Wedding Wednesday

  • Floral Inspiration from Janie Medley

the quickest Wedding Wednesday post I have EVER posted in all of my blogging years! Yup! That is because I’m writing this post on Sunday night and it’s 1:25 am and I still have so much to do before vacation tomorrow! I’m pre-blogging because I want you all to have some pretties to look at while Michael and I are away at the Greenbrier… yes, the GREENBRIER. We’re so excited for our mini vacation!! So while we’re spending a few days not reading emails and not editing wedding images, enjoy this fun floral DIY shoot that I did with the fabulous Janie Medley a few weeks back! This pink, purple and red centerpiece inspiration was extremely photogenic

Meet Laura

  • Richmond Portrait Photographer

and let me just say this….Laura is one of the most photogenic seniors I’ve EVER shot.  And I’m not just saying that. She’s beautiful and I can’t tell you how easy this session was for me. Modeling is just natural for her! Lord why didn’t I get that ability?!! Laura is one of our youth group girls and I even though I’m taking a break from work outside of weddings, I am still doing some senior portraits for the girls from church. Doing a session with a senior girl is so much fun for me.  I just get to walk around a cool location and get to know these girls in a totally different way. It’s awesome. I absolutely loved my time with Laura in Carytown last week.

 

Mike + Sarah | Everyday

  • Charleston South Carolina Photographer

week/weekend! Between the earthquake that shook all of virginia and most of the northern east coast and Hurricane Irene making her presence known this weekend, I think mother nature should be exhausted at this point! I mean really!! A lot has been happening over here on the east coast! I shot a wedding this past Friday and I can’t tell you how many times I said a little “Thank you JESUS this wasn’t a Saturday wedding” prayer! We got lucky, so lucky. Shooting a Friday wedding was a lot of fun because I felt like a normal human being and had the whole Saturday OFF! Can you believe it?! I didn’t WORK on a WEEKEND!!
