i can think of about five friends of mine that have gotten engaged in the past month…and there are quite possibly more than that. i’ve said before that at this point in my life i’m totally unprepared for marriage, and i still stand firmly by that statement but with all the wedding hype around me i’ve become a little bit obsessive looking at wedding blogs, engagement ring photos, etc. (i feel the need to clarify that i’m not one of those girls who have this vision of what their wedding will be regardless of the fact that they are not in a relationship. that’s
pathetic a waste of time. i have no absolutely no idea what i want the details of my wedding look like and do not spend time thinking about that far-in-the-future date.) that being said, i have really enjoyed looking at photos of different wedding venues, floral arrangements, dresses, and table settings and all of my creepy snooping has renewed my obsession with (for lack of a better word) “pretty” photos and how valuable it is to be able to use a camera beyond my point-and-shoot nikon coolpix…(i’m cool, i know) so, i thought i’d share a few “pretty” photos i’ve seen on different wedding blogs and a new fave of mine, mary ruffle’s website.
(again, why i’m growing my hair out. can’t wait to sport the side braid.)
peonies…my fave flower.

love this picture
i know this isn’t a wedding photo, but i’d like to be this girl. seriously.
side note: my birthday is coming up and i’m thinking i’m going to ask for the canon rebel t1i camera and lens kit… if anyone has any other suggestions for a beginning photographer they would be much appreciated!
