Paint Love | Engagement | Boston Wedding Photographer

Before I moved from Arkansas I was able to come along on this engagement session with my dear friend & photographer Erika Dotson!  I was so excited when she had told me that her clients were up for getting a little dirty and doing a paint shoot!  How amazing is that?  Not only does Erika have amazing willing clients but also some real beautiful ones too!  How gorgeous are Jordan & Jordan (and yes they are both named Jordan)?!  I picked some of my favorites from the session... I had WAY to many too! ha!  Enjoy! We started off with some hog noses. I'm almost positive Jordan is calling the hogs in that bottom picture. ha!  Woo Pig Sooie!

A little mustache action!

LOVE!  This is definitely one of my favorites of these two!

J & J definitely own chickens...

Jordan you are gorgeous girl!

 

Elizabeth | Styled Bridal Shoot

After attending my first ever photography workshop (branches & light)... I was instantly inspired to do a styled shoot. Not just any styled shoot but one that I could display who I am and what I love as a photographer.  I thought about it for months... and finally pulled together some ideas I had running through my head.  I enlisted the help of Elizabeth to brainstorm with me and see if we could bounce different ideas around. I knew Elizabeth and I had the same style and love for all things simple, fresh & vintage! Since Elizabeth had just finished planning her own wedding in May I knew she would be great for the job! :)  We did everything ourselves... from Elizabeth's hair & make up to the weaved blanket she laid on.  Everything was done by us... which is probably why I'm so proud of it! ha! :) I am beyond excited with how this shoot turned out! It was EXACTLY what I imagined it to be in my head... but even better!  Love when that happens! :)  We were blessed with a gorgeous (but HOT) July evening. We couldn't have asked for better light... it was perfect!

Dress - Elizabeth's mother's wedding dress

Hair & make up - Elizabeth (& Kylee) from Freshair salon Fayetteville, AR

Flowers - bought from Sam's Club and put together by Elizabeth and I

Blanket - strips of fabric/ribbon weaved together

Props - came from both Elizabeth and I's home

Now onto the gorgeous pictures!  Enjoy!
