Maureen & Chandler – Newlyweds!
We are ending the year with a bang! I am sure you all remember Maureen & Chandler… they were the last wedding we photographed this year. Well, if you do remember them, you remember that their wedding day could not have been more wet. We had high hopes of all of these outdoor portraits of the two of them and the wedding party, but sadly, we didn’t get much of that. I always feel a little bad when couples don’t get my signature sunny looks in their images, so I offered all of our rainy-wedding-day clients a second chance. Maureen & Chandler didn’t even stop to think of whether or not they would do it. They were all over this idea! So, we met up yesterday to do some newlywed portraits. We didn’t trash the dress, and it wasn’t the day after… so, I am officially calling it “Newlywed Portraits.” This name suits them so well because we met up in their first home together… took some there, and then we explored the town where they are spending their newlywed year/s. I absolutely LOVE this shoot, and I hope to do many more like this in the coming year. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Happy viewing, friends!
we started in their room… nothing scandalous, just hanging out in the GREAT light! :-) (i couldn’t decide between these first two- they were taken only seconds apart)
i love the ballerina feel to this one.
LOVE the light in this one!
this is one of my faves.
we were about to head out the door, and they went in the kitchen to get some flowers… i snuck a few shots, but nothing fabulous… so, i asked them to cuddle in real quick. love it!
then we headed out around the town… LOVE that I can hear them laughing in this one!
this is another favorite. love it!
some bright colors… maybe Christmas joy?
Maureen chose all the spots we went since I was not familiar with the area… this was a great spot with a great view of the town!
umm… this could easily be my favorite! L-O-V-E!!! and I have to give major props to Maureen for laying down on this merry-go-round. it was FREEZING! literally, it was about 34 out, and this was metal. She’s hard core. :-)
this was (admittedly) one of those mistake shots where the flash didn’t fire, but I really still love the feel of it.
another fave. sweetness.
i was going to leave this one out since it would be two headless shots in a post, BUT… i couldn’t pass the sunny backglow of this one. we definitely didn’t get this on the wedding say.
more great light on the street where they live! Thanks so much, guys! I had a blast!
