I want to shoot a proposal.

I’ve been dying to blog about it lately. It’s an idea that has lit my heart on fire and I just can’t seem to drop it. Readying myself, showing up early, hiding behind bushes, far away with my zoom lens to quietly document one of the most powerful moments of your life—the very second you agree to intertwine your life with another. Can you imagine?

So I’m putting it out there. Grooms—get ready. I’m giving away one free proposal session. All you need to do is email me with the info and we’ll set up the perfect date/time to make it happen. You bring the romance, I’ll capture the memories.

Any takers? (Email- jessica@moonbellephotography.com)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. (Like almost a year…can you say overdue??) I wanted something simple for today’s post. I’ve been enjoying some crazy changes in my life lately and I’ve spent today buzzing with energy. I need to calm down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week’s KISSES go to:

-My realtor, Stephen Prucha. Yesterday, I accepted a counter offer on a house. My house. My very first house. Words cannot accurately describe the roller coaster of emotions coursing through me right now. I will have a space that is mine. I will have a studio. I will have a client meeting area. I will have a home.

-Chai lattes. With all of this week’s excitement, I haven’t needed caffeine like I normally do. But faced with the cool, dampness brought by Alabama springtime, chai lattes have been a girl’s best friend.

-My son. Because he’s cute. And he may have beat me in Sorry. Twice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This weeks DISSES go to:

– the long waiting period until Starbucks releases the Mocha-Coconut Frapp. I miss it.

-Tiiiiiiime. I need more of it.

-Coming across old photos of yourself where you were 75lbs of elbows and knees with braces. Woah 7th grade. You were mean.

Last year, I was fortunate enough to do a lot of traveling. I love to travel, and I love that I have had the opportunity to work with destination brides. In 2012, I visited California, Nevada, Mississippi,Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida to work and I loved every second of it! I’m excited to announce that this year, I have even more destinations lined up! Here are some of my favorite bridal portraits of 2012!

Thank you to my sweet couples! Thank you for your vision, your trust, and your willingness to fly me out with you to make beautiful photos together!

-Jessica

Awhile back (February 2010 actually), I wrote a pretty hefty blog. A list of 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days. I’m happy to say that since then, I’ve crossed a few off the list, and this year, I was able to cross off another.

Biltmore Estates.

I first visited Biltmore in 2002 and fell in love. The lush greenery, the grand architecture, and the Beauty and the Beast-esque library had this girl in a daze. I’d been longing to return ever since. This year, my boyfriend and I made the decision to road-trip to Gatlinburg for skiing, then make our way to Asheville to see the Biltmore, have some delicious foods, and see friends.

We did soooo much on this trip. We found an amazing roadside stand with a huge collection of rocks, crystals, and fossils—it also had an original Sinclair Oil dino! So cool!! We made some pretty amazing meals, went wine tasting, and had some lovely ski time!

I also got to visit my beautiful (and super talented) photographer friend Sarajane Case before heading over to the Biltmore.

This photo of Ryan and I below was soooo tedious! I ran back and forth with the auto-timer for about 30 minutes before we got this shot! Whew!

I’m glad that I was able to cross something off of my 101 list. What are your longtime goals? Is there something you’re hoping to do soon?

I’ve been working on a LOT of client albums lately. And today, I got to mail one out. Creamy, white, and filled with thick pages of boudoir session goodness—this mini album was ready to go!! For privacy reasons, I can’t show the pages of this one but wooo!! Suffice to say I’m thrilled with the results! I’m super proud to show off my new client packaging—-after working so hard on my re-brand, I knew I needed to add a little something to my packages. I know we all love getting mail, but doesn’t it make it just that much better when it’s beautiful?! I think so!!

And ladies? If you’ve ordered an album and haven’t gotten it yet, you may just have a beautiful package headed your way!!
