Five Tips For Shooting Your First Wedding

5 Tips for Shooting Your First Wedding from Madison at Wetherills Say I Do
Hello dearest Crafty Wife readers! I'm so pumped to be here with y'all today! This month, I had the incredible opportunity to shoot my first two weddings! Crazy enough they were back to back weekends but in hind sight I'm glad they were because I picked up so much from the first wedding and was able to apply it right away! Both of these were friends who asked me to shoot their weddings. The great thing about this was that I was already comfortable around the couples AND that they knew Continue reading [...]

Adorable Customizable Dresses (eShakti review)

eShakti Dress Review from Crafty Wife: Customizable Dresses for Women's Fashion
{this post contains a free product I received from eShakti.  However, all thoughts and opinions are my own} Shopping blues.  I have them all the time.  Being so petite can pose challenges in department stores, there is always something I fall in love with that just doesn't fit right.  Or I end up wishing there were sleeves on a cute tank top or a higher neckline on a low-cut shirt.  And lets not even talk about pants and skirts.  They are a nightmare.  Always Continue reading [...]

Easy Special Effects: Creative Blur

A Beginner's Guide to Special Effects : Learn how to use your DSLR to capture unique floral photographs
One of my favorite things about Photography is that I am constantly learning.  Every time I pick up a book, magazine, or even my camera I am always learning a new technique that will make my photography even better. Last month I was in Barnes and Noble and I picked up the magazine, Practical Photography.  I fell in love with all of the helpful tutorials and information in the magazine, and will definitely be going back to pick up the August issue at some point.  One thing I really loved was Continue reading [...]

Community Brew Vol. 3 & a Giveaway

Choosing to be Happy: Community Brew Vol. 3
I am linking up with Madison and Rachel over at the Community Brew this month! I had a really tough 10th grade year in high school. I was bullied by teachers and students a lot. It was hard. And I spent most days crying at home in my bedroom after school, not sharing my burdens with those around me because I didn't want to bother anyone with what was going on. On the outside, I acted like everything was fine. I chose to be happy despite what I was going through, because the alternative was Continue reading [...]

This week is a busy one for me, because my little sister is coming home to visit on Friday!  I am so excited to see her and spend time with her.  Luckily I planned ahead on blog posts because there will be very little time for all that once she is here.  Speaking of blogging, I am so excited Continue reading [...]

Fluffy Strawberry Lemon Cookies

Strawberry Lemon Cookies from Crafty Wife
{This recipe was adapted from Cherished Bliss} Well, I originally wanted to make a Disney Dessert recipe for this week but that definitely did not happen.  I spent last weekend with my friend Laura at her house, and as always we decided to make a ton of snacks to pig out on while we hung out.  Laura has made these cookies many different times, but this was the first time she made them for me.  And...they were amazing! I could not get over how light and fluffy they were. We ate the majority Continue reading [...]
