Awesome Weekend!! (My Feet Still Hurt)

I had the most wonderful time this weekend! I shot two weddings and like I said in the title, my feet still hurt! I got the extreme pleasure of doing Melissa and Will's wedding ,as well as, De and Nathan's wedding. The first wedding was at a small quaint church in Milton, Al. The ceremony was one of the sweetest I have ever heard. The way that Will looked at Melissa was priceless. You know that a man truly loves the woman he's with when you see how he looks at her. Will couldn't take his eyes off of Melissa for the rest of the day. Sweet, sweet, sweet! Every girl dreams of having someone look at her the way Will looks at Melissa. I wish you so much joy in the future.
De and Nathan had a beautiful ceremony as well. As usual, with both weddings, I got a little emotional! De and Nathan have been together for quite some time and to see them finally get married was precious. Their reception was also quite eventful! The fire alarm went off in the building before the reception got started good. We all had to evacuate the building and go across the street! We did get some awesome pics of De and the girls by the fire truck! By the way, for future reference, don't get ON the fire truck! We had a great time and I also wish De and Nathan many years of happiness!

I will post some preview pictures soon of both weddings! I'm a little behind so I promise I will get busy this week! I hope you all have a great week!

Featured Gallery...Kimberly & Joe

What can I say...we had so much fun. Kimberly brought her precious little dog, Saige, to the shoot in hopes of getting some pics with her. At our first destination, sweet little Saige locked herself ,as well as the keys, in the car. For those of you that know where I live, we were there but about five miles deeper into the woods, on a dirt road, down by the creek. Of course we had no cell service, well I take that back. We did have cell service if you stood on one leg, facing north, and held on to a tree limb. Anyway, loooong story short, after about an hour, my handy dandy brother Aden came and saved the day with a clothes hanger. Needless to say, the rest of the day Saige behaved perfectly. I think it scared her to death.
Joe and Kimberly were also great sports. If it had been my husband and the dog had locked the keys in the car, he could not have looked so peaceful in the pictures. In fact, we would have probably just gone home. So thank you Joe for being relaxed despite it all. You both were so much fun to work with! I wish you well with your marriage and I'll see you at Sam's wedding. Have a great week!

During the week of September 8th , I am sponsoring the "Song of the Day" on Mix 103. The studio will be mentioned on WSFA at 5:45 in the morning...yes I know, reeeallly early :0) and again throughout the day. If you are an early riser, tune in. They will play the song on Mix between the 8 and 9 o'clock hours. I am giving away a $65 gift certificate each day to the winner. This is just the beginning...I have even more to announce at the end of next week! I am having so much fun and can't wait for next week!

Welcome Blake!

I am so happy to announce that I have a new assistant! His name is Blake and he attends Marbury High School. He plans on attending Savana School of Art and Design next fall. He is such an awesome young man and has such potential in the art and photography field. He will be helping me with all of my weddings coming up and could not have come around at any better time. I look forward to teaching him the little I know and also learning from him. Welcome Blake...I am so glad to have you!

Featured Gallery....JT & Leanne

I had the extreme pleasure of photographing JT & Leanne from the Mix 103 morning show and their girls this past Saturday. They wanted to have their pictures taken with downtown Prattville as the backdrop. As usual, we had quite the 45 minute adventure. Their children were precious and of course I am a little biased because I also have three daughters. It was a sneak peek into my future! Each girl had such individual personalities and each one was so adorable! They were a ball to work with. JT & Leanne were also good sports despite the fact that Leanne hates mud :0) I just want to thank them for allowing me to spend time with them this weekend and for being so adventurous ! I look forward to working with them over the next few weeks. I'll let you in on more about that next Friday! You can check out a few of their pics in the "featured" section of my website. Have a great week!

Hurricane Winds

I know this sounds a little crazy, but I love the feel of hurricane winds. Not when it is pouring rain and horrible outside, but when the winds come on shore before the hurricane hits. Last night I was cooking chicken on the grill and it felt like heaven outside. I just stood out on my back patio and let the wind blow through my hair and watched the stars. I know I inherited this love of weather, in general, from my daddy. We are the only two people I know that love to just sit and watch the weather channel for long periods of time...over and over. When there is a tornado warning we put the children in a safe place and we go see where the weather is. If we know it is directly on us we get in the closet with the babies but until then, we have to watch it. Anyway, I know this has nothing to do with photography but I just wanted you all to know I was still here. I have been so busy the past few weeks I just haven't had time to post. The next few weeks I have some really exciting things going on. I will let you in on more of that at the beginning of next week. Also this week I will be posting more engagement and bridal pics of some of the weddings coming up. I am slam packed between now and the second week of November, which I am so happy about. I hope you all have a great week!
