Tiffany & Dan :: Engagement Session

I fell in love with Tiffany the moment I called to tell her she had won my free wedding package giveaway last November.  We met for the first time a few weeks ago.  She was waiting by the bar at Lucky's; I was running late.  We spent close to three hours talking that night; I didn't even know how long we had been talking until I got in my jeep to leave.  I couldn't wait to do this engagement session for her and Dan!  So, as promised, here are some highlights from Sunday's session.

We did this session down in the Westbottoms, where pigeons run rampant.  One of the pigeons made himself quite comfortable with Tiffany... she officially became my first "bird bombing" on a session :)
Their wedding will take place in Mexico this November.  I have the honor of photographing their reception when they return in December... I can't wait!

Tiffany and Dan, words cannot express how excited I am to be your photographer!  I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!  You guys are perfect for each other!  I am so happy to have met you both!

I love this face!

I was up early this morning, with a lot on my mind.  I've spent most of this morning in a flurry of editing, and took a break to remember, and reflect on what makes me happy.  This face.... makes me happy.

Tiffany & Dan :: Sneak Peek

This afternoon, I met up with the winners of my free wedding package from my bridal show last November.  Click Here for the post on that contest.  We met up at The Cashew, and then headed down to the Westbottoms.  Here are a couple of images from this afternoon.  Look for a full blog post later this week!

I had a blast with these two, and can't wait to share the images from today!

Monday night, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a fundraiser for The Children's Center for the Visually Impaired.  The fundraiser, CCVI Food Fight, was held at the Liberty Memorial/World War I museum.  As I mentioned in a previous post, the mission of the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired, is to prepare children with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world. CCVI is a place where disabilities become abilities. It's a place of acceptance and love, and gives children and their families a hope for their future.
The Food Fight was an Iron Chef inspired event, with three of Kansas City's finest chefs battling it out in the spirit of supporting the children at CCVI.
Here is a list of the chefs who competed in the cook off:

Debbie Gold from The American Restaurant http://www.theamericankc.com

The chefs had one hour to create a dish based on a pantry of preselected items, and on one secret ingredient.  The secret ingredient, which was Anise, was introduced only moments before the competition began.
I was so honored to be a part of this evening, and was able to capture many images, thus there will be a second part to this blog post in the next few days.  Here are some of the moments experienced at Monday nights fundraiser.

It was hard to stay focused on photographing... I was drooling over all the amazing food!

Audrey is one of the students at CCVI, and came out on stage to draw the winner of the raffle prize, as well as help to introduce the secret ingredient.
I loved the set up on stage.... Looked just like the show!

30 minutes into the competition, Colby from BlueStem realized he had plenty of time left, 
and decided to take a little wine break :)
And now to the best part!

Lon Lane of Lon Lane's Inspired Occasions http://www.inspiredoccasionskc.com was one of the judges for the evening, as well as one of the main organizers for the event.  He did an incredible job of bringing everything together.
Lon, I know CCVI thanks you greatly!

In the end, Debbie Gold won the cook off.  

This was such a fun evening, and for a very worthy cause!  Look for part two on this event in the next few days.  I'll share more images from the event, as well as a list of local restaurants that participated, and provided us with many tasty and delicious dishes.

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
