August was a crazy busy month! This is my first real wedding season as a full-time photographer, and I’m learning I need better boundaries and scheduled time off. I’ve already started brainstorming how we can actually have and enjoy summer next year!

Enjoy this quick recap of August 2021!


Personal

  • We got moved into our new house! We’ve officially been here a week and a day as of today. The move didn’t go as expected (does it ever?), but we’re here and making everything feel like home!

  • Kyle and my sister Elyse celebrated their birthdays this month! We spent a little time together as a family early in the month!

Meredith Brooke Photography

  • I celebrated with Bre & Nic as they became Mr. & Mrs. Vincent on August 5th at Crystalline Events in Fairmont, WV! Their blogpost will be up soon!

  • I had the opportunity to shoot Maddie’s senior session in Thomas, WV! Her blogpost will be up soon!

  • I shot Nora & Joey’s beautiful wedding at the Waterfront Marriott in Morgantown, WV with 22 of their closest friends and family. I really love intimate weddings! They’re blogpost is also coming soon!

  • I traveled to Deep Creek Lavender Farm for Ian & Olivia’s engagement session. They will be getting married in December and I am very much looking forward to celebrating along with them! Again, blogpost coming soon! Can you tell which one of my business tasks took a backseat this month?

  • Caitlin & Zach got married on a GORGEOUS day at Stone House Lavender (one of my very favorite local wedding venues). They were my first boho wedding, and it was to die for! You know the blog post will show up soon!

  • I was able to help one of my business besties with a wedding at Athena Farm & Vineyard in Beckley. I cannot wait to share a few images from this gorgeous day. The venue is STUNNING. If you’re a potential bride reading this right now and you’re getting married at Athena PICK ME!

Reading

I started a few books that I just could not finish this month. I usually don’t do that, but this month I picked two major duds! I also had a very unintentional library theme this month randomly!

  • The Midnight Library by Matt Haig – I heard so many good things about this and it just fell flat for me. It was just ok!

  • The Storied Life of A.j. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin – Loved this story. It’s a lot different than anything I’ve ever read, and the story develops and changes at the end.

  • The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han (I listened to this while I packed and unpacked) – This is a sweet story! Perfect for summer reading.

  • The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern – I’m slightly obsessed with this book. Read it immediately!

The Duds that I Didn’t FInish

  • The Truants by Kate Weinberg

  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt

Stuff I’m Loving

  • Stanley Adventure Quencher Travel Tumbler – I never go anywhere without this and refer to this cup as Stanley the Manly or Stanley Hudson. I left this in my car on a 90+ degree day for several hours during a wedding, and when I had a minute to go grab it, my water was still cold! They sell out of these really quickly so get on their email list for when they’re back in stock again!

  • The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew at Starbucks – SO GOOD

  • Val Marie Paper Rhythms Prayer Journal – This will be my third year using this journal for prayer and I love it! I ordered mine in Terracotta!

  • Daily Simplified Planner in Kelly Green Bees – I’ve also used a Simplified Planner for 3 (maybe 4) years and I don’t think I could function without it!
