I photographed Kimee a few years ago when she was still in high school and have been waiting for her wedding ever since. Silly I know. But true. When her mom contacted me to say she was engaged I was so excited. And then I found out she’d be getting married during my maternity break. I was so sad, but still happy at the thought of shooting her engagements and blacktie session anyway. And then Kimee contacted me a few weeks later to say they’d moved their wedding date to June. Oh happy day! We’re waiting for sunshine, blossoms and flowers to shoot their blacktie session. But lucky for us, their February engagements turned out rather springish as well. It was like 60 degrees out when we shot these and I certainly wasn’t going to complain. I’m so happy Kimee found a Jordan to love. In my opinion, they’re the best kind of husband around
We ended our session and I was super pleased with how everything had gone. The light was almost gone from downtown, but made for some beautiful shades on the buildings as a walked back to my car. And then I turned around to see the sun setting behind the Grand America and thought, DANG I wish I was shooting against that sky (The sky was actually beautiful for most of our session so we tried to get up on top of the library to shoot but sadly found it closed for the winter).
Driving home the sunset just kept getting better and I was dying inside that I couldn’t get to higher ground to photograph it. So I finally just pulled over to the side of the road and shot what I could see, power lines and all. I love sunsets. They’re so amazingly epic sometimes, but only last for seconds. I guess that’s what makes them the perfect little treat at the end of our works days. But of course with clients like Kimee & Jordan, my work feels like a treat so I consider myself very blessed in a continual sunset kind of way!
