Fall is my favorite for multiple reasons, but one of the biggies is the beautiful buttery light it provides. The setting was nothing short of dreamy for this sweet maternity session. And like normal, their fur baby Maggie stole the show. I’ve never seen a Lab hesitant to walk in tall grass, but once she warmed up to the idea, there was no stopping her. 😂 Sticks had to be thrown really far to keep her out of the shot.
We had a typical early fall day in the southwest for these two…..insanely windy! Had it not been that they were driving up from the valley to do the engagement session, we would have definitely rescheduled. Luckily these two were insanely photogenic, so they would have looked good in any conditions. We did a combination of hiding from the wind, and then just embracing….and honestly I’m a little partial to the dramatic flare it adds.
If you’ve followed my work at all, you know I can’t resist a backyard wedding….when the “backyard” is a gorgeous lake in Northern Minnesota on the border of Canada, it honestly can’t be beat. This day had it all…beautiful setting, a little sun shower during the ceremony for good luck, and the sweetest couple around.
It was less than a year and a half ago that I was capturing this lovely couple’s wedding, and now they’ve added a precious baby girl to the family. These two are some of my favorite people and I’m so happy for them and their perfect little gomper. :)
I feel as though I’ve been buried in weddings since spring, so it’s fun to mix it up a bit and do a senior session. This sweet girl’s mom is a good friend of mine so I’ve known her since she was little; and I’d occasionally pick her up from elementary school, go get her hopped up on chai tea and give her back to her mom. :) She is such a beauty inside and out, making this session so stinkin’ fun to do.
Couples seriously don’t come any sweeter than these two! I’m so glad everything turned out so beautiful on their wedding day.
This wedding was everything an early summer wedding should be…..light, airy, and absolutely stunning. Not to mention the bride and groom are some of my absolute favorites. It made for such a fun wedding to photograph!
The spring/early summer wedding season has kept me insanely busy this year, and it’s reflected in my lack of posting. Now that I have a little breathing time, hopefully I can catch up a bit…..starting with this gem of a simple backyard wedding. Simple and sweet….just the way I like it.
They say rain is good luck on your wedding day….in which case, this couple is super lucky. :) Although not ideal conditions for an outdoor wedding, the gloomy skies at such a gorgeously green venue sure made for pretty photos!
Anyone who knows me, knows I will rarely speak highly of anything where it’s 100 degrees…..but this desert engagement session was absolutely dreamy. The Desert Botanical Gardens provided the most perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple’s session. The setting….that light….the couple….perfection. ❤
