What an awesome fall guys!!! Seriously, its Minnesota and I was out in a t-shirt on Sunday, but I am sure you are tired of everyone posting that on facebook, but hey, its better than political posts right!? In all seriousness, this beautiful fall weather is a photographer (and bride's) dream for fall weddings. We were blessed with great, great weather for all our October weddings. My style revolves around beautiful, outdoor portraits, so awesome weather is a total plus :).
This year has been the busiest one yet over at Amber Langerud Photography. I have been blessed to work with some of the most amazing brides (and grooms and bridal parties too of course!). Seriously, what awesome people!! Not to mention all the awesome seniors, engagement sessions and even a few limited family sessions (all of them had the most amazing, fun and well behaved kids, turns out lots of kids love horses so getting to pet the horses is a great way to end a photo session before heading home).
This has been a year of barn weddings, beautiful details, lots of education/classes and refining my skills every step of the way. Its a wonderful combination.
My senior sessions were awesome and I photographed more senior guys than normal, which was surprisingly pretty awesome! These are not your average senior portraits, this is a full on 90 minute experience complete with exploring multiple locations, outfit changes and incorporating your hobbies and interests.
You may have remembered seeing this wedding on the blog recently. Well I completely fell in love with willow trees at this wedding, I mean look at these two!!! I am nearly 100% certain that after this wedding I need some willow trees so we are seriously considering planting a few on our farm next spring (if we can fit it in between house planning, farming and the start of wedding season), we shall see.
And while this year is not completely over, I am officially into my slow season. From now on out this winter things get a bit slower, no winter weddings on the books this year so just a handful of winter portrait sessions and engagement sessions. Slow season isn't the most fun, because I love being out and taking portraits, but it is good to have a time to step back, regroup, re-evaluate and dig into some more education (always room to grow and refine my skills). I just finished up the KJ posing class (wow what an awesome class) and am currently enrolled in the KJ consistency course, it just started this week and I cannot wait to see what all I can learn!
One thing about slow season is it is full on wedding booking season! If you are looking for a wedding photographer and like my style (and think I might be pretty cool to hang out with for 8 or 10 hours on one of the biggest days of your life), be sure to reach out soon because 2017 dates are filling up quickly!
