BlogFeature:ProjectWedding

This was such an amazing shoot to be a part of. First of, the couple is so cute! They had the most genuine love for each other. Sometimes you do these “inspired” shoots, and you end up with models, instead of a real couple. So it was such a treat to work with 2 people that were so in love with each other. They were newly engaged when we met to work together. He is a woodworker, and she a yoga instructor. Such an awesome down to earth couple.

The Project Wedding, is a huge website, and blog that features REAL WEDDINGS! Which I love. The couples engagement session is also up on the blog. Paper Antler, a husband and wife duo, shot the sessions. They are inspiring! Check out their goal, the Fifty Nifty, to put an end to sexual and human traffic. I have a heart for young girls, who are being trafficked. Their project is right up my alley.

Here is a list of the other amazing Vendors involved in the shoot.

this beauty has such a relatable story to tell and she does so through her natural talents of guitar playing and busting out a note or two.

 i had the pleasure of photographing sandy wells for her album cover within this past month and even though the tempatures were close to 10 with the windchill, we had a great time and were able to get some really fun shots.
sandy is performing LIVE after spending the last year in the recording studio producing her album on March 22nd at 7:00pm and you can find all the details by clicking here.  if you appreciate and love grass roots style country music you won’t want to miss this show!
