Andrea and Ryan are our VERY good friends.
They were the 16th wedding we ever photographed. I remember every second of that day… and it was perfection.
Ryan is an incredibly talented graphic designer and often helps the bobbi+mike brand further develop.
Andrea is a teacher, a great cook, has the perfect smile and is 100% genuine 100% of the time.
My tradition of getting a photo with the bride and groom started with their wedding.
When I went to Jesh’s workshop, he was in need of models. The only requirement: to be in love. I immediately thought of these two. So yes… they’ve been photographed by the AMAZING Jesh de Rox.
Andrea is pregnant. AHHH!!! I cried when she told me.
It’s a girl. Name her Bobbi, k? ❗
They both kept insisting, “we only need one!” My response… “I don’t do just one.” They already knew that. 😉 So, I compromised and we got all of the photos done in 15 minutes. Also, Ryan didn’t want to be in any of the photos…. after all, he’s not a fan of getting his photo taken. And my response to that?! TOO BAD SO SAD! I suppose I have a little bit of extra room for fiestyness when we’re photographing our friends. 😀 HA!
I’ve gotta tell you… they made magic happen in that 15 minutes. They’re so in love, so at ease, so PERFECT in front of the camera. WE JUST LOVE THESE TWO! Ryan, seriously… no more of that “I don’t want my picture taken!” crap! You’re SO handsome!
Are you KIDDING me with how flipping BEAUTIFUL she is?! Mikey’s favorite ❓
I LOVE the bump!!!!
I think I want a canvas of this one for our studio.
Wait, no… THIS is my favorite! ❗
Thank you so much for asking us capture this awesome time in your lives… we’re so lucky to know you and to call you our friends.

I looooooove the B&W of them snuggling in the woods. She is gorgeous, too…I hope I look that good when I get pregnant!

You worked it out, as always!!!
WOW … what an amazing 15 minutes!! I simply cannot pick a favorite, they are ALL so fabulous! Andrea & Ryan are sooooo adorable, and baby is going to incredibly sweet. GREAT JOB!!
I’ve been following your blog lately, when I accidentally ran across your website. I love your work! These are fantastic!!
How did you do this in 15 mintues? I have a maternity client soon and I hope I get these in an hour! You’re so inspiring! What a great way to start the week.
Okay…I know how much YOU love these two, but now I do too. 🙂
Andrea you are GORGEOUS! Oh love…it’s grand.
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!
What an amazing shoot!!!
I can only hope that I’ll look half as good when I’m pregnant!
AWESOME job guys!
B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L guys!!! And because I always find myself comparing people to famous people, your friend looks a lot like the gorgeous Rosario Dawson!!
Is there any type of shoot you can’t nail? You’d pry find a way to make dog doo-doo look good!
Well Jesh is alright I guess .. but wow..they got you guys to do their maternity .. LUCKY them.. these rock.. not at all cheesy and .. 15mins.. wow. welllll done!!!!!
Sigh. These are so lovely and almost, almost make me want to be pregnant again. Yes, I too would like some links because I can’t find their wedding in the archives.
Those are some amazing pictures! Andrea and Ryan are the best 🙂 I miss them.
Aww… so sweet! I love this session, and they are a beautiful couple!
Bobbi, I stalk your website a lot, sorry for never leaving a comment before now. I just want to know, how in the world are you still finding all this LOVELY fall color? I’m just a state over and no matter where I’ve gone, it’s brown and UGLY outside. I’m determined to keep shooting, so I’m trying my hand at some urban shots next week. I give up on mother nature atm!
Beautiful baby bump!!! What a way to rock out 15 mins. 🙂 The one of her laying in the leaves is every pregnant woman’s dream shot!
Ummm … so cute together! And love her hair! She’s gorgeous! Congrats!
Where were you when I was pregnant? Oh yeah… I didn’t look like that when I was pregnant. So…I guess I’ll just have to gawk and do my ohhs and ahh. These are just BEAUTIFUL, they are so blessed to have you in their lives and photograph all their most important moments.
I dont think you can pick a favorite when every stinking image is gorgeous!!!!
Huh. You wrote your paragraphs at the top of the post this time. Are you moving that direction? I like it, as it sets up the session before you reveal the artwork. When it’s at the bottom I’m less prone to “stick around” and read it… My own personal character flaw… 🙂
I love this shoot! Amazing job!
I love these photos. Photos 2,4,6, and 8 are my fav’s. Definitely canvas material.
i agree with jess … that shot of her laying in the leaves is perfection! she’s stunning and absolutely glowing as a pregnant girl should be 🙂
