Photo Shoot

Celebrating 10 Years Together

We kept tradition alive and did our annual anniversary photo-shoot yesterday on the actual day of our anniversary.  And tonight we’ll celebrate with a proper dinner date!  I think we should celebrate all weekend…

10th Anniversary

This year’s location was an easy choice; it’s our favorite Thursday date-night location.

And you can see a few outtakes after the jump…


picture perfect

A few weekends ago I had the privilege of shooting some family friends for their daughter’s annual birthday documentation and upcoming holiday card.  They make it too easy!  Seriously — of my first 10 frames I think 8 of them were ready to be hung on the wall.  They give a whole new meaning to the phrase “point & shoot.”

And I can’t believe that little nugget is 4!  See last year’s right here.

Summer Lovin’

Although summer has officially passed, I’m reliving a warm humid day in central Texas where this little couple let me spend some time shooting them on their watermelon farm.  This is the story of young lady whose name has the word “mellen” in it, who met and fell in love with a watermelon farmer!  (That will never get old for me!)  The best part is that their relationship is bound to be a pseudo Green Acres — but oh the things we’ll do for love!  We shared in their engagement party last weekend and will witness their nuptials in just over a month.  So glad summer is lingering just a while longer.



8 is great

I can’t believe that we are celebrating our EIGHTH anniversary today (and that we aren’t together!)  But in the spirit of tradition, we did another self “photo shoot”, but individually this year.  And it’s completely campy and silly, but you know, that’s kinda who we are.  As much as I have romantic notions of looking like something out of a progressive music magazine being all intense, sexy, and mysterious…  it’s just really not who we are.  We are however, madly in love (still!) and we like to have fun.  (I mean, come on, my two favorite comedies are this and this — what do you expect?!)

It’s been fun for the last four anniversaries to capture something that is going on at that time in our lives.  I don’t think they are defining moments, but just us being present.  (Somewhat like this entire blog!)  We will change and grow emotionally (and physically!) and I hope we can continue to capture these wonderful moments — and not ever take ourselves too seriously!

Although we are 5,000 miles apart, I always carry you in my heart!
