Personal

I love April. Sure, there may be a few days of surprises (I don’t think I’ll ever forget Carolyn and Jeremy’s torrential downpour wedding) but we’re finally over this lion/lamb business and will most assuredly see real spring soon.

Do you hear that? Those are birds chirping as I’m typing this. The sun is up in the mornings again. I no longer need to wear 10 layers to go outside. There are buds on everything. The crocuses came up a few weeks ago and I’m seeing daffodils everywhere.

For someone who despises the cold, this is my happy time. The year is turning around and the earth is opening up. I can run outside, I can put away my sweaters, and I can start waking up from this dreary hibernation that takes over in the dark winter months.

As for the upcoming Racherty (Rachlin + Docherty) nuptials, I can finally sympathize with my couples going through wedding planning. This stuff is so stressful! We’ve decided on a country and a general month but not much more. The plan is a super small wedding next July in Italy. How awesome is that?! Destination wedding planning means letting go of control so I’ll likely be updating you every month on my breathing techniques and pasta options that I won’t be able to taste before the big day. Regardless, we’re psyched!

Every month, I feature new images for download for you to use as your Facebook cover photo. I resisted the urge to post pictures of the millions of wedding magazines I have around. Click to download these images and see them at their full size and resolution.

Do you know what makes my job the best thing ever? Love.I get to be around people at some of the happiest times of their lives – babies, engagements, weddings. These are moments filled to the brim with family and love. I believe in love because I see it, photograph it, talk to it, and edit it every single day.Love is something that I have believed in since I was very young and in Catholic school. I believed in it when I moved to the South for college. I believed in it in graduate school when I volunteered at a resource hotline for the LGBT community in the Raleigh-Durham area. I believed in it when I lived in San Francisco in 2008 and f ...

Rain, rain, go away!
I'm all for the green, lush gardens and no water restrictions, but it has rained every day of May so far. I even heard that this is a record number of rainy days in a row for Philly and I'm ready for the sun!Remember what this was like?Don't worry, it'll come again. Until then, we'll have to make do with our rainy days. Being the smart cookie I am, I finally went out last Sunday and bought myself a pair of wellies! In between showers today, the wellies and I went out for a little photo session…And I got a few shots of the garden too.“The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We bought a house in June. After moving around all my life (28 addresses at last count), I am thrilled to put down roots and have a permanent base (I still plan on as many adventures as possible). This is crazy and exciting and terrifying and amazing all wrapped up in one big, expensive package. We have professionals doing the especially skilled labor (taking down walls, putting up walls, adding a spiral staircase, stuff with electricity, plumbing, gas/oil, and 100 other things). We took on a task that took approximately 5x longer than we originally expected and though it’s nowhere near perfect, we’re pretty proud of ourselves: we painted ...
