Before the whirlwind begins...

Starting tonight, I'm going to be using my camera for 5 days straight. Which means I'll be in front of my computer the next two to three weeks editing my life away. Don't get me wrong, I love doing it, I'm excited... but I'm already a little sleepy thinking about it.

Tonight is Marie's maternity/family shoot, tomorrow's another family shoot, Friday is an out of town wedding, Saturday is a Cincinnati wedding, and Sunday morning is three back to back family-engagement-engagement shoots. PHEW! That's a lot. But I really am excited! I was just thinking about how lucky I am. I prayed for so long to have what I have, and now that I have it? I'm trying not to complain or stress about things or worry about how in the world I'll have time to edit all of the stunning pictures...and just enjoy it. After all, I get to shoot with my cute husband all day.

But I will tell ya, its easy to be negative towards myself. I've often wondered if I'm even cut out to document someone's BIGGEST day of their life... and compare my photos to photographers who've been in the game far longer than I... and then God sends you a little sign to tell you that you're doing far more than you even know.

This was a recent review posted about Caleb and I, and I read it at a moment I desperately needed to hear it.
It was a simple reminder that I'm not only shooting a wedding, or a family, etc...but I'm capturing memories as they happen, for people who will look at these photos for years to come, and for newlyweds who will cover their living room walls with these images. So friends, just send me some good vibes over these next few days and I hope I make it through ;)

Happy Wednesday!!

  9. You guys, as always, will knock their socks off. That's what I loved about our photographer, he was a part of us. Not just there for the certain shots but captured the essence of it all :)

  10. I personally think the biggest piece of your wedding, after your vows are course, is the photos that document your day. From the looks of it, you do a heck of a job. Love your work.
