Tim & Michelle, E-Session

Sunday night I hopped in the car with Tim and Michelle and we went on a little photo-adventure! We headed to a pumpkin patch, a park, a cool spot in downtown Mountain View, and a super fun playground with a swingset. I normally stick to the downtown scene cause I'm really an urban-girl....but I LOVE stretching myself to do something different.

Michelle has such an incredible smile! Of course, it helps that she has such a great guy to smile about. ;) Tim is currently working with me to design a brand new...super awesome...Jillian Kay Photography website. I am soooo excited!

In fact, I almost didn't quite know whether to be more excited about the new website, or Tim & Michelle's wedding next month. After chatting about the details in the car...I'm definitely more excited about the wedding. :)

Here's the fun fun slideshow!

Corinne & Tanya Hit the City Streets

i'm not quite yet rich and famous, so currently I rent a room in a house with 3 other roommies. now the house itself is old, 70's funk, and a little yucky. our landlord and the leasing company are in some sort of dispute, so the place hasn't had new paint or carpet in forever! BUT...I love my roommates, and the place has a built in bar for parties, so it's worth putting up with a few stains. :)

A week and a half ago, I had the pleasure of taking one of my roommies Corinne & friend Tanya out for a photo shoot! It was a BLAST. The abosolute funniest moment happened when Corinne put on the marilyn monroe dress...and it actually flew up over her head. I have a picture....but I'm not going to put it on the internet!!

Anyway, thanks gals for coming out with me, and for taking me to dinner afterwards! It was awesome to have a night out with the girls for once. :)

Here is your AWESOME SLIDESHOW, and a handful of my fav's:

Sandra & George - Engagement Session

Monday night I headed into San Francisco for a super fun engagement shoot with gorgeous a couple! Since they live in Texas, I haven't seen Sandra and George since we met at a Sonoma winery earlier this year. I sent her a link to the photos of my trip....and the rest is history. I'll be shooting their amazing Somona wedding in October and I can't wait!

Check out the slideshow to see how much fun we had!

Oh, and I'm excited to get to use a new song from a very talented musician, Jake Bouma! I expect that we'll be hearing his songs on the radio in the future, but for now you'll have to settle for hearing "Stuck" on my slideshow! It's been stuck in my head for days. :)

Mr & Mrs Kendall!!

Sunday afternoon Bridgit and Chris took the big plunge! I was so excited to get to know both of them along with their friends and family. This was one fun group! But you can find that out for yourself with the slideshow!!

The church had a great big sanctuary with tall windows along the aisles. At the very front of the church was a huge, beautifully lit cross, which shown more brightly and clearly than anything else. During the special music in the ceremony I could just barely make out Bridgit mouthing the words "stop that!" and trying not to giggle....turns out Chris was dancing for his bride. :)

At the reception, they had an adorable orange & white cake with a bow and beadings around the edge...but each table had it's very own super cute cake with an edible bow on top! Each one had a unique flavor and style...what a cool table center-piece! Our table had carrot cake with cream cheese icing and a yellow bow...sooooooo delicious.

Jason's Photoshoot

Hey everyone! I've been a little blog-MIA lately....but not because I haven't been busy! My computer decided a little down time. :) With the help of my awesome friend, James, the computer is running again and better than ever! And I'm not allowed to try to change partition allocations on my own again, lol.

In the meantime, I've had the awesome opportunity to work with and assist two awesome photographers the past two weekends. Those weddings were a blast, and when I have a little catch-up time (hopefully!) I'll post some images.

But last night I had so much fun running around downtown shooting Jason! He's an awesome guy and a cool local radio personality. He, Sandy, and I laughed non-stop...I was afraid I wouldn't get any shots from laughing too much!! Luckily Jason's a natural at this, so even a barrell full of monkeys couldn't stand in the way of awesome photos!

Check out the full sneak-peak slideshow here!
