More film goodness on the blog this week! I helped style and shot this beautiful couple back in December is snowy, cold Chicago. It was SERIOUSLY cold the day of the shoot, so a special thanks to our fabulous couple who did an amazing job snuggling and keeping warm! Also, thanks to my dear friends and “Italy Girls,” Melissa, Molly, Jen, Yazy, and Katie. I met these girls at the Jose Villa workshop in Italy in the fall of 2009 and I am so lucky to call them friends!

Adios dearest friends! I’m headed out of town from Saturday, November 6 through Sunday, November 14. My first stop is Mexico for the Jose Villa Workshop. Oh yeah, I’m so excited! I went to Jose’s workshop last fall in Italy, and it changed my life. My business has improved and changed is so many ways and I met some amazing friends who I connect with practically every day. Like, we plan reunions all over the country, and email, and tweet, and Facebook, and Skype. These ladies are amazing, but more on them coming after our Chicago reunion in early December! :-)
Many are probably wondering why I’d go to the same workshop again… well, there are many reasons, but the main reason is that I’ll be shooting exclusively in film this time around! I’ll definitely be blogging a workshop summary and images, so watch for that in coming posts.
After the Mexico workshop, I fly straight to Jacksonville, Florida to second shoot a wedding with my awesome friend, Melissa, who I met at the Italy workshop last year! Pretty cool, huh? Melissa came up to Minneapolis over the summer to shoot Anne & Noah’s wedding with me (which was featured on Style Me Pretty!), so I can’t wait to work with her again. I’m also excited for warm weather, friends, relaxing, learning and shooting a ton of film! Many blog posts are sure to follow.
While I’m gone, I will not have telephone access and email will be delayed. Thanks in advance for your patience!
PS- Just because blog posts are boring without pictures, here are a few of my favorite shots from Italy last fall!
Oooh, please excuse the extra long post, but I absolutely adore this so-in-love couple and their beautiful wedding. I guess it’s the small-town girl in me, but I love barns, nature and rustic farm weddings! M&P incorporated so many special, handmade details and everything about their wedding was picture perfect. Megan & Patrick are teachers and how cute was it to incorporate a school bus into their wedding day?! But, even more importantly, beyond the details, it’s always fun to work with a couple that is so head-over-heels in love! It was my first time shooting at the Enchanted Barn in Hillsdale, Wisconsin and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to shoot there again. What an incredible venue!
Thanks to M&P, their friends and family and vendors for a wonderful wedding day!
I love me some Adara & Luke! Not only are the bride and groom fabulous, but their wedding party and family and friends equally as awesome as they are! I had so much fun the entire day and the wedding party kept me entertained with their Lady Gaga moves (see below)!!
