Kate and Alex: 15 minute engagement session

Most engagement sessions are around two and a half hours and we change outfits and move to several different locations.  This photo shoot was a fun challenge because these guys are going to do a full engagement session in the spring when the weather is nicer, but really just wanted one photo for their save the dates.  So I told them that they could come to our building downtown and we could do a 15 minute session right there on the sidewalk of our building.  I couldn't believe I was able to resist the temptation to shoot for longer, but the cold weather definitely helped.  

I love so many of these images -- especially for such a short session.  Really excited for Kate and Alex's wedding this fall.

Blush Bridal: Nebraska Bridal Store

This fall I had the chance to work with Emmy, the owner of the wonderful Blush Bridal boutique, a Nebraska bridal store, on a short video on Blush.  This was really my first attempt at doing any video so I was scrambling to pull that together, but I did manage to snap a few pictures along the way too.  Don't worry, none of these are the actual dress Leslie choose  :) Thanks Leslie and your friends for being such great models for the shoot, you're going to make an absolutely gorgeous bride!  Emmy -- your bridal store is absolutely beautiful.  Thanks for letting me be part of this!

Marianne + RJ: Omaha winter wedding photography

January 4, 2014:  I loved being part of Marianne and RJ's beautiful winter wedding.  This was the very first wedding I've photographed in 2014, and if this is any indication of how wonderful 2014 is going to be, then I'm pumped.  Marianne and RJ are were just so happy on their wedding day and are such incredibly warm people that it was really a joy to be part of their day. Also, they had so many personal touches throughout their wedding that just made it very special.  The song RJ wrote to Marianne was one of the most awesome things I've heard at a wedding, and Kevin and I were lucky enough to get to hear the sneak preview while he was practicing before the ceremony.  Loved Marianne's long veil made by her mother and her grandmother's pearl bracelet.  And instead of hiding away as guests were coming in, they greeted everyone as they came in for the ceremony, which made things feel very relaxed and intimate.  I've had the privilege of shooting so many Catholic ceremonies, but I have never seen a rosary ceremony like that and I thought it was beautiful.

Marianne and RJ, hope you enjoy these images!  Thanks again for letting Kevin and I be part of it!

Omaha Headshot Photography: Corporate Portrait

January 16, 2014: Wedding photography keeps me pretty busy, so it's not often that I'm free for another type of work. Last week I got a phone call about doing a headshot and was happy to get to spend some time shooting inside with this cold January weather. We spent about 20 minutes doing a variety of natural light portraits. I LOVE natural light compared to artificial light (if you can get it), and my office has the hugest north facing window that is just perfect. He needed something very traditional for a corporate publication, but I couldn't resist getting at least one or two less traditional portraits, just for fun.

If anyone in Omaha needs a headshot this winter for their LinkedIn profile, online dating, or just in general, I am available to do them until wedding season hits (May 1st).

Missy + Rob: Omaha Winter Engagement

I'm so excited that I get to be part of Missy and Rob's wedding... and not only because it's in the Dominican Republic.  :)  These guys are super cool and downtown dwellers too.  

Missy is a super talented personal trainer and exercise science professor, and we hit it off so much the first time I met her that I asked if she'd start doing some personal training with Kevin and I.  It's only been a month or so of working with Missy, and dang it's making a difference.  If any of you guys are reading this and interested in some personal training before your wedding, hit me up and I'll put you in touch with her!  Can't recommend it enough.


Even though they had a super cold winter day for engagement photos, we were still able to get some great shots of these guys.  And I LOVE when we start in at couples place.  So much more meaningful that way.  Incredible view of  downtown from their back deck.
