Earlier this month we got together with Alyssa and Jon to do some exploring and shooting at Devil’s Den in Arkansas. When they reached out about their engagement photos, they said they wanted to take them in a place that was special to the two of them. We were so excited to learn that place was Devil’s Den. Neither Whit nor I have been there since we were young kids, so it was awesome to visit again. It really was like the first time both of us had ever been there. The area is absolutely beautiful, too.

We spent a few hours together hiking the trails, playing with smoke bombs (in areas where it was safe to!), and taking photos. It was awesome. Jon and I actually go way back. Our bands used to play together all of the time. We’d even tried to fire something up together a couple years back, but with our schedules being so different, it just never worked out. Still, Jon is an exceptional dude and someone I have a lot of respect for.

We met Alyssa for the first time last year when she worked with Whit and I on some personal work for our lifestyle portfolio. It was awesome and this girl can really rock it in front of the camera. Not to mention, she’s just a very genuine and sweet person who’s a joy to be around.

We hope you guys dig the photos below. It was, as I said, a dang good day!

We have just a few more blog posts to share before the year officially ends. It’s safe to say 2015 has been our best year yet.

Take care and talk soon!

This was great time. I really don’t what better way to start this off than by saying those words. Trish is an old friend of ours, so it was nothing short of awesome to be able to shoot she and Derek’s big day in Half Moon Bay just outside of San Francisco.

Trish and Derek had their wedding with a relatively small group of people. It was their closest friends and family in attendance. They held their ceremony outside and it was a perfect day for it. What started off as rather dreary day with considerable fog, gave way to beautiful blue skies and the sounds of ocean slapping against the shore below.

We didn’t venture far for their photos because we didn’t have to. We were right in the thick of a beautiful location that had so much to offer.

It was a fantastic day for a number of reasons. Obviously, the biggest being Trish and Derek saying “I do.” It was also great seeing some old friends that were able to make it in from Joplin to Chicago to Idaho. You have to love those weddings that are sorta like mini reunions.

Before we go, we just have to say how amazing these two really are. They’re brilliant, brilliant people, but most importantly, they are kind and humble. They’re also insanely funny, which you should take a moment to see below by checking out the amazing video they made for their introduction to the reception. It’s right at the end of the blog post! Calling it awesome is an understatement. I’d venture to say it’s just as awesome as Kung Fury. Yes, I mean that. It’s hilarious and a great indication of their personalities.

Congrats guys! We can’t thank you enough for showing us an amazing time and letting us be a part of your day!

Take care and talk soon!

Good afternoon friends! We are getting so close to the end of the year. We’ve shot our last wedding and only have a couple left to blog after we share Nigel and Sarah’s rad OKC reception with you today. What an amazing year it’s been, too!

Back in September, we took a trip to downtown OKC to spend the afternoon with Nigel and Sarah. I met Nigel online through a mutual love of photography and art a few years back. To say we are fans of his work would be an understatement. His vision and creativity is of a darker nature and it’s absolutely beautiful. If you’ve never seen his work, take a moment to visit his site. He’s simply amazing! Just click HERE.

When he reached out to see if we’d be interested in shooting he and Sarah’s reception, we were totally flattered and excited. Being fans of his work, we were eager to finally meet him when the day came. Then came Sarah, an amazing soul who loves animals, is brilliant, kind, and funny. As we learned more about her, we couldn’t help falling in love. Her personality is as good as they come. Meeting these two for the first time was so cool. We instantly hit it off, too, and there’s nothing better than when that’s the case.

It’s really cool to see these two together and the way they compliment one another. They’re so good to each other and their love is evident.

Though we didn’t spend as much time together as we’d liked, a friendship was born. We even got the pleasure of doing breakfast tacos with them the next morning before we made the trip back home. To say that Nigel and Sarah are awesome people is an understatement. They’re flat out incredible. We can’t wait to visit OKC again just so we can hang out with them.

We hope you guys enjoy the photos below! They had their wedding months before, but the reception was as epic of a time as if it had all happened in one single day. Congrats to Nigel and Sarah. Keep killing it, guys!

Take care and talk soon!
