FRIDAY FUN // I’m not condoning bad decision making, but...it’s National Margarita Day, so if you want to spend the day wasting away in Margaritaville, neither I, nor Jimmy Buffet, will take issue with your choices! I love my margaritas frozen and my favorite flavor would have to be strawberry mango! 🍹 Where do you stand on Mexico’s most famous cocktail? Do you enjoy them? Sí o no? #nationalmargaritaday
GRATITUDE // You probably already know (if you don’t, you can likely guess with a quick scroll through my feed) that I work as a wedding photographer. I absolutely love what I do, and could go on for days about the amazing friendships I have forged with so many of my brides. But if I’m naming my absolute favorite thing it would be having the privilege of playing even the smallest role in the happiest day of two people’s lives. Not a day goes by where that’s lost on me. What do you love most about what you do? 💕
TO GO, PLEASE! // Wedding tip: ask your caterer to pack a to-go box of wedding food for you. Most couples don’t find time to eat a lot during dinner and are starving by the end of the evening!! This will save you from the late night Taco Bell run in your fancy duds and you'll get to enjoy the food you paid for!
CONFESSION TIME 😅 // I’m a true crime junkie! 🙊 THERE!! I said it. Criminal Minds was my favorite show for years, until two of the main characters left (I’m still scarred by this, friends). Our Netflix account pushes the true crime documentaries right to the top for me. Facebook loves nothing better than to click-bait me with true crime stories all over my feed. And now, after a recommendation from my coworker @je_live, I have a serious true crime podcast addiction. I’m currently binging @thecoldpodcast and it. is. CRAZY! 😳 Tell me friends, are you a fan of true crime shows/podcasts? If so, send them my way, this girl’s gotta know!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #applepodcast #podcastaddict #courtneycarneyphoto #bridetobe #brideandgroom #engagedlife #howheasked #futuremrs #imengaged #gettinghitched #in_gaged #thedailywedding #realwedding #indianawedding #indywedding #indianaphotographer #indianaweddingphotographer #indianapolisphotographer #indianapolisweddingphotographer #chicagoweddingphotographer #illinoisweddingphotographer #ohioweddingphotographer #michiganweddingphotographer #midwestweddingphotographer #theknot #marthastewartweddings #stylemepretty #risingtide #communityovercompetition #socialcurator
Well, I survived and only had one crying in the corner moment that this big girl is THREE!! 😭 My favorites from her birthday party have hit the blog! They're a don't miss, as Harper busted out her best modeling moves for this session! 💁🏼♀️
Whew! It’s been the perfect day to hunker down and knock out some work!! And not to toot my own horn but…MAN did I kick butt on my to-do list today! 🥳 I knocked out new booking proposals, updated and created several wedding day timelines, answered emails, scheduled 2 wedding consultations, finished both my Bridal Guide and Engagement Session Style Guide, edited Harper's birthday photos, and finished planning this month’s social media content. 🙌🏻
I love your belly laugh. I love how strong and smart you are. I love that Jackson is still your best friend. I love how resilient you are, although we could do with a little less of the sass. 💁🏼♀️ I love your sweet smile and how kind you are to others. I love that you’re confident to try it yourself, but that you still ask for help if you need it. I love that you’re always up for an adventure and no sound is sweeter than your giggle when I attack you with kisses. I love that you’re such a big strong girl, but that you always still want your momma. 💕 I love you Harper Ann. Happy birthday, baby girl 💖
Happy Valentine’s Day to the man who caves and lets me order pizza way more than I should, cleans all the dirty dishes I can’t stand to do, and is the only one STILL who can get Harper go to sleep at night. @jdcarney26 thank you for loving me unconditionally and making me smile, each and every day 💖
