Best of 2014: Wedding Parties

This post looks like it’s definitely going to be my most colorful recap! I love meeting the most important people in my couples’ lives and seeing all the ways they help serve and celebrate their friends.

My chief goal during this time was getting great photos, but my second biggest goal was not falling off the dock while doing so. Only a few close calls.

Winter Round-Up!

Pausing the 2014 photography recap series this week to do a little winter rehash! All in the hopes of making the spring come faster by declaring winter all summed up. Who’s with me?

01-15 Winter Round-Up-1

I’m very pro-potluck and into having as many Thanksgiving dinners as possible, so we went to four celebrations this year! Here’s to five in 2015!

01-15 Winter Round-Up-2 01-15 Winter Round-Up-3

I popped down to Maryland for a weekend to celebrate Kara and baby H! Our friends Jo and Chelsie KILLED IT on their tablescaping.

We hosted a little gingerbread house making party and of course the Invisibooth came out to play! Target has not failed us in the dollar Christmas headband department.

01-15 Winter Round-Up-9

This is the trailer we (okay, Kealan) made, complete with dog (or sheep, depending on how generous you’re feeling).

01-15 Winter Round-Up-10

We spent Christmas in Massachusetts with Kealan’s family, and Colby was happy as a clam to be with his grandma all week.

Immediately after Massachusetts, we flew down to Florida with my parents to DISNEY!

Obviously we stopped to say hello to Team Hogwarts while we were down there.

Best of 2014: Engagement Sessions!

One big change I made to my business in the last year was to include an engagement session in every wedding package and it has been the BEST THING! In a large part because they can get used to being in front of my camera so that they’re all warmed up for the big day, but also so they can get used to me and my corny jokes being behind the camera ;)

If I am the kind of photographer that has a lot of ice cream in her shoots, then I am doing something right.
