Kamie + A.J. Wedding

It’s not everyday you get to capture a good friend’s big day.  Kamie could not have looked more stunning.  From her beautiful unique gown that fit her like a glove to her amazing hair and makeup, she could not have been more beautiful that day.  She and A.J. make for one ridiculously cute couple, one magazine companies would probably swoon over. The love these two have for one another was definitely felt that day, and it was a true gift to capture it.  Congratulations, Kamie and A.J.!

Tulum, Mexico

Loved recharging the batteries and finding some much needed R & R with Dave in the beautiful Tulum, the cutest little Mexican city where the beach and jungle meet. It was the perfect mix of beach relaxation and adventure. Eating at Hartwood, Arca, hiking the Ruins, and swimming in Grand Cenote (pronounced suh-no-tay) were some definite highlights. Tulum is perfectly bohemian with the cutest decor and uplifting quotes scattered throughout the town you ever did see. It didn’t hurt that we had authentic Mexican food er’day. Love our adventures together.

I also write down in my iPhone everything we do on vacation each day.  It’s fun to look back on, and it’s helpful to send to friends who may want to go there.  I’m not too big on planning each day to a tee because that’s just not how Dave and I roll, but I definitely scout out TripAdvisor and talk to good friends who may have gone to these places for helpful tips and things to do.

Perhaps what I loved most about Tulum was how natural, beautiful, and simple it was.  The boutique hotels were so darn cute and unique, and many of the restaurants operated with no electricity because Tulum is a little bit off the electrical grid.  Our hotel had air conditioning and electricity, but it’s just some of the restaurants on the jungle side of the playa road.  It’s super cool though because the chefs cook over a wood fire stove, making everything taste amazing.   If you need to get away from the craziness of life, Tulum is definitely your spot.  :)

Shular Family

This family is indescribably awesome, and I could tell this immediately by meeting them for the first time for this shoot.  Little Sally and Big Brother Tate were the perfect mix of silly and cute, which made for some carefree, genuine images.  Of course, it’s important to get a few conventional, more posed family shots, but I really think I live for the sweet candid moments where families can let loose, be comfortable, and let their personalities naturally shine.  Katie and Travis, your family is awesome.

{Also, please note the awesomeness of Katie and her daughter’s hair!  Winners of the Best Hair Award go to these gals.}
