Canoeing in the snow photo session

TreyDillon_Kayla&Chris_1

I’m a big fan of outdoor shoots that show you and your loved one doing what you love the most… and of course if that happens to be canoeing in the snow, all the better for it!! Especially when you get awesome moody photos like these. TREY DILLON had been sitting on this idea for sometime and finally got his chance as he explains below…

“Lets talk about romance for a minute. Canoeing on private waters while its snowing. Glad we got that talk out of the way. A little while back I dreamt up this idea of photographing a couple canoeing in the snow. Then I remembered that I lived in Texas – a clashing reality. But surprise! It snowed this year in the Lone Star State. When I woke up and there was “snow” I was 100% set on making this idea actually happen. I hadn’t realized it would be so hard to piece together the rest of the puzzle. I had to find a couple that were a) into the idea, b) had a truck that could trek in the snow, c) were available at a moments notice and d) that I wanted to bless with a photo shoot. Oh yeah, and they had to own a canoe. After sorting through five couples I struck GOLD. Kayla and Chris were the perfect eligible and adventurous couple for this shoot. I could not be happier that the snowy outdoors and adventurous canoeing so much supported the fun and loving relationship that Kayla and Chris share with one another. We later found out that Jax, their puppy, was even more excited about our fun day than even we were. The result is something I’m really into. It reminded me that shooting something that starts from an idea rather than a request is a vital part of growing as an artist.

Engagement session in golden fields

SarahMarie_Anthony&Sara_1

I hope you’re all having a nice weekend! We have had the rainiest of Saturdays here… could barely get outside! So naturally I’m dreaming of some golden sunshine like in these gorgeous images by SARAH MARIE PHOTOS. For Sara and Anthony’s styled engagement shoot, stylist JANNA BROWN DESIGN CO. worked with soft shades of blush, cream and grey to create warmth and softness to be captured by Sarah. Janna tells us, “The location at the Stables at Russell Crossroads provided an ethereal glow, and the wind blowing through the sea of wheat looked like a scene from a fairytale. SILK & WILLOW’S swoon-worthy silk cascaded over the decor, and rippled in the breeze along with the tulle on the gorgeous JENNY YOO Annabelle dress. LERAE EVENTS provided florals that were gorgeously wild and unruly. The sun set over the field and allowed for an amazing day of shooting as we ventured deep into the woods for a few darker shots at dusk. The moodiness of the final images created the perfect closure for our stunning shoot.

Yellow Wedding Ideas in the Colorado landscape

CarrieKing_YellowFloralBridals_1

After spying an image from this shoot on Instagram I was pretty excited to receive it in my inbox just a few days later – especially as I’d saved the image to share anyway. It’s so nice to see a shoot with yellow in it, I don’t see that colour used too much these days and I love it in this earthy landscape. The beautiful photography by CARRIE KING PHOTO ensures the colours in the stunning florals – by YONDER FLORAL & DECOR HOUSE – are a standout against the neutral tones of the rocks and mountains.

Carrie tells us, “Inspired by the onset of the warmer months, a lovely color palette of yellow ranunculus mixed with greenery and jasmine vine illuminates this stunning Colorado landscape. I am such a fan the of wind, it literally breathes life into an image. I never fight that. The bride’s hair dances throughout the spaces that fill my lens. The effortless style of the flowing Gemy Maalouf skirt paired with the pale yellow lace top is heaven to me. Femininity defined.
