so many times before but it’s really the strangest thing to email with brides for MONTHS and never meeting them face to face until their engagement! I felt like a knew Emily already and it only took a matter of seconds to realize that I was working with yet another wonderful couple!! David and Emily have an incredible story. After several years of dating, these two have NEVER lived in the same location. Their whole relationship is long distance and so as you can imagine, they are THRILLED to be getting married next year and FINALLY be together… permanently!! While long distance is hard (Michael and I were
long distance for a couple of years), it makes for GREAT engagement sessions! These two don’t get to see each other ALL day EVERY day and so they really enjoyed their time together in front of the camera and it shows!!! They are one happy couple and I’m so glad we had a beautiful November evening for their eshoot! It became a little chilly towards the end but they stuck it out and we were able to capture some pretty awesome portraits! David and Emily, you two are so much fun!!! I enjoyed my time with you and your wedding can’t get here fast enough!!!! Enjoy your blog post!! xoxoI have a thing for big trees… Emily you’re so cute! See what I mean? Cute! Niccceee FAVORITE! Hey you guys, you’re getting MARRIEDDD!! Woohoo! Love this portrait! aww… And a little hokie love…
When we first decide if we’re a good fit with our potential KJ Couples, we’re looking for a few things…. one of those things is that this couple keeps joyful! We’ve found over the years that couples what take themselves super seriously aren’t always the best fit for us! We love it when couples let their guard down and allow us to get to know them during their engagement session.
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.
