. She used to sit right beside me, and during that time, I really got to know how awesome she is, (and about her flair for unintentional double entendre!) so it was really special for me when she asked us to shoot her wedding.

The sun was shining almost as brightly as Janell, and it was an absolutely gorgeous day for her and Dan to begin their new life together. Knowing Janell, it's not even a cliché to say that these two will make beautiful music together. We wish you both all the best!

Good friends withstand distance

As I mentioned in the previous post, Matt and I met up with one of my good friends, Chris and his wife and two kids. I've know Chris from the first grade and we've been friends as long as I can remember. Sadly, we don't get to see each other too often because they live in Florida but every time we do get to meet up with them, its like we see each other all the time.

Since their children are getting older they asked us to do a quick shoot for them and of course, we couldn't say no! Madelyn and Aubrey are adorable and were very cooperative.


The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter. Just saying those words give me chills! I'm a HUGE Harry Potter Fan (as is Matt) and there was no way we could not go to WWOHP while we were down in Florida.

The Sunday after my sister-in-law's wedding Matt and I went to Disney's Boardwalk to meet up with a good friend of mine (more on that in another post) and after saying goodbye to them we headed to Disney Marketplace to go to one of Matt's favorite stores... The Lego Store! Harry Potter and Lego??? Yes, we're big geeks!

The next day we got up extra early to get to the Harry Potter Theme park located at Islands of Adventure in Universal Studios. I was so excited to be immersed in everything HP and I wasn't let down! The place is amazing and if you are a fan like we are, I urge you to go as soon as you can.
