Pete & Diana- Black and White

While editing these I thought hmmm, I have more black and whites then color for this blog post....maybe I should just do an all black and white post this time! So I did, and here it is :)

loved the hoodie!
Both Pete and Diana's dances with their mom and dad were incredibly emotional. I was completely watery eyed the entire time! Trying to take pictures in the dark with your eyes blurred from watering is not an easy task!

Michael & Hannah's backyard wedding

My good friend, Jenny, contacted me a few weeks ago to tell me that her brother was gettin hitched, and in just a few weeks. They were originally going to get married on April 10th. I was already booked that day, and was super bummed that I wasn't going to be able to shoot it. They moved the date to the 17th...I was available, so I was of course super stoked to be a part of the day.
They decked out her parents backyard and had a super cute, super sweet, little wedding with just their very closest friends and family. It was such a beautiful wedding and such a beautiful couple!

Here are just a few of Michael and Hannah's Day....enjoy!

I love this "first glance" series. Hannah snuck up behind him...both crazy excited to see each other....and then so much emotion and love at the sight of each other :)

This incredibly gorgeous bouquet was made by the one and only Courtney Tibbets of After The Engagement
Courtney is a super talented local wedding coordinator and also Jenny's best friend since elementary school :)
The cake was flippin adorable!!

Hannah's family was not able to be at the wedding, but her sister sent along this special wedding day package for Hannah. Her something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. She crocheted the "new" pouch that all the goodies came in....gave her the "old" Destiny's Child key chain....let her "borrow" her angel key chain....and the "blue" garter was their mothers, who they lost in June of last year. It was so sweet to see all of these items that her sister so carefully thought and and sent for her :)

Michael's dad walked her down the aisle!
I forgot to mention that Courtney was also the can see her little black headband there between them ;) That Courtney is a one stop shop!

Jenny, Michael, and Courtney!

Courtney brought along her famous "photobooth". I had heard about this, but had never seen it in action. Let me tell you...this thing is RAD! If you are considering a photobooth at your wedding....definitely check hers out!!

A candle burn throughout the night for those who are no longer with us.

I was contacted about a month ago from a seller on etsy regarding product shots for her new shop "Poppy Sprouts". I went to check out her stuff and happily agreed to dress up my baby girl and take some quick shots of her modeling the clothes. Please check out her shop and pick up a few cute things for your little one.

Pete & Diana- #1

These two are seriously two of the sweetest people I have ever met! Their wedding day was so relaxing, fun, and filled with love....I really couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! I first met with them almost a year ago. Diana had seen some of my pictures on someone's facebook page and looked me up. Come to find out we both know a ton of the same people.....the weird thing is that these people I know from all different places and times in my life!
Pete is originally from Australia, so they are currently on their way there for their 2nd reception with all of his family that couldn't make it. I picked out just a little of everything from their San Diego wedding, so that his family can get a little glimpse of Pete & Diana's beautiful day!

Many more to come....enjoy!
