I’ve actually known Jess for years, we grew up living across the road from one another, and I went to school with her older brother. So, when she asked if I would take some photos of her and her boyfriend Blake, of course I was very excited!
Jess and Blake have been together for six years and started dating in high school! HOW FREAKING SWEET! Jess had shyly asked me whether they could bring their puppy Archie for the photoshoot…UMMM YES!!! I LOVE DOGS!! And how cute is he! He knows it too because every time the camera was on him, he would pose!
A couple weeks earlier I had been driving up to 1770/Agnes Waters and spotted this gorgeous location with mountains in the background. I asked Jess if she would be willing to do a little road trip for the perfect location, she trusted in me and MY GOD did it pay off! I am obsessed with this spot! Unfortunately, on the day it was a drizzly and raining but Jess, Blake and Archie all braved the weather like absolute champions and these images turned out so beautifully.
Fun fact: On the way, driving to our location I was pulled over for a Roadside Random Alcohol Breath Test with Jess, Blake and Archie all in the car, can’t say I’ve ever had that happen to me while driving to a shoot before!
This photoshoot was a collaboration with the HIGHLY talented Tahlia from Tahlia Grace Glamour. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your photoshoot, your wedding or any event really, I couldn’t recommend her enough! Jess’ makeup was FLAWLESS and stayed put for our whole shoot, even in the rain!
