Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! The wifey and I have returned from a legendary trip to St. Lucia and I will post images from our trip very soon, but today I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween! Have a safe and absolutely awesome time tonight!

Our very own Elvis wanted to dress up as a delicious hot dog for Halloween and we were happy to oblige him!

Headed to St. Lucia!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Tomorrow, the wifey and I are headed off to St. Lucia to photograph a 10 year vow renewal! Isn't that awesome? The wife will be my assistant for the shoot and then we'll get to play on the beach for a few days! I will not have access to internet/phone so I will respond to everyone after October 30th. Have a wonderful week!

Many blessings,

Here is an image from my most recent wedding in Fairbury, NE! You can view more of the wedding here - Tarilyn & Jason | Wedding | Fairbury, NE | Chris

52WoA: Week 10 - Travel

As a photographer, sometime you need to work on things outside of your normal purview and this project is going to help us (and you) challenge, grow and creatively develop your photography as a whole. Weekly for the next year, we will be sharing our images with you here!

For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE join us! The more the merrier! You definitely do not need to be a professional photographer, this is something you can easily do with your point and shoot, cell phone, ipad, etc. You can comment with a link to your image here on our blog or on our La Brisa fan page or you can tag La Brisa Photography in your image on your own FB page or use the hashtag #52WoA on twitter that way we can share your efforts with everyone else! If you are interested in joining our La Brisa Aspiring Photographer Workshop group on FB, please request to join as we will also be sharing our images there too.

Next Wednesday, October 17th, Week 11: “ARCHITECTURE” will be due. The image must be created between today and October 17thth. Good luck!

Here are our Week 10 – “TRAVEL” images!

"travel--- I've always wanted to travel more than I have. One of many reason I love La Brisa is the opportunity to travel as much as we do! That being said- a good old fashioned road trip is usually my favorite way to go... even if you don't get as far..."

Karli & Brett | Wedding | Oberlin, KS | b & autumn

Happy THURSDAY everyone! Wedding Week continues on the La Brisa blog and I am pumped to feature Karli & Brett’s gorgeous wedding photographed by b and autumn! You may remember this gorgeous couple from their amazing Attraction Session that b and autumn photographed ~ Karli & Brett!

Here is how Karli described her wedding day via her review on – “Words cannot describe how fantastic, amazing, wonderful, and how memorable my experience with La Brisa was! If you are on the fence or looking for a photographer these are your people without a doubt! B and Autumn did our engagement pictures and our wedding photos. They were so professional but yet easy and fun to work with. They have a very perfected system that helps them run smoothly and on time. All our family and friends enjoyed working with them and said how fun they actually made pictures on the stressful wedding day. On your wedding day their are many stressors but with B and Autumn as my photographers, photos were not something I worried about. They got pictures of everything I asked for and then some. Everyone has raved about our pictures. The thing I love about La Brisa is that they are not your typical photographers that take the same pictures at each wedding. All members of La Brisa are incredibly talented and do things to make your wedding photos unique to you... Not the cookie cutter wedding pictures that everyone has! Another thing I love about La Brisa is how quickly they work to get your pictures back to you. Less than 5 days after my wedding teasers were posted for us to check out! This was such a blessing to me as the day seemed like a blur and I was then able to see how much I really enjoyed that day. I would recommend La Brisa to anyone for all your photography needs!”
