As these things generally happen, I got a wild hair one night when I discovered my website was rendering in all sorts of crazy ways and I didn’t know how/have the patience for a designer to fix it. So I found a beautiful template that jived with the S&L branding and decided to completely revamp the S&L website. As of right now I things are looking good but they can be better. Things will look a little wonky over the course of the next couple of weeks while I refine the site (okay, okay —while I try and learn how to do things myself). And  I most definitely  am NOT a web designer –so thanks so much for your patience and understanding.



You fly by the seat of your pants; you go with the flow. You are the one who always shows up 10 minutes after the movie “start” time because the previews and commercials  will be done then. You  get the primo seat away from the loudest popcorn munchers and trash talkers. Life happens on your schedule. No one else’s. And usually it works out.

You are in so much luck because this awesome photographer I know sort of made a cheapskate marketing error. I  experimented. “How will the year go without spending money on ads” I wondered. Uh…. here’s my answer:

Book your August, September, October or November  2014 wedding now!

Tara and Andre are destined for greatness–now that they’re married they’re sort of unstoppable. She’s a goddess disguised as a mere human being and the urban dictionary proves it:  Urban Dictionary definition for “Tara”.
But lest you think even for a moment this couple couldn’t possibly be the total package(I mean, really, what are the odds?)  meet sweet,  handsome Andre; who injured his finger just before our first meeting and sat there politely and uncomplaining while nursing the painful digit in a cup of ice.  That’s the kind of guy he is.

Here are some of their portraits because, well, I’m just kind of awed by how beautiful this couple is in so many ways. Later–we’ll have to take a peek at the rest of their awesome, simple, eclectic wedding. But for now. Sigh…
