"WE DID IT!"

I hadn't mentioned it on the blog, but I was a nervous nilly all week long. Caleb and I were scheduled to shoot our first wedding as "Innovatory Photography" on Saturday. Why was I nervous? I'd shot plenty of weddings on my own, or with my husband...but this was the first one shooting under someone else's name. Remember this post? Where I announced my dreams had come true and our wedding photographers asked us to join their team??

I asked all my closest friends to say a quick prayer for us, and once the day got started, I have no idea why I was so nervous. It was so much fun, and we had the best time ever. We recently bought new equipment, and was so proud of the shots we took all day.

We laughed, we danced, we ate cake cubes...yeah, they were incredible.
We took our new Mac to back up the pictures day of, and also make a fun slideshow for the bride and groom...so we thought, lets snag a shot of us at our first "official" wedding. :)

I haven't talked much about it, but I seriously love being a part of this business. Caleb and I have already booked about 12 weddings with Innovatory for this year, and I can't even believe that! We even have two weekends with TWO weddings. I'm terrified that I'll get no sleep, but I'm so excited!

I've never written this, or even said it out loud, but its always been my dream to have my photography published in a magazine. Like, to see my work, on display? Ugh, my heart would just swell. I'm also excited to say that we, as Innovatory Photography, are now advertising on The Knot's website. I'm excited to see what kind of doors this opens for us.

Man, I just love love.
Here is an adorable shot that Caleb took from this weekends wedding. Enjoy :)

I was also a happy camper to say that Joe (principal photog of Innovatory) came to shadow us for maybe two hours, and loved what he saw in us.


Have a happy Monday!
