A Wedding Photographer at Work

Sometimes it’s hard for me to describe why I adore photographing weddings.  The gooshiness of love and pure joy of getting “the shot of the day” just isn’t enough.  It’s something you feel while photographing.  One of my fav wedding photographer’s video proves and visualizes this all in one.  This is why I love my job.

ps – check out more from the video creators – Cana Video Production (Ben Potter and Drew Barefoot).  If they aren’t the ‘it’ videographers yet they absolutely will be.  AMAZING.

Greetings from San Francisco!  We arrived this past Saturday night…whew what a long day of travel (did I mention we had 2 cats with us?!?).  Today is my first day back to the grind of photo production :)  I won’t be fully set-up with my equipment until our movers arrive in a week and a half or so but doing what I can until then! We had a great day of apartment hunting and bbqing yesterday.  Might have a great San Fran apartment in a couple days!  Will keep you posted!  But in the meantime, letting you swoon over these amazing prints from Ork Posters!  We received the green one above as a gift  this past Christmas and finally looking forward to hanging it up!

Yup, that’s right…I left it and I brought it back!  We are officially headed to San Francisco Saturday the 18th, long day of travel ahead with all we could pack and carry (plus 2 cats) on an airplane.  This week will be devoted to apartment hunting.  No stuff until a lease is signed…SO I ask your patience with me as I will not have my files with me for a while :(  Also, don’t forget Renegade Craft Fair is THIS weekend at Fort Mason San Francisco!!

J and I drove out to California once a few years back, what a time that was!  It was the first time I witnessed the fields of wind generators and desert tumble weeds :)

Happy Friday!  Whew, it’s been a crazy day already!  Last weekend, I had the pleasure of traveling back to Chicago for a product shoot and portrait session.  Isn’t Calleigh cute?!?!?

Shhhh….can you hear the blog crickets?  Yup, it’s been a while, sorry!!  I traveled back to Chicago last Thursday for a product photography shoot, mixed in with friends and ended with an adorable baby photo session!  So I’m back in St. Louis for a few days now.  On the agenda this week – fabulous photos from my shoot with Paperly and Calleigh with a couple splashes of packing, organizing and stressing ;)  Thanks for the image above Frank & Colleen and for my reader’s patience!!!!  Btw, we officially fly into San Francisco this Saturday evening!
