Austin + Kristy | Engaged

A Colorful Engagement Shoot in Radford, VA

The blog

is BY far the greatest asset of my business…. and this couple is the perfect example why.  Because I’ve been blogging since 3 months after I STARTED this business… I have gained a few followers who have been with me for the long haul. There are some days when I get emails that read something like “I’ve been following your blog for 3 years and now it’s MY TURN! I’M ENGAGED!”…. these are my FAVORITE emails….EVER. Why? Because these are brides that GET me… they know my business, they know my style and they love it.  Kristy is one of those girls.  She’s been following the blog for a while and it just so happens that

The Shoe Dilemma

Here’s the

truth…. no one wants to admit it but everyone knows it…. sometimes beautiful heels just HURT. It’s unfortunate. You could be sporting a $600 pair of Jimmy Choo’s or some pumps from Payless and if you stand in them too long, you’re going to be in pain. Now, I have come to realize that the higher the price tag, the better the fit.  I have ONE pair of real heels and they are definitely more comfortable than my cheapo pairs!! So what does this mean for a bride? Are you supposed to just suck it up and be miserable? …. Or are there OTHER options out there? Great news! … Brides are doing WHATEVER they want these days!!

May 2012

The good news

is that I actually accomplished a lot this past month! Instead of reading my monthly “goals” and cringing, I found myself saying “Oh, I actually DID that!”. It’s amazing how great it feels to officially mark something off the to-do list permanently!  Albums are being ordered and approved, I drank more water, I made a master grocery shopping list and we have stuck to the new budget pretty well. Now, there were somethings on my goals from last month that contradicted each other! Like: “Buy new teal vases for the kitchen” and “Stick to the budget”.  I’m really surprised no one called me out on that one!
