Although the weather has taken it’s time warming up, I can definitely tell that Spring is in the air! Sunnier, balmier days are ahead for sure. This weekend was a good indication of that…we had our first truly “busy” weekend of wedding season and it was such a great way to start out a new season! It always feels good to start fresh, doesn’t it?
Saturday morning John and I woke up early and headed out to help photograph the Runaway Brides 5K, a race organized by my friend Stephanie for charity! I love running and weddings so this was right up my alley. I was thrilled it worked out for us to be a part of it. We were set up to photograph and volunteer at the obstacle course station, which I thought was so fitting since I’m actually preparing for my second Spartan Race this upcoming weekend! After spending weeks and weeks training for my own race it was fun to help coach the girls through the army crawl portion of the race!!
All in all, I thought the 5K was such a great event!! Kudos to Stephanie for organizing it all!
After the 5k we photographed our first wedding of the year at Airlie. I loved shooting there last year, so I knew that Bekah and Chris’ wedding would be so beautiful and it didn’t disappoint! Though the weather was really sketchy on Friday, we lucked out with a gorgeous Spring day on Saturday…can’t complain about that! We had such a great time with Bekah and Chris and their friends and family and I’m excited to share more soon!
Sunday morning I went to my last big training before my above-mentioned Spartan Race. The rest of my week will be focused on active recovery and taking care of my body so it’s ready to conquer all of the obstacles ahead of me! After training, I photographed a friend and fellow Spartan’s family! I don’t often have time to dedicate to family sessions, but I love getting to do them when I can! Especially for friends!
As for our Monday, John and I are going to be traveling separately over the next couple weeks, so we’re spending the day together since we will be apart for so long (the longest we’ve ever been apart!!). I know I’m going to miss him this next 12 days we’re apart (but who’s counting?) so I’m trying to squeeze out every ounce of QT with him that I can. I’ll reply to my emails besides anything urgent tomorrow! I hope you all have a great Monday!!
