A great Beethoven piece :)

Bach on the cello, so beautiful!

Thanking the audience for such an overwhelming turnout, it was standing room only!
An interesting piece, not my fav but he is amazingly talented!

and it was so lovely! 

Music is such a powerful thing for the body- even though we hear it, music really affects all of our senses to an extent. Not only can it take you on a journey visually but when eating music can affect the rate in which you eat and it can affect your sense of touch by changing your mood when you allow it to, think art gallery :) 

I am a visual learner and love to meditate on things above while listening to such beautiful melodies. 
I love to engulf myself in a great song, I particularly love worship and a great jazz instrumental both offer such different but beautiful elements. 

Another aspect I love about music is its ability to inspire when working, I love editing to music!

Summer Love

"If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance. ~Bern Williams" 

I recently got the opportunity to visit this little paradise and I could seriously live there on summer days like this; visiting places like this makes life that much sweeter.

Initiate- Sarah+Allen: Everyday

Every day is a new opportunity to initiate something in life. I like to initiate with my art while learning to better appreciate the little things in life. I love to learn new things. 

To fully appreciate these photos I first like to add a personal note :) 
I met Sarah through my brother when he and his wife were first dating. I quickly learned of Sarah's amazing talent for doing hair and make-up, not to mention her heart of gold, she is one of the sweetest and most fun people I've ever met. I have had the awesome opportunity of working with her a few times now and I have loved every bit of it. We've discussed putting together her portfolio and I officially consider her a go to vendor for my shoots/weddings when need be :) 

Last year after hosting a wedding shower for my brother and his now wife, where a slide show of my images were shown from their engagements and save the dates, that can be seen here, I was soon after in contact with Sarah as now my sister was getting married and needed to hire a hair and make-up artist. When I contacted her to discuss how she would like to be paid for her time she mentioned that her and her husband never got engagement photos, they had hired a really amazing, but pricey, photographer to shoot their wedding day only and since seeing my work had wanted the opportunity to have their photos done by me. I excitedly accepted the opportunity to do so and am so grateful that I chose to. 

The day of the shoot the weather was so perfect, it was a little breezy and just sunny enough to make you forget that you are in a city known for its crazy whether and humidity. They picked this fabulous location right around the corner from the church they got married at and I could have serious continued to shoot for a couple of hours longer after discovering all the wonderful little places nestled in this location :)

I recently finished a photoshop class and was ecstatic to try out all of the new things I had learned combined with some of my old editing and new found taste that is inspired by discovering so many new amazing blogs. So here are a few of my favorites from their shoot including a few new tricks that were quite successful, enjoy!  

P.s. They tried to warn me that they weren't photogenic, too bad they had no idea how completely untrue that was ;)
