Occasionally "us" photographers get to plan and participate in styled shoots. This particular one was the doing of an awesome photography group I'm involved with in Colorado called the Pursuit Community. I went on a weekend retreat a few weeks ago where we got to get back to our "roots" per se, and really talk about our businesses and personal lives, as well as spend some time in worship and community. It was an awesome weekend, and I walked away with so many new friendships. Photography can sometimes be a lonely profession when you're not out and about shooting weddings and what not during the weekdays, so getting to collaborate and network with other amazing creatives like myself was such a blessing. It's so funny, because we are all incredibly different, but incredibly alike as well. I definitely found a group of ladies who share similar passions, struggles and lives.
The cool thing about this couple was that they were the worship leaders for our retreat. They actually lead worship at Lifebridge Christian Church in Longmont, so this wasn't their first rodeo ;). Anyways, this photo shoot was a special treat for them because they did not have the most amazing wedding photos, and they look back to that day wishing they did. It's such a testament to the fact that wedding photography is SOOOO important. Now that life is busy and bustling with their twins, it was even more special to step aside and have some photos for themselves. I think my favorite part was hearing Luc sing "Maaaarrrrrrrrryyyyy Meeeeeee" (as all of the lady photographers said YES! with no hesitation---Yes, I heard you Mrs. Kraft, haha). It was pretty funny. Anyways, thank you ladies, and Kat & Luc for such an amazing weekend!
P.S. A little shout out to Lace and Lilies for the beautiful floral crown.
