Many, many of my brides read awesome blogs like Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, etc. for great tips and insight as to what’s trending right now with weddings. I, too, am an admirer of all things wedding – and often scroll through the pages of these incredibly inspirational blogs. There have been so many times I’ve thought to myself, “Man, I really want to submit something, but what if I’m not good enough?”
A big goal for me this year was to quit doubting myself so much and to just put it out there. To send the beautiful weddings I’m blessed to photograph to wedding blogs and if they say no, then to accept that that is okay. Back in early March, I sent Style Me Pretty Carly and David’s wedding. I sent it on a Friday and wasn’t sure what they would say. Early the following week, I heard back that it was a YES! – they were going to feature the wedding.
SMP recently started a Texas edition where they publish amazing Texas photographers, venues, etc. This is where their wedding was featured on May 2nd. I am beside myself that they said yes. It feels a bit weird telling you guys this because I don’t at all want to ever come across as bragging. I’m honestly just in complete awe. I feel like a little kid that’s just been let loose in a candy shop – wide-eyed and gazing at all the options.
I could hug the necks of the ladies over at SMP for their kindness, lovely emails, and for saying yes to this wedding. Thank you so much for saying yes!
If you care to check it out, here’s the feature...with a few words from Carly about their wedding.
