CONGRATULATIONS TO ROB + SAMANTHA

My little brother got married yesterday and I’m beyond thrilled to be here in Lucca, Italy with Rob and my new sister-in-law Samantha!  Last night we walked through the city and around the wall shooting a night session…here’s a peek at the happy couple:

KELLY + MATT | DESTINATION WEDDING - MAUI

We absolutely loved this amazing destination wedding from 2011. We had to hold off on sharing these images on our blog because Kelly and Matt’s wedding was featured by the amazing Destination I Do Magazine. I’m so excited to be able to share a peek into this magical day, which has been a long time coming for this blog. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and aloha, friends!

ERIN + BRIAN | DESTINATION WEDDING - NEW ORLEANS | BOUND BY

erin-wyatt-destination-wedding-new-orleans-bound-by-los-angeles-amelia-strauss-photography-morning-after-shoot-city-park-oak-trees-spanish-moss-victoria-nicole-dress2

Erin and Brian…geez, where to start?

Well, simply put, it was quickly apparent to me that Erin would be one of those clients who becomes a fast and lasting friend.  When we first began talking on the phone (which was at minimum an hour long fun-filled venture from the very start), we realized soon after that we unfortunately weren’t going to be able to work together.  Although, that really didn’t trip up our developing relationship much, if at all.  Fast forward a few months and I was absolutely ecstatic to hear from Erin that with changes in date and planning - we now WOULD be working together!  I was thrilled.  Truly.  Couldn’t wait to pack my bag and board a flight to The Big Easy for her gorgeous wedding to her guy, Mr. Brian Young.

I really am probably at a loss for words to describe the intimacy of the weekend and how much respect I have for Erin and Brian’s relationship.  This type of thing is, of course, what keeps me from blogging in the first place.  Let’s just leave it at this:

Erin, as I sit here writing on the eve of Thanksgiving, I’m reminded how truly thankful I am for YOU.  Your friendship and support have been hugely integral to my year - and I couldn’t be more grateful for you and the opportunity to be a part of your life.  You’ve been a blessing to me.  I’m so honored that I got to document this day for you and Brian.  I loved every minute. And I love every image…

ERIN + BUBBA | MARRIED - NASHVILLE DESTINATION WEDDING | BOUND BY

This is just a sneak peak of Erin and Bubba’s gorgeous outdoor wedding in Nashville, Tennessee.

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted on this blog consistently, but in the event that you were reading posts from this past spring, you may remember that I have a Mini-Me, and I wrote about her engagement to a guy named Bubba.  You can read that story HERE.  Full story on their wedding will be soon to come, and I can’t wait to get all of their film back. But in the meantime, please check out their joyful faces and her bare feet…

TALA + CODY | DESTINATION WEDDING - FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE | BOUND BY

bound-by-destination-wedding-france-chateau-tala-kolb-dordogne-amelia-strauss-photography-1

Welcome to a quick peek into Tala and Cody’s charming destination wedding in the countryside of France at Chateau Forge du Roy.

We traveled out to meet them at this amazing venue on a train out of Paris, where we were working for the last half of the summer.  I’ve been holding on to their images since August, as I planned to share their wedding in a blog post on our new Bound By blog - but thought I’d go ahead and sneak these few over here while we’re working on the launch.  Plan on checking back for more sneaks of shoots from the last few months that I’ll be posting on this blog over the next couple weeks.  And get excited about the Bound By blog!

In the meantime - congratulations to the lovely couple, and ouvrez vos livres…(this is the only French I know)…
