up we had two springer spaniels. They were so sweet and definitely had personalities of their own. We were expecting Bokeh to have a personality but he kind of blew us out of the water with his. Sometimes it’s scary how smart and animated he is. If we’re in the middle of something and he wants to play he’ll put a toy in his mouth and toss it at us. If we don’t respond, he’ll pick up the toy and will push it against our legs. If we still don’t respond, he’ll huff at us and then walk away and flop down on the floor. Recently, he has been acting like he needs to go outside and then when we get up off the couch to let him out,
he runs back to where we were sitting and takes our place so that we can’t sit down again…. he usually does this with a toy in his mouth. I’m telling you, he’s smart! It’s the poodle in him! :)
Since he’s pretty smart, he notices when we’re about to leave IMMEDIATELY. There are certain things that really trigger his fear of being left behind. The hair dryer, keys, shoes, etc… If I touch any of these things, his tail is down and he starts to get nervous. Once we’re about to step out of the door and he doesn’t see his leash, he starts to shake. It’s really quite sad. So with all of this moving that has been going on, Bokeh has been somewhat confused! It was like we were getting ready to leave CONSTANTLY. We were packing and taking stuff to the trailer and he didn’t know what to do. FINALLY, on the last day of packing, he seemed to get the hang of what was going on. He grabbed his Mr. Polar Bear and made sure he took it to the truck before we left for the new house. :) So cute!!He literally just followed everyone around all day! Every picture I took, he was in it somewhere! We had quite a crew of movers! My family, Michael’s family, my brother’s girlfriend Madison, etc. It was so wonderful not doing this by ourselves…. we would still be moving if we didn’t have their help! He grabbed his one final toy before we left!
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!
