…that is the best word to describe Athens, Greece. The city itself was overwhelming in every sense. It was dirty, busy, crowded, congested and really nothing like I had imagined… and then we saw it…. The Acropolis. It sits at the top of a hill overlooking the modern day city of Athens as if to say “I was here first!”. It’s crazy to walk around the ruins of Ancient Greece and think about just how long those stones and columns have been standing! When you stand at the tipy top of the Acropolis you can see all the way to the Aegean Sea and it’s beyond impressive. Michael and I have always wanted to see Ancient Greece and now that we
have seen the Acropolis we feel as if we can check that off our bucket list! While modern Athens isn’t our favorite place in the world… the ruins of the ancient greek city were amazing to walk through and take pictures of…. many many pictures. There were several times that Michael turned around I wasn’t behind him….normally because I had found a stone or a column or an olive branch that was “blog worthy”. ha! We loved our time in Greece but the highlight of the trip was actually in TURKEY! Thoses pictures are coming tomorrow!
That’s right! Another blog post, back to back….. the BLOGGER IS BACK! I’ll be honest…. not blogging much the past two weeks has been a great break…. but I’m ready to start again! I have a new routine, a newly painted studio and a new husband! Life is awesome! However….. I do not have a new desk….that is a VERY important necessity. I’m currently typing on the floor, hunched over my keyboard like an 88 year old woman! The desk is coming this weekend! Thank you Pottery Barn!!!!!!
Did you knowwww…. that the reason Greeks started using so much olive oil in their cooking was because it is too rocky and mountainous to have cattle, thus making it hard to produce butter. So the greeks cook with olive oil instead! Ya learn something new everyday!:)
You’re NOT going to believe this!!!!! But we ran into a friend… in downtown ATHENS GREECE!!!!!! Are you kidding me?! What are the chances?! Laura is a friend of mine and the sister of one of Michael and my close college friends! We literally passed each other on the street and were SHOCKED! How awesome is that?!
It still feels surreal to tell people about what we do for a living. We photograph weddings and we teach other people how to photograph weddings. It’s quite literally a dream job for a creative like myself who loves people! Every month when we do these Student Spotlights, I’m reminded all over again how much of a privilege it is to be a part of these photographer’s lives and play a small role in their stories.
This is Rhett’s third month blog post and I’m actually impressed that it’s only 9 days late!! I’m sure I’ll fall behind this year but as of right now, I’m doing ok and I’m actually thankful for the monthly-post commitment to keep me on top of editing our family pics each month!! While people say “the days are long but the years are short”…. I would say EVERYTHING feels short right now!
If you’re a photographer that despises Off-Camera-Flash (OCF), this blog post is for you! Ugh. I feel you. I used to hate it too… and it honestly still isn’t my favorite but it’s necessary in order to rise in your professionalism on wedding days after dark!! Off camera flash seems intimidating when you’re trying it for the first time.
This is such a fun post for me to share because it’s what I consider my “hobby”! Sure, it’s still photo-related so maybe it’s not a true hobby for me since my career is consumed in the photography world… but it is most definitely what I love to do for fun!
This is the biggest complaint we’re hearing about the R6!! Photographers who are moving from the CANON MARK III camera body and switching to the new Canon R6 camera body are lost when it comes to perfecting their edits to the style they are used to.
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
