It’s TGIFriday! Yoo-hoo! It’s also the eve of our first weekend off after 5 straight weddings, and we have big plans to cram in as much fall fun as we can…starting with a hayride tonight! I thought Ashlynn’s senior shoot would be a good way to wrap up the week! This girl is beautiful, and her hair is to DIE for!
I enjoyed shooting Kristina’s senior session sooooo much! Here mom and grandmother came along, and we were able to shoot in some different locations, thanks to friends of Kristina’s family. It was a gorgeous, if slightly cool, fall day, and Kristina is such a natural in front of the camera! She was one of my senior models, and I am going to miss getting to take her picture!
Here are a few favorites from Kristina’s session……
When Rachel and Daniel look at each other, there’s no question at all that they are wildly in love. They make you believe in love….the fairy-tale kind that mostly just seems real on television and in movies. Rachel and Daniel’s wedding day felt very much like a real-life fairytale, and it was such an honor to get to be the one to document the day! A great group of vendors was responsible for making the day as perfect as could be!Vendors: Venue: Hendrix College Greene Chapel Reception: Conway Country Club DJ: Central Arkansas Entertainment Dress: Low’s Bridal in Brinkley Florals/Reception: Cathy’s Flowers in Russellville
Here are some favorites from the day, and you can see more from Rachel and Daniel’s wedding in the slideshow!
It’s that time of year again…time to figure out and coordinate outfits for 10 people….try to prepare 4 kids, three under the age of 5, to please, please, PLEASE cooperate for a few family pictures (can you say BRIBES?!) It’s hard, I tell ya!
Sometimes I forget how hard……and I guess it’s a good reminder of the stress of being on the other side of the camera!
Huge thanks to Tryston Hines for snapping our group shots. The rest of the images were taken by either me or Lori…..
Whew! I’m always so happy to have these yearly pictures, but I am also so happy to have them done with for another year!
Happy Thursday! The weekends almost hereHere are a few shots of Jordan, from his senior session a couple of weeks ago….
So, Kelly was sweet enough to share she and Jay’s story with me after the shoot! In her words……
One of our mutual friends decided we would be a great match. He called Jay and then, me, to let us both know. We didn’t get to meet the first time we had planned, though, in a night out with friends. Jay’s grandmother was sick in West Memphis, and he couldn’t make it. A week later, we met and ended up talking, along with a group of friends, for the rest of the evening. I invited Jay to a fundraiser that I was attending the following night, but he never gave me a straight answer as to whether he would attend. The next night I looked for him all night, but he never came! A few days later, he Facebook messaged me and told me he enjoyed meeting me. I responded and gave him my number, just in case, we “all” wanted to hang out again. I didn’t hear back from him that night or the next and was a little discouraged. On Tuesday I had another message from Jay. Apparently, I had given him the wrong number!! He said, “unless you have a guy on your voice mail, you gave me the wrong number!” I was so embarrassed and quickly sent him the correct number. He texted me immediately and asked me to meet him that night with some other friends. I went and never looked back! Thank goodness he tried to contact me again, even after I sent him the wrong number! We started dating and were engaged in New Orleans on May 30th in the Carousal Lounge at the Hotel Monte Leon. Then we spent an amazing week celebrating our engagement! We look forward to spending the rest of our lives together beginning April 27, 2013!
I met up with Kelly and Jay earlier this week to shoot their engagement session at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch. I enjoyed hanging out with these two SO much, and I can’t wait for their wedding this spring! Here are a few favorites, and you can see more in the slideshow!
