Don and Jessi

This photo shoot turned out to be amazing... no wonder when you have a great looking couple. This set has some of my favorite photos thus far, and I'm really pleased with every photo.

Please tell me what you think... I love to here feedback, so if you have any comments on specifics please post it. I'm always curious about what my followers think about the photos I put out.

Thanks and Enjoy.

Brandon-you did a great GREAT job. I'm sure that it's the comfort level Don & Jessi felt with you behind the camera. You captured some awesome shots. My favorites are the ones with the bike because that's so "Don" and the color wall photos. Color/lighting/sharpness are all great. You seem to capture Don looking different in almost every photo. Jessi should be a model (if she's not already!). The are a very metro looking couple.

Great pictures! My favorites of Don and Jessi are where they're posing in the sun. They just seem to BEAM happiness! :-)

Wow, Brandon!!! These are some great pictures of your big brother and your new sister-in-law. They are a beautiful couple. I'm so happy to see Don happy and in love. I know its been a long time coming for the guy. I'm glad he found the love of his life.

I can see a little of your father in the pictures.

Great job. I love the ones with the suitcases. Very creative.

Brandon, I enjoyed seeing all the pictures. I love how you captured the spirit of playfulness they obviously had during the shots. I especially laughed over the one where they're hiding behind the suitcase. Too cute! The ambiance of all the pics is just relaxed, warm and loving. You did a great job. Thanks for sharing!

I love them all and I absolutely love the spot you found in the "woods." The trees lining both sides, just amazing! Of course, you always have beautiful subjects :) which makes every shot gorgeous.Our family photographer has been using the vintage suitcases as well as yard sale vintage chairs, couches etc. They make very interesting props. I make photo prop hats for infants. I tried to send one for Daxton to the Donny.com address, but it was returned. :(
I sure wish we lived closer. I would love for you to take our family photos! Keep up the awesome work ;)

Brandon you capture so much personality in your photos! I love the stories your photos tell. Don and Jessi are obviously very much in love and enjoy each other's company. I liked how you captured Don's love of his motorcycle and their love of travel. Awesome photos! Thank you for sharing.

Brandon, they are lovely photos. Don really looks like your Dad! You have captured the happiness so well.

I love the lighting in the first one. (Beautiful couple!)

The second one is good -- I really like the smiles and the personality showing in the couple. Great capture!

The next one I like is the 6th one, the one on the left though.

The kiss behind the suitcase is cute!

I also love the softness in the 4th from bottom. (It's the other dual shot you have posted.)

It's really fun watching your style develop with your couple shots. It'll be fun to see where you are in a few years!

I love your ability to create such wonderful photos. You are very creative and I just love the suitcase photos. Would never have thought to use them. You are an amazing photographer! Thanks for sharing!

These are all really nice. I especially love the B&W with the trees as a canopy. I love this one! And Don looks just like Jeremy in this one!! (He looks like Donny in the one above it!)

I wish these were numbered . . . ok . . .

The one with Don sitting with his back on the luggage - knee up and Jessi is smiling looking his way . . . what a great picture and the background fits it so well. Nicely done!

I like that Jessi brought a wardrobe and Don . . . well you'll have to tip him off next time!! Changing pants once is not a wardrobe! I'm teasing!!!

I have to say, though, that I'm not crazy about the ones with the sun being too bright. Don's face is too washed out. Maybe if he were facing Jessi and the sun didn't wash out the picture.

And I can see the difference when you have a couple who are both photogenic and able to pull off your direction. What a difference that makes, huh?

Once again, thanks for sharing your talent with us . . .

How's the advertising class going? You're right, we're clueless, but glad you got this class you wanted. Hope it's going well for you.

I absolutely love the pictures of Don & Jessi after much anticipation to see these pictures. What a beautiful, happy couple and very photogenic! My very favorite is the one of Don holding Jessi with the suitcase Up and hiding them. That is a picture that tells a story and is mysterious... which draws you in. Love each and everyone... keep up the great work Brandon. Do we get to see any of their wedding photo's?

Gorgeous photos. They could be a wonderful fashion layout. Jesse is a beauty. Don reminds me alot of a young version or both of your grandfathers.

Janice said...

I love all the photos - but my absolute fav is the first one. I just adore that picture. They look just like they have been together for years - great job!!!

True Blessings said...

Like them. Have you tried softening as well as off balance and misty backgrounds?

Linda said...

Brandon, they are all so nice, I like the old suitcases, you have so many unique ways with photos, are we going to see any wedding photos?

Love the pictures! The one of them on the ground just looking so happy is the best.. and the awesome shoes in front of her add to the photo.. love all of them. Good!! Very good!

wow great job.
First photos I've seen of Jessie, very pretty and graceful she reminds me of Jane Seymour.
Love the first one of them with the motorbike, the one with the suitcases and Don sitting on the floor, holding the suitcase up - very cheeky, either one with the trees as a canopy above them. The two next to one another with Don laughing just makes you smile to see them so happy.
Brilliant thank you, Don & Jessie for sharing.

Valerie said...

que bueno! love the suitcases, so vintage & perfect with that distressed wall...are they yours?

just wondering, what lens do you use for most of your sessions? (and if i EVER get to Utah, i'm so hiring you!)

Brandon, I just love all the photos ... after having curiosity to see the couple ... I agree with one of the comments which said that Jessi reminds us of young Jane Seymour ... cant help remembering your dad fancied her when he was young ... :)

Wish you all the luck with your photographer career ...

Brandon, No wonder you enjoyed this shoot. They are some of your best work from what I have seen on your fb page blog and website. I just love them they are so unique and emotive. You have an amazing talent. Just wish I lived closer and could have a shoot with you. I am sure you would make me feel beautiful. Good luck in all your future endeavours.
