Don’t Call It Cake & Easter

cake1So I’m going to be a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding in May and one of my duties is to look for quirky wedding photos as examples to show the photographer. This of course required a new Pinterest board! Well the other day a photo wandered into my inbox that I thought would be perfect to add. Little did I know this would spark the beginning of a new artistic internet adventure. That photo led to another photo which led to even more wedding related photos, but I slowly found myself not paying attention to people anymore. Wedding cakes were stealing the show. Actually I felt wrong calling them cakes, they were works of art! Imaginative, beautifully handcrafted, ornate, luscious, over-the-top, spunky, vivacious, delicate, delectable… all of these descriptions were flowing through my mind.

At first I would just add them to my Artsy Stuff board, but increasing cake numbers demanded their own platform. So I present to you Not Your Average Cake! It’s not something I would have created normally, but now I think I’ll be taking “cake breaks” every now and again.

What do these stunning cakes have to do with Easter you ask? Absolutely nothing. Although I highly encourage the eating of cake on said day (or any day for that matter). Easter was last weekend and I wanted to share with you some moments from mine. My church White Chapel, had it’s third Easter Sunrise Service on the beach. It’s always such a beautiful and humbling affair and I’ve been honored to take pictures at each service. This one was particularly special because two family members were baptized. The water was surprisingly warm, but the waves weren’t what you would call baptism-friendly. Here’s a video of with pictures of the service. Most of them were taken by me.

Happy Easter! I know I’m a day late, but I was busy enjoying my Easter Sunday. It was a wonderful day spent with friends and family and a cheesy movie or two. One of the top highlights though was the Sunrise Service that my church, White Chapel Church of God, had on the beach. We live in Florida so why not take advantage of it. It was beautiful. There were hundreds in attendance, people of all ages were baptized, and I had the pleasure of documenting it all with my Nikon D3000. You can view my favorite shots in my Behance Portfolio. By the way, I’ve been attending White Chapel for about a year now and I love it. The people there are warm and friendly and genuinely care about each other and the community. We have lots of activities every month, so if you’re ever in the South Daytona area stop by and pay us a visit. We’d love to meet you! Enjoy the pictures!
