It's amazing how fast this year has gone by, but Christmas will be here before you know it! This holiday season I will be off for several weeks getting some much needed R&R, spending time with family, and then attending a photography convention/tradeshow in January.

All you procrastinators need to sit down tonight or over the weekend and get your orders in because only print orders placed before November 12 will definitely be mailed out before I take off for Christmas. Orders placed after the cut-off may or may not be delivered before Christmas depending on workload, and no... sending me brownies and cookies will not expedite your order (or help with my pre-holiday diet).

In order to accommodate all of the couples with fall sessions and weddings, my processing workload has gotten a little behind. To keep everyone updated, I am currently processing the first week in October. Those with orders or sessions before October 7 should expect to hear from me this week with gallery links or delivery notices.

I'm still taking applications for a free bridal portrait session on October 28. I saw something on the news today about how they've drained the lake in Cumberland Mountain State Park so that they can work on the Byrd Creek Dam. The park is just south of Crossville which happens to be on the way to Nashville, and it looks like a cool location for a photo shoot. I'm not 100% sure they'd allow people to walk around in the empty lake bed, but I'll call and check if anyone from the Knoxville/Chattanooga area is interested in traveling to Crossville for the session. There will be at least two other photographers involved, and we're sure to get some really cool photos.

What a weekend! I've spent most of today catching up on email. The electricity in my community was out for several hours on Thursday so I wasn't able to be online. Then I left early on Friday for a trip to Florida where Marcus and I photographed Sarah & Danny's awesome beach wedding (check back later this week for pics). The wedding was Saturday, but the couple woke up early Sunday for a sunrise couple session on the beach. We all got a little wet, and I'm not sure that I'll ever get all of the sand out of my equipment. It was a lot of fun though, and I'm excited about the photos we were able to get. Special thanks to Sarah's sister Allison (one of my 2006 brides) for letting Sarah use her veil.

I had a "trash the dress" session set up with a bride for later this month, but she has a scheduling conflict and isn't going to be able to do it. I'm really disappointed, especially after the fun that I had with yesterday's session so.... I'm looking for a replacement. To qualify, you must already be married and be willing to get your dress dirty, wet, and/or possibly damaged. You must be available on October 28 for the session which will take place in the Nashville area. I prefer to have a couple (no tux required), but I will shoot a bride alone.

There will probably be a couple of other photographers involved so we may be able to shoot more than one bride. If you are interested, please send me a photo of you in your wedding dress along with a short explanation of why you want the session and any location ideas you may have. The deadline for applications is October 18 so don't delay!
