Welp, here

we go! This could either be a major FAIL or something new that gets incorporated every now and then into the blog! We’ll see! Video posting and recording is NOT my strongest area! As you will be able to tell, my train of thought escapes me sometimes! However, despite my mess ups and murmuring, you get to meet Bokeh and hear 3 tips about how to PREPARE THE GROOM for the engagement session!  This is actually a VERY important  thing to consider before your shoot.  The more your fiance’ is prepared, the more relaxed he will feel and the more genuine your images will be!

Tips for creating a theme through details

I talk a lot

about themes on a wedding day. We had a theme for our wedding… “Vintage Peacock”!  I STILL find random feathers around our house!!  Some brides have their theme nailed down and planned out perfectly…. and some brides are like “Hey, I’m getting married and I could care less about a theme!”. No matter what type of bride I’m working with, I have to be the one that makes the wedding day cohesive! It’s really crazy to think about but the photographer determines the way the wedding day will be remembered. AH! No pressure right?!!  The way we shoot determines the look and feel of the album and the blog post… and those are two main ways

Walmart

is not my favorite store in the world…. and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way. I’m more of a Target girl! However, every now and then I get an idea and Walmart just happens to be the place where these ideas come to life! I wanted to make a Valentines display that was BUDGET FRIENDLY and somewhat easy to make. So I thought about decorating with TISSUE PAPER. Tissue paper is cheap and as I walked into Walmart, the “Valentine’s Day” section caught my eye. I ended up leaving with 8 packages of tissue paper and I spent a total of $7.00 on this project! obviously I used a few things from home that I already owned… but when it comes to

Save the Dates

When one gets

engaged, the first thing to do is SCREAM and call everyone you love and scream some more! Then, after calling and notifying the close friends and family, you can make the “Relationship Status” change on Facebook. That part is ALMOST as exciting as the shiny new rock on your finger!! Then you start looking at the calendar and thinking of possible dates….. and then the next step is to choose a VENUE, book it…. and then book your photographer! (Well, that’s the order that my planning took place:).  After you have booked your photographer and have shot your engagement session… the time has come for SAVE THE DATES.

Finding "The Dress"

We are going

through a bit of a life change at the moment. I don’t do well with crying puppies in crates. Michael told me to put Bokeh in his crate and go up to my office and just blast the music so I can’t hear him sobbing. ugh. It’s a miserable feeling but I HAVE to get some things done, even though it’s my off season! There are some things that I could accomplish now and they would REALLY save me some time for this upcoming 2012 wedding season. The list is long but I’m working hard at it!!  Normally, on Wednesdays when I feel rushed or I have too much to do, I blog about something interesting… but EASY.
