Self-Portrait | March 2014

People have all sorts of responses to stress. Some people eat.  Some people stop eating.   Some people drink.  Some people work out.

Me?  I sleep.  A ton.  And let's just say I've been averaging 10-12 hours of sleep per night and I'm still worn out.

I'm focusing on trying to reduce my stress level in 2014 (I seem to be failing miserably, huh?), which required me to make a change to my day job work schedule. Unfortunately, the transitional phase has me working six days a week, while shooting every Saturday, and it's about to do me in!  Luckily, I only have one more month to go and the end result will be well worth it AND leave me more time to focus on my photography clients.

In the mean time, if you need me I'll be in bed...

Addison + Caleb {Wedding}

I'm exited to have one of my favorite couples back on the blog today! You might remember Addison and Caleb from their elopement last spring, or maybe from their family holiday photos this past December.  This time I have the honor of sharing with you photos from their wedding/vow renewal ceremony, which took place at the gorgeous Ocotillo Golf Resort earlier this month!

As always, these two were awesome to photograph and I'm honored that they keep inviting me back to capture more special moments in their lives.  But instead of me babbling on and on (again) about how much I adore Caleb and Addison, let's get right to their photos because they've already waited way too long to see some of them!


The beautiful bride...


The handsome groom...


I couldn't resist posting this photo of Addison's sister, Taylar and Caleb.  I just love the fun relationship these two have!...


And who can resist children all dressed up?!  A-dor-able!  These two are Caleb and Addison's nephew and niece...




On to the ceremony...


Addison's mom, Vickie, performed their ceremony again, like she did for their elopement...


The ceremony was full of so many sweet, tender, moments...



And a TON of laughter!  I can't even tell you how in love I am with this image of Caleb!...










I can't really say why, but I just love this photo of the two of them looking back at something one of their guests called out to them as they were walking back down the aisle...


After the ceremony we took a few minutes to take some portraits around the gorgeous golf course...





These two are so in love with each other!  It's amazing to witness them together and see the love they share...






I just love these on the bridge!...




This is a favorite...


And so is this...


We then rushed Caleb and Addison back to join their guests at cocktail hour, where I captured some photos of their guests enjoying themselves.  Here are just a few random ones that I couldn't resist sharing:


How sweet is this?!?!...



LOVE this one!...


We then headed back out to take a few more portraits of Caleb and Addison.  We were hoping to grab some sunset shots, but Mother Nature wouldn't cooperate.  So, we had to grab some with the awesome moon Caleb spotted, instead...


I adore this!!!...


Look at that gorgeous cake!...


Addison and Caleb's first dance...



Father/Daughter dance...



Mother/Son dance...



And how could I resist posting this one?!...


Addison and Caleb, As always, thanks for allowing me to capture these memories for you. Congrats and many wishes for a lifetime of happiness together.
