Laura & Richard

A few weeks ago I went to my old labmate's wedding in northern Virginia. It was a traditional Vietnamese ceremony. There was an evening reception that we were unable to attend, so I only have a few pictures from the morning ceremony. Enjoy!









Things I am dreaming of....

I really want to buy one of these adorable petticoat skirts to take cute little girl pictures like this and this. I also want to buy some cute little baby hats to use in pictures as well. I am hoping that when I go to the market this summer with my mom I will be able to find some of these things at wholesale.

I created a myspace page for my business (please add me if you are on there).

I bought a wedding dress yesterday to use for trash the dress. It was $10 at TJ Maxx. It was in the designer section of the store was originally $355, and at TJ was originally like $199, so not bad. It is a size 8, but fits me (I normally wear a size 4-6), so I figure I can probably find someone to wear it and take some fun pictures. And for $10 I think it was a great deal.

Trash the dress

There is this great website that I found recently. It is called Trash the Dress. Basically the idea is that you are only going to wear your wedding dress once and that your children won't want to wear it so why bother storing it in a closet for the next 50 years when you can take some totally awesome pictures to remember it by. I am not so sure I want to do this with my own dress, because I am still holding out hope that I will find somewhere to wear it even though there is no wear acceptable to actually wear it and it probably wouldn't fit me anyways, but I really want someone to do it, so I can take some lovely pictures. So anyone up for it? Most of you don't even live nearby, so I doubt it, but worth a shot right?

P.S. If someone wants to participate doesn't feel gutsy enough to trash their own dress, we could certainly buy a cheap one from a thrift store or ebay and do it that way.

Lauren & Chris Part 3

Lauren shows such beautiful emotion through her expressions. Here are a few of the expressions I was able to capture during the first dances.

Lauren & Chris Part 1

This past weekend I attended the wedding of one of my closest high school girlfriends. She is so beautiful and I am so happy that I was able to be there to be a part of her special day. Here are the first shots of her big day.

New Blog

I decided to create a blog that will be connected to my photography website. It will showcase mostly weddings and portraits with a few extra things thrown in there. It will have the most up-to-date images that I have taken, unlike the main website. This way I don't have to add new pictures to my portfolio every time I attend another wedding. So welcome to my photography blog.
