Well there have been quite a few tidbits of news lately! Having posted the second installation of the amazing Ashley and Andy a few days ago and set it on a timer, I awoke this morning to find the new post in place, which I’ve been very excited about, and also a small feature on Once Wed, an amazing blog that is a great resource for brides with great style (*and also for finding the used dress of your dreams!)! I’m so excited to be featured among all the beautiful weddings on this blog, and I’m so happy that they featured the fabulous veils of Dorene of Unveiled Bridal Designs!

This is part deaux. Soon there will be a part trois, and that will be some photos from the 8 rolls of film I took with a rented Contax 645, and I am very, very excited. In the meantime, here is some more awesomeness to wet your palate!
And of course, the amazing veils were provided by Dorene at Unveiled Bridal Designs. She’s amazing! Both of the veils featured here are custom creations Doreen made herself from a couple of my own rudimentary drawings. I left it up to her to choose the feathers, and the colors of the bronze veil. If you are looking for a veil, especially something custom, make sure you call her!
And P.S…. GO VOTE!!!!
Sigh. What. A. Trip. To sail roads in this amazing land a second time was nothing less than everything I could have ever hoped. I prayed to the photography gods… may I have sun dappling through the canopies, and fog smoldering the beaches! I really don’t know what I did to deserve this. I am in a constant state of sighing whole heartedly. It was amazing to reconnect with an old and distant friend, to see how happy he is to be with this lovely young woman. Andy and Ashley make me understand more fully, the expression about stars in their eyes. Wow. And here is some of that starry eyed loveliness, as told by the landscape of these thousands of years old trees, and these million year old pieces of earth. And this is only part one. Wait till we make it to the shore (coming soon!) I just had so many darn pictures, I didn’t want to clutter them with the sheer volume in one post. And so.
I awoke one morning in recent days, and I was moved by how quickly time has gone by. This year has been one utterly amazing, unbeleivable blur, and I am in a constant state of awe at the state of my life. It’s been a while since I’ve shared. It’s been a while since things got personal.
I’m a west coast girl in my heart. (ps. I don’t charge for travel for ANY weddings in the 48 states) because I enjoy seeing the country… wait!… I so very and deeply long for it. I like change. I like to photograph many different people, many different loves of lives, many different places in which to celebrate such pinnacle joys. Once upon a time, I drove through the most beautiful land I’ve come to know in this beautiful country of ours. And being a photographer of amazing people, I felt a bit of that longing for some amazing love to place in rectangles among the forests that are too beautiful to believe, here in the home of my heart. The great state of California.
These are my friends Ashley and Andy. I’ve known Andy since high school. I’ve known Ashley since yesterday. And what joy their various expressions for each other have brought me. Theirs is a sweet, warm, sincere and passionate love. And as I write this barely holding up my sleepy head in Petaluma, I am immersed awe. This is what I get to do. AND I have the best Husbone in the world (I miss you!). So I bring to you the first (second – though I hereby dub thee!:) Inspiration: Andy and Ashley (a preview).
