Trish & Travis's Jean Marcus Strole Review!!

Recommended Posts

Yeah we know Trish and Travis....how cheesy right? lol

 

ANYWHO! We wanted to take the time to put together a review for Jean Marcus b/c he TOTALLY deserves it!

 

First of all, for ladies who are wondering you pronounce his name (sean) Jean. I'm just clarifying this b/c unfortunately people in my party were calling him anything from Jean (like billy jean), Sean, John..and he even got a Steve one time! I'm still so sorry for this.

 

From the moment Brooke and I met JM I knew he would totally fit right in my crowd and that everyone would feel so comfortable with him. He flew in on Wed. and hung out with us and got to know everyone Wed. night. Thursday morning he got up bright and early to go with the guys for their fishing trip. All of the guys raved about him (yeah..GUYS raving about a photographer) and could not stop talking about all of the pictures he took. They also couldn't stop talking about him puking either..buuuuut! Thursday night he came with us for our rehearsal dinner...he was the only one on time...and was already snapping shots by the time we finally showed up. Throughout dinner he took tons of photos of the family and food. We instantly felt like he was a friend. He even got to witness me almost having a melt down due to a heated debate about the Phillies (my family) and the Red Sox (Trav's family). He gave us song suggestions (which we totally should have used if given the time!)and suggested that we do a First Look before the wedding which we were both so happy to have done! We offered drinks but he didn't want any b/c he wanted to be ready for Friday's events (the wedding). Friday afternoon he met up with me at the hair salon and snapped away nonstop until I was finished....I know he got some awesome black mailing photos in there somewhere during my hair teasing stage!!! He helped me get all of my stuff back to the room (even when his hands were full) and followed me up and down 3 flights of stairs as I frantically tried to find make up and a place to apply since my room was being cleaned and I lost my room key. Thank GOD for him, b/c while everyone was telling me how to apply the different make up I apparently spaced out b/c when it was time I had NO IDEA!! JM is an amazing listener and knew EXACTLY what the girls said so that I could actually put it on correctlyl!!!

If it wasn't for him we might not have had our rings for the ceremony (Check the safe to be safe!) and even hand delivered them to Travis as the ceremony was starting. After the ceremony he made sure our guests got the pictures taken quickly so that we didn't get off task and was SO quick to check for any closed eyes (DOH!) or wierd faces. Throughout the reception he didn't miss A THING!!! If he saw something going on or happening he was there snapping away!! He even got some of the guests to spell out our initials with their bodies...

He stayed with us after the official ceremony and made it to the disco for a bit. He made sure not to stay too late as he knew he had Brooke's wedding the following day.

With some changes to the itinerary we were not able to make it to the ruins the following Sunday and well...we know what happened to our Ruins trip..however he was so accomodating and even though we were flying out Monday..he totally agreed to make a run down there early Monday morning...and even Monday afternoon back at the resort.

 

Overall...he's just AMAZING LADIES!!! My guests loved him (all of the girls had crushes..haha!) and most importantly Travis and I loved him! He's extremely professional, funny, easy to be around, and extremely extremely talented!!! Although Travis will probably jump on here later to add to this (JM, he totally said he would get on here to write a review for you HIMSELF! That's saying ALOT coming from a Special Ops man!) I wanted to put in a review for him!!!

 

We have already recommended to about 5 people...2 of whom are not even in relationships and getting married yet..and I KNOW many of my guests have told me they will want his INFO for wedding pics.

He's totally underpriced for the amount of work he puts into making sure your pictures/wedding/etc are perfect!

 

Sooooo basically...Jean Marcus Strole is the SH*T! If you haven't booked a photographer yet....he's your man!

I totally agree with every single word Trish has said about Jean-Marcus. He was absolutely amazing!!! AMAZING!! He totally fit in with our group as well, and like Trish said, he was called many different names other than his own and never said anything about it...although I made sure to correct everybody, haha! He was snapping away during every moment from the time I was at the salon, me getting dressed, ceremony, dinner, reception, and until we took over the lobby bar after the ceremony officially ended. I know we had so many amazing pictures and I cannot wait to see them and share with everyone else. It is totally worth bringing in a photographer instead of using the resort one, and I TOTALLY reccommend Jean-Marcus. I actually had guests asking about him and how they could reccommend him (as well as Tammy Host for a TA!).

Ladies, for those of you who have booked him, you will have the most amazing time with him and the most fabulous pictures. For those of you who have not booked photog yet, Jean-Marcus is your man!!!!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
