Karie & Cam {married!}

I knew this wedding was going to be a dream when I first met these two for engagement pictures!   They were so easy going and relaxed, and pretty fun to photograph.  :)  This wedding was scheduled for July, but Cam called me in March to tell me that he got the call.  The call to active duty with the US Marines.  The wedding needed to be bumped up, and I was more than thrilled to accomodate.  Even though the planning became a bit of a bumpy nightmare at times, you wouldn't have known!   

When I first walked into their gorgeous new house the morning of the wedding, I was so blown away by the details of this wedding!   It was seriously a wedding photographers fantasy land.. and the greatest thing, these two didn't seem to notice!  I know Karie put in so much thought to the look and feel of the wedding, but she was so relaxed and looked past those details to enjoy the most important part of the day.. her brand new husband!  

Between the groomsmen serenade, the wonderful speeches and the sword arch, it was an extremely special day!  They were wonderful hosts, enjoyed every guest and seemed to soak it all in!  One of the greatest privileges as a photographer is to give them lasting memories.. even though they were completely absorbed in their day, they will love looking back and remembering all the details! All the many, many details!

And yes, I took a million pictures of the shoes... no apologies here! :)


And of course... the wonderful vendors!

Grace Nelson {newborn!}

Grace is here!  She's the newest member of the wonderful Nelson family that I photographed a couple months ago.. and she is sure sweet!  Her gender was a surprise so Anna and Jeff (and little Henry!) are still getting used to the fact that pink and lace and accessories galore are now a very important part of their home!   She's not shocked by it at all.. :)

Enjoy the preview and your sweet new babe!
