WARNING: if you hated your wedding album or pictures DO NOT read any further!



you have heard me talk about my friend kelly here before.
she is amazing.
what is also amazing is the wedding pictures and album she put together for us.
before kelly introduced me to her work a few years ago, i was only familiar with the old school
wedding album . . .
a handful of 5x7s
a few 8x10s
put them into cardboard matted slots and call it a day.
what a lovely way to caputure that moment when you both put your hands
with new wedding rings in place
on top of his boutinere
or her heirloom hanky.
it really caputures the moment.

well, i am sure kelly would agree.
but she when she started taking pictures
she decided to let the 8x10 wedding picture people do what they are good at
and she started doing everything else!

she is a machine.
she stops at nothing to capture the tear right as it comes out of the brides eye
she has been known to lay belly down on a sand beach in order to get the right angel

enough said.

anyway, after months of negotiations with the company who prints and assembles her albums,
kelly was finally able to send us our album this spring!
here are some snippets.

ps - kelly also took our friend latonya's wedding pictures. latonya is a nicer human being than i, so she is actually careful to only show her album to people that liked THEIR pics . . . because she knows it is so beautiful and she wouldn't want anyone to feel sad.

Ok, love all of the fun art work that you have been doing. Well done...and the album is so cool. We had ours put together by My Publisher and it turned out really well. I definitely enjoy wedding albums like these much more. Hey, are you selling your Cooper Mini? I was so coveting that ride.
