Oh MAN! Where have I been! My blogging has been terrible lately! I have 5 weddings in 5 weekends and I promise I will be posting A LOT in the next several weeks!! I photographed Brittany’s bridal portrait session on Friday at Messina Hof Winery… I can’t post her bridals until her October 16th wedding… but I CAN post a picture of her fabulous shoes!! Hopefully this will tide you over!
The Wedded Bliss is a local magazine based out of Tyler and surrounding Dallas metro area and it is an amazing resource for brides to use to help plan their wedding day! The Wedded Bliss features tons of brides wedding details for future brides to draw creative ideas from! I am completely honored and blessed to have a portrait of Ashley Otto grace the cover of the 2010 September/October issue! Ashley… You are stunning!!
Here is a two page spread of details from the amazingly talented Barbara Tidwell with La Tee Da Flowers. Barbara… it is such a pleasure capturing your works of art!! You are brilliant! Truly! Working with genuine, passionate, talented, fun-loving artists like you make me thankful that I am a part of this industry!!
Here is an impromptu post for ya!I am in California right on a short little stint of photo shoots… two of which were with Bridget Marquardt & Katarina Van Derham (I’ll post those pictures as soon as I can. I know they are more exciting than pictures of me.. haha!) BUT… while I was in Los Angeles a couple of days ago, Katarina opened her home to me and made me feel like I was a part of the family! She is not only a drop-dead-gorgeous and talented model/actress (see a sneak peek of her photo below this post)… She is also an amazing…. AMAZING makeup artist.
Katarina’s fiance’ is a photographer as well, so she “doll’ed” me up and Deja took some before and after photos of me for her website… If you know me at all.. you know that I normally do not like being in front of the camera! So I got a little taste of my own medicine! haha! I’ll see if I am brave enough later to share the before/after photos…but for now… I wanted to share these with you! They were taken with my iPhone… Katarina & Deja… You made me excited to be in front of the camera! I normally cringe at the thought! haha!
One of the things I adore about my job is that I hopefully can help people feel beautiful… In a world where nothing is ever good enough… where we will never be thin enough, tall enough, pretty enough… I think we forget sometimes… Thank you for making me feel so beautiful! :) You are truly talented… and I feel so honored and blessed to have had this opportunity!
SO excited to share the rest of these with you guys!! I had the amazing opportunity to work with this fabulous couple today and HAD to share this sneak peek with you!!! Katarina and Deja… You guys are AWESOME!! You make my job SOOO STINKIN’ EASY!!Check out her website here… You can also view her work as a makeup artist at www.makeupbykat.com.
