is what I like to call a “Heavy Load” for the blog. Everyday there is going to be a full shoot posted of some kind… mostly engagements…. and it’s A LOT for the blog to handle! So the right side of my brain is saying “No, post more! The light was pretty and the poses were fun!” but the left side of my brain is saying “Technically, there would be too many kilobytes to process if I posted everything I wanted to”. Unfortunately, after a discussion with my hosting company, I have to listen to my left brain this week. The last thing I have time for is an overloaded server! So enough nerd talk! Let me introduce you to this fabulous couple!
Jameson and Lauren met me last week for their engagement session and let me just say this….they. are. awesome. I love meeting couples for the first time… especially when I already know we’re going to be a great fit. Lauren and I have been emailing for quite some time and I know she cares so much about the photography for her wedding day. So of course, she was well prepared for her engagement session as well! Their outfits were AWESOME… the location was AMAZING and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! Gorgeous! We swatted away some flies but hey, I’ll take on some flies in order to get some incredible images! Lauren asked me about shooting at Rosewell Plantation and since I had never been there before, I was all for it. I’ll admit, I read that she mentioned something about “ruins”… but it didn’t really register with me how AWESOME this was going to be until we got there and saw the brick remains of a 4 story plantation home!!! AHHH!!! It was so epic…. (and I don’t ever use the word “epic” because I feel like you have to be in a boy band to use that word)….. but that’s just how cool this place way! I loved my time with this sweet couple and I couldn’t be more excited for their wedding! They are literally just as sweet as they look in these images! Enjoy my favorites!!!Love this:) Lauren I’m so jealous of your dress collection!! Whew!!!! Stunning!! You’ve got some beautiful eyes girlfriend! Loving the boots! Perfect example of “coordinating” but not “matching”! Loved these blues! Oh hey 400 year old stump!… you made a GREAT prop! And here she is!!!! GAH!! Seriously, how awesome is this? They should totally make this a wedding venue! Love it! Wowsers! New favorite right here!!!
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!
