After the most inspirational weekend of my LIFE in California
with all of my favorite photographers,
I am beyond ready to hop back into the saddle of photographing…
I want to experience everything.
Do you have a new baby, a new house, a new husband, or even an old husband?
Phoenix and Scottsdale wedding, engagement, baby, and family photographer
with a photojournalistic approach. Documenting the real YOU.
Ahh THE weekend has arrived.
Today I am heading to California to “glamp” (camp) with many photographers,
all strangers, but a handful are my photography idols!!!!
We will learn, laugh, discuss, and learn some more.
With “the biggest rainstorm of 2014 so far” hitting the California coast as I type this,
I am sure to make memories and many adventures!
I am so happy and grateful for this opportunity…
Life is Good.
This blog isn’t what it used to be
(an overly passionate space where I would freely share my opinion).
One day, I started craving of privacy,
in a world where our every meal, every hour of every day is documented.
That is why I moved from a small town to a big city,
I needed a level of anonymity.
When I was back home in Michigan a few weeks ago,
I was crawling in my skin with familiar eyes trailing me anywhere I went.
I don’t like the feeling!
The other shift I experienced this past year was:
“Don’t explain your philosophy, embody it.”
I don’t need to be understood, nor do I want to share my views (shocker!)!!
And I certainly do not want to try to change anyone,
as I don’t want someone changing me!
Why does a stranger have to know the little perceptions that make up ME?
I want to be known for my art,
NOT for my opinion on a specific matter.
With that being said, social media has changed,
and it will continue to change.
I feel like people are spending a little less time on their computers
and more time on their phones.
So I certainly share a curated photo reel on Instagram about my life and my work.
(But let’s be honest, my life= work….
That’s another thing I am trying to change…One day at a time.)
Tyler and Jasmine… what a pleasure to meet you.
Being in presence of your ethereal love was electrifying, yet also silencing.
The kind where the birds stop chirping and just observe.
The kind where I stop chirping and observe.
And that is what I did.
Tyler designed and created Jasmine’s ring….
AND he MADE Jasmine’s flower wreath,
AND he bought her dress (she coincidently wore it the night he proposed)
AND he’s a doctor!!!
I didn’t think that was all in the realm of possibility either.
Jasmine with Via, and Tyler with Charlie: )
Even the dogs had coordinating outfits!!! I LOVE IT!!!!
I NEVER tire of a white/ivory/cream dress. NEVER.
Papago Park, desert, red rocks engagement session in Phoenix and Scottsdale
by Vienna Glenn Photography, a wedding and engagement photographer serving Arizona and Michigan.
Brielle, Nick, and I met up on their vacation in the desert,
away from all the stresses of Washington D.C., where they currently reside!
I LOVE their color coordinating outfits and accessories!!!
I LOVED Brielle’s idea of a gondola ride at the Hyatt in Scottsdale!
…..the balloons didn’t want to leave us:
