Now, I know this is a bit of bragging...but CHECK OUT this place where we stayed!!!
This was the front of the Rincon Ocean Villa.

There was a GIGANTIC dinning room, a spacious courtyard located in the middle of the house, a watch tower with a spiral staircase, and the MOST AMAZING backyard...with a large, color-changing pool and kick @$$ sunset view. In other words...heaven.

This is the back side of the property.

Here's a shot of Kylie & Jarrod's personal stalker-photographer. (What a weirdo!)

Ok...maybe there were two stalkers lurking about...

I am holding off on showing the cream of the crop photos from the wedding day so that we can present them in style at their reception in a few weeks, but here are just a few good ones to tease.

The amazing, beautiful, luxurious Villa that we stayed in had some wireless internet problems while we stayed there...so I wasn't able to get this uploaded to my kids before we got back... But, considering I fought the rising waves to write this a couple times, I figured I would get it posted nonetheless. :)

It's been a long, all-day trip...but pulling up to this AMAZING VILLA made it more than worth it. OH MY HOLY CHICKEN! This is definitely one of the most perfect places I've ever seen and I haven't even seen it in day light. Kylie & Jarrod's wedding isn't for a couple more days, but we are going to party Puerto Rican style until then. I took a picture from the watch-tower of this mansion just to document the beautiful scenery of the East. Maybe in the morning, I'll take another trip up the steep spiral staircase and get a shot of the beach scenery of the West! I just had to drop a picture on the blog to show off how excited I am to be here! I'm gonna go to a restaurant and have my first real meal of the day (Delta peanuts don't count)...later!

One short year ago, I got a speeding ticket on the way to the hospital, trying to get there in time to photograph Abigail before she was discharged. She was a couple days older than Cameron...but some of you might remember seeing the pictures...their recovery rooms were right next door to each other. How convenient,right?!

I love this shot...it looks like she's saying "Ooooh, no he will NOT touch my horsie!"

Valentine's Day...a day of love. And a perfect day for an AWESOME WEDDING!!!! AND, a perfect wedding to break in my new camera.
Alison has to be one of the most thoughtful Bride's I've had the pleasure of working with. First thing when I met her at the salon, she gives me a special Valentine's gift (A jar of delicious candies...that I almost immediately broke into). She was well planned and had a special thank you for everyone. One of her close pals, equally thoughtful, prepared a cute little Valentine's lunch and snacks before the wedding...so I had to include pictures of both.

Then...the glamor began. I had SOOOO many WICKED COOL images to choose from for the "Teaser collection"...and I must have had to go through them 3 or 4 times because I just had too many I wanted to show off.

Dirk...you KNOW you look!

I had to have sounded cheesy for asking, but I couldn't resist asking Alison if she'd done modeling before. She was a breeze to photograph. It was almost like she would read my mind... oooooo, baby... And, as her grandfather told me at the reception, she is as much Brains as Beauty. He's so proud of her.

This wedding, I was a bit crunched on time before the ceremony, so I delegated the job of getting a neat ring shot to my BB. I'm so proud of him. He incorporated Alison & Dirk's black & white theme by using the piano in the chapel. I LOVE this shot!

Right before the ceremony, I caught a last minute picture of Alison getting ready for the long walk down the isle.

Their Priest continued the thoughfulness and shared his Valentine's story during the ceremony.
A-Blog-Erickson-1013
...she does, he does...BAM! HUSBAND AND WIFE! Off to go celebrate, in style. My fearless wedding party braved the cold to get some photo love at the Nelson.

This is their one true SIGNATURE shot. Thanks to Alison, I now have a name for this particular creative imaging. (Thanks, Alison!) At our last meeting, I planted the little seed of the signature shot into their minds and ask what they "do" for fun. Alison told me she loves to knit, and Dirk told me he loves watching TV (basketball, usually). WALLA! PERFECT! Almost instantly I had the idea of this shot...and it was executed wonderfully. Dirk even brought his remote from home. I think I'm going to get a big canvas of this shot for my new studio space.

The REAL funny part about these pictures is that Alison had NO CLUE that her guests were behind her. (Surprise Alison) I think she just thought I enjoyed taking lots of pictures of her getting her first meal as married woman.

First dance. They worked hard for this. Those dancing lessons paid off!!!

Ok, and I had to include a picture of Emily & Andrew. I photographed their lovely wedding a couple years ago, and I was soooo excited to be able to see them again. (Kansas City misses you guys)
A-Blog-Erickson-1048
....I captures hands UP, and hands DOWN. HAHA! (I know...cheesy, right?!) :)
A-Blog-Erickson-1045
A fabulous wedding! (Thanks for a great Valentine's day photo assignment!)
