Photographing photographers is just too easy:) Sara Hasstedt and her husband Paulie were wonderful to meet in Denver, if only I could be this productive in any given 10 minutes! Thank you Sara and Paulie! Kodak Portra 400 through a Hasselblad 500cm, developed and scanned by the FIND Lab.
Alex and Michael are two of the most easy going people : so fun, beautiful and in love : all the good things a couple should be when they tie the knot. I loved being at their wedding day at Lincoln Country Club, it was such a joyous time with friends from all over the country. Eddie Brown from the 402 gave a special performance requested by Alex's father of a song they sang together when she was that brought tears to everyone's eyes, including mine:) Just want to point out Alex's killer Manolo Blanco shoes and elegant wedding dress. Congratulations you two!!
I think that Theron & Katie's wedding was as much fun for the photographers as it was for their guests, and I am truly honored to have my friends have me photograph their amazing wedding weekend at Kapels Last Resort! We were able to camp out with great bunch of people the night before, and we enjoyed catching up with Lincoln friends who came up the next day for the wedding. The majority of guests came from Texas, the East Coast or West coast, and just a bunch of Theron's groomsmen and friends made their way from Texas to Nebraska via a motorcycle-road-trip-bachelor's-party and camped out along the way. A friend's wedding, camping out, fun people and spending time with my husband, what more can I ask for? Grab some popcorn, sit back and check out this mega post of Theron & Katie's wedding weekend!
Putting the finishing touches on the blog of Theron & Katie's amazing camp-out wedding, until then enjoy some photos from their rehearsal the evening before!
Pilar & John were married at Trinity Lutheran Church in Papillion, and had their reception at the Georgetown Club in Omaha. I shot these all with my beloved Hasselblad on Ilford Delta 3200 and Fuji 400H, while assisting Amanda Kohler Photography. Here are a few of my favorites from the day that I shot!
I just love Community Crops, Joe and I like to take walks to the garden plot near our house and see what everyone is doing, it's so exciting to see all the different things that people do, and techniques that are used! So I was super excited to photograph their health fair at Mickle Middle School, watch kids plant tomatos, check out the awesome hoop house and talk with the people who make it happen.Visit out Community Crops and see how they're making life better for Lincoln people!

On my way home yesterday evening, I stopped to pick a big boquet of purple clover and grabbed a bottle of wine. I could have made a list of 57 other things I should have been doing instead, but I went out to our backyard, gathered some mulberries that I never have time to pick up, and just enjoyed the end of the day with my cats. And of course I had my camera with me, it was pretty, so why not? I hope everyone gets a few quiet chore-free moments as spring draws to a close.
Walking around Denver with my husband.
Happy Friday! Here are a few of my favorite photos I took at Luke & Lauren's wedding where I assisted Amanda Kohler Photography. It was a beautiful day, and they tied the knot at the Thompson Center - couldn't have asked for a sweeter couple!
Really looking forward to this couple's wedding in Steamboat Springs! Yes, Jessica and Travis are doing what so many people want to do but don't think they should or can. They're having a destination wedding at a ski resort in Colorado with their families, a few close friends, and of course their photographer:) They're just the cutest, don't you think?
