I am spending this week teaching at an intensive photography workshop in Manitou Springs, CO! I'm super pumped about it, to say the least. I'm especially stoked about the fact that I get to stay with Madey in a sweet little cabin, with a cute sink, wood floors & a pantry (which only has granola in it currently).

We've had students since Sunday, and have been just been shooting non-stop and teaching non-stop... and of course, eating non-stop. ^_^ So, here are some of the students this week! 

An Explanation Of Absence.

Well, it feels as though it has been ages since I last posted! Apologies! My explanation is as follows: In the last 9 months, I have been very busy. I have become increasingly distracted by my growing relationship with my best friend,

Taylor Reavely.

To put it plainly, I have been very busy with the process of becoming engaged to be married!

Currently, I am in the throws of wedding planning and will most likely persist in my blogging absence—at least until my new life season begins. (I have been in this state since saying "yes!" on June 22nd)

I am getting married in 40 days.

"On June 22, his parents' 27th anniversary, Taylor asked Andie to be his wife, and she said "YES!" They were sitting in the back of his truck by a fire in the mountains in Trout Lake, WA, rehearsing again their love story that began in 5th grade. They had just finished reading letters passed back and forth over the past 13 years when Taylor got on his knee and asked Andie to marry him. The tears that ensued were long in coming and full of inexpressible joy."
