Kylie & Devon {Rexburg Engagement Photographer}

On Saturday we beat the rain and stuck around town to capture this beautiful couple’s engagements. Devon flew in for the weekend (and pictures) so I am glad we moved our session time up and didn’t get poured on. While we wanted to use some other locations, the rain last week made some areas too muddy for us, and the approaching rain storm left Idaho Falls out of the options.

Kylie is absolutely stunning and her baby blues perfectly complement Devon’s brown eyes.  This couple coordinates their outfits without being ‘matchy matchy’ -They have complementing colors, patterns, and textures. We caught some flowering trees at the tabernacle, some of the last ones left.

Congratulations Kylie & Devon on your engagement and your upcoming wedding in August!

Aaron & Savanah

We had all sorts of weather for this engagement session. A little wind, snow, sunshine – it was kind of crazy! I am so glad I got to meet and work with Aaron & Savanah. They were such a fun couple to works with and took direction so well. I love it when couples come with a few ideas of their own – see twirling photos!

Style Guide – Preparing outfits for your session

Not sure what to wear for your pictures and they are tomorrow?!? Been there, felt that way. Instead of getting overwhelmed looking at your closet thinking, “what the heck do we wear?”, check out these easy and quick tips to achieving a look you want:

COLOR:

  • Don’t be afraid to be color coordinated! It’s okay for you to have the same color on, as long as we don’t make it too matchy-matchy.
  • Don’t be afraid of color itself. Don’t get sucked back into the old trend of all black or white tops with jeans. While this can be an okay starting point, this isn’t 2000. Let’s mix it up a little by:
  • Choose prints and textures mixed with solids. This is my favorite way to mix things up within a couple or family and is so easy to implement.
  • Choose a color that each family member can wear that complements each other.

LAYERS:

  • This is a simple way to change up your look! You can choose a basic bottom and top and use patterns& textures to add variety to the layers you add. Using undershirts, jackets, sweaters, or vests are just some ways to add layers.

ACCESSORIES:

  • Jewelry can add dimension to your outfit. I recommend choosing a necklace that is symmetrical so that you don’t have to worry about it being perfectly aligned.
  • Scarves, bracelets, earrings, belts, hairbands & bows, and even hats are all great ways to bring interest to your clothing and can easily be switched out to alter your look.

Sage & Rachel {Rexburg Engagement Photographer}

I met this couple through Thumbtack and I absolutely loved working with them. We headed to the hills for their session to take advantage of the beautiful snow and trees up there! Sage was just in town for the weekend to officially propose and take engagement photos. Rachel and Sage were such naturals in front of the camera, I swear I hardly even had to help with posing! And they were up for anything – trekking through mid-calf high snow, braving the cold, and making snow angels!

Milo & Kelee {Rexburg Engagement Photographer}

A year or so ago I took some portraits of Milo – a few weeks ago I got to take his & Kelee’s engagement photos! I loved working with them as they braved the bitter cold for their session. They were total troopers and we got great photos!

Tashina & Chad {Wedding Photographer}

Tashina & Chad got married in the beautiful Logan, UT LDS temple. It was an absolutely wonderful day, and we had warm weather to celebrate. They got married just 11 days before our little one arrived, so glad they tied the knot when they did! So glad they braved the cold we had in Rexburg to photograph their bridals.

So happy that these two have found each other, with a little help from friends! Thank goodness for people who answer promptings to introduce people to one another. So excited for my sister in law and her soon to be hubby. They look so happy together don’t they? Congrats Tashina & Chad on your engagement 🙂 Can’t wait for the wedding next month in Logan, Utah!

We met in Idaho Falls for these pictures, and used two popular areas, Tautphaus Park and Sportsman Park.blog_01 blog_02 blog_03 blog_04 blog_05 blog_06 blog_07 blog_08 blog_09 blog_10 blog_11

Jason & Elise {Rexburg Engagement Photographer}

This is my awesome brother-in-law and his sweet bride to be. We had all gone camping as a family the week before and I was reminded of this beautiful location.  I am so glad they were good with using it! The photos turned out great 🙂
