Louann & Corey: Wedding

When we first caught wind that Louann and Corey were going to get married Adam and I went into planning overdrive. This weekend was going to be epic… for us. Louann isn’t just anyone, she is Adam’s cousin. The wedding would be in Kansas which has been home for Adam’s family for years. So, there wouldn’t just be a wedding, there would also be a family reunion of sorts.

Of course for us Houseman’s it meant a family road trip was in order. We hopped in the car and headed to Kansas over Halloween weekend. This trip held a lot of firsts for us. Zoe’s first wedding, Zoe meeting many of her cousins,  and Zoe finally meeting Grandma Lou and Grandpa in “real” life not just over skype. And, of course there is Adam shooting a wedding (as a professional) with the film camera he first learned on 16 years ago. Grandpa just had to pull it out of the cabinet and give it to us the day before the wedding. Thanks Grandpa!

The weekend was always supposed to be about Louann and Corey, but it ended up being a celebration of family for us. Weddings always bring family together and we know that better than anyone. But, for us to be able to document the weekend, and do it as only we know how to do, meant more to us than anything.

Here’s to Grandpa Cox. Grandma Lou wearing blue at EVERY wedding. The late nights.  Crazy uncle Timber.  Scaring people in the hall of a sleeping hotel. Cousins that will love each other forever. Laughter and then some more laughter. More weddings (Eric and Tish hint hint). More grand kids. More family reunions, and of course Louann and Corey. We wish you and Louann all the luck in the world for a beautiful life together.

Cheers,

The Houseman’s

Mike & Jeanette: Wedding

Someone recently asked me if we love what we do. Normally I would think nothing of it, but that day it stopped me in my tracks. I stood there for a minute speechless and then said “yes, of course we do”. I’m not sure why that particular day it stopped me in my tracks, but it got me thinking about our photography.

At the beginning of the year we vowed to take more risks. Think outside of the box. Push ourselves harder than we had in the past simply because we didn’t want to become uninspired. Our amazing couples were excited about the idea. They wanted us to see differently then we had before. They wanted us to bring out the best everyday.

Right now Adam and I are excited with how things are going. We’re excited about where our photography is, and the images we are making. We’re getting inspired and looking at every situation and wondering “how can we photograph this differently”. We are storytellers and we thrive on being at a wedding from the beginning to end. Telling the story of the day unfolding.

That’s just what Adam did at Mike and Jeanette’s wedding. He told the story of how the day unfolded in a way that only Adam could. With our good friend Otto Schulze and his amazing assistant AD shooting along side Adam, he saw differently and took incredible risks. So, thank you to Otto and AD for helping us out on this wedding. We really appreciate having you in our lives.

And because post are way cooler with slideshows make sure you check out MIKE & JEANETTE’S SLIDESHOW!

Jen & Tally: Lifestyle Session

You have to wonder… who runs this household? If its anything like our house the cute little girl holding the umbrella thinks she does. We had to share this one frame from Jen and Tally’s recent family portrait session.

I love the look her little brother’s face. Do you think he’s wondering why her big sister won’t let anyone else under the umbrella?
