Had a great time this weekend shooting some engagement photos for RJ and Karah, two motorcycle stunt riders I’ve made videos for in the past.
It’s always nice to shoot photos for people you’ve known for a long time. Me and Jake have known each other for nearly a decade now, having played in a band together for about 5 years. Though we don’t keep in touch as often as we used to when we would have band practice twice a week, I was stoked he asked me to shoot engagment photos for him and his fiance.
We went out to Chalco hills and had to work against a crummy cloudy day and day light savings being that day we had an hour less “sunlight” than we would have had to boot. Luckily with some flash tricks we were able to create some nice light and give the impression of a nice golden hour.
Here’s some photos from their engagement session:
One of the things I love about Omaha is that it’s big enough that it feels like a real city, but small enough that it seems like there’s only ever a few degrees of separation from anyone person. This happened with Brock and Rachelle’s engagement photos – I showed a few of the early shots to my girlfriend and she recognized Rachelle as someone she grew up with and was in the same youth group with. She texted a picture to her mom who sent it off to Rachelle and her mom who were confused how she got it since I hadn’t finished and delivered the session yet.
I absolutely love shooting non-traditional weddings and Emma and Earl’s wedding was anything but.
The two got married on an early Sunday Afternoon at the Lookout Lounge, a music venue where Emma worked and Earl played a number of shows – and eventually proposed to her at one of those shows. The wedding was a short affair that only lasted about two hours and came with one of the most delicious cakes I’ve ever eaten, which was vegan to boot.
Here’s a few photos from their wedding.
A few months ago I snapped a few quick photos for Paige and Nelson for their save the date. They have a lot of family in Hawaii and wanted to get the save the dates out as early as possible, but wanted to do an engagement shoot in the fall. So we snagged a few photos back in January and then I made the trip out to South Dakota for a full engagement session.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session.
Kyle and Jamie decided they were going to get married at the Courthouse at the last minute. They texted me while I was in the middle of shooting a wedding to ask if I would shoot their ceremony at the Courthouse that was to be just them and their parents. Funnily enough, Jamie’s Brother is my room-mate, so I got to make fun of him that I got invited to his sisters wedding and he didn’t.
It was a bit brutal to wake up early in the morning after a late wedding the night before but I definitely think the photos were worth it.
