WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Christian & Megan

FIND A WY VENDOR:  http://www.wyoweddings.com/

Thanks to Brian of BHPimaging in Laramie for sending this absolutely breathtaking wedding!!! Christian & Megan were married in northern Wyoming, in an ‘epic’ day (so says Brian) that was filled with love and some VERY snazzy embellishments. But I’ll let these pictures do the talking, because they truly are AMAZING…

Here’s what Brian has to say about this sweet couple and his experience with them:

Christian & Megan are incredibly beautiful and the light was what I wish for every wedding. I also had a brilliant second shooter, a professional photographer in Montana. There is something about the first wedding of the wedding season that really gets me feeling like it’s summer.

When I met both of these lovebirds I was still in photo school. I sat next to Christian in a couple business classes and always really enjoy his company. Megan was that girl that showed up in photo classes and the teachers couldn’t help but rave about her work. I have since had the chance to get to know them both. They are full of love.

Christian and Megan continued dating through college and both moved to Cody, Wyoming after their respective graduations. Megan began diving deeper into the video world and producing outdoor recreation videos, all while keeping her edge sharp for shooting. Christian has found a love for ceramics. He has developed an incredibly genuine style, founded in his passion for rock climbing and the outdoors.  You can begin to see shades of Wyoming Granite in his work.

For their wedding, I was lucky enough to work with artists. These wedding stress me out more than any other… you are shooting for people with highly trained eyes, attention to detail, and a true understanding of what’s happening on my side of the camera.

Their day went so incredibly smooth, the kind of day a wedding photographer dreams of:  warm, hazy light, a beautiful couple that smiles every time they catch each other’s eyes, a shooting schedule that left a little bit of wiggle room, a great second shooter (Shanna Mae Swanson) and friends in front of your lens.

There are times that being a wedding photographer can start to feel less than glamorous. This wedding will be what I think of in those moments. This wedding was so full of special, unique moments. It wasn’t planned to some incredible extent, it was a party in honor of Christian and Megan’s love. It was a party for their friends and their families.

With that said, I’ll turn to BHP’s images from Christian & Megan’s wedding…they are so beautiful…

 

Thanks again to Brian of BHPimaging in Laramie for sending in this gorgeous wedding — CONGRATS to Christian & Megan, and you are one hip couple, I have to say… May your journeys take you to many more adventures!

Til Next Time…

Many thanks to Ludwig Photography in Laramie for sending this inspirational shoot our way! Here’s what Anne has to say about this Marilyn-inspired, vintage shoot…

Cassidy called one day and left a message that she had a deep desire, LOVE really, of all things Marilyn. Deep in my heart I could relate. But not just anyone could pull this off.  Marilyn was so natural, beautiful, and true in front of the camera.  Then I met Cassidy:  bubbly, energetic, beautiful both inside and outside — a sweet Wyoming girl as genuine as they come. The day was perfect and all the planning on my end paid off from the hair appointment to scouting around for weeks for the perfect car and location — yes, even nature provided Wyoming wind for that iconic moment. Cassidy could easily have been caught up in being a cliché — but something magical, beautiful and so empowering happened. She was simply stunning and completely the Cassidy we had come to know and love.

ENGAGEMENT SPOTLIGHT: Catherine & Clint Part II

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.”

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!
