Alabama Wedding :: Will + Ali

August 25th, 2009  |  Posted in weddings

Will and Ali, you rock! I am so glad I got to go home to Pensacola, Florida for a friend’s wedding in June. Ali is the sister of Caroline McDaniel whose wedding I featured here. I grew up with the McDaniel sisters and it was so much fun sharing this time with them and their family. I was lucky enough to be a guest, but I just couldn’t help myself from shooting too. So take a look at this beautiful wedding in Foley, Alabama.

I’m always searching for the “bigger picture” (pun fully intended), looking for the unexpected shots that fill in the details of the wedding story. This is a great example. A tender moment captured between formal portraits.

If you follow this blog you know I am a bit obsessed with baked goods so you know I mean it when I say this cake by Betty Weber was GREAT. By the way, Betty also made my wedding cake years ago.

Congratulations Will and Ali.

Fun Food Friday :: Crave Cupcakes, Houston

August 7th, 2009  |  Posted in fun food friday

Cupcakes. They have been the thing for awhile now, but until a few weeks ago I hadn’t found a place that does them really well. If you follow this blog you know I have seriously high standards for baked goods.

Crave Cupcakes in Houston, Texas has perfected the art. It is a small store that makes everything right in front of you. I love just about everything I have eaten there especially their gingerbread breakfast cupcake. It’s really just a gingerbread muffin, but oh so yummy, and the only time I’ve had gingerbread that could remotely compare to my own.

If you’re craving some Crave, arrive early because they run out of the breakfast cupcakes around 9:30am and don’t make more during the day.

The Chocolate Mint tasted like an Andes mint. It’s one of the rotating flavors. You can check available flavors using their online schedule.

Box of fun!

If you want to go, just yell at me and I’ll be there.
