April + Grant = Midtown Lovin'!

I had the pleasure of shooting April and Grant's e-session recently and since we are both midtowners...we thought it would be fun to run around our own backyard to document the love that is - April + Grant! We met up at Hina's Tea (my new favorite place!) but I quickly realized that we were missing someone. April and Grant have the most adorable little wiener named - Bruzer. The 2 ran off to get him and then we were off on our midtown escapade. Even though I live in midtown - I was surprised by all the little photographic treasures that revealed themselves to me that day. It seemed like everywhere we turned there was something just so perfect for the shot that I have never noticed. Bruzer and I got off to a rocky start...he wasn't too sure of me at first but by the end of the day...it was us against the world!
Here are just a few of my favorite shots of the day.



Midtown has some amazing murals and I have always wanted to shoot a couple in front of this one. Thanks for making my dreams come true kids!





I usually tell my couple that I won't ever make them do anything I haven't done myself - but this was not the case. I have never rode a tandem bike and they did pretty good on their first time out. Bruzer was bummed though - he got stuck with me and was not a happy camper.







This is my favorite from the day! We were walking past a thrift shop and out of the corner of my eye I see a bin of old ken and barbies...and look what I found! A crocheted wedding Barbie - I don't think I ever saw this version on the shelves. Well - there were some pretty interesting looking Ken dolls but Grant was not about to be represented by a 1980's Ken doll with pink hot pants...I totally understand!



Is it just me or does it look like Bruzer is about ready to eat Bridal Barbie and she is giving him the look! I love it! I think I may have to go back and buy her...she's kinda growing on me the more I look at these pics.

Thank you so much April and Grant for entertaining my kooky ideas! I absolutely adore you both and am so excited to be capturing your wedding day.

Hi! I have visited your blog by chance, my name is Karmen Salazar, and I was looking for my name in google and I found your blog. I have never met someone with (more or less) the same name as me, and well, that's funny, but I really wanted to congratulate you because of your photos, I have felt very surprised with them, I like so much your style.
Keep on taking photos!
