I know I always say it…but I am so lucky. I have the BEST bride and grooms. I mean the TOTAL package. Great looking couples that are the nicest people. Stephanie and Josh are all of that…and then some. He is a perfect southern gentleman and she is simply GORGEOUS. I found myself wanting to run out and buy a pair of cowboy boots after I saw the way she rocked hers. I can not wait to shoot their wedding next year. They might just be the real live Ken and Barbie…southern style.
Meet Molly and Ryan. Two of the sweetest people I have ever photographed and they are absolutely “gaga” for each other. This is way obvious in the images from their session. She is a nurse and he is a fireman….how stinkin cute! I couldn’t make that up if I tried. In all seriousness, being a fireman is a huge and important part of their lives. So when it came down to location for the shoot, there was no hesitation to make Ryan’s station the amazing backdrop. I am also happy and honored that they have chosen me to document their big day! I look forward to shooting their wedding next March at The Harn Homestead. Here is to Molly and Ryan….and an amazing future.
Ahhhh…Katie and Jarod. They are pretty much the total package. Both are gorgeous, fit, fun, the nicest people and so so so in love. Katie was the most prepared bride I have ever photographed. She came with her own signs, plenty of outfits and even a football with the wedding date…gotta love that. She even worked a pair of red heals something fierce. We had such a great time and the weather was perfect. I truly wish the best for these two.
“Rain Rain…Stay Away”…that was the motto for this fun downtown engagement shoot. It had been raining for three days straight and it held off just long enough to complete the session. The ground was soggy and everything was wet, but that didn’t phase this couple one bit. They were such troopers and so much fun! With Tiffany’s gorgeous red hair and amazing smile, who needs the sun? And when she pulled out her red umbrella to add to the fun…I just died! So cute! Check it out…
Okay…you probably think I say this about all my clients (love all of them), but this couple really did capture my heart. Not only were they head over heals, truly in love…but they were the NICEST and SWEETEST peeps you will ever meet. Since Russell is in the military (big props), they have moved around a lot. His next assignment will take him to New York, so they are on the fast track to tie the knot in November of this year. I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with them and hope nothing but happiness in their future. Here is what some of our day looked like….simply perfect.
Did you know that you get your very own personalized website with every wedding package at Christie Conyer Photography? A wedding website is a place where you can easily find engagement photos, wedding photos, online-guest book and registry information. It is also an amazing way to share your images with friends and family. Other wedding sites don’t grow and change with you as a couple, while these showcase the evolution from engagement to long after the I-Do’s. Here is an example of one that I am doing for my amazing clients Erin and Mike. They are getting married in October and I can’t wait to showcase their wedding day. To explore all of the bells and whistles of this website go to www.erinandmike.christieconyer.com.
I met Erin and Mike at the OK Bridal Show in July and they had my attention right from the start. I share a lot in common with them…they love shoes, soccer, they were funny and they liked hanging out in Midtown. So when we booked their engagement session, it was a no-brainer to do the shoot on 9th street where the couple spends most of their “date nights”. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and these two were a blast hanging out with. I am really looking forward to the October wedding.
Ahhhh….the engagement shoot. There are so many different styles. Classic, silly, cute, smitten…I mean, I have even seen some as steamy as that hot cologne ad with Victoria and David Beckham. But, no matter the content, the purpose is to document the couples love and promising future that lies ahead of them. But, there are some other reasons engagement sessions can be beneficial.
-First, a chance to get to know your photographer. This is so important. You have too many things to think about on your big day, let alone wondering if you will “click” with your photographer. This is a no brainer.
-Second, you and your fiance will have a better understanding of how things will go on the actual wedding day. Everything from posing to the speed in which your photographer works. And on the flip side, your photographer will get a better understanding of your expectations.
-And lastly, you get to see the photographer’s work before the actual wedding. It’s like taking that sports car out for a test drive on the Autobahn before you buy.
And if you can’t afford to spring for the engagement session (which this single mom totally understands), at the very least try and meet them for dinner or even coffee. There are only a few things that actually live on past the actual wedding date….the dress, the rings and the photographs. Make sure you pick someone who will tell your story the way in which you want it told.
