1 down, 29 to go!

Here we are...another Monday. I never understand why I ALWAYS feel tired on a Monday? No matter how much sleep I get!? Maybe I need to learn to like black coffee... (gross).

Rewind to the beginning of the weekend. I couldn't believe how nervous I was Friday evening. Just THINKING about shooting the wedding the next day was making my stomach hurt. It had been about 4 FULL months since we'd shot an actual wedding and I was beginning to think I'd forgotten everything. Little did I know, picking my camera back up to start this 2015 wedding season would be so rewarding.

Caleb and I had the whole morning to do whatever we wanted, and didn't have to be Downtown until 1:30! It truly couldn't have been a better day. I hadn't seen the bride and groom since their consultation over a YEAR ago, so I was excited to squeeze the bride and get some fun pictures by the river. Little did we know the river would be FLOODING! They almost called an evacuation of a nearby city due to the insanely high waters. There's a walkway we planned to take pictures on prior to the ceremony, which was right by the river...yeah, no walk way to be seen. Totally covered in water!! It was crazy. BUT, we made it work and got some amazing pictures... and had fun doing it!

Sometimes I get overwhelmed thinking about how crazy our lives are about to get when weddings really pick up. How in the world are we going to manage 30 weddings, two full time jobs, church volunteering, and a marriage? Oh and you know, maintaining friendships...etc?!?! Then Caleb sweetly reminds me that we are going to take it one day at a time, get the HECK out of debt this year, and enjoy each wedding as they come. He also considers them like "date nights", and he's totally right. Free dinner, free favors, and unlimited dancing on the dance floor.

I am so blessed. I just have to remember that!
Congrats to the newlyweds!

I hope you had a fun weekend, too!

  2. The picture looks amazing! I'm sure you can handle it all - like your husband said, nothing better than to take things one day at a time :) And Mondays are just a big no. I'm lucky I have most Mondays off, because even when I don't work I feel sluggish.

  3. Good looking couple who had a great photographer! ;) So question, because you see many shots of people in streets, etc, do you guys have them run into the middle of the street in between cars then scoot out of the way once you have your shot or is it just hit or miss?

  8. Gorgeous picture! I can't believe you have 30 weddings to shoot this year! That sounds so overwhelming, but your man is right - one step at a time and I bet you'll love every bit of it! :)

  9. As crazy as it is to have 30 weddings I bet a few years ago if someone told you you'd be shooting 30 weddings in one year you would have thought they were crazy!! Keep living/chasing your dream!!! :)

  12. I think it's an unwritten rule some where that we're supposed to be tired on Mondays and apparently we don't want to break that rule. That is an amazing picture. You are very talented my dear!
