The Wedding

25 July 2014

Wondering where I've been? too. It has been a friggin NUTHOUSE up in herrrr.

Between the Bug....and a new(BETTER..super-duper-awesome-can't-believe-im-so-lucky BETTER)job (YEP) and planning a wedding we have had like zero free time.

Yep...we are planning the WEDDING.

Please excuse me while I vomit.

We have our venue.

The building

The Ceremony Spot

The Reception Area

And we have our date.

September 20, 2015.

Holy Crap.

My Colors are Purple, White, and Grey and will be incorporated into just about everything.

These our colors and roughly the look of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. We're going for the long deep purple chiffon look for the bridesmaids. And the grey just-the-vest and purple tie look for fiancé and the groomsmen (which he is TOTALLY in love with)

Our wedding "theme" or "feel"...if you romantic or classic or something along those lines.

I want TONS of candlelight and lanterns will be our centerpieces.

My flowers will be white hydrangeas and peonies

And for the fun little touches I'll have a candy buffet/bar as a favor (which I am OBSESSED with)

And chalkboard signage/details throughout

So clearly I know the look I'm going for. And while this planning process may kill me...I'm SO excited to begin planning.

I'll be sure to keep everyone updated as we go!

Maternity Shoot with Brittany and Bailey

28 June 2014

Some shots from my most recent maternity shoot that I am absolutely OBSESSED with.

Raeanne & Colin Save the Dates

07 May 2014

Here's a sneak peek of my shoot from last night with my favorite couple. Oh, and did I mention their ADORABLE new puppy. Meet, Mater :)

This shoot was so important to me on so many different levels. Not only are Raeanne and Colin returning clients (check out our previous shoot here) but since then Rae has asked me to do her wedding. Yep. My first wedding. I was in absolute hysterics when she asked. It's so awesome to have so many amazing people support me and help me as I grow my photography business. And speaking of growing, this is the other reason this shoot was so important to me was it was the first shoot I shot entirely in manual mode.

This is HUGE for me.

I finally pushed myself out of my comfort zone and ventured into the manual mode wilderness.

This was the first big step in my photography career.

Teaching myself how to use my camera and most importantly understand it was vital to me and to my future in photography.

I still have a long way to go, the end product is still not close to where I'd like to see it, but it's getting there.

I have a lot of learning, experience, and classes I'm sure before I see a light at the end of the tunnel but for now, this is a HUGE accomplishment and I can't wait to see where it goes from here :)
