We returned home last week after a fantastic week in Las Vegas at WPPI (an international wedding and portrait photographer convention). There were lots of amazing parties – and we didn’t go to a single one of them! Not that we didn’t want to, but we were the brave souls (insert your own word for ‘brave’ if you’d like!) who introduced the world of bright lights, smoke filled casinos, and non-stop energy to our 11 month old son, North.
Instead of all night parties, we thoroughly enjoyed our time over coffees, meals, and middle of the trade show floor conversations with some of the old and new friends that we have within the industry. We returned physically exhausted, but mentally and emotionally energized. It was so encouraging to listen to photographers speak whom we admire only to find that we are doing so many things the same way they are. Yet we are excited about the great ideas that we learned from others and are challenged to take Emily Faulknor Photographers to the next level this upcoming year. There are a number of ideas and services that we plan to implement that will make the experience and our services better for our clients, as that is what matters most to us. There is SO much to look forward to in this coming year!
We have had several of our blog followers and clients ask to see current pictures of North. Today, we thought we would answer those requests and take a break from posting wedding and engagement sessions.
So, here is our favorite kid in the world! North loves to go to the park and enjoy the playground. Here he is showing off his 11 month old playground skills, and swinging is definitely his favorite! North, we love you so much! Thank you for being an amazing child, thank you for your amazing heart and joy of life! You are truly a very special gift.

Allison and James are dear friends of ours. We were thrilled to get to spend some quality time with them shooting Allison’s Trash The Dress session. We get a lot of questions from brides about what a Trash the Dress session is and if you actually have to trash your dress. Allison proves that you can come out the other side and box your dress up again afterwards! Some people do choose to actually ruin the dress by rolling around in the dessert or getting up close and personal with the ocean. But for many people, it’s simply going places you wouldn’t or couldn’t go on your wedding day. It’s an opportunity to wear your dress again (as we all know how expensive they can be, why not put it to more use!) and make some fabulous art.
For any of you wondering about the details of the dress – Allison’s very talented sister, Jenna designed this dress just for her. Who knows you better than your very own sister?? This dress was perfect for Allison and such a treat for her to wear again after four and half years of marriage.
James and Allison – Thank you so much for your friendship, your love and your support. We are so blessed by you and we are so excited for what God has planned for your marriage and that we get to be a part of your journey. We love you!
Allison – You are SO incredibly gorgeous! James – you are the best tech guy out there – period!
