Kansas City/Louisville Extreme Bridal Session: Kinda hot for being my bro

I thought it would be challenging to orchestrate a photo shoot with my brother and his new wife (the day after their wedding) that would bring out their chemistry. I mean…it’s my brother! I mean really…could I make them look sexy…for two hours??? 

I brought along my trusted assistant…my husband. I thought…why not make it a familial event?
 Isn’t he cute? (and be sure to see all of us in the one on the right)

We started the shoot across from Wendy’s parents’ house outside Louisville (Fisherville, I think…to be exact). This tiny lil meadow-like patch was perfect! And I soon learned that all my concerns were for naught. They BROUGHT the sexiness. And more!

Scrumptious lighting!!

We then found an awesome piece of land, rife with shooting opportunities…rustic buildings and greenery alike. We asked the owner if we could have at it…and he was such a dear and said go for it. So go for it we did. And not long into it…we had a visitor.

I have other images without my feet..but here is a family portrait of sorts. haha

The cat stayed around us the entire shoot. Neil was pleasantly distracted and the furry thing became his buddy. So Neil did what any logical 30-year-old would do. He named the cat. Meet Frank-N-Beans.

Oh right…my brother and Wendy. Here we go… some more loveliness.

Troy & Wendy–you did it. You rocked an extreme bridal session. You were sexy. Cute. In love. ALL IN FRONT OF YOUR SISTER!!! And now, you will most likely see your images splattered through out my site and marketing materials cuz you were THAT darling together. Thank you for hiring me. Some people don’t like shooting family and friends. But I truly do feel honored.

Luv ya both!! xoxo
