inspire me monday: photography!

there is nothing that makes me smile like amazing photography!

my obsession with photography began back in high school when i took it as an elective for 3 years and became the teacher’s assistant the last year. i just loved the process of rolling your film, taking the photos, and then developing your own prints. there was something so exciting about the anticipation of watching the photo paper float around in the developing solution and finally seeing the image slowly start to appear. it was like magic!

of course this was all before the digital photography craze! now you can see the photo once you take it. and if you are like me, you never even print them out…you just load them on your computer and use iphoto as a digital photo album to show off your images. but that’s more so my laziness! it’s not the same as real, inspiring, artistic, photography. whether it’s fashion, lifestyle, editorial, or wedding photography…i love it all!

one photographer whose work is inspiring is elizabeth messina. she has such beautiful wedding and lifestyle images, it makes you want to hang photos of perfect strangers in your house because they are so artistic. not only that…she is just a gem of a person! her blog kiss the groom is such a refreshing change from other wedding blogs. here you get to see her amazing work paired along with poetry, song lyrics, and other beautiful thoughts. i especially love her sharing bits from her personal images, her kids are the cutest! below are some of my favorite photos from her blog!

James - Elizabeth Messina’s work is awesome. I checked out her blog and took a peak at the photos of Leila & Tony’s engagement photos, and they are just mesmerizing, and I don’t usually say “mesmerizing”. Plus all of her work is film, very nice!
