Sundays are for lazy work days, cinnamon rolls, bacon (lots of bacon) + Capitals hockey game 6!!!! πŸŽ‰ How are you spending your Sunday!? (And thanks to the best dad in this photo for upgrading my jersey from a children's size to a more official jersey - I'll be repping it all day long πŸ™ŒπŸ»)

My wedding season doesn't kick off for a few more weeks, but I'm cheering on each and every one of you who are photographing a wedding this weekend! Praying for no rain and no sore feet πŸ™ŒπŸ» #hopetaylorbrides #hopetaylorweddings

Today is the final day of my spring break and I'll be spending it cheering on Capitals hockey tonight πŸ”΄πŸ”΅ Any others Caps fans here!? Tomorrow, it'll be a FULL day in the office of recording for something I can't wait to share in the next few weeks! How will you be spending your weekend!? πŸ‘‡πŸ»
(Ps: this entire outfit is from @vicidolls + shoes from @fredmonkees!)

So, so thankful that I was able to take a few days off this week to celebrate spring break with my family. But, now I'm back to real life and I'm spending my entire 7 hour car ride home working hard on a BIG project that's coming up soon. And, in order to take those days off, I had to work DOUBLE time last week to set my business up for that time off including scheduling blog content, emails and social media as well as shooting, editing and uploading 5 client sessions on top of photographing 3 more and doing my typical weekly business tasks.
Something that I've always been passionate about is making sure that, in this creative industry, we don't over-glorify time off and "balance". Because, yes, those things are good and necessary and things that you should strive for - but we should never loose sight of the fact that good ol' HARD WORK is what allows your business to grow. Hard work is a GOOD thing. It is a requirement of being a successful business owner, and something that you should never feel guilty about. Hustle hard, girlfriend, because the hustle is REAL and entrepreneurship is HARD. But I'm cheering you on and working alongside you today - let's do this πŸ’ͺ🏻

There's a brand new engagement session on the blog!!! I just love spring engagements and Meagan and Justin's Fawn Lake session is full of so much joy. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding this fall! Link in bio to head to the blog post and see the full shoot! #hopetaylorcouples

Just a little peek at the pretty that happened today on Kiawah Island 😍 More soon! #hopetaylorseniors

Today on the blog I'm sharing my post processing secret weapon: the program that allows me to cull entire wedding days in LESS than one hour! Yes, you read that right. And, the best part is that I'm giving away a lifetime license for FREE to one photographer! Head to the blog at the link in my bio and prepare for your post processing workflow to change forever!
Photographers: do you currently use Photo Mechanic? What do you think of it? If you haven't used it before, what are your thoughts on today's post!? #hopetaylorweddings

Exploring my favorite place with my favorite people ❀️ (πŸ‘— from @vicidolls!)

For the most part, I'm taking a break from social media this week while I spend spring break with my family. But, I had to hop on to tell you that Katie's senior session just went LIVE on the blog! It's one of my new favorite shoots and you HAVE to come see 😍 Especially these outfits from @vicidolls paired with @fredmonkees jewelry! Link in profile! #hopetaylorseniors

So happy to be spending Easter + spring break with my family and Drew ❀️ Here's to a week at the beach starting first thing tomorrow, and to an amazing church service tonight at @visitlifepoint!

I think it's some type of unspoken rule that fluffy flowers and sparkly rings just belong together 😍 #hopetaylorbrides
