this day was classically beautiful.

it’s those moments i live for. behind closed doors that not everyone gets to see. as leigh faught to hold back the tears with every stroke of mascara.

i want to tell their story through an image in the best way possible.

several years ago, over the summer i went swimming & the chlorine turned my hair bright green. not cool.

that’s where megan came into my life. her magic hands cleared up the problem.

over time & after many visits to the hair salon, i got the news that she would be packing up & moving to hawaii.

we kept in touch through FB.

more news came that a fine young man swept her off her feet. a visitor filming on the set of pirates of the caribbean.

i didn’t think much of it until i actually saw him in the film. blew my mind.

i wasn’t able to make it to their wedding. though i wish i had.

SO now, they live happily ever after in london.

they came back to seattle for a visit & i captured their love.

can only imagine what was said.

back home to her adorably chubby cat. oh man. what a crack up.

it’s a glorious thing. to see this girl do what she does best. let out that voice for the world to hear.

we both found our passion in life. we can relate.

the sweet smell of the rain. feet soaking wet. frizzy hair. together we made magic.

so as i blog, with my headphones on…i listen to jessie sing.

you know you want to hear that lovely voice of hers as well. you can do that, here.

it’s just as important for me to build a friendship as it is to be your photographer.

not only did we spend hours shooting, we ended up grabbing a bite to eat, enjoying a night on the town. i love when that happens.

i went home feeling like i made a friend. with a big ol’ grin on my face.
