I absolutely love weddings. Shooting them, being in them, going to them....I just enjoy them so much! But you know what I hate. Saying goodbye! It's so sad at the end of the wedding day when I have to say goodbye to my brides and their grooms...I've gone through a long journey of planning, photographing and making sure every detail is documented. I hate to see them go. Does anyone else have a problem with this?! Or is it just me? Lol
As a female photographer, it's always a little intimidating to walk into the bridal suite. Here you are... this stranger, walking into a room with a bride whom you've already connected with...and here are all of her closest friends and family members!!! What if they don't like you? What if they're territorial?! It's a fear I had at the very beginning of my wedding photography career. But I have been so blessed to have some of the most wonderful brides that have some of the sweetest, most beautiful and kind hearted women surrounding them on their wedding day!!! These girls have all embraced me as one of their own :)
I hope everyone had a great Father's Day! We were able to get all the visiting done in the hours immediately following church, so once we were home we were lazy!!!! That's not been the case today. I've been super productive on this rainy Monday! What have you done that's productive today?
Katie and Bryan had an absolutely beautiful wedding day. Everything from the venue, the flowers, the colors they chose and even their bridal party!!! I love when all of it just comes together for a perfect day! I cannot wait to deliver Katie's heirloom wedding album in the next few days!!!!
As a creative, I feel like I am always learning. New angles, new equipment, new techniques, etc. As a photographer...I know I've grown. As a business owner I've had to wear a lot of hats. But I've learned so many new things along the way out of necessity!!! What's a weird skill you've recently learned or a new hat you've recently started wearing??
Three of my favorite things: 1) jewelry 2) gold 3) sparkle!!! Just looking at this image gives me the happies 😍😍😍
