Our Trip to Starkville, MS – Alexandria Wedding Photographer

boarding

One of the benefits to having a wife that has family all across the country is that you get to visit different places, see different things and experience different environments that you wouldn’t ordinarily find yourself in.

I’m also finding out that with our two boys and at the age they are at now I’m finding it harder to get away and take pictures of some of the places we are visiting like I used to. Don’t get me wrong I’m adapting but it hasn’t been one of my more fluid transitions ;-).

With all that being said I’ve started packing differently when it comes to my film cameras. Currently my cameras of choice are my Hasselbald 500cm and my trusted Contax T2. I hardly shoot enough of the T2 but every time I get images back from the lab I’m always amazed at how well it does.

Pre Thanksgiving this year we got to visit family in Mississippi for a country chic wedding that happen to to place on an amazing farm, Waldrop Farms to be exact. They don’t have a website but you can find them in Starkville, MS home of Mississippi State University. I was able to shoot about a roll in the process of attending.

Sara, Banks, Reed we love you!

Go Dawgs!!!

Family Portraits – The Balicki Family – Alexandria, VA

Great neighbors are hard to come by, that’s why it’s always sad to see good neighbors move away. When Mike and I talked about photographing his family in the area before they left it was a no brainer. Had a good time shooing this family portrait session in our backyard. Wishing you and your family all the best!!

Life on square – The Lawals

I have been so slacking on keeping up with my blog posts this year. Super back logged with content, a lot of it personal that I’ll hope to share over the next couple of weeks. I guess a lot of good things have been happening to Akins Lawal Photography this year and I’m putting it out there that we all have guardian angels. We just have to open our ears and listen to them. Check out this patio fun with Laura and the boys. :)
