I really enjoyed getting to know these two. Kacey and I actually grew up a little bit together. Her grandmother used to babysit me and she was usually there at the same time. We had a few little country adventures. 20ish years later and here we were. It was a perfect fit from the start. We all had so much in common and so the photography part didn’t feel like work at all! I’ll keep it short and sweet, but here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding in August 2012.
This is another wedding from last summer that I didn’t get a chance to blog. I have some posts up on Facebook and I think a few random images on the blog but I never showed much of a timeline.
These two live in Australia. Sean grew up here so it was important for him to get married in Idaho. We emailed internationally and occasionally met up when they were in town for wedding planning. I loved getting to know these guys. They are so adventurous and love a lot of the same things my husband and I do. The week of their wedding we had heard that there was potential for rain, so I was a little nervous about that but it came perfect timing! Plus, these two aren’t afraid of any rain!
I’ve had a lot of people come up to me and say, “we need to get our family photos taken with you, but I want to lose a few pounds first” or “my kids are 10 and 15 and we’ve never had a family photo taken together”. Several years go by and a session was still not scheduled. This always makes me sad because time goes by SO fast and next thing you know, 5-10 years has passed and some of those memories will slip away.
I was recently going through a bunch of the old video clips I made last year during photo sessions and decided to put a little video together as a reminder of how important it is to capture those milestones in your life. Life changes and moves so fast.
A couple days ago I was putting together my 2012 wedding album. I put a new one together each year so I can show brides different aspects of shooting after every season. This year I decided to do it a little different. Each page was more of a collage instead of nicely organizing each wedding. One of my favorite pages is the details page. I pulled all my favorite detail images from all of the weddings this summer. I didn’t have enough room for EVERY favorite but I was able to narrow it down to my top favorites.
As fast as summer came, it went. I’m not much of a winter person so I’m sad to see summer go. This summer has been full of great families, cute babies, and wonderful couples. Though I’ve neglected the blog over the last few months I definitely have been staying busy. I just finished the last wedding of the year so you will be seeing lots of activity here. I can’t wait to share all the fun photos I’ve been working on. Of course, you can always see the current stuff I’m doing over on my Facebook Page. The blog usually gets last priority when I’m busy.
The wedding season in Idaho generally runs June-October for me. Occasionally I will have an earlier wedding but it’s not very common because the weather doesn’t always cooperate. I’ve had 2 spring weddings this year and have loved both of them. Weather has been perfect! Here are a few of my favorites from a wedding a few weeks ago. There were so many I loved that I couldn’t narrow it down for the blog post.
I haven’t shown a before and after picture for a while. After editing this one, I thought it would be a good one to show. Going into shooting this image, I knew the powerline was going to be something I’d have to edit out later. There was no getting out of it and no way to shoot the photo without the powerline showing. The one thing I didn’t anticipate was a child jumping into the background second before I took the shot. However, after looking at the shot, I knew that was something I could probably fix later – as we didn’t have time to reshoot this particular shot.
So I ended up cloning out the powerline and child in the back. Then I warmed up the photo a bit because it was a little on the cool side. I left the wood pole in the picture because it basically looks like a tree, and because it would have been extremely difficult to remove.
