Small, backyard celebrations have officially become my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that with this one every detail was so beautiful, and the couple are actually good friends of ours. Plus, holy crap are they photogenic together! And as an added bonus….man can they dance! Gotta love a cowboy wedding. ;)
As this couple was flying in from across the country, we had scheduled the shoot for later in the week….well that didn’t work. With winds of over 50mph predicted we had to move the shoot for the day they flew in. So after getting up in the middle of the night to catch their plane, and then traveling all day…they got to take photos! This sweet couple didn’t miss a beat though and I’m so happy we squeezed in this gorgeous shoot!!
I swear this wedding was designed with a photographer in mind. There were so many sentimental details and personal touches. From the hand-me-down pearls, the wedding dress worn by both the bride’s mother and grandmother, the wedding arch the couple made out of horse shoes (both are farriers), and the buckskin dress with beads passed down the generations. Everything had a story….and so much love.
There’s a reason why my website hasn’t had any updates as of late…..and here he is. Oliver Clay, born Feb 13th. The poor little guy has been subjected to multiple shoots already; I’ll admit, I’m a little obsessed. :) Weddings season starts for me next month, but for now, I’m just soaking up time with my little man….
I love doing shoots with this girl! Not only is she gorgeous, her style is right up my alley. Free people, the palomino and a little cowboy….the makings of a fabulous shoot!
