Happy Friday, everyone! What a wedding season it has been so far! I’m in the middle of a three week “break” right now. That really means I get to play catch up and my schedule is just as full as it is when I’m photographing weddings every weekend. Although I have a my Saturdays off right now, I’m spending my work week tying up loose ends from the past few weddings – downloading, editing, exporting, and delivering photos, designing albums, responding to emails for future clients, running errands to the post office and bank, and keeping up with inquiries and bookings for next year! PHEW! So, since it’s been a while since I’ve posted a personal post on the blog, here is a little update of what’s been going on:
Shoots. I’ve been so excited to have shot two different shoots with some talented people in the wedding industry recently. Janie from The Bride’s Cafe and Amelia, a wedding planner and stylist. Here are some sneaks for you!
Graceland. What about you – do you watch? I mean, how many plot lines can they POSSIBLY keep up with? This show has kept me occupied until Revenge comes back on…
Innsbrook After Hours. I have to give a big thank you to my dad for getting Chad and I season tickets to these shows. This week, we saw Blackberry Smoke and Scotty McCreery. A few weeks ago we saw Cole Swindell, a few weeks before that The Wailers… It’s been another season of music that is such a fun weekly date night for the two us.
Home Improvements. This summer, despite shooting TON of weddings, we’re trying to move forward with our home. Our goal is to get rid of any existing wallpaper as soon as possible. And then redo the guest bathroom as cheap as possible. And then paint the living room. And then make that said living room, livable. Anyway, we’re having fun with it… I can’t wait to share those photos! I will say that this color from Sherwin Williams is involved:
OBX. After shooting a wedding down in the Outer Banks in May, I told Chad at the HAD to go for vacation. So, in the coming weeks, we’ll be headed down there for a short getaway before my fall wedding season really amps up! Anyone need their portraits at the beach?
ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I think I was more afraid to speak on camera than to have cold water poured on my head. But I have a relative who passed away from Lou Gehrig’s and wanted to join others in bringing awareness. Thanks to my brother in law who nominated me. Watch it here.
