I always have more to say, here’s as much as Scottie let me put on our blog!

Megan’s senior session

Megan was a really fun senior to work with.  She had her own style and we LOVED it!!  We didn’t even really have to pose her.  She exuded confidence as she stood, sat, or lay down exactly how she would if there was not a camera recording her every move.

Megan is really into competitive ballroom dancing, so naturally she wanted her senior pictures to show what she spent most of her time doing in high school (I’m sure studying went somewhere in there as well of course).  We went up to her dance studio to do a quick mini  session before heading off to DC Ranch (which is a shopping center in Scottsdale, Arizona).

My favorite part of this session was that she basically just allowed us to capture her as she really is.  Our goal is always to take pictures that allow a person’s family and friends to see them and say, “wow, that’s SO them!”.  Only, that gets difficult since almost everyone is camera shy.  Megan was like, “here I am, take a picture, hope you like it”.  And we did.

My Little Brother is a grown-up, married man now!

So my little brother Paul snagged himself a hottie and married her!  Scottie and I were both in the wedding (in Tempe, Arizona)… and Scottie was the photographer! Well one of them, there’s no way this would’ve worked (without being super tacky anyways) without the help of our good friend Tim Boyd (you can see more of his photos at www.studio-b-photo.com).

One of the best parts about the wedding was that our family all worked together to pull it off.  My dad performed the ceremony, her dad played the music, Scottie was the photographer (and groomsman), my other brother and I were both in the wedding party, her uncle was the DJ, and our extended family served as everything from decorators to flower petal pick-er-upers).  It was quite a family affair and it was SOOO fun!  Scottie and I are so used to working at weddings, we hardly ever get to just kick back and party it up a little bit.  This time, after all the pics were done we got to dance the night away with everyone!

So here’s the story told through pictures….

Here’s Anna, the beautiful bride (I told you she’s a hottie!)

Man, I wish I could be as cool as him!

I love how happy they look!  And that’s my blurry father in the far background (sorry dad!)

The mother/son dance was awesome, look at my mom’s expression… so cute!

The best cake war I’ve ever seen, it went on for quite awhile too! (the guy on the left is my other brother, Ross).

“You should’ve seen the other guy!”  (he had cake in his eye, so I think that means she won).

My favorite part about the picture is the (apparently) hilarious joke going on in the background. And I LOVE how hard Ross is laughing!

I just put this picture in to re-inforce how much fun it was….not to rub it in to those who weren’t there or anything!;-)

A day on the town with JoEllen and Ryan

If there’s an award for the cutest couple, I think this couple has a good shot at it!  Their interactions during their engagement photo session were just priceless.  They were constantly being all cute together and cracking each other up.  If you look at the pictures carefully enough, you may be able to see actual stars in their eyes!  OK, maybe not, but that would be so cool!

We went to one of our favorite places in the downtown part of Phoenix Arizona to get the “urban” kind of feel for this photo session.  It turned out perfect because her bright yellow shirt contrasted so well with a lot of the backgrounds.  And a sidenote: JoEllen, you are SO beautiful!  I (Breanna) was totally stunned when you first got out of the car! It didn’t take much talent to pull off great pictures of you guys!  The beautiful bride-to-be combined with this  super in love couple made this session a piece of cake!

Adrienne & Mike’s Engagement Session

We went out with Adrienne and Mike to get a few shots of them before their big day so they could have some photos for their save the date magnets as well as some prints hanging in their home for visiting relatives to see on their wedding day. They decided to go for a more romantic style with a lot of close ups and a fairly gentle feel, so we picked Tempe Beach Park (in Tempe, Arizona) since it has the lake and a few other prime spots to catch some great lighting to give that glowing, in love look! We spent a little bit of time hanging out on Mill before the shoot getting to know them so that once we started taking pictures they felt more like we were just having fun with their photographers, and less like they were being attacked by the paparazzi!

My Little Brother’s Engaged!

I never thought that taking engagement pictures of my baby brother could ever be described as feeling “natural” (I mean, I used to change his diapers, you know?!) but it was one of the most comfortable and relaxed sessions we’ve ever had… not to mention it was a ton of fun!  Within the first 5 minutes, Paul had dipped her for a kiss, added in his own props, grabbed her butt for a photo (when my mom wasn’t watching), and manufactured his own super-random brand of poses!  Not to be outdone, Anna threw in her own hottie-toddy style and was able to accomplish some poses that I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to demonstrate to brides for awhile now! It was fantastic… both of them made our job totally easy!  We went over to downtown Mesa, Arizona and did our entire photography session around back alley ways, an old mill with railroad tracks, and the new Mesa Arts Center (which we love)!

We got to try out our whole “prop” idea that we’ve been working towards incorporating into our photos (you’ll have to look at the entire session to see what I mean).  They definitely understood that concept, she even brought a “bride to be” tiara that her maid of honor bought for her bachelorette party… and we didn’t hesitate to use it!

Thanks Paul and Anna, we are very excited to do your wedding photography and we hope it is an amazing day for both of you!
