To date, I&#8217;ve had the honor of photographing more than 400 weddings. Which means, I&#8217;ve seen a <span class="caps">LOT</span> of stuff. Good stuff. Bad stuff. Awesome stuff. Sweet stuff. Cool stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. One of the things which I see a lot of are bridal party gifts. I feel like girls have the gift thing down pretty pat. There are tons of cute options that are all ending up being useful, but guys? Well&#8230;sometimes the guys need a little help. I mean, really&#8230;tie clips? No offense to anyone out there, but everytime I see a guy get a tie clip, I just envision collections of them ending up in the bottom of a drawer somewhere never to be looked at or used again. Maaaaybe that&#8217;s just me and my experience having recently found my husband&#8217;s stash of tie clips, but I&nbsp;digress.</p> <p>My point is, why not get your groomsmen something that is not just cool, but useful? Something that won&#8217;t end up held captive in a junk drawer. You love these awesome dudes in your life so much you want them standing with you at this very important moment (annnnd you&#8217;re spending hard earned moolah on them as well), it&#8217;s time to make it worth it! Enter: <a href="https://www.groovyguygifts.com/" target="_blank" title="Groovy Guy Gifts Main Site">Groovy Guy Gifts</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>I have to admit I didn&#8217;t know anything about them when we met and they asked me what I thought of their products. Of course, I can&#8217;t give feedback without trying out some stuff, so I took a look at the stuff they have. Wow! So much more cool stuff that was waaaay better than what was available in 2007 when I was looking for my own wedding! Most of their stuff has a refined, rustic feel which works for &#8220;man&#8221; gifts, but the big bonus is that they&#8217;re pretty much all things you can envision guys actually enjoying and using&nbsp;again.</p> <p>I decided to try the whiskey rocks (not so secret, secret: I <span class="caps">LOVE</span> whiskey). Truthfully, I&#8217;ve been wondering what the hype is about as I know they hit the market hard a few years ago. I couldn&#8217;t get past thinking they must give off some kind of taste or something and I just muddled along with my ice. So I thought this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go. When the rocks arrived, the etching they had done on them was beautiful. The stones were nicely uniform (about a cubic inch big or so) and just plain looked cool. After giving them a quick wash and dry with some dish soap I tossed them in the freezer. I ended up pouring one of my favoite whiskeys over them. Since I know the flavor profile so well, I figured I&#8217;d be better able to tell if the rocks altered anything taste&nbsp;wise&#8230;</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/11/30/large_102845c009e5e3a4cf1f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/11/30/large_111b4a61c40aa4d703db.jpg" /></p> <p>Well&#8230;I was kinda right. They did change the taste, but for the better! I didn&#8217;t realize how much the ice was <span class="caps">OVER</span> chilling the whiskey and masking some of the more subtle flavors and characteristics. The rocks didn&#8217;t chill it&#8230;more like cooled it. Probably what I imagine to be more of a &#8220;proper&#8221; tasting level. (Full disclosure: I&#8217;m <span class="caps">NOT</span> a whiskey expert and don&#8217;t claim to be, I just am a big fan who likes all kinds of it!) The stones were not awkward at all in the cup (I worried about them clanking around or smashing my teeth but there were no such issues). They also kept their chill for quite a while. I love how start to finish, the glass was &#8220;pure&#8221; and as it should&nbsp;be.</p> <p>So, if you&#8217;re in the market for a cool groomsman gift (or really any &#8220;man&#8221; gift) and that guy happens to enjoy some whiskey from time to time, you might want to check out these rocks from <a href="https://www.groovyguygifts.com/collections/affordable-man-gifts-personalized/products/set-three-whiskey-stones" target="_blank" title="Groovy Guy Gifts Whiskey Stones">Groovy Guy Gifts</a>. They were great and also, more affordable than many that I&#8217;ve seen sold in stores, even with the personalization! Winning all&nbsp;around!</p> Thu, 30 Nov 2017 22:24:53 +0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/nov/30/groomsmen-gift-idea/Sarah & Eric's Wedding: Rust Manorhttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/oct/21/sarah-erics-wedding-rust-manor/<p>Sarah and Eric&#8217;s wedding day was gorgeous! Sunshine and blue skies (and of course a healthy dose of happy friends and family scattered all about). Rust Manor in Leesburg, <span class="caps">VA</span> was the perfect setting for these two love birds to share their vows to eachother. I was swooning over Sarah&#8217;s ridiculously gorgeous lace dress (that she totally rocked) and I had loved Eric&#8217;s two tone navy/black tux&#8230;both of which were classic with a twist of modern! Eric happens to be a super talented professional opera singer (as are several of their friends) so you could imagine how awesome it was when Eric and his friends spontaneously serenaded Sarah in the reception&#8230;so awesome! (Not to mention, this crowd could&nbsp;<span class="caps">DANCE</span>!)</p> <p>Check out their photos below and leave them some love in the&nbsp;comments!</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_4dd3bb9e9717ff0f7ff5.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_7bd3872b7706ea1bbea3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_c8664fecf82e12817ce1.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_151f6d17f4662c4b275c.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_e74d2065094b1dbaae67.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_3da41106f1bb71488a03.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_b1a67c95f6a419c4e48e.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_3915c49d30e5db376d69.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_ba2627d129e46cf7cbf5.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_e67b5be2148f20996e92.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_cda23d41a21a4c0bf6c5.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_a017a0847fa2138d9950.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_8c19eb95a28c9cb32f0e.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_59a63da46a8f81a34e46.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_6b6a838f1a20721e7e5b.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_a694289c45174fc1eaed.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_fe2994d7a53a19d39386.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_27844c841f6c4e431560.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_19d4702c4955903bc8b9.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_971b338ef65c036d9a61.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_cdb1bdd8b26b799350bf.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_c7492d02c608f8c34ad3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_8c40ed755077db2c8acb.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_d464ea292c87a9afc185.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_6cef1ccbfe510cac734a.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_0ded4858e661b2c0112a.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_5784c29481b380763ade.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_59959476c3e774768073.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_4183a60eb80ec599a83f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_1fce1577e0a8483df565.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_b77ad6fae2fcbc156591.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_7c023dd8c1d420383935.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/21/large_dc9c59a28fdae3be6950.jpg" /></p> Sat, 21 Oct 2017 17:39:00 +0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/oct/21/sarah-erics-wedding-rust-manor/Jess & Lindsay: Briarwood Inn Wedding Golden, COhttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/oct/20/jess-lindsay-briarwood-inn-wedding-golden-co/<p>Jess and Lindsay&#8217;s day didn&#8217;t start off quite how they planned, the torrential rain all day long threw a bit of a monkey wrench in that! After much wishful thinking and hoping (and tons of analyzing radar screens on smart phones) they decided to bring the ceremony indoors at the cozy Briarwood Inn. The staff and friends and family all pitched in to transform the dining room. They even found a way to hang the 1,000 paper cranes that Jess and Lindsay folded together before the wedding to perfectly adorn the ceremony&nbsp;space.</p> <p>Ultimately, the day ended up wonderful and I felt honored to bear witness and record the love between these two and their friends and family. I think it&#8217;s so awesome that two these two incredible people met by chance while Jess was on a business trip in North Carolina. They didn&#8217;t get eachother&#8217;s numbers after they had talked all night and parted ways which I think made the Gods of Fate a little peeved that these two didn&#8217;t get the message because they brought the two together again a few weeks later when Jess went back to the same restaurant on another business trip! That time they got the hint and it was the start of something&nbsp;beautiful.</p> <p>Please leave your love and congrats for Jess and Lindsay below after you check out their awesome sneak peak&nbsp;photos!</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_a216af735d8adf801099.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_2751ce326606d5868750.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_38b8d755b9003dfb6fc5.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_ca71c28bb3de36d37103.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_bfe8e2d4c781a8b33285.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_7ac3f3448b427a473c6d.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_965005174de575824407.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_a4e3d3f5161e3d64398f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_088973e896536ab3a055.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_15e0542401aa1ceab7ab.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_529aece9e36c160b666f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_5985ac74852d698d44d7.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_2b345e9892b6e9d4a42d.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_2cea6a80a94c1593cd0c.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_e036ba73a625293f495b.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_20ee88e66159e4263e9f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_c70da31e4535903873ca.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_c39e00bca7ee137847b4.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_7656d4e8a96162773512.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_cbde3093f8e87cd700b3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/10/20/large_0eeb18579a8364a9178c.jpg" /></p> Fri, 20 Oct 2017 00:22:00 +0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/oct/20/jess-lindsay-briarwood-inn-wedding-golden-co/Christina and Chris: Married in Eagle Vail!http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/sep/21/christinachris/<p>&nbsp;Christina and Chris celebrated their wedding at the Eagle Vail Pavillion surrounded by family, friends, and of course, mountains! The two couldn&#8217;t stop smiling all day&#8212;and for good reason! Their &#8220;happily ever after&#8221; has been a long time in the making. I couldn&#8217;t have been more honored to have photographed for them and share in all the love and fun. They put so much heart and soul into all the <span class="caps">DIY</span> design elements (I adored the &#8220;ski slope&#8221; direction signs and the ceremony gateway doors) and even more effot into a beautiful choreographed first dance.

babies Tank and London) for their enagement session! It was a beautiful day to explore around the <a href="https://sites.google.com/site/tihsreed/" target="_blank" title="Tihsreed Lodge">Tihsreed Lodge</a> in Florissant, Co. I had done some winter portraits at Tihsreed a few months ago and when Sam told me she was hoping for an engagement session location that celebrated the Colorado mountains and potentially had some awesome turning colored Aspens for Fall, I thought of Tihsreed. <br /><br />These two highschool sweethearts are so easy going and super sweet with eachother that I couldn&#8217;t stop smiling the whole session. Check out their gorgeous photos (complete with some of the most awesome alpenglow I&#8217;ve ever seen on Pikes Peak!) and leave them some love in the comments&nbsp;below!</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_b3f4062a66d7364e4278.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_3ecec543f89f61078ba3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_d0fa816a057bfab3b7c6.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_b20da9f5dd13c3a145e7.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_d71029a84bd9e904637b.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_5969d97ec9e327af56db.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_7ddd0488befe8577d1ee.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_72392253db57a92d2cf6.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_cc6bdca38d4cd7ba43ae.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_dc499917071f334ffb7c.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_8d0cfeef6683c8d026b3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_00a79d9b23e0fb482a11.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_28ccef12df39d8c8f5d3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_c2e84a0fec9f38b6bade.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_a4ab6c63b4aeea9b8ae8.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_5ff5eaad197c7f7c3c62.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_4987ec366c7412a7709b.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_3c4eb532e9bc0957e7ba.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_5215f132d9cc52b08d4a.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_85ab48acf5f03c6b0354.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/09/19/large_33b1a482fc1b2d1ebc9d.jpg" /></p> Tue, 19 Sep 2017 15:00:00 +0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/sep/19/samantha-tims-colorado-engagement/Jess & Lindsay: Guanella Pass Adventure Engagement Sessionhttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/26/JessLindsayEngaged/<p>Jess and Lindsay met by chance when Lindsay was on a business trip.

From mountaintops at 11,600+ feet to ice melt river rapids to aspen tree groves, we celebrated their love, adventure session&nbsp;style.</p> <p>Check out their session below and leave them some love in the&nbsp;comments!</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_7e29d7f1ba1eae93a9b9.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_84f8b4bb28fbf3737210.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_74e6f0a91adb306778a9.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_7a6d6bb8712ed0373921.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_52fc28683c563a3fed8f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_ada7863e06951bde28ea.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_9411168649dc98274361.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_058339e657cc221514bd.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_25f5d9ed964c7df81a21.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_31dbe30da0365c84fd71.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_d3189fd58e9a9c52395a.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_cc2b002267802f2937c6.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_b1fc92f735cfc9e09961.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_824763bfc3265fd70d0d.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_3f03aed961ea045cfd99.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_04d0f93f391d129abe6f.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_89d89fb694e9ef292874.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/26/large_b561c99c6b2ee5b7ce80.jpg" /></p> Wed, 26 Jul 2017 01:47:00 +0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/26/JessLindsayEngaged/Summer and Tim: Oatlands Historic House and Gardenshttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/25/Summer-and-Tim/<p><span class="dquo">&#8220;</span>Hold up, Lisa! You <span class="caps">JUST</span> posted an Oatlands wedding the other day,&nbsp;right?!&#8221;</p> <p>Yup! You&#8217;re right! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending my entire weekend at Oatlands. Between weddings and rehearsals, and more weddings it was one fun filled weekend in Leesburg for me! What was awesome about it though was that each wedding was so different! I love the diversity of Oatlands and both wedding ceremonies and receptions were in completely different parts of the gorgeous&nbsp;property.</p> <p>For Summer and Tim&#8217;s wedding, the theme was &#8220;You Give Me Butterflies&#8221;. Butterflies were everywhere and it was gorgeous! Just wait until you see Summer&#8217;s custom created dress that was just <span class="caps">FILLED</span> with butterflies! (Seriously, my jaw dropped and it took me a good 10 minutes to pick it up off the floor after seeing this dress.) The couple exchanged heartfelt vows in the gardens before joining their guests for a truly romantic night of dinner and mingling under the canopy of historic trees and&nbsp;starlight.</p> <p>Check out all the romance and beauty below and leave some love for Summer and Tim in the comments&nbsp;below!</p> <p><img

+0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/25/Summer-and-Tim/Jenna & Ross: An Oatlands Weddinghttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/19/JennaRoss/<p>I met Jenna and Ross just a few weeks before their wedding. Yup. That&#8217;s right. A few weeks! Most couples book around 9-12 months out from their wedding, but Ross just recieved orders from the Marines and they just so happend to be on the complete other side of the world!! Given the burden it would be for their family and friends to celebrate with them if they had to travel, they decided to make it happen just two weeks before they had to leave. Jenna and Ross are living proof that with a little help from your friends, family, and vendors, you can pull together a beautiful celebration in no time at&nbsp;all!</p> <p>Check out their gorgeous day below and leave them some love in the&nbsp;comments!</p> <p>Vendors:</p> <p>(Your&#8217;s Truly!) <a href="http://lovesomephoto.com" target="_blank" title="Lovesome Photo">Lovesome

+0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/19/JennaRoss/Ashley & Jason's Maroon Bells Adventure Sessionhttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/13/AshleyJason/<p>Wow oh, <span class="caps">WOW</span> am I excited to share these gorgeous images with you! When Ashley suggested Maroon Bells, just outside of Aspen, Colorado as a possible adventure session location, I nearly jumped the moon! As the most photographed spot in all of Colorado, it&#8217;s a sought after location for reasons that will be obvious as soon as you start scrolling&nbsp;through!</p> <p>Now you may be asking yourself, what is an adventure session? Well, it&#8217;s born from an engagment or couples session, but it&#8217;s done in a place that&#8217;s far mor epic than just a nice neighborhood park. It&#8217;s also a session designed around things you like to do as a couple, whether it&#8217;s hiking, biking, rafting, rollerblading, rock climbing&#8230;really whatever it is you guys love to do as a couple, we&#8217;ll go do it and document it with some pretty killer photos! (If you&#8217;re interested in booking your own adventure session, shoot me an email!)<br /><br />In Ashley and Jason&#8217;s case, they have a huge appreciation for the area they live in and they love spending quite time alone in the gorgeous parks Colorado has to offer. Although we kept the session low key, I couldn&#8217;t have had more fun exploring the area and seeing some pretty cute visitors along the way (some marmots and deer made appearances as we&nbsp;hiked).</p> <p>My favorite part of the session though might have been when Ashley was talking about when she first met Jason. She said from right away she knew she wanted to hold on to him because she could instantly tell what a good soul he had and he was most definitely &#8220;one of the good ones&#8221;. Aw! I love hearing how much couples appreciate eachother to the fullest and these two definitely do! Check out their photos below and leave them some love in the comments while you&#8217;re at&nbsp;it!</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_c73c9c63d410bccb20ce.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_eb6a8747a041f343f578.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_9af25f72735caa03d7cc.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_862f93c00cddce979083.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_199799cb6b4b383e7e88.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_bfe8a1a17388bedd6fdb.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_ee57e7316afa384cef9a.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_4077f10e07e1bdec0edb.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_912910a2a8e984b6a047.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_96e8180859793651fd02.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_8a4dbdbe45548c046c86.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_6136e269762163baa286.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/softbox/photos/2017/07/13/large_630ed63aad4990e07e7f.jpg" /></p> Thu, 13 Jul 2017 20:43:00 +0000http://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jul/13/AshleyJason/Atrium at Meadowlark: Kallen and Christopherhttp://blog.lovesomephoto.com/2017/jun/17/KCWedding/<p>Kallen and Christopher&#8217;s wedding was beautiful and filled with history and love. These two super smart love birds met as middle schoolers at a summer space camp!! As they got to know eachother more, their families saw their connection and found ways to allow them to stay connected and visit one another despite living half a country apart from one another. Eventually, they both wound up at college together and the rest is&nbsp;history!</p> <p>Set in the always stunning, Meadowlark Gardens, the two exchanged vows in a ceremony lead by both Kallen&#8217;s cousin and father and spent the rest of the night celebrating with friends and loved ones. Even though the rain plagued us on and off throughout the day, Kallen and Christopher handled it with grace and amazingly,&nbsp; it stayed away during the ceremony. I loved the little personal touches Kallen wanted like the lace on her dress (made from the same lace maker as Princess Kate&#8217;s dress!) matched the lace on her Charm City Cakes wedding cake and also recreating recreating her school dance photos with her friends from high school (the same group has been in attendance for each one of their special occasions, awww!). I also got a glimpse into a funny family tradition of &#8220;sneak attacking&#8221; people with clothespins. Apparently what started as a silly prank many many years ago by Kallen&#8217;s grandfather has turned into a family game every time they all get together. Someone even got me without me knowing it. I got back to my car at the end of the night to take off my camer harness and found one clipped to me! Ha&nbsp;ha!</p> <p>Check out their photos below and be sure to leave the happy couple some love in the comments&nbsp;section!</p> <p>Vendors:</p> <p><strong>Photography: </strong><a
