A Forgotten Post

personal Travel

I’m not sure how it all went down.  I think I just too busy and shifted the personal stuff aside.  So I’m now finally putting up a blog about Thanksgiving 2010.  Really its more about a trip we took out west and more importantly what we saw and captured.  A bit forgotten, a bit late, but here it is.

This past Thanksgiving we decided to visit my grandparents in Palm Desert.  Their main home is up in Seattle, but in the wintertime they re locate to the warmer parts.  It’s been years since I’ve been to Palm Desert, last time I was in high school.  It was awesome to go back with a new set of eyes, and to bring Eliot along too.  It was a short visit, but we made the most of it.  The day after Thanksgiving we ventured out to explore some of the desert.  I get excited by new scenery.

At one point we did get stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint, guess who forgot their passport?  Luckily he didn’t fit the profile.

Hearty Mexican food for lunch, and beer of course.

Southampton Engagement Photography :: A Stockholm Engagement
Wow, I'm a bit embarrassed. I have probably sat down to start a blog, a dozen time since my last post. Even now as I write this, I'm wondering if it will actually make it to being published and killing my 3 months of silence in this space. I'll try to rationalize it in another post, this one is meant for much greater things. The last stop on our European road-trip was Sweden. I am in love with Sweden. Such a beautiful and amazing place, and I'm lucky enough to have a cousin who lives in Stockholm with her fiancé. Let me just say, exploring a new city while doing an engagement session, has to be one of the best ways to see it. (Remember thi ...

New Forest Wedding Photographer :: Holly+Adam in Colorado
  Who could resist a reception with the Colorado mountains as the backdrop? I couldn't, nor would I when one of my best friends told me that's where she was having it. This girl has come to visit Eliot and I in almost every place we've lived (not the UK, yet...*hint, hint* Hol). She has an adventurous spirit, and it makes me so happy to see her with someone who's ideals match hers perfectly. I've known Holly since we were in high school and she's always been way cooler than me. She was friends with pretty much everyone, girls and guys, and has always had an infectious personality that people just want to be around. She always br ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Aaron and Maria
Christmas 2013 we were lucky enough to spend it in Maui with my family again this year. It turned into being the year of Hawaiian engagements, as we celebrated one of my cousins getting engaged this past summer, and two more got engaged before we left the islands. There was a lot of celebrating. My cousin Aaron is one of the funniest guys you've ever met, and his fiance Maria is the sweetest of all ::
