Michelle & Jay ~ San Antonio, TX 02.07.09

Michelle and Jay were married in downtown San Antonio's La Villita Chapel. They then took a horse carriage ride to The Vault for their very intimate reception. Jay is in the Navy and wore his Navy best. Michelle's dad was also decked out in his Naval attire. It was a very nice, intimate evening with a fun couple. Congratulations!!

Some of my faves...

A few days ago I received a very nice note from one of my brides. She received her album and is very happy, so I wanted to share.

"the album just arrived... WE LOVE IT! it is absolutely gorgeous... i want to hang all the pages on my wall so I can stare at them all the time. thanks so much amy... you do fantastic work." - Alison Rezai

Below is the album design I created for Ali and Kam. Enjoy!

Denver, CO ~ 01.09

My wonderful friend Gwen (featured below with her good looking boys) and I had some much needed girlfriend time in her hometown of Denver a few weeks back. Gwen and I roomed together in, and I quote Gwen on this, "a 52 square foot apartment downtown Chicago during our Senior year of college. Well, maybe it was like 152 square feet. But we also shared that elaborate space with roaches the size of a small duck and another roommate. It was the best and most expensive semester of our college lives!". I quote her because I couldn't have said it better. Jay and I flew out to visit and it was the first time we met eachothers boys. Did she ever keep us hoppin! In the few short days (too short) that I was there we managed to up to the mountains twice, to Evergreen and to Red Rock, take in the Rodeo and Stock show, see a local play "Girls Only" (her hubby Tim, aka "Super Dad" offered to watch the boys so we could have a night out), swimming with the boys, hiking, and on... We had SO much fun!!

Here are the pics to prove it...

The boys...

Something you don't see everyday - The Dairy Princesses (with tiaras and all) are on the left waiting for their cows to come in... literally.

Funny Alpaca's

Breathtaking Evergreen...

There was an older gentleman watching me take this shot who pretty much thought I was nuts. My wonderful friend Gwen stood up for me - "It's ok. She's a professional." :)

Gwen practiced her photography skills and took some pics me and my J. Thanks friend!!
