Well, I have to say that I never thought when I headed into the pastry field that I would be posing for photo shoots, but these kind of unexpected surprises are what makes going out on my own totally worth it! I was a little hesitant at first to pose by myself…I thought the shoot was just for the desserts, but when Ryel said she wanted to shoot some of just me I said okay thinking it would only be head shots. To my surprise I was posing and all..blush blush! Once I relaxed a little and stopped thinking about how funny I probably looked I had a great time and really loved how the photos turned out. Ryel, from RyelJ Photography, is one talented lady and so much fun to work with. If you are getting married anytime soon I would definitely recommend contacting her! Well, enough talk…lets get on to the pictures!
The shoot first started off in my Aunt’s kitchen…I know, so sad…you all thought it was my gorgeous kitchen but alas all my money has gone to buying cake plates so I decided to ask my Aunt if I could use her house since it is perfectly done in everyway.
Then we headed outdoors to shoot in front of the gazebo that my uncle custom built…how cute is it?!?
Lastly we went to a part of the garden that was a little unkept (which normally never happens since my aunt is a fabulous gardener), but lucky for us it was and it was perfect for this last cake.
The last photo I leave you with gives you a little insight into my new branding from Karrie Pyke Designs! I absolutely love my new logo and a new website and blog design are on their way too!
I would love to hear what photo you like the best! Happy weekend!
