Me walking into literally any situation in life ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We made it to Tulsa for my brothers wedding week after a longgggg 17 hour drive! I can’t wait spend this week with family & friends, gain a new sister, be a bridesmaid for the first time (!!) and stop in some fun places on our roadtrip back! (If you have any recommendations for Memphis and Nashville, slide into my DMs!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the week I’ve been waiting on for MONTHS! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shoutout to my friend @lunabearstudios for snapping this while we were in Arizona last week!
I’m gonna be honest. I was really nervous for Frances & Jay’s engagement session....it was raining SO hard (somehow you can’t even tell in these pictures!). Thankfully, these two create their own sunshine ✨
BIG mood because I just shot my last wedding of 2018 ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #SaturdaysAreForTheSellmayers ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Florals | @prettyposiesbynichole Makeup | @irisb33 Hair | @uniquestudiohairsalon DJ | @greatscottproductions Videographer | @ryanserio Desserts | @stonehousecakerycafe Venue | @lodgesatgettysburg Calligraphy & Signage | @thedesignwave
Did you hear that @thesentimentalfools and I are hosting NYE themed mini sessions?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is my first time ever doing mini sessions, but this idea just felt so right. New Years is a time to celebrate all that you accomplished this year, and all your plans and goals for next year. It’s a time to have fun, celebrate, reminisce, and get excited about the year ahead ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We wanted these to be for EVERYONE. For couples who want to celebrate the milestones they have been through, bloggers who are killin’ it with their content, families who encourage their kids to throw confetti and go wild, those who are celebrating their individuality and embracing themselves in their own skin, business owners who are planning big things for next year, besties who might not see each other often but cherish every moment together...the list goes on and on. Really, they’re for anyone who has anything to celebrate! And @thesentimentalfools and I want to help you celebrate! We’ll bring the disco balls, you bring yourself, and we’ll have us a party ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sign up for a slot in my bio, and more information is in my story highlight!
Sunshine vibes from my ray of sunshine✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something I’ve been thinking a lot about this week: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to think being a wedding photographer was really lonely because we sit at home and work all week by ourselves. But then I realized that every weekend we show up to weddings and make 100+ new friends. Which is honestly my favorite part. I love having to walk into a room where I know no one, and instantly having to gain their trust and be their friend. I love scanning a room in .3 seconds to figure out how to handle different groups of people (bridesmaids, groomsmen, family members, etc). This probably sounds like the scariest thing in the world to some people, but I really love being around tons of people! (Obvious extrovert over here) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to think being a wedding photographer was just about the images I take, but my favorite compliment of all time is when a groomsman or a cousin or friend of the couple says “you did such a great job tonight!”, before they’ve even seen my images. It’s just the best feeling in the world when someone was positively affected by you doing your job, before you even show them why you were hired to be there ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bestie | @brookemichellej Hair | @pschairsrtistry Makeup | @katefacebeauty T-Shirt | @daisynatives
