Sometimes I love an image so much, that it needs no words. Sometimes I also love two images so much that I can’t decide which is my favorite, even though they are so similar. This was an idea that my office manager, Christie, had, and I LOVE it!.
WOW! Crazy busy season has arrived, and of course, the blog gets neglected! I only have a couple of minutes to take a break and post, and wanted to share these two little sweeties that came to visit me in the studio a couple of weeks ago. We had so much fun playing in the camera room!
Maggie and Daniel are such a sweet couple! They are college sweethearts, and when Daniel proposed to her, he put the engagement ring on the wrong finger! I had to laugh when they told me this, because my husband did the EXACT same thing, only it was DURING our wedding! 🙂
We had a lot of fun exploring Burlington during their engagement session, and also got quite the workout! These two enjoy walking with their dogs in Crapo, and we captured some beautiful shots in the park. I am so looking forward to their wedding in September!
The wedding workshop in Tulsa last weekend was so much fun, I had to break it into two blog posts! This will be short, but I want to send out a huge thank you to Liz for putting it together, and to Adrion for the vision of the day. The workshop went great, and I can’t wait to do it again!
This past weekend I flew to Tulsa to teach a wedding class at a photography event for the third year in a row. I love going to this particular event, and I always get to see lots of old friends and make many new ones! The last two years, I’ve done both speaking and shooting classes, but this year we took it a step further, orchestrating an entire mock wedding. Despite some last-minute changes with our models, and unpredictable weather, the day turned out amazingly! My friend and also talented photographer, Liz Huckleby put together a wonderful weekend!
Adrion AuBell, a friend and photographer from Virginia, put together the look of the wedding, and it was so fabulous! We made a midnight run to WalMart the night before the class, after we arrived in Tulsa, to get some supplies, and she and a few other photographers stayed up until the wee morning hours putting it all together! We decorated all morning, and then class started after a crazy lunch!
Liz and Brandon stepped in to be our bride and groom models, and Amy, Scott, and Shalynn were our amazing wedding party! Christie posed as the pastor, and gave us a very sweet and funny mock ceremony! The first part of the class, we talked about weddings, equipment, and walked through the various stations, discussing light, must-have shots, and other ways to make the most of a situation. Then we broke into two groups and everyone took turns photographing the different parts of the wedding day.
Here are a few of my shots from the day. The details that Adrion put together were so simple but so beautiful, and the attendees in the class were so great to work with, too! I’ll do a second post with some “action” shots from the day, because I have WAY too many images to do in one day!
