Stacey Bode Photography » LIFE SHOULD BE PHOTOGRAPHED

Masthead header

Yesterday, I documented the creation of Wade’s second tattoo. He got a beautiful American traditional version of the lighthouse that’s in my hometown of Port Washington, WI. It’s a pretty special place since that’s where he’d wanted to propose. Sadly, it was closed for construction at that time. Womp, womp! We still love you, lighthouse! I’ll probably be getting a different version of it tattooed in the near future. Hey-o! Wade was a super champ during the process, and Charles at Only You Tattoo in Grant Park was fantastic. Now, I just have to stop accidentally punching Wade’s left shoulder. Sorry, babe!!

I adore working with this awesome family, and not just because they always include their furry pals in our photo shoots! But seriously, bonus points for doggie friends. We had a fun and relaxing shoot around one of my favorite Atlanta areas. This session of photo playtime was yet another reminder of why I love this city, and the sweet families who live here. YES!

AHHHHHH!!!! I have SO much to say about his post, but I’ll desperately try to be brief. Two of my dear friends got hitched, and it was INCREDIBLE! They called it the “non-wedding” because of how laid-back they wanted it to be. It was so daggum chill in the BEST ways. However, it was still as gorgeous, fun, and sweet as any wedding you could imagine. It’s also a bit of a surprise, so I have been way excited to share this amazing news through the photos. YESSSS! Jess and Rene, I love you guys. All the future happy days to you!!!!!

    Emily Smith - Love these great pics! Congratulations. Cake looks amazing. I am sure Rene will treat you and Rey as Queen and Princess! xoxoxo – Emily

I just might be trying to get caught up on posts that I’ve been wanting to put up for ages. Ahem. My friend and I even came up with a sarcastic hashtag just for me to use…#realtimestacey. One good thing about waiting a minute to share events is that I get to re-live them and remember all the special details and fun moments. Yes! Y’all, Katie and Jonathan’s wedding was daggum glorious. Their celebration was a real testament to the incredibly loving souls that they are. When I think of this wedding day, I feel such a rush of joy. A beautiful new beginning for a beautiful couple.
