Krystal & Greg’s Relaxed Engagement Party Image by Elle Green 

 Champagne anyone? Actually  – cake anyone? I love that some images have the ability to capture and convey taste and smell, and I certainly could go some banana cake with a passionfruit cheesecake frosting right about now. This is the power of fantastic photography! It’s been a busy week, with an even busier season ahead. The last leg of Winter is upon us, and I’m counting the days for sun and outdoors activities! Anyone with me!?
