Wedding Bliss On Martha’s Vineyard

I was honored to be in attendance and to take some photos at my dear friend Kristy’s wedding on Martha’s Vineyard last month. I met Kristy over 10 years ago when I was working at a Crisis Management service provider and she was at an airline. As with many of my clients from those days, Kristy and I became friends and have continued our friendship through other jobs and life paths. Kristy and her now husband Noel’s story is one of true love, international long distance love at that, and perseverance. I’ve never been so happy or emotional at a wedding in my life. These two are the perfect couple and worked hard to get to their special day.

The last few weeks have been a bit challenging for many and with the media full of emotional stories, I wanted to send out a little love today, in my own style.

This photo was taken on South Beach on Martha’s Vineyard. Using sparklers, Kristy, Noel and the two boys Sam and Christopher spelled love for all the world to see.  Kristy requested I include this, as it was a major theme at the wedding. #LoveWins

Yes, Kristy, you helped prove that!

And just like my trip to Amsterdam last year and my #LoveLettersToAmsterdam theme, I have a lot of love for Martha’s Vineyard so here is my #LoveLetterToMarthasVineyard. An Impressionist photography image from Edgartown Harbor.

Thank you Martha’s Vineyard for the beauty and magic you always share.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Fan Favorites – COLORS from Anacortes

Fan Favorites – COLORS from Anacortes

I’ve found inspiration in daily micro-blogging over on my Instagram account, but I know I’ve neglected my Blog and subscribers. I’m going to try out a new goal to do a weekly blog highlighting my most popular images on Instagram. Hopefully you will be inspired by these images too. I’ll also provide a coupon code and a one week only discount on select fan favorite images so you can get images off your screen and onto your walls.

Last week I featured images from a recent trip to Anacortes and one of my favorite area beaches, Rosario Beach. Here are the top 2 “fan favorites” for the week.

Coming in tops with 100 likes and several comments was this fun photo of the violent surf roaring onto the beach as the sun was setting. These were the biggest waves I’ve seen on this beach and was thankful that I was paying attention when a particularly BIG one crashed in and tried to take me and my tripod out! Still standing (and running quickly away from the looming waves) I was able to get some great shots of rolling waves highlighted by the sun’s glowing rays.

Coming in second, with 83 likes, is this Impressionist photography image of sunset color beginning to paint the sky.

Winter Blue & Purple

Good morning!

It’s 27 degrees in Seattle this morning. That’s just cold.

My fingers feel blue. My feet may have moved into purple stage. Cold I tell you!

My soul is feeling some blue and purple too. But, not from the cold. It’s feeling some residual blue sky and purple cloud sunset beauty from Monday night. I thought I’d take my bus commute to thaw out and share some warm color inspiration.

It was chilly at the Seattle waterfront, but not 27 degrees chilly. Even in the cold, art makes me warm.

In your soul only!
