Happy Friday

  • His Face

gone ALL week. Tuesday I shot a bridal session and then drove to Virginia Tech to visit my sis before she graduates and enters the REAL world. (Seriously, watching 3 movies a day and hanging out with your best friends unfortunately isn’t the real  world)  But it’s fun to act like I’m still in college every now and then. After the VT trip, I met Michael for a conference and we’re in the mountains until tomorrow.  Normally people would be away from home and miss their bed, or their routine…… but I miss this furry little face.  After 3 days away from him I forget that he chewed a hole in the carpet last week, I forget that unfortunately he isn’t 100% potty trained

And why I may have a new favorite lens!

  • The Mark III Review

a had received a massive box from Jcrew or something! I was estatic! When my MarkIII arrived I could have hugged the UPS man but I refrained! I was excited but also somewhat nervous. Ya know when you take friends to a movie that you LOVED and you’re just HOPING they think it lives up to the rave review you given it? That’s what I felt like with this camera. I have talked it up, I’ve shared my excited with the internet AND my whole family… so now was the moment of truth…. was it amazing and was it a worthwhile investment?  Well, the overall answer to this questions issss… dun, dun, dun…… YES! And I’ll explain why in this post!

Videography | My Biggest Regret

  • Wedding Wednesday

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.
