We are currently spending Thanksgiving in the Northeast visiting with friends and family! We are enjoying the colder weather and sitting by a fire but can’t wait to share some blog goodies with you when we return!
First, we have to go back to the beginning of November when I attended Partner Con in New Orleans. I was part of two shoots while I was there, but because of time constraints (i.e. holiday order deadlines and editing demands) plus waiting on a model release I haven’t been able to edit them. They are already prepped and just waiting to go once I get back to the desk, but in the meantime here’s a little teaser:
Most recently, we shot the beautiful and very joyous wedding of Kiranmayi & Rishiraj in New Jersey. It was such a phenomenal experience and we were already miss all of their friends and family! They were so sweet and generous and made sure we ate tons of food (you really couldn’t say no, which is fine with us because we LOVE Indian food!). Here’s a peek at what’s to come from their wedding:
We’ve been busy every day on our trip! On Sunday, we headed up to Massachussetts (about 45 minutes north of where we are in Connecticut) and met up with Carmen & Kyle to chat about their wedding next May! We’ve been talking for months now but this was our first time meeting in person! Then we met up with Melissa & Alex, who we met at Sheba & Nolan’s wedding back in September. They will be getting married down in Florida next July, but you’ll be seeing them on the blog before then! ; )
Monday we had planned on a shoot in Boston, but unfortunately we had to cancel. The weather turned out to be terrible anyway, but it was still such a bummer.
Things turned around today with a bit of sunshine and a visit down to the southern part of Connecticut to visit with two incredible photographers, Robert & Kathleen Trenske. Their work is just gorgeous and we had such a great time chatting with them about weddings in New England vs. weddings in Florida, workflow, and more!
Tomorrow we’ll be heading down to New Haven to meet up with two of my favorite people in the whole world, the uber fabulous Justin & Mary Marantz! Matt is so excited to meet them for the first time and admits he is a bit starstruck. Yeah, they are pretty awesome!
THEY ARE COMING TO JACKSONVILLE!!! YES!!!
They will be stopping in Jacksonville as part of their Spread The Love Tour on January 19th! They are offering an insane sale on Black Friday – $50 registration! I’m scared it will sell out before I get on the computer! Guess I need to camp out starting at midnight!
Wow… can you tell I’m excited?!
But before the big Black Friday sales, we will end our trip with a big Thanksgiving feast on Long Island with Matt’s family. For some reason, the holidays seem so significant this year. It’s like we really NEED the holidays this year. Even though we have been so blessed this year (beyond even our own belief sometimes), I feel like it has been a rough year in general for everyone. So I hope the holidays bring joy into everyone’s lives, because we could all use time with family and lots of hugs right about now! Hopefully you are feeling the spirit of the holidays as well, and Matt & I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!! : )
