Engaged: Cecilia & Sam

Posted by on May 27, 2009 in Beloved | No Comments

Sometimes couples just get “it”. They love each other so much and aren’t scared to just let go and be themselves for me. Cecilia & Sam are one of those couples. You might remember them from these images this past winter. Well, it turns out that they were newly engaged & looking for a photographer. I’m so happy that Cecilia answered my call for snow pictures and that we now get to shoot their wedding. Seriously, I got chills editing these images. They are just so happy to have found each other, and it shows. Here are a few of my favorites…

Look how adorable these 2 are together (in case you forgot)

I think the feeling is mutual, Cecilia loves him just as much back 🙂

I love snapping when I’m setting something up. You never know when you’re going to catch a genuine expression 🙂

Another one. I never could have told them to hold hands like this.

Being a photographer is the most amazing job in the world. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else with my life. We get to freeze time when we press our shutter, capture moments that will never happen again, and bring joy to the lives of so many people. What I’m going to share with you all this evening was the coolest event I’ve ever gotten to photograph.

On Wednesday, April 23, Tasha was going to be induced and I was invited to capture the experience for them. This was going to be a new experience for me. I mean, I have kids of my own, and I was in the delivery room for both of them (and I didn’t pass out, whew:), but to be capturing the birth of another couple’s child was…let’s just say that I felt honored to be included. I could go on and on about how cool this was, but right now, I feel that my words are falling short of what I really feel about the birth experience, so please, enjoy the slideshow!

I called this a Just for Fun session because that’s what it was:) Eliesa was one of the photographers that attended the Anti-Workshop with me. We did this shoot outside of Bally’s on Saturday afternoon right before I left Vegas. Her husband, Judd, was hanging out with her the whole time and we thought we’d have some fun with them. We had a few other Anti alumni, but I can’t remember who all was there. Give me a break, I was working on about 3 hours of sleep:)

Post-processing note: I have been working on a cross-processed look that I really, really like, and I finally found it, and this was the perfect shoot to try it out. What do you think?

Eliesa & Judd totally worked it for the camera. I’m sure our paths will cross again one day!
