January 4, 2010


I opened my eyes wide and tried to blink through the goop in the corners as I hit get mail on my computer. As the messages poured in, I sipped on a latte and contemplated going back to bed. Back to the warm, cozy sheets and the pillowtop mattress. Back to some much needed rest after a week long of weary. But instead, I just stuck with my Starbucks and started clicking through the messages.

And oooooooh snap, am I ever glad I did! Because had I gone back to the cozy sheets & pillowtop mattress, I would have missed this. An email so unbelievably awesome that it nearly made me spit said latte all over my screen. It was a note from the incredible folks at Junebug Weddings telling us we had been selected for their 2009 “Best from the Best” in wedding photography, y’know along with just a few other folks you might have heard of :) like Jose Villa, Elizabeth Messina, Chenin Boutwell and the amazing Bob & Dawn Davis.

So yea, like I said. Whaaaaaaaaaaat?!? Seriously thank you SO much to the folks at Junebug for giving us one heckuva reason to wake up this morning. If we could see you in person right now we’d give you the world’s biggest hugs and buy you a latte. Heck, I’d even spring for the toasted marshmallow syrup right about now! You guys rock our world!
