Happy Snow Day!

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!

Happy snow day!!! 🙂 Especially to those who are out of school, both kids and staff members. Waking up to snow on a Monday made me want to stay in bed. I know I’m not the only one who felt this way. 😉 I have no excuse to not work today since my office is only steps away from my bedroom. Haha!

I don’t typically go to bridal shows, but when you’re asked to be a preferred vendor at your favorite venue, you cannot say no. 😉 It was fun hanging out with friendors yesterday. 🙂 Although once I got home, I was exhausted and enjoyed a rare lazy Sunday evening by ordering in pizza and binge watched How I Met Your Mother. Haha!

Yesterday was especially needed after losing one of the sweetest grandfathers I had the honor of knowing for about 15 years. One of my best friends lost her grandfather this past week and it was rough because it was a battle he was fighting for over a year. Heaven gained an angel, for sure. He had a heart of pure gold and always walked around with a smile on his face. He is already missed by many, but he was surrounded by some of the most loving people on this earth. Saturday was a beautiful celebration of his life and we know that he was there in spirit, happy to see his family together.

As you know from reading my 2017 goals, I wanted to redesign my bridal magazine. Well, I finished it and it’s off to print! Wahoo! It was a few years ago when I initially created the magazine, but gosh, it was about time I updated it with recent photos, simplified the design and reedit the content. Cannot wait to have these new magazines in my hand to send out to my 2017 brides!! 🙂
