Of course I am sitting down to write my January “new year, new me” blog post on the 19th of January. I try so hard to adult and run a business and mother three busy children in an organized manner and well.. lets just say that it is a good thing I am talented because my amateur juggling skills (aka life management) would surely have buried me if I weren’t.
As much as I want to begin the year with the wedding I shot last week, I cannot let 2017 begin without shedding some light on where 2016 ended and THAT was with stacks on stacks on stacks of gorgeous weddings surrounding a very busy holiday season. I am going to dedicate myself to posting some of these and my work more regularly this year. Boom. There it is.
You guys remember Francie and Kerby, right? How could you not? Well, they were married on a Sunday at one of my favorite venues (The Chimney's). When planning for this wedding, Francie didn’t take into account that daylight savings would occur and their start time would ultimately mean DARK. This didn’t stop them, or me from capturing some stellar ceremony shots thanks to my favorite lens (50 1.2) and some creative lighting giving me just enough to capture Kerby’s tears and Francie’s infectious smile. We had an impromptu first look, and I must say I am so thankful for her nerves and those first few moments we shared alone.
The outpouring of love and fellowship at this union was huge, y’all. I could post 50 images and still not feel like I did it justice. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites of the joining of these two families and all of the style that surrounded it.
And as always, a huge thank you to the couple for trusting me, for sharing their families with me (especially the Grandmothers of both the bride and the groom who were two of the most loving women I have ever met) and for their kind words and gracious hearts.
