My weekend

I pretty much worked non stop all weekend and although I'm a bit tired, hungry, and completely sunburned.... it was awesome!

Fun!







Thanks for sharing over 500 things that make you guys smile. Whenever I had time I would check in and get a fun energy boost from all of your comments. I picked a few people at random to send a special gift to in the mail!

Dear sunburn... you were totally worth it.

I always love looking at your photos and your creative decorating ideas. I was looking around at some blogs today and came across this one which reminded me of you (like the things that you put on your wall). http://thehillsarelivin.blogspot.com/2010/06/butterflies-in-house.html

Jamie said...

Hahaha the last picture looks like you have a camera for a face. That thing is huge! (The camera not your face.)

:D

colormekatie said...

haha yeah! It's definitely the size of my face!

Ah that looks so lovely! I'm glad the sunburn was worth it, because that looks pretty brutal!

Lee said...

That bubble bokeh is amazing! How did you get those rainbow colors?! And beautiful wedding photos. They will treasure them always.

Leti. said...

Hey, Katie! I´m from Brazil and I´m a big fan of yours! You take wonderful pictures and I love your 'sunny-mood', that always make me a little bit happier. I wish you all the best - specially for your burned arms.

Love,

Leticia.

Heidi said...

Hi Katie,
I rarely leave a comment, there are always so many ahead of me that I doubt you would see it if I did. But tonight I'm here early!! Yay.
I want you to know how much I always enjoy seeing what you're up to, your photos are smile inducing! I love the bright colors and the energy you seem to exude, and the ability to capture happiness in a photograph.
Thanks for being a happy part of my day, I always leave here with a smile!!
XO

kelsie rae. said...

Heather Taylor said...

Ouch! Epic sunburn!

Anagon =) said...

i love your photos, especially the blowing of bubbles :) made me smile ;-) have a good week!

zerlindasaurus said...

You should grow an Aloe :) They're so cute and when you get sunburns just cut a piece off and cut it open and wipe it on.

Operation Smiley Face said...

Wow the bride and groom in the woods is a STUNNER. I also like the shot with the bubbles and the Merry-Go-Round. Great colors in both of those. Sorry about the burn. Be sure to have that sunscreen handy next time. LOVE you work.

carly said...

what lense are you using in the last photo?

Chelsea T said...

Katie,
Your work is just so very inspiring and optimistic, I swear it could brighten anyone's day!!!
youa re so very talented and creative!!!
I most especially like the last wedding photo within the trees/forest. You can even capture a colourful happiness in oyur pro wedding photos that you do in your standard ones that portray an everyday life bursting with energy and colour!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR WORK!

sunburns are only worth it when you got them on an awesome day. most of my upper body (arms, shoulders, chest and back except for the straps where my top was) are burnt but it was the best day in a while...

lukewarm, almost cold showers usually help me.

brlracincwgrl said...

Ouch! What a sunburn! Those are gorgeous photos! Thanks so much for sharing :).

Brightened my day, definitely!

Amber Kirkwood said...

Totally getting people at my job into your blog. They love it. Expect alot of new members :)

colormekatie said...

haha that's awesome!!

sophia tangerine said...

wow! such beautiful pictures! i loooove the second to last one of the couple (the forest looking one)...where is that?!

laynemarie said...

Just so you know, you're photographing my wedding. When/if I get married, ha! And can you be in charge of decorations too? Seriously. I'll be flying you down to Florida. Just a head's up. ;)

tRiSh said...

oooh, it must hurt... hope you've got a good cream to put on..

Really love the wedding/couple pictures, they're so lively and beautiful =)
thanks for sharing.

bec said...

i love your wedding pictures! too bad i don't live in new york and too bad i'm already married...

Talán valahol. Egyszer. said...

Dear Katie!

Thank you for making me smile when everything else fails. :) Your blog is awesome, and so you are!

Hugs, Zsófi

Irina Sarnetskaya said...

Aw, apply fresh, slimy aloe to that. You'll be ok. Great photos!

Samantha said...

The picture of the bride and groom in the woods is so beautiful, I would love to frame it and hang it in my house--I don't care who the people are!

Irina Sarnetskaya said...

Aw, apply fresh, slimy aloe to that burn, buy a plant or they go for $1.50 per large leaf in a grocery fruit store. It smells funny but it works. Wear something you don't mind staining, it tends to leave brownish red marks on fabric.

Great photos!

shorty_cant_surf said...

Wow, the wedding pictures look like a fairy tale! :)

Anonymous said...

as a red head i know sunburns! aloe vera never did the trick for me- i use black tea (that's been cooled down) asap by just pouring it on then letting it dry in (never wipe it off). apple cider vinegar also works really well and if you keep in the refrigerator it's very cold which is nice as well :) hope you feel better soon :D

Em said...

Okay, first the important stuff: Take care of you! That sunburn looks wicked! (And not in a "hey, that's wicked" New England sort of way.)

And second, Yes! Yes to the beautiful bubbles! How did you get the Bubble Bokeh? It's a lovely photo.

Love Meow said...

Amazing photos. your weekend looks so much fun :).

Littlepeacetin¨Chiara Mancuso said...

Hi Katie! I also think Aloe is the best thing to do.
I have a small plant and use it whenever I burn myself while baking cookies ( :D ). You just have to slice a leaf and put the jelly thing inside on your skin,It feel soooo good to cure your skin with something natural! :)
P.S.: have you seen this artist from Paris? She's so funny :)

http://www.sandrine-estrade-boulet.com/sandrine_boulet/coup_de_vent.html

Should I call her ·street· artist? most of her pieces have been create on Post-production.

Anyway, have a great great weekend!
Be Happy! :D

I'm an aspiring photographer and I just have to say that your photographs are absolutely jaw-droopingly incredible and make me want to cry!!

Carolyn said...

Wow these are absolutely amazing!!! Is that bubble bokeh in the first photo?

And ouch, that sunburn looks ever so slightly painful...

Dennis Li said...

these are such lovely shots, katie! I love them all, as usual! you are still my number one inspiration! :) keep it up! and hope the sunburn heals fast! :)

Elizabeth said...

The wedding photograph in the trees is quite possibly the most loveliest picture I've ever seen. Certainly the most lovely wedding photograph. I'd like to buy a copy; and I don't even know them!

Dee Abd said...

I Miss you Katie!

Love your pictures as always... and hope your sunburn will go away soon! =D

<3

Vanessa said...

Ouch, that last pic made me cringe! Try to use more sunblock next time :-P The rest of the pics are awesome, though!

Sara B said...

Hi Katie,
I was reading gothamist and recognized your work in the PS1 story. :)
Reading your most recent blog made me think of the excess of potted aloe plants I have. I'd love to pass one on to you. I live in GP and could leave one on my stoop on McGuinness if you'd like. :)
I'm reachable at hotmail at consider_the_daf
Cheers!

Lívia said...

Hey Katie! I just discovered your blog and Im so in love with it! Im starting a blog of mine own, would you mind if a "stole" your banner idea of things in the air? Im not sure what Im gonna do, but i love your idea... All the credits will be given to you of course! Waiting on your response, and then maybe a visit to my blog? tks!
Livia

Manon said...

nice picture.........

Cordelia Flakk said...

I second anonymous--make a pot of tea with a ton of tea bags, run a cool bath, pour the tea in and soak for a while--you'll feel better in no time. And sunscreen girl! Put it on your favorites list. I bet you'd like the kids sunscreen that goes on a bright color then disappears and acts like regular sunscreen (Avon makes one, I think blue or purple). Your blog is always inspiring and fun to read, and brightens up my day.

Aunt LoLo said...

That sixth picture, the kiss in the woods, Takes my Breath Away.

Seriously, gorgeous!

Ms. O said...

I love the sixth picture! It's just like a fairy tale, so beautiful!
