Ooooh goodness...tonight I got my California film scans back from @photovisionprints and I'm over the mooooon! First off, my lab is seriously hands down the BEST lab ever...they delivered my scans within 3 days of receiving the order (40 rolls worth!!!) and secondly, they did an AMAZING job with my scans! 😘🙌🏼 I'm so excited to share more of my West Coast trip with you guys...stay tuned for an overflow on my insta feed of beautiful couples & Rocky cliffs! (This session will definitely be hitting the blog 😍) #swooning#contax645#fuji400h#legionmuseumofhonor

2017 was a great year but I'm definitely looking forward to next year's wedding season...which kicks off in January! ❄️ // #markanthonyd
Happy Friday folks! Today’s tip from @theganeys is about soft focus and movement: “This photo was captured at the @amandawatsonworkshops in the gorgeous @thewhitesparrow barn. The day was ending, the light was fading quickly, and all of the attendees were lined up parallel to where the model was moving. I remember being a little bummed that I was at the very end of the row (next to the model as she started her journey), but I decided to do the best I could, just as I would on any wedding day when you're dealt less-than-idea conditions. Despite my placement, this image turned out to be one of my favorites from the workshop! For this image, I purposely didn't focus on the model (because honestly, I knew it would be nearly impossible for me to capture her in focus at 1/30th of a second as she ran from me). I love the way the longer exposure time makes her dress resemble a waterfall and how the soft focus really allows the imagination to take over. Movement shots are always some of my favorites!”

I love those quiet moments with the bride!! I think it’s so important to take a few moments to capture just her in all her beauty on the wedding day!
Think about how much thought she put into choosing a makeup artist, a hair stylist, her jewelry. How much time was spent on Pinterest looking for the perfect bouquet, the shoes, the dress! Why not take a few minutes to capture all of those things that she is going to have only for that one day! I am sure she will be thankful for those precious photos to look back on! This bride was no exception 😍
As father daughter first looks go, this one was pretty much the best ever.

I mean can we just go back to this day?! Adeye and Eric’s wedding will always hold a place in my heart. They were the first to book with me when I moved to Vegas and the very last wedding I shot while living in Vegas. This year has been crazy and all over the place, but I wouldn’t trade it. Adeye, I feel so honored you chose me to capture your beautiful wedding! 💗 #shannonelizabethphotography#heartfull

This quote was found on a picture of Eric’s Mom from her wedding, and Adeye incorporated into their wedding by adding it to her ribbon on her bouquet. I love this unique and simple way of creating a new heirloom piece. Florals by @layersoflovely calligraphy by @stephanieb_design
📍 ITS OFFICIAL: 🔐Before we skipped out of town we decided to buy our business a big beautiful Christmas present 🎁, a new studio! Our new HCo Headquarters are set to open January 2018. 🔔 Let the overly-branded decorating begin!
Today I am really feeling the remarkable truth that in the midst all of my deficiencies, God is gloriously gracious. He does not seek to constantly point out my weaknesses or hold them against them. Instead, He shows me His sufficiency, gently reminding me that I do not need to be everything or do everything. When I fall short, His provision fills in all the gaps - and then some. ❤️ So I’m praying that if you’ve been noticing your own inadequacies and weaknesses lately too, we would all be pointed back to his strength. He is a gracious provider. A glorious king.
Goodness gracious, we are smitten with this offbeat bouquet from Marisa and Chris’s intimate wedding at Malmaison, on the Bride & Groom blog today. The couple wanted something intimate that was food-focused and not too “typical DC.” The solution they came up with —with the help of @lisablumephoto and @darlinganddaughters— was an elegant fine dining reception at @malmaisondc. Head to the blog for more details from this special wedding | photography: @lisablumephoto | florals: @darlinganddaughters
Y'all. I'm tired. No sugar coating it, no trying to make everything seem like a fairytale with rainbows and unicorns. The truth of the matter is that since August I have been nonstop. I JUST unpacked my suitcases (I had 3 still packed from different trips) and I have to pack another suitcase to head to CA next week for our last wedding of the year. Our wedding course opens tomorrow and this week we have worked from 8am - midnight finishing up the videos, doing voiceovers, recording more videos and also editing weddings and sessions. This job is not easy folks but gosh, how can something that is so hard be so incredibly amazing at the same time. Yes I'm making major strides to slow down next year (at least slow for me, which is probably busy for most, lol) but I LOVE, love what I do and I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. So this is one last shameless plug for the year. We have decided to open up registration for the wedding course for 24 hrs. That means at 10am tomorrow morning this course will close and you will NOT have access to it until we open it up again next year. This course has over 7 hrs of videos. It's me shooting a real wedding, it's me sharing our processes before the wedding, during the wedding and after the wedding. So much info is included and I would have given ANYTHING to have this opportunity to learn this early in my career. If you want to pay in full you will save some money but we also have a payment plan as well AND you will still get immediate access. Start your year off right, make 2018 YOUR year. Thank you friends for making life great, I'm so happy you visit my little part of internet. PS just click on the link in bio to register! Go do it, you won't regret it. My southern accent and loud high pitch voice might cause you stress at times, but hey, it's good content y'all. Consider yourself warned. hehe. #juliepaisleyphotography#nashville#nashvillewedding#stylemepretty#southernweddings#marthaweddings#filmweddingphotographer#fineartweddings#nashvilleweddingphotographer#theknot#brides#destinationweddingphotographer#filmphotographer#contax645#weddingphotographer#charlestonweddingphotographer
It's FRIDAY!!! YAY!!! What are you doing today? ME? Well, I'm rockin' my favorite @lululemon yoga pants and my favorite @aerie sweatshirt and hunkering down for a long day of editing! We are also finishing up the videos on our new wedding course (LAST DAY TO ENROLL-LINK IN BIO) so it's just downright busy! Tonight we decorate our Christmas tree (a little late but well, it's been busy) and I'm going to try to nail down the last of my "to buy for" Christmas list. Tis the season to be busy but oh how I love it so! What's your plans for today and this weekend? And PS, last shameless plug, but go check out our wedding course y'all, it's fabulous and I want you to be a part of it. Ok? Treat yourself and get in those last little business deductions for the year! I mean, you can watch me shoot a real wedding, c'mon, join me! And yes, that beautiful person above is our BRIDE! #juliepaisleyphotography#nashville#nashvillewedding#stylemepretty#southernweddings#marthaweddings#filmweddingphotographer#fineartweddings#nashvilleweddingphotographer
