So its been a while to say the very least. I always seem to shake my head in shame when I realize how neglected our little blog has been the past year. It has become a running joke that on every to do list I make it is the one item left standing. We’ve had an amazing rollercoaster of a year in our business and in our personal lives. Business has been phenomenal. More fulfilling and plentiful than we imagined possible. We have worked with some incredible couples who we absolutely adore and have been welcomed into so many families that we feel blessed beyond belief to be doing this job we love so much. The down side of being crazy busy is the blog found its way to the low end of our priority list. We always put our clients and our work first and foremost and although our blog is a beautiful means of sharing our latest work and adventures and keeping everyone involved in our little world, at the end of the day there just hasn’t been enough time for it. I have faced some very personal health challenges the last few years and the most recent 18 months have definitely been the hardest emotionally. Although, nothing serious and it has not affected my work, it has diminished most all of my free time that I used to spend blogging. No worries though, I’m feeling great and have had some wonderful breakthroughs in the last months and feel like I’m well on my way to feeling like myself again. All that gobbledygook aside I am able to spend more time doing things I love, like blogging!! Well at least get back on the blogging train. So to kick it off I wanted to share some of the wonderful publications we have been honored to be featured in over the last few months. Most recently, Southern Living Weddings Edition. We are very proud of this as they only publish their wedding edition once a year and we’re thrilled they chose Hillery & Ricky’s beautiful Club Continental Wedding to showcase. The 2011 Ultimate Guide is filled to the brim with amazing real weddings and inspiration. It’s on newstands across the country right now so pick one up and be inspired.
We were also really excited to have three mentions in the November issue of Brides Florida. Two photos and one interview blip from me on what we look for from great engagement session locations. I will say as much as we love a killer location… nothing beats a couple who are completely in love and free to be themselves in front of our cameras. That is the recipe for a truly memorable engagement session. You hear that brides & grooms… cut loose and embrace your love for one another and your photos will be stunning! I promise.
Although this one isn’t in the group shot above. The magazine came in later than those four. We are giddy that Brides Atlanta chose Dana & Jonathan’s intimate Sea Island Wedding for their Spring/Summer 2011 issue. Georgia brides, you can find it on newsstands now. Its a great issue. I can’t say enough how much I adore small intimate weddings. There is a magic there that just isn’t the same with a huge event. You can see the shot of the bride and groom and ALL their guests just below their names in the feature. Yes all 20 people are pictured. So cool.
So like I said… I am bound and determined to get back to blogging and sharing all sorts of new goodies with you all. We have had some gorgeous weddings the past few months and have been playing with all kinds of new techniques and can’t wait to share it all on here. Until then here is a little peek at my “to be blogged” list. Crazy right!?! So I promise you are all in store for a whole mess of eye candy coming up. This is the only time I have ever been thankful some of our boudoir clients choose to remain private. If they all let me show their images too that list would have had at least another post it added on. I’m pretty sure 3 is my post-it limit.
