Sometimes, I can't believe how lucky I get. Gorgeous venue, wonderful people, and hilarious speeches. Give me those three things, and I'll have a blast at any wedding. Alana and Steven's was brilliant for so many reasons.
It's been a crazy few months for me recently: changing jobs, rehearsing as the lead for a musical I was supposed to stage manage, watching my photography business slow down from afar, and learning what it means to be in a solid relationship. To say I've been stressed is a bit of an understatement, but there are silver linings, if not wonderful perks to each of these. Amidst all of this madness, my girlfriend and I decided that we desperately needed a weekend getaway, so we decided to go to Savannah, GA with one major condition: neither of us could talk about our day jobs; and if we did, only with positive connotations. I was luckily allowed to talk about my photography work if necessary.
I'm a very lucky guy. Actually, that really doesn't even come close to covering it. Through several faults of my own, I managed to get a girlfriend that is absolutely incredible. Besides the fact that she's a great partner, I also got stupid lucky with the fact that she's a stylist at a local wedding dress shop.
The things that I have learned.....
I'm kind of amazed at how often I get this question. Then again, maybe I shouldn't be because if you ask my girlfriend, I'm definitely considered "metrosexual (I spend a few extra minutes staring aimlessly at my closet each morning, trying to figure out my outfit for any given day. Anyways......)." I get it, though - you wanna look awesome for your portrait or engagement session so why not ask the dude with a camera who should know what does and does not look fabulous (did I really just say that?). I'm super organized and love lists, so here's one with some suggestions and tips on what to wear!
