Oh my goodness, everyone, listen up. YOU NEED TO HIRE MY FRIEND, HAYLEY TO TAKE YOUR PHOTOS!
I realize that may seem contradictory since I should want you to hire me instead of her, but seriously she is so talented. I asked her to come take photos at Friendsgiving this year, because every year I’m sad about the lack of photos we have. I always tell myself I’ll take more and better photos, but then when I’m there I remember I’d rather be “in the moment” and “present” than worrying about taking photos. This year I (finally) realized that’s exactly why people hire photographers for weddings–so why not hire someone to shoot Friendsgiving? I immediately knew I wanted to work with Hayley on this. She shadowed me a few years ago while she was still getting started in photography, and (as you can clearly see) her talent has definitely superseded mine! If you’d like to see her gorgeous post (girl can write and take photos) about Friendsgiving, you can find it here.
She beautifully captured what it feels like to celebrate life and friends under twinkle lights :)
Also, I owe a huge THANK YOU to all of our friends who helped us raise funds for Charity Water at Friendsgiving this year! Together we were able to help provide one of the most basic resources, clean water, to people around the world. If you’re interested in learning more about Charity Water (they’re pretty amazing), you can do so here!
I definitely copied Lindsey Letters for this photo backdrop, and I love how it turned out!
My heart is full.
Happy Monday, friends!
