Today’s post is for all my fellow vendors! We’ve been at this wedding season for a few months now, and I’m sure we have all become too familiar with the dreaded and inevitable next day wedding vendor “hangover.” Now, before we get too far into this post I need to clarify something: A wedding vendor hangover is NOT a result of drinking too much while on the job! It’s not even a result of drinking!! I have never and will never drink at a wedding that I am working!! OK… now that we are all on the same page, let’s chat about what a wedding vendor hangover really is!

Ahh I am so excited to share this FUN friend session with you today! As many of you know, I also teach barre for a company called FlyWheel Sports! A few months ago, we had a fun themed pulse with a giveaway, prosecco and all of the pop music that I could squeeze into a 45 minute chunk of time. The giveaway? A 30 minute session on the steps of our nation’s Capitol! Sweet Anna was in class that day, and she ended up winning the session!

I looked at my calendar this week and realized that, as of this Saturday, I have officially called Washington, DC home for TWO years now! WOW time flies! Last year, I shared a letter to myself. I shared the words that I would have told the girl getting off the plane, fresh out of college with a dream and not a whole lot of plans. I reread this post this week, and I cried like a baby. It was a bit embarrassing… thankfully, I was alone in my apartment. Goodness… how so many things have changed and how so many things have stayed exactly the same.

Ok… full disclosure: I had the hardest time coming up with the words for this blog post! I also totally edited & blogged this session through teary eyes. Anna and Darian are two of my sweet friends from college, and y’all…. THEY’RE GETTING MARRIED! (And I am obviously WAY too emotional about it all!) If you’ve spent any time around here, you may be familiar with my fellow photog friend, Savannah of Savannah Smith Photography! I met Anna & Savannah around the same time and we all became pretty close, so it was only natural that we decided to join forces to photograph A&D’s wedding!

Oh I need to give a HUGE shoutout to these two for being SO flexible! I think we had to reschedule their session three times because of the RAIN! (The rain has been nonstop in the DMV, y’all!). When we were finally able to get together for their session, we had so much fun! We FINALLY saw some sun and spent the morning exploring the gorgeous Downs Park.
