Lalo+Vi - in a stunning night of calm, peace and FUN!!!!!!

I was verrrrrrrrry excited to be brought in last minute for this wedding.  This is one of my new interns passionate about learning photography and what it will take to make things happen.  I've never met someone with the passion to make things happen like this woman.  It just so happens - I tossed her into a wedding - in which she had no knowlege - no experience....and she came out overwhelmed and learned a lot!  Just the fact she had the courage to do it- reminded me of me.  Sometimes you just gotta DO IT!  Anyways - back in July she was still a bride-to-be and actually taking "notes" at the wedding.  But here she is now, on the other side - the BRIDE and GROOM got married yesterday...and they celebrated all night!  Enjoy some teasers!

A brief moment in between wedding/reception - AH beautiful!

Exploring their room at the NYLO

As the night was closing down - I stole this light moment.

I think this was my first official Catholic wedding, so being far away was difficult, but manageable!
I hope yall have a WONDERFUL DAY!!!!!!!!!!
It is time to have some great down time...and go see a movie with my husband!

The Memorial Bride...

In my short sweet trip to DC - to see my lovely friend...(and fellow BLUE MAN GROUP lover)....I was able to see her perform in Batala, see a baseball game and then drop her into a wedding dress for a casual photo shoot involving some *monumental* areas. :)
a quiet moment, where she didn't know i was shooting...just yet. :)

another moment, in between moments.  I did have to photoshop a light pole out - it was just in the way, no matter what.
making our first walks towards all the monuments....but i saw this tree....

beginning, at Jefferson - again - removed light pole that came out of her head. :) 

A sweet moment at Lincoln - but please, the reflection pool was DIRT! omg!

another pretty moment walking through the FDR memorial....
We visited all sorts of locations, moving around - walking around.  Probably walked a couple of miles and hurt a little after, but WHAT FUN.  What city do you live in?  What can you explore around you that you have not before?  Go out, and play!

Reaching for your dreams!

When reaching for your dreams...there are so many things that will come against you, distract you and move you off the path that you were trying to walk.

The question is: How long will it take for you to find your way back?

Who knows, it is different for all of us i'm sure right?

For me, these days I'm starting to re-embrace the things that God laid out for me.  The desires of my heart for many things are bubbling up to the surface and every step of the way I'm fighting for what I want and making things happen.  I am carefully navigating the waters of the things I know I can say yes to, and the things are a *no*. :)  At some point during our lives, we have to say NO.  Also, at some point, we have to stand up for ourselves.

I find myself doing this more often.  Communicating who I am, what I want to do and where I would like to go!  I say to those doubters WHY NOT!  I say, let's get going and have some fun while doing it!

Think about your dream for a moment...where have you gotten off track? Where have you found yourself?  Are you even dreaming anymore?  Are you doing the things you want to do...or the things you only HAVE to do?  Are you growing?  Are you learning?  Are you making a difference?

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.
I challenge you to make a small list of things you want to do...and then pick one and go do it...THIS WEEK!  Obviously, make it a realistic goal - but don't fear to dream big!

Talk soon.

Oh, and don't forget - I have some specials up right now!
Here are the flyers!!!

Finding me. Finding Light. - all in Grandma's bathroom.

I made a quick and fun trip over to see my Grandma this weekend....and to pull up double fun - we did a mini party for my mom's birthday this coming week. :)  What I found when doing my makeup in the bathroom was the strip lighting on the sides and how it popped into my eyes.  :)  I thought to myself, man - I need to capture this.  But really, I ended up capturing a little more of me. :)

Grandma's Bathroom - me in Black & White (the only time you will see me this way) and then in Technicolor.
Again, finding the light in the bathroom...I see something I don't see often...amazing catchlights! That, and my effect turned my eyes 2 different colors. I think it looks awesome! HAH
After a great day with family, we ended up in the Art Alley and I reached out for the wave.
another image...with great catch light greatness...I grabbed as many as I could to join me in the bathroom to capture the eyes.  It is harder than you think....and this was probably about shot 4 or 5 i guess? :) 
Also, took my family into the bathroom...and decided to list off words to express part of who they are
and their gifts within!!!
