Yikes….so it’s been over a year since my last post. I suppose life changes is the best excuse I can give lol. Since last summer, we moved into new apartment, I started a new part-time position with an awesome company, traveled more than ever with Asa, reevaluated where I wanted to take photography, left the part-time position, invested in a totally-left-field family business venture, and craziest of all, we got pregnant. That might explain why blogging was on the last thing on my mind. Although all these things happened at a quicker pace than I’m used to, I’m sooo grateful for it all. And now that things have slowed down a ton, I’ve realized how much I’ve missed writing on here.
Enough of my personal rant. Let’s get into this beautiful wedding. Nancy & I attended high school together and although we were in the same class & shared the same last name, we didn’t get to be the closest of friends. Well fast forward almost a decade and here we are, she picked me to share in one of her most memorable and intimate milestones. What a freaking honor…

I remember coming across this moody image in mid-January & decided to plan my very first* styled wedding shoot. (*I’d attempted an inspiration shoot two summers ago, but realized very early on that I needed to allot more time to researching & planning.) So this go around, I told my good (and super-duper organized) friend Jessica Park about my ideas & she immediately matched my excitement! With her help, we began our hunt for local vendors who would be interested in the collab. First came the beautiful model…then the florist…& before we knew it, we had an amazing team behind us.

When you’ve got talented creatives surrounding you, I believe you’re able to experience next-level artistry. I was so inspired by what everyone brought to the table. With all the fun, joy & crap-load-of-stress that came with it, I could not thank the team enough for lightening the load. Everything went so well & I couldn’t be happier with this set.
