Welcome! To those of you who are NEW to my blog…thanks for checking it out! Over the next several weeks I’ll be posting images from the last few months of 2012 as well as recent 2013 sessions. A few personal posts will be mixed in as well as I love for my clients to get to know me better and vice versa. So let’s get 2013 started off right with a little giveaway and conversation about one of my favorites things…TRAVEL!

Over the past few years, I’ve been able to travel to some amazing places. Some personal, some business…either way, I’m up for it! From Maui to Minnesota or Seattle to Spain, I’d love to shoot more weddings and fill up those passport pages. 🙂 On tap for 2013 so far? Sacramento, Tahoe, Mexico and Italy! If you have the travel bug like me, you’ve probably thought of your dream vacation or even the ideal location for your own destination wedding. Here’s my challenge to you…well, not really a challenge since it should be pretty easy…tell me your dreamiest, most ideal destination wedding location. Think about it for a minute… A tropical locale with warm weather and cold drinks? A castle in the mountains of Europe? A rooftop ceremony in the city? You tell me! All you need to do is add a COMMENT to THIS blog post. Already married? No problem! Tell me your ideal spot for a vow renewal! THOSE THAT COMMENT ON THIS BLOG POST will be entered into a raffle for a FREE MINI SESSION to take place in February or March AND a $25 Sprinkles Cupcakes Gift Card. The drawing will be random, but don’t spare any details in your comments…tell me where you’d love to go AND why! And someday maybe we can make that dream come true!!

Here’s a recap of the rules:

1. Anyone can enter! Single, engaged, married…anyone!

2. Think of the ONE place you’d love to travel to for your DESTINATION WEDDING OR VOW RENEWAL. Be creative…do you want to get married at one of those hotels made of ice? Love it!

3. Share that destination in a COMMENT BELOW and tell me why you chose that particular location. PLEASE make sure to include your EMAIL address in your comment.

4. ONE entry per person.

5. TWO winners will be randomly chosen next Wednesday, the 16th!

I can’t wait to read all of these!! 🙂
