a cold winter’s day. a farm. an orchard. these two love birds.

las vegas, nv // 2013

and a few from some disposable cameras + iphone:

s’more milkshakes. secret pizza. diplo. unicorn mask. 25 cheeseburgers from in-n-out. new friends. old friends. 7 people in a prius. a wyn on my lap. no ticket! a fake marriage. a real marriage, too! so. much. confetti. pool timez. desert shoot. #nojudgement. #nopants. so much laughter and love. vegas.

i spent the past few days in vegas for a photography convention (wppi) and i’m sitting here and my heart is feeling so full. i miss everyone so much. these are probably the silliest group of photos you’ll ever see on my blog. none of these photos have anything to do with weddings (other than the fact that we’re all wedding photographers), but i need to post them because of how refreshed and loved i feel after this trip. friendship is a wonderful thing. most of my favorite people live in various parts of the country and we finally all got to meet up and hang out. it’s something i look forward to all year. it’s hard to accurately describe how i’m actually feeling right now. mostly thankful. thankful that i have these people in my life. thankful for all of the new friends i met this year. and thankful for how inspired they all make me feel. seriously, i love you all so much. xo.

there’s just something about the beach in the winter time. the only thing you can hear is the waves crashing. you’re the only one on the beach. it’s a huge contrast from the beach in the summer. there’s just something so romantic about a deserted cold beach.
