Getting Ready | Looking for Light

  • Wedding Wednesday

much to think about when planning a wedding and I know it can be overwhelming. However, if you’re a bride and you’ve invested in really high quality photography, I bet you want the BEST pictures possible!! And while a photographer should be able to make the most out of every situation, there are some things a bride can do to help a photographer out! Today I’m just focusing on the “getting ready” portion of the day. I LOVE the moments when the dress is going on and the bridesmaids are squealing and mom starts tearing up. These are really incredible moments…. and they deserve some incredible light too! Wouldn’t you agree?

 

Floral Inspiration from Janie Medley

  • Wedding Wednesday

the quickest Wedding Wednesday post I have EVER posted in all of my blogging years! Yup! That is because I’m writing this post on Sunday night and it’s 1:25 am and I still have so much to do before vacation tomorrow! I’m pre-blogging because I want you all to have some pretties to look at while Michael and I are away at the Greenbrier… yes, the GREENBRIER. We’re so excited for our mini vacation!! So while we’re spending a few days not reading emails and not editing wedding images, enjoy this fun floral DIY shoot that I did with the fabulous Janie Medley a few weeks back! This pink, purple and red centerpiece inspiration was extremely photogenic

DIY Doilie Centerpieces Part 2

  • Wedding Wednesday

the reason this is a little LATE is because I got side tracked. ALL DAY. This happens quite often. I went downstairs to grab my purse to go to the bank and then out to get the flowers and then I saw my laundry….you should know that this laundry has been in the washing machine for over 24 hours. Gross. I had to re-wash it and after unloading the dryer and making the bed, I realized “Oh, I was supposed to go to the bank like and hour ago!!”  That really sums up my whole day. I’m trying to stay on task and this the post up ASAP because there is SO much to be done before Friday! ah!
