Holy wedding season Batman!
The fall is wrapping up and I have to admit: I’ve been swamped. September and October were my busiest months. Thank you SO MUCH to my amazing patient clients who have all been waiting on their images. What an incredible year I’ve had so far! I’ve photographed 36 weddings so far this year and 14 of those were in the last two months. In the meatime, somethings have fallen to the wayside, like my normally proflific daily blogging and sharing of published work. Here’s a few things I’ve missed in the last two months while I’ve been so slammed!
Mo and Adam and their kick ass Celio Ranch wedding in South Lake Tahoe was snapped up by the amazing Lydia over at Ever Ours. I’m so sad that the end of the year will also mark the end of Ever Ours, a wonderful wedding blog that celebrates photography and moments over details. If you know about another wedding blog as awesome as hers that can fill those (very large) shoes, please let me know!
Borrowed & Blue San Antonio
Borrowed & Blue has been one of my favorite wedding blogs for quite some time. They never complain that there’s not enough details for one, but they also seperate their blog into US cities. When they opened up a San Antonio version of their well known site, I was quick to send over Jimmy and Karlie’s 2014 destination wedding to them. It went up a few weeks back and it’s so fun to relive their awesome day. Jimmy and Karlie just welcomed all 8lbs 2oz of Natalie, the newest addition to their family last week.
The Daily Dog Tag
The Daily Dog Tag is an awesome little blog that I recently discovered that focuses on professional photography that involves dogs, adoptable pets around the country, and artful and unique products. They published the first in a series of sessions with Schnoll Family and are excited to post follow-ups with the newest member of their family, Jack. I just recently photographed Jack’s 6 month session, so you can imagine how long ago this one was! Regardless, big thanks to the Daily Dog Tag for the family photography internet love.
Love and Lavender
I’ve wanted to get a feature on Love and Lavender for ages, but I’ve never had anything quite romantic or whimsical enough for this wonderful wedding blog that focuses on inspiring, magical and rustic outdoor weddings. I knew that David and Emily’s Empire Mine State Park wedding was the perfect fit for them and it was published last week on their site.
I’ve had so many wonderful experiences with clients I’ve discovered on Thumbtack. Not only did Thumbtack take me to visit the White House in Washington DC last January (something I’ve yet to blog about also), but I managed to grow my business and turn it into a full time position for me in very few years thanks to them. I used to mentor photographers new to the Thumbtack platform, but gave it up when they changed the program and I was no longer helping just other photogs. Helping other photographers is incredibly rewarding: frankly I wouldn’t be where I am today without a lot of help from a lot of other people. Thumbtack asked to interview me a few weeks ago after catching site of a blog I wrote about how to be successful on Thumbtack for photographers and I readily agreed.
