…:what we do at APictureLife in a nutshell:…

Latest

b + a

it’s fitting i decided to blog these two today, because it’s brandon’s birthday! happy birthday, brandon.

i had the best time with these two. they showed up to my office and asked if we could change locations… they thought it might be too far. i put up a small fight and got them to agree with me. so glad i did.

aislynn picked the best outfits for both of them with solids and prints. complimenting colors and not too matchy matchy.845362

j and g

she has the sweetest most infectious laugh and a smile that can light up any room, this mama to be is going to rock motherhood.

i’ve been there from engagement to wedding and now almost baby, it’s reasons like this that i keep my client base small. having a personal relationship with each of my couples means i am there for them to celebrate all of their adventures, milestones, and greatest moments.

tim + skyler : bacara resort

can’t say enough great things about tim and skyler. their personalities, their friends and families, all around good people. the kind of wedding you want to be a guest at, especially when the entire reception jumps on the dance floor and sings “piano man” as a group. the last time i saw this all of the men sang with their pants on the ground, thankfully not this go around:)3011324119681012147

nothing, absolutely nothing i would change about this one.

ali + brandon

 there are several things I have learned about ali since meeting her a few years ago….

she loves hash tags and uses them frequently

 she loves starbucks and drinks it daily

she has been in more weddings that i have photographed than anyone i know, ever

she has the greatest group of friends, as you can see with her 11 bridesmaids

 and mostly she is head over heels in love with her hunny, brandon.

the count down to the day she would finally be his wife started on august 8th, i think… 

at least that’s when the facebook count downs started.

i’m guessing it started closer to the day they first met through their friend 

either way, these two are perfect for each other.

as for brandon

well if i were to go off of what his brother said during his speech

he would jokingly describe his 4 minute older brother as “an a**hole, too”

thankfully we all know he was joking

(it was actually one of the sweetest speeches from a brother that i’ve heard in a long time)

it was obvious in his brothers speech that he was proud of brandon as is everyone around him,

 proud to call him his twin, proud to stand by him on the #bestdayever

it was a special day for me to be a part of.

will + lill: married

do you ever find that sometimes couples are just flat out hard to be around?

i do.

i know that if i am around couples who fight/bicker/talk poorly about each other and are flat out disrespectful

i get moody. it rubs off on me and i hate it (i’m guessing so does brent)

so it’s refreshing when i can spend time with couples who

truly love being around each other.

case in point: will + lill

they have a mutual admiration and respect not only for each other as individuals, but for their relationship.

to put it quiet simply…

they are kind to each other.

it was an honor and an absolute pleasure to photograph these two and their families

you see in both will and lill’s parents how these two have learned to love in such a beautiful way.

it’s my hope that more couples learn to respect each other and find the happiness that will and lill share.
