Wedding Season

My favorite time of year, when everything FINALLY starts to thaw out, flowers begin blooming again and echoes of "I do" fill the air. With wedding season just around the corner I have been trying to once again prepare myself for the chaos. It's easy to get used to a lax schedule after the rush of the Holidays calms down and I get to enjoy my spare time a little more than usual during the "slow" season. (January through March) Last year in April and May I was shooting at least 4 to 5 times a week and during June, July and August, I found myself shooting just about every day and often had more than one shoot a day. While I do love the work and staying busy, I'm hoping this year I'll give myself a bit of a breather and schedule my shoots with a little more time in between, if of course, the job and the season allows for it. I just got done editing some bridals I shot about a week ago and thought I'd share some of them with everyone.

Meet Linda and Clay, a very outgoing couple that I have had a lot of fun photographing. They will be exchanging vows this Friday at the Lion House which will kick off what I hope to be another successful and enjoyable wedding season!

Starting my Blog

I finally decided to get a blog started to keep everyone updated on my latest photo shoots, specials, events and to share my experiences with you.

While I will admit, I may not be the most eloquent blogger on the world wide web, I have been told I can take a pretty good picture, so I will start by sharing some photos of one of the latest weddings I did. This wedding gave my husband and me the privilege of traveling to sunny southern California where I shot everywhere from San Diego to Orange County. My Clients were Maurice and Tasha Cureton, who got married in the San Diego LDS temple, took family photos at the beautiful La Jolla Cove, had a ring ceremony in front of the cliffs at Crescent Bay Beach in Laguna, and celebrated the whole occasion at a reception in Corona. So, 4 locations, 2 days and over 1200 photos later, here's a peak at what I captured.

If you'd like to see more of this Destination Wedding and many others, go to my website, StacyMariePhotography.com, click on WEDDINGS and under the PORTFOLIO tab, you will see DESTINATION WEDDINGS.
If you or someone you know is having a Destination Wedding, please contact me about my DW prices.

Thanks Maurice and Tasha for an amazing weekend and allowing me to capture such a beautiful occasion!
