Water Bottles, Road Trips & Saying "No"

  • Good Things

Well, as you read this post…I am in somewhere in Charleston, SC.  Well, hopefully I’m in Charleston. My friend Steph and I are driving down tonight (Thursday night) and I will be shooting two sessions there this weekend. I’m really not the BEST with directions. Michael usually drives so I’m hoping we get there ok:).  I’m excited! Steph and I casually said that we were going to take a road trip back in college but it never really happened….but it’s happening now! … in like an hour! I’m soooo not ready. I haven’t even packed! I’m so thankful she’s joining me since Michael can’t make this trip.

 

The Tropical Southern Wedding | Jasmine Plantation

  • Dan + Kelsey

have heard someone say that “everything happens for a reason”.  Well, I think you can take that a step further and say that you meet everyone in your life for a reason too! I met Kelsey 4 or 5 years ago while I was visiting a friend at Tech and look how that friendship has grown!! Not only did I end up shooting Kelsey’s wedding, but I was also able to form an awesome friendship with both her and Dan. These two were married last Saturday in Providence Forge, VA on a quaint plantation. The rain held off  and allowed them to have the beautiful outdoor wedding that they dreamed about. Surrounded by their family and friends, they became best friends and companions for LIFE.

 

Family Formals & Breaking the Rules

  • Wedding Wednesday

BUSY! I feel like I’ve only been in the office for like an hour everyday and I have a pile of work just growing and growing by the hour! It’s that time of the year. College kids are leaving, school is getting ready to start, doctors appointments have to be made and I’m still shooting weddings every weekend! Whew! So this Wedding Wednesday is going to be short and sweet because I have to shower, do something with this crazy hair and run out of the in less than 30 mins!!! So! This is just a post to show brides that BREAKING THE RULES and tradition is really ok!
