CHARLOTTE | NEWBORN {Laramie Newborn Photographer}

We first met the Sander’s Family when we photographed their adorable little boy Patrick. He was so stinkin cute, with that mysterious stare, always SO interested in everything that was going on around him. Over time we have becomes friends with Emily & Phil and were so excited for them when we found out Patrick was going to get to be a big brother! Fast forward a few short months and we would love to introduce you to Charlotte.

Rick and I spent the morning with this wonderful family inside their Laramie, WY home, capturing their new little one in her element. Patrick was SUCH a great big brother. Wherever Rick or I went, there he was. Seeing what we were up to, what Charlotte was up to and making sure everything was going smoothly;) Tiny hands, adorable little features and the world’s cutest feet… it was impossible to leave this session without some SERIOUS baby fever!

Emily & Phil, we are so happy for you two. You are awesome parent’s and Patrick and Charlotte are going to have amazing lives! Thank you for asking us to be a small part of them!

Elena & Matt | Wedding {Della Terra Mountain Chateau}

You may remember Elena & Matt… These two were so awesome and braved the Wyoming cold with us for their fantastic winter wonderland engagement session. It was absolutely beautiful for photos, falling snow, rustic bridges, snow kissed evergreens. I would be lying though if I said we weren’t happy that on their wedding day we were blessed with gorgeous sun, beautiful tall grasses and not a speck of snow in sight! These two made all of their wedding plans from Utah, after falling in love with Della Terra Mountain Chateau in Estes Park, CO.

We were blessed with SUCH a perfect day. Their ceremony in the outdoor chapel was perfect. These two sealed a bottle of sine in leau of a unity candle, something we had never seen before. As we photographed the ceremony I couldn’t help but notice to beautiful tears in the eyes of Katie, Elena’s sister and Matron of Honor. The Hughes family knows how to love and it was fantastic to see their Father filled with joy and he gave away his youngest daughter.

Elena & Matt were awesome, they walked all over the wilderness with us as we photographed their bridal formals. They came back out with us at sunset and the entire night was FILLED with amazing moment’s captured by our lens. Legendary toasts, touching first dances, so many friends and family. These two are well loved and once you’ve met them you know exactly why. They are some of the most genuine, nice and caring clients we have ever worked with!

Elena & Matt, we will you all the best. We cannot wait to see what is next for you two! Thank you for trusting us to capture this day for you!

 

 

Erica & Matthew | Wedding {Casper WY}

Erica & Matt are amazing clients. Their love for one another is surpassed only by their love for God. We absolutely love shooting at fantastic venue’s designed for the perfect wedding don’t get me wrong. There is something about a young couple saying their ‘I Do’s’ inside of a gorgeous church that I just love. These two recited their vows in front of their friends and family and before the Lord at St. Anthony’s in Casper, WY. What a GREAT start to their marriage.

Rick and I loved so many things about this wedding. The fantastic people that we got to meet, the gorgeous color palette they designed all their lovely details around and especially the way they chose to make their day unique and special to them. This started with Erica not only having a first look with Matt but also with her father. Rick remembers talking with her dad just before the first look. He asked him if he thought he might be emotional, Erica’s father assured us (in his best tough WY Dad voice) that he would not. But when his ‘big girl’ walked towards him and he saw her in her dress for the first time you better believe those tears came. After a heart felt ceremony they danced the night away at the Ramkota. Highlights include the dance floor being absolutely packed, a special toast from Erica’s ‘nephew’ and the bridesmaids surrounding Erica to reveal that her dress was convertible! They literally removed all the train, the tulle, the layers and she got to show off the most fantastic party dress for the rest of the night.

Erica & Matt, we are thrilled that we got to work with you two. A love like yours doesn’t come around very often, we were honored to be able to capture it for you!

Rick and I had SO much fun with Erica’s Dad. He was an absolute sweetheart and we just had to show you the following photo. Throughout the day he would pop in and out of our poses grabbing shots that he would call ‘Photos Of Opportunity’ LOVE THAT! Here he is caught in action!

 

 

Mia | 3 months {Cheyenne, WY}

Meet Mia… She smiles ALL the time, can already lay on her stomach while holding up her head AND happens to have some of the best parents a girl could ask for. We were so happy to get to spend the morning with Alyssa & Jonathan, capturing every little smile Mia treated us to. Newborn sessions can be tough sometimes. We really are on their schedule and babies need a lot of things. Sleep, feeding, cuddles and sometimes they are just really camera shy. Mia was an absolute dream to photograph. She smiled, cooed and rolled her way around so interested in our cameras and what we were doing. It was like she was showing off for us!

She is ADORABLE right? Well if you need a ‘cute fix’ be sure to check back with our blog, cannot wait to see this little doll VERY soon for her 6 month session. Time is flying, though I bet it is going even faster for her happy parents.

Here are a few of our FAVE shots from Mia’s session:
