Sedona - Our Reel Life Chapter 26


Sedona Arizona Landscape

We just got back from a long weekend in Sedona, Arizona where we celebrated a good friends birthday, and are now back home, at work, and in the creative zone. We stayed at Enchantment Resort, which is a gorgeous property surrounded by National Forest. It was so much fun to catch up with long time friends, and make new ones as well.

We arrived back home in Connecticut around midnight on election night and watched as Donald Trump declared victory. In a twist of fate that night it turns out that we photographed the wedding of the 45th President of the United States. Who would have thought it??? One of our photographs has circled the world news over and over, and although we had every right to, we stayed out of the political fray and turned down numerous media opportunities. There is just something sacred about a persons wedding, and we are certain that our respect is a big part of why celebrities and affluent families turn to us for their private events.


As you can imagine, we have been having a blast on the Fine Art and Fashion fronts. The video pretty much says it all, but what you don't see is how much effort it takes. The good part is that it doesn't feel like work. We create the art and fashion, and it's filled with passion! Make sure to give the gift of art this holiday season from Charlee Fine Art Fashions... Thank you to all who support independent artists like us over conglomerate brands.

Friends, be kind to one another! Don't let this moment in American history sour your devotion or love of family or neighbors. By all means protest if you must, but damaging another persons property, or worse yet cause a fellow American harm, goes against the values that we are fighting for as a nation. We can all agree, disagree, or agree to disagree, but at the end of the day America is a kind nation at heart. Hold your values above the political fray because if you don't you are truly disrespecting your own self dignity. Life is too short, and America is too great of a nation. All you have to do to understand how lucky we are, regardless of who is President, is to travel and see for yourself. This should be a time to celebrate our democracy, because no matter how flawed it may be, it's the best thing we have going for us.
