I’m tired in ways I didn’t know I could be…so very tired. This past weekend I was a bridesmaid in one of my dearest friend’s wedding…an all day, in the sun, wedding affair… she was beautiful by the way. On Sunday morning, I met with a bridal consultant in Cincinnati named Tiesha Frazier of Creative Affairs (www.creativeafflairs.com) … who is wonderful by the way and who I highly recommend… and on Sunday afternoon we shot a wedding in Cincinnati… which was so beautiful and the reception was at the Bell Event Centre, which is just breath-taking. We got home somewhere around 12:30, got to bed about 1:30, and I was back up at 7:00 to get ready to meet a friend for breakfast. I’m not accustomed to such constant going… so I’m still in recovery : )
So remember a while ago when I wrote that post about shooting without flash? No? Well, I did…and the thing is… I’ve kind of become completely intrigued by and addicted to it. At the moment, I can’t make myself shoot with flash…I love the challenge and effects of shooting without it. It scares me sometimes… because I don’t know how it will be received. I don’t know how people will feel about that extra grain… but there is something so haunting about it… at least, I hope someday my pictures will haunt people in the same good way that my hero from the UK’s photographs haunt me. So unless I note otherwise, all of my pictures from here on out(these included) will be shot without flash… at least for the time being! Also… I know there is excessive collaging happening here… I just learned how to collage today…I may have gone a little overboard…
I loved Courtnee’s dress and decor… she did everything so beautifully and affordably. She is extremely stylish : ) Savannah helped Jason and I at this wedding and I was so glad to have her there… it was really good to be able to share that with her. And as always, I don’t know what I would do without Jason… I really do need him at weddings to maintain my sanity.
I thought Courtnee could handle this Regina song for her slideshow. Regina is definitely an acquired taste, but I think Courtnee appreciates her and of course, we all appreciate John Lennon’s, “Real Love”.
