ashley & brandon | engaged

When I first met Ashley and Brandon, I was really taken with the way he talked about her and with the way she looked at him.  We had a couple of drinks and some delicious stuffed eggplant, and I loved watching them as they told me the story of how they met and how their relationship unfolded.  (Side note, I REALLY love to eat & drink with my clients.  Taking pictures is great, but let’s be honest, “consulting” is the fun part of this gig!)

When we got together again for their engagement session, I was singing their praises for choosing an indoor location!  When Ashley first told me of the idea of shooting in a theater that was memorable to them and was a part of their history together, I was immediately sold on the idea.  But when this winter turned out to be CRAZY COLD, that indoor location turned into more than just a romantic idea – it was nothing short of brilliant!

I love how these images turned out – cozy, intimate, romantic, and meaningful.  We’ll be seeing Ashley & Brandon again in November for their big wedding day ♥

Amanda - Such gorgeous images Brandi!

holiday session | the matthies

I was so excited to see Millie Claire!  It had been 6 whole months since her newborn session, and I was just dying to see how she had grown and changed!  She is just out-of-control precious ♥

And even though we scored probably the last beautiful fall day of the season, we met up with Ashley of Ashley Thunder Events who brought a little holiday magic for us!  I love the simple, classic nod to Christmas and that the focus of these images is still Ashley, Jeff, and Millie Claire.  It’s just the perfect combination, and I loved working with two of my favorite Ashleys at the same time!!!

krista | 2014 senior

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for Krista’s senior session!  This time of year is so tricky – the colors are gorgeous, but the likelihood of rain – or even snow – yikes- is always looming…but we beat the odds and captured some of those colors that make fall sessions so coveted!

Krista was such a joy to spend time with; her smiles and laughter just bubbled up and out of her, and her up-for-anything spirit made the session go so smoothly and feel like we were just hanging out, walking around, and talking…which is just what we did!  I had pre-chosen two locations for her session, but when I realized how close we were to my favorite beach, I couldn’t NOT suggest that we head over there – if Krista was up for it; I warned her that it would be cold and windy this time of year.  She immediately said yes, and the beach absolutely made the perfect ending for her ♥
