Note to self: do not plan two photo shoots in three days…you are not that good. Obviously, I took this all in stride and rose to the challenge. It’s not like I developed an ulcer and cried into a glass of wine every night…no, nothing like that.
Another note to self: Buy more wine.
Our latest shoot at the brand spankin’ new Barn on Wild Rose Prairie is about as quaint and country as it gets. You’ll wanna bake a pie, have a picnic and start saying “darlin!” We’re talkin’ rolling hills for days, a beautiful 50 year old barn, and more rustic charm than you can shake a stick at! Best part about the shoot? When a road crew stopped me within a mile of the venue and said I would have to wait until they finished up (like I have time for that!). I looked this poor young guy straight in the eye and declared, “I have a photo shoot to do for a national wedding blog”! This sweet kid actually gets on his radio and says they need to let me through because, “it’s not everyday someone is doing a photo shoot for a national wedding blog.” Damn straight!
Grab yourself a jar of sweet tea and settle in for some darn good photography by David of AiP Creative Photography and be sure to check out the bottom of the post for a complete list of vendors involved in this shoot (you may want to just save yourself some time and book the whole lot of ’em now for your perfect country wedding!)
Just for kicks here’s a list of all the southern words and phrases I wasn’t able to find a place for in this post….
I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck
