Progress!

What a productive week this has been! My office is almost fully unpacked, and I dropped off a bunch of stuff in the UPS box yesterday, and placed a bunch of album and print orders, woohoo. It's starting to feel like things are getting back on track.

And here's another sneak peek at my new "pad" - how cute is this street? And my little winding brick path through the garden?! Love it.

Of course I can always be contacted at kamila@kamilaharris.com

Allergies?!

I have never had seasonal allergies before, but I guess maybe because I moved to a whole new area, I'm not used to the pollen here? I have no idea. All I know is that I inhaled a whole bunch of pollen over the past few days and I think it's lodged in my lungs and laughing at me while I struggle to breathe. Ugh! So to all of you who are feeling like you just ate a bunch of sandpaper followed by hot coals, I feel your pain.

I also wanted to post some photos of my new office etc. but I figured, pictures of half-unpacked boxes in a room are not that interesting. For now, here is a shot of the front of the house, it's such a cool old house, the brick and woodwork around the house are so unique, I love it. Even things like the door hinges and radiators have all this detail and design. I can't wait to take some more photos once it's not all crazy in here!

First beach wedding of the year!

Cathy and Howie had an absolutely beautiful, perfect day at Crystal Point Yacht Club! The sky was blue and there was a warm breeze, and we got to take pictures on the beach and in the park in Spring Lake. The reception started on a great note when the bridal party walked in to Metallica. What a fun day. Thanks Cathy and Howie!

Today's Wedding


Crystal and Mike's wedding was just lovely! Their ceremony was so beautiful and romantic. Their vows were so heartfelt and the whole ceremony really was a celebration of their love. And they were a really fun couple, willing to do pretty much anything I thought up and also had some great ideas of their own.

Crystal's ceremony shoes

and her reception shoes


To get some unique portraits of the married couple, we found a couple interesting spots downtown Trenton, a spot Crystal picked out ahead of time.






the fountain was tempting....




The reception was lively and went by too fast!


Here's Crystal dancing it up with her new sister in law!


I love how crazy this shot is!


Crystal and Mike, thank you for letting me be a part of your day :) I had such a wonderful time and I can't wait for you to see all the photos!

Best compliment ever

"Jonathan and I have decided that you’re part ninja. Some of the shots you took, we didn’t even realize you were there! And our friends gave us a DVD of our wedding and we see this person in black zipping around everywhere not missing a beat, yeah it’s you totally showing ninja skills. You can tell us the truth, we won’t tell."

- email from Audrey

How awesome is that. LOL.

Jamie and Jason - a few teasers

Jamie and Jason are so cute together! I knew I was in for a fun day when I saw Jamie's room - I immediately noticed running shoes and a Nintendo Wii. And it really did fit with the couple's personality, they are adventurous and athletic, but also laid-back and totally cool. I had a lot of fun and wish them many many years of happiness.

Also I got to work with Craig from Well Spun Weddings. His shooting style was really unique and completely unobtrusive and I just can't wait to see the finished product.


A quick chat with Jason before the ceremony




Cutest.Thing.Ever. Jamie and Jason's yorkie, Mia, was the Best Dog. And yes, she is wearing a dress, made my Jamie's mom.






I loved how I got the sun-flare in this photo.


And then shielded the sun for a few non-sun-flare shots.




First dance - Angel by Jack Johnson






And I really liked how the tables each had a photo and location, with a little story about what the place meant to the couple.


P.S. Photographers - I used a multi-off-camera flash setup at the reception, resulting in that totally unique look which almost looks like movie lighting. To learn how to do this go to Digital Wedding Pro
