I saw this video today on YouTube and had to share it. I sometimes come up with quirky ideas and am told “no way, it will never work” or “that’s too risky”. This video proves to me that you can be different and everything will work out awesome.

I love this email. They haven’t even seen the images from their wedding and I feel like I’ve just received a big hug.
Just checking in with you and also wanting to thank you for the being so fabulous on our big day!! We received many compliments from friends and family regarding you and the nice job you did. You made us feel so comfortable, and you were very professional. We are so excited to see the photos! I have no doubt they will be awesome!
Thanks again Kim, you are so great!

This wedding was so incredible – quaint and beautiful at Dan’s parents home in Highland Park, Illinois. There were so many details I was in love with that I couldn’t choose the photos to blog…so this will be a bit longer than most. (Click here to see the slideshow with a more complete story).
Bridesmaid dress was a Vera Wang.
Hair was designed by Angie at Via Venuto in Highland Park.
The musicians were Michael Gallagher and his brother Tom from Chicago. (Fabulous vocals and guitar – at one point I thought I was listening to an IPOD – it was fantastic. Desirae also told me that Michael toured with Oprah in Europe…he is that good!)
The florals were from Art Quest in Highwood.
The tents were supplied by Indestructo in Des Plaines.
Michele Grossman of Designed Cusine assisted in the planning of the wedding and was also the day of coordinator. She also did Dan’s sister’s wedding 4 years ago at the Newberry Library in Chicago. (She comes highly recommended by this family.)
They had passed hors d’oeuvres for guests before the ceremony began along with pink champagne.Michael Gallagher…simply outstanding.
I randomly came across this sunflower field a few miles from my house. I dressed my girls up and made them hike out to it with me so I could snap a few photos.I love being a mom…they are so sweet and they’re growing up too fast.
Wow – I’ve never seen anything like this before…
I don’t think I’d want my guests to “unfurl” my dress for 3 hours! Would you?
While I’m writing this post my memory jogs back to when I was a kid. I remember time passing so slow – I couldn’t wait for the school year to be over and summer to start. Then summer became boring and I wanted to go back to school.
I’ve continued to receive numerous requests for portraits from my Colorado Facebook Fans…which thrills me to announce my first “Portrait Marathon” in Denver!
I will be doing nine family/individual one-hour sessions at Wash Park in Denver on Saturday September 12th from 8am to 7pm.
This one-hour portrait session is $250 with an added BONUS of your favorite 20 images on a hi-res disk for FREE. This gives you the freedom to re-print your own photos and cards for the upcoming holidays and is an excellent way to save $$$.
Space is limited…contact me soon to choose the time slot that works best for your family!
