Everywhere I look these days there seems to be a new magazine coming out with my images. I love it, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. :) So the latest only my Aussie friends will see in print but here are the magazine spreads from Kathryn & Siimon's gorgeous gorgeous wedding at The Parker Palm Springs last month.

I met Laura & James on a Thursday, the day of their intimate yet exquisitely stylish wedding and it was love at first sight/ sound...for me. Not only did they turn out to be a stunning couple, but I also learned that they both have the most adorable british accents...and don't ask me why but I love English people. Perhaps it reminds me of my own English heritage...or perhaps it's the dark, self-deprecating sense of humor but I am this close to wallpapering my house with the Union Jack. But I digress. Not only are Laura and James cute and funny but they are kind-hearted and so deeply in love...with one another and with their families. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with them at The Parker in Palm Springs. I was equally delighted to spend the day with their fabulous coodinator, Fancy Nancy and wedding

You might remember Jay and Mike from their really fun 500 Days of Summer inspired engagement session a few months back. Their wedding took place at The Parker Palm Springs, one of my all time favorite wedding venues...on New Year's Eve. With a color palette of black & white with splashes of red, white lanterns illuminating the after-dark ceremony, photo booth and New Years hats and crowns, it was a glamourous but laid-back and really fun atmosphere.

I can tell you from experience that getting up the day after your wedding to do another photo shoot isn't easy. My husband and I dragged ourselves out of bed around noon the day after our own wedding when my good friends Nicole & Brad Wolf showed up at our hotel loaded with gear and assistants to photograph us for our "Mr. & Mrs. Session". We were both exhausted and could have easily just slept the day away if we'd been allowed to, but in the end we were so so glad to have the images that we now have hanging on our walls. The truth is, most couples these days don't particularly want to spend their whole wedding day posing for pictures, and I can't blame them. I always try to make the most of every second that I have with a couple on their wedding day. Sometimes it's a
