Bridal Parties Love Shadows

  • Wedding Wednesday

there is SO much to think about when you’re planning a wedding. Cake, colors, favors, vendors, invites… the list is HUGE! I retweeted someone yesterday who mentioned that there is an average of 43 businesses used to make one wedding happen. WOW. That’s incredible! So much goes into planning a celebration like this and while little details can be overwhelming, it’s worth it to talk over locations, timelines and portrait details with your photographer before hand.  Most of my clients this year are opting for a First Look and I am THRILLED.  First Looks reduce stress, allow time for TONS of portraits and relax nerves like you wouldn’t believe!

bad session for me to shoot RIGHT when I’m having puppy fever! I want a puppy so badly!! Just a little one… that’s sweet and cute and furry. I pulled up to John’s house and Colleen explained that they had a yellow lab named Bubba and that her parents would be bringing Captain along to join us for some shots as well.  Little did I know that Captain would be the CUTEST little puff ball I had ever seen in my life! He’s a teacup poodle and he’s full grown. You’re not going to believe how adorable he is!! So John and Colleen are the epitome of “dog people”.

in NYC shooting an engagement session. HOLY COW!!! I’m so excited!!…. and nervous. This city is awesome and HUGE so I have to try to capture the “NYC” feel and also shoot genuine images of my clients.  I’m not too worried because this couple is AWESOME!!! Be looking out for this session SOON! Ok, so I know “Featured” blog posts are BORING. So BORING. However, I really just do them to keep a portfolio for myself (and they make EASY, QUICK posts! haha Just being honest!!) So please stick with me and this not-so-exciting Monday post… tomorrow’s will be more interesting, I PROMISE! You’ll love it… it involves puppies!
