It's so pretty

Okay, you know that scene in Despicable Me where the little girl sees a unicorn at the carnival, her eyes get big, and she exclaims, “He’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!!!” That’s exactly how I feel about weddings. Only it’s more of a “It’s SOOO pretty I’m gonna die!!!” I mean… look at this wedding! Look!

Many thanks to Diane for letting me second shoot for her!

And you just wait until you see the rest.

Brotha & Sista

Me & my brother

I like him. Even if he can't smile for the camera.

Oh and P.S. Finding texts from friends after finally turning off my phone alarm (the unlocking thing confuses me everytime) is a very happy thing. It could almost make me a morning person. Almost.

Yosemite Falls and Switchbacks


7.2 miles round trip.
2700 feet of elevation gained and lost.
Nature's very own slip n' slide of hard packed and melting snow for the last quarter mile.
Approximately five thousand switchbacks. I'd like to think that's a conservative estimate. I'm also pretty certain there were more switchbacks coming down than there were going up. ;)

But *cue the Chariots of Fire theme song* we made it to the top!

One step and you'll be down at the lodge...the fast way.

Half Dome and Star Trails

I’m afraid of bears. Not a normal healthy respect, like an irrational “all the bears in Yosemite Valley are out to maul me to death” kind of fear. I’m even convinced a good chunk of them come down from the high country once word gets out I’m there. Yes, this fear is specific to Yosemite. It's irrational, remember? I blame it on all the ranger talks we went to when I was little. They made a huge deal about the bears. “Use the bear lockers! Bears roam the campgrounds! They destroy cars! Don’t run if you see one!”


Which is why I feel like this photo, a 40 minute exposure in a very dark meadow, is a big deal.
