I didn't realize how much photographing weddings would make me have a true appreciation for things in flowers. Example 1: flowers... I love these shots. I adore most flowers I see at weddings!

a few angles...

Kristen shot this of me shooting Megan

... and this was the result,

... all the while she was getting this:

I love seeing what other photographers see in the same scene/photo. Can't wait to post more!

Happy Memorial Day!!!

Brandon and Megan were married last night at Old Waverly in West Point, Mississippi. Desite the rain and wind, the whole day was a party, and the wedding party was a blast!

Here's a sneak peek. More photos will be coming soon... Aren't they such an attractive couple?

Is that room not just ridiculous? I love the beautiful lighting and wood floor.

And a last shot from Kristen of the bride and groom leaving with Mississippi State Shakers. Thanks for a great wedding!!!

a few of my favorite things...

Is there anything better than a really yummy salad: fresh lettuce, cheese, a little dressing, with some newly cooked chicken? NO.

I love my new mirror in the kitchen. I wanted the green wall to be a "frame" for something cool, and I love how it turned out.

2nd shooting...

It's been a while since I did any second shooting, and I enjoyed this wedding with Kristen. My dear friend, Lauren, was one of the bridesmaids, and some of the photos have her in them. Enjoy! (She's great!!!)

As for future second shooting, I may get to go visit Melissa Jill again and shoot with her. Hopefully!!!

Oh, and Vegas photos coming soon...

take a step back...

If you know me at all, you know that I really live my life non-stop. Some of that is chosen; most of it just happens to me. I am horrible about enjoying life, stepping back to smell the roses (so to say), and choosing to relax instead of doing something that needs to be done.

This past weekend my sister (who is expecting a little boy) brought my niece over to take some photos for Mother's Day. Due to a few technological glitches, the Mother's Day gifts will be a few weeks late, but I love the result of what we got. Not only are the photos stunning, they are a complete surprise. It's hard to get good photos of kids you know well!!! It was also another reminder to me to love life and love well on a daily basis.

I love this little girl. No, the word "love" isn't strong enough. I can't describe it.

poor computer...

hello, this is camille's computer typing. at this moment, i am sitting in the back of the apple store -- waiting to be worked on. see, this morning i thought i'd be just a little naughty and not work for my faithful owner. i didn't not work all the way; i just made the screen remain black no matter what she did. after sitting in the case for over an hour in the apple store, i remained disobedient with the people at the "genius bar." now, i'll rest for multiple days until the part comes in.

i need a rest just as much as my owner does. problem is... my owner's rest usually come after finishing the work she needs to do. therefore, i am forcing her to rest, despite the fact that there is so much stuff she needs to do. she can't do it, though, without her computer. no photos, no editing software, no itunes.

and, for those mother's day presents... maybe they'll only be 2 or 3 weeks late.

random friday night

this photo has a lot of story behind it. i am known often at weddings to be the photographer who does everything but pictures. don't get me wrong... i take photos!!! i do, though, do other things. here - you see me making certain everyone is flowered well.

oh, and i do have a flower in my hair. that's not all too normal to me, but i had good reason. we had a little bit of a flower mishap x 2 at this wedding. i just couldn't let the beautiful flowers go to waste. so, i put one in my hair!

(photo taken by jessica wright)

in other news, "duplicity" was a complete let-down, but "taken" is the best movie in years.

happy weekend...

my lauren....

i have known this girl for probably 7 years now. her name is lauren, and she is so dear to me. it's funny -- we really only spend our time together at camp, but it means a lot to both of us. and, despite the fact that we don't spend a lot of time with each other, i have some mad respect for her. lauren is on the of the kindest, humblest, loving, dearest, most fun person you will ever know. i was so grateful that kristen asked me to shoot this one with her; i got to spend the ENTIRE morning with lauren (and all the people there to celebrate her brother's marriage to a beautiful bride.)

wedding photos coming soon...
