Ashley & Cody were married on Halloween at Mt. Pisgah and Paul and I couldn’t have had more fun! We loved seeing the guests dressed up and the expressions on the other guests faces as they recognized each other. It was truly a unique and fun wedding!
Ashley & Cody were lucky to have no rain, so they were able to take advantage of the beautiful landscape at Mt. Pisgah, which I believe is perfect all year round.
Thank you, Ashley & Cody for choosing us to document your beautiful day! We wish you only the best in the many years to com.
We stopped advertising for family sessions about 4 years ago and began focusing solely on weddings, and about two years ago we added seniors sessions to our business. I did this for a few reasons, but the biggest reason was that I wanted to document family sessions as more of a story than a posed session, and I felt this was something that wouldn’t be desired by my client’s. So I continued to take family sessions as they came, and kept my past clients because they had become more like friends and they loved it when I photographed a session as a story, rather than solely posed.
Then over the past 6 months or so, I have began to get more feedback from parents that they love it when we photograph a family session as a story. So I tried this over the past 6 months and I have loved it. I smile as I cull the images at my computer and remember how much I loved it when my baby made a specific expression and how much I look forward to those more adolescent interactions and inside jokes with our kids.
So with all of that to say, we are now officially offering family sessions. Once you book your session, we will work with you to find the perfect setting to photograph your family, whether it be your home, a park, or a favorite place that your family enjoys together. I also understand how much parents want that posed picture with everyone wearing their best smile, and this is why we will take a few moments in each session to capture this. I have taken my kids out on several occasions to capture this “perfect” image because I too want this on my wall.
Since our business is mainly weddings and we are very busy with weddings during those sunny months, we will only be taking a handful of family sessions a month. If you are interested in a family session, we book family sessions up to 2 months from booking.
Leah and Chad are our first 2015 couple and we couldn’t be happier to “begin” that wedding year with such a great engagement shoot. They chose a location in Salem where they take their dogs every day, and has some beautiful backdrops. They made our job so easy and we look forward to photographing them again at their wedding.
Kristina and Jerome were referred to us by another talented photographer and friend, and we couldn’t be happier that we get to work with this couple! Kristina and Jerome and very sweet and are easy to photograph! We look forward to their wedding in September of next year!
