fotos, fotos, fotos

the countdown to our wedding is coming up on 4 months. save the dates have been sent out (will post images soon), so now people know that there's something going down for real. we've already started to hear back from friends and family that they love our card and can't wait for the wedding. we can't either, but we also know there's a lot more planning to do to make it the best party we've ever thrown!

before i start creating the really long list of to-do's we have yet to get to, i'm going to tap myself on the back because we've got one of the most important tasks crossed off. yay for us, because we've got one of the best photographers to capture our day. that alone makes me feel like the wedding needs no other planning. i'm serious. she's that awesome!

she is none other than ms. sarah yates. i came across her photography when i was researching the ace hotel in palm springs for a possible bachelorette party. my google search presented me with this lovely arrange of photos taken at the ace. i fell in love with the dream-like 70's essence immediately, and thought, 'i wish i could have pictures of me like that! those are the type of pictures i want to show my kids someday'. coincidentally, i stumbled upon those photos while also searching for the perfect photographer, and thought it wouldn't hurt to contact her. so i did. and it just so happened that her personality reflected the beautiful, artistic and creative photographs she takes. and, boom! just like that we had to have her.

*see sarah's photos from the ace hotel that made me fall in love here.

my fiance and i had the honor of meeting her in person to chat and instantly found a friend in her. knowing that she's going to be there on our wedding day brings a smile and giggle to my face and a sense of ease that she's going to capture the day exactly the way i've always dreamed. my fiance and i have already talked about how we can't wait for her to take our family portraits (once we make cute little babies of course!), but one thing at a time. slow down junia!

if you want to check out more of sarah's photographic awesomeness, she's got a picture a day blog that herself and super talented boyfriend, lou mora have going on: birds of a feather.

I just checked out her website and it's truly incredible! I love the one of the woman whipping out her flask :P Seriously though, she captures such wonderful, blink & you'll miss it moments.. and no one of it is at all corny or "done"
I'm so excited for you and your wedding! and I'm happy you'll have such a great photographer to cherish your memories of that very special day :)
