Somehow it has been over a month since I’ve shared my weekly random babble. How in the world? And what…its mid-April already? Ay-ye-ye! I know for those in the Midwest (like my fam) and other chilly parts of the country, winter is draaaaaaging on, but for me it has flown by just like that! The last few months have been filled with weddings, traveling, spring portraits, kitchen remodeling, and lots of visitors. Its been crazy, its been amazing, but I find myself looking forward to less travel, a quiet office, cooking in my kitchen, and hot summer days…aaaah yes. I’m sure I’ll be hating summer in…a couple weeks!

Lately I have been getting lots of people asking when I’m going to FINALLY share pictures of the completed kitchen remodel. I promise, it will be very soon! I have been working on the finishing touches before I took the final and official “after” pictures. This week I’m checking off the last task of hemming and hanging the curtains for the window. We’ll see how my sewing skills fair and if I can actually get this one done on my own.

Did you know my sister got married?? She did, and I was super thrilled to capture the day for her in our hometown in Wisconsin. It was a beautiful day, it was a day filled with lots of love, so much happy, it was a bit unconventional, but it was SO my hippie sister ♥ Love her and my new bro-in-law!

PINPINPINAnd this is me as the hippie photographer :)PIN

Oh yes I did: stayed up until 1am sewing my brother’s Boy Scout patches. I must befriend a good thimble for next time. Ooooowww, my fingers!!!

Currently: reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. You know I love those teenage zombie/vampire/monster love stories. I can’t resist! Just started it and love that I’ll have a movie to go see after I’m done. This means I finally finished (and LOVED) Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. Seriously good read and again, I’m excited that I have a movie to see for this one too! Hard to explain the plot of this one, but its about souls and the bodies being a “host” for the souls. Kinda end of the world-ish. Definitely a love story. And fun that it takes place in Arizona.

My current and next read…

Enjoy the rest of your week!

    Diana - I haven’t read the books, but I can tell you both movies are so great! Especially Silver Linings Playbook! BEST MOVIE EVER!


Allyson and Luis were married on 3.30.13 in their hometown of Yuma, Arizona at Allyson’s family farm. I had been so looking forward to their big day…a farm wedding, a beautiful couple, and add to it a bride that is a designer that you just know will put together a gorgeous day. From the smallest of details, Allyson planned the perfect day. Beautiful succulent details, lots of amazing DIY decor totally matching her style, fun entertainment for the guests, and on and on. I loved being a part of it all!

WINNER UPDATE: Random.org picked commenter #5: Debbie!!! And she even likes piggies! YAY :)

With all the work going on in our kitchen this month (remodeling, not cooking silly!), I figured it would only be fitting that I give away one of my favorite things in the kitchen!


Yep, that is a pig cutting board my friends. For those of you who don’t know, I had a serious OBSESSION with pigs when I was young. My room was decorated with pigs from floor to ceiling, I wanted a pig as a pet (my wish even came true for a short stint), and I decided I would be a pig farmer when I grew up. That was until I discovered what these pig farmers really did. eek! No! Now I opt to have random pig decor around the house, including this cute little guy that we received as a wedding gift.

So I hope you like piggies too! The winner will get their very own pig cutting board, or a hen or a plain old square cutting board if you must :)

When: You can enter now through Friday, March 22nd. The winner will be randomly picked and announced over the weekend!
Who: Anyone and everyone that loooves Emily Snitzer Photography, and lives in the continental US with a valid postal address.
How: All you need to do is comment below on this blog post, and be sure to enter your email address. Don’t worry, your email will only be visible to me. Easy beans, peeps!
