Ever since the crazy fires that broke out a few months ago near our home we have been eyeing the burned areas and thought they might make for a sweet backdrop for a photo shoot. Also, my fabulous sister Nicole DeAnne has been nudging me to schedule a fun little session with her and her husband, so we thought we would put those burned areas to use before the green started to grow back.

Many of our followers may recognize Nicole DeAnne because we feature her quite frequently on the blog. She has worked with about 75% of our brides making them look uber fabulous with her hair and make-up magic-ness! Let me just say how fun it is to have my sweet sister (and best friend) working with me in the wedding industry, we both have such a passion for weddings and enjoy every moment of making sure that everyone of our clients look the best that they can!

We wanted this shoot with Nicole DeAnne and Jeffrey to have a high fashion feel so we included a wide array of colors to contrast with the black burned background, we thought it turned out great!

The first image and its my favorite!!!












This one is Nicole's favorite shot of the day!!! I think Jeffrey looks HOT!

What is this? What is going on here? Who are these people? I want some answers! I'll tell you one thing...Jeff and Nicole are the best things that area has seen in a long time. My fav is the one at the top, the next one down and then the next one again and then the one following that and then the one just below that one and then then next 3 or 4 under that one and all the rest down to the very last no particular order. Kindred, you are a sexy MO-FO! Nicole, your skin is effing flawless! Amelia and Justin...I like you guys.
