Rita and Mark | Garland Wedding Photographers

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!

For Photographers | Comparison

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.

This is so true, Kristin! Thanks for the reminder. :)

SO true! And thanks! I think it’s extra-hard when you’re also being compared by others. (My sister once oh-so-kindly said, “Kat [our oldest sister] really is a lot better at finding the right angles and things.” Thanks, sis. Thanks.) But then you get a really great shot – like one that someone comments on and says, “Wow, if this wasn’t taken by a professional, it sure looks like it was,” (as someone commented on one of my pictures yesterday) and think, “Hey, I’m getting somewhere!” :D

Katrina Kent

That is a good quote :)

Cat Neumayr

Such an important message! I wish that someone had told us this when we started our business! Do your own thing and be happy! :) Good one, Jeremy and Kristin!

Rook – Our Favorite Card Game

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 ;)

Anastasia + Alex | Plano Engagement Photographers

We had such a fun time with Anastasia and Alex at their engagement session at the gorgeous Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. They both looked amazing in front of the camera, and I just love Anastasia’s smile.

We are so excited for their wedding in November, Anastasia has told me about her vision for the  wedding day and it is amazing…I can’t wait to see it all come together and to capture their gorgeous day.
