Working with…

friends… some photographers hate it, some love it. I happen to be one that LOVES it. What better way to capture a couple’s personality! I met Drew a LONG time ago…. well, like 6 years ago (when you’re only 22, 6 years is a LONG time!)  Michael and Drew met at CNU and later became roommates. I was in high school and my only goal on the weekends was to try to find some way to make it down to Newport News. I loved it there. I loved CNU, I loved Michael’s friends and I loved feeling like a college student! It’s hard to be believe those days are gone. College is over now and a LARGE percentage of our college friends are tying the knot!

November…

It’s such a perfect time to be married… for MANY reasons. 1. It’s not 110 degrees, it may be a little chilly at times but I would personally rather be a little chilly than dying in the heat! 2. It’s pretty much in the “Off” season for weddings and that means wedding vendors aren’t exhausted. I know this was true for me. I took a little break in October and hadn’t shot a wedding in over a month and a 1/2! I was ready to get back in the game! Whit and Sydni’s wedding was the perfect one to start back with! They had a BEAUTIFUL ceremony so focused on the Lord and the gift that marriage is. I loved it. Sydni was gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Her dress fit her like a glove and when she walked, it made her look as if she

The Keepsake Dilema

What to save?

I’m stuck. I have so much 101010 stuff left that I don’t know what to save and what to keep. I love it all. Some of the larger wedding decor may be finding a new home soon but it’s all the smaller things that get me. I just want to keep it all…. but I live in a 1300 sq ft cape cod with NO CLOSET SPACE and no basement! So, the remains of the 42 centerpieces are scattered all over the place in my parent’s basement. I’m gradually going through some of it piece by piece. I brought a box home of some of the little things I loved and Michael gave me a look that said “and where is all of this going?”.  Ha! I have no clue! I just want to keep it because I love remembering that day!

I have only…

… been married a month, actually one month tomorrow to be exact!! Wow!…. and so I know I have a ton to learn. I’m still in the honeymoon phase where doing his laundry seems fun and loading the dishwasher together doesn’t seem like a chore. We’re still putting together our many many shelves from Ikea and trying to figure out exactly where to hang our bath towels! … Someone PLEASE tell Michael to use the towel rack… NOT the bedroom door:) Anway…I love being married and I really love being able to relate to my brides. They are planning and preparing and doing everything that I JUST finished doing and so it’s great to be able to tell them

Eggs in a Basket

Sunday mornings….

I’m ALWAYS tired on Sunday mornings. It’s like my body just knows that it is supposed to rest on Sundays and it starts shutting down. Michael and I got up for Church and I was dragging. I had just shot my first wedding since September on Saturday and my feet were hating me. After pulling myself together, I walked into the kitchen and there he was… making breakfast.. awwwwwwww. I know, he’s sweet. Not only was he making breakfast, he was making “eggs in a basket”…I have NEVER EVER had “eggs in a basket” until yesterday morning! So thanks to my wonderful husband, my breakfast horizons have been expanded and I can now say
