Mikaela & Zach

A couple weeks ago I had the honor of photographing another memorable wedding.  Mikaela & Zach had their ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church on the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus.  St. Thomas Aquinas is very meaningful to them due to their  involvement with the Neman center while in college.  It misted off and on through the day, but that didn’t stop us from going out and doing some fun and creative images at the Capital and UNL campus. The feel of the wedding was simple, elegant and classy.  One of my favorite moments was when they saw each other for the first time and after a hug Zach pulled out one of Mikaela’s flowers from her bouquet.  Some people might lose it, but not Mikaela.  She just smiled.  Many thanks to Melissa at Blooms & Bouquets, who met us on location and fixed the bouquet.  I had such a great time photographing the wedding party everyone had was energetic and photogenic.  Another moment that stuck out to me and the couple was when they got to the Country Club for the reception.  We had about 5 minutes of sunset.  It was gorgeous,  I remember asking for one more shot.  Mikaela and Zach were so gracious in giving me that opportunity.  Here are some images enjoy!

fall creative shoot

Over the past year or so,  I’ve been talking to Melissa at Blooms & Bouquets about doing a creative shoot closer to Halloween.  Blooms & Bouquets not only does great floral arrangements, but their displays are at another level altogether.  I went into the shoot with a vision of how to light the subject and the composition, but quickly changed my mind set, which I’m completely okay with.  The images we created had a different mood and look from other creative shoots in the past.  When initially planning the shoot, I remember talking with Dani and Melissa at Blooms & Bouquets and a non wedding shoot kept coming up.  The only thing remotely resembling a wedding shoot was the flowers, our wonderful model Claire, used as a prop.   antler floral hybrid pieces could be the  trend for next year lol..  I might be the one behind the camera, but there were so many people that contributed. Claire’s hair & makeup was done by Alicia’s Makeup Artistry.   Ellyne Bridal provided the dress, and Blooms & Bouquets provided the floral arrangements and display piece.  One last person to mention is Jeremy Allen Wieczorek a good photography friend who also collaborated and photographed.
