Iā€™m Stephanie Messick, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Warrenton, VA. Whether Iā€™m by the mountains in Virginia or the ocean on the Florida Gulf Coast, my soul feels right 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!

I think this is the first “Coffee Talk Mondays” post actually featured on a Monday instead of a Tuesday from the past month. Haha! I’m at Panera in Tennessee on my drive down to Florida as I type this blog post. šŸ™‚ I decided to take a break halfway through my trip to get Ollie groomed at Petco while I got some computer work done. It worked out perfectly to stop now since Alex and I are heading out of town for almost two weeks for our honeymoon! So I’m taking care of business so today isn’t just spent driving for 14 straight hours. šŸ™‚ Check out this past week’s hustle below!!

OUT OF THE OFFICE UNTIL OCTOBER 13th!!!

I cannot believe that Alex and I are heading out tomorrow to start our adventure across the world to THAILAND!!!! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ I am so so soooo excited to spend quality time with my hubby after a crazy busy time! We will be enjoying the city, elephants, rock climbing, beach, mango EVERYTHING, Thai food, and so much more!!! I cannot wait for us to explore their culture. Be sure to see our adventures on my Instagram at @stephaniemessickphoto!!! I will be back in the office on October 13th to start catching up with emails. I appreciate your patience in the meantime. šŸ™‚ IT’S HONEYMOON “THAI”-ME!!!!!!! (See what I did there? šŸ˜‰ Hehe!

ALL THE FALL FEELS!!!!

Despite Virginia still dealing with 90-degree weather, fall is definitely in full swing! Just this past week, I got to celebrate two engagements, one maternity, and two weddings in six days! WHEW! Guys, it was a BUSY week. I hustled fiercely and HARD. I just delivered all edited images from the sessions and just surprised my two wedding clients from this past weekend with close to 200 edited images each as a little preview! šŸ™‚ I didn’t want to take off to Thailand and for them to wait weeks before seeing their beautiful images!! Gah! I’m excited to share them with YOU, but I’ll make you wait. šŸ˜‰ HA!

IT MIGHT BE TIME TO WHITEN MY TEETH? šŸ˜‰

I walked downstairs at my parent’s house yesterday after photographing a doubleheader, and the first thing I said was that it was going to be a day filled with lots of COFFEE. Well, funny enough, yesterday was National Coffee Day! šŸ™‚ So I lived up to its name!! Haha! Also, as I was making my way through southern Virginia this morning, Ollie and I made a pit stop to surprise my bestie at work with some Starbucks. šŸ™‚ Although, Ollie looked ready to claim it as his own. Haha!

THE BITTER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

NADAAA!!!

I don’t really have any “Espresso Moments” from this past week except for the amount of editing I pressured myself to get through. But I can pat myself on the back for getting it DONE!! The hustling was worth it so Alex and I can enjoy a relaxing vacation without rushing back to catch up with work. šŸ™‚ It’s VACATION TIME!!!!!
