MY LATEST WORK, MY BEAUTIFUL DREAMS, MY INSPIRATIONS

durham NC portrait photographer {mandy + ian}

Well, my wedding season for 2009 is completed!  It’s been a great ‘official’ first year for us.  We’ve made some big strides and we look to the future with great anticipation as to where this crazy ride is going to take us.  We’ve got lots of fun weddings for next year, weddings all up and down the east coast!  Our business has been truly blessed and we attribute that success first and foremost to God.  I find that the ‘artist’ who has created life and the beautiful world we live in, makes for a great source of creative inspiration.

For past clients of mine, if you have not seen your session blogged yet, hang in there.  I will have everything posted from 2009 before I officially begin my 2010 season!

So, as for the intended topic of the current post…I had a great time with Mandy and Ian.  While Mandy who is a elementary school teacher and Ian who works as a nurse for the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at WakeMed are a ‘professional’ couple, they really love to have fun and enjoy life to the fullest!   Oh, and congrats to Ian on being accepted into the highly selective Raleigh School of Nurse Anesthesia!  What an accomplishment!

Our session got rained out like 20 times with the crazy weather we’ve had this fall, but I must say that in the end, the day we ended up with could not have been more perfect!  Our shoot started out at Duke Gardens and ended up at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham and it was just enchanting! (did I really just use that word!?)  Thank you guys for being such a rocking couple!  Let me know when that baby is on the way!  😉
