I feel like I should just move my bed into my studio. I’m not even trying to be funny. I am in my studio every single day by 8:30AM and if I remember to eat lunch I run home to grab something then come right back until I have to leave for my shoot. I am shooting every single day too. Its taking me all I have to go home after my shoot instead of right back to my studio. My editing list is just NEVER ending. For every shoot I cross off one gets added. BUT honestly my clients make my job easy and I don’t mind looking at their pretty faces all day long!!
HELLO HELLO!!! OK so yesterday was my Birthday and everyone keeps asking me what I did. I did exactly what any other photographer would do in October on their birthday. I edited all day, shot all evening, and then binge ate Chineese food while watching Schitt$ Creek episodes. If you haven’t ever seen Schitt$ Creek, it is a Netflix show that is the best show I have EVER seen in my life. OK OK OK I tend to be dramatic, but it literally might be my favorite show ever. I accidently finished season three last night and I am SO sad because I don’t know what I am going to do now. The final episode was AMAZING and literally melted my heart in so many ways. So, if you have Netflix and haven’t seen Schitt$ Creek SHAME ON YOU …. Go watch it!
Carolyn and Dave… Oh man do I love Carolyn and Dave. These two are AMAZING. I am telling you not many brides would handled the weather on their wedding like Carolyn did. All week leading up to their wedding they kept talking about how bad the weather was going to be. Irma was making her way here and there was no stopping her. Carolyn emailed me saying “Im not worried, it is what it is and we will deal with whatever comes our way”. Really? So many brides (I would too probably) would panic and obsess over it. Their wedding came and so did Irma. Not only did it rain, but the wind was BLOWING. Every single time the rain stopped we would try to run out to the deck of the Country Club to take photos, and as soon as we got out there it would DUMP rain on us. While we photographed family and the wedding party under the carport the rain kept coming and so did the wind. So much so that my flash kept tipping over. BUT as soon as it came time to photograph Carolyn and Dave the rain literally stopped. It went from POURING RAIN to nothing. HOW?!?!? It let up for like ten minutes. We ran outside and as soon as we started walking back inside it started up again. I honestly think its because of Carolyn and Daves amazing outlook that they had this amazing luck that the two of them were able to get some outdoor photos. You guys were amazing. A HUUUUUUUGE thanks to Alisha Norden for second shooting with me. Had a blast with you by my side!!!
I feel like I’m a blogging machine lately! Do you kind of love it? I do. I get so excited sharing new work with you guys. Don’t stress because there is plenty more where this came from. I literally have SO many sessions in the que that need to be edited. This time of year is just insane. Definitely keeps me on my toes for sure. I have this weekend off, so Eric, some friends and I are headed up North to get away and relax. I am SUPER excited. I might even leave my camera at home, but I do need to start photographing personal stuff more. If you don’t follow me on Instagram you totally should because you can see my exciting weekend off in my stories! My Instagram name is @mollyannesphotos.
Meet Sarah and Mike. I was SO excited about this session! All of you who know me know that I love Newport, beaches, prosecco and boats. SO when their session involved all four I nearly died. Sarah had emailed me asking if I was willing to do their session on a sunset cruise. I loved the idea but was worried that it would be tricky if there were a ton of other people on the boat. When I brought this to her attention she said “oh no I would charter our own boat”. YES… YES THAT IS A VERY GOOD IDEA AND I WOULD LOVE IT! Right away I was like “this girl is totally a girl after my own heart we could be BFF’s”. We had the session scheduled for a Wednesday, but it was when stupid Jose (the hurricane) was in town so we had to cancel the session. Because fall is SO crazy busy for me the only time I could get them in was on a Sunday. Typically I leave Sundays for family days (especially after a double header that I had that weekend), but I asked if Eric could come along and help hold my lenses and stuff. Whenever I shoot on a boat I always bring someone to hold my lenses, and spot me if I am hanging off the side of the boat (no joke). So the four of us met at Castle Hill for a few photos then walked in Newport to the boat where we set sail. Not really a sail, but this boat was my dream. I loved EVERYTHING about it. I loved my couple on the boat, I loved the captains, I love the meat and cheese board, I loved the prosecco, and I love the actual boat. Once we set sail I had Captain Greg steer us into the light and Eric spot me while I stood on the roof of this boat. It was amazing. If you saw my Instagram story you would have seen that I was literally standing on a roof of the boat. When wakes from other boats came I had to lay low so I wouldn’t fall off. It was so crazy. I can honestly say my night with Sarah, Mike, Eric, and the Captains was one of my favorites of the summer. It was definitely one of my favorite sessions ever and these two totally upped the game for all future engagement sessions. Guys, I am SO SO SO excited for your wedding next year. I miss you both already! XOXO
