The few pictures you have poestd here yesterday are truly exceptional. From the few meetings (pre-wedding in Tennille’s absence) with you you showed true professionalism & organizational skills. You arrived at our home in Westville knew exactly what you wanted in pictures and went right to it You kept Tennille calm & collective and of course ignored the heat wave that overcame us that day (especially in church whew!!)and many outdoor pictures taken The pictures are truly beautiful, and I just can’t wait to see the remainder of them You are definitely highly recommended in my books

Albums are not just for the newly married- these are great for families, babies and seniors and you save special memories to share and enjoy for years ahead! Also a great Christmas gift idea! Get in touch to get your album started right away.

That close-up, of the bride’s necklace… love that. 🙂

Our second bridal show went great.

Stunning pictures,I’ve got to admit I love the way wedding photography has evolved in recent years, the photos and compositions look less staged and more in line with a documentary style of photography, they look so much more natural

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…

Erin O'BrienFebruary 3, 2012 - 4:53 pm

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…

Erin O'BrienFebruary 3, 2012 - 4:50 pm

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.
