I love when families ask for me to come back to shoot weddings multiple times! I shot Jayne’s sister, Ann’s wedding a few years ago and they asked me back to shoot Jayne’s wedding! (and I’ll be shooting their brother’s wedding in a few months as well) What an incredible honor to be chosen time and time again! Thank you Swank family for believing in me and trusting me with your multiple weddings! I can’t wait to head back up to Pennsylvania for the next one!
Earlier this fall I was super blessed to get to help capture the wedding of Colleen and Sean. My amazingly talented friend, Amber Anderson, was contracted to shoot this wedding and since I lived a mere 6 hours away, I decided to make the trip with her to help her shoot it! What better than a road trip with one of your best friends and then getting to shoot a gorgeous wedding once you reach your destination! Sometimes it’s good for the soul to step into a 2nd photographer position where you can work on shooting things differently or challenge yourself in ways you couldn’t as the primary shooter – and we had a blast together! Below are just a few of my images from the day. I hope you enjoy!
After much thought, prayer, and consideration, I have decided to expand this one wo(man) operation and add an intern to the staff of BerryTree Photography! (This is scary for me…but SO exciting at the same time) BerryTree Photography has grown so much over the past 4 years, that I am now at maximum capacity and could really use some help. The unpaid internship position is a part-time position (10-15 hours per week) and is located at my home office in Lawrenceville, GA.
Wedding season is about to start up again! Yippee! My first wedding of the year is on February 25th and I’m READY to get back out there and start shooting all of my precious brides and grooms! But before the craziness begins again I was able to take a much needed vacation to San Diego for a week and a half. Today is my last day here, and I’m so sad to be leaving this incredible weather to come back to a cold and windy ATL. So…I thought I’d share a bit of my trip with ya’ll and relive all of the amazing adventures I’ve had!
The BEST friends a girl could ask for got to hang out! I am incredibly close with 6 other photographers who live all over…literally! Gulf Shores, AL – Dallas, TX – San Diego, CA – Portland, OR – Edmonton, Canada and Ottawa, Canada! Seriously I am blessed beyond measure to call each of them my friend! We try to get together at least once a year in one of our hometowns and explore the area as well as save plenty of time for girl talk! You might remember my Portland trip in August….this time it was San Diego! We started our trip with a day at Coronado. So pretty and such history!
The next day we did Disneyland…and we did it right! We got to the park at 9am and didn’t leave until midnight! 15 hours STRAIGHT baby! As we walked in the gates we were skipping down the street…when we left we were bending over…stretching our backs…rubbing our knees…we were exhausted but had the time of our lives!
The rest of the weekend we went shopping, ate lots of yummy food, watched a few sunsets and in general just had lots of girl time. It is so awesome to be with a bunch of friends where you click on so many levels. Yes, we had our fair share of nerdy photographer talk, but most of the weekend was spent talking about husbands, kids, dating (me!), things going on in our lives, and already talking about our next time we’ll get together! Love these girls!
We did fit in a little time for a photoshoot – THIS is what happens when 7 photographers that are usually BEHIND the camera get together and decide to try and take a nice portrait and be on the other side of the lens…things turn CRAZY! Told ya we have fun doing ANYTHING!
All of my girls left on Monday, but I stayed behind to hang out with Shari and her family for the rest of the week! She has two precious little girls (5 year old twins) that I totally “used” to get to have more fun! Wednesday we decided to take a walk and enjoy some of the gorgeous California scenery! Seriously…isn’t this amazing!? And…Shari and I had a hot date together! :-P
Friday we went back to Disney…so amazing to see Disney again but through children’s eyes. They just LIT up when they saw the princesses….so incredibly adorable! And I got to meet Mickey!
Saturday, Shari, her husband Travis and I went on a hike at Torrey Pines! The trail leads to the Pacific Ocean and ends in amazing views! We don’t get rock cliffs and scenery like this in GA! Who wants to get married here? I would LOVE to shoot a wedding with these views! Incredible!
I leave tomorrow and while I’m sad to leave San Diego, I’m also glad to get back to GA and get back into the swing of things…wedding season…HERE I COME!
From the beach! My view…for real…no I didn’t do it, but I couldn’t help but take a picture! Much love to you all and a special shout out to my mama! I wouldn’t be the strong, confident, loving woman I am with your constant support and unending love. I love you immeasurably! Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
