wild ideas sometimes. Luckily Michael trusts my crazy ideas and he’s sweet enough to help me make these ideas come life! I said a LONG time ago that I wanted to paint thick, horizontal stripes down the foyer of the new house. I have been envisioning this for such a long time but I knew that I would have to be patient! This was going to be a DIY project for us and it wasn’t going to be easy. Michael and I hosted two cookouts last weekend and that was the perfect motivation to get this project done! Michael bought the paint, the laser level and the tape and he went to town.
I tried helping with the taping process but he was just better at it so I let it become his baby. I came up with the idea, he made it happen. That seems to be a theme in our life! So after one night, one day and one trip to ikea, our foyer had a massive makeover! Enjoy the before and afters!And so it begins! Doesn’t he look thrilled?!! The laser level saved us! And the final product!!!! So we used hints of teal and mint in the foyer because when you walk in, you see the foyer and then immediately see my teal office and it all flows nicely! My FAVORITE view of the new foyer display is from my desk!! One of my favorite wedding pics!
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!
