A Sunflower Inspired Wedding | Harbour View Wedding Photographer

  • Matt + Sara

Every bride worries about a rainy wedding day. It’s just a natural fear. But what most brides CAN’T do is just shake it off when that fear becomes a reality. It was raining on Friday for Matt and Sara’s wedding and when I arrived, I asked Sara has she was feeling.  Her response was this “I mean, I can’t change it!”. So true. So she went on with her wedding day as if the skies were blue and filled with white puffy clouds. I’m so thankful for that because great attitudes MAKE a wedding day. The bridal party, the familes, EVERYONE was excited about this day that had been anticipated for SO long and a little bit of drizzly rain wasn’t going to steal their joy!

Laundry, Groceries & Learning to be Domestic

  • Losing My Fairy...

officially finished my whirlwind of travel and weddings and mission trips and vacations.  It’s a crazy lifestyle but it’s what we’re used to it. I remember being in high school and going on a mission trip and then turning around and leaving for family vacation or cheerleading camp the NEXT DAY. So in some ways, we’ve been trained to handle the go,go,go schedule.  What I HAVEN’T been trained for is how to handle  LAUNDRY! … And the GROCERY SHOPPING and the CLEANING (Poor momma, she tried to teach me but I wasn’t interested at 16).  Thank goodness my sister has been around to help keep my life straight this summer!

 

(5 Month's with a Puppy)

  • Bokeh Is......

we’ve been puppy parents for over 5 months now. It seems like yesterday we introduced this little ball of orange fluff into our lives.  He’s full grown now (or so they say) and he’s about 12 lbs. He’s practically perfect in every way… except for the days when he decides to shred a paper towel into a billion pieces or poop under a chair because he thinks no one will find it. I’ve got news for you Bokeh Boy, anyone could smell you from a mile away! You’re small but you sure can stink up a room! But seriously, besides a few minor issues, he’s a wonderful dog. He’s almost too smart! As soon as I pick up the hairdryer he knows that I’m getting ready to leave the house and he hides!
