Wedding Week Guest – Diana of Our City Lights

May 31, 2011

Today’s guest blogger is the wonderful Diana of Our City Lights who is talking about her husband Scott and how he became her muse. (PS. Diana and Scott had the most adorable library themed wedding, which you should totally check out!)


I never understood the attraction to having a muse. I thought a little creativity and inspiration elsewhere is all a photographer needed, no muse required. That’s until I met my husband, Scott. Something about his tall and thin build makes me want to photograph the heck out of him. He’s a handsome fellow, with a sexy beard to add to the handsome manner. Here are my favorite photos my muse has inspired.

    Your husband is really cute. It helps that he’s clever and a good writer too. I remember his posts while you were in the hospital. I like my men tall, dark and nerdy as well 🙂
