SHOWIT – the best website company around. seriously. we’ve had our website with them for a few years, and will continue to have for a lifetime (thanks to the awesome lifetime subscription they let us buy last year)! it’s so great that i even convinced my sister to convert! we can re-model the site as much as we want and as often as we want without any additional fees. this can create addictive personalities, however, as we are, of course, at it again. the new site “Reece & Katrina” has been in the works for far too long, but should finally be going live by the end of this month (I. CAN’T. WAIT.)!!!
anyways…this shoot came about because of SHOWIT (yes, there was a point to the commercial). not only is it a fab website company, but the guys behind the scenes created a community called “showiteers”. in the group are photographers around the world that support, encourage, educate, and all out love on each other. showitteers are UNIQUE, UNITED, and FREE! At the start of 2012, showiteers around the world were encouraged to meet with their regional “share” groups for various reasons. in january, we got together for a live broadcast/interview with the ever fabulous jasmine star. in february, our assignment was to do a shootout, and here’s what we came up with…
being in charge of the redding “region” that spans from chico to southern oregon, reece and i were responsible for planning the shoot. we came up with a fun, ranch styled engagement shoot and had two adorable couples to work with for the day.
many thanks to:
* sarah of about face for her amazing job on make-up (siskiyou county brides, you should definitely get in touch with her)!
* our gorgeous models – johnathan & kristi and matthew & kathleen. (johnathan & kristi own JKD Tack Supply, and it was their barn/pasture that we used in the shoot). it’s so much fun getting married couples to channel their inner, flirty, googly-eyed selves!
* one of my students, montana, for the use of her scrabble game! i’m bowing my head in shame that i don’t own this already.
enough chatter…on with the shoot. enjoy!
i love this bench that belonged to kristi’s grandmother. isn’t it gorgeous?!
we had a blast with these guys and gals…can you tell?of course we had to take a few with kristi and her handsome show horse, diesel.thanks again to everyone that made this shoot possible! we have another shootout assignment for the month of may…i’m thinking urban bride and groom…any takers?!
