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!!

Videography | My Biggest Regret

There are

things about my wedding day that I wouldn’t change AT ALL…. I wouldn’t even touch them!  It was perfect… the beginning, the middle, the end.. I loved it ALL. 10.10.10 was undoubtably the best day of our life!  It’s really kinda unexplainable how awesome it was!  I remember such VIVID moments about that day. Like lining up with our bridal party before our big entrance into the reception! People were EVERYWHERE, the candy bar was already half eaten, guests were in my mom’s sunroom waving at us before we walked through the flower covered arbor and everyone was trying to take pictures of their own to capture the moment.

Engagements | So What's the Big Deal?!

It’s crazy

to think about, but only 5-7 years ago, engagement portraits were NOT what you see today!  If you’re working in the wedding industry or are a bride just getting started with your planning, I think it’s important to realize just HOW MUCH this industry has evolved in the last several years. It’s really transforming into something TOTALLY different than what it used to be! I’ve heard several people that aren’t associated with the industry say things like “What are ENGAGEMENT portraits? I’ve never even heard of that!!!”.  Well when I hear that, I think “WHAT?! Engagements?! It’s like a right of passage for the wedding day!

Daddy/Daughter First Looks

A lot of brides

are very secretive about their “Look” for the big day. No one but mom and sisters see the dress before hand and they NEVER try it on except for a fitting. Welp, this wasn’t the case for me. I came home with my dress, ran to the bathroom and threw it on as soon as I walked in the door! I showed Daddy immediately!! Now I didn’t try it on for friends but my family saw it on  before hand because I was PUMPED! I didn’t even ask daddy if he didn’t want to see it before the wedding day, I just walked into the kitchen and exclaimed “DADDY LOOK!!!! THIS IS IT!!“.  He smiled and hugged me and

The "Model Face"

Ok ladies!

It’s the night before your engagement session… you’re washing your face, applying extra moisturizer and as you take once last glance into the mirror before bed…. you practice it one more time.  Eyes wide, light smile, perfect head tilt….. you think you’ve got it but you’re unsure. What if you’re so nervous you can’t get it right? Tyra’s voice is echoing in your head “Smile with your eyes girl, smile with your eyes!”.   It’s the MODEL FACE…. the dreaded “Model Face”.  I can’t tell you how many brides email me in a PANIC because they just know that they won’t be able to do it. They’re petrified. I know this feeling all too well. It was March 2010 and I was getting ready in
