I love when I get to photograph friends in my studio! These three women are friends and co-workers. We had such a fun morning drinking champagne and getting all fancied up. We went a little bit glamour with sequins, edgy with leather and boudoir with lace and lingerie. Each woman has their own style and unique beauty – I loved capturing it all!
I love how much variety we got into just an hour long photoshoot in my studio! We got some beautiful bridal portraits with her blusher veil – I love that she wasn’t all in white for those shots and kind of incorporated in some of her wedding colors. She also brought in a scandalous romance novel that her fiance has customized for her. (The names/nicknames and locations can be customized so you have a romance novel just for you!) And of course we had to go with a strong red lip to match her romantic red lingerie!
Oh my gosh, I loved putting this post together. I have so many awesome memories from last year! As you can see, over half of these images are from wedding receptions. That’s when the alcohol flows and “proper wedding etiquette” flees…. my favorite time. I hope these happy weddings make you smile as much as I did.
Engagement sessions can be pretty awesome. I love getting to know each couple better before their wedding day and getting them behind my camera is the best way to do that! I help brainstorm with each couple to figure out a location and something to do that’s personal. The photos turn out so much more meaningful than if we had just gone to some random park. Plus, we get to choose the time of day, which isn’t always the case on your wedding. So, here is a collection of some of my favorite beautiful engagement photos from 2013.
Now this is what I really love about being a wedding photographer. Each wedding is like watching a movie. I get to see nervous excitement before the wedding, tears of joy and disbelief when couples see each other for the first time and of course, full on bawling during the ceremony! I just feel so lucky that I’ve had so many wonderful couples trust me with their most intimate moments.
Laughing Engagement Photos
If you’re wondering whether or not I would be a good fit for your wedding and engagement photos – I have one question for you: Do you like to laugh? I know, I’m sure there are 100 other questions The Knot and Martha Stewart would want you to consider, buut…. I think they’re trying way too hard. Life is too short for all of that stuff. Just grab your Love and enjoy life together.
