At last weekend's wedding, the groom got "ICED" at least 4 times. (Yes, he's still alive.) But I learned that "icing" is an inside joke of theirs... where a bottle of Smirnoff Ice is hidden someplace and must be chugged upon discovery.
And while some of you are gasping + clutching your pearls, I know there are others who are already trying to figure out how to do this for themselves. Ha!
That's the beauty of weddings... it gets to be whatever YOU want it to be. So don't forget to have FUN along the way.
Head on over to my blog where I'm sharing my "rules" on how to have a fabulous wedding day (link in profile).
Father/Daughter dance surrounded by mountains, friends & family (and a small army of mosquitos, I'll be honest). I'm so thankful Becky & Dave were willing to move the dance floor outside for a little while before we were all eaten alive to get photos like this!
When the father of the bride whips out his cellphone halfway down the aisle + takes a selfie... yeah... THESE are MY kind of people!!!
Here are my rules for a fabulous wedding day (and a great LIFE, too):
1. Always be yourselves.
2. Celebrate however YOU want.
3. Create new traditions.
4. Have FUN.
5. Surround yourself with JOY.
6. And remember... even though there's a timeline in place, this is YOUR day. Things will happen, and not always as planned. But that's okay. Because tons of other insanely incredible non-planned moments will occur. So breathe it all in. Take a few heartbeats to realize this is a celebration of your love, and notice you're surrounded by the best of the best to help cheer you on in your journey. So... smile till your cheeks hurt. Dance barefoot. Hug everyone in arm's reach. Laugh till your sides hurt. And feel the LOVE.
I can't even contain myself right now!! Today is launch day!! I am freaking out because today I get to share my new website designed by the amazing @leslievegadesign www.gvhphotographie.com This website was a labor of love that both myself and Leslie poured our hearts into! As a photographer, the decision to rebrand is always a scary (yet exciting one), but one that I leapt into wholeheartedly! This website represents my heartbeat and my WHY. Please check it out, take a look around, enjoy the new look, and if you like what you see, let's connect! ❤️🍾🙌🏻 💍🎉🎊
I woke up to the sound of pouring rain last night. So I woke up my husband and we ran outside to dance in it. Within minutes we were soaked head to foot. And with a goodnight kiss we ran back inside to get warm.
👆🏼that's my guy. The one who makes my heart beat fast. Who gives unpredictable kisses and eats disgusting mayo banana sandwiches. @tessa.shannon captured our playful love + I'm so thankful for these moments!!!
Not enough words to describe the morning I spent with these two + their surprise proposal, so I'll just say this: it was one of the most special things I have ever been a part of + love is the best damn thing we've got in this world ✨ #lovelessordinary
If you like to travel, adventure, snuggle your loved one & live in the back of your truck, I want to be your friend!! 🙌🏻 These two cuties have been on the road for months, and are the coolest ever! Seriously loved hearing their stories & adventures ✨ Check them out yall!! @allinthebedofatruck + @indybrandclothing 🖤
So excited to share this ring shot and back story on this amazing duo. His ring, not only looks awesome with wood grain detail, but also has a special message and wedding date engraved on the inside. Her ring is a custom made from both her great grandmother's diamond rings. #weddingring#cleelumweddingphotographer#haileyhabermanphotography
This may be one of my favorite views EVER! It was such a dream to shoot here! Washington is so gorgeous. Thanks to all the wonderful vendors who made this shoot happen including the talented @sweetcarolinestyles and @courtneykroymannflowers 💕Also be sure to check out the @the_mrs_box Insta story today the owner and creator featured one of my photos in a inspiration palette! Eeek!
The groom actually lost his wedding ring right before this photo! I asked if he could place it next to his brides and he realized he had dropped it at some point in the shoot😳 Fortunately, we were able to find it in the sage brush near his truck in a matter of seconds and we were back on the shoot!
Sitting here tonight on this incredibly stormy summer night and craving fall today. Even though the other day I was saying I'm missing summer by always working in my office. Am I crazy?! What is your favourite season? #wildlyromantic
Вообще я люблю поговорить и даже подискутировать, выражая своё мнение)
Но вот написать пост, для меня не лёгкое занятие😄 надо ведь лаконично и кратко))
Вобщем в субботу была чудесная съёмка!
Но вот погода🤦🏼♀️😩 выехали в жуткую грозу⚡️, и всю дорогу верили, что выйдет солнце)
Так в общем-то и получилось! ☀️🙏🏻
Вот только дороги размыло, грязи по колено... и всёёё мооокрое 😬
Кое-как доехали, потом кое-как прошли,
кое-как оделись 😄
Конечно это нам не помешало сделать волшебные, искрение кадры 😍
Скоро всё всё покажу 💛😏
I love our Pioneer Day holiday here in Utah!! We have such a rich heritage of courage, faith, and perseverance. I can't imagine what it must have been like for the pioneers to walk that far in all weather conditions, facing starvation and death all along the way. And I am grateful for them and their example and what they were able to create here for us.
HAPPY MONDAY!! 😃
