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:)
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!!
