I had such a great time at Michele & Bradley’s wedding at First Baptist Church in Harrisburg, Arkansas on Saturday. We had a very cold, drizzly day, but the poor weather didn’t stop the couple from having a wonderful time. The 1st Baptist Church was packed with all of their friends and family who then left to go to their parents’ home for their spectacular reception. Here are a few of my favorites from the day!
I had a wonderful time photographing Stefany & Paul’s wedding last Saturday. They were married at St. Boniface Church in Fort Smith, Arkansas. I knew i would enjoy this wedding after having a great time with Stefany and Paul during their engagement session last year. They were so much fun to be around and so in love that it was super easy to get some fabulous photos for them. The same held true during their wedding and I really enjoyed getting to meet their family and friends. Check out some of my favorite images below from Saturday’s wedding.
I’m sure by now most of you have seen the Pep Talk YouTube video by Kid President. It currently has over 15,000,000 views, and I know I’ve contributed at least a couple of dozen. The video itself is quite inspiring, but when you learn about Kid President’s real life struggles, it takes on a completely different meaning. Robby Novak (Kid President) is nine years old and lives in a small town in Tennessee. He has Osteogenesis imperfecta, a condition causing extremely fragile bones. He has had over 70 broken bones, more than a dozen surgeries, and he has steel rods in his legs. Watch the video below if you haven’t for some inspiring words from a kid who has many struggles of his own.
A Pep Talk from Kid President
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the video. Each one of these could be a blog post in and of itself. Robby has a lot of wisdom in that fragile nine year old body of his. We can learn a lot from thinking about these questions and ideas he poses in the video!
