This is a busy time of year for engagement sessions, which I love! They are one of my favorite things to photograph. They give me a chance to get to know my clients ahead of their wedding day and they are super fun (once we get warmed up and past the I’m-getting-my-photo-taken jitters).
Speaking of love, it’s Valentine’s Day! And, I thought today of all days would be an appropriate time to share one of said engagement sessions. Last year, I learned a bit about love languages (which I found fascinating) and that changed a lot of how I approach my shoots with couples. I love looking for ways to show how each couple expresses their love to one another and not forcing my ideas of what love should look like upon them. As a result, hopefully, we come away with images that reflect their unique relationship and that feel real, natural and like them. I think these photos from my afternoon with Claire and Justin do a pretty good job. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Galentine’s Day! I didn’t totally know that was a thing until last week but I love it! I jumped at the chance to photograph this seriously pretty lunch hosted by Katie Dean Jewelry and Glitter Guide at Hedley & Bennett‘s HQ for an inspiring group of creative ladies. Taking a little time to show some love to the women in your life and to let them know how much they inspire you is a pretty cool thing! I know I wouldn’t be able to function without my amazing mom, sister and seriously inspiring girlfriends! (You know who you are! :)
The party was so beautiful thanks to an amazing collection of awesome companies that helped out including my girls at Twink & Sis, stunning florals by Iris & Daughter, those amazing tiny cakes by Cake Monkey and refreshments from Owl’s Brew and La Colombe Coffee. So much eye candy that made my job so much fun! Check out all the details over at Glitter Guide here.
The last couple of months have included a lot of sweet, yummy newborn sessions over here at One Eleven. I had to share some favorites from this recent one with the Almeida family because how could I not?! Just so much love and light in every shot! Enjoy!
