series on my blog called “Ask Anything” and it’s basically a series of posts that answer FAQ’s from photographers! Well, today I want to open up the same opportunity for BRIDES!! I’m definitely NOT a wedding planner but after shooting 80+ weddings and planning my own, I think it’s safe to say that I’ve see a lot! I’ve seen GREAT ideas, NOT so great ideas… amazing details, awesome timelines, etc. etc. So! I want to open up this wedding wednesday to YOU!! If you’re a bride or a really anyone with a wedding related question, today is the day to ask it! Just simply leave a comment for me and I’ll respond with answers next week for Wedding Wednesday! I’m excited!!
Oh! And to make this Wedding Wednesday just a little bit better… one commenter will receive a starbucks giftcard next wednesday as well! So start thinking of your questions blog stalkers!!! I’m excited to hear from you! Just to clarify, these wedding related questions can be anything from “What’s a great time for a ceremony” to “Where did you buy all of your birdcages?!“. I’m up for anything so ask away!! I’m excited to hear from you!! Here are some topic ideas that you may have questions about! :
– FLORALS – THE PLANNING TIMELINE – THE DAY-OF TIMELINE – VENDORS – EDIQUETTE – BRIDAL PARTY ATTIRE – DETAILS AND DIY PROJECTS – FINDING A VENUE – WORKING ON A BUDGET – DRESS SHOPPING
When I’m scrolling on Instagram or looking through images after a shoot, some images just stand out and capture my attention more than others!
I don’t know if I have ever photographed a more gracious bride in the most horrendous heat! Seriously, Kelsey is a literal angel on earth. She brought her entire family to Virginia from South Dakota for this portrait session and was so incredibly kind even in the midst of 100 degree heat and humidity!
Lenses are NOT cheap, so when you invest, you want to make sure you’re choosing the best option!
If you think about a wedding day and the part that makes you cringe is having to interact and direct the groomsmen, I get it.
This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen, but the timeline didn’t quite pan out like we had planned.. The rings got lost, hair & makeup went long, storms were rolling in and there were some stressful moments!
You’re not going to believe this but this session was probably our easiest DC engagement session to date! We had glow, no crowed, a beautiful setting and the most wonderful couple!
