An Olive Branch of Happy Pretty Pictures

posted on: December 16, 2008

I know I have some blog fans out there who are wondering if I shot any weddings this year or not?! YES!! I just haven't had time to blog them all!! I put a lot of work into my wedding blog posts, and I'd rather take the time to make it amazing than just put up something just for the sake of speed. It takes me pretty much an entire day to create a blog post for a wedding, yet writing a post about my favorite things or tips for brides is usually takes me less than an hour. So- to save time while taking care of holiday orders and trying to get everyone online before year's end, hopefully you can see why I've been blogging about everything other than my weddings lately!!

This has been a VERY busy and very EXCITING year!! I'll be sharing more about what happened this year in my year end recap- the good and the bad just as I've done in the past, but for now, I know some people just want to see pretty pictures, so here are just a few of the gorgeous brides I've worked with this year!! (If you're on Facebook, you've probably seen these already. ;-)) There were soo many!! Most of these are posed images that I happen to have easy access to right now while several of my hard drives are backing up before I leave for the holidays... which I still need to pack for!! EEK!! The juicy wedding details and moments will come later on. ;-) For now, I offer you some pretty posed pictures (and just a few great moments)!

So, if you look at the locations of all those weddings, you'll notice that they are in completely different places around the country and OUT of the country - and there were even more locations I went to this year, which has kept me very, very, very busy. More about that later. For now I hope you can just appreciate that I really am a working photographer who is just trying to make her clients happy behind the scenes, which might mean making posting everything to the blog a lower priority for now- I promise I'll make up for it after I've been able to get my clients taken care of!! HUGS & HOT COCOA!!
