HAPPY MAY everyone!!! This sunny weather has me in an energetic mood and I’m excited to go to the gym today to run off this energy. I realize I need to go when I feel that motivation … who is with me on that? This past weekend was pretty awesome but also super busy. All worthwhile of course. :)
It started with an event I hosted for my SMP Brides (Stephanie Messick Photography Brides). I have DRASTICALLY slowed down my schedule for this month in preparation for the weddings I have booked. My dad texted me earlier last week letting me know that his fields were covered in yellow flowers! This makes my heart sing and I knew I needed to make a session happen there after photographing in the yellow flowers last year. :) Instead of hosting it for only one couple to enjoy, I thought why not open it up to my couples! There were ten minute time slots from 6:30-8:00 p.m. and I was able to document couple after couple during that short time we had together for whoever was interested. It was great for both parties because I was able to push myself due to the limited amount of time we had together while my couples were able to have updated spring portraits in a field of flowers. :) It was so much fun and a huge hit! Cannot wait to showcase more this week!
Saturday was finally Sean and Zari’s wedding day!!!! It was a jam packed day with events from the moment I arrived until midnight. It was SO much fun seeing Sean and Zari celebrate with their family and friends … and boy do they know how to party! Cannot wait to share more from their big day this week!!!
Oh and just a little side note! I FINALLY met one of my social media photog friends, Jennifer! She’s beautiful inside and out and I’m so glad we are officially not internet friends, but real life friends! :) Haha! Oh and my lovely second shooter, Ali, and I were SO thrilled to have had the chance to have henna done during the reception! I couldn’t sit down long enough for them to finish mine because I wanted to be on the dance floor but at least I had a little bit done for the experience. So cool! Unfortunately, Ali’s rubbed off pretty fast but I can see a little bit of the markings left at least. :) What a fun night!
Sunday was my relaxation day! :) While I cleaned my equipment from Saturday’s wedding, backed up my photos and played housewife by cleaning the house/making dinner, I could not help but to be on cloud nine after a joy-filled weekend! The sun really brightens my mood and I am so glad I was able to enjoy a sunny Sunday for once! It feels like forever since I have had a work-free sunny day so I am glad Kyle and I were able to enjoy it together. We hung out in the sun with Kyle’s family/nieces/nephews/cousins just purely enjoying God’s beautiful masterpiece. Afterwards, we took a little lunch of cheese and crackers and drank some yummy sangria at Phillip Carter. If you have never been, you have to try their sangria. :) It’s so so SO good! I hope everyone was able to enjoy the lovely weather! HAPPY MONDAY!
