One of my best friends growing up got married today. She married another one of our friends that we've known since the 7th grade. The ceremony was so sweet, they're perfect for each other.

My husband and I decided to check out the local farmer's market today. They had a plethora of things to buy, from farm-fresh produce to tie-dye shirts, jewelery and more.

The good 'ole days

Thursday, July 12, 2007

When I worked as a photographer for BYU's paper The Daily Universe, I was able to shoot all the time and I loved it. Since I've moved back into the editorial departments of newspaper work I've missed being behind a camera all the time. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love writing and wouldn't feel complete without it, I just miss my photography life. Here's a few of my favorite shots from "the good 'ole days." They are all favorites for different reasons, but mostly because they all had such fun stories behind them.Declaration: My ex-boyfriend (who I was still crazy about) was friends with these guys whose band was playing at the BYU battle of the bands -- and I had been assigned to shoot the event. So there I was, camera around my neck running back and forth in front of the stage with my ex and his roommates/buddies right behind me. They kept poking me and calling out my name while I was trying to work. I was able to get some cool shots anyway. . . and now less than a year later here I am, married to my ex.

Stacy: This is my brother's girlfriend. I had just got my camera for Christmas and we were up at my parents cabin and I couldn't wait to try it out. I spent the whole day hanging out with my brother Geoff and Stacy snapping shots of them.

Red Bull: Our photog department had been trying for weeks to get a picture that went along with a story a reporter had written about how students used energy drinks to aide them with studying and the negative side-effects. One morning I walked downstairs only to find my roommate had used Red Bull to pull an all-nighter writing papers and studying for exams. Like any good photographer, I was prepared!

Homeless man: A reporter was writing a story about the homeless situation in Provo and told me to drive around and find someone who looked homeless. I found this man who was very nice until he realized I was with a newspaper. He then proceeded to run away from me but I managed to snap a shot before he got too far away.

Swimmin' time

I love national holidays because then my hubby gets paid days off and we can play all day. For the 4th we went to my parents house and enjoyed the beautiful weather, the great company and of course. . . the pool.
