{week 45}

still not quite there, but getting a little more back into rhythms of studying and shooting. i’m extremely grateful my semester is starting slowly, giving me some time to get back into things, and also because august will be a busy month (three states, each in a different time zone…)

day 317: every time we go to this coffee shop, i look over and admire the lights strung in this random apartment’s courtyard lol.

{weeks 43 & 44}

still getting back in the swing of shooting daily, my habits and rhythms were knocked haywire from traveling and slowly trying to recover.

Drew + Justin | July 4, 2017

Drew and Justin met at GIAL last July and as a classmate and friend, it was my honor to photograph their wedding under the gorgeous mountains of Colorado. I got to attend their rehearsal as well the day before, and I love the juxtaposition of these two photos of Drew & her dad.

 

During set up, everyone was a little nervous about high winds and potential rain clouds, but as the the time for the ceremony approached, the sky cleared up nicely. The weather wasn’t 100% cooperative, and the winds challenged the unity candle, requiring the whole wedding party to circle around and protect the flame! The best man had a trick up his sleeve, handing them ring pops before surrending the wedding bands.

After the reception, we closed out the night with some dancing. Drew’s parents had so much joy spinning around the dance floor. This last photo of them is one of my favorites, just celebrating after all the activities of the day were complete!

Thanks for letting me capture your wedding day & see you soon 🙂

 

 

{weeks 41 & 42}

these two weeks are combined because my life has been insanely hectic and i’ve been really really bad about taking pictures these two weeks. week 41 was filled with packing, moving, and unpacking. i had to pack + move all of my stuff, along with the helping the boy move all of his stuff. the downside to moving to a new city at the same time, is that our leases will also expire at the same time. week 42 was a road trip to colorado!

day 283: not pictured
day 284: not pictured
day 285: yippee, packing! x.x
day 286: in an attempt to visualize how much i had left to pack, i tried to throw everything packed into my closet. it all fit, but it got difficult to access anything in the closet…
day 287: oops spent a whole lot more time on wedding planning than i had expected. it can really suck you in…
day 288: not pictured
day 289: not pictured
day 290: selfie taken on the skyline drive of pueblo, co
day 291: an adorable flower girl during wedding rehearsal
day 292: yo, those colorado mountains are so insanely gorgeous
day 293: dallas welcomes us back with a double rainbow

{week 40}

if i ever say, “i’m starting a new 365 project!” you should all say “no, no you aren’t”. why so dramatic? i’ve been slacking, mostly because my life is fairly boring. since coming back stateside, it’s consisted of learning some basic coding, dipping my toe in wedding planning, and getting ready to move.

day 276: not pictured
day 277: post-downpour sunsets
day 278: pack, unpack. pack, unpack. pack, unpack. repeat.
day 279: what do you do when you’re tryna operate a coffee shop in nyc and there’s only room for 3 people to sit inside? double your capacity by putting chairs in the sidewalk! perfect.
day 280: not pictured
day 281: new uniforms!
day 282: aaaaand dallas ruined my saturday plans of playing 5 hours of frisbee by pouring rain, so we took apart all of my furniture and moved it to the boy’s place where it will live.

{week 39}

a whole week of portugal! well, technically i’m back today, but i’ve spent 8 hours on an airplane, then 3 hours getting home from newark. nj transit isn’t quite as photogenic as europe…

day 269: art x history museums make my heart happy (thank goodness the semester is over)
day 270: not all heros wear capes, some of them will be your portuguese tour guide detouring to pick up a hat from the river because “the children, they are our future”
day 271: boo to museums to that carefully list all the days they are closed (Mondays, January 1, Easter Sunday, May 1, December 25) but randomly closed on Tuesday, June 13th
day 272: pasteis de nata (portuguese egg tarts) in belem!
day 273: view of the palacio da pena taken from somewhere in the 85 hectacre garden we found ourselves wandering & lost in
day 274: made it inside the museum from earlier this week!! the bro is clearly thrilled that i love museums so much.
day 275: not pictured, too tired and nj transit is unphotogenic.

{week 38}

it was a very exciting week, you probably don’t want to miss it…! also first highlights of being in portugal!

day 262: why does the boy look so worried? i may have been too insistent on jumping pictures, causing something fairly important to fly out of his pocket…
day 263: mm coworker made us chocolate caramel potato chip cupcakes to celebrate!
day 264: 40 min pit stop in boston because buses to NYC from worcester were too expensive? perfect time for the boy to grab his favorite draft latte 🙂
day 265: not pictured
day 266: the bro is thrilled to be on vacation
day 267: back at it, photographing people looking at art 🙂
day 268: so, not the pain attraction of porto, but the azueljos are pretty neat
