I’ve been out of town for the last 5 days working on a fun project with El Dorado Resorts, so today will be spent catching up on emails and getting ready for a big 3 day shoot all next week with Joy Thipgen, Dolci Odille, and Our Labor of Love(I can’t wait to unveil what we are up to). But, I couldn’t leave you without a little loveliness before taking off for the day and thought the vintage love shoot below was too sweet not to post…

Strolling through rows of vegetables, thinking about the life they will start together and the home they’ll make–it makes for a dreamy, hopeful picture. I really like that one.
