Amanda & Rob's New Life Together!

On August 22, 2009 I had the chance to be the photographer for a great friend of mines wedding. I was very excited when she asked me to do this. It was a beautiful wedding and everyone could feel the love that this couple shares for one another! I wish them happiness and everything that a marriage and love have to bring, But I have no doubt in my mind they dont have it already :)

Here's a few pictures I took!

I love this shot of the excited Bride!
How funny are their faces in this shot!! I love it

I loved this boat and asked the Bride if she would mind me using it! She LOVED the idea!

Gorgeous Bride!

Fall Is Here!!

I love the fall, its my favorite season of the year!

Yesterday I took Ava apple picking for her first time, She was a great help and loved picking up the apples off the ground and putting them into the basket, I took them out when she wasn't looking, They weren't the greatest! But it was so cute her helping me. :)

I love shooting things that dont move!

The girls are good little helpers!

Scott & Jenny's Wedding Order!

So yesterday I didn't get a chance to blog because i was super busy with this wedding order!
I baked over 120 cupcakes and a 6" cake for the top of the cupcakes tower!

The Bridge came to me with a picture out of a Martha Stewart Magazine, And I was very excited to make this for her!

It was a picture of a cupcake, but I made it into a 6" cake. The flower's are made out of Meringue and turned out pretty cute after 3 try's and learning that you have to use Meringue as soon as you make it or it wont mold.. Urgghhh!

Niall Eccles made the wedding cake top, Its the Bride and Groom! How cute is that!
I might be doing some business with him in a couple of days -Exciting!

Im SO happy with the way the flower's turned out!

The many cupcakes, There was 2 other boxes full as well!
