    [W] News # 14

    I know, I know...You're thinking what happened last week with the randomness?
    Well after trying to figure out blogger and editing, I just didn't get to it and it was to close
    to this weeks so I skipped it. Ooops! :)
    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to Thomas and Keleigh for having a blast
    this morning with me and for laughing at my silliness. It rocked!
    Saturday is officially two weeks before my b-day!! Yay! I'm excited to be turning the 
    BIG 24. I'll let you know how I feel the day of when it sinks in that I'm getting older. 
    Only days away from my trip to Chicago..woohoo! 
    Can any one tell me how freakin' cold
    I'm going to be? I need to start packing. 
    Gossip Girl is taking a break and will not have a new episode until Dec 1. 
    It just keeps getting better and better. I can't believe Vanessa would do that to Jenny.  

    Since I've stopped watching DWTS, what's been going on? Who's left?
    Yesterday my good photo girlfriends took some photos of me.  
    Rebeca and Katherine said they turned out great. I'll be sharing them on the blog asap! 

    Let me just say, I wasn't as shy as I thought I'd be.    :p

    Bridget and Cristian: Engagement

    As I have gotten to know Bridget and Cristian, I can honestly say they are the sweetest with one another. I met them at the Bridal Symposium in April. They were the last couple I spoke with during Saturday's show. I'm so glad I didn't close up shop right on the dot.  :)

    One thing I noticed right away was the way Cristian looks, holds and talks about Bridget. 
    She is his world and he completes her. 

    For their engagement session they decided they wanted to commemorate where they had meet. With the salsa music in the background they talked for hours and fell in love. 

    Taco Milagro on Kirby was our first stop. 

    In case you don't know, milagro means miracle in spanish.

    Just like that first evening.

    Check out that bling!

    Do you see what I mean? This is totally them!!!

    There going to use this one on their save the date! Love it.

    Aww..this is love!

    To view more of the photos you can view their engagement slideshow here.

    Thanks for such a wonderful evening, despite the chance of rain 
    and for introducing me to Chuys! What a delish!

    One Year

    A lot can happen in a year. Today marks the anniversary of this little blog. 
    119 post later we have come a long way.

    I'm a year older. 
    The website was introduced.
    The JTG STUDIO logo was born. 
    I went full time into my business.
    Had a booth at the Bridal Symposium.
    Traveled to Mexico for a couple of weddings.
    Made some new friends in the photography business. 
    Attended several photography workshops and seminars to better myself.
    Shoot some amazing weddings and had a blast living the dream!

    Thank you for sticking around for a whole year. Here's to another one!

    Goin' to Chi-Town

    In less then two weeks, I'll be in Chicago for a wedding.  
    I'm excited because I haven't been since 2000 and because 
    I think I might get to see real, make-a-snowball-and-through-it at my brother-SNOW!!  :)

    If you are a blog reader or photographer from the Chicago area, I would love to meet.
    We'll get some hot chocolate and chat! 

    If you are interested in a session, I would definitely love to shoot in a new location. 
    Holla at me and we can get that all worked out. It would truly be amazing!

    Still no photos...sorry folks. Someone please help me sort this out. Thanks for being patient.

    Where are the pictures?

    You must be wondering why I haven't been blogging any photos lately. The main reason is that blogger, is doing something really weird when I try to upload them. Instead of the nice and big photos, I'm getting the tiny ones. I know you prefer the nice and big photos so I'm holding out until I can see what is wrong. : (

    I've got plenty to blog about, it's just this darn blogger.

    I'm so mad that, [W] news will have to wait until tomorrow. Or maybe later today. I'm going to figure this out somehow.

    If not, there is always the better option of getting a beautiful, custom blog. 
    This girl is full of dreams!!! : )
