Lace & Loyalty Giveaway!!

Well this is a fun day!!

Recently our friends over at the newly launched Lace and Loyalty wedding & marriage blog were posting pictures from their shop, including this amazing grey hoodie with gold foil writing that says "Wifey for Lifey." I instantly fell in love with it & left a note saying how awesome it was. And not more than a few days later a box was sitting on our front porch with my very own shirt as a gift from these amazing ladies! How INCREDIBLE is that??

What's even cooler is that they also agreed to give us one to be able to give away to one go our lucky readers! This makes my heart happy because so many of our giveaways are just for photographers, but this one can be for photographers AND our brides (past, present & future!!)

To enter, just leave a comment in the box below saying hi & we are going to announce the winner on Friday! And...GO!!

Happy Tuesday!

Featured: Well Wed National

Wow, this is definitely the week of features!! First Indhu & Greg in The Knot magazine, then Walk Through on Style Me Pretty, and now Kayla & Brendon's absolutely stunning Wadsworth Mansion wedding has been picked up by Well Wed as one of their "national real weddings" which means it was featured in not one, but all FIVE of their regional publications!! We are just so excited because Kayla & Brendon (and Kayla's mom!) worked so SO hard on putting together all of the amazing details of this day, it was definitely a labor of love for them. So that just makes me all the happier that so many different people are going to get to see it! Such awesome news to kick this weekend off right!

We are off for a productive weekend full of getting caught up from our trip out west, adjusting back to East Coast time, and gearing up for Erin & Christian's big day tomorrow!! Whatever you're doing this weekend, we hope it makes you happy and is full of the things you love!

Happy Friday!

Featured: Walk Through on Style Me Pretty

Well today is a fun day! We woke up to an email that our latest Walk Through a Wedding Workshop is being featured on the Style Me Pretty Little Black Book blog today! They put together a beautiful feature and it was so cool going back through those images and seeing all of the INCREDIBLE details that the amazing creatives who came together to make that workshop happen had created! These were some of the prettiest flowers that we have ever seen created by the amazing Carrie Wilcox! And every single detail of the day was planned flawlessly by superwoman & powerhouse event designer Miss Stacie Shea Events!

And that just got me all the more excited that they are BOTH are already on board to come out with us next month to Nantucket to put on our next Walk Through a Wedding w/ J&M workshop out there! And from what they've been telling me, they are going to go ALL OUT for this one! I seriously can't WAIT to see what they come up with!

We are down to just our LAST few spots for Nantucket, so if you've been thinking about joining us be sure to grab your seat before they're all gone! And to make it even easier, we have set up a payment plan of three payments, which means that you can reserve your spot today for just $400!! We also have a hotel block for affordable accommodations on the island, so now there isn't a good reason not to come! :) With wedding season in FULL swing, wouldn't it be amazing to give yourself the gift of a few days away to rest, re-center, and get re-inspired for the rest of the season?? I think SO! :) We would love to see you there!

**To lock in your seat to the August 20-21st Nantucket Walk Through just head over HERE!

J&M Photo Recipes

The idea came to us this past weekend while we were at WDS (aka The World Domination Summit).

We got to hear the amazing Jadah Sellner, the co-founder of Simple Green Smoothies, talk about using your platform to love and serve others first. She talked with incredible & powerful passion about serving people not numbers. And to focus on service, not stats. Because the truth is, you can have all the "followers" in the world, but if you aren't finding a way to serve then they're just that....numbers.

And the truth is, that is something that has been on our hearts for a long time & we've been trying to think of more & more ways to use the different platforms we have (this blog, Facebook, Instagram, in person!) to make them about something bigger than us. But it wasn't until we heard Jadah speak that this latest idea hit us like a ton of bricks with one big incredible DUH moment! :)

You see, Jadah & the Simple Green Smoothies team send daily recipes for healthy smoothies to their followers. It's that, well....simple. But it's turned into a really powerful thing. It turns out that one small daily improvement, that one small focused action....can turn into really BIG results over time. And they are helping every single person who follows them come closer to reaching their goals on a daily basis. Talk about a powerful use of platforms!

So we thought....how can we do the same thing with our community? And just like that, the idea of J&M Photo Recipes was born!

Basically, once a day during the week, we are going to be posting one of these recipes over on my Instagram page. Sometimes it will be about the lighting set up, sometimes the posing, sometimes the behind the scenes that went into it. And then we'll always try to include our settings on each image. We chose Instagram because we liked that we could a) update it daily b) everyone who follows along can be sure to see it (unlike Facebook) and c) we can hashtag it #jmphotorecipes so it creates a searchable archive of them that people can always go back through & find them all in one place. So that's it! The J&M Photo Recipes are born! If you would like to keep up with all of them, just be sure to head over HERE & follow along!

Happy Monday friends!
