a happy post for me! As a bride, I worked so hard at planning our wedding. Hours of sitting on the basement floor, sorting through moss and peacock balls and never ending phone calls with vendors left me exhausted. However, as I look back on my wedding day, all I remember was that it was perfect. I laughed and cried and squealed with my hands in the air… A LOT. They say that your wedding day is one of the best days of your life and I’m happy to say that that was so true for us. We LOVED our wedding and I wish I could have shared that day with the WORLD! The joy and happiness that filled that small country church was
indescribable and was so much more than I could have ever hoped for! So now that it’s been 9 months since the wedding, I have started to forget just a little bit of that excitement. Sure, I still pull out our wedding album for ANYONE that walks through our front door (obnoxious? Yes.) but I haven’t taken the time to sit back and really think about that day for a while. Well, that all changed yesterday when I came home to find my copies of the The Knot VA, MD, DC on my doorstep. I tore open the package and sat in my living room, flipping through the pages to find our wedding!! There it was, page 50-53. All of my details and hard work, displayed for future brides to gain idas and inspiration! Michael and I are THRILLED to be featured and we’re so thankful for everyone who made our day possible. One very important couple to thank would be Jasmine and JD. I’ve said it before but they added so much to our wedding day. Choosing a photographer is not about just finding someone who takes “pretty pictures”… it’s about finding a friend and a person who you TRUST completely. We found that in Jasmine and JD. We’re so thankful for our wedding images and I’m excited to share some of them with the wedding world! Also, a huge thanks to all the fabulous ladies at The Knot!!!
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!
