Craziness, Travel, and Doing What I Love

'm in New York City right now, trying to soak it up. You know, it. The chaos, rush, and exhilaration of palpable electricity. I think that's what my life has felt like these past few weeks. A mix of so many things, yet I'm trying to find ways to soak it up. Last night we walked into our hotel and somewhere in the madness of this city, a hum of hope rang in the darkness. Okay, maybe I didn't hear it, but I felt it. And for this, I'm thankful.

Here's a sneak peek of last Saturday's wedding...a complete edit will be up soon, but this moment (just after the ceremony, when the groom had a quiet moment with just his bride) made me feel the hum of hope can be seen, as much as it is felt.

Brooke Summer Photography - That is one of my most favorite moments in a wedding - right after the ceremony!  11.14.11 - 12:47pm
Aisha Mujib Khan - The smile on his face is very sweet. Is she intentionally wearing a ring on her mid knuckle? I always want to do that if a ring is too small, but I never get around it.   10.30.11 - 9:10am

Letitia - Thanks Jasmine! Your lens selection is fantastic. I've rented 16-35 lens and fell in love with it. It has awesome bokeh for portraits and I love how you can play around with all the fun angles to make it look semi fish eye. I look many pictures o my dogs and loved how it made their snouts look larger than they really appear. Also took beautiful cloud formation shots.   10.28.11 - 12:01am

meg manion silliker - to be able to work alongside your husband is a true blessing. makes those hotel rooms less lonely and you both must boost each other up - everything from jet lag to tired feet from a day of shooting!  10.27.11 - 2:01pm
Indiana Wedding Photographer - I love those little moments. Sometimes things feel a little desperate or stressful... and then you're entrenched in this feeling out of nowhere that things really are good... and you'll truly make it through. It rejuvenates the spirit and will to carry on with what you love.  10.27.11 - 12:57pm

Lena Messana - As you are in NYC, I am off to VA! I so wanted to see you this weekend, but my schedule did not allow it. :( Maybe next year when I go to Cali!! :) I will be in the LA area the last week of June. I would forego a day at SeaWorld to attend a workshop! :) I hope there is a possibility!   10.27.11 - 10:45am

Kim - Love this photo. I love the idea of the bride and groom taking a moment to pause right after the ceremony - just the two of them. I think it's funny that you are from the LA area and you see New York as chaos. I'm from the Midwest and see them both as chaos but in very different ways.   10.27.11 - 8:43am
