best of getting ready 2012

This is a fun one. The best of getting ready from 2012. This is my favorite part of the day because its basically when we show up and the photography process begins. I love more than anything walking into a home or bridal suite where the energy is high and the tunes are bumping. When I walk into a room like that it tells me that its going to be a fun day! This is also a fun part of the day because we’re meeting all the bride and grooms friends and family for the first time and again everyone is in such a good mood. Thats why I love my job. Imagine walking into your job every time you go to work and everyone is all smiles and in a good mood. How awesome is that? So in this one its all about emotions, whether its excitement, tears of joy, anticipation or laughter. Sit back and enjoy this best of.
