Thanks for braving the wind. dark clouds. and the impending storm with me to get these. You guys rocked your session…even if it felt like you were in a wind tunnel!

It has been quite the effort tonight to choose which of this fabulous couple’s images to post. I want to post so many more, but deadlines are upon me and I am working like a mad woman, pregnant and all, to get all done. Did I just say that out loud? Yes, for those who haven’t noticed, I am expecting. AND, at this number, that “bump” happens to present itself a bit faster than before. Regardless, I wanted to share a little slice of each “type” of image from their session. It truly was amazing…the light, my new found favorite place, the colors, and ofcourse, them! They are both very good looking peoples, and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding here shortly. SO, here is just a little sampling of what’s to come, you two. ENJOY….

PS. Jeff, you’re photogenic…just saying. Heather, you have the most amazing eyes I have ever seen. AND, I like starting sentences with and, And I told you they were beautiful!

Love the soft flair, the backlight, and the “unplanned” moment….favorite kinds!

She’ll be doing a “40’s feel” for her reception with all forms of soft colors. Thus, I processed some with this airy, softer feel.

You’re BEAUTIFUL Heather!

Love the edit on this one…deep, rich, framed…mmmmm

Ahhh….the last kiss as the sun sets behind the hills. Perfection.

I’ve always wanted to begin a post that way…don’t know why.  When I met this couple, they were pleasant, kind, very sweet and extremely cool.  I think I remember Mallory saying something to the effect of… “we’re kind of dorky…” which I just don’t believe anymore. You two have your own special something goin on that I can’t quite explain. BUT, I know I love it! 

Mikiah and Mallory met me for their engagement session last week and I instantly raved about the awesome new spot where the sun trickles in…and there’s green all around that I was going to take them to.  We got there and headed out to the specific spot where the ferns had grown  to the point you couldn’t even see the ground anymore. I said something like….”you’re going down there”….and they obliged.  Little did I know that it was a trap of beauty….set by mosquitos that were waiting to pounce. I had 30+ by the time the night was over….and the two of them had many more.  I felt so horrible!   However, the images are perfection…simple….lovely…clean…crisp…bright and fun. You two are insanely photogenic and I fear you must never have any qualms about stepping infront of a camera again.

Here’s just one…an inbetween the posed shots, if you will….my favorite kind. I love backlight…ADORE it. I love when it spills in just perfectly over my subjects.  I couldn’t touch this image in photoshop…I just had to leave it in its perfect simplistic beauty. LOVE. Love.

AND….just had to finish the night seeing just how far my pocket wizards would work…ohhh, I love them.  They are perfection and worth every penny. Love the scenic pulled back shot for a bit of variety…

I don’t care what stage of life you’re in, love  is just cool. More to come!
