The Best of 2010

Its been hard for me to try and find the words to describe this year. There have been many… many challenges, obstacles, and changes. The funny thing is we wouldn’t do anything different than we did because it only made us stronger. When we thought there wasn’t more to learn, there was. It was a great year for this reason.

We have grown both professionally and personally this year. Looking back on 2010, we knew what we wanted but didn’t know how to get there. We enter 2011 with no fear. We are inspired by everything around us, the people we meet, and the people we photograph. We enter 2011 with nervous energy and butterflies in our stomach only to find the better part of us.

We know one thing for sure. We love where our photography is and we know there is only one direction to go and that’s up. We know what images we want to make and our clients will trust us enough to take those chances and risks. We wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for the clients who trusted us enough to capture the images we did this year.

Thank you to all of our clients who have taught us so much and trusted us to document their lives. Without you, Adam and I wouldn’t be where we are.

Here is OUR best of 2010, from every single wedding we documented this year.

Tiffany & Ed: Engagement

This time last year Ed had a plan. He was coming home for Christmas after serving his 3rd tour in Iraq for the Marines. He talked to his mom and told her it was time. He loved Tiffany and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. With the ring in hand he made his way home to Denver.

Just a few days before Christmas Ed made his way through the Denver International Airport and got on the train to finally see his family and Tiffany. As he made his way up the escalator toward the arrival gate excitement ran through his veins. He knew as soon as he walked off the escalator he would see her face.

Tiffany ran to Ed embracing him the way people do at airports. In a way that brings joyful tears to your eyes. Her Christmas was made, she had the love of her life home. She never expected what would come next.

In the middle of all the excitement Ed dropped to one knee. Camera crews from the local TV stations started rolling. He said, “I love you. And I’m going to love you for the rest of my life…” She said yes through all of her joyful tears. The hundreds of people screamed in excitement as Ed slipped that ring on Tiffany’s finger.

They are perfect together. They are goofy and love to have a good time. They wedding is going to be amazing and we can’t wait to be a part of it. Tiffany and Ed will be saying I Do in a few weeks, so until then you can enjoy a few highlights from their recent engagement session and check out Ed’s proposal courtesy of 7 news Marine Proposes At Airport.

TGIF ya’ll! 🙂

Louann & Corey: Wedding

When we first caught wind that Louann and Corey were going to get married Adam and I went into planning overdrive. This weekend was going to be epic… for us. Louann isn’t just anyone, she is Adam’s cousin. The wedding would be in Kansas which has been home for Adam’s family for years. So, there wouldn’t just be a wedding, there would also be a family reunion of sorts.

Of course for us Houseman’s it meant a family road trip was in order. We hopped in the car and headed to Kansas over Halloween weekend. This trip held a lot of firsts for us. Zoe’s first wedding, Zoe meeting many of her cousins,  and Zoe finally meeting Grandma Lou and Grandpa in “real” life not just over skype. And, of course there is Adam shooting a wedding (as a professional) with the film camera he first learned on 16 years ago. Grandpa just had to pull it out of the cabinet and give it to us the day before the wedding. Thanks Grandpa!

The weekend was always supposed to be about Louann and Corey, but it ended up being a celebration of family for us. Weddings always bring family together and we know that better than anyone. But, for us to be able to document the weekend, and do it as only we know how to do, meant more to us than anything.

Here’s to Grandpa Cox. Grandma Lou wearing blue at EVERY wedding. The late nights.  Crazy uncle Timber.  Scaring people in the hall of a sleeping hotel. Cousins that will love each other forever. Laughter and then some more laughter. More weddings (Eric and Tish hint hint). More grand kids. More family reunions, and of course Louann and Corey. We wish you and Louann all the luck in the world for a beautiful life together.

P.S. what would a great weekend be without a SLIDE SHOW. Make sure you check it out!
