Everything fell into place with this one.
When I reached out to one of my favorite wedding photographers to ask if she would be able to help mentor me with my business her response was so heartfelt and positive. I knew I made the absolute right choice by reaching out to Amanda from Amanda Adams Photography! We worked around each others schedules and worked out a date for not only me to fly out to her for a day long mentoring session, but to assist her in shooting a wedding. Pinch me, I was going to get mentored and work along side one of my biggest inspirations as a photographer!
As the date came I packed up and flew out to Baltimore. Somehow, not sure still how this worked out, but I was able to rent a car from Baltimore at Noon...drive to NYC to meet my family from Boston halfway, fought through NYC rush hour, ate Mexican in the best place ever, explored Times Square, met an amazing tour guide who showed us Central Park including STRAWBERRY FIELDS then finished up with ice cream and made it to bed by 10! Got up at 6am to drive 4 hours to Lusby Maryland where I was excitedly met in the front yard by Amanda, sweet little Thea and licked by Murphy (he's a dog don't worry) I knew instantly we would click so well!
We spent the day eating and laughing and I learned so many eye openers about my business. Things I was doing wrong...and right and ways to make this little dream of mine work! I am officially ready to take the wedding and engagement only plunge!
Finally, it was the end of our day and as we said our goodbyes and I was off to find a hotel (because I am a procrastinator) and somehow got upgraded to the bridal suite...SCORE!
The next day was nothing more than magical, as we followed Rebecca and Kyle around their special day! They were married in Historic St. Mary's City at the State House and it was absolutely perfect! The venue, the day, the couple, the people, everything! I couldn't have felt more welcomed by everyone, including Amanda! We we the perfect pair together and were so in sync!
Again we spent the day laughing and having a great time, all while finishing our day off eating cake in the car with our fingers...it was good cake!
If you have a moment to check her out or if you are in the Maryland area look her up, she does phenomenal work! And we both travel, so if you are somewhere else both of us can come to you ;)
