preparation overload

So the reality is getting more and more real that I will be shooting my very first wedding in 2 months for these guys....

Cute couple right? I Love my new camera, however it has been a big pain int he butt learning to use it... thank heavens for my digital imaging teacher at UVU who has been so so helpful and has spent tons of after class time explaining things to me. The engagement shoot well pretty well. I had a little over exposure problem however I shot them in raw format so I was able to fix most of them where you don't even notice.

I made their announcements which are now being prepared to be mailed this week.

I will take Kelsey's bridal pictures when the spring decides to come and the wedding is April 29th in Sacramento CA.

Until then, I am left preparing. I have spent countless hours already preparing, bought books, watched videos.... everything I can do to make me feel more confidant and prepared for this. I love that this is happening for me because it forced me to learn so much about my camera and wedding techniques. :)

Photography is fun!

Valentines Day

Today is Valentines day for most..... well not really for me. I am at school all day till 5 and Brett is at work till 4 and then off to school until around 10 tonight. So we did our valentines celebration on Saturday night. It was quite romantic. We went to see a movie during the day- we saw Just Go With It. It was really funny and cute. Then we came home and started cooking.

The steak was SO good. I got the recipe for the Garlic Cheddar Biscuits that they serve at Red Lobster and they turned out great. I had never made a homemade cheesecake before and it turned out super good as well.... no disasters in the kitchen (surprisingly) :)

We ate it in candlelight with Martinellis and made romantic toasts to each other with our wine glasses. It was fun (and sappy)

Happy Valentines to everyone I love! I hope you all have a great day and no matter if you have a valentine or not, I love you!!

School is a little different this semester than last semester. I am much more involved in the digital classes... Digital Media, Digital Imaging, & Digital Prepress. They have been so much fun and I am loving what I am doing. I am also taking a 3d design class because it is required. Its ok but I would rather be playing on my computer in Photoshop or In Design. :)

Here are a few things I have done for assignments so far...
