and here is a little more of Wendy and Don’s Day..(just click the little arrow you see below their names atop the beautiful bouquet). Â It was very warm despite the chilly temperatures. Â It was totally difficult narrowing it down, there really are so many nice images. Â But, I think you will agree these tell a bit of the story…Her details with the ice blue were stunning… Â It was so awesome observing the fun and care between Wendy and her daughters getting dressed… Â Wendy and Don both just smitten:<) Â I just love being a part of Weddings. Â It is such a gift! Â A Happy Day, family and friends all round to share in the slice of bliss. Â I think my fav part would have to be when the bride’s dress is just slipped on and she transforms from a young lady to a bride. Â Or wait, the groom’s first sight of his bride…or maybe its when the parents are first seated…o no, its the vows, of course its the vows…hmmm what about the first kiss???
I had the pleasure of documenting Wendy and Don’s destination wedding in Mancos, Colorado New Year’s Eve. Â I love a wedding this time of year. Â Both because of the snow, and especially because its a grand way to start the New Year as husband and wife! Â Wendy and Don are from California and braved a 9 degree Â couple shoot! Â Rad!!! Â Here is a lil sneak peek into their day…

Here is a little sneak peek at our Christmas card this year. Â About this time every year, I deliberate doing a mail or email card. Â Part of me wants to keep consistent with being green and do an email card. Â Another part of me wants to keep consistent with my sentimentality as I save a card for each of the girls and have since their birth. Â With this card, I have found the perfect marriage and makes me perfectly happy. Â My Minted card is printed on recycled paper! Â You too can order from Minted at

“Happy Holidays and Blessings and Light in the New Year”
This was a really fun session on a pretty cool day. Â When Charmin inquired about a family session I knew instantly it would be fun!!! Â When I asked her if she felt outnumbered, her being the only girl in the family and all, she said “yea, but I wear the pants.” Â Love it! Â There were sooo many great ones it was hard to choose. Â I love the couple in sunset and the boys with attitude…
Here is a little sneak peek for the holidays for you and your beautiful family…your CD is coming soon:<) Â Thanks so much for choosing me! Â Â xo ~SAB
