The First Look

Some of you may

be thinking “Hasn’t she already blogged about this topic?!”… And the answer to that question would be “Yes”.  I have confessed my deep love for “First Looks” numerous times on the blog and I tend to point them out in every blog post. There is a reason for this. They’re AWESOME.  However, not everyone is aware of how awesome they are because they get caught up in how “un-traditional” it is and they immediately write it off.  I can talk about those brides because I almost was one of those brides. I wanted a REACTION….I wanted Michael to be so surprised and overcome with joy when I walked down the aisle that

Tracking Down the Ties

When I was

planning MY wedding… I ran into a common problem! I would see ideas on wedding blogs (thank goodness I wasn’t addicted to Pinterest at the time!) and I would want to replicate those ideas for my wedding but I didn’t know HOW! Where do brides find adorable mix-matchy dresses? Where do they find custom signs and handmade jewlery? And WHERE in the WORLD did they find those awesome TIES and BOWTIES?!  I had a really bad tie dilema! It was quite frustrating. I bought several ties from Etsy that were just blah (however you CAN find amazing wedding stuff on there!!!)… and then I searched every department

There are

a lot of things that run through a bride’s mind on her wedding day. Is everyone where they need to be? Is the cake going to show up? Is my hair ok? Are we on schedule?! Did I forget something?! It’s a lot of stress. The LAST thing she needs to be worrying about is “WHERE ARE WE GOING TO TAKE PICTURES?!!”. So this post helps give a little insight about what the role of a photographer should be when prepping for portraits on the wedding day.  If you’re a bride, take a deep breath because your job just got a lot easier!!  If you’re a photographer, this is just a reminder of how we can and SHOULD serve our clients on their wedding day!

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.
