I’ve got a date tonight!

Personal

I am a huge proponent of online dating. When you’ve seen as many weddings and heard as many love stories as I have, you find out really fast that online dating is awesome and effective.

Last January I found a particular specimen online and thought to myself, “Hmmm… he looks interesting.”  I clicked on him as a ‘favorite’ and accidentally alerted him to the fact that I had been window shopping and found something I liked. “It doesn’t matter,” I thought, “I don’t have any pictures up and my profile is pretty sparse and snarky so he won’t think twice about it.”  Turns out he did. We chatted and agreed to meet at Tinto one year ago today. He declined any pictures of me before our first date. I will always consider that incredibly gutsy.

It was the best first date ever. Not just of my life but I’m pretty sure it was the best first date ever in the history of dating.

Tonight we’re revisiting Tinto for dinner. Maybe we’ll luck out and get the same table we had last year.

Feel free to send gifts of flowers, cheese, and adventures my way. After all, I turn 30 this month and isn’t that supposed to be a big deal? Doesn’t that mean I’m, like, a big kid now? (I see you snickering over the short jokes. Bite me.)

Wedding season is upon us! May is officially my busiest month this year and for good reason – everything is lush and green. My daffodils are gone but irises are coming out and the whole area just breathes. Hopefully we’ll have more than a handful of days of that spring perfection before balmy summer comes along. And my couples hope so too. You’ll be seeing some incredible weddings and engagement sessions this season – I’ve got them all over Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. And that’s only in the next two months!I’m starting this month strong at the Broad Street Run. Are you going? Perhaps you’ll see me there ...

Here's a deal for you…My grandmother in Scotland is very sick and probably won't be around much longer. I'll be flying out to see her this Sunday. When I get back I'll need to turn right around and fly to Connecticut to shoot a wedding on Halloween. This means I'll need to be away from my sweet pooch for about 2 weeks. I just hate to board her so I want to offer this awesome one-time deal: a Lindsay Docherty Photography Photoshoot plus a DVD of the images in exchange for looking after Emma for me while I'm away. This is an $875 value ($325 session fee + $550 DVD). Details on Emma: She's a 5 year old Jack Russell / Beagle mix. 16 lbs. S ...
