Wedding Wednesday

  • Wedding Hairpieces

I love them! When I was little, I used to wear headbands and hair clips with HUGE cloth flowers on the side of them. In fact, there are several pictures lining our stairs of me and my sister wearing these large headbands.  We used to have “Sister” portraits done. Ya know,… matching dresses, matching shoes and matching HEADBANDS! The works! I used to think those hairpieces were so funny looking  but now that they are coming back in style…I’m starting to have a better opinion about them, especially when it comes to bridal hairpieces!

"Editor's Pick"!

  • Wedding Channel Bridal Blog Awards

Momma and I went to the gym tonight even though we didn’t want to… at all.  We were so proud of ourselves that we went to Applebee’s afterwards and had their amazing honey barbeque boneless wings! We’re bad…but they were so, so good! Before we left the gym, I was checking my emails and I received one from Erin at the Wedding Channel. Not really paying attention, I opened it, scanned over it and then put my phone down. It was only a matter of seconds before I realized what it said and I quickly re-read it for real this time!! The Wedding Channel announced today that I was their “Editor’s Pick” for the Wedding Photography Category of their Bridal Blog Awards!…

Jason + Jennifer Part II

  • Montego Bay, Jamaica Destination Wedding Photographer

…the clouds would roll in, the skies became dark and the nightly tropical thunderstorm would come rolling through. It made me a little nervous. Of course, as always, Saturday came and the skies were crystal clear. I should have known that the wedding day would be perfect.  After the reception and portraits, Jason and Jen MADE MY WHOLE WEEK and opted to get in the water! In Jamaica! With awesome light! I was just beside myself!! Other couples that were married that same day were taking portraits on the dock right beside us and I immediately became the most prideful photographer ever. Yea, my clients are IN THE WATER! They’re pretty much the coolest newlyweds at the whole resort!!
