We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE doing bridal sessions. Since we both are from the north where bridals are almost non-existent we become a little giddy leading up to these sessions. Charity was so easy to photograph and a blast to be around. She exudes southern elegance and she totally rocked out her Alfred Angelo wedding gown!
So we took a spur of the moment shopping trip to the Galleria Mall in Dallas on Wednesday. As we were walking around some of the stores Jeremy tells me he wants to try a hat like Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) from White Collar…we had so much looking through all the fedora’s in the mall and well…I couldn’t resist buying one either. Both of our fedoras are from Forever 21. We really wish we could have found a baby fedora for Stella, but isn’t her little baby scarf from Zara just adorable!
Rita and Mark had a lovely wedding this past weekend at the Alexander Mansion. Surronded by their closest friends and family they tied the knot at their intimate wedding. Rita and Mark met several years ago and they will tell you that they have come to the point in their lives where they knew what they wanted, and in the past few years they realized that what they wanted was each other.
Rita and Mark, Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day. We are so glad we were able to meet you both. We hope that you have a wonderful time at the Lake with each other!
I think this is one of the easiest traps to fall into when you are just starting out in the crazy world of photography. It is so easy as a photographer to compare everything about your work to other “Rockstar” photographers. It is easy to analyze the technicality of every photo, and to be a little bit jealous when you see the amazing work of a friend. Somehow as creatives we think that others were just born with it and we had to work for it. In reality, everyone has to work. Yes, some may have to work a little harder, but no one picks up a camera and has perfect exposure their first time in manual, or masters seeing the light the first time they try. Others may have a better website than you, better gear or a fancier business card, but that doesn’t mean you should throw in the towel. Read, learn and practice and don’t compare everyone’s highlight gallery’s to your behind the scenes Sooc shots. Refine your skills, work with what you have, and only compare yourself to who you used to be.
I saw this quote on Pinterest a few weeks ago and I just wished someone had told me this when I started.
If you have been over to our house or gone on vacation with us, you know that we love to play games. More specifically, card games. Actually, we just LOVE rook! The deck of cards now sits on our kitchen table and we have a “never-ending” score tab running. Jeremy is winning. We actually have a contest running…if Jeremy is in the lead when we “quit” then I have to play Monopoly with him, and if I am in the lead, then Jeremy buys me a one-hour massage! haha.
What’s your favorite family game or card game? Leave a comment ;)
