But delighted with your results. Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing and for taking the time to write the intro of this couple. 7.24.09, 12:16AM

Heather Espana: Gorgeous as ever! And this might seem totally random, but it seems that whenever you post a photo of you on a shoot, you are always dressed both professionally and very creatively. I live in a fairly small town where the only place to buy clothes is Fredmeyer! Photogs around here seem to fall into the all-black-all-the-time clothing style. Bleh! I would love if you did a post sometime about Shoot Outfits — favorite/most comfortable/most unique things you wear, where you found them, putting them together, etc. Just a thought ;). Thanks Jessica! 7.21.09, 10:11AM

Ally: I like some of the photos, but some are waaaaaay too Photoshopped for me. hmmmmm. I like more natural photos, straight from the camera. Too much computer processing is distracting from the natural beauty. 7.21.09, 2:55AM
