Within minutes of walking up to a new couple, I can tell that we are truly a great fit. This was especially true with Hunter and Leah. It was border-line raining and we knew that we were taking a big chance still following through with their engagement session despite the forecast. They were so relaxed. I can’t explain how wonderful it is to work with couples that fully trust us. Leah found us years ago when I photographed her friend Katie’s wedding and she has been following along ever since.
Hunter started a new job the week following the shoot and so we made it a priority to get their session done rain or shine and it was worth the risk! Yes, it started pouring at the end, but we had a plan! We used the front porch of a cute historic front porch for the end of their shoot and it worked perfectly!!
We loved having some time to get to know these two and hear about their story and wedding plans. They spent the weekend doing “all things wedding” related and they kicked it off with a beautiful, summery session on the campus of the VMFA in downtown. Hydrangeas were blooming and Leah’s blue dress popped off of the bright neutral buildings!! Everything went perfectly…. even when they arrived in their second outfits and the rain started to fall. We saved the cute covered porch for last and that was a perfect decision!! I loved how these turned out and it makes me so excited to capture these two on their wedding day!!!
Enjoy my favorites from this casual, relaxed engagement session at the museum!!!
Leah and Hunter, thank you for trusting me and for also bringing us the sweetest gift for baby #4! You are so thoughtful!!!!
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!
