have been many moments in my business where I have made some amazing connections. It’s just crazy how the internet works! Meredith started following my blog years and years ago because I had taken some pictures of a family that we’re mutual friends with. At the time, that little shoot didn’t seem like a big deal at all…. however, I had no idea how God was going to use it years down the road. Meredith kept following the blog and we made a connection through our mutual friend, Kim and before I knew it, I received the “Ah! I’m engaged!” email from Meredith.
She was so excited and so was I! We were finally going to meet!! Not only were we going to meet, but I was going to shoot her engagements AND her wedding day!! All of this happened because she saw a simple blog post several years ago. I truly believe that God orchestrates beautiful connections in our lives all of the time and I’m so thankful for this one. Aaron and Meredith are an incredible couple…. so sweet and genuine. I almost feel guilty that I get to work with such amazing people!! :) After spending an evening walking through the streets of downtown Lexington and shooting their engagement portraits, it became very clear that we were a perfect match. I seriously cannot WAIT for their beautiful wedding day!! So enjoy meeting this sweet couple today through their engagement pictures and get excited for their wedding this summer!!
Aaron and Meredith, thank you for freezing a little bit!! After looking through your images, I would say that momentarily frozen toes were definitely worth it! You two look fantastic!! I can’t wait to see you again!One of my favorites from downtown! Gosh you two are cute! Love this one!! Looking good Aaron! He was such a good sport! And then we shot inside Pure Eats, a little burger spot in downtown Lexington!! It was nice to warm up for a few minutes! Oh this red door!! I loved it! Frozen feet = gorgeous portraits! Definitely a favorite! And then a few portraits at Big Spring Farm! Beautiful light! Meredith you’re gorgeous!!!! Meet Lucy!! She does the “head tilt” like Bokeh boy! :)
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!
