Erica and Keith were pretty nervous before we started their engagement session but as with any of my couples, we took the time to walk around, do some warm up shots and play with their adorable doggo Cooper who was along for the shoot! I would says their photos are anything but awkward! In fact, I would says they are pretty uber romantic! That sunset, her dress, they way he looks at her, AND a doggo! Uggg, Its all too much! I can already envision the stunning shots we are going to get at their Castle in the Clouds wedding next August.
The off season is bittersweet. It’s nice to be able take a step back and relax but after about 2 weeks, I am missing wedding season already lol. So I am really happy when a group of creatives get together for styled shoots and invite me along! I always learn something new from working with other people and it give me a chance to try creative fun artistic shots in a controlled environment. Plus, I make more friends! Woo Hoo!
This was an amazing season! All of our weddings were beautiful and all of our couples were so fun and wonderful to work with! We shot in a wide variety of venues and many different styles of weddings, it’s beautiful to see everyones own personality come through on their wedding days. On a more personal level I felt myself grow this season professionally. I stepped up and became a leader, in my photography and as my decision to officially start a business under my own name. I have been shooting weddings for years now but mostly for other people under their business names. Going out on my own has been equal parts scary and exciting at the same time. I was surprised that finally deciding to go out on my own was a confidence booster for me. Actually telling myself everyday “I can do this” has been such a positive impact on my day to day happiness. Not to mention that I am doing what I love! To celebrate the end of the season I have picked some of my favorite moments from this year for this post. Enjoy!
