When your friend says, “I bought your girls dresses, we’re taking pictures,” you don’t complain. You just show up!
So a few month's ago, I bought 2 dresses for Addy and Scar. I knew they were both growing up so fast, so I messaged their mother Kimberly and asked "hey, what sizes do your girls wear for dresses?" Kimberly responded back with their sizes and I told her "Fantastic, I bought them dresses, we are doing a shoot when it gets warm enough. Well, here we are, and it's warm enough, and we did a shoot with the dresses!
With this warm weather, I can't help but to think of the wedding reception I did last summer. The couple was literally a dream to work with. I learned so many things just from their reception that I use it still, especially with large families! Makelle and Tyler are literally the dream couple. They obviously care about each other and they are each other's best friend. They're both such goof balls and awkward (in a good way!). This was a reception that showed the bond between the families there, and it was so amazing. I loved seeing everyone reuniting and just showing their love for each other. It was a reception for the books, and when I get married, I really hope mine turns out just as amazing as theirs!
So a lot of photographers have a lot of gear, and I'm no different. You're probably wondering what do I have, well let's see what I have!

2.) Speed Flash $40
3. &4.) SD Cards $27 and $34
5.) 50mm 1.8 lens $125
6.) 35mm off brand lens $90
7.) 18-55mm kit lens
8.) 70-300mm lens
9.) Canon Rebel T6 $375
10.) Canon 6D $800

I have been fortunate to be gifted with some of my gear (the ones with no price), or getting some things on sale (Like the 6D, which is still retailing for $900+). My gear is also expanding, and improving as my skills improve and I grow as a photographer. Without my gear, some of my photos would not be possible with editing alone.
Meet Myshella and Devon. The two got married on June 19th, 2017. Their relationship is based off of their friendship, and it's obvious they are best friends. They love each other, support each other, care for each other, and most importantly, they are truly best friend. They met 4 years ago, and since then their lives have changed forever. These two have the relationship you aspire to have in the future. You can feel their love with each other and how much they care about each other. I wish them many years of happiness and beyond that.
