They invited me into their home to shoot an In-home session. These two have been renovating and flipping this home for WEEKS, and wanted to do a shoot to celebrate their accomplishments. The home was ADORABLE.
The big surprise happened at the end of the session when Greyson proposed to Molly. He had contacted me awhile ago about his plan to propose and I was SO excited to be there for this big moment. I only cried a little….
Melinda + Ryan
Meet Melinda and Ryan.
It all started at Doane College with Melinda and I. We are sorority sisters and I am SO honored to be her engagement/wedding photographer this year.
We took it to the Sandhills 2 weeks ago to shoot these moody engagements. The day was dreary, but. these two sure weren’t! Nebraska National Forest had A LOT to offer with sand and cactus plants. (Yes, we have them in Nebraska). The drive out West was a ways from Lincoln, but totally worth the drive.
We drove down roads getting lost in the Forest. All of a sudden, we came upon a green pasture in the Valley between the Forest walls complete with a Windmill. They dance around and I was running in circles capturing all of their happiness..
Congrats to Melinda and Ryan. Stay close, because their wedding will be posted this July!
Kylie and Joe : Lifestyle Session
Meet Kylie, Joe, and their French Bulldog Pops.
They invited me into their Omaha, NE apartment to photograph these intimate in-home shots with them and their dog. At first, Pops barked at the camera but it didn't take him long to become the center of attention. He did SO well posing for me!
Kylie had the brilliant idea to get his attention by chewing bubble gum. His favorite hobby is popping the bubbles she makes, so of course I had to get the perfect shot of that happening. No, that wasn't the inspiration for his name. He resembles an old man, so of course "Pops" is fitting.
In Omaha, a locally famous plant nursery (Mulhalls) was our last stop for these engagement photos. The floral on Kylie's dress mixed with the greens of the plants and colorful cacti made the session complete.
Joe and Kylie have a September 2018 wedding planned. Stay tuned for their wedding album hitting the page this Fall!
Lauren and Britton
Meet Lauren and Britton.
They invited me out to Western Nebraska to photograph their engagement session in their ski resort themed "Tiny house." The groom-to-be's mother decorated the entire little set and of course I was instantly in love.
Lauren and I were art majors together in college so when she asked me to photograph their engagements and their wedding in 2018, I was ecstatic. She continues to do ceramic art here in Nebraska and has a major talent for it.
This shoot was brought to life with their Pomski Mika. She fit the theme and colors perfectly. The couple dressed warm and "Winter" to bring together the entire theme of the session. Snow boots, hats, sweaters and hot cocoa were used to make this shoot feel cold and cozy all at once.
GOLDEN MOMENT: The parents of the groom invited me in for hot chocolate after the shoot and we talked Wedding. Their family was so inviting and incredibly nice. I am so thrilled to be there for their special day this year.
