Wedding Planners, Lenses and Amazing Husband- OH MY!

This has been a crazy busy week for me, thus far. I'm using every spare moment I have to finish editing Denise and Nico's wedding. In between that I'm being a mom, getting massages (not for pleasure, unfortunately, still trying to recoup from our accident!), scheduling meetings, and getting ready for this weekend's wedding.

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting a local Wedding Planner, Nicole Miller. Nicole recently started a franchise with Sweet Beginnings Wedding Consulting and Event Planning. I received an email from Nicole last week asking if I'd like to meet her and be one of her vendor contacts for future clients of hers. I was floored! What an awesome opportunity! Nicole found my website and loved my photos and I can't even tell you how amazing that feels. Another super encouraging part of my job!

After that I unfortunately had to go grocery shopping at Superstore. I try to avoid that place as much as possible. All I want to say about that trip is that I hate their grocery carts. Enough said. Anyway, when I arrived I got a text from James saying my new lens was in!!!!! So I tried to race through my list and out the store (haha, if you know Superstore, you know that "race through" is the most unlikely thing to happen there!)

I am now in possession of a Canon 35mm f/1.4 L lens!!!!!!! SO excited!!!

I had to try it out right away!

My husband. Wow, what a catch. I am seriously blessed to have this man in my life. Tonight I was especially in awe of him. Not sure if I mentioned this already or not, but James will be my second shooter this weekend at an out of town wedding. He's borrowing my mom's Canon Rebel XS and will be helping me out, which I'm very excited about.  I've been reminding him to practice. I want to be confident with him by my side, knowing that he knows how to work his camera and that he'll be able to get those extra shots that I want to have. I've been a little nervous about it. Not sure if he'd really been practicing and whatnot. Until tonight. I had no idea he was practicing as much as he has been!!! There were tons of pictures on the camera from him testing it out and figuring out different exposures and techniques. I was flabbergasted. For reals. Jaw dropped to the floor stunned.  He blew me away. I'm not sure why I ever doubted him. I just love that about him so much. So, thanks James! I'm SO excited to work with you this weekend!!! Maybe we'll be the next Jasmine Star and JD?! haha

Speaking of Jasmine Star... I'm currently watching some of her creativeLIVE workshop and am SO excited about it! I'm already looking forward to putting some of this knowledge to use this weekend!!! Can't wait!

Anyway, I'm going back to editing!
