Log Haven Lovely


Log Haven Wedding

SOOO we offically closed on our new house last night!! Which means I’ve got a lot of work to do. In light of this, I’ve decided to take a blogging & social media hiatus until the end of the month. I am just not a good multitasker so I’m hoping if I can shut my work brain off, at least as much as possible (I’ll still be answering emails and booking weddings plus shooting a bit) then I’ll be much more efficent setting up our new home. It’s already lovely, but completely grey. Grey walls, carpet, tile, granite. Just a little too bland for my palette. So there’s painting, wall papering, and colorifying to do plus that not fun packing things up and actually moving part. BUT I know it’s going to be worth it.

With that said, I’m leaving you today with a lovely Log Haven wedding I photographed two weekends ago. This couple is one of the kindest around, so no surprise their families and friends followed suite. The groom is a veterinarian and his now wife loves animals too, so their dogs joined the days festivities, even walking down the aisle. I loved it and feel so lucky to have such incredible people trust me with their most important memories.

At the wedding parties request we did a few “running away from the dinosaur” shots (there are other versions where I left room to photoshop in that dinosaur…can’t wait to see that, but…

…the best part was the moment after when they realized all of Log Haven’s regular restaurant patrons had been watching out the window in a confused stupor.

I’m not gonna lie. Things have got a little crazy around here. So as I’ve mentioned before, we’re in the process of buying/selling our home. And in the midst of that, we’ve been waiting for a job offer that finally came for my husband last week. The job offer is perfect, complete with awesome compensation and benefits, but the timing just screwed things up a bit. We were set to close on our new house yesterday, but found out last minute since Jordan is switching jobs (even though he’s really staying at the same company/job just going from a contract employee to a regular permanent one) our loan people are making him work at least one day on the “new” job before we can buy the new house. SO we’re back to waiting for that. We also had someone make an offer on our current house this week, which we accepted, so it’s now under contract and should close by the end of the month. Of course all of this is crazy good news and we’re super excited, but the day to day living is a bit tricky in the midst of all of this. Saturday I photographed a beautiful wedding at Log Haven but won’t be shooting again until my September wedding. I’ve cut out all portrait shoots for the next month in the meantime so I can make the housing switch smoothly!

BUT there are a few random sessions I haven’t blogged from this summer which I can share with you in the meantime. Today’s session is actually of my brother and his love in life, motocross (+ his truck). I was going to edit more of his session to blog, but that hasn’t happened. So you get to see the album I designed for him instead of individual shots. I’ve never photographed something like this before but I LOVED shooting it for a number of reasons. Fires were burning at the time so we had a super amazing orange sky to work with at the end. It’s fun sharing in my siblings passions via photography. Drew eat, sleeps & breaths this stuff and he’s not too shabby at it either ;)

Coming up with an idea for a personal project is one thing. Finding the time to shoot it is an entirely different task (especially because it’s supposed to be for my fun and enjoyment…) And I know it’s about to look like I only shoot ballerinas for Yesterday’s Thread, but that’s not the case either. It’s just how it’s worked out so far, though I am in no way complaining. You may recognize this talented woman. I photographed her wedding earlier this year and during her bridal session found out she was a classically trained ballerina. When I added her dancing skills to the tiny waist I knew I had to find to fit this dress, I knew Alexis was THE one to bring this beautiful garment to life. I debated about where to shoot this session for a long time and finally decided to try a studio setting so the entire focus would be on the posing/dancing and the dress. I love how classic yet fresh these images feel. It’s all about the light…and being able to dance on your toes like it’s no big deal. Alexis, you are my hero. I SO SO glad we shot these together. And a huge shout out to Tony with Versa Artistry for Alexis’s perfect ballerina look (we took her hair out at the end to play with more motion but we’re obviously not hair artists…so disregard those shots from Tony’s portfolio. Had he come on location with us her “down do” would’ve been fabulous as well).
