Wow! The last two weeks have flown by! We’re definitely into that stage where so much has been accomplished but, at first glance, it looks like we’ve barely done anything. We have so many big projects in progress right now and several of them are nearing completion so I know we’re only days away from feeling a major sense of accomplishment as the lose ends begin to tie up!

It’s always hard to talk about yourself in posts like this… BUT, having a good connection and getting along with your wedding photographer can make a huge difference in how the day flows!
