Carleigh & Corey were simply wonderful to work with from the very first meeting. I absolutely loved getting to know this sweet couple and their wonderful families. Carleigh’s mom, Melanie put so much thought and effort into every detail of her sweet daughters wedding and it certainly came through on the wedding day. I continue to be blown away by the kind and wonderful clients that come into my life.

The celebration could not have gone smoother with this all star team of vendors. I recently had a bride tell me she wanted a “laid back and stress free wedding.” A WHOLE lot can go wrong on a wedding day, but when you have experienced, reliable, and talented vendors I can almost guarantee your day will be stress free…and if anything does go wrong, you won’t know about it. It’s all the vendors job to make sure you and your guests are having the time of your lives and that WILL show in your photos. Hat’s off to this talented group for making this wedding spectacular. Big thanks to my talented second shooter Dustin Alton Strupp for continually busting out amazing photos at all our weddings.

There is something about shooting in the water that fills my soul with excitement. The underwater world is magical. I love the way people look in this weightless environment…especially a gorgeous pregnant momma and her husband. There is something dreamlike in these beautiful moments in the water, a place where I have always felt so comfortable.

Laura & Gord are no strangers to the water, and their new addition certainly won’t be either! Laura grew up at Lakeside Swim Club, Gord is an experienced swimmer from Canada and now an assistant swim coach at Bellarmine. This isn’t the first time I have gotten the opportunity to photograph this athletic and beautiful couple. We had their underwater engagement session a few years ago so they are skilled at underwater modeling!

Photographing underwater can open up a new world of possibilities for a photographer and a whole lot of new challenges as well. Your housing for your camera, lighting, posing, composition, and post-production are a whole new set of skills from regular photography. But, I absolutely love the images that are created being submerged underwater. There is nothing like it!

I can’t thank Laura and Gord enough for being such awesome underwater models and taking my direction well to create these images. Your baby is going to be one hell of a swimmer! Big thanks to Lakeside Swim Club for letting me use the facilities…it is the coolest pool I have ever known. Lastly I want to thank my awesome underwater assistant, William Kolb (he is featured as the last image in the blog post!) Without his enthusiasm, advice, and swimming abilities I could not have pulled this off! I also owe him credit to the image of Laura laying horizontally near the bottom of the water. William has nearly zero body fat and was able to hold the camera at the bottom to get photos while I kept floating the top! Haha!

Hope you all love the images and if you have any questions about underwater photos please don’t hesitate to reach out! Congrats to Laura & Gord!
