With 2015 coming to an end tonight, we thought it would be the perfect time to share a glance at our year in review. I can’t believe this is our fourth behind the scenes post! It’s so fun to do this each year and look back at what was going on behind the shot, our different second shooters and all of our awesome clients. 2015 wedding season was on for the books! We met so many amazing clients this year, and even got to photograph some previous ones. Tori moved back home this Summer from Orlando, FL which was super exciting for the team. It was our first wedding season to all be in the same location, meeting weekly and second shooting with one another a bunch. Julia shot her first official wedding season as a lead photographer with us this year, all while planning/having a wedding of her own!! Julia tied the knot to her beau Nate on July 11th, 2015. Hats off to her, she conquered it like a champ! I love the shots Rebekah and I grabbed form her day featured below. Our amazing team stylist Kelsey just had her gorgeous little baby girl, Pearl Lee Mae two weeks ago. Kelsey is such a trooper! She was super pregnant through out this Summer and Fall but that didn’t keep her from getting her adventure on, climbing over rocks, gathering sweet props and crafting together floral crowns for our seniors. I love seeing that growing baby bump in some of the images below. As for me, the traveling bug bit me quite hard this year and it did not disappoint! I got to visit Maine, Las Vegas, California, West Virginia, and NYC. WOO! This year we also welcomed on two team editors Jordan and Brittney! They’ve been so great with helping out and keeping us on track with all of our deadlines and editing.
Our wedding season began in February and wrapped up in November. It’s been a full year! This year we had our fair share of wedding cake, crazy dancing, carrying dress trains, chasing the light, witnessing some of the most magical heartfelt vows, first looks and interactions, egged on a few cake smashes, traveled collectively to Maryland, Baltimore and Colorado, and ended the year by hosting our annual Holiday Mini Sessions. We are all so excited to see where 2016 takes us individually and as a team. Thank you so much for following us along on our journey, for hiring us as your photographers/stylists, and for the amazing year that you gave us!
ps- As always, we’ve got tons of new goals and dreams that we are anxiously waiting to check off the list for this year. If you’d like to make sure you’re getting all of our updates and weekly behind the scenes, click and follow our social media links below!
Kylie Jenner… I mmmmean Mackenzie Harley’s senior portraits! You know you’re thinking it too. 😉
Mackenzie is the younger sister of Kelsey Rae, our fabulous team stylist! I was so excited to collaborate with these two cuties. The Harley’s have been blessed with good looks and modeling skills that kick butt, lemme tell ya. Kelsey came up with our location, outfits, hair/makeup and props. She never disappoints! Pinnacle Overlook is one of my favorite spots. I’ve always wanted to photograph here, so when Kelsey and I began coming up with ideas I was immediately so excited when she thought of going here for the shoot. The sunset this night was unreal. It provided such a soft, hazy glow and thus, I am obsessed with these images forever.
Mackenzie has a heart of gold, gorgeous locks, and the cutest giggle. It was such an honor to capture her senior portraits and get creative together. Enjoy a few of my favorites!
