My one and only!

26 Mar

Since Drake dedicated a blog post to me, it is only necessary that I do the same:) We had a blast hanging out one evening last week. We did some location scouting for future engagement shoots and I had the opportunity to test out my new camera for the first time! Here are some of the shots I got of Drake Busch, my one and only! And my future husband! 

Here is my version of love in the dumpster:)

This was a guy selling papers on the 16th Street Mall who asked us to take his photo. 

And this was just for fun:)

Yellow. Spring. Happiness.

22 Mar

I’m not sure what has gotten into me lately; maybe it’s the warm weather, maybe the wedding planning, maybe the thought of  bumble bees and honey but I’ve found that I seriously love yellow! It reminds me of all the bright things in life that we sometimes take for granted. Those little things that make you (or me) happy! I’ve found myself wanting to redecorate the entire house in different shades of yellow…however Drake would most likely strangle me so I settled for a yellow patio chair (I would’ve done the whole set but I underestimated the amount of paint that one chair would take).

Who would’ve thought you could actually paint plastic adirondacks? We bought these chairs a couple years ago and the sun had taken it’s toll on them. First of all I had to scrub down the chairs with soap and water…

Then came the spray paint portion…my trigger finger is still sore from all the spraying.

And here is the new and improved adirondack…

And here it is beside it’s original counterpart…which will get done at some point.

Here is Drake relaxing, for once. He rarely gets time to relax so I’m glad he got to enjoy an hour on the patio.

And a few minutes later…

I wore my “boat shoes” as Drake likes to call them so I thought I’d take some shots just for fun.

I think I’m going to call them my happy shoes because the laces look like they’re smiling. I know I’m a huge dork…but I’m ok with it:And here’s a heart planter we picked up at a thrift store awhile back. It’s one of our favorite backyard additions.

Thanks for taking the time to visit the first of my many Spring time blogs. Can’t wait for more DIY projects. I’m trying to keep the creative juices flowing!

Happy Spring!

Cookies, Shoes and Magazines!

6 Mar

These are a few of my favorite things!!

Magazines – Thanks to my dear friend Jenni, I have now become addicted to bridal magazines! She got married at a lovely ranch outside Denver last August and passed down a TON of magazines to assist with my wedding planning. These magazines have consumed my time for the past few weeks. Some people call them wedding porn and I now understand why.

Shoes – I found my wedding shoes!!! Ok, one pair anyway:) These will not be sufficient for a walk down the aisle-beach style, however I think  they will be great for photos. Drake  and I found these at Goodwill a few days ago. It has been my go to place for DIY wedding items. As a matter of fact, this morning was another indication that Drake is the man of my dreams when he enthusiastically asked me (half asleep), “Do you know what today is?”, “No, what?”, “It’s 50% off day at Goodwill!” He really gets me:)

The note in the last photo was a note that Drake left before going to work, encouraging me to “play around” with the camera. It was super sweet! I can’t even begin to tell you how great he really is! I am so looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him by my side.

Cookies!! – These were amazing. So amazing in fact, that Drake didn’t even get to try them….ooops!

445 Days!

1 Mar

Wow, that seems like forever! I’m sure the time will pass quickly especially since I’ll have very little time to plan over the Summer…we now have 14 weddings booked so it’s going to be busy to say the least!

Last night Drake and I decided to head out to Wash Park to enjoy the amazing Denver sunset and Spring like weather. I was able to snap a few shots while Drake was busy testing out the video capabilities of his studio partners’ camera (the model he is considering purchasing for me…hopefully). You have no idea how excited I am about this possibility.

I know this post doesn’t have a lot to do with planning my wedding but I figured that taking photos during the off season is at least helping me plan for all the other weddings we’ll be shooting this Summer:)

Drake has joked with me saying that I'm a mini...it's become a little joke between us so I took this photo of the Mini emblem.
