This boho inspired bridal session was beyond AMAZING!! I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous ladies bohemian inspired wedding this summer… obviously I couldn’t wait to get her in front of my lens a second time! I love getting intimate one on one time with my brides, no stress of the wedding day, no time restrictions… just us, the dress and the woods!!

There is nothing short of a true love story here! From a chance meeting at a local pub, where she approached him and simply said, “your cute, I think I like you!” to the moment he dragged her out on his fishing boat one chilly morning to a romantic spot on the lake, where a loon sang just moments into his proposal; to the day they finally walked down the flower covered isle filled with close friends and family to celebrate their love for each other and become man and wife! Their bohemian inspired outdoor wedding was something out of a fairy tale, flowers covered everything from the isle, the centerpieces, the archways, even the very crowns upon the brides and bridesmaids heads! Everything was absolutely stunning! As you can imagine, there was an abundance of love and pure emotions felt between the couple and their family as she walked…

This girl is absolutely stunning and seriously rocked the boho look on her senior session in the woods and fields of Hastings! Exploring new places is so exciting! Having never shot at this particular location before I was a little nervous for what kind of lighting I would encounter, what the terrain limitations would be, etc. But I am always up for a new adventure, a new location and a new set of challenges! As we hiked down the ravine past some old mill ruins I quickly realize this was going to be one of my new favorite locations to shoot! After capturing some really great images along the way we finally ended up down along the river which was surrounded my cliffs and gorgeous giant rocks… my type of place for sure!!

This is what photographers do on their days off!!! So we kicked off summer with this amazing hipster style model session along the Vermillion river in Hastings! This girl is an extremely talented model that I cannot wait to get in front of my lens and collaborating again soon! Plus she totally rocked the styling by doing her own hair, makeup and wardrobe! We definitely did some serious exploring that evening; neither of us had ever been there before and it was AMAZING! The small root bound path leading down to the river and following up stream to the huge roaring falls nested along the rocks… to the huge old bridge leading to the high cliffsides overlooking the river… to the tall, wispy field where the sun peaked through the clouds to created beautiful backlight to end an already perfect session!
