Ok for those that knows me Tyler and I loves to take pictures, mostly I haha but Tyler loves making me happy and he is always a good sport about it…
When I went to Kansas about two summers ago I met a photographer and her name was Katie Carlson She was barely starting her photography career when I met her and since our first photo shoot I notice she had a lot of talent… We got together and we took some pictures in a beautiful State of Kansas… No joke those are the pictures I still have hang it in my house.
So this winter Katie posted she was coming to Utah and I couldn’t believe it, one of my dreams was to have awesome pictures of me and Tyler in the beautiful land of Utah specially during the winter because I love snow, So I mediately message Katie and we set up everything so when she came to Utah she could took our pictures… Like always she did an amazing job and I can’t wait to print some of the pictures to hang it in my house.
So I’m going to share one of my favorite pictures on this blog post and also my thoughts about finding your perfect Photographer, as part of my job as a content creator and an influencer and also a professional photographer I have taken so many pictures with so many different photographers and I definitely have my favorite ones. So I’m going to list what are the things that makes them my favorite photographers and also my top three photographers I’ve ever taken pictures with.
First thing is I believe a good photographer should be as honest and as exciting about Photographer and also humble to take pictures, and also when you find your perfect Photographer you will just love the pictures and you’re going to love more than just one picture, You would love so many that it’s going to be so hard to print just one that’s one thing for you to keep in mind when you want to find your perfect photographer. There’s also of course some pictures they are not gonna like and that’s OK but what matters is you’re going to love most of the pictures and that’s what matters the most.
Another thing for me is how long does the photographer takes to deliver your pictures, I believe all Photographer should try to send the pictures as fast as they can but also not so fast that they will be rushing through editing and forgetting about some cute things to edit in your pictures, So too long I believe it’s just a little bit of laziness and too little is also a little bit of unprofessional work.
Now I’m going explain why I love this picture so much, me and Taylor even though we work with social media and pictures we are not professional models, I’ve worked as a model before in Brazil when I was younger but nothing crazy that makes me a professional model, Tyler is a Hunter in outdoor guy and not as social media guru but he does Super good in our photo shoots. I love this picture so much because Katie always give us the idea of the picture and then she let us do whatever we want, she also listen to us if we have an idea and she is always totally down to do it. That gives me and Tyler confidence throughout our shoot. Also she’s honest if we’re trying something that’s not working she will let us know that’s not working and we can try to adjust and do something different. On this pictures I just posted up here it’s me and Tyler and that was his idea to throw the snow while we kissed I wanted some snow pictures like throwing snow at each other but the snow was so powder that day that we couldn’t make snowballs to you have a snowball fight Picture that I wanted so Tyler had the idea to throw in the air and then we kissed And those turn out super cute.
OK also I want to talk about the perfect outfit… yes if you look at this pictures the picture looks amazing and the reason is the quality is perfect and we have a super cute outfit I also have some cute make up on. Now you can ask me oh that outfits probably super expensive right? And my answer would be nope that’s my normal clothes that I have collected Throughout the years and some of them are even from thrift boutiques. I spent about one hour trying to plan our outfits, I am ready had some ideas on Pinterest but took me about an hour to put out some different outfits for me to choose from. When choosing an outfit you have to know where are you going, I knew we were going to go to the mountains and there was going to be a lot of snow and Lots of pine trees so I knew I wanted something more nature and warm looking to give a contrast to that cold winter day. I took three different outfits for this photo shoot and I’m going to show you all of them right now.
This was my first outfit I believe in every photo shoot you do by yourself or with someone you love you should always wear a dress if you are a girl, a dress makes you look very put together and very beautiful. I normally start all my shoots with the dress, so I can have some cute natural and more smiling pictures with that outfit. In this case I had this thrift did green velvet dress that I paired with black boots a big bold necklace and some black hat, Tyler had black jeans black boots and a nicer look but modern gray sweater with black shoulders. I love this outfit because makes us look very well put together in this picture but also just cute and romantic.
The second outfit was another not as comfy but cute jeans outfit
This outfit was super cute and well put together as well but I try to keep it very winter and warm with a few details. I’m wearing a high neck white long sleeve shirt, with a very cool awesome bold brown jacket, with fine knee open jeans and a Warm fuzzy boots, Tyler was wearing the same black jeans in the same shoes but I made him wear a nice warm coat. I love this outfit because it also make us look really cute and well put together but also stylish. I also had a lot of rings because I think it brings cute details to the pictures especially when it’s close up.
The third outfit was my favorite because it’s more comfortable and I knew I would be able to go on the floor run around and do things that I like doing in pictures, I always leave my favorite outfit for the end of the session because we are already used to taking the pictures and were more open for more fun stuff.
OK so it’s winter in Utah and there is a lot of snow so I wanted to Take pictures with a blanket just because it’s cute and I know you guys can agree ha ha Ha so we took a few pictures literally just a few of us under the blanket and then we just wanted to play around, that’s pretty much all me and Tyler dress is more often if we are going to explore and go to the mountains , So in this outfit I have a vintage Jeans jacket that I’m pretty sure I bought that in a thrift boutique, I have some black jeans with holes on the knees also some high socks with my dark green boots I wanted to wear a beanie and also some gloves in some of the pictures because it’s winter and that’s what I’m going to wire frame in the winter here in Utah, at the end we also took some pictures sitting in the blanket so we could get some sitting pictures that was fun, Tyler still had He’s black jeans with his favorite brown boots and just a cute sweater, that sweater was also from the thrift store.
So I love all the outfits because it also describe how we are, sometimes we like to dress up super nice and sometimes we like to dress up pretty normal and then sometimes we just like to dress up just like ourselves very comfy and cute.
And this is a fun picture me and Taylor like to do with Kati at the end of her sessions I need to find the other picture that we took like this in Kansas so maybe I’m going to write another post about our pictures in Kansas.
