This fall, I was itching to have some new photos taken of me and Josh. Other than snapping a shot of each other here and there, we hadn't had our pictures made since our own wedding back in 2009 (by Nashville's lovely Sarah Beaty of Eyeris Photography... HOLLA!). Sidenote: I recently learned that to have your picture "made" is an exclusively Southern phrase that APPARENTLY doesn't make sense and unless you want to be made fun of by every yankee within hearing distance (i unfortunately, live with one of them, and am therefore constantly teased because of my creative verbiage), you better say you're having your picture taken.
So in November, I called up my girl Alicia White in Charlotte, who I got to know at WPPI U this summer, and asked her if she'd be willing to take some family portraits of us. Alicia is an amazingly talented photographer and a beautiful person, inside and out. I have to admit, this being the first time we were in front of the camera since becoming a full-time wedding business, it was very intimidating and slightly awkward, but it gave me so much great insight into how I relate to my brides and grooms while photographing them. In fact, I think we just might make the Glessner family photos a yearly tradition so we remember what it's like to be on the other side of the lens.
I had a really difficult time picking just a few images for this post, but here are a few of my favorites...
Love it when my sweet husband makes me smile <3
I am absolutely obsessed with this Chelsea+Violet dress... for real.
