This weekend was a great one, so, I thought I'd share some "gems" from it.
On Saturday, I shot a close friend's wedding. It was rustic, it was outdoors, and it was perfect. The weather was incredible (after threats of rain, and then threats of sunshine and 90-degree heat), just the right amount of clouds to hide the sun at times, and not at all as hot as predicted. It was really, really a beautiful day.
My friend Oliver helped me as an assistant, which he does from time to time, but for the first time, he was also my second shooter. This was really exciting for me, because I have never had or been a second shooter. It's fun, so as it is, to come home with a camera full of photos to sift through and edit, but even more fun to have a second camera with someone else's shots to go through. Here's a photo he captured during the posed shots. The wedding was at an orchard.
And here are a few photos from their preview. I couldn't peel away from editing yesterday afternoon, and was at these preview photos (15 total, I believe, which I obviously won't post here, but you can visit here: http://www.laurabarndtphotography.com) for about 5-6 hours.
Are they not the sweetest couple? They (and their bridal party and friends and family) made it such an easy, fun day.
Sunday, we went to church, and then had our friends Megan and Andy over with their kids. It's quickly becoming a Sunday night tradition to have our friends over, pull up some chairs around the fire pit outside, and laugh and chat over roasted marshmallows (or string cheese, if you're Andy...ha). Loving it.
I have some oil updates, for sure, but I'm scheduling posts for those the rest of this week and next, so, I'll save that chit-chat for later.
Ethan begins preschool tomorrow. I'm more nervous than I was even yesterday because he's suddenly telling me he isn't interested in going, while choking back tears. Ahhh. Pray for us. ;-)
Hope you had a great weekend! Enjoy your holiday!
