[stacey and tom, the wedding.]


I figured at some point, it would happen.  Sweet little kids grow up and get married, and it happens now that all of my favorite students from my Middle School teaching years are on that path in their lives.  It's funny, we don't see the changes in our selves, as we are always looking ahead to what is next.  But when you have something against which to compare time, like a child growing up, time moves impossibly fast.  So it happens that this year, one of my first and most talented art students asked me to photograph her wedding, it was bittersweet!  Last fall, we got together for their engagement session and it was so much fun, I couldn't wait to see how Stacey pulled everything together for their big day!

Stacey wanted to make sure not to smudge the lipstick....hence the straw.  Good ring prop, if you ask me!

Prior to the wedding itself, Stacey and the girls wanted to rock their dresses a bit...when I think back to the art she made in high school, I couldn't help to be drawn to Ellicott Creek Park for her pictures.

I LOVE the fresh color combinations they used- totally unexpected for me to see red and yellow, but it was awesome and bold.

A lot of my former students were there and it was fun hearing where they are in life now, and funny how in a lot of ways they haven't really changed too much since I last saw them.
