It's Friday! And we're so pleased to meet you. :) My beautiful bride and I are "the Blumes." Actually, as artists and speakers in the photo industry, we'll meet many of you in-person next week at @rfwppi in Las Vegas! (Anyone here gonna be in our classes? Speak up! Its the USA's biggest photo show and we're not Vegas "types," so we need friendly faces to look forward to!)
.
To be honest, I wasn't happy before taking this self portrait. We had to update our headshots for promos, but I've been underwater with the conference prep and personal life (we have 3 kiddos too, been putting in long hours for a non-profit lately, and hosting an international student recently).
.
Life is never easy. But that's not what we aim for. We desire PURPOSE! And, yes, "peace" is an important part of that to us -- time with family and each other during this short, precious life. We don't want to become workaholics, all too easy as young entrepreneurs.
.
But Eileen was so excited, coming home from a rare hair/makeup appointment to surprise me. So I set aside my work and (I confess, with a bit of a scowl and a huff) set up the tripod outside our studio.
.
She does something to me. The moment I nestled in beside my girl, the stress melted. The joy came. That smile is not feigned. She is God's greatest blessing to me, my spirit's companion, the mother of our children, the love of my life. I love you, Pinaylina.

Working on edits for this lovely couple's engagement portraits from earlier this week, and I am LOVING the results -- they're so comfortable together, and it's hard even to pick a favorite sneak peek!
.
Couldn't resist the sunwashed warmth of this shot though! Can't wait to share more with you soon... :)

Tired of seeing my ol' hairy mug?...

Here's a nice change of pace!! A few faces to represent National Women's Day -- and represent it WELL! You seriously have to meet them...

Of course I'm especially proud to see my "better half," Eileen Blume, spotlighted by @ShootProof in this feature. (I love this creative, caring, wonderwoman!)

But these other featured women happen to be very near and dear to our hearts as well... and they are absolutely critical parts of the creative collaboration that our business does every day!

What an awesome way to spend this evening at the Ponce City Market! Loved these rockstars and their beautiful family. A couple sneak peeks for now... ;)

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. This couple knows what that means. Eileen and I also experienced it in our long-distance relationship early on (while she was working in Tokyo and I was in the USA).
.
The distance became a valuable tool for us -- allowing us to focus our frequent phone call "dates" on deeper conversation, rather than passive "dinner and a movie" experiences.
.
Lauren and Heath can relate. I loved spending this special evening with them -- a too brief respite together, before he returns to the road (playing baseball for the Colorado Rockies franchise). We're so excited to celebrate this couple's wedding soon and, in the meantime, to celebrate even this temporary period of waiting, longing, and growing together. It's all part of a beautiful journey!
.
Take a look at their full engagement session, featured fresh on the Blume blog right now...

Their wedding wasn't supposed to happen. It was a miracle. So was the news we heard from this couple today!
.
Listen, I seriously had to shout out a loud "hallelujah" in the studio when we heard it!
.
This couple's portrait actually hangs over our fireplace at the studio. Many of you have seen it here, but didn't know the SPECTACULAR story and emotional significance of this art piece.
.
Savannah and Andrew's wedding was made possible by Make-A-Wish, one of the organizations we donate our services to. Andrew, who was diagnosed with cancer, had just one wish. A wish he shared with his high school sweetheart, Savannah -- that they would be married.
.
Savannah was at his side throughout the battle. At such young ages, their strength together had been tested, and their maturity and love (beyond their years) was proven again and again.
.
Since their wedding, Andrew's cancer has been in remission. But repercussions remained. This beautiful couple came to terms with the likelihood they may never have a child biologically.
.
Now (I'm teary-eyed as I write it), we're celebrating with them as they just announced Savannah is pregnant!! We cannot wait to see this beautiful baby, and we thank God for His gift of life and love!! (Hallelujah, right?!)
.
Thanks to our partner vendors who made this wedding come true: Designer @emilyburtondesigns / Venue @btvrweddings / Video @upandupweddings / Cake: Crafty Cakery / Groom Cake @bakersmaninc / DJ @lethalrhythmsdj / Linens @nuagedesignsinc / Make A Wish @makeawishga
