It’s funny that I’m blogging two weddings in one day but they’re my last for a while and my kids are ready for me to be DONE. As I write Ella is leaning over my chair asking if I’m finished with this post lol. She wants me to just come “sit” by her. And that’s okay. I’m happy to do that. In fact, ever since I’ve made the decision to take a break from shooting weddings I’ve noticed so many little details and beauties about my children that I’ve been missing wrapped up in a world of hustle and stress. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve loved my job for the past decade, but it’s time to just be done for a little while. I’m not sure how long my break will last. Technically I will have a wedding in December (for a past client I just couldn’t say no to because they’ve been so great to me in the past) but for the most part I can feel “done” until I’m ready to go again. I’m looking forward to having more time for what matters most to me (my family) and enjoying the moments that are passing quickly (toddlerhood). If you’re getting married next year and really want me to shoot your wedding, email me and you’ll be the first to know when I’m available.
Anyway, enough about me. Let’s talk about this “last” wedding of sorts. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ending. I seriously think working with Carissa and Mason was a dream. They were so kind, trusting, and totally willing to just let me do my thing. Plus they’re gorgeous. Enough said. Their wedding was spot on class with lots of dancing to all my favorite songs. I love wandering around a reception singing along as I go. I paid particular attention to the grandparents at this wedding because I’m realizing how important those shots are. I wish my grandma had boogied with me on the dance floor, and I definitely wish that if she had I’d have pictures to remember that moment by. Right down to their vintage car getaway this wedding was a gem and I feel honored to have been the one trusted to photograph it!
