Have you noticed the trend around Omaha seems to be that everyone’s engagement/senior/wedding photos are placed in the Old Market? While, we are indeed located in the Old Market ourselves, so it’s a convenient location for us, we like to customize our client’s photos as much as possible which includes going on location to various…

I shot engagement photos in the Old Market in October and it’s amazing the versatility that is possible there. It’s no wonder this is a popular Omaha spot to have photos taken! I do love the Old Market area, and when I was away for quite a few years the Old Market was a place I thought about fondly – and often.

Makeup, it can make or break photos. Brides (and anyone getting their portraits taken in general) sometimes don’t know what’s too much or too little and what products to use and how to go about applying them. While exploring the grand expanse of the internets we came across a post from Faeye Photography in Michigan…

Thank you for posting this!

There are still brides that make major mistakes with their makeup on their wedding day. It’s not the day to experiment! Look your natural best. And in order to have one less thing to worry about, I knew I wanted somebody to do both my hair and makeup – both worked out wonderfully.

This is such an adorable story! And how sweet to have everything documented with photos. I’ve seen that more often, lately, a proposal being caught on camera… this seemed so natural, esp. being that you both are photographers. 🙂

What a special way to document that special moment. I do wish I had something like this for my husband and me. 🙂

Engagement pictures don’t have to be awkward and stuffy, think about who you are as a couple and brain storm fun ways to show that off, with a prop, setting or expressions. Be sure you are comfortable in your clothes, with each other and your photographer for the best results! Relax and have fun. When brainstorming…
