Lily Photo Shoot

My blog has been a little sporadic the past two weeks. It's funny because usually when I get really busy, that's when I blog the most because I have so much content I want to share with everyone. These past two weeks have been the opposite. I've worked a wedding every weekend for the past five weekends, will be attending a friend's wedding in Maine this weekend, and then coming home for three more weddings to shoot in a row. Needless to say, Fall is definitely the craziest time of year for me! 

It's always my goal to have one wedding edited before I shoot the next one, so there have been a lot of afternoons of podcast listening, tea drinking, and editing marathoning the past few weeks. And getting those weddings to my couples ASAP is priority #1 all week long. Thus, the blog has taken a little bit of a backseat. Just a little bit!

So you may be wondering why Lily's face greeted you at the top of this post today. But you shouldn't be, because my philosophy is always "when in doubt, share a photo of Lily." I am a member of Canon's Professional Services organization, which offers a lot of benefits to photographers like gear cleaning and adjusting. But one of their other services which I find really cool is that you can borrow any lenses you want from them for a week to test them out and see how you like them. It's a nice perk. So a few weeks ago I borrowed the 85mm 1.2L which is kind of a dream lens for me. It's one of those pieces of equipment that I do not NEED. I have everything I need now. But in a money-less world, I would buy it and adore it as it deserves.

Lily was kind enough to model for me while I played around with this lens. Ignore her dirty face. I probably should have given her a bath before the photo shoot, but time was of the essence in returning the lens to Canon! (It turned out that they needed the lens BACK within a week, which means you have to ship it pretty quickly after you receive it to get it back to Canon in time. Ah, well, you can never complain about free.

Check in soon for a gorrrrrrrrrgeous... I mean SUPER gorgeous Southern wedding. It's going to knock your socks off.
