Brandi and I worked at Walmart together. We have both moved on to better things, but I remember harassing her on a regular basis about letting me shoot her wedding. I don’t think she and Josh had picked a date at that point, but I was thrilled when she emailed me about engagement photos and photographing their upcoming wedding next April.
They’ve been engaged awhile, but let me just tell you, they are so cute together. He makes her giggle incessantly and I’m pretty sure she secretly loves it. I love being around people in love. And even better, I love having the honor of capturing it to share it with all of you.
I love meeting awesome people, and Auston is no exception. I usually don’t know what to expect beyond the short about me I ask people to fill out and what I get from our corresponding emails. But Auston opened her front door to greet me with the biggest smile I have ever seen. I kinda knew then that I had quite a jewel to capture.
We had a blast! Cute outfits, a new location for me, vintage stuff and beautiful light. It was awesome. Here are some of my favorites.
I love doing photos for fellow photographers. I know how it feels to not want to be on the other side of the camera. It’s scary and I am honored to have had that trust placed in me from several photogs that wanted me to photograph them. Lacey takes some awesome photos and certainly has a bright future ahead of her.
I had fun getting to know a little more about her at the shoot and what makes her tick. She has great ideas and really has a fun personality…and a gorgeous smile.
Ok, technically Payton is not a senior, but I thought it would be good to have this post in that category as well. Just wanted to clear that up.
Anyhoo, Payton and I went out on the hottest day of the year so far and found this awesome bamboo. I didn’t even know Kansas had bamboo. BONUS.
And really, I feel a little wonky calling myself a fashion photographer, up there in the tag title, but I’d like to think I’m pretty darn close. Of course, it helps that Payton totally has that rawr model look down pat.
Here are some that I just love. I just wanted to put these out there because this is the kind of shooting I really connect with.
I cannot tell you how much fun I had photographing Sarah and Ryan’s wedding. The location was perfect, (right up my alley, haha), the lighting was beautiful and the people were full of joy. Joy was just pouring from everyone. It was amazing. I could go on and on really, but here’s a slideshow of my faves. Put on some happy, romantic music and play that thing.
Sarah and Ryan, I cannot thank you enough for the trust you placed in me to capture your big day. Everything was beautiful and perfect and I couldn’t be happier to have had the opportunity. Love you guys.
