Brigett and Travis' Wedding

This past weekend I had the privilege to photograph Brigett and Travis's wedding in Wausa, Nebraska at the Covenant Church.  It was a clear , crisp, cold day. Snow was blanketing the ground and cut through by plows and cars. 
Here are a few photos that I would like to share from the wedding....
I love the cowby look.  Travis ranches 400 head... so it is quite appropriate.

I love the lace and the ruching of the lace into the applique trimmed lace up bodice.

Pretty much everyone was wearing cowboy boots!  I should have had mine on.  Here is the Mother of the Groom's shoow with decoration.

It was quite cold out but I was able to convince the B&G to take a few shots outside.    I was unfamiliar with Wausa, so I wasn't quite sure where outside I could do some snow photos... they had to be quick... and just outside of the church was this treelined sidewalk that worked.....

Here are two difference perspectives...

Here is a fun one in the long stretch Ford Excursion Limousine.. I"m glad the window could be opened.

This window provided the perfect natural light spot in the church.  I loved using it... it not only fits into the western theme... its simple beauty was perfect.

It was a beautiful winter day for a wedding.... Just a couple of days prior we had a snow storm, and I'm so glad that it didn't last but left some winter beauty!

Only by Faith Fashion Shoot Extra

I am a little impatient, and although I have to wait to share the photos from Only by Faith, I have been able to share some closeups that don't reveal too much.  I had some great models to work with, a great designer, and  a great stylist.  I'm really excited by this wedding line.  I think Marie from Only by Faith has captured romance in her line of wedding attire.  Beauty and romance are an integral part of any wedding day.  Any bride who gets the opportunity to have this line of wedding garments for her wedding, will not be disappointed.

Omaha Fashion Week Look Book

I have been given the privilege by Omaha Fashion Week 2013 designer, Marie Nelson, to shoot her look book and her runway show.  Her show is on February 28th, and she is showing a bridal line called Only, by Faith.  Yesterday, we spent the afternoon at the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, NE photographing her line for her look book.  It was a beautiful day and a beautiful location for our shoot which centered on one of their two staircases.  I will be sharing photos of the whole line and runway shoot on March 1st, but for now I wanted to share two close ups of the wonderful models, Bethany and Jessica,   as a sneak peek hinting at a beautiful wedding line.  I was so excited to see what Marie had produced, and I have to say... I wish I had had her for my wedding dress designer!  So here are two photos for now... but keep on the look out for a bevy of photos after the 28th show!

Catch Up 3! Terick.. Pre & post!

Here are some materinity shots and newborn portraits of Terick and his family... I'll let the photos speak for themselves....

Catching Up 2! Kyler!

Now here in this post I will share some photographs that I have taken lately....  It's going to be a busy February, and these are the beginnings!  This is Kyler... he didn't want to be in front of the camera, and we had to quickly capture these few images!  But I wouldn't say they turned out too bad :)


Catching Up!

Wow, I've been lax in posting.... so I'm going to do a quick  photo update on photo sessions the past month and a pillow the kids and I made!

Let's start with the pillow....    I thought it might be interesting to  weave a pillow covering, leave loose ends to tie, and then tie it around a pillow form.  We have some techniques to improve on this, but I think we turned out a pretty pillow!
