I’m obsessed with Kate’s eyes. Oh, and her hair. And her perfect skin. Okay, I’m sounding like a creeper… I’ll shush now.
Chris, I love how much you love her.
Kate was a bridesmaid in Niki’s and Justin’s New Year’s Eve wedding. Needless to say, the last time we hung out… the weather was QUITE different than what you see here! BTW, Niki just had her baby… on the 4th of July! Welcome Charlie!!!! 😀 As you can see, Niki and Justin only like for big life events to happen on major holidays. 😉
SUCH luscious lips!!!!
OHHH HELLOOOOOO GORGEOUS MORNING LIGHT!!!!!! My view…
Mikey’s view. And his favorite. ❓
While California photographers shoot in fields of lavender, gorgeous yellow flowers, vineyards at every corner and awesome rolling hills… we here in the midwest work it OUT with the WEEEEEDS!!!! You don’t scare me CA photogs!
You guys know I can’t resist me a parked bicycle!
A client recently put a photo from their engagement session on Facebook… it was a photo like this that didn’t show their faces. The clients family member saw it and said something along the lines of… “uhm… why can’t I see your faces… the engagement session is supposed to be about the two of you, right?!” WELLLLL…. yes… and we take plenty of those. HOWEVER, faces aren’t the only thing that represent who we are. When I see this image that focuses entirely on their body language… I know how much they adore each other. In my OH SO humble opinion… this shot is MONEY!!!!!! 😀 If this were of me and Mike, I’d hang this as a canvas above my bed. Just sayin’. Okay, jumping off my soap box now 😉
I can’t get over how flipping gorgeous you are Kate. My favorite, HANDS down! ❗ CHECK AND MARK!
THENNNN we got to meet Marley 🙂 It is no secret that I am not a dog person… in the least. HOWEVER, this puppy is CUUUUTE! He has SO much personality and curiousity. I liked Marley, a lot! (that’s sayin’ something!) He’s a mix of a pug and a ? <- I can’t remember the second half… UPDATE: just got a message from Kate. He’s a puggle, a pug and beagle mix. 🙂
The faces Marley would make kept reminding me of the hyenas from “The Lion King”. Do you see it, too? Or am I crazy? I promise I don’t mean that as an insult… promise! Those hyenas, though evil… were cute! (Marley is the furthest thing from evil…!)

Isn’t morning light amazing!? Loved the red bicycle…. And the weeds! 😉
Gorgeous… CHECK! MOney shots… CHECK! Stinkin RAD Session… um CHECK!
*slow clap* these are seriously incredible. honestly can’t say more than that. words don’t do them justice.
….gasp… what a beautiful couple. her eyes… gorgeous.. their love… amazing!
…and I love what you do, Bobbi (and Mike), through the lens of your camera – how you represent the whole person/relationship. That’s what makes you guys so unique, and it’s why folks flock to you to capture their lives. Besides, what on Earth would we do with 50 shots of our faces? I mean, seriously. Thanks for sharing your talent!
He does look like one of the hyena’s! Great job as always!
TOTALLY looks like Ed! (sans the whole crossed eye thing)
beautiful beautiful images! I love the non face ones too.
oh oh oh oh. words. can’t. describe. how. i’m. feeling.
LOVE this. !!!
Amazing work guys and you are right……her eyes are AMAZING!
Your favorite is my favorite!! And I totally agree, her eyes and hair are amaaaazing!
My dogs often remind me of hyenas and I have a lab and a mutt. I think dogs and hyenas must be similar creatures. Love the session! Kate is absolutely beautiful. 🙂 I’m a bit biased though, I’m also engaged to a red head 🙂
Are you kidding me?!? These are so far above amazing. I love them all! Gorgeous couple and amazing pictures. CANNOT wait to see wedding pics!
Once again, y’all rocked it. The weeds, the hyena pup, the beautiful couple. ALL AMAZING!
beautiful. just beautiful. that is all 😉
i woke up this morning, grabbed my phone and checked your blog. then i screamed and woke chris up. we LOVE them. and marley thinks he’s a star now!!!
GORGEOUS! You guys are by far the best “posers” in the biz… and by posers I mean how you position people for photographs 😉 Do you two just naturally have an eye for that or did you take a course, or read a book about it…? I have a lot of trouble posing adults in a way that looks natural and warm. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Incredibly inspiring Thank you.
These are beautiful!! The light and Kate’s gorgeous hair – WOW! Love the bicycle and the weeds of course ;). I see the Disney hyena in the pug – most definitely. I just expect him to say “Mufasa…”
I love everything about this session!! The morning sun . . . even the WEEDS!!! oh you know I love those midwestern fields 🙂 🙂 I’m also diggin’ the b&w on this session, feels romantic like film!
Kate looks so much like my sister I could cry!! I agree completely about being obsessed with that skin and her eyes and her hair…all so gorgeous and a treat to photograph. Now for the weeds, Amen sister. Amen.
Such gorgeous shots!! Love them all!
Beautiful, beautiful session!! She is just gorgeous (has your exact same coloring) and they are super cute together. You worked that morning light just brilliantly.
One of my favorite sessions! I completely agree about the photo without faces and body language- those make my heart sing 🙂
NAILED IT, my friends…nailed it. B-E-A-Uuutiful session. 🙂 and the comment about the weeds cracked me up. Soooooo true!
You do such a good job with backlighting. The light always looks soft and beautiful. These are so good!
Love love love!!! Morning light how wonderful!! What are those orange/yellow things in your hair?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fence one!!
I also love weeds. We have alot of those to work with in NY as well!
i totally agree with you about the sans faces shots. You. are. truth. 🙂
why do you have to live so far away? I want you to photograph MEEEE someday 🙂 Also I totally agree about body language. You are completely right 🙂
Nice stuff! Love the eyes too,fab stuff
The God of money shots must have been on your shoulder this day! The bike matched her top, the yellow in Chris’s watch and shirt not only matched the curb but was in symmetry. And it helps to be an adorable gal shooting an A-DOR-able couple!!! 🙂
Too many favorites! What a beautiful couple! I agree about the face shots 😉 Your body language and personality is what makes a great picture, not just your face. Beautiful pics 🙂
DOGGIE!!!! These pictures are divine!
I totally agree that you guys are THE BEST at posing.. I really don’t see how you have such an amazing variety of poses EVERY SINGLE STINKING TIME! Ya’ll are seriously one of my top favorite photographers to stalk 🙂
I also feel ya on the family members comments… they say (why can’t you see her face? on a shot with sunflare) and (why is that person out of focus?) It’s pretty frustrating when they just don’t get it… how do you make them see? Do you have any advice?! Maybe you should do a workshop?! I would totally be there!
I LOVE your art!! So full of beauty…it’s like a feast for the eyes 🙂 I’m a-thinkin’ that you’re going to be one of the blogs I stalk…er…follow. 🙂
gorgeous photos! love that first one and the bicycle shot. 🙂
LOVE the black and white by the fence…wish you could take my engagement pix in Denver 🙂
Gorgeous photos and I couldn’t stop staring at Kate’s face in the first photo.
And at least you have weeds because I have sage brush all around me which would make for some kick ass photos with the cliffs and rolling hills in the background except the brush is full of rattlesnakes and unless I had body armor on you couldn’t get me out there. So just know that I’m jealous of your lovely weeds.
Another amazing session!
I also love the red bicycle.
Here’s just an FYI to my favorite Indianapolis photographers: My favorite L.A. filmakers will be screening their film JEFFIE WAS HERE at the Indianapolis Art Museum tomorrow and also next Wednesday. It’s a great story, quirkie and oh so enjoyable, AND one of the characters is a photographer! Tell them Karyn sent you!
I think I might be getting old because I feel like these two look sooo young! They are adorable. Love the laying in the weeds shot.
