Photographs with Energy, Emotion, and Action

While our house made it out of Hurricane Ike relatively unscathed, our dear friend, Camella, can't say the same.

A tree crashed through her house during the Hurricane. At least half (if not her entire house) must be rebuilt.

In the meantime, we're storing some of her stuff at our house, and I had the opportunity to look through her wedding album. I was a bridesmaid in the wedding this past April, but I haven't looked at all her pictures in one place since then.

I wrote a post a while back complaining that most of the "wedding porn" I see on the internet focuses more on the surface details of the wedding rather than the energy, emotion, and action of a wedding. I loved looking at her photos and seeing exactly that!

P.S. Everything is going to be fine with Camella. We packed up her stuff today, and she found a temporary apartment. She's actually excited about the prospect of redesigning her house. Kudos to her for her optimism, positivity, and resilience!

Talk about a silver lining, it would be fun to redesign a houe, but a tough way to go about getting it!

girlfriend - you have got to ditch the rest of the wedding blogs and just read Offbeat Bride. For serious. The shoe shots are enough to drive anyone mad. Ditch 'em. That's all most of my girlfriends read, if they read anything. Ok, a few others pass my test, but it sounds like you need a strict indie wedding diet for the moment!

And I love her wedding dress.

And I'm sorry about Ike. Sigh.

ah, Ike...the bane of my existance for the past 6 months. I have noticed, though, that many people ARE taking it in stride and viewing it as an opportunity to update and re-do. it's amazing watching everyone come together and really TRY to get their lives back in order after that. Very uplifting. And plenty of opportunities for volunteering. :)
