I have actually had a day or two of relaxing! When I say relaxing, I mean that I didn’t have any sessions that HAD to be edited and blogged, I didn’t have a paper due within 24 hours and I haven’t had a million meetings to attend! However, I have been chugging away at my to-do lists. I have “to-do’s” that get pushed back and pushed back and pushed back because they just aren’t important enough to make the “immediate” list. One of these “to-do’s” was making new headers for the blog! I found myself playing around with them in Photoshop this morning and I was having so much fun that I totally skipped my Comm Persuasion class! haha Oh, I shouldn’t have admitted that to the Internet because my mother checks the blog on a daily basis!!
Anyway, after making a few headers and starting to design a sample Coffee Table Album I realized just how much I LOVE THIS JOB! And then I realized that this really isn’t a “job” at all! I’m doing what I love! It’s so much fun for me to take my images and design an album or re-design parts of my website! I’m in the process of ordering new packaging materials and I’m convinced that if I had a never-ending supply of money, I would buy every teal ribbon known to man! I love that stuff. I love this “job”! Below is a perfect example of why this isn’t a “job” to me at all. Yes, there is a TON of time and energy involved and I do have moments of stress and frustration. However, I get paid to take pictures of people on one of the happiest days of their lives and I get to celebrate with them! These pics were taken at Ryan and Michelle’s reception by their INSANE DJ! He was probably the most energetic and involved DJ I’ve seen yet! I usually dance to the Cupid Shuffle at least once during the reception and he decided that I should have a picture of it! haha
Again, this is a perfect visual of why I love what I do! Be sure to check out my Shootsac! I use that thing ALL THE TIME and I LOVE IT!
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
