There’s always a little bit of a struggle doing an engagement in the dead of winter. There’s a lack of color because we’re missing the leaves and the grass and the greenery! However, it’s not impossible to have a great shoot in the middle of February and Brandon and Meghan’s shoot is proof of that! I drove up to my home town a week ago and captured these portraits for this newly engaged couple. I’ve known Meghan her entire life and it seems so WILD to me that she’s going to be a WIFE!! I remember growing up and thinking that she was so much younger than me and she was!
However, I’ve been married for almost ten years and so I guess it’s actually not that crazy that little Meghan Beasley is getting MARRIED! I’m just having a hard time wrapping my mind around how fast life is flying by! Michael and I couldn’t be more excited for Brandon, Meghan and their entire family! We grew up being incredibly close to Meghan’s parents. Todd and Laura are like family to us in so many ways and we’re so happy for them that they are gaining an amazing new “son” in Brandon. He’s kind, polite, he loves Meghan and he fits into the family beautifully!!
During their shoot, we had moments of almost being up to our ankles in mud but it was worth trekking all over the farm. We used the wide open fields, a quaint (rickety) old bridge, silos, dead grass and more to make this shoot happen! I’m so proud of these wintery images and I cannot WAIT to photograph these two on their wedding day! Meghan, you’re going to be the most gorgeous bride!! That model face!! whew! Keep scrolling to see what I mean!!! ….
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!!
