Sneak Peeks and Crazies : Atlanta, GA

Oh blog. How I have loved and missed you. :) Hey everyone! I apologize for the extreme lack of blog posts these last few weeks. Between photographing weddings, engagements, headshots and events, meeting with new clients, and fighting to keep my highest honors status for graduation, I have been swamped! The good part, though, is that I have a lot to share with you over the next few weeks, and there's much more to come. I still have 6 weddings left to shoot this year. Woohoo! Strap in for the ride, because it's going to be so much fun! And since I love you guys, here are a few sneak peeks I have to share.

And of course I couldn't post this on my blog without throwing some humor at you. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you, Matt Yung and Lauren Wright, AKA the CRAZIES!

Tales of Mere Existence: Running out of Gas

Trouble.

Hope.

Disappointment.

Stranded.

Help!

Dinner.

Dinner date.

Boredom sets in.

RESCUE!

One of my friends and faithful blog stalkers informed me today that it has been too long since I've posted on my blog, so I decided to share my weekend adventure with you guys. After shooting an incredible wedding with my friend Matt Yung on Saturday, I began to head home when I realized that I NEEDED to get gas. When I say NEEDED, I don't mean I had a spastic inclination to run to the gas station and top off my nearly full tank like most everyone else in Atlanta is doing every day. I mean I NEEDED gas or I wasn't going to make it home, so I pulled off of I-285 to look for a station. I drove for a few miles before I found a line for gas. I got in line, put my car in park and turned it off to conserve what little gas I had left. 45 minutes later, the line hadn't moved an inch, so I decided to hunt elsewhere. I was hopeful when I saw a sign for a Kroger gas station, so I pulled off of the main road to find it. When I reached it, I found out that both this station and my car were out of gas. There I was, stranded in the Kroger parking lot. So what did I do? What else would I do? I called for help, grabbed something to eat, then pulled out my camera and started taking pictures :) I hope this amuses you as much as it (now) amuses me!

What happens when you take this girl...

And this girl...

And add them together with 10 years of friendship?

Well, I can promise you one thing. Craziness is likely to ensue.

This humorous moment has been brought to you by Lauren and Emma of Lauren Wright Photography. Have a nice day :)

Do a little dance { Out takes and cameos }

And now, what you've all really been waiting for... my friends and I looking like total goobers! Having both Lisette and Emma at Ian and Jenna's wedding made for some really funny and awesome moments, and many of them ended up caught on camera!

First up, here's my wonderful and talented assistant Emma. This girl is out of this world. She's a dancer, actress, poet, photographer-in-training and seamstress. Here she is hemming one of the bridesmaids dresses.

I needed to test my light for family portraits, so Lisette stepped up on the stage... and made a really goofy face!

I am much better at demonstrating poses than describing them, so I often find myself in some crazy situations. Thanks, Lisette, for grabbing some of my favorite "in action" shots ever!

And now for the dancing. Be warned: I am not by any means a good dancer, as these photos clearly show, but I love to do it anyway!

I'll leave you with one more. I love this because right before Emma took the picture, Ian took off his hat and sat it on my head. It's definitely my favorite picture from the day. Just sayin' :)

The Lauren Wright Archives

It's amazing what you can find when you start cleaning. This morning I was visualizing what I want my closet to look like when it's clean (because I hadn't actually started cleaning yet. Haha!) when a box full of photos caught my eye. I had to chuckle at myself a little bit, because I have a million personal photos from the years before I became a photographer, and I've taken a grand total of about 5 since then. I really need to start taking more photos for myself. Anyway, those old photos sit in my closet, split between two boxes, waiting to be opened on some morning that I need an excuse not to clean. This was one of those mornings. I enjoyed looking through them so much, I decided to scan a few and share them with you. So ladies and gentlemen I present for your viewing enjoyment: a selection from the Lauren Wright Archives!

One of my distinguishing characteristics is that I have a huge smile. When I met Adrian Despres last week, he smiled and said, "Wow, you smile with ALL of your teeth!" I really can't help myself: the joy in my heart is written all over my face, and apparently it always has been. Check out this one!

Last but most certainly not least, here is a photo of me with my best friend of 15 years: my golden retriever named Whiskey. She was as much a part of my family as my parents and brother, because my parents bought her when I was a baby and I don't have a single memory from growing up that doesn't include her.

Dear Blog Readers

You, too, should have an apple computer, so that you can keep yourself from being bored on long, cross-country flights.

I love Photobooth ☺

XOXO, Easily Entertained Photographer

PS. For those of you who are wondering, I was listening to the Wicked soundtrack when these photos were taken. I can’t wait for it to come to the Fox Theater in October!
