Hi...my name is Ellie and I love cinnamon rolls, gummy bears, rain, green grass, fuzzy bunnies and my beeeeeautiful family. But also...I totally love my photography. I love meeting new people and sharing my photography with them. I can be pretty goofy and I'm not afraid to make a fool of myself to get that perfect smile. Take a peek around and don't be afraid to leave some blog love...comments are quite possibly my favorite part of blogging. I love hearing what people think. Oh...and feel free to ask questions too!

Pretty Pretty Couple...

So a couple weeks ago I went out with my brother and his wife Tariel. I have to say...I really lucked out in regards to in-laws. Not only is Tariel gorgeous...but she's the sweetest little thing EVER! Our little girl just loves her auntie Tariel.




And they're the cutest couple ever.


I have to give major props to Aaron for being willing to get up for the shoot. Because of his job, they didn't get to bed until oh...about 3:00 am the evening before and our shoot was bright and early. Poor guy was so tired.
And when he's tired...he's goofy.

At one point I had to threaten to give him more scars to match the ones I gave him when he was 12...

But that still didn't stop him.

You want an example? Here ya go...

Then again...I don't think I can blame this on him being tired. He's just a goofball without being tired.

But despite goofing off, I think it was a successful shoot.


They have a really sweet relationship and I'm so glad we were able to capture these moments...

The last one officially took the favorite spot!!! I LOVE it! All the others are amazing too! Second runner up is Aaron picking his nose :)

I also wanted to say that Aaron's favorite is the black and white one where we are sitting on the log :) Oh by the way we went through them again and i kept saying "oo i really like that one...oh and that one...oh wow and that"

Super duper cute! I'm in their ward, and I like how you were able to get genuine smiles, not posed ones. I also think the blanket was a brilliant touch.

Kudos!

Gorgeous, absolutely beautifully done. She is a tiny little thing isn't she? But they are a very handsome couple. He's cute, she is cute and has a gorgeous smile. Love love love the shots. So tender and endearing. You can see their love. Nice work M!

Can I just say I've been stalking your blog since you put up the sneak peek of these two? I was so excited to see the rest of the shots after that first glimps, and I don't even know this couple! I LOVE the shots...really really love them! Great work!!!

Marilyn said...

Thanks so much guys! They really are a stinkin' gorgeous couple. :) And what you don't see is Aaron pinching her ear or biting her face. Haha! It was really fun.

One word: WOWZA! Okay it's not a word but I totally get away with it here don't I? I absolutely adore your photography of these two--so lovely. I like how crisp and fresh the photos look. I love that they show the beauty of the couple and the surroundings are so peaceful. Get yourself to NC to do my familia photos! LOL. I think America may beat you to it though and THAT is bound to be fun too!
