Weekend Recap

I’m Stephanie, a wedding + lifestyle photographer based in Colorado Springs, Colorado and Warrenton, Virginia. Whether I’m by the mountains of Colorado or Virginia, my soul feels at home, surrounded by rural living and the raw beauty of nature. I genuinely love what I do, and feel so passionate to share the enthusiasm and joy of these celebrations with you!

This week is going to be a very busy week with traveling! One day I’m in VA Beach to Hot Springs, VA to downtown Alexandria. So I’m on a mission to stay as on top of things as I can. To ensure that I don’t overdo myself, I have taken some time this Thursday/Friday to make sure I’m all caught up before Will & Caitlyn’s wedding day! 🙂 It’s personally important to me that I meet my weekly goals so I walk into my office Monday morning with a clean slate and not carry the previous week “to dos”. Unfortunately, I did not meet my last week “to dos” and have to carry it into today. I’ll give myself the exception since I took off Thursday for my Birthday. 😉

This weekend was amazing! I was SO incredibly honored to photograph one of my college roommates wedding on Saturday and could not be more happy for her!!! Love you both and cannot wait to share these precious memories on the blog on Wednesday of her big day! After running around all day Saturday, I was relieved to have Sunday off and not have anything on my plate. So Kyle and I decided to do some chores around the house and then treated ourselves on the front porch with some champagne/cheese while watching the storm roll in. Then of course topped it off with a new episode of Game of Thrones and homemade chili! Yummm! Would you believe it if I told you that Kyle is an amazing chef?! Score!

Today started my new workout plan to get in shape for next months beach trip. Wish me luck! I sat down yesterday developing a solid training week by week so I’m not wasting time at the gym. So today marked the first day and I’m already sore! Let’s see what the end of the week brings … Hopefully I’ll survive this workout routine! 😉

Here are some previews of what is to come this week on the blog!
