{REAL WEDDING} LOVE AT TEXAS’ AMARILLO CIVIC CENTER…

that last frame is by far one of my favorites from

SIDNEY MORGAN

this girl has some major talent and a stellar eye (and also a very contagious laugh).

more from this wedding HERE.  but you must really see the beauty and pure joy she always manages to capture for yourself on SIDNEY’S BLOG.

and just a sidenote, confetti throw fridays might be on hold for the rest of the year (which is only a few more weeks) as i really want to squeeze in a few of these amazing submissions before the year ends.  hope that’s ok with you all!

{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 65…

when the world feels like such an ugly place and unfair, it’s important to just focus on the tiny little things that do make you happy.  everything that concerned you slowly fades into the background and what’s truly important picks you up.  one of these happy things for me is obviously confetti, but runner up is this blog.  can’t say enough how grateful i am to have this as something that allows me to focus when everything else is haywire.  and even when this blog is haywire, i am thankful for those who have supported this blog and keep supporting it every single day.  that’s truly what makes me happy.

so do confetti throw fridays.

as a reminder,  confetti throw fridays is where after spending my thursday nights scouring through my blog subscriptions and social media feeds, i pick my favorite images from any of the wedding photographers i am following and showcase them each week in the friday post.  it’s a chance to show off the hard work that wedding photographers have been up to.  in all honesty, i see it as a way for wedding photographers to cheer each other on and give high fives to each for the stellar work.  never see it as a competition or a let down if you’re not on here, always see it as motivation and to throw confetti for your peers in this industry.

yes, 4 out of the 6 images picked this week were black and white.  i have a thing for shadows so sometimes i have a tendency to lean towards those black and whites.  always so elegant and classic.  however, that last frame though.  you really just need to see the rest of these wedding photographers’ posts yourself.  so remember to click on each link to see more!

have a great weekend all!
