Sweet Love

"I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said one that would make me his wife."
-Author Unknown

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking a few hours off from my busy Saturday at work to do an engagement shoot for a local couple.  I had posted several ads on Craigslist to try to bring up some new business.  I have to admit that I was a little bit nervous about this new attempt . . . but I decided to depend on my instincts when talking with potential clients and hope that all would go well.  This engagement shoot was the third "craigslist client" that I have had and all three have gone pretty well.

Anyways - I was excited to find that this latest couple would really challenge me as an artist.  The bride-to-be wanted creative photos that would portray art, and not just two people standing side-by-side.  I was also a little discouraged when, after looking at my website, there were only one or two samples that she really liked in my galleries.  However - I think they will be happy with the end result.

I wish my best to this beautiful couple...maybe I will be back in a few weeks :)

I had to prove that I am indeed still alive and hanging in there well.  So - after a long editing session, before going to bed and getting up to put in at least 10 hours at work all over again in the morning, I am going to quickly link up with Sunday Social.

1. What is your favorite thing about spring?  I LOVE sunshine - being able to be comfortable outdoors - oh! and the smell of fresh cut grass!!

2. What is your favorite kind of flower to grow or receive?  I haven't grown any flowers since I the marigold kit I got for probably my 10th birthday.  But I love daisies and lilies!

3. What is your favorite nail polish color?  I love OPI nail polish - I have a bright pink one that is probably my favorite "color".  However, I love the look of a natural polish with white tips.

4. What is your favorite outdoor activity?  3 way tie: taking pictures; camping; laying on the beach

5. Do you have any fun spring plans?  Road trip to San Francisco to visit some friends!! (that is the main thing getting me through busy season...)

Okay - I REALLY am trying to get some pictures up from my recent couple of shoots.  But first, I HAVE to finish editing them and get them off in the mail to the waiting recipients :)  Goal for tomorrow night.....
