Throwback Thursday: #TBT to 5 Years Ago This Month

Hey everybody!

For today's Throwback Thursday, I thought I'd take a look back five years this month and see what I was up to. The highlights are below.

This shot used to be the header of the blog. Lacie is such a cool person (she's actually the assistant for Jose Villa, a great photographer - and she's pretty great too!). I love the texture and feel of this image, even five years later!

Ashley is a fabulous Benny Bride who married Clint (one of our favorite grooms, who cried saying his vows!). This session was so fun because there was still snow on the ground and the wind was nuts! I love the composition here because it was definitely a rule-breaker from the typical bridal portrait.

Kelly married Wes five years ago this month. This wedding was in Eureka Springs, and as Wes was a photographer himself, I took it as a personal mission to blow him away. :) This also is one of the only weddings I've used a tilt-shift lens (in the image below) for a pretty cool effect.

On the non-wedding front, Ellie met our favorite cake designer, Jennifer Matsubura from Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe in Springdale.  We've used Jennifer for all our cakes since then (my wedding cake is still my all-time favorite!). Jennifer is a Food Network star, and I feel like Ellie will someday be one too... haha!

Jessica, one of our wedding shooters, and one of the most amazing people I know (so sweet, so talented, and such a good mom) and I did a photoshoot in a dress that I accidentally spilled wine on at a wedding. Whoops!! Haha! We thought we'd go ahead and fully trash the dress.

Mariah was one five years ago.  That's crazy!  We've watched this sweet and sassy little lady grow up, and are amazed at her rockin' personality nowadays!

Brandi and Eli got married this month five years ago. We shot their Pratt Place wedding and loved the flowering that was happening and threw them in the middle of it... still one of our signature moves 5 years later!

We were also working on getting our name out there by working with boutiques... Monday's Child (now gone) was one of them, where we met many of our very favorite NWA families!  How sweet is this shot?

What a fun trip down memory lane!  Join me tomorrow for another hashtag post!!

Talk to you soon,
