‘Pros & Con’s of a “First Look”

Despite the old adage that its bad luck for the wedding couple to see each other prior to their wedding ceremony, the ‘first look’ is becoming increasingly more popular.  In case you aren’t familiar with the term, a first look is an exclusive moment between the wedding couple wherein they see each other for the first time before the ceremony.    While we here at Ahnvee Photography strongly suggest having a first look for the various advantages detailed below, we’ve also taken the time to consider the flip side of that coin and provide you with the reasons that couples decide against this option. A surprising number of couples who decide against a first look cite the medieval fear of bringing bad luck to their union.  However, in our experience, we’ve found that majority of these couples cannot accurately describe the origin of this superstition, nor why it came to be.  No worries, because we have done our research in hopes of dispelling this ancient myth! The notion that its bad luck for the bride and groom to see one another prior to the wedding ceremony was spawned back in the days of arranged marriages.  Back then, the bride and […]

Maternity : Kelsey & Chase

A New Bundle of Joy It’s pretty hard not to have a big, cheesy smile when looking at the pictures from Kelsey and Chase’s family lifestyle maternity session. They are expecting a new baby boy, Cian. When Kelsey contacted me to shoot this special moment, I was thrilled. She and Chase are good friends of mine,but let’s face it–who wouldn’t want to take pictures of such a beautiful family? My favorite hidden gem in Central Louisiana was the perfect location. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing this beautiful family’s eagerness for their newest bundle of joy. Parker perfectly reflected his excitement for a new baby brother. Parker’s precious facial expressions and big blue eyes were to die for. He is just so cute! Cian is already loved beyond belief. I can’t wait to meet him!

Wedding : Elise & Jared

Intimate Backyard Wedding Elise and Jared’s non-traditional, intimate backyard wedding was every candid-style wedding photographer’s dream wedding. A small gathering of family and friends witnessed the couple exchange their vows. These were original vows written by the bride and groom themselves, which left the entire crowd with tear-struck faces, including myself. From ugly-crying behind the camera to crying while editing, I couldn’t hold back the emotions brought on by witnessing such a genuine connection between two individuals. The couple’s romantic color selection of blushes and pastels emphasized the intimacy of the ceremony. The light color scheme contrasted beautifully against the dark greenery of their backyard. The elegant-meets-rustic details of her blush-toned lace dress, bright hair, and flower crown perfectly reflected the bride’s unique attention to detail. The photojournalistic, candid shots tell the story of the sentimental, heartfelt moments shared between Elise, Jared, and their friends and family.   To see more of my wedding photography, click here: http://ahnveephotography.com/wedding/

What’s in my bag? Photography Gear & More!

Have you ever wondered what combination of photography gear, beauty products, food/beverages, and music make up the perfect recipe for our unique photos? Today’s your lucky day, my friend! Let’s start with the bag(s): I’ve finally settled in my relationship with bags, and for good reason. These bags are not only stylish, they’re functional, comfortable, and unique. I started with the crossbody, but as my lens collection grew, I found the Isaac Mizrahi camera backpack that fits my DSLR camera, film camera, and five lenses comfortably. It also includes a back compartment that fits a 15″ laptop! Now I use the crossbody for my lighting gear, batteries, accessories, and to hold my personal belongings. Isaac Mizrahi Kathryn Full Size Coated Canvas Camera and Tech Backpack         Crossbody Camera Bag from Shutter Totes           Over the years I’ve accumulated so many items necessary for capturing the perfect images that bags just weren’t cutting it. Last summer I decided to take an ice chest to keep us cool and hydrated on a shoot. The ice chest had wheels, so we stacked my bags on it as we ventured from location to location. Then it hit me: WE […]
