Days like this make me appreciate our beautiful, beautiful world. And clients like this that allow me to drive 2 hours to “a big open field my boyfriend’s uncle owns” makes it all the while. Hey, we even got to see buffalo! Bison? Buffalo? Giant 2-ton animals…
Can’t wait for these two to get hitched next year!
“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.”
I made it a point this year to take time off. To soak in some good weather, long weekends, time with friends, family, my boyfriend, our dog. To breathe in that split second moment where summer has come and gone. We’re in the thick of it now, but I’m taking the time to enjoy the “finer” things this place has to offer and stepping away from my glowing monitor (which trust me, in the middle of wedding season, is easier said than done).
I’m not usually one to bring along a camera for personal outings — surprisingly, down time can quickly turn into work when I’ve got gear in my hands — but I’ve made a few exceptions these last few trips. And I’m sure glad I did.
A little personal post for ya. Enjoy.
These two get married tomorrow! I’m excited. They’re new to the Seattle are (from Georgia!) so we went on a little escapade out to Vashon Island..my home away from home. I’d love to shoot there more often — if anyone is up for a little trip over to good ‘ol Vashon…you just let me know. ;)
We danced, found warehouses, ate donuts and had a grand ‘ol time. I love these two.
