The 3 Minute Workout That Had Us Wiped Out!

by Jody on June 30, 2009, posted in Uncategorized

Zach and I worked out for a total of 3 minutes, and we were sore for the next 4 days…

Yes, read it again…

You read it right…

No joke. :)

Are we that wimpy? Are we THAT out of shape? Heck no! We just had a good kick-booty workout. Yes, even in 3 minutes.

If you have tried everything to lose weight, or try and stay fit and nothing seems to be working and it’s hard to find that time every day to lose weight, then Burst Training might be for you (actually it’s for everyone, even kids, but this might be even more appealing to you).

Burst training is highly effective in burning fat (and keeping it off) and retaining lean muscle.

There is the myth out there that in order to have a good, healthy workout you have to be active for a certain period of time (e.g. half hour a day – or whatever). This isn’t necessarily true. What’s important is the quality of the workout – not the quantity.

Think of a cross country runners body that you see on the Olympics for example. They tend to be more thin and trim compared to track sprinter’s body (more muscle tone) – the sprinter’s workouts are based on the burst idea – work out for shorter spurts but with great intensity.

Under the encouragement from our friends, Nathan & Jenni Oates, Zach and I signed up to take their Burst Training that they lead, here in the Nashville area. You sign up, do sessions with them and then the coolest thing is THEY EQUIP YOU TO DO IT ON YOUR OWN, so you aren’t bound to paying a trainer or going somewhere every time you want to work out.

What are the hangups sometimes to working out?
1. Costs too much (gym membership, trainer, etc)
2. Have to actually GO somewhere to work out (gym, track, etc)
3. TIME!

Burst Training takes care of all of those worries, and you can do it on your own, in your own home!

To read more detailed information on how this workout works, visit Nathan & Jenni’s
Burst Training Blog Post. This method of working out has changed their lives.

Nathan is a certified personal trainer and is holding more Burst small-group training sessions. See the below flyer for info!

Friday Fun – Baseball and Ice Cream Faces…

by Jody on June 26, 2009, posted in Friday Fun,Personal Fun

One of the BEST things we love about our jobs is the couples who we meet and become friends with.

Take Chris & Holly for example… we met them over a year ago and waited with Holly as she waited for Chris to come back to the states after serving overseas, were SO excited when he was coming home safe & sound, have immensely enjoyed and participated in Chris’ movie quotes & jokes, and hip-hopped right along with Holly singing “Wild Thing” by Tone Loc (ok, Zach was doing the hip-hopping… Jody, not so much ;) . On their wedding day I think we were one of the most thrilled people to be at the wedding and celebrating their marriage! Ah, you two are the best :)

Anyway, this rad couple invited us to their rehearsal hang out at the Nashville Sounds’ Stadium. Even though we were invited as friends and not photographers we couldn’t resist bringing one of our cameras and snapping a few pictures :)



The trophy husband decked out to the nines!

Getting to know some of the bridesmaids! Aw yeah!
Zach, blog-stalker-turned-friend, Elaina (he he), new friend Katie & Jody

Playin’ some ball…

And for the kicker – Making faces in our ice cream and posing with it… scary, we know.. but yet, too funny… we all were laughing so hard!

Um, by the way… this last photo is a GREAT example of how NOT to use a 16-35mm… unless you want someone to look like they have a man-jaw, which is exactly what Zach was going for… *sighs* ha ha.



The Doing Social Media RIGHT seminar is being held THIS Monday and 10 more spots have been opened for a discounted rate!

Published! Her Nashville!

by Jody on June 24, 2009, posted in Published/Accolades

This month we have the privileged of once again being published in Nashville’s coolest women’s magazine – Her Nashville. The above image is from one of our Nashville weddings and this shot was taken at the Marriott West End, in Nashville, TN.

I’m telling you, that magazine is addicting! We love the look of it, the newer slick pages they have, and get this folks – the ads are so non-boring looking that I (Jody) actually look over them instead of avoid them like the plague! They have great articles and writers, and it’s just an enjoyable magazine all around.

Now onto the pictures!! Her Nashville featured the wedding of the lovely Lee & Elisabeth Cunningham.



Vendors featured in this spread:
Flowers by Rhonda with Rhonda Patton Weddings!

Fun fun! :)
