INTO THE WOODS


When my friend Kate contacted me a few months back asking to do a little photoshoot collaboration I knew I couldn't pass it up! We spent a few solid weeks planning everything out. Color schemes, the overall aesthetic that we were aiming for, wardrobe, the works. I'm going to take a few seconds to brag about my girl because she seriously does wonders! We met up for sushi and after the initial catch up we got right down to business. I loved that Kate had taken so much time beforehand to really think about me, what I would like and what best expressed my personality. She had lots of creative ideas and was so enthusiastic about everything, how could I not get excited! She answered any questions that I had and really went above and beyond finding perfect locations and outfits. When we finally picked a date and time I remember being a little anxious. Besides our wedding photographer, Eric is always the one who takes my pictures so I had no idea what really to expect. The instant Kate lifted her camera I felt so at ease. With every snap she would give you words of encouragement and perfect direction. She would get all in there and fix any loose hairs, wardrobe malfunctions, what have you. I think it helped too that both of us were really up for anything - balancing acts, getting our feet dirty, taking little hikes to find the best shots. Okay, enough bragging. But really, she's A++!

Here's a little sneak peek of the first half of our photoshoot in the woods! Make sure to check out more of Kate's work on her site, People are ok too.

  6. These are really wonderful. The planning out of the entire project must've been such a fun thing to do. I used to always love the thinking and planning part of things, especially when we brainstorm all the possibilities (even if they are wild). Just really gets the creative juices flowing. Kudos to you and your friend on this!
