Yesterday I had the opportunity to photo shoot my first wedding. Not sure if I would want to continue photo shooting weddings with the way this wedding turned out. I arrived on location at 3:30, the wedding was supposed to start at 5:00. When I walked into the church nothing was setup! I was in shock. The bride did not show up until 4:15 then had to leave because the flower girl didn't have a dress. When she arrived back at the church it was 4:45 and she wasn't even ready yet! YIKES! I ended up letting everyone know when to walk into the church, when the minister was to go in front of the church, helped the bride get ready and round up her father from smoking the food to get dressed! I felt more like the wedding planner/coordinator than the photographer. It was so hot (heat index of 105-110 degrees) that the bride ended up not wanting a lot of shots outside. I did get a few good ones though if you ask me!
So here's a sneak peek!

...for my family! Remember this post? Well one of the prayer requests that I couldn't tell y'all about is going to be revealed. And if you follow me on twitter you may see the update sooner than later! Please pray that everything is okay and that the Lord will watch over that family member! I'm so excited right now I can't even explain it!
It's time to confess what I did not do for the last 3 weeks. Yes I'm aware I have not posted since the beginning of June but I've had a lot going on. So here's to my confessing!
I did not get asked if I wanted a promotion at work. My VP couldn't even tell me what my raise will be. If I do indeed take this position I won't start until October or November. This position is a lot closer to home so I will not be saving money on fuel. I should know at the end of June what this job pays. So it's a wait and see game. I'm interested if only the pay is right!
I did not take Haley to Chuck E Cheese by myself on Saturday night. That would just be too insane for one person to do. I didn't take my eyes off her for even one second. I think she could tell I was nervous and was the sweetest angel ever!
I also did not stay in my pj's until 5:30 Sunday night. That would be mean I'm too lazy to get ready for the day. I also did not get ready just to go to the store to buy apple sauce and sour cream to make apple bread. I'm really not that lazy I just wanted a weekend to relax like I've had the past 3 weeks!
I also am not scared of my first wedding I'm shooting on Saturday. I hope I get the perfect pictures and they all turn out wonderful!
Shutterfly did not offer me a free 8x8 album to make! I had 20 pages to make and it is just the cutest book ever! I'm sure you can guess who the book is all about! :)
