In 9 days, I will be getting married! Think of this post as an out of office notice because for the next 2 weeks I will be taking a little vacation to focus on my wedding. No fret, I will be back, but I will be back as Mrs. Parrott. That’s right, I will be Leslie Parrott as of May 18th. Until then, please enjoy this fun photo of my fiancé and me.
“Some roads aren’t meant to be traveled alone”
In 2004 I traveled to Nara, Japan. There are eight temples, shrines and ruins in Nara that collectively form “Historic Monuments of Ancient Nara”, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tōdai-ji is a Buddhist temple complex which includes the Great Buddha Hall. The Great Buddha Hall has been rebuilt twice after fire and houses the world’s largest bronze statue of the Buddha Vairocana at 52ft high. Tame deer roam through the town, especially in Nara Park. Snack vendors sell “shika sembei” (deer biscuits) to visitors so they can feed the deer. The sika deer are regarded as messengers of the gods in the Shinto religion, protecting the city and the country. To the left is a photo of me feeding the deer.
I love the painterly feel of this photo. This was taken with my old Fuji Finepix Pro (my first digital camera) back in 2004 while visiting Nara, Japan. I’ll have more from Nara in the coming week but this one just stood out… For now, Leslie

This is Courtney and Dave the day after their wedding. They are blissfully husband and wife and had a great time during their photo shoot at the polo fields. They had not a care in world and Courtney didn’t worry about getting her dress dirty. After the shoot, I got to wave them off on their honeymoon. A day after photo shoot is such a great idea for the couple who wants editorial style photos that are more suited to their personality. This photo shoot takes the weight off trying to get those photos on the wedding day. The wedding day can be a lot of running around and the day after shoot is a moment to breathe and celebrate just the two of you as newlyweds.
