Samantha and Tim Married | Mystic Wedding by Heidi Hanson Photography

Samantha and Tim were married at the historic Pequot Chapel in New London on a gorgeous August day. Samantha had one photo she envisioned during the ceremony, the first kiss with the guests in the background. And I was so glad we were able to make that happen. Their reception was held at the beautiful, rustic Silver Oak in Mystic. It was a fun day for all their family and friends who celebrated.

Dimi and Nick a Seaside Affair by Heidi Hanson Photography

In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours.
In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”
Maya Angelou

To say that Dimi and Nick were one of my favorite couples is an understatement!  They are fun, funny and perfect for each other.  The way they look at each other, you just can instantly feel the love between them, it gives me goosebumps!   Plus they are so easy to photograph.

Their wedding was so pretty and a ton of fun – here are a few of my favorite images from their big day:

Tales of a Tired Photographer | Heidi Hanson Photography

I’ve been trying to figure out a name for my personal segment on my blog for quite some time now.  I went through the Crazy Chronicles, Diary of a Deranged Lady…etc. But I think Tales of a Tired Photographer is probably the best.  This segment is going to be once a week (believe me there’s enough stuff for me to post daily), but I will not bore you with my ridiculous antics on a daily basis.  

So a lot of you that have been following me, especially on Facebook, have mentioned that I should be writing a book for all the silly, crazy things that happen in my life, you know the types of things that I just can’t make up.  The things my kids say or do, that really are kind of unpredictable.  Well sadly, this blog (at least today’s is all about ME)! 

This past week I had some doozies! We have this little blue suitcase of fun things that the kids get to pick things out of after they’ve finished their homework and cleaned their rooms after school.  So last week they picked quiet time in their room with Mommy which turned into a makeover – their favorite thing to do to mommy!  Fast forward to me looking like Tammy Faye Baker and it is time to take everything off.  Well lesson learned do not put the nail polish remover next to the makeup remover.  Can we say burn much?  Wow, the removal of glitter eye shadow with nail polish remover on the eyes, don’t get me wrong, it totally works, but ow!  It freaking burns, like really bad!!

The other day as I’m running around trying to get my kids ready for school, and me ready for my morning run.  I can only find one running sneaker. Literally how does that happen?  Sometimes my dog takes shoes when guests pop over, not to eat them, but just to greet folks, it’s kind of cute, but at the time I was so annoyed.  Then I remembered that I had my son bring his laundry down to the washing machine the day before.  Sure enough I opened up the door and there it was.  So now I have one really pretty clean running shoe, which was soaking wet because I wasn’t going to have time to dry it before I ran!  

Yep so so that’s me, in a nutshell.  Stay tuned for more tales of a tired photographer.
