Dreamy, creamy tones and boho vibes with laughs and beer. Need I say more? I was loving every minute.

I flew into Omaha, Nebraska, from Boise and the humidity was a wall that met me coming out the terminal doors. On to Blair, to capture these two cuties.

Speaking of details...LOOK. And yes, there were dinosaurs on his wedding ring.

Alexa chose their first look location to be one that was special to them. You see, she shared with me that they had many happy and not so happy memories there. Either way, she knew that it was going to be the spot they first saw each other before sharing their vows. The frogs croaked in the background and I thanked The good Lord for an overcast sky that kept away the summer heat and added to the amazing lighting for this spot. Yes, it was a day before Fall officially began, but C'mon. Nebraska. Am I right?

Did I mention there was a boat? Yeah, there was. Alexa and I both knew what we should do with it. EVERYONE was telling us no. There could be holes. What if they tipped over? There weren't any oars. I checked with her again to confirm and she was ALL about it. I was so proud and pumped that she trusted me with this moment of them reading their vows.

The ceremony venue was decorated with boho rugs and tree stumps with baby's breath in tin holders to line the aisles. A watered tree to celebrate their coming together as one. Just perfect.

Inside was dinner and dance. Tables were adorned with wood pieces, candles and greenery. Dinosaurs and travel, Meade and Alexa's favorite things, were incorporated into their cake, ring and entryway table.

Styled Bridal Shoot | Roca Berry Farm Summer Bridal Session | Omaha Nebraska Photographer https://www.mistyraephotography.com/blog/2018/6/styled-bridal-shoot-roca-berry-farm-summer-bridal-session-omaha-nebraska-photographer The morning this styled shoot was going down, it was dreary and dark and rainy. Bleh. I was super thankful for the cool temps and decided to go for it anyway. I am so glad I did. The dresses from Adorned Bridal made me want to get married again. The super fun-loving models were thankfully all-in and up for a little bossing around. Oh, the venue? Roca Berry Farm south of Lincoln. INSANE gorgeous. Plus, there was champagne, yummy cake from Goldenrod Pastries, perfect flowers from Abloom and glitter. I'm not sure I've ever met anyone who didn't like at least one of those things.

Event planner, Cassandra Mae, was pretty meticulous to the details that truly made the decor and the moments.  The execution was amazing.

So, basically, it was an incredible day.

The Le Family | Field Lake Summer Family Session | Omaha Nebraska Photographer https://www.mistyraephotography.com/blog/2018/6/the-le-family-field-lake-summer-family-session-omaha-nebraska-photographer This family session was pretty dang great. The rain was looming overhead and we thought we could get a downpour but decided to brave it anyway. I'm SO glad that we did. It was nice and cool with a good breeze which kept the bugs away. The clouds? Yeah, they were incredible. Evening shoots like this in Nebraska are what I loooove. Also, the kiddos were hilarious. 

When it's a family session with kiddos, I always bring noise makers that get those shy little ones to give a good look my way. Any toy that makes fart noises is sure to please. The only problem is one little did NOT want to put it down! Hah! So, I went with it and got some great smiles. So fun!

Quintin & Kayleen | Muddy Lumberyard Spring Engagement Session | Omaha Nebraska Photographer https://www.mistyraephotography.com/blog/2018/4/quintin-kayleen-muddy-lumberyard-rustic-engagement-session-omaha-nebraska-photographer This session was so unique and spoke to me on so many levels. It was pretty cold for a spring evening but Quintin and Kayleen were troopers. 

Recent rains made a lot of gorgeous mud puddles and you better believe I took full advantage. Kayleen asked if she could be barefoot and I was brimming with joy. See, I love to be barefoot. I know a lot of clients don't feel fully comfortable going barefoot in front of the camera so I was happy to know she felt relaxed with me enough to be herself. That made for some truly moving images. I felt as though her bare feet added to the mood and rawness of the images and I loved  it.

I was really grateful that I brought along my rain boots because by the time we were done, I had muck up past my ankles. We had to carefully maneuver through the location so we weren't covered in mud by the next spot. This meant piggy-backing at times. Speaking of piggies, there was a field full of cows that decided to be our audience with incessant mooing. Those noises took me back to my days growing up and made me smile. 

The tones of this session grabbed me so much and I just can't wait until the wedding.
