Raeanne & Colin Save the Dates

07 May 2014

Here's a sneak peek of my shoot from last night with my favorite couple. Oh, and did I mention their ADORABLE new puppy. Meet, Mater :)







This shoot was so important to me on so many different levels. Not only are Raeanne and Colin returning clients (check out our previous shoot here) but since then Rae has asked me to do her wedding. Yep. My first wedding. I was in absolute hysterics when she asked. It's so awesome to have so many amazing people support me and help me as I grow my photography business. And speaking of growing, this is the other reason this shoot was so important to me was it was the first shoot I shot entirely in manual mode.

This is HUGE for me.

I finally pushed myself out of my comfort zone and ventured into the manual mode wilderness.

This was the first big step in my photography career.

Teaching myself how to use my camera and most importantly understand it was vital to me and to my future in photography.

I still have a long way to go, the end product is still not close to where I'd like to see it, but it's getting there.

I have a lot of learning, experience, and classes I'm sure before I see a light at the end of the tunnel but for now, this is a HUGE accomplishment and I can't wait to see where it goes from here :)
