Italy: A Love Story, Day Two

April Williams Destination, Travel Leave a Comment

Unfortunately, not having slept as well as I had hoped, I actually discovered that I was sick with a bit of an intense cold and our time was all wonky, I still woke up to a beautiful morning in Mestre.  We were staying just outside the main city of Venice and it was wonderfully quiet.  The early morning birds had …

Italy: A Love Story, Day One

April Williams Destination Leave a Comment

In a way I’m a little unsure how to start this story. I guess from the beginning, which is simply that I’ve dreamed of going to Italy my whole life. I really can’t tell you what had me so drawn in, but I’ve always loved Italian food, good Italian food, and the old houses and history and wrought iron and …

This is the exact question I asked Liz and Chad when I had finished working on their wedding photos. I am in love with these photos and I think I may be in love with Liz and Chad. I think you will be as well once you see these photos. The Dammarells are adorable, wonderful, fantastic and very in love. …

Where the Party’s At

Forget New Year’s, this wedding was the party of the century.   There was something for everyone.  Do you fancy a snow cone?  Check.  How about a hoppin’ party with a DJ who’s got it?  Check.  Fantastic food brought to you by one of Portland’s best food carts?  Check.  A truck full of beer on tap?  Yes, literally a refrigerated …

A Few of my Favorite Things

I have been dying to blog about this portrait session, but I have been in the throes of wedding season and just have had my head focused on weddings, weddings, weddings.  Which, by the way, I love and don’t blog enough about I’ve realized.  They really are one of my favorite things to photograph.  I think partly because, really, my favorite …

Cool by Association

I am not the cool one in my family, cute, sometimes funny, but not the cool one.  The cool one is my brother.  I’m not saying this in a jealous way, I’m saying this in a “yeah, I’m with the band” kind of way and in this case, that statement is completely true.  Part of what makes my brother cool …

Spring Installment 2

April Williams Uncategorized 4 Comments

While I know that it’s the middle of June, and I don’t think technically spring anymore, I had just a few more things to say about spring. First, I already miss it. Second, there’s a field I pass on my way to church every Sunday that, in the spring, takes my breath away.  There are two places in the world …
