{The one} where we get lit…

Michelle had contacted me last fall about a Haute & Hitched session for her and her hubby.  They had eloped to Vegas shortly before his departure to Iraq- and did not get many images while in Vegas.  So, for our shoot, we decided to wait till after all the craziness of the holidays.  It ended up to be a gorgeous day {perhaps a tad cold if you were in a strapless dress}.  We had such a great time walking, photographing and chatting, we ended up moving to a different site- and leaving keys, sweaters and phones behind. So, about 15 minutes later {when we realized what we had forgotten}, we wnt sprinting back to were the stuff was- only it was not there! Needless to say, panic set in for me- I dont want a client to lose anything on a shoot! I felt awful! Well…that is until this really nice man walks up and says “are you missing some keys and a phone”? YES!YES! So, this awesome guy had picked them up and turned them into the restaurant- assuming someone had walked off and forgotten them.

Of course, I am standing here with a woman in a white strapless dress, and a guy in dress slacks {not typical Saturday attire for downtown Jax} so the nice man asks me what we are up to.  After explaining he tells us he works for a new bar , and when we finish to head on down.  Now, a bar in downtown kind of scares me for photographs- but I am always up for a challenge, and it appears so were the Michelle & hez.  So, after we finished we headed down to the bar- and found it to be so FABULOUS! Lit, an uber chic bar in downtown, was a the perfect spot to finish up our session.  The brick wall was as yummy as could be, and that couch- well, they were lucky that I did not walk off with it!  But more than that, the staff was so awesome! The bouncer, John, who found all our stuff introduced us, and even gave Michelle and Hex passes to come back later that night as VIP’s!  Seriously, this place is so cool- so if you are out for a hot date night, get by there! Its definitely worth the trip! Thank you also to Floriade for the always amazing bouquet- as usual Tuffani rocked it!
