Sometimes you can just see it in a look. In the way he looks at her and the way she looks when she's with him. In that single look, in an instant....you can see the calm they share between them. The quiet. The comfort. The gentle care they hold for one another. And when you can see all that in just one look, you can see a whole future unfold before you.
A future full of quiet and comfort and care. A future built on the way he looks at her....and the way she looks when she's with him.
Married: Lisa & Joe
Lisa & Joe were married on a day when somehow the color was just a little deeper. Richer. Full of life. Because it was a day that was built for them. A day that two people like them deserve. A day when the whole world, even the leaves themselves, just want to go out of their way....to shine a little brighter...to make their day as perfect as possible. Because Lisa & Joe are the kind of people that bring that out in the world. They are the kind of goodness that makes other people want to be better. To work harder. To give more. Because deep down you just know that they deserve it. So thank you L&J for inviting us in to be a part of that. To be reminded of what good people there are in this world. And to be challenged to be more like them. More like you. What we wish for you a life full of little looks and color that shines just for you.
So much love,
So let's just start here, shall we: Lisa was absolutely RADIANT that day! Lisa, you shine from the inside out!
Lisa's mom was such a cutie! I just wanted to take her home with me!
Hello gorgeous light!!!
&Joe the fellas chilling before the ceremony.
Lisa & Joe opted for a first look, which was AWESOME because it gave us time for a ton of shots with them before the ceremony. Which was really good because it was pitch black after the ceremony was over!! And we would've missed out on all this color!
C'mon....just look at his face!! That's what it's all about right there!
These past few days, our new friends The Youngrens were in town to hang out with us!! They rocked our PUG holiday party, put on an AMAZING shoot out, and slept on our deflating air mattress. It was an EPIC time!! :) From the very first dinner when they got into town to Pepe's pizza right before they left, we loved every minute of having them here. And now we're counting down the days until they come back. We promise next time guys, we'll have a real bed for you & everything!
Love you guys!
Jeff & Erin gave their awesome talk, "Keepin' it Real in a Rockstar World," at our big PUG holiday party. Which we held at the incredible Chamard Vineyard down in the cellar!!
Yea, I'm about to cry here. And apparently this is the face I make when I'm about to cry!
Work it Youngrens, work it!!
Jeff is such a social networking GENIUS, and he set it up to stream the meeting live all across the country!
The lovely and oh so talented Miss Sarah True was responsible for getting us in at Chamard. And she even decorated it all up for us! Just look at all those silver ornaments hanging from the ceiling! If you are in need of ANY planning services, definitely give her a call! Love you Sarah!
Anna & the whole crew at Gourmet Galley rocked our WORLD with these passed hors d's!! The sweet potato fries with lime salt were my FAVE!! I never cease to be amazed at GG's presentation and attention to detail! If you are looking for a caterer, definitely put them at the top of your list!!
Kristen & Jen from Sugarbelle provided the dessert in the form of their kickin' cupcakes!! I'm pretty sure I won't be able to fit in my jeans all month because of them. But it was SOOO worth it!!
The next morning bright & early, a bunch of us got together for a shootout Youngren style. Here, Erin demonstrates how she gets her couples in their comfort zone.
We had SUCH a great group!! Including two of the biggest sweethearts ever: Alicia Candelora & the soon to be Marcie Maler!!
Jeff looks so introspective & thoughtful here. I bet he was thinking about Pepe's pizza!
Our models for the day: the ridiculously cute Jess & Max
Max is looking to get into modeling, so we were very honored to host him at his very first shoot!! Justin also grabbed him for a quick coupla headshots!
How adorable is he?
Youngrens, you rock our world! And we feel very lucky to now call you our friends! As well as induct you into the hall of fame of famous photographers who have slept on our derelict air mattress!! :)
