Priya + Raj : : Married!

On Friday, Jen, Darrin and I rocked Priya and Raj's fabulous wedding all day long (and I do mean all day...16 hours!). It was an incredible day full of celebrating, beautiful color, and most importantly, Raj and Priya's love for each other.

Look for a preview post later this week!

The Johnson's : : Family Session

: : When planning for this session, Lisa had just one requirement...snow : :
: : As of this morning, there was none and we almost rescheduled the session : :
: : At noon, the snow came, and Lisa was one happy mom! : :
: : I've been taking Eli's pictures since he was a newborn almost three years ago now : :
: : Eli is always such a ham in front of the camera. Love this little one! : :


As I sat around the Thanksgiving dinner table with my family I was reminded again of all that I am thankful for. I hope all of you had an amazing holiday and that everyone had a chance to reflect on all that we are blessed with each and everyday.

: : My adorable mom and Tanner. She's going to kill me for posting this : :

: : My contribution to dinner...Godiva chocolates and fancy cheeses : :

Priya + Raj : : Mendhi/Sangeet Party

I am feeling bad about neglecting my blog this week so thought I would give you a little sneak peak into the ceremony that Jen and I photographed last night for Raj and Priya at Crossroads Banquet Center. Their big day is Friday, and Jen I will all be there to photograph the celebration!

The party was full of dancing, food (oh the food!), and celebration.

Enjoy the pictures and Happy Thanksgiving!
