California Trip: Kelli + Sam Engagement / Anniversary Painting!

First things first. I love my husband…A LOT! For our one year wedding anniversary he commissioned Kelli Murray to do a painting of us. Kelli Murray has been my favorite artist for years and I just never thought I would have a painting from her! This is quite possibly the best gift I have ever been given. I just adore her birds, the stripes, the sort of sloppy backgrounds with the more refined subjects…ahh its all just so great and she couldn’t have made our hair more perfect! To top it all off, it is about 3 1/2 feet tall! I simply love everything about it. She does such consistent and amazing work – you can see more of her work at and she also has an etsy store!

Our anniversary was in June but since we were going to California in August we decided to pick it up then. Since we were there we also did an engagement session for Kelli and Sam. Going back and putting this blog together just reminds me how much I want a tilt shift lens again!

Sam works at Nixon and they have the coolest watches I have ever seen! I had never heard of that company before but you should really check out all the cool stuff they have!

Megan {Shabby Blogs} - These are gorgeous, you guys! Love them all! Heard about you at The Maternal Lens and had to hop over. I am stoked that you are here in Michigan! (I live in Grand Rapids.) Will you be doing any workshops closer to home? Do you think you guys will ever branch out into child photography? Let me know if I can ever do anything to help. Best of luck to you guys…and keep up the great work!
