I'm sitting down... whew... it's been a weekend.
Friday had me glued to the TV... Bruce Jenner interview.
Anyone else stuck to the screen to see it all?
I was so intrigued by it all. I will say, I still don't completely understand it, but I'm happy that Bruce can live the life that he feels like he needs to live. And in the end, I know when my life is over & I stand before God - He's not going to ask me one thing about Bruce Jenner :) Live your life.. let others live theirs. That's how I feel about most people & the choices they make.
Saturday had me up & at 'em early. Mainly to see the beginning of the Ky Derby Marathon starting.
I had registered last year without giving it any thought that I had something on my calendar already. Oops! But in the end, I was glad I missed this race. It was cold & rainy. I probably would have decided to skip it anyways.
I had my car packed up with all my camera goodies & I was out & at 'em by 8:30 ...
let the fun begin.
A wedding day is so crazy, busy, hectic... this one was no exception.
With rain falling most of the day & small issues popping up - like a best man being late, a missing dress, music issues - it all reminds me that as a wedding photographer, you have to be flexible, but you still have to get it all the work done.
It's an interesting gig. I always say you have no idea the pressure & work that is involved in wedding photography unless you get to work behind the scenes of it yourself. It's an adventure, that's for sure.
But it all came together... wonderfully.

With the rain, we could NOT have been in a better church. They had a beautiful foyer with gorgeous lighting & gorgeous seating areas... they had a covered drive up area for cars that kept people dry. And after the wedding, the rain stopped long enough for us to take the bride & groom out for some of my most favorite bridal pictures ever.
Even at the end, when Chasity & I were leaving, the rain held off... & as soon as we got in the car, pulled out of the parking lot - the heavens BURST! I mean torrential downpours.... I just had to high five God in my car at how well He takes care of us during a day!
Sunday, I was more then happy to sleep in. I think I got up around 9:30. YAWN!
I headed to Merge & got to hang out with the kiddos - talks of the new Avengers movie opening this weekend being the main topic.
After church was out, I had a 10K to do.
Ricky kept telling me not to do it because my foot was so sore from the day before.
My foot has something going on with it... I went to the podiatrist about it years ago & he told me that I have an area in my foot where the bone shifts causing this pain. It's extreme. Nothing can be done about it. It will actually shift back in place & no pain at all... but when it slides out. Oh mercy. That's how it had been after the wedding.
But I was determined. If anything, to prove something to myself.
So I grab my gear & off I go....
Add another medal to the collection!
Sunday night, I was just ready to finally sit & start editing pictures.... where I'll be most of the week now. It felt good to just sit for a bit. Ricky even went out & picked up some pizza so I didn't have to cook or go out for dinner.
& now, we're back to Monday... time to start a fresh new week.
Let's make it a good one!
What was the best thing about your weekend?
