The Beauty and the Baseball Bats

I had the opportunity to sit down yesterday with a lovely young woman, whom I have known for 14 years, to discuss her July wedding which I will be photographing. It was nice to catch up with her and her mom and step dad. Amanda is a girly girl who was into pageants and is now a teacher and cheer coach and is marrying a guys guy who loves the St. Louis Cardinals (she also likes them).

We talked for a while about her fairytale dream and then she threw me for a loop and said that they were thinking about walking through an arch of baseball bats that the groomsmen would be holding up, like the Marines hole up swords. What a picture that would make and how original to incorporate his favorite sport into the wedding. This thought only set my mind a whir with other photos that would be perfect for the groomsmen and maybe even the bridesmaids! I imagine there will be a couple of shots of the groom and his guys "playing ball" in tuxes and many other sports related shots! I am so excited!

At the end of the meeting Amanda asked if I was a ZTA and I was thrilled to find out that she is a sister ZTA from Indiana State University! How cool is that?

By the way, I thought I would throw a plug in here for Entrecard. This blog is now 5th (for the moment) out of 513 photography blogs and I am working hard to get into the top 3 because then my button would be displayed on the main campaign page for Entrecard! I think it is pretty cool but it takes a lot of dropping and a lot of advertising on pages with higher rank. Entrecard has also helped me triple my traffic to my page!!! If you don't have Entrecard check into it, afterall it is free!

We are spending the afternoon with Spencer's dad today so I will be out of the loop for a few hours! I just hope I can survive without my laptop! Today's picture is just a fun one I took for the heck of it to see how it turned out! Not my best work but it was kind of fun!

The wedding planning sounds so fun. What a unique theme. Congrats on your blog being 3rd out of 513. That's fantastic. Great job! I love Entrecard too. What a great way to meet new friends. Hope you have a great weekend.

Sounds like a fun wedding to work!

Congrats on moving up in ranking! I like Entrecard for increasing traffic, although I find nobody comments much. I feel like they just stop to click, which is frustrating. It seems to be the same tried and true who really come back time after time.

Good luck today. Enjoy!

I love the bat idea, I was able to have Army saber bearers and loved it. I am and Entrecard fan s well but I haven't been able to increase my traffic that much guess I need to drop some more
