Lolla legs and a sleeper.

I shot this from a cherry picker during Lollapalooza in Chicago last month.

Hope you’re having a good Monday!

Whispered Marriage Proposal

Jake proposed to his girlfriend, Kristina via a whisper chain. The idea was that they world set the whisper chain world record with a message being successfully passed a crowded room. The message: “Kristina, will you marry me?” 59 whispers later, the message was delivered to her onstage by a complete stranger.

Clever (and awesome).

Gracie Garmon



My adorable niece was a perfect princess on her 2nd birthday.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is probably not the last time she will be a princess!

Sooooooo cute, right?!?!?
Gah!

Have a great weekend,

Mary Grace and Ian, portraits





Emily and I photographed this wedding back in June and it was a beauty. I’ll post more from this wedding in the next few days. Wait until you see the wedding cake!

I hope those of you in Austin are surviving the heat. May I suggest the Alamo Drafthouse for an escape?

Another proposal in Chicago.

I saw this on the street while I was in Chicago. Pretty clever, eh?

While I was trying to get a decent photo of it, people kept oohing and aahing out of their car windows. Everyone kept asking me if I was Alaina (much to my mother’s dismay, no I am not).

I assume that she said yes, because that box is marked. but if she had said no, I wonder if the no box would have been checked. That would have been very bold of Colby.

I wonder how Alaina and Colby are doing now. Have they started planning the wedding? Are they arguing over colors? Or what type of wedding to have? I actually have a pair of friends that have been engaged for like, six years. They’re not married because they can’t agree on what type of wedding to have. He wants a fancy black tie affair. She thinks this idea is ridiculous. So, she wears the ring, they’ve bought a house, enjoy each others company immensely and seem perfectly happy to remain engaged. I guess if it’s not broken….

Congratulations Alaina and Colby! Call me, I shoot weddings.

Rock and roll marriage proposal.

Here’s something that you don’t see everyday. In fact, I’ll file this under “once in a lifetime opportunity.” Barry Brecheisen, a photographer from Chicago proposed to his girlfriend onstage after the Jane’s Addiction show at Lollapalooza. They didn’t just walk out onstage. Jane’s Addiction front man, Perry Farrell, announced it to the many many thousands of fans watching:




In all the excitement he actually forgot to give her the ring until afterward:



Congratulations to Barry and his lady!

Sleeping in Public – wedding reception ZONK.




When a reception has comfy couches and pillows, there’s bound to be a sleeper or two. Lucky for me!!
They really do look perfectly comfortable, don’t they?
Zzzzzzzzz………
