This was a simple, beautiful wedding that was filled with so much joy! I enjoy going to weddings where the bride and groom are just so happy and excited and this was definitely one of those weddings. I'm so excited for them!
The image above is thanks to my second photographer Jenna Wayment
This past Saturday, I was honored to take pictures at Amy and Blake's wedding! While I don't have those pictures edited yet I can finally upload Amy's Bridal Portraits! So in lieu of a wedding sneak peak I'm posting Amy's Bridals! Isn't she such a beautiful bride!
It took awhile, but I've gotten enough projects done in the living room that I'm happy enough with it to put pics up! Ok, so this picture was taken in January and I kept forgetting to post on this...and even now I've gotten more projects done and the living room looks a little different. I've unpacked more of our decorations so the walls and everything isn't quite as bare. But this is still a close representation of our current living room.
A Closer picture of the rug and our new couch.
Our goal is to set aside $100 dollars a month to slowly replace our furniture. When we were in Clemson, we could literally look around our living room and everything had been given to us for free or we had gotten it from good will (oh yeah, college student budget days). In the month of October, since Will and I were both working, we had a little extra money so we bought our sectional, which meant that we didn't have to lug our couch and loveseat all the way to Atlanta and up two flights of stairs. Since then, our $100 each month has mostly been going to living room projects, which I will just sum up now and go into detail later.
1. Giant Crochet Rug (I actually finished this in Clemson right before we moved because I was afraid the movers would unravel all of my hard work)
2. Overhead light
3. Entertainment Center made from a dresser
4. Our board game center (not actually finished in this picture)
6. Mounted our TV (thanks to the tv mount my brother got me for Christmas!)
That's all for now! I'll post more on each individual project later!
I knew it had been awhile, but I did not realize that this is my first post of the new year. Shame on me. First of all, Happy Easter! On Good Friday, Will and I went to Secret Church to listen to David Platt. This year, the topic was heaven, hell and the end times and as usual, it was so encouraging in my walk with the Lord. If you have never heard of secret church, David Platt is a very gifted teacher who can can teach a ton (literally flood you with information)and still make it easy enough to understand and retain all while keeping every topic Christ centered (which is why it is always such an encouragement to me instead of being overwhelming). I think this year, because of the topic I was just reminded and filled with gratitude over Christ's finished work at the cross of salvation. I highly recommend listening to any of the secret churches which can be found at http://www.radical.net/media/schurch/?cur_tab=series.
At this point, Will and I have mostly settled on a church we have been visiting for a few months now called New Branch. While it is still new to us, I'm so thankful that we have been there long enough that we now know several names to put with faces and we are mostly past introducing ourselves to people. It made celebrating our risen Savior that much sweeter that we were with people who not long ago were strangers, but are starting to become a church family to us. We also had the pleasure of spending the day with Will's cousin, Jenna, who just moved to another part of Atlanta, which means that we now have family in Georgia!
As far as other updates, Will is still enjoying his job and his job is still treating us well. Like I mentioned, we are mostly settled on New Branch and we have been visiting their small groups, trying to find a good fit for us. I have finished all major projects in the living room (more on that later). I have also started our own container garden despite my brown thumb so hopefully this summer, we might have some of our own produce (more on that later). Now I am in the midst of job searching. While it can be encouraging that Atlanta has a lot more jobs for graphic designers than Clemson did, its also a little discouraging that I haven't heard back from a single job that I've applied to. I rest in the fact that God will place me where He wants me.
That's all for now! If I need a break from job searching tomorrow I'll post about all of the living room projects that I've done!
I haven't given any real updates on our move to Atlanta, because there is a lot to update and I didn't know where to start. I figured I would start with one of my favorite parts of Atlanta. Coming from a small town (to say the least) where Will and I have both lived at for the better part of a decade, we had kind of run out of things to do. Even though we had only dated and have been married for two years in Clemson, we were already cycling through some previous date nights. It's important to us to go on at least one date a week to make sure that we are getting some good quality time together. The great thing about Atlanta is that there is so much to do that we don't have to cycle through previous date nights again unless we want to! Here are some of the ones we have been on since we have moved here:
Mini golfing in a pirate ship....the most difficult course I have ever been on
Medieval Times for Will's Birthday. Don't judge us. If we don't do the touristy stuff now, we never will.
The Botanical Garden's Christmas light event
So if you are familiar with my work, you probably know that I like bright, cheery and colorful photographs, and that I rarely post the black and white versions that I edit, but something about Christmas makes me love black and white photos. If you want to see some of the colored versions, I will be including them on facebook, just click the link at the top of my website.
This was a fun photoshoot, despite the cold front that came in causing Andrew to be less than his normal smiley self because I have known the Dentons for such a long time. Tara was one of the first people I met when I started coming to Crosspoint. We have done missions together through SummerLink and she has discipled me for over two years. I met Matt through serving to Media which he handed off to me when I joined G-Link. He was always the serious, thoughful one so I about died laughing several times seeing how goofy and silly he is with his son...I seriously could have done a post on just the funny faces that I caught during the photosession. Its been fun watching them date, get married and have a baby within the last few years.
Almost caught up! This post is short and sweet because its a Christmas mini session! I've enjoyed getting to know the Mintos this past year (though not as much as Will has enjoyed getting to know their dog, Bentley)
For me its as different story...Here's me freaking out when Bentley started running at me...Ha! Its always interesting taking pictures of dogs
Tomorrow is the last catch-up post so stay tuned!
This time Will and I are the photographers and the subjects! Here is our attempt at another tripod photoshoot. Its not easy getting good pictures when you have to push the button on the camera and then run and pose but we are getting better at it! These are pictures at our new home!
More Pictures tomorrow!
Its always fun to take pictures of friends! I was in the same cp group with Bailey and Jesse when they met years ago and then again in the same newlywed group. I've enjoyed seeing them grow into a couple as they are always fun to be around!
More Pictures to come tomorrow!
Just as a reminder, even though we are in Atlanta now, let me know if you are in Clemson and want a photoshoot
Because of moving and then having no internet for a month, I'm a little behind on posting some of the photography that I have done...to say the least. This session was of Jeff and Bonnie and their 9 month old Paige who was happy as could be to be outside and to be the center of attention. They are such a cute family and you can tell that little Paige is at such a fun age! I really enjoyed taking their pictures.
I wanted to announce that even though I will not be putting more resources into advertising in Clemson anymore since we have moved, I will still come back if you want to book me...just let me know!
Stay posted because I have more photo sessions coming tomorrow!
We are the Rogers. We have been married since August and are loving it! Will recently graduated with his PhD in Civil Engineering and I am currently an IT assistant by day and a photographer by night.
