We make connections in the darnest ways! Two years ago we met Darci + Dale while scouring Craig’s List. Yep, that’s right. We were adding a few key pieces to our new work studio and found a killer white tulip table. Little did we know we’d meet up with one of the coolest couples we’ve ever met. Walking into their home we immediately made a connection. They were gutting it (as were we), flipping it DIY style (as were we), had vintage furniture all over the place and they’re both architects!!! Yeah we were a bit in heaven. After talking shop we gladly purchased our table, exchanged business cards and stayed loosely in contact. Fast forward to a few months ago when we received an email from Darci explaining her challenge of finding a photographer for their very low key wedding shindig. Or as they called it the ‘Ha|Ru I DO’. We met over drinks and good grub to see if we could help them out. We could! WAIT… WHAT??? Yes we photographed a wedding. Their event was a very very very good exception to our rule…
The day before the wedding they invited all their closest friends and family to a ‘Field to Fork’ dinner hosted at the lovely Los Pablanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm. And of course we photographed the two of them before hand!
The next day we all trekked two hours into the Jemez Mountains where Darci + Dale have camped for many years. We thought this was so clever. A way to reserve their special spot out in the woods by claiming it as a reunion. Well it pretty much was!
We can’t thank you enough for making us feel welcomed and for continuing to inspire another couple who’s also passionate about their craft and relationship. Here’s to being more like you!
Some snapshots from our sunny afternoon spent with the Himes family last fall. We had close encounters with a herd of horses + one jack!!!
