Reilly & I were wandering around Scottsdale getting our favorite coffee [Cartel] & favorite eats [Chop Shop] & we found a rad old book store full of tons of really old editions with the coolest covers you’ve ever seen. And then.. I found it…

Never did I think I would find a book that was ›so me‹ I would have thought that I wrote it.

As it turns out, Cactus & Pine is just that. Written by the Arizona adventurer & explorer Sharlot M. Hall. [i.e. my new personal hero] Born in 1870 she was first lady to hold office in the Arizona Territory government & her personal collection of photographs and artifacts served as the starting collection for a history museum which bears her name. Can’t wait to go to Prescott & see all the she was up to!

Looks like we have a lot in common, I think we would have been great friends.

blacklineWhen I am being creative I am at my best. I’m like a moth seeking the light. That’s why I love weddings. Not only am I in my creative golden-zone, but everyone involved has been living & obsessing in their creative place for usually at least a year [but generally more!]. It’s like the best collaborative art project ever! My brides are seriously the BEST. I never even thought I would be a wedding photographer [in fact I had decided that I would never be one] but now I’m pretty convinced it’s the best kept art career secret. I cannot even imagine any other “work” that would be more awesome.

Think about when you are a little old feisty grandma & you can show your kick-ass wedding album to your grandkids when they are engaged. Not showing them some old files on your now out-of-date computer. All those photos flooding back all your best memories. Your wedding day will probably be the most fun day of your life! (I know mine was!)
