Didn't this year just start? I feel like its going faster than I really want it to go. Oh well I guess I will embrace it. Just a few more days and Hockey starts so I felt I better get an updated 365 post going because soon I will have no time. But thats life and hey I am ready for hockey as well.
To say this year was fun with weddings is a complete understatement. This year was nothing but the best, with so many different and unique parts of each wedding. Nothing was the same, and it was always so fun to work with each couple.
Jake and Juliana-
Such a beautiful wedding with great wedding party. It helps when I know people in the wedding party, but this was a fun group dancing the night away. Did someone say no wedding cake....how can that be? Oh an Ice Cream bar....well then who cares about cake!
Matt and Kayla-
Well these two are pretty special to me. I mean come on who lets you shoot with them during deer hunting and then lets you shoot their wedding. And growing up with Matt it made me so happy to see him so happy marrying the love of his life. And a wedding party that well some of which were related, some of which I have made some awesome memories with, and some of which I have became friends with. Never will I forget the bus ride with this group!
Breanna and Ryan-
This couple and I had such a great time when we did their engagement session, I just knew that their wedding was going to be fun. When they said they weren't going to see each other before the wedding I was a little nervous, but man when that groom saw his bride the tears fell. I just love when the couple says "yes I would love to head off and do some fun sunset photos"
Kim and Jay-
Two families coming together as one, and the love those kids have for their new family is amazing! I hope one day my boys dance with me like Kim's boys did with her. Pizza....you said Pizza and wine. How perfect! Brick oven pizza at a winery with amazing cupcakes and popcorn. Talk about having the best of all worlds.
Bri and Mitch-
The details of this wedding were awesome! From the keys to a successful marriage, to the card box made by a relative, to the tractors, the father daughter dance, and down to the pie. What you say no cake...how can that be? Pie oh pie, how I love pie! The father daughter dance was a highlight but so was everything else about his wedding
Matt and Kinzie-
This couple made sure they had the memories from their day to last a lifetime. Custom jewelry, special details, and the love for God and each other. Learning how to play a new instrument was the goal for the groom, and I just had to hurry up and distract the bride because there was no way I was going to miss it. And a couple that rides off with their videographer and photographer on a golf cart to find the shot is pretty awesome in my book.
Today I sit here and think about pumpkin spice, blankets, football games, soon to be hockey time, and a pool that is coming down. But I am so thankful that I have documented the entire year we have had with my 365. Now where has the time gone? How can school be starting in just two days? But it is, and that means its time to enjoy another year with so many more memories.
Summer is almost gone, and that means that school is about to start. Fall is just around the corner which makes me happy and sad. Happy for the weather, sad because summer is going to be over, happy for routine, and happy for hockey. But sad for lack of time. My 365 has been amazing this year, I have spent some time focusing on me and what I want with my photography. The narrative society has been amazing, the people that I have met have been awesome. And its pushing me and making me grow that much more!
Spring is gone, summer is here, life is super crazy, but here I am still plugging away at my 365. I am not a poet for sure I can't believe that we are half way through July already. I feel like it should still be March. Oh well. I have been super busy lately with the kids, life and The Narrative Society. I signed up last quarter, struggled just a little because nothing was there to keep me accountable. Well they changed it this quarter and I have to say its been awesome! And I took a leap into underwater photography. Its been awesome, at first I was nervous to put my good camera underwater, but then after struggling with my backup camera I said I can't do this and put my good one underwater. So now there are lots and lots of pool photos.
I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, god-mother, friend, Christian, donkey loving, Director of Finance and HR, and photographer with a love for my clients and my camera!
