This past year I made the shift to go more commercial with my photography business, and I was so fortunate to work with some great companies right away….Claim Post Design Co being at the top of the list. If you know me at all, you know I love jewelry…..and these guys have some of the best! I was drooling this entire session….😍
Amidst the fall shoot craziness, I was asked by Wrangler to shoot some images for their holiday campaign. It was such a fun (and somewhat challenging, haha) project to work on. I say that only because the images were all about flannel lined…sherpa….looking cozy, etc….and it was August. In Arizona. 😂 Oh, and we were in a crazy heat wave….it was 100 degrees when we shot these. I had to take breaks for my cheeks to not be so red and for the sweat to stop running down my back. Also, to get the right light, I had maybe 40 minutes a day to shoot. All that being said, these images are some of my all time favorites.
I was pretty excited when Danny said he needed some photos for his album that’s being released. I threw all sorts of ideas at him and despite it being early morning, he still rolled with them all. Such a talent, and an even better guy.
When you get the chance to do a bridal shoot with a gorgeous horse involved, you don’t hesitate. How Kasey rode in that dress is beyond me….but I’m so glad she did!
There couldn’t have been a prettier day for this adorable couple’s wedding. Set at the lovely American Ranch, every detail was picture perfect; making it such a fun wedding to capture. And that gown…..it doesn’t get better!
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.
