Skater Skirt on Repeat

|| Skirt – Similar, Similar || Tank – Similar || Wedges – Similar, Similar ||
Jake’s look:
|| Jeans – Here || Shirt – Similar || Boots – Here || Belt – Similar ||
I’m sharing with you mine and Jake’s look today. Something different, but I figured since he was in the pictures we might as well right.
We found out we could switch and do a different outfit the night before our pics (when we were sleeping). We were excited but we were limited since we were waking up so early to go shoot so we could catch as much natural lighting as possible! So we do wish we would have starched Jake’s jeans but other than that everything was good :). We did our best with what we had! 
This look, for both of us, would be great for a more casual wedding, sometimes on the invitation it may say “Cowboy Formal”, that means this type of outfit or a dress for the girl with some boots or wedges. Depending if you are in Texas or not haha. 
I also threw this braid in after we took our “Anniversary Shoot” in my wedding dress. I wanted something a little different and something fun. So I came up with this out of nowhere. Jake said it looks like a flower braid, that’s kind of cute. Which means he liked it hehe. So I may be making a tutorial for this one if you are wanting to see this!
I hope everyone is having a great week. I am setting my camera up in my new room at the salon, I think shooting tutorials will be better there. We will see :).
Thanks for reading!

One Year

I can’t believe it has been a year and almost another month since we got married! 
We took these pictures on our first anniversary, it was so much fun… well I had fun and I think Jake did too because if you can’t tell we are laughing in almost every picture! We were sweating sooo bad because this was right when all the rain had started here so it was super humid. 
I am so glad that we were able to do an “Anniversary shoot”. Our wedding pictures were great too! But, these were so much more relaxed AND I got to put my wedding dress back on which was super exciting. When do you get to wear your wedding dress more than once? 
Yes, that is our real cake! I suggest if you are going to eat it to pull it out a week in advance and put it in the fridge for a week, then eat it. That is what we did and it turned out great!
I love looking at these pictures. You can tell after a year we are still very much in love with each other and continue to have soo much fun together. I am a very lucky girl to have been blessed with a husband like Jake. He is so good to me. He is super patient and is behind me 100% in everything that I do, even if I want to put my dress back on and set up a table in a field to take pictures haha! But really, it has been an awesome first year of marriage and I can’t wait to see us fall even more for each other in our second year of marriage. Hopefully we survive building a house. I’ve heard it’s trying, but we Jake is pretty good at spoiling me so, I think we may have it a bit easier. I hope :).
Trish Dove, owner of Beatbox Portraits took these pictures for us and, as always, I love her work!
 I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. We didn’t have much going on since it is raining here in Texas and we both worked this weekend and Jake worked Monday. So Sunday when we were both off we spent the day deep cleaning our house and pre packing. Ugh! I’m soooo impatient about our new house that I can’t resist. How did you spend your weekend, I would love to hear!

Our Trip To Fredericksburg

I know it’s all you’ve been hearing but is it ever going to stop raining!! I mean the lake is almost full isn’t that enough. ha. But for real, I want to start our house building again. Right now it just looks like a bunch of puddles of water and mud. Maybe next week we will get to plumb and pour the concrete. Everyone else is behind too so who knows, maybe we will be in by Christmas haha.
Our first anniversary was May 2nd and we took the weekend off and drove to Fredericksburg. I had always wanted to go and had never been. We had a lot of fun we stayed in a hotel in Kerville, which is about 24 miles past Fredericksburg. We booked last minute so everything was already taken in Fredericksburg. We also took some super fun pictures, I’m waiting to get back so I can show you.
We woke up Saturday, had breakfast, and went downtown. We went into EVERY store, even a baby clothing store. (which was embarrassing because the lady asked us how old our daughter was, we said we didn’t have one, and then she says, “Oh, well do ya’ll do this often?”) So then we walked out because we felt super awkward! I guess she didn’t want our business. :/
Around lunch we drove out to Hye, where we were headed to Hye Meadows Winery but stopped for food at Hye Market. Hye Market turned out to be our favorite place. The owner was hosting a little party since he was reopening the dance hall across the street from the market. The market was also a post office. It was just a cute little small town shop, that served multiple purposes, and had the sweetest, down to earth workers friends. 
We then went to “The Fat Ass Winery” (sorry that is what it was called). It was really good too. All of the wine was semi sweet there, just so you know. They had a patio where a local band was playing and we sat and listened to them for awhile. 
Then Jake took me to Luckenbach, boy was I surprised. I’ve heard the country song many times and always thought it was something different. It’s basically a stage, everything else is brought (i.e. campers, tents, bikes). We stayed a little bit and then headed back to Fredericksburg for dinner.
When we got back to our hotel we pulled our cake out. Surprisingly it was REALLY good. Mine was coconut and Jake’s is actually still in my mom’s freezer, which I’m sure we will pull out at some point.
On Sunday morning we got up and had breakfast then started to head back home. Jake surprised me and stopped by Enchanted Rock. This was something I had wanted to do. It’s a State Park that has a huge, I mean ginormous, rock that you can hike up. I was so excited and impressed that Jake wanted /did it for me, hiked the rock. Due to his knee surgery. If you look at the pictures above you can see kind of how high it was. It was a little scary when we got up to the top, I kept looking down thinking ‘maybe this is far enough’. Haha, but we made it all the way to the top. On the way back down we say tadpoles transforming into frogs. I’m a nerd and thought it was really cool, so I shared a picture of that too.
Our trip was way to short. Now we are back to work and just working towards our house and next getaway. If you’ve been following my instagram you’ve seen I got my own room in the salon now. I’m so excited. I am not finished with it yet but when I am I will post more pictures.
Stay dry and have a great week!
XO,
Britany
