Yesterday I was supposed to photograph a wedding but the threat of inclement weather postponed it to the end of the month. I was stoked about having a snow wedding but not necessarily about the hour travel to it in these conditions so my dear friend Lindsey decided to spend the weekend “snowed in” with me and we got a little creative. For those of you who don’t know, I got married in June so I have a wedding dress + veil just sitting in my closet (luckily Lindsey’s size). I’m also obsessed with crafty projects so I had a few fake flowers in my craft room that I somehow managed to make into a bouquet. I’ve never done anyone’s makeup, either until yesterday. I figured with my artistic background I could do something decent enough for a last minute styled shoot.
Yes, Lindsey was freezing and yes, my sweet mother was throwing snow around so I could get a few good shots. Enjoy and stay warm this weekend!
Don’t get me wrong, I love using my artistic license to do something creative but when a client comes to me with a specific vision, I love every minute of it. April knew exactly what she wanted for her family session and it included “somewhere different”, a blue suit and fancy red dresses. I stumbled upon an old abandoned mill in Pine Level and knew it would be a new favorite spot. You can’t tell by the images but it was absolutely freezing and April and Logan did a great job hiding it (while I was cozy in my big coat and scarf behind the camera).
Enjoy. & Happy New Year!
TWENTY-SIXTEEN. Where do I even begin? I photographed nine weddings, countless engagements and some of the best families. I married the love of my life, completely re-branded and changed my business name and bought a house. I photographed my sister-in-law’s wedding, my cousin’s engagement and my very first proposal. I captured two sisters being proposed to at the same time and a pregnancy announcement on a boat. I teamed up with Kristan Osoria to create my first ever styled sessions as well as my dear friend Jordan to help launch her boutique, Bohuman. This year I booked close to thirty weddings including two destination weddings for next year. I am ecstatic about what I’ve accomplished so far and chose one hundred images from 2016 to sum up my year.
Bring it on, 2017!
