kathy + marcel {getting married}

This spring Beth and I lucked out with a beautiful day to photograph  Kathy and Marcel’s engagement session in B’ville.   Since that wonderful afternoon, I’ve discovered that Kathy and Marcel are super sweet and funny!  Turns out they live just up the street from me and I’m delighted to call them friends.

Sweeties!

Love the blossoms Beth captured…

This is my favorite shot of the day…

In just two days these two are becoming “Mr. and Mrs!”

Kathy and Marcel, we are so excited to see you on Saturday!  xoxo Alice

So honored that the lovely and talented wedding planner Kate Lemos Brown of Lovewell Celebration Design is featuring Meryn and Joel’s  Cooperstown Engagement Session on her inspiration blog the Lovewell Post.

Embarrassing as it is, I feel a bit like the little piggy from the Geico commercial, when  looking back on this incredibly fun engagement session with Meryn and Joel and all the baby farm animals at the Farmer’s Museum in Cooperstown.

giovanna + christian {married}

On June 11th, Giovanna and Christian said “I do” amongst their closest family and friends, some of whom had traveled half way around the world to be there.  Beth and I had the immense pleasure of photographing it all.

Giovanna and Christian are the sweetest people, and they had some lovely details to their day.  Just look at these gorgeous letterpress invitations by Bella Figura at Boxcar Press…

undefinedundefinedundefinedAll the folks in the b/w image on the right below traveled from Giovanna’s home country Italy!  Not only was the group super good looking, and stylish, they were a ton of fun as well!  I tired to pick up a few Italian words for the day.  Amicci de Italiano…

Loved these beautiful bracelets that all of the bridesmaids received as favors from Giovanna…

These two are so dang cute!

Christian’s new father in law presented him with these cufflinks at the rehearsal dinner, and I love Giovanna’s dress detail and bouquet!

For their wedding favors, Giovanna had all of these porcelain vessels hand painted.  Don’t you love these photographs that Beth made…

For a very long time now, I’ve wanted to go to Italy!   Now that I’ve had the pleasure of working with my first Italian bride, I’m sure I have to go there.  I’m just hoping it is sooner rather than later.

Giovanna and Christian thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, and most of all your open hearts!  We love you. xoxo, Alice

Josh - Just beautiful!

Giovanna - Alice and Beth, the pictures are outstanding! Christian and I were ecstatic to see them. All our family and friends have said how wonderful your photographs are. It was such a pleasure to have you photograph our wedding! Thank you so much.

Rose - Wow, her dress is stunning and the location so beautiful! Really amazing photos, loved the entire wedding.

Stacy - These photos look like they’re straight out of a magazine! :) And that last shot – LOOOOOVE!!!

baby mila {8 months}

On Tuesday, Beth and I joined Mila and her parents for Mila’s third session in her “Baby’s First Year” portrait collection.  You can see Mila’s earlier portraits at 4 months as well as her newborn session here and here.     It looks like life is good at 8 1/2 months old…

Typically when a parent wants to get their child/children photographed, they are thinking about getting one great portrait that they can share with family members.  I, however, always ask my clients to think beyond the immediate moment when collaborating on a shoot.   Just like all photographs, these images if properly cared for, can last for generations to come.  I’m sure when Mila is a young woman, she will want to see cute smiling portraits of herself as a youngster.  I’m even more certain that she will treasure any great photographs of her parents interacting with her as she is growing up.  To see how what they were like as young parents, to see the smiles and kisses they give.  To have a photographs that reminds her how much she is loved…

Love this awesome photograph that Beth captured.

Seriously, this next image melts my heart.

The magic and

hazards of bubbles…

Mila is growing so fast she is in the 95th percentile for height.

Love this proud mama image…

I can’t even imagine how this little wonder is going to grow and blossom before her next session!  Love you guys.  xoxo, Alice and Beth

Jenn - Beautiful set, Alice! And you’re so right – Mila will appreciate and cherish these photos when she is older. I wish my parents had done something similar.

Kim - Totally cute and adorable – and a true treasure!

Rose - Such a sweet face! :D How adorable! the photos with the parents are amazing, and gotta love the ones with her daddy.
