Boy howdy, folks, have I been busy lately! Between the end of the semester, defending my prospectus, and then traveling up North? Phew, I’m exhausted!
Before I left for Rhode Island, a conference at Yale, and then a quick visit to NYC, I photographed TJ & Ashley’s beautiful wedding.
And right when I got back, there was Jessica & Jeff’s stunning and sweet beach wedding.
Keep your eyes peeled for both of those weddings coming up over the next month.
Lately I’ve been doing some headshots. On the left we have Deb who wanted an updated headshot for her international job search. On the right we have Alea who needed a headshot for her SGA presidency at Bainbridge State College.
Next up is Nikki. Once upon this past fall, she was one of my photography students (and her son just finished my photo class this spring too). Things changed drastically this spring when her husband passed unexpectedly. It was especially difficult as she also worked to finish the semester. There were days and weeks when she had her doubts (though I never did), but she succeeded and graduated from Florida State University this May! I am tremendously proud of my friend’s accomplishments and her resilience! In one of these photos you’ll see her holding a framed image of her and her husband – it was important to her to have him by her side for this event since he had supported her through her education and over half her life.
Last up for today we have Jana! She just turned 22 and had a Kate Spade themed birthday dinner (lucky gal!). We couldn’t resist taking a fun portrait and headshot of the lass to celebrate the event!
So forgive me for being tremendously busy, my dear friends. I hope these photos make up for it a little. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to hop back to the dissertation process and work on putting together my summer art appreciation courses. 😀
Shamara and I are old friends by now. I can’t even count how many times we’ve chatted on the phone to get ready for this shoot!
She might be a bit shy, but this gal is a blast to be around. She’s got a fantastic smile! Plus, she and her mom kept making me giggle.
And you know how I feel about giggles. 😀 It was more humid today in Maclay Gardens than we expected, but I still got some fantastic shots of this valedictorian. Yep, her smarts are exceptional. I’d talk more about the awesomeness of her brain but I don’t want this to turn into a zombie-focused post. On to the photos!
Remember Brittany & Jason? I photographed their lovely family just 6 days before their wedding (and still managed to have beautiful prints for them to show off at their wedding!). They decided to get married on his family property. You’ll see the golf carts a few times and I’ve never been so thankful for them in my life! We all had a ton of fun at this wedding in the woods. Congrats to Brittany + Jason!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my clients rock! Truly! Blair left me these super sweet words about her photography experience on my FB fan page: “Ansley took my engagement and wedding photos. You don’t understand our experience. I HATE pictures of myself. I never smile and I am just not comfortable… Ansley made it feel so easy and natural. I felt so relaxed, which is totally not me. We have AWESOME ENGAGEMENT PICTURES and memorable wedding photos that I will cherish forever. And it wasn’t one of two, it was all of them. I couldn’t decide which ones I wanted because they were all amazing. Thank you so much for making my big day even better!!!!”
Well hot diggity dog! I’m so happy that she’s so happy that I’m going to share some of their top engagement photos. Only partially because we had a blast. And I got kidnapped.
This is where the kidnapping came in. Jody & Blair whisked me off to his family’s land outside of town. This is one of the old homes they hope to fix up and grow their own family in. Super sweet!
Thanks, Blair & Jody, for taking me on that adventure! And, uh, returning me too. 😉
