In honour of their two year dating anniversary, Tim&Johanna got their photos made!

I had a great time. We got to hang out, talk, and walk around downtown Cleveland and make these photos.


cleveland, TN has the BEST backgrounds i think. i mean, i know every place has great photographic backgrounds, but they are so overabundant in cleveland. every three feet is something new and textured and graphic.
&i love it toooons.

on a personal note, life has been awesome lately.
my apartment is so big and i have so much work, that it is really easy not to leave home for days. So now, with the help of a friend or two (ahem, matt allen), I am making the conscious effort to leave home every day for a little bit. &it's great! I even met a Native American man last night! &he wore cowboy boots! perfect? right.

&while we're on the subject of cowboys and indians...i have decided to decorate my bedroom with all cowboy/indian items. item one, a huuuge painting of wild horses with the caption reading "free as the wind." yuppp! so cool!

This is what August and I look like today.
Cuuuute! My pup is biggg!

ps. listen to the new MY MORNING JACKET ALBUM called "evil urges."
best album in years.

Well, well, well...looks like its time to meet Carly and George.
The first time I visited the west coast was to photograph their wedding (which I cried a lot at).

Incredible wedding, incredible couple, and killer photoshoot last week.
&here are the results!

We shot at their first home as a married couple, out on the streets of Cleveland, and at Starbucks (where they are both employed at).

Check out Carly here, she (&him) are great!!

Liston-Avnaim Wedding.


so this wedding...
was perfect.

they are so in love!
they had sort-of-matching Tom shoes as their wedding shoes!
they were married under a chuppah.

nick picked wildflowers for the wedding.
we were able to take their wedding portraits downtown Cleveland (which is, of course, my happy place).
their ceremony had hymns! and foot washing!
they danced down the aisle after the were announced husband and wife (see photo below).

absolutely beautiful!

nick created this of him and says "till your breath is the only song i hear"

they made me sit here...

so seriously, this wedding ROCKED.
gooooosh. they are so cool to be around! it was a thrill.
i think i got high off their love, which is the ultimate compliment i can give.
