WYOMING ENGAGEMENT: Katie & Zach w/Pickrel Art & Photography

 

Meet Katie and Zach. She’s a student at Sheridan college (part time vet clinic employee, part time Starbucks Barista), he’s a ranch hand at the Padlock ranch. They met in Jackson Hole while working on a dude ranch in 2014. These really sweet & hip engagement photos were taken at Rapid Canyon Ranch outside of Sheridan at the base of the Big Horn mountains, and their wedding will also be at the ranch (I like the date pic!). Thanks to our super cool friend Becky Picrel of Pickrel Art & Photography of Gillete for sharing!

ENGAGEMENT SPOTLIGHT: Dusty & Dakota

Thanks to Tim Doolin Photography of Sheridan for sharing Dusty & Dakota’s engagement shoot! Tim is an 8th grade teacher at Sheridan Middle School… Here’s what he had to say about these two:

A former student, Dakota is marrying Dusty next fall. I’ve enjoyed being a part of her journey, watching her grow from an 8th grade student, taking her senior portraits, and now photographing she and Dusty as she gets ready for another big chapter in her life. What a beautiful day we had for these images as the light and colors were fantastic. It is obvious these two have chemistry and I look forward to working with them in the months ahead.

I’m so excited to feature this engagement from Dreaming Hollow Photography of Laramie! Catherine is a former Miss Wyoming, and her fiance, Clint, is just the most picture-perfect cowboy one could imagine… What a great set of images! But I’m going to quit yapping and share what Tessa of Dreaming Hollow has to say about these two…

When Clint and Catherine contacted us about their Engagement portraits, they mentioned right away that one of the angles of their love story that they wanted us to document was how they met in the soup kitchen of their church.  They asked if they could use our kitchen for part of the photo session.  Of course we said yes!

We asked Clint and Catherine if they would share a bit about their experience falling in love and how they met.  Here it is, in their words:

“Without God opening the doors and shining His light on their hearts, Clint and Catherine wouldn’t be where they are today: in each others arms. After numerous (secret) attempts by their mutual friends to set them up, Catherine’s dear friend and co-worker, Emily finally gave the situation to God and thanked Him for taking care of the rest. Soon after, Clint and Catherine locked eyes across the room at the High Plains Community Church soup kitchen, Sunday, 11/13/2011. They poured their hearts out to each other while serving pea salad and made plans to see each other again. The rest is history! Through Miss Wyoming experiences and adventures in Colorado and Wyoming, Clint and Catherine grew to be inseparable, despite their busy schedules. After a summer trip to Dallas to meet Catherine’s family, the deal was sealed. Clint proposed Labor Day weekend after a beautiful horseback ride in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The love, the moment, and the proposal couldn’t have been more perfect! With their friends and family by their sides, the couple plans to say, “I do” beneath Devil’s Tower on August 31, 2013.”

I’m so excited to feature this engagement from Dreaming Hollow Photography of Laramie! Catherine is a former Miss Wyoming, and her fiance, Clint, is just the most picture-perfect cowboy one could imagine… What a great set of images! But I’m going to quit yapping and share what Tessa of Dreaming Hollow has to say about these two…

I had the very special privilege of getting to know {Catherine} after photographing her Miss America head shot.  Imagine how excited  we  were when we found out she was ENGAGED to a very handsome COWBOY and that they  wanted us to photograph their engagement session and their wedding coming up in August 2013.

“While discussing options for their engagement session one of the first things they mentioned is that they wanted something outdoors, something big and beautiful, and what could be better than our very own Snowy Range Mountains!  We are just so very fortunate to live in Laramie where gorgeous scenery such as this is just a short drive away and the creative photographic opportunities are just endless!”

A few from their Snowy Range shoot…I LOVE the things that they did with this — more than just Lake Marie (although the lovely lady is in there), but also the Libby Flats lookout and lots of great sunset shots (but I’m saving those for last…)

 

 

OK, there is just too much lovely for one blog post — yup, there’s MORE believe it or not… so I’m gonna make this into a two-parter!

adore this engagement spotlight from Ardent Photography in Laramie…Janna and Isaac clearly have some serious chemistry — you can practically feel it oozing from these images… I have to say that I *hope* that we get to spotlight these two’s wedding when it comes time for that…*ahem* I’ll let Stephanie of Ardent say more about these two lovebirds…

Janna and Isaac are a sweet couple, deeply in love and have a flare for the dramatic. Their first date was at a historic theater so it only made sense to capture some of that same magic in their engagement session. We chose their locations thoughtfully, making sure to pay special attention for Janna’s love of anything vintage. Their sessions were split between the Historic Atlas Theater and The Train Depot in Cheyenne, WY. What a visual treat their set turned out to be, we cannot wait for their wedding!

Thanks to Stephanie & Rick of Ardent Photography in Laramie for sharing this gorgeous engagement with us — and congratulations to Janna & Isaac on not only a new adventure in their lives together, but on finding such fabulous, palpable chemistry with each other…this is the stuff of which great loves are made…

Thanks to E&R Photography and Photobooth in Casper for sharing this beautiful engagement shoot with us! Talk about Wyoming western wonderland…I LOVE these creative and beautiful images! Jamie contacted us and shared their story with us…I love a story that includes the phrase “it must’ve been fate…”

Brian and I met on December 3, 2011 at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV.  My sister and I were there enjoying their annual trip to the NFR, and Brian was hauling horses across the country and just happened to stop in for the night.  It must’ve been fate, because we spent nearly every weekend after we met together, even though we were living hours apart. In August, Brian proposed in Evanston at the old train depot.   We are planning an outdoor ceremony for September 7, 2013 at my parents’ ranch near Lusk, WY. (Be sure to check out the awesome ‘save the date’ picture idea!)

ENGAGEMENT SPOTLIGHT: Cheynae & Rob

Thanks to Julie Livermore Photography for sending in this beautiful engagement story from Rawlins… Cheynae & Rob met in October 2007 when Cheynae was a waitress at Sanford’s in Rawlins. The restaurant has since closed, and Cheynae & Rob moved on, but wanted to return to Rawlins and have their engagement shoot take place…”where their story began,” as Julie says. “Because they were only in town for a night, we had to deal with some frigid temps and gusting winds…just a typical late spring day in Carbon County!  In addition to some images downtown, with the Sanford’s building in the frame, we also drove out of town a bit to take advantage of the unique Wyoming scenery!”

Cheynae shared a couple of special stories about Rob’s proposal on December 27, 2011:  “Rob secretly invited my dad and his dad & stepmom to Montana (I was under the impression they were there for Christmas) and proposed in our new camper. This was a big step for us as it was our first actual “home” together!”  Rob also, without knowing, chose a very special day to propose. “Rob proposed on his grandmother’s birthday and didn’t realize it until we called his aunt to spill the good news,” Cheynae says. “She passed away from cancer a few years ago and was very near & dear to Rob’s heart. So we took that as a spiritual sign that she approved.” Cheynae adds that Rob just woke up that morning and “felt that it was right.” Chills!

Cheynae & Rob are planning their wedding date for June 7, 2014.
