Matters of the Heart

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending an amazing gallery opening for one of my FAVORITE photographers Alison Conklin. You name it she shoots it! But what really drew me to her was the moments she captures in weddings and portraits. I have been following her blog for as long as I remember and was thrilled to be be invited to this gallery show. The show was called Matters of the Heart and showcased about 50 photos all about love. There was also a raffle that would donate money to The American Heart Association so it was a night for a great cause. We sipped on drinks, mingled and of course indulged in some cupcakes!





Everyone donned a pin from The American Heart Association to support the cause.


Me and Alison giggling at the end of the night. Check out her site of amazing work. She is both as great and talented photographer as she is a kind, and completely heart warming! It was such a pleasure to meet you Alison!!
