One last engagement session hurrah for the year 2012 ! Travis and Lacey are about the nicest, cutest, most fun couple on the earth, so I was thrilled to get some sunshine to capture their love on this other wise rainy day. It was literally pouring rain a hour before their session, so it was such a gift to be able to shoot with some beautiful light. Again, these two are pure goodness and light and were about the best subject a gal could ever have. We are all excited about their up-coming wedding this summer at the Citizen Hotel. Enjoy a small taste of their true love engagement session :
Of course I had to add a bit of my ‘ funk ‘ into the mix.
Her friend Amanda came along to help out, really a great idea !
Um crazy in love…me with this photo that is, oh they were crazy in love also for the record.
Sun and rain and a spider man kiss, let me count the ways of how I love thee : )
This was Lacey’s grandfathers blanket so it has special meaning, and we jacked the idea off pinterest, who are we kidding here ?
This reminded me of a movie set, like the happy ending of a love story.
Think pink people. I have been jonesin to post these vibrant, happy happy joy joy and oh so PINK and colorful photos of Chonnie and Janoah ( Cha-no no and Ja no-no if you were needing their nicknames any time soon ). This wedding was a slam dunk with all its ‘bling bling’, loads of happy people and a couple MADLY in love with each other. I LOVED working with Joe from Extreme Productions, the sunset and view at Serrano Country Club, and of course this fun, vivacious and full of life couple. And yes… the DID have a bridal party of 20 people. The more the merrier for Chojo ( great celebrity name mash up right ). Please to drink the pink folks :
I love these behind the scenes shot my treasured second shooter get, go Michelle’s bells !
Serranno Country Club sure has a lot of great backdrops, we were in photographers heaven !
One of my favorite photos of all time : )
FUN FACT: Chonnie is a wrapper and did a full on song to her husband at their reception. It brought down the house : )

These two really did have a genuine ‘ When Harry met Sally ‘ love story ! I instantly fell deeply in love with these two and was thrilled when they choose me to capture there precious memories. For their engagement session, we had big dreams, to include all manor of wood, signs, bikes, some vintage feeling things and of course if you hire me you are going to get a bit of funk. I left this session thinking how lucky I am to get to work with such fun people creating cool photos. They are getting married this May at the Grand Island mansion. I can not wait to get to know them better and make more magic.
Yeah, I think I am going to build a life with this photo ! LOVE is an understatement.
Now if you get that title you are a true retro gamer ! The promise of receiving cake is a super retro game referance and was the theme of Stephanie and Jerred’s cake. Man alive did they have some cute details at their Monte Verde Inn wedding. I LOVED this couple ! So fun and vibrant, creative and original and in love ! I remember when they met with me oh so long ago they told me they could not imagine another photographer shooting their wedding. Yes, folks by all means flatter away. Since I have the taste of 12 year old girl ( and sometimes a 14 year old boy ) I was in heaven with their retro gamer theme and unique details. This couple just exuded such genuine love, orginality and zest for life. The Monte Verde Inn really delivered giving them their perfect day. Those folks sure do a great job !
Please enjoy a taste of the fun :
Truly the most creative invitations I have ever seen. My super cute boyfriend Brad Haynes, who is an avid retro gamer, was goo-goo ga ga over these invitations and demanded he received one for his collection.
Stephanie is a budding model so she was just the ideal subject !
I am so smitten by this photo.
Did I mention how fun this couple was ?
Awesome shot from my second shooter Sarah Beth, great job !
Deeply in love with this photo, we are making plans for a life together as we speak.
O.K you got to the end of my overly long blog post, now enjoy your cake !
photos with heart and soul
