Chicago IL - Summer 2021.
A bunch of creatives from around the country had the pleasure of coming together and doing a bunch of shoots together. This was one of the shoots we did together. I wanted to use the parasols in a creative way, so why not create a forced perspective and frame the couple between the two!
This styled shoot was a thing of dreams. An ethereal picnic theme, Kati and Mat created epic shots in every location we went. Mat's Black Tux maroon suit complimented her peach layered gown. Even with a 12 foot train, Kati and Mat's love was the true focal point of this gorgeous shoot. We were honored to photograph their wedding three years ago and even more grateful they were willing to model for us now!
The weather was over 100 degrees on Shelly and Will's wedding day and Will requested that we take many of their wedding portraits indoors so he could remain cool. We were taking some creative photos in an elevator when I saw this opportunity. Their love really shines through in this triple reflection.
It is not often that I do bridal sessions, but when I do, I really enjoy them. When Rebeka asked me to shoot her bridals, I was honored. I wanted to get creative with them and include a sense of mystery and drama. With the dark shadows, and only using the natural light coming through the windows of the 200-year-old farmhouse, we were able to do just that!
This was a special one...They brought me all the way from LA to NY to do their wedding. Everything was perfect the location, the light, the couple, and the evening. We were overjoyed to be a part of this stunning wedding in the #newyorkcity. Not only was the landscape truly breathtaking, but the opportunity to work with these two lovebirds was also stunning.
When the original plan gets a wrench thrown into it and you have to improvise on the spot for a location for portraits, you let the artistic eye take over.
This little building is such a little iconic spot for photos and I even shot on these steps about 10 years ago when I was learning as a second shooter for weddings. I love when things go full circle!
As an Adventure Wedding Photographer, I shoot in the mountains on a weekly basis. If you have ever shot in the mountains, or at higher elevations, you know that the weather can be unpredictable! So when I have an engagement shoot scheduled, and the weather is calling for rain, I still shoot with the couple. I never cancel. It creates the most unique photos with the clouds and sunlight shining through. There is always a feeling of mystery and adventure that comes across in photos like this.
It was a pleasure to shoot Sarah and Morgan's adventure engagement session in the mountains recently! I hope to have many more sessions as epic as this one!
