I had the pleasure of spending the day with Nirvani!  She booked a deluxe session  (which means she got to pick two locations to shoot at).  The first stop was Cocoa Beach, and it was early!!  But, like 90% of the time, it was a beautiful morning!  (You never know, until you get out there, what kind of sunrise you will get.  But most mornings are wonderful!).  This morning, we had a beautiful sunrise, nice cloud cover (which is a good thing), and warm water.  Can’t ask for much more than that!  The second stop, after going home for a shower and a quick nap ;), was Kraft Azalea.  Great afternoon, and we timed it perfectly!  As we were leaving there were prom-goers arriving to take group photos there.  I love it when everything falls into place ;).

Nirvani was such a sweet girl, and so excited for her shoot.  At the beach, she really had her heart set on trying the “hair flip water thing”.  It is harder to get a perfect hair flip, then you would think!  But she was a trooper.  Anything to get the shot!  (#1 reason why I love shooting seniors so much!  They will do anything for a great shot!)  So, of course, I wanted to have the hair flip shot as one of her sneak peeks ;).

Yep, you read that correctly.  JPSearcy Bridals.  I have been fighting it for a while, but since starting my business, one thing I have learned – NEVER SAY NEVER!!!  I used to say, “I will never shoot seniors.  I remember ME as a teenager, and I wouldn’t want to work with me every day!”  Obviously, that doesn’t hold true anymore!  Seniors are my most favorite people in the world to shoot now!  (Not to mention, they are a lot nicer than I was as a teenager 😉 )  And many of you have asked along the way, “Will you shoot weddings?”  My answer has always been NEVER!  Well, I am softening up in my old age, I guess, because I am not going to say, “No,  never!” anymore.  Does this mean that I am going to go full force into weddings now, and ditch my seniors?  Of course not!  Seniors are my favorites, I would never give them up!  But I will, begin to take on a couple weddings.  What would be ideal for me, is to shoot my senior’s weddings (after they are done with college of course!).  You won’t see me out in bridal shows, or anything like that.  It will just be something that I will offer when the right couples come along.  Really, would probably be only referrals, because I don’t know how else they would find me ;).

With that all being said, I have a very good friend in Nashville.  She, happens to be a fabulous wedding/event planner (http://www.amagicalaffair.com, if you are needing someone!  She does do out of town weddings/destination weddings/events as well, so you don’t HAVE to be in Nashville to use her!).  Well, she has been trying to twist my arm for YEARS to get into weddings.  When I told her that I was thinking about offering weddings, she was so excited, and we planned a trip for me to Nashville.  She was fabulous!  She had a nice variety of locations for me, beautiful dresses, wedding bouquets, AND some beautiful models, all so I could do some bridal shoots to start a portfolio.  We had such an amazing time!

Here are some samples of what I was working on when I was there:

First location: The Factory at Franklin

Second location: Gaylord Opryland

And final location: Kings Chapel

So, if you are looking for a wedding photographer, give me a call!  I will be accepting only a VERY limited number of weddings, starting in the fall of 2012.  Contact me to discuss your wedding and packages I offer!

She lets your opinion be heard (whether it be a pose or a setting), knows what she is doing, and makes you feel like a star. Everyone wants this from their photographer but only few photographers actually fit this description and Jeannette is definitely one of them. 🙂

Why I think others should have their senior photos done with JPSearcy?  JP Searcy is awesome! Not only will you have a good time you have freedom to explore whatever positions or styles you want for YOUR pictures.
