It was not my intention to take so much time off from posting, but life happens. And boy, has it been happening!! Anybody else feel like you’re wrestling with emotions through these weird times? One day I feel like I’m on top of it with homeschooling, cooking, cleaning and work, and then the next day I feel so frustrated with these life demands and constraints.
Like most of you all, we have barely left the house in over 10 weeks, and I’m ready to get some normalcy back into our lives. I’m ready to work, to see my couples, to celebrate love, and to feel a good balance with being a work-from-home mom. I’m ready to see our families regularly again, to send the kids to stay with the grandparents (ha!), to spend an hour leisurely walking the aisles of Target, to hug my friends. And let’s be honest, I’m most definitely ready to go to the hair salon! This quarantine has sprouted a plethora of new gray hairs!
At this point, I’ve had 11 weddings change their plans. Whether it’s postponing the whole event or eloping or having their ceremony now and reception later. I’m extremely grateful that my brides checked with me first about switching dates so we could keep our contracts! Another silver lining is that I was also able to meet two new couples due to these circumstances. Since they had to change dates, they needed a new photographer and I’m so glad my sweet vendor friends connected me with them. Like Cindy and Andrew here referred by Beckon Events. Their reception will be in October, but they asked if I would photograph their ceremony on the originally planned date.
I’ll be honest and say I was nervous about all the “what ifs”, but it felt so good to be back behind my camera…something NORMAL to me! We kept our distance during photos, no touching, and lots of sanitizing. I know this wasn’t the way Cindy and Andrew had envisioned for April 25, but it was perfect. No stress, and all joy for their Spartanburg elopement.
Even if I can’t bring back all of my normal life routine right now, at least I can reconnect here by sharing some happiness and love. Thanks for sticking with me and hope you all are holding up ok too!
Cindy and Andrew’s family connected with a Zoom call so they could watch the ceremony too!
We drove over to downtown Spartanburg to get some portraits and we had the most beautiful weather to enjoy! My favorite!
