Talk about braving the cold! There was only one weekend before Carole & Kris’ wedding next year that we were all going to be in Colorado at the same time. And when your couple lives out of state and you’re traveling all over the place for the holidays, sometimes you just have to grin and bear it. I could not have been more impressed by what good sports they were in the twenty degree weather in Frisco, mid-December. They were even willing to shed their coats for the cost of a good photo. These are my type of clients! Despite numb hands, red noses, and rosy cheeks, Carole and Kris’ love and happiness warmed my heart and made for a beautiful engagement session! I cannot wait until their much warmer wedding this July!
Knowing Laurene and Nima has been nothing short of a blessing in my life, and I was so happy to be able to photograph them before I left France. It was because of their kind hearts and giving spirits that I was able to take the adventure of a lifetime this year. They opened the doors to their home, agreeing to host me in France for two months. And they did this without ever expecting a thing! On top of that, they quickly became two of my closest friends, and I left with Laurene telling me that their home is my home while tears filled our eyes. I absolutely loved spending two months with them and already miss them more than anything. It’s hard leaving your heart in a different country, but I read a quote recently that said, “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That’s the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” I’m so lucky to have a home in more than one country.
These two are planning on getting married in 2015, so I know there will be another adventure to Europe in the near future. I can’t wait!
