In the morning there is always a little more clarity.
These days I have found there is a certain hope and feeling that only comes with the rising sun.

Kelly and Trey are getting married in April and I am so excited for it!
These two are incredibly fun to take pictures of and their wedding sounds like it is going to be unlike any other I’ve ever photographed before. Thanks Kelly and Trey for being so fun and for braving the cold with me.
“I want to see you.
Know your voice.
Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.
Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left.
Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.
Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.
I want to know the joy
of how you whisper
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”- Guatama Buddha
Some days are just more memorable than others.
Practicing being present and living in the moment helps me remember.

In sorting through my life and old photos last night, I came across these three images. They were taken on my last night in London this past summer.
I wandered through Regent’s park and felt a lot for the place // the city as a whole.
Best of all things are the lights in the sky
but what I am seeking is sleep.
Or not sleep exactly,
because of the dreams and the damage they do,
but places to sleep, on the ground,
in the middles of cities that are strange to me:
cots that cost nothing, whatever the slant,
spots that are mine at nightfall,
favorable places the size of my body,
where grass grows out of the brickwork,
under the stars or the lights of the tunnels.
- Thomas Frick
Kathi and Lisa were married on their 13th anniversary.
Their wedding was held at Holy Covenant church in Charlotte and an elegant reception at Byron’s South End followed. Music, good food, and a celebration of love was most important to them on their special day and it was filled with all of those things! Their wedding was held on a Friday night and it was entirely them.
Kathi and Lisa’s day was particularly special because of the love that they share as well as the love that exists between them and their family and friends. They are incredibly loved and supported by their friends, their families, and their church community and it is evident in the way in which they live their lives.
It was an honor to be a part of this wedding.
Congratulations and blessings for years to come Kathi and Lisa!
