Talent

We have some truly talented friends and family members. We know chefs, a variety of designers, doctors, artists, lawyers, the list goes on and on. We are lucky enough to have some original art pieces in our home because of some of these talented people we love.

Josh's sister Rachel painted this beauty for our entry way. I LOVE it. I wanted something romantic, whimsical and fun. It came out absolutely perfect and works wonderfully in the space.
Don't mind the set up around it. I need to find some vases, flowers, etc, to put in place of the wedding pictures. They take away from her piece.


One of our good friends Dustin is a photographer and does amazing work. We are constantly impressed with his eye for beauty. He is great with lighting, angles, and unique settings. We have three of his photos on the walls of our office. We both love them. Dustin's work has been featured in a number of magazines, websites, and art shows. Be sure to visit his site, by clicking on his name above, to see images that do his work justice.
Again, don't mind the bad picture. The lighting this time of day was horrible and I couldn't get a picture of the trio without a terrible glare.

You did a great job framing and matting those prints. They look really nice. I am glad you guys dig them.

Rachel's painting definitely trumps my photos, though. Really, that is super cool.
