Emma & Danny

I had a super awesome time with a new couple I am working with, Emma & Danny.  They are getting married in January and it was time for their engagement photos, and a beautiful day it was!  We went to the La Encantada mall (big thanks to Melanie for allowing us on the beautiful property) and just had a blast there!  Beautiful place, hard to take a bad picture with a great couple and great location.  Anyways, the original plan was to go to the Zoo afterwards for some more photos, but it had closed at 4pm :(   For some strange reason I was under the impression that it stayed open later, but I was wrong I guess.  We left La Encantada mall and headed downtown for some more casual type portraits where we wrapped up the evening.

Super awesome couple, great locations, what more could I ask?  Thanks again guys, you are the best!  Here’s a couple teasers . . .

Why the 4 week pause? It was worth it . . .

OK, since I haven’t blogged in about 4 weeks, many have asked me if I have contracted some infectious disease, fallen off the earth or just lost hope.  LUCKILY, none of the latter.  I’ve been preparing for and working on a project that was conceived around that same time . . . and it was such an adventure!  One of my absolute favorite couples I have worked with (and have become really great friends along the way) are Amber & Carraig.  I shot their engagement pictures back in May in the U.S. Virgin Islands on St. Croix.  WOW!  If you didn’t see their pics, do a quick search for them it’s worth it.

Anyway, Carraig’s birthday is today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!) and Amber wanted to surprise him with something unique, very special and from the heart.  Supposively Carraig is the world’s best at surprises, so she had to do something cool.  Luckily I came to the rescue with a super cool idea for a photo shoot of just Amber, and one of Carraig’s favorite things, snakes.  Yes, Amber and a large 6ft Columbian Boa.  So, unbeknownsted to Carraig, we made plans for her to fly out from Texas, arrive a day before his birthday, do an awesome photo shoot with the snake, get it printed and framed in time for a grande surprise the following day.  Whew, I had a blast and it was absolutely one of the funnest shoots I’ve ever been on.  I’m glad it’s over now because it consumed a lot of my anxiety, I couldn’t wait for it to come :)   Thanks again Amber!!!

So, in case you jumped straight to here, this is what happens when you have awesome clients that let you take complete creative control to create something electrifying:
