So by now you all know how much I love a good long veil, so I don't think you will be surprised at all by the fact that the first portrait I am sharing from my styled shoot down in Virginia includes this gorgeous veil swoop! But a veil swoop is just kind of meh if it doesn't have a couple like Jenna + Phil amidst it. These two were absolutely magical in front of the camera!!⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Styled Shoot Coordinator: @klaynestyled⁠⠀ Wedding Portfolio Specialist: @dreamteamacademie⁠⠀ Event Management: @bluetrailproductions⁠⠀ Venue: @mountidafarm⁠⠀ Planner: @bluesapphire_events⁠⠀ Rentals: @nancesrusticrentals⁠⠀ Florist: @your_signature_designs⁠⠀ Adotable Animals: @caspca⁠⠀ Bakery: @albemariebakingco⁠⠀ Invitations: @okotaweddings⁠⠀ Pie Illustrations: @thingsunseendesigns⁠⠀ Shoes: @shop.kaileep⁠⠀ Jewellery: @darethcolburnedesigns⁠⠀ Calligraphy: @writelizwrite⁠⠀ Hair Stylist: @styledforelegance⁠⠀ Make-Up Artist: @enlightenedstyles⁠⠀ Bridesmaids Dresses: @bellabridesmaids⁠⠀ Men's Attire: classictuxedos⁠⠀ Styling Mat: @lindalestudios⁠⠀ Alterations: @faribabridal_alterations⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Bride: @jennarosityllic⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #sbeachphoto #stephaniebeachphotography #sbbride #sbweddings #stephaniebeachbride #stephaniebeachweddings #sbcouple #stephaniebeachcouple #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #findthelight #lovethelight #myhappyplace #styledshoot #klaynestyled #Virginiaweddings #vabride #countrywedding #rusticwedding #veilswoop #bridalveil #longveilsarethebestveils

i am a suspicious person i find it distinctly hard to trust and am really good at finding evidence that people are not trustworthy hypervigilant to the extreme with an affinity for details and a rainman-like memory i catch inconsistencies easily and use them to keep my distance even from those close to me because while i know i can handle most anything and fear doesn’t drive with me anymore i do not want to be blinded i do not want to be surprised ever again and so i build collections of little incongruencies keeping track of the ways those close are likely to betray me yep this i do without much thought it just seems to be happening in the background always under the busyness of my day so practiced at this point i don’t even have to pay attention to it to ensure the program is still running and some days i forget to remember i am not safe i forget my evidence-collecting and relax into connection sweet her kind eyes his arms strong and then it happens the thing that reminds me of the thing i got hurt by most the thing that my anxiety runs on and i am gone and the file cabinet of missteps comes front and center and begins to read itself to me so loudly so rapidly breath escapes me and in moments i lose all ability to look at anyone as anything but the enemy and this unfortunately yet understandably tends to have the very thing i am fearing happen most easily because how do you treat someone who is looking at you like the enemy how do you engage with someone who is so far gone they are barely making sense putting words together all wrong well, us humans will tend to defend leave or do nothing also known as fight, flee or freeze and inevitably i feel turned on, let down betrayed or abandoned predictably i feel like no one will stick it out with me yes everyone will eventually leave but at least i knew this time at least i wasn’t blindsided this time you see i have all this evidence that this was gonna happen and so the cycle continues and so we re-create our woundings until… it gets so bad or so obvious that these are patterns things are repeating and the common denominator is me and we choose to pay attention we choose to face the unfaceable rest 👇

so i found my second heart a woman showed it to me she showed it to me with a mirror and eyes so bright and sparkly and warm and celebratory i couldn’t help but feel how she was looking at this nearly forgotten part of me a part i had decided a long while ago was dangerous and dirty unknown as it should be i don’t know why i thought i could get away with never looking i can be sneaky in a way only sisters who know, know but she caught me at the edge the place i tiptoe to but never go over and she held me there with such care and with no needing it changed me in the core kinda way you know the ways where you get a new normal and it spills out effortlessly into everything after all i now know i have a second heart and i am never one to waste a resource so precious a place where love insists on living even when i cannot see even when i refuse to let it breathe it comes through as love is meant to do ❤️ @EmilyJoyRosen @the.secret.keepers @the.empowered.woman @eatingpsychology #secretkeepers #couragmylove #justwakingup #healinghearts #findthelight #woundsintowings

Quando la scienza e la logica vengono schiacciate dall’irrazionalità si ritorna sempre un po’ nel romanticismo, come in un dipinto di Caspar David Friedrich... #romanticismo #decadentismo #viandantesulmaredinebbia #1800s #2019 #december #lake #cercarelasperanza #findthelight #nohate #nohaters

Part 1 - During the darkest hours and shortest days of the season, find the light. Whether it be with a cozy fire in a fireplace, twinkling lights on a tree, fresh powder on a slope, a hug and a smile from someone you love, or a phone call with an old friend, find it. Find the light, let it fill you up, and then share it with those whose light is dim. . Part 2 - If you’re finding that you don’t have enough time to get IT ALL done, then don’t do IT ALL. Give up the extra things that are weighing you down and find that holiday feeling again - that feeling of excitement and wonder and peace. . Part 3 - Find the light, find the peace, and then share it with those in need. .

So about last week and the trip to Virginia --- well it was primarily for a conference, but I also took part in an awesome Styled Shoot full of some talented vendors and gorgeous models! It was a little different than styled shoots I have done in the past as it was filled to the brim with photographers who were all shooting 4 different wedding themes with multiple couples in each theme. It was like a controlled chaos as we shot the various looks and of course all of the pretty details that you know I love!!!⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ I honestly don't know what was my favourite theme, but 1950s is a real contender! And this stunning bouquet from @sarenfloraldesigns was such a great fit!!⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Styled Shoot Coordinator: @klaynestyled⁠⠀ Wedding Portfolio Specialist: @dreamteamacademie⁠⠀ Event Management: @bluetrailproductions⁠⠀ Venue: @mountidafarm⁠⠀ Planner: @simplyperfecteventsva⁠⠀ Rentals: @brideandjoyrentals⁠⠀ Vintage Car: @albemarlelimousine ⁠⠀ Florist: @sarenafloraldesigns⁠⠀ Jewellery: @darethcolburndesigns⁠⠀ Furs: @sissilydesigns⁠⠀ Rings: @emiconnerjewelry⁠⠀ Calligraphy: @millercalligraphy⁠⠀ Gifts: @marigoldgrey⁠⠀ Hair & Make-Up Artist: @nicolelaughlin_mua⁠⠀ Bridesmaids Dresses: @bellabridesmaids⁠⠀ Men's Attire: @classictuxedos⁠⠀ Styling Mat: @lindalestudios⁠⠀ Alterations: @faribabridal_alterations⁠⠀ Bride: @_baileyleah_ ⁠⠀ Wedding Party: @officially.thatchris @mitch_mann8 @jaybaybugg @rva_modeling @ottbs4ever @sarahkrycinski⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #sbeachphoto #stephaniebeachphotography #sbbride #sbweddings #stephaniebeachbride #stephaniebeachweddings #sbcouple #stephaniebeachcouple #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #findthelight #lovethelight #myhappyplace #styledshoot #klaynestyled #Virginiaweddings #vabride #1950stheme #1950swedding #detailsdetailsdetails #intsallinthedetails

They say light travels faster than anything in the world. But before light, there was darkness, waiting for the light to finally catch up. #yourtimewillcome #findthelight

Dare Day 7 of #decemberlight Looking outside as I made my second cup of coffee this morning, I knew I had to act quickly. Slipping into nearby footwear, I grabbed my camera. When I got back inside, my husband questioned my outfit choice of a robe and snow boots. I replied that if I had taken the time to change clothes I would have missed the moment. Morning light changes from dramatic and breath-taking to drab and ordinary in seconds. It struck me that I have spent much of my life hesitating. I worry what people will think. What will happen if I... What will happen if I don't... Sometimes things work out. And sometimes I have missed the moment. One of my resolutions is to dare more. Dare myself to do things. Say things. Be things. Life is short. I'm reminded this over and over. I don't want to miss moments and live in regret Woo! Soul-search Sunday! #decemberlight @heychookooloonks #findthelight #findyourjoy
