Somer & Charlie Engagement pt.1

October 23, 2020

When Somer and Charlie reached out to us to be their wedding photographers, we could not be more excited. They have such an amazing energy, and their love is so real and amazing!

As we planned this session, we really wanted to get some mountain views in the background since they live in the mountains. As you know, some things don’t always go as planned. We arrived at our destination (which usually has amazing and sweeping views of the mountains) and were met with such dense fog, even when I was up close there was fog between me and my camera that made it be hazy!

Our motto is always to go with the flow, and to make magic out of what is happening around us– we want things to be captured how they are, and to make moments memorable. It wouldnt be special if we were always trying to make every little thing perfect. So we continued on in the fog.

As I was taking photos, Christian and I kept humming aloud the new Taylor Swift album because the vibes were just the SAME, haha!

And man, did the photos turn out SO MAGICAL. It was like Somer and Charlie were the only ones there, and they owned this beautiful forest! I just loved how it turned out, and how much I felt it matched their vibes.

But, since I was on a mission to get them something not foggy, we headed back down the mountain to see if we could catch some unfoggy places. Unfortunately, the light was fleeting fast, and by the time we stopped it was almost completely dark.

I had an idea: I said, lets use my headlights from my car and do something different and fun. Trust me.

I’m not sure if they trusted me in the moment– I dont know if I trusted myself to be honest– but the photos from this turned out to be some of my favorites! Not only that, but sometimes it looks like a sunset photo with the angles that I took!

It was so fun, and it pushed my creativity and just filled my cup so much. Somer and Charlie were absolute champs for trusting me and sticking with it, and I feel so lucky to be their photographer 🙂
