heather + rodney {in love}

Meet Heather and Rodney!  Brett and I have known Rodney for years because he went to the same small private high school that we went to.  Heather is a very good friend of one of our favoritest brides ever, Julia:)

Funny story….after they got engaged they were hanging out with some family and friends.  One friend was Julia, (our past bride I mentioned) and Rodney’s Mom was there as well.  They were discussing who to use for the upcoming wedding and when photography came up, Julia said, “I have the PERFECT photographer for you guys!!”  Then Rodney’s Mom said to Rodney, “I’ve heard that some people you went to school with have a good photography business….”  After they both took turns discussing why THEIR choice for a photographer was better, they finally figured out they were talking about the same people- US. :)

For their session we decided to shoot around Newport on the Levee, which has special meaning to them- we love that!




They met here.:)



They are SOOO adorable.



This is our, “sit like a girl, and sit like a dude” series.

These are so them.



We had gorgeous light that evening….




Love the light….love them!






Her hair blowing in the wind was just perfect…..


The first few shots we did were in a small alleyway.  Brett, AKA “spiderman” scaled this wall to stand on a ledge (one foot) and piping (other foot).  I swear he does this just to freak me out.

(Bobbi, this one’s for you, because I know you love Brett’s antics.)


Rodney and Heather….you guys were troopers.  Thanks for dealing with having your photos taken.  Not SOOOO bad right? :)

We are super excited for your upcoming June wedding!!  It will be so much FUN!!!!

Julia - YES! You know i have been waiting for this post, and here it is :-) Where to begin…. as always, you guys did an amazing job, in fact every time i check the blog, your work just gets better – if that’s even possible! These are two of my favorite people in the whole world, and i think you pegged their personalities to a T. I love the sepia tone shot with the big “Jefferson” in the background; the girl and guy poses are cracking me up; the one where they are sitting on the ground with her head on his shoulder is priceless; The series of shots with the bridge and sunset in the background are steamy – ow! ow! and i must say my favorite fave of the session has to be heather’s hair blowing… how gorgeous is that girl?! Jess and Brett, can’t wait to see you guys at their wedding in June :-)
