How do I introduce a couple like Emory and Alison? There really is no way I can think of. . . . No words to explain their generosity, grace, passion for one another, intense love for their friends and family. I’ve no way to articulate the way that even as strangers, when you’re with them, you hope you’ll be friends forever. And really, I hope we will. Emory and Alison, a million congratulations and then a million more. You truly are made for each other. Namaste and aloooooha! I love you! Enjoy!

And ummmm. . . there are a lot of images. You might want to, I don’t know, grab a sandwich or something. ;)

How could you not drool over these next two? LOVE.

I loved Alison’s relationship with her sweet brother. They reminded me so much of Gavin and I. . .

I’m so in love with this next series. I wish they were my family so I could justify framing them in my home! These images just make me SO HAPPY!  

I love this next shot by Alisa*; it might actually be my very favorite of the day. There’s so much beauty and truth here. I feel like I could reach out and touch it.

Alisa also shot these next two flower shots as well. LOVE THEM. Just a side not, having a RELIABLE second shooter along, is essential.  It alleviates so much of the burden of feeling like you have to be everywhere at once. A second set of eyes is worth its weight in gold, as it allows me to put my focus where it SHOULD be, on the bride and groom.

And then we PARTIED. . .

And they lived happily ever after. . . naturally.

*A HUGE, HUGE, HUGE “mahalo” to the WONDERFUL Alisa Greig for second shooting and to BFF Lindsay for keeping me sane and carrying my pretty bag. Honestly, Alisa gives photographers, friends, mothers, WOMEN IN GENERAL a good name and Lindsay, well, she’s simply irreplaceable. Truly, a bosom friend.  I love you both!
