I'm not a dude, obviously (hopefully obviously!?), so I don't really have any cause to visit barbershops. Unless, of course, that barbershop happens to be The Standard Barbershop in Fairfax, Virginia, where my sister is the receptionist/manager and they (the good staff of The Standard) need portraits and photos for their website. From my morning spent at the Standard, I can happily and enthusiastically recommend to my gentlemen friends and readers to frequent the Standard if you're in need of a haircut, beard trim, or dope-ass fade. Make sure to say hi to my sister and Sega, the family/shop dog.
I've been in five states in two weeks, have shot two weddings, flown on two planes, and have driven over twelve hours - mama is TIRED. Photos, updates, and hugs coming soon, but right now I'm going to crawl into bed and catch up on my stories on Hulu. Good night and have an awesome Monday!
I love weddings. I also love shooting them, though I would not consider myself a proper wedding photographer. The handful of weddings I've photographed have been for close friends, and smaller or destination weddings at that. Monica and Russell's wedding, at the gorgeous Missouri Botanical Garden back in 2015, was one of my first weddings. There was a hot air balloon festival that day, a Chihuly exhibit at the gardens, and three other weddings in the near vicinity.
I attended seven weddings in 2015, shot one of them, and was in two of them. I figured if I'm slowly (but surely!) going to post wedding photos, then I might as well start from the very beginning.
