It’s late and I’m exhausted, but I can’t stop thinking about these two and Sedona, and all the magic in those red rock mountains. ♥️♥️ Did you see this Sedona shootout on the blog today? I talk all about telling the truth in photographs and some behind the scenes struggles leading up to this shoot and how it was all 200% worth it. 🙌🏻♥️

Somedays, I can’t believe my luck. I get to do my dream job in a small town surrounded by mountains. I work with my sexy handsome husband, our dog, and two cats. I get to travel and have great friends. I have a place to call home, food in the fridge, and I get paid to celebrate love surrounded by flowers. It’s pretty much the cat’s pajamas, this life of mine. AND I AM SO THANKFUL.

Other times, my body betrays me. I have painful health issues and a body I don’t always like when I look in the mirror. I may never have children, I may never run a marathon, and I’ll certainly never look like the girls on TV, because of this body of mine. This body that gave me the life I love, It’s a blessing and a curse, enough but never enough all at the same time.

But I guess that’s life. We all have our things. I’m not going to let mine stop me from living my best life. And I hope you’ll join me.
I’m realizing that the above sounds like the first part of a pitch to sell you something from an MLM (smoothie/wrap/meal/oil)… but it isn’t. It’s merely an attempt at saying, even though sometimes I hate my body, I’m not going to let it stop me from doing the best I can. And you deserve the same! …can I get an AMEN?

So here I am at the palace of Versailles feeling like a Parisian GODDESS and baring those thick thighs that carried me all around France last month like a QUEEN. ♥️🙌🏻💃🏻 _____________________________

Their paths crossed… literally… on Thanksgiving day in the mountains.

They each took the holiday as an opportunity to head out into the mountains of Colorado for solo hikes. The trail forked and she went one way and he choose the other.

The snow was starting to fall when Lee decided to call it a day.  He was heading downhill after enjoying a day of hiking in solitude when he reached the place where the two separate trails merged into one.

It was at that fork that his pace brought him awkwardly close in step to the only other person in sight. Lee was wary of this stranger interrupting his mountain serenity, until she started talking to him, sunny and cheerful, like only Lauren can be, and Lee was all at once intrigued by the pretty girl suddenly walking beside him.  They walked the rest of the trail together, talking and laughing. Wondering at how strange it was to find another person, with so much in common, in such a remote place on such an unlikely date.

They reached the end of the trail all too soon, to find that snow had piled onto the roads.  Lee lived nearby and invited Lauren to join him at his place for drinks. Lauren was skeptical of this handsome stranger since she was alone in the mountains. She said no, she probably had better head home, and they parted ways.

Lauren got into her car and started kicking herself for not getting this handsome mountain stranger’s phone number… or even giving him hers.  She started precariously driving her car down the icy, snow-covered canyon road, wondering if she’d ever see him again. As she reached the bottom of the hill, Lauren found Lee waiting for her, making sure she made it out safe…. and folks, the rest is history! ——————————— Incredible stories and people like these that fuel my fire for this profession. Gosh it’s just magic and I hope you can see it in the way these two look at each other. More of them and more of this on the blog today.

Yesterday, I made a cake for an evening with friends and there’s something wonderful about creating for people you love. It’s what I like most about my job as a wedding photographer. Oh... and the cake isn’t so bad either. 😂

Hi Friends!
Happy Friday and Happy SPRING! For all the new followers, welcome! It’s time to make a friendly introduction. ————— My favorite days include adventuring and taking photos of people in love, chocolate chip cookies, nerdy LOTR references, walks with Elvis🐶(our English bull dog), and cuddles with the hubby on the couch. I’m crazy about telling love stories and documenting 👰🏼 weddings because it allows me to give longevity to the good things in life. Most weekends you’ll find me 📸weddings or hiking in the snowies🏔 with Jake & my ever present messy-bun.👱🏻‍♀️ Today I'm gearing up for a busy weekend! —————- I look forward to getting to know you more, so leave a comment and introduce yourself. It’d make my day!

For a long time, I thought I hated Arizona. How wrong I was. Turns out the desert is magic and I'm in love.
