Never have I met a sweeter pair than Shannon and Hadley. We ventured up to Antelope Island for their stormy engagement session and got rained on, hailed on, wind swept and somehow they STILL managed to be the cutest ever. Not even the less than perfect weather could put a damper on the love Shannon and Hadley have for each other. We ended up getting rained out (so part 2 coming soon!) but they were so go with the flow and totally had fun with the crazy weather we were having. I love couples like these and am so thankful they chose me to document their sweet love!!

Sometimes you just have those shoots that you come back to knowing yes – this – THIS is what I want to create more of – more emotion, more love, more awesome light, more authenticity. This is one of those shoots. If you’re familiar with my recent work you know that in-home sessions are my new favorite. They’re so cuddly, and real, and authentic and, well, that’s pretty much what I love about photography in the first place. This winter I attended PhotoNative, an amazing conference/workshop/retreat for photographers and got to shoot with the exquisite India Earl for this session and magic was made. Just see for yourself.

Cuddly

OK so let’s talk about this sessions light. Like are you kidding?! What a perfect winter evening to capture Sarah and Josh’s perfect love. It was freezing, and windy but you would never know. They danced in the middle of the road, frolicked through the snow, snuggled close, and all the while I was pretty much melting into puddle of mush behind my camera lens – these two are ADORABLE I tell you – straight adorable. It was such a treat to watch these two bask in each other’s love. Of course we had the help of some magical ladies: Steph – thanks for always making my brides look stunning, Natalie for giving my brides the dress of their dreams, and Mae for creating floral masterpieces that complete any session. It fills me with pride to be working alongside some of the best in the biz!

Perfect

Well the snow is finally gone and the sun is showing its face a bit more, but I am still SWOONING over these winter sessions! Don’t get me wrong I’m loving this warmer weather, but I know it won’t be long until I’m craving these snowy shoots. They’re just so dreamy! Sadie and Alex were the absolute best to work with and their sweet love was the perfect parallel to our winter wonderland. And can we just talk about Sadie’s outfit?! Talk about dreamy. That skirt! I die. Natalie of Natalie Wynn Design is a genius. Sometimes, couples have this comfort level about them that’s unmatched and these two definitely had it. It makes the day so relaxed and lovely, and is my absolute favorite.

Thank you to Bachman Florals for creating the perfect piece to complete Sadie’s look and my girl Steph for rocking hair and makeup as always.

Jill and Majhor were a DREAM to shoot. Not only are they adorably in love but so easygoing and up for anything. Their playfulness made my job easy as we traipsed around Antelope island chasing that creamy evening light. Antelope island is one of my favorite spots and I’m so glad the sun finally decided to show its pretty little face! We even saw a few buffalo. Take a peak and get lost in their sweetness. It is truly the best.

Also, shout out to Steph for once again killing it with hair and makeup and Janay Marie for always creating stunningly, beautiful dress designs. You two ladies are the real deal.

Love

This session seriously made my heart so happy and long to do these in home sessions weekly. It is soooo much fun to be inside when it’s so cold outside and just stay inside and take cozy warm pictures. I also attempted at my very first video, EVER. The full video is at the end of this post! I am excited to announce that I will be offering a free love video to the next 3 people that book an at home couple session with me!

After that I will start charging a low rate to include video with your sessions until I build my portfolio and feel confident in my work. Can’t wait to start on this video journey and hope that you guys are as excited as I am! If you want to snag one of those 3 spots send me an email at info@kelsieemmphotography.com with the subject IN HOME SESSION. Thanks guys!

In home sessions are my new favorite! So if you have been considering having one this week is the time to schedule one. I will be offering a special deal coming a little bit later this week. SO stay tuned! This was my first in home COUPLE session, and like I said. New favorite. Honestly, I loved how relaxed it was. Richie and Shyanne were amazing to work with, and the things Richie would say to make Shyanne laugh and be herself also had be laughing behind the camera. These two=photographer’s dream.

If you don’t follow this babe of a babe then you probably should ASAP. You can check out her site right here. I have grown to love Dani so much. We have been working together for a few months now, shooting weekly and she is just the real deal you guys. She is so genuine, so kind, and never forgets to make sure I know that she appreciates me and my talent. There aren’t a lot of people like that in the world that I feel like truly take time out of their day to make sure others know that they are appreciated, but Dani is one of them. So glad to call her not only a client but a true friend. Had to share some of what me and her create.

Ali and Jace were so fun to work with on this shoot. The original plan was to shoot outside but there was a major rainstorm which brought us into the Ogden Click. I couldn’t be more thankful that the weather brought us inside. I love that because of the overcast sky we had a different kind of light that brought so much mood to our shoot. These two, Ali is just gorgeous and her hair and makeup was done by Steph, and her dress was designed by Natalie Wynn Design. How can you not swoon over that dress? Seriously perfection.

This boudoir shoot with Savannah was so fun to do this last year. Savannah is such a sweetheart and I loved working with her on these. Her hair and makeup was done by my girl Bailey (@schiessstyles) and it couldn’t have been more perfect for this shoot. I also loved this location! This happens to be a friend’s house up in Ogden Canyon. How pretty is all the wood detailing and windows? All the light is seriously a photographer’s dream. I don’t typically do these sessions, so it was a fun shoot for me to switch things up!

I love her sheer loose fit robe. It added the perfect drama to her pictures. 2017-01-05_00152017-01-05_0016Savannah in this boudoir shoot was so fun. This shot specifically where her hand is swiping away her hair with that playful smile is perfect. Her sheer robe sliding off her shoulders is just everything.

This shoot with Krystiana was a fun creative shoot I put together to try and push my creativity and inspire me. Which it did. I loved working with Bailey Schiess (@schiessstyles) and Krystiana. The vision started by being inspired by flowers and as I started brainstorming I remembered this gorgeous dress from Dresses by Danielle and Marlene Hart Designs that I had previously shot in this shoot. I knew I had to shoot with it again.

So my neighbors that live across the street had recently refinished their bedroom with the original hard wood floors and it was gorgeous the instant I saw it I knew I wanted to shoot there. They are so nice and pushed back moving in their furniture to allow me to do a shoot. They are seriously the best. The shoot really came to life one we all got in there and the flowers being scattered on the ground honestly wasn’t even really the idea until I got to the shoot and I knew I just wanted to do something different. Didn’t know if it was going to work or not, but I ended up loving it.

After shooting this shoot I ended up deleting all these pictures before a copy was saved to my computer. Luckily they were all edited and I was able to screenshot them from off of my Lightroom. SO they aren’t the best quality. But, I still had to share because I loved this shoot for how different it was for me.
