Happy Halloween | Why I should not have children...

 Happy Halloween my little gremlins!

Little Miss Ferguson would like to wish you all a very happy Halloween.  She'd also like to thank you for sharing in her misery as she is forced to endure the shame of being the only cat of the three made to wear not just one but two lame costumes this year.  Truth be told, Cleo looked like she might pee her little fur pants and Clyde would have taken my eyes out.  It's an odds game, really.

I hope you all have a safe holiday and that the toothpaste, peanuts, and crayons are at a minimum this year.

Anna + Jason | Fall-ing in Love


In honor of the fabulous holiday that is Halloween (only second to Christmas in my book), I waited to post this fun engagement shoot from earlier in the month with the charming Jason and my self-proclaimed bride-twin, Anna.  I adore these two, who are the first in a string of couples this month who began their session at a bar, a trend I'm really starting to enjoy.  We met up at Buckley's in Belltown which turns into an insane University of Michigan (Anna and Jason's alma mater) bar on Saturdays when the Wolverines are playing.  It's really quite impressive, if you're an alumni and for some reason did not know about this, I highly suggest you get you butt over there this weekend. You can thank me later.

After much key jingling, flag waving, and general ballyhoo, we were off to their Queen Anne apartment to goof around with their adorable tiger, or rather tabby, Magglio Ordonez, and do a little pumpkin carving!  :) I love engagement sessions that 1.) allow me to shoot fun stuff 2.) participate in said "fun stuff" and 3.) play with cats.  So needless to say, I hit the trifecta.  I even got to share their super cool specialized pumpkin carving tools.  AND these guys are AWESOME.  Seriously, you just can't beat that.

Anna and Jason, I have a feeling we'll be hanging out again soon, you just let me know when the gingerbread houses are being decorated and I am SO there for round two.

Julie + Jordan | Kirkland Fun Time

This past Sunday I had the joy of spending the afternoon with Julie and Jordan and their adorable dog, Houghton.   We met up at the Kirkland waterfront and tooled around for a bit before heading over to the Wilde Rover for a quick pint and some nachos (they make theirs with potato chips!).  After our brief respite, we were back to the waterfront for some pier-jumping and, dare I say it, a little skipping.  We stopped by their place to grab Houghton and finished our lovely afternoon with an unexpected jump in the lake (well, Houghton, at least).  

Thank to Julie and Jordan for hanging out, I SO enjoyed chatting about The League, Hot-Lava-Monster, and awesome immature things you can do during conference calls.  Love you guys and I am now, even more than ever, looking forward to the fun of your wedding next year!!!!

Kay Kay + Socrates | Come Fly With Me

The most true thing I could possibly say about Kay Kay and Socrates is that they are awesome.  I don't mean that casually.  I mean, like seriously super awesome. Sweet and kind and crazy creative.  These two simply ROCK.  Now, if you don't know these two and are thinking that perhaps I'm getting a little overzealous with my affection for them, let me just throw out a few tidbits regarding their beautiful wedding day...

1. Their reception was at the Future of Flight Museum. SO COOL!

2. Kay Kay kicked it in a pair of drool-worthy blood-orange Dolce & Gabbana peep toes the entire day.

3. Socrates rocked a pair kick ass Pumas.  Sneaks on your wedding day? Genius.

4. Socrates surprised his beautiful new wife with a private helicopter ride to their reception.

5. There was a roast pig!

6.  A build-your-own cupcake station, need I say more?

7.  After their ceremony, their bridal party waved their hands in the air (basically like they just didn't  care) as the couple made their way back down the aisle to Naughty By Nature's Hip Hop Hooray.

8.  Kay Kay had three wardrobe changes- her wedding dress, her traditional Thai dress, and a sassy reception dress fit for partying.

9. Just look how wicked awesome those bouquets and boutonnieres are!

10. The amazing Fly Six B, one of the hottest dance troops in Japan, danced at their reception (another awesome surprise Soc had in store for Kay Kay and she FLIPPED!)

I told you, awesome.  There was also a dance-off and fabulous food, wonderful people and the coolest bridal party.  Oh, and I cannot forget to mention how stunning their invitations were, made to look like airline tickets, which were thought up by Kay Kay and designed by her fabulous stylist and candlelighter, May Praseuth.  I'm telling you girl, you need to quit your day job and start up a paper design company. Those invites were dope!!  And I am not one to just throw that word around. 

Thanks to Kay Kay and Soc for sharing their amazing day with me, I know I've made amazing friends in you two and cannot wait to see what is in store for your very bright future together.

love you guys!!!!
