Hello!!! It's been way too long. Between getting settled in a new home, new husband, new life and the fact that I reached my storage limit with google and I will have to fork out actual cash to keep this blog running I just sort of let it sit idle for a while. I am considering switching to a different location but I haven't found the time to research and work on it just yet. Forgive me. I know I left you hanging with no wedding photos. I did start to upload a bunch when I finally got my eager hands on them and that is when I discovered it was going to cost me. I don't know if any of my blog-land friends are still going to check in. I apologize for my absence. My new obsessions of home decor and cooking and teaching a kindergartner to read have overtaken me....and I love it. :) There have been many times I've thought of sharing these new obsessions with you. I wanted to share so many of the awesome thrift store finds, fantastic recipes, and the struggles and triumphs of life. I do miss you all. I miss your photos and inspirational quotes and fabulous fashion and most of all the real moments you've shared. I also really miss sharing photos, heck I miss taking photos! My camera is collecting dust. Shame on me. So I am deciding, right now, as I type, that I am going to get off the pot and get my blog up and running again.
In the mean time.....
So you recall that finding the right wedding photographer was priority numero uno for me. I had a long list of potential and once I started really digging into finding someone we could afford and had that look and feel I love I discovered that there really weren't any local photographers producing my style. The closest I could find were Southern Cali, Washington, or Oregon. I reached out to a few to discuss cost for travel etc and as soon as I heard back from Jaquilyn I knew she was the one. She was the only one that responded with a personal touch asking about how Devin and I had met and she seemed genuinely excited at the possibility of shooting our wedding. She and her husband are an amazing team out of Tacoma, Wa. They have a great eye for composition, detail, and a true gift at capturing those must have moments. They've got a sweet style that fit my vision for our wedding. When we finally got to meet them in person on the big day they were even more adorable! I mean seriously, all of my bridesmaids were in love with Jaquilyn. They did a fantastic job, I just love looking at our wedding photos. Every time I do I fall in love with them even more. So since I can't upload any to share just yet here is a link to her blog post about the wedding. Please take a look and enjoy! Also check out some of their other work, specifically the birth story of their adorable daughter... so stunning and touching.
I hope you are all doing wonderful and 2013 is treating you kindly thus far.
I'll be back sooner than later, promise. ;)
