My sisters wedding bouquet : Indiana, 2012
Two years ago, my step sister got married, and I had the honor of being one of her bridesmaids. It was beautiful and fun and I also got to be an unofficial photographer, but without the stress of being the actual wedding photographer. I snuck around the ceremony and reception, (keeping a respectable distance from the paid photographer, of course)…but I got to silently move through the crowd, capturing beautifully candid moments of everyone celebrating. I didn’t have to direct or pose anyone, or worry about missing a shot. Can I always do that?? Be the photographer who crashes weddings? I don’t work well under pressure, I just want to sneak around and capture moments undetected…

Last summer was the best summer. Matt and I were living in this tiny little bungalow in Ocala, Fl before we moved to Gainesville. We called it the Love Shack. We converted our porch into a bedroom and Laurie moved in with us towards the end. We had so much fun. It was constant chaos and adventures. It was pouring down rain, and Laurie and I stripped down to underwear and bathing suits, and I covered my camera with a trash bag to take this photo lol. I remember being soaked and happy. So many great memories in that tiny house. <3

This girl was so much fun to take pictures of! She&#8217;s a natural model, and her smile is so pretty. I would love to take pictures of her again if I ever wander back down to Florida &lt;3

Hi I'm really digging your hair and I like your blog!!!

Hey, thanks so much, that’s awesome : ))

 
So I bleached my dreads and dyed them pink yesterday&#160;: ) I was so nervous, I&#8217;ve never bleached my hair before. I had to use like four boxes of bleach, I thought for sure they were just going to fall out haha. But I really like how they turned out! They&#8217;re still drying in this picture, they look fluffier now&#160;: ) 
This is my first post in like a week! Tumblr hasn&#8217;t been working for me for some reason&#8230;but it is now, so, follow me and check out my photography and say hi&#160;: )
