Wilkes Wedding

Fall wedding + breakfast food = my favorite! CJ and Maggie got married in South Carolina at 9:00a.m. This was my first morning wedding and it was a blast. We got to do their "first glance" shots at sunrise and it was SO romantic and the most gorgeous lighting of my life. 

The BEST part of this wedding was that I got to shoot a ton of film. CJ and Maggie really appreciate film photography and were the first couple to purchase my digital/film wedding package! And I am SO happy they did. 

Here are my favorite shots.

Taken with my Mamiya 645 Super.



Santa Teresa!

My husband and I just recently got back from a 2 week vacation in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. This place was my kind of place. It took only about 4 minutes to walk to the beach from where we were staying, so we were there quite a bit. We both learned how to surf although Nathan was a bit more, shall we say... "committed". But I did way better than I thought I would. So, while he was out there in the crazy humungous waves, I was laying in the shade reading, listening to music, and napping! haha what a life ! We both travel quite a bit so we have the packing thing down to a science, but on our way to the airport at 5:00 a.m. we realized that we had forgotten the camera bag at our house and there was no time to go back and get it or we would miss our flight! So we had to swallow it. I was  nauseous the entire flight to Atlanta, thinking how I was going to witness all this beauty without my 5D! But I realized that maybe this was a good thing, maybe I should LOOK at the sunset with my own eyes rather than behind a camera. When we landed in Atlanta on our way to our next flight, we caved and bought a little point & shoot camera at a kiosk. haha. It doesn't take very good photos, but it IS waterproof so we got some cool shots in the waves!

Vacation is so needed sometimes. Me and Nathan got to escape from life for a little while and just be together. We celebrated the best 2 years of my life, being married to Nathan Fray! We would hang out on the beach all day, then go out at night! Date Night EVERY night. It was sooo needed for my heart. So much connecting time, and so much fun.

 

Here are some shots I took with a little disposable we took with us :) They actually turned out pretty cool.

A couple of months ago my sister and her boyfriend were in town, so we all went up to the Smoky Mountains! There was still a bit of color on the trees, so that was cool.I love these two people... and I LOVE that they are together! It's so fun to see two people who really do make each other happy. I am so happy for them. I took some film up there and shot away! Here are some of my favorites from the day!
