I have to admit it, it’s hasn’t been 24hours yet and I miss my Shoogy!⠀ 🙃⠀ She’s the best ever, makes me laugh constantly, and totally thinks she’s a lap dog (she’s over 70lbs btw..!!) She welcome every guest with all the excitement and energy she has in her, as you probably know if you’ve been over. 😏 but how can you not love this adorable goofball?!⠀ 💕⠀
Congrats to Class of 2019!! YOU did it! 🎉🎈⠀⠀ It’s been such a joy watching all my senior girls grow to beautiful young ladies! I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for you because I know that life has big plans in store for you.⠀ 💕⠀ And congrats all all the other high school and college graduates! You’re on your way to achieving all the amazing things! ✨
My favorite dancing bride!⠀ 😍⠀ Alissa and I grew up dancing together in Missoula (let’s be real, she was SOOOO much better than me and I always looked up to her), and she was one of those triple threats in high school. She performed all over town and was the star of many MCT shows and a dance legend to everyone. So, naturally, when she asked me to photograph her wedding, I’m pretty sure I died for a second. It was like my favorite person in high school actually wanted me to be their understudy! Haha!⠀ 💕⠀ AND, When you’ve got a bride and groom that sing and dance on stage for a living, you know that posing was definitely not an issue!⠀ 😉
Let's take a quick sec and talk about what went on in the BTS of this photo. What you didn't know was that it was raining and I had about 5 helpers standing by with umbrellas and counted out 1,2,3, pull em so that they could instantly whip the umbrellas out of sight so I could capture a perfect Instagrammable moment. Thinking back on it now, the whole situation was hilarious. We're dodging the rain while having bridesmaids “effortlessly” and “candidly” laugh at each other.⠀ ☔️⠀ I mean, I'm in love with how the pic turned out, aren't you?! But, the back story is even better, eh?!
I love this! Don’t you agree?! 😏 As I photograph weddings, engagements, and couples all summer long and see all the amazing relationships around me, I often play the compare game and wonder why my relationship isn't like A, B, or C. Do you do this sometimes?! Instead of putting all that poo-poo energy into my judgment on societal relationship goals, I instead need to stop and realize that loving myself is THE BEST #relationshipgoals I can have! 💃🏼 So, here's to self-love and being completely, utterly, and magically in love with yourself! 😘😉💁🏼♀️ Happy Thursday my dear Insta friends--go out and do something for YOU today!😊
