exciting news!!!

Last March, as you might remember, I shot Brittney's bridals. We met up one evening after work, and the first thing she says to me as she hops in the car is, “So Jaren, would you ever go on a blind date?!?!”

Honestly, I had to admit, since having turned the big 3-0 last December, in retrospect, I realized that my life had taken a pretty drastic change of course over the last couple of years. It felt as if I’d crossed the threshold of Experience and Wisdom...reached a mature state of life-validation...i.e., finally made it to the point of “old-maid hood” where everyone had pretty much given up hope on the idea that their match-making efforts for me would ever turn out a success so they stopped trying to hook me up altogether! Understandably, then, when Britt posed the question, my first response was almost, “What’s a blind date?!?” Instead, I rephrased the question: “You have someone you want to set me up with?!?”

Well, more on that story later (Ahem, Dawn! ;) because I have some exciting news to share about Brittney Long Designs!!!! ;)

A couple months ago, Brittney started up her business out of her passion for design and creativity. She designs wedding, baby and graduation announcements, party invitations, business cards, page layouts and probably just about anything else you might need drawn up! I love what she did with this image from her and Jake's "We Did" shoot...

And with a wave of Britt's magic...voila!

Isn't she great!!! I LOVE it!

Okay, so now, if you have a favorite image or images from a previous shoot that you would like Brittney to use to design an announcement, card, etc., and you did not purchase the session CD, contact me as soon as possible because I'm going to be offering these images for only $10 per digital file! (Normally they are $35 a file!!!) Woot, woot! (as Jamie says!) Love new product and vendor contacts...especially when they are dear friends! Congratulations again Britt!! Cheers!

mychal ♥'s hayley ~the wedding

These are LONG over due. Jamie and I shot Hayley and Mychal's wedding back in MAY! Good...Times. Not only are Hayley and Mychal a sweet and gorgeous couple, they are also great friends, so it was a lot of fun to get to celebrate their special day with them...

Hayley, I LOVE you!!! XOXO!

Chillin at the Shiny Lime...more good times!

Okay and so here's my little tribute...
At almost every wedding, Jamie is with the Bride shooting her preparations and details while I hang with the Groom and his guys. (And I'm not complaining ;) I seriously love not knowing how to tie a tie or pin on a boutonniere because watching hot guys in suits trying to figure these things out is hillarious! Luckily for Mychal, his best man knew the trick and tried his hardest to help the other two out!

Alas, he reverts to having to tie the ties for them!
haley21

So they get the tie thing down...Niiiiiice...
haley10

(love it!)

Next comes to figuring out what to do with the "flowery sh**" (!)
haley11

Have I mentioned Good Times?!

Now on with the show...
I think one of the highlights of Hayley and Mychal's day was the "First Sight." This is something Jamie and I encourage our couples to do...it's totally mod, non-traditional and AWESOME because it allows for the intimate moment of the Bride and Groom's first sight of each other to be captured entirely and sincerely as just the two of them respond to seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day without the stress of family and friends looking on. It's such a sweet, sentimental, truly special moment...

H&M got married down at Gaston's on the White River, and one of the special features was an AIR SHOW!!! OMG, planes taking off and swooping down with their excitingly loud va-room...I personally thought the effect was pretty intense!
