Colorado living, that’s what we’re doing now. We flew out to Denver on Friday for a wedding, then yesterday spent the day mentoring a Denver photog, which is always a good time. So it’s safe to say we’re in a good mood. Today we are relaxing at mom’s house, watching HGTV and are about to head out on a walk, BUT not without posting the blog first. We thought since we’re in Colorado mode that we’d share images from our wedding we shot here on Saturday. So here you have it, meet Brittany and Aaron.
Brittany contacted us in March of last year, she knew she wanted to work with us and even picked her wedding date around our schedule, we loved that our work resonated so much with them and that they were willing to do what it took to get us to their wedding. Brittany explained to us about how she had recently lost her ability to smile due to health complications and now that she has been healed she LOVES to smile. She said “our wedding photos are so important to us because it’s an incredible blessing that I am able to smile again and we are so excited to capture this sign of our joy on our wedding day.” YES, we love it! It was so obvious that these two get it, they get what it’s like to work through struggle together and to remain joyful because of it. We knew we had to do whatever it took ourselves as well to be there at their wedding. So, here we are, in Colorado, having witnessed an intimate part of another couple’s story, a beautiful couple, a lovely story, a perfect day. Brittany and Aaron, thank you for being not only a dream to work with through the whole process, for making us feel welcomed and loved, but also for allowing us the honor of telling your story. Your love for each other and everyone around you is inspiring, and Brittany, you’re radiant so keep on smiling girl! xoxo
And Monday is upon us again…aaaaaand we are STILL traveling. Quite the whirlwind we’ve had the last two weeks (as I’m sure you could tell from last week’s blog post). Today we have found ourselves on the last day of our trip. Sitting here in the lobby, glass of wine, olives, free wifi, all necessities for a good blog post just before heading to the airport in 20 minutes. Home is calling our name. But before we head out, we thought we’d share the second leg of our trip. After NYC we got a train to Boston for a few days, where we walked the freedom trail and ate way too much italian food (yum). We then caught a bus, to a boat, to Nantucket island where we explored for a few days (yep, we are definitely buying a scooter when back in SD) and finished it all off with the amazing wedding of Katie and Mike.
Oh man, Katie and Mike. Words cannot express. Their wedding was A-mazing. they rented a house on the bluff in the little town of Sconset. It was the perfect combo of floridans, new yorkers, scots and brits AND it was epic (who doesn’t love a man in a kilt eh?). Katie and Mike, as I said to you already, once you book us for your wedding we’re in for life. Yep, so be looking forward to lots of NYC visits, Swift’s Bar trips, and adventuring. We adore you..we are SO happy for you and your commitment to each other and we look forward to many adventures in the future (including us of course, duh). And with that I leave you to the post…we’re off to hit the skies because home is calling our name. Muah! (all pics except those from the wedding taken via our iPhones).
Cars, planes, subways, trains, taxis, and boats. Yep, that pretty much describes our last two weeks. The wedding season is upon us and Rico and I officially in travel mode. Last week we had the amazing opportunity to head down to Valle de Guadalupe for a little getaway to celebrate Rico’s 30th bday. wooooooooo, old man Rico! You guys, this trip, it was amazing. We had most of our closest friends/family there with us and it was several days pool relaxation and amazing wine (and chilaquiles…yum!). It was heaven and I can honestly say my heart hurts wishing it could rewind and go back to last week. (not to worry though, because you’ll be hearing more about this trip at a later date, exciting things happening and possibly a video in the works. whaaaaaaaat? indeed).
Even though I want to go back to last week, right now we are sitting on a train riding through New England en route to Boston after having spend several days in NYC, so I can HARDLY complain. On thursday we caught a red eye to NYC, shot an engagement session upon arrival, yes, on zero sleep but we love Conor and Julia so it was worth it (seriously, love you guys!). Then we wandered around the city, had the best vegan donuts of our life and pizza in Brooklyn, exploring with our new friend and fellow photog Sidney Morgan, and shot ANOTHER lovely engagement session for Hayley and Rory…and that brings us to now. We’re headed to Boston for a few days and then will catch a ferry to Nantucket on Wednesday for a wedding we are shooting there this weekend. SHEESH. How lucky are we? We get to see and shoot amazing people and visit amazing places, we can’t complain. So today’s post is dedicated to our travels, Mexico and NYC are the only places shown here because the trip isn’t complete, so you bet you’ll be seeing some Boston/Nantucket goodness soon enough. In the meantime, from Mexico to NYC it is!
