me and said she wanted a magical wedding! She wanted it to be magical and whimsical! Brittnie and her mom met with me months ago and as soon as I sat down with them, I could totally see why Brittnie wanted a “Magical” wedding! SHE was magical! She seriously reminds me of a disney princess! The way she talks, how beautiful she is, her positive attitude… she’s just wonderful! How do I get to work with such fabulous brides? I have no idea! I’m just so thankful that I get to be a part of their big day in August. When I first met Brittnie, I asked about Austen and how they met. She smiled and said “Oh he’s my high school sweetheart”. And because I married my
high school sweetheart, I understood what all the smiling was about. It’s just so much fun to share with people that you have been in love with your husband since you were a TEENAGER in HIGH SCHOOL! Austen and Brit met at Spotsy High School and so they wanted to take their engagement pictures there. Now this was an interesting location for me to shoot but it was actually REALLY fun trying to find little nooks and crannies of great light and awesome backdrops! Who knew loading decks and dumpster areas were so photogenic! They reminisced about high school and Austen’s baseball days and we made our way around the campus. I’m glad they were able to have their portraits done in a space that reminded them so much of “them”. It was a scorching 98 degrees on Monday and so I’m SO impressed at what we accomplished! Enjoy my favorites and Austen and Brittnie, I cannot WAIT for your big day… I just know it will be nothing short of magical!!!Really, this is a loading dock for the trucks to bring in school lunches! Who knew it could make such pretty portraits! Those paint splatters make it look “magical”! :) GIRL! You’re beyond beautiful!!!!! Brittnie has the best jaw line… ever! I’m so jealous! And this was taken on a hose… haha whatever works! (and is teal!) LOVE! yessss… And just FYI…. 5 is their lucky number:) So I threw this one in here… ya know, for good luck:)
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
