CONFIDENCE | not your mothers prom pictures

These girls had a cold and rainy prom night so I insisted they put their dresses back on the following weekend so we could grab some photos to do these gowns justice! Honestly, hanging out with friends in elegant dresses in a dewy spring garden sounds more fun than actually attending a high school dance.

The thing that made me go “OMG YES these girls need pictures(!!!)” wasn’t necessarily the gowns themselves, but the confidence I sense in dressing 100% your own way during the teenage years many of us spend just wanting to blend in and dress and look exactly like everyone else. Wearing a replica of the 2015 Cinderella ballgown? CONFIDENCE. Making (yes MAKING) your own prom dress out of Nigerian fabric to honor your heritage? CON. FI. DENCE.

I would love to the confidence these girls exude and send it back to my high school self! Probs would have ended up with a prom look reminiscent of Leisl’s gazebo dress, Drew’s butterfly wings, or *anything* from Moulin Rouge.

STACEY+WOODY | old folks deserve pictures too

Old folks deserve pictures too.

It's okay, I can say that. 'Cause that's my dad! He and Stacey celebrated their two year anniversary while I was on a photo work trip out to Utah (I've got another one coming up, FYI!) so Stacey loved the idea of doing some pictures. Their wedding was in the tiny, rural town of Fillmore, Utah, right inside their historic brick home so it only made sense to keep the scenery cohesive by shooting their anniversary pictures in another tiny, rural area with a great wooden barn.
