I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

Missy’s Trash the Dress Session

A month ago, I visited the Vancouver, WA/Portland, OR area and stayed with my best friend. She and I decided to photograph each other trashing wedding dresses on the beach for fun–And OH MY GOD, was it fun. Fun and freezing.

Before my little story…here are the photos I took of Missy. Is my best friend stunning or what? I mean, yowza. Her hubby is a lucky, lucky man.

Only–I totally lost my footing and fell face first into that icy water. Not one of my shining moments…but wow does it make a funny slideshow of pictures! (keep in mind these aren’t really edited…they’re pretty much raw images) Let’s all have a quick laugh at my expense…

Here I am running…

    You’re both gorgeous, and you both have amazing hair. But, hands down, I love the pic of you laughing best of all. :-)

    Gorgeous beach too- I’ve never seen a beach with so many perfectly placed little plants! It looks landscaped!
