You want to know what I love? I love it when couples do something unique for their engagement session! Not only do I love it when they select unique locations and ideas for their shoot, I also love it when these ideas and locations have sentimental value. Candi emailed me and shared her engagement session idea, and I loved it. Her family has a long history of working for the railroad. For generations, this industry has been a part of her family’s livelihood and a huge part of their story as well. It was a perfect idea to do their shoot at the Virginia Transportation Museum in Roanoke, Virginia. Candi’s cousin let us into the museum and gave us some behind the scenes access to historic engines, and it was so cool to see these massive machines up close and personally!
Ted and Candi started their session at the museum and then we headed down the road to a rail yard for even more access to old, vintage trains! It was so much fun getting to do something new for their shoot, but what I really loved the most was getting to spend time with these two and hearing their story!
Ted and Candi currently live out in Portland, Oregon! Talk about a long flight! They came home for the holidays and it was a perfect time for their shoot. Candi and Ted’s energy, sweet spirits, and love for one another made their shoot such a dream!
They were both ready to throw in the towel in the dating realm and then they found one another. At the perfect time, they found their soulmate. It’s obvious when you’re around these two that they are an amazing pair. It was an honor to be a part of their engagement session, but it will also be such an honor to be a part of their wedding day! It will be here before we know it and we can’t wait!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
