Leila & Justin - July 17th

I was overwhelmed with excitement and anticipation when Leila told me that she was planning a CARNIVAL themed wedding and wanted me to shoot it! Her goal was to have a wedding that everyone would enjoy...and it was exactly that. There was cotton candy, a balloon artist, caricature artist, games, photo booth and much more. The reception was held out her parents house and it soon turned into a block party with all of the neighbors stopping by and offering additional parking at there houses.

AND Leila has a huge Lebanese family that I am seriously considering adopting! They were a blast to hang out with and the Mediterranean food was remarkable. I am really looking forward to seeing them all again at Mindy's (Leila's cousin) wedding in November!

    Josh thanks for helping make the day great. I know I didn't say a lot or give a lot of input, but it seemed like it really wasnt necessary with you behind the camera! You just knew what was right, and the poof is in the photos. Thanks again for everything.

  26. I wish that I could have been there to share in your memories. The pictures are truly amazing. I was most impressed with the pictures from the old amusement park. A round of applause for the photographer who made it possible for me to see what I missed in such vivid color and with love.
