Meredith and Josh - Omaha, Lincoln Wedding Photographer

Meredith and Josh!!! I have been waiting and waiting to post this wedding. I was so in love with every little detail of this day. Meredith and Josh's personalities really shined through in their planning. Everything felt so authentic and meaningful. From the bowl of crazy buttons, to the barefoot bride, to 1/2 the wedding party getting up and singing during the reception, this wedding was the amazing.

Housekeeping and Updates

Hey everyone! I have a few pieces of info I'd like to pass along:

  • First off, thanks for the amazing responses to my post on Friday about some assistant positions! I'm going to be emailing all of you back over the next couple of days.
  • And those of you awaiting various other returned emails, I promise I'm not ignoring you. My inbox has about 30 highlighted emails that need answered. I was planning on answering them all yesterday, but I was at home with Lennon all day and had to make the strategic choice of either taking a shower or answering emails during his nap. Sorry, but I picked the shower. :)
  • Congratulations to Rachael, the creator of our photography co-op! She officially gets the keys to the space on Friday. I can't wait to go check it out and meet all the ladies who will be moving in. I'm so excited to be a part of such a creative endeavor.
  • I will be adjusting package and session prices starting on July 1st. Any booked sessions will of course be honored at the current price. Please contact me before the 1st to get booked at the current prices.

Britni and Ryan - Omaha Engagement Photography

Britni and Ryan picked a top-notch-perfect morning for their engagement photos. It was warm - but not too warm. Sunny - but not too sunny. There was also an arts festival going on and we took the ultimate save the date photo in front of a chalk truck. I think chalk trucks trump chalk boards any day of the week.

Chris and Amy Got Married! - Omaha Wedding Photography

Every week when I head to a wedding, I am always so nervous. I'm not afraid I'm going to mess up or do something wrong in some way, but I'm nervous about the actual creation process I'm about to take on. I don't think of myself as simply another wedding vendor who you hire just to be able to check it off the list. I think of myself as someone who is creating images, art maybe, that you will keep for the rest of your life. That is intimidating. Creating something so personal is a huge responsibility and my only true desire is to make you guys happy.

Chris and Amy had such a wonderful and beautiful wedding. I decided to do their entire post in black and white because it seemed so fitting. Their pictures are so full of joy that I wanted the focus to be off of the photo as a whole and on to the subjects. Does that make a bit of sense to anyone else or am I speaking photographer mumbo jumbo?

I am so incredibly proud to share these images. I am consistently seeing growth in my work and it makes me so happy to be able to pass that along to everyone. Thank you so much to Chris and Amy for giving me the opportunity to share their wedding day with them!
