Have you searched the internet recently? Of course, who hasn’t! Have you scrolled for what seems like forever and then finally click something that is exactly what you were looking to find. Alexis and Jack were doing just that when they came across our wedding photography information. Not to mention we are located very close to them making it very easy to come visit us. They are getting married in October – we are so happy to be documenting their journey to the altar. Alexis called after the big snow storm wanting to know if we would be willing to take photos in the snow. Heck yeah!!! It is always so much fun to do those unique sessions that not every client is willing to do. We decided to meet at Castlewood park since it would have the potential of paths that were not plowed and still snow covered. The scenery was beautiful, of course it was a bit slippery walking on the melting snow but totally worth it for the photos we created together. A great time of day, easily to pose couple, beautiful scenery and a heart made out of snow were all perfect additions to the photos! Alexis and Jack wanted to include their dogs in the session, these dogs just loved the snow so having them around gave the session even more unique qualities. First. the photos we took were very personal. Second, there was lots of laughter behind the scenes as their friend tried to hold both dogs who desperately wanted to be next to mom and dad. Lastly, after capturing some wonderful photos on top of the bluff Alexis and Jack basically skied back down the hill with the help of their dog team. Yes, we laughed but also had to make sure nobody fell as we descended. It was such an unusually warm day which gave us the opportunity to take our time getting the perfect images. So happy we were able to create the first memories of your journey and looking forward to next chapter – the wedding day.

We have said it multiple times and I will continue to appreciate the referrals that we get from our clients. There was a family photo that we did back in the fall and because they enjoyed their experience so much they referred other family members to also have a session with us. The fall session that we did ended up being photographed in a bit of a rain drizzle because that was the best day that worked. We got some great images that the family now hangs on their wall. Oddly enough when we scheduled a time for the sisters family we did not realize it was also going to be a gloomy and a bit rainy day. However, because yet again it was the best day for the family we opted to have the studio as a backup location if the rain was too much. Luckily we were able to meet outdoors we just had to avoid some muddy spots in the park to capture the best images. This family consisted of a couple teenage girls who clearly have had their photo taken before because they posed perfectly and enjoyed the entire session. We also added in some full family photos because everyone was able to get together at the park including grandparents siblings and nieces and nephews. Don’t ever miss the opportunity to take as many family poses possible when you are able to get everyone together. With the chilly weather and all of the different options that the family wanted photographed we worked quickly and were able to get everything in, as well as, even some candid images of grandma underneath a blanket keeping warm with the kids and the little ones playing with aunts and uncles. It was a pleasure to work with this family again and we hope to have the opportunity to continue our relationship with them into the future.
