Hank & Tasha | the engagement session

My bestie's getting married!
 I honestly can't believe that I can't come up with anything more original than the cliche I can't believe how fast it's all going by, but there it is.  
Life is so incredibly fleeting, so unspeakably beautiful, so richly rewarding.  Living each day to the fullest is an adventure, but also a privilege, and I've never been more aware of it than right now.

I've been spending an insane amount of time in front of my sewing machine between filling orders and sewing for the wedding.  The Dress, in all it's glory, is sitting here in the bus studio awaiting the sewing on of the buttons from Tasha's mother's dress.  The bridesmaids dresses are a pile of blue and lavender happiness.  Stacks of tulle and satin and tulle & satin skirts are everywhere as always, and life is good.

I shot these two adorable people (along with Alex - see some of his work here) on a sultry early August afternoon, with dramatic clouds rolling by and a soft summer breeze that steadily crept into a full-on gale.  The last shot taken, crashing thunder, lightening and pouring rain sent us running for the house, and we all lolled on the living room floor watching the storm with all the lights out.  
And played Candy Land.  Tasha won.

Love you two!
