This year I have an awesome intern! I wanted to make sure that I provided some opportunities for us to work together at a photoshoot. It would allow her to ask questions and have practice with posing and prompting clients. When I was planning this particular photoshoot, I decided to ask my current clients instead of doing a model call. This allowed me to love up on this couple more and I’m so glad that I asked Kilee and Tyler to model! We chose two locations close to Rexburg; Eagle Park Campground and St Anthony Sand Dunes.
Eagle Park Campground Bridals
Kilee and I chose two locations that were fairly close together, but offered a wide variety of backdrops and scenery. We decided to go to Eagle Park first. The park offers camping, a nice open area for kids and dogs to run, a little river that stays pretty shallow, and lots of greenery! The mosquitoes can get bad at Eagle Park in the summertime, but those bites are worth the photos we captured! I loved how the light was streaming through the trees at the beginning of their session, giving us a soft glow.
St. Anthony Sand Dune Bridals
The second place we went to was the St. Anthony Sand Dunes. If you plan a photoshoot here, you want to venture out in the early morning or late evening. The sand gets so hot during the day that it will burn your feet!
Being Creative for Epic Portraits
Something that I loved about Kilee and Tyler was that they were okay with whatever ideas we had. I always try to make sure that our couples are comfortable with the poses that we envision, especially if their outfits have the potential of getting dirty. Outdoor locations will make clothes dirty. So, I love it when the couples are less concerned about their clothes and instead want epic pictures! I’m so thrilled with how their sand dune bridals turned out. It’s all because they tried out a few new poses in the sand.
