a dog. This is going to sound absolutely pathetic but I envy Bokeh some days. How amazing would it be to only have to worry about chasing squirrels and burying chew toys in the couch cushions? How awesome would it be to never have any responsibility other than to be yourself and be cute?! Bokeh wakes up, snuggles, goes out to pee and then his long day of napping, playing and eating begins. What a life!!! I think it’s safe to say that when you constantly envy the pace of life that your dog enjoys, maybe it’s time for a BREAK! I just finished the last wedding of the season on Saturday, took a quick trip to California for 3 days and tomorrow
is my workshop (which I’m pumped about!!). After the workshop there is a Q&A brunch and then I head to our Fall retreat for our youth group. THEN, I get a BREAK!!!! Michael asked me a few days ago “What’s happening next Saturday?”… and after a brief moment of shock… I answered him and said “nothing!”… Nothing is happening next Saturday!!! WOOHOOOOOO!!! I vote we stay in bed way too late, eat cereal and live like our dog for the day! Nothing to do but be together and bark at squirrels! Sounds like a plan me!!!!! Needless to say, I’m looking for to next Saturday:). Have a GREAT weekend!! I’m off to a fun day with AMAZING photographers from all over the country and Canada!!!! wowsers!!
If you’re a photographer interested in COACHING SESSIONS, there are still some dates available HERE!!
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!
