For you regular blog readers out there (I’m talking to you, Elise from Moorhead), the titles of our posts have really just evolved into the first names of our clients. I’ve tried the alliteration thing, but that get’s old – you know, ‘Monday Megan’ really seems like we’re just phoning it in – so we’re going to stick with the uncomplicated, and elegant ‘Megan’ – and speaking of Megan, that’s just the person we had the great pleasure of working with this gorgeous evening!

Our beautiful day working with great clients continued with Megan – we thank her and her lovely assistant (Mom), as they were totally great to work with! Again, I will quit with all of my nonsensical jabbering and get on with some samples of the work – Enjoy!

We got off to an early start in the land of Otis & James today (when I write stuff like that, it seems like I’m going to segue into talk of wizzards/gnomes/elves and what not – but I won’t.) We rose early morning style to partake in the senior portraitizing of our friend from Mandan, Kayla.

She was great, rip-roaring and ready to go! We had a beautiful day to work with, and had a great client to work with as well – I will now quit all of this rambling nonsense and get to a couple samples our work together – Enjoy!

Dana, The Second Time

I’m a firm believer that all things happen for a reason, which is why our original time scheduled with Dana hit a few snags, and we had to postpone until today. You see, today was a great day for photographs – in fact, it was gorgeous! We had a great time with Dana, and her faithful assistant (again, Mom.) They made the shoot great, and for that we say thank you!! Here’s some pics from the day (or in all reality, evening.) – Enjoy!

Sundays With Sean & Chelsea

There were three possibilities for the winner of this post title, but in the issue of fairness the decision was based on the good ol’ first come/first serve basis. The winner was Sean & Chelsea. Congratulations on winning this coveted post title, and also on your upcoming marriage.

All kidding aside, we had a great time working with this super-fun/good-looking couple, and thank them for making the journey to be with us on this beautiful Sunday. Here’s some samples from the shoot – Enjoy

Mostafa & Christina

After many months of waiting, we at Otis & James had the great pleasure of attending the wedding of Mostafa & Christina. It was a great day – James was able to spend a ton of time with the ladies as they prepared for the day, while Otis got to spend the first part with Lions, and then got to join up with the fun!

The wedding party and family was great to work with – we thank them for making the day great, and we wish the new couple total happiness! Here’s some of the fun – Enjoy!

Wednesday Sara

I know that the title, ‘Wednesday Sara’ seems strange, but Tomorrow when there is a Thursday Sara, it will make sense.

As I’m sure you have already guessed, we had the pleasure of working with the great spirited Sara, and her lovely assistant (aka Mom.) We just worked in the studio, and will be adding more later. For now, we offer some samples of our time together, and we ask you to keep peeling your eyeballs for more images later on down the road. So a big thanks to them, and to you reading this – Enjoy!

Early in the Morning*, with Nate & Tara

This past Sunday morning, we got off to an early start (far earlier than normal), with the so fresh & so clean Nate & Tara. They were all bright eyes/bushy tails (whatever that means), rip-roaring/ready-to-go! They were awesome, and we thank them for finding the time for their engagement photographs. As soon as we got done, Nate was off to the land of sunshine and oranges. We look forward to their wedding – they are great! On with the pics – Enjoy!**

*Special thanks to J.Kole & B.Guy
**For those of you counting, this was the last exclamation point in a post that was filled with them. I find that it really conveys super-excitement. e.g. – Sweet. Sweet!! In the first sweet, there is a hint of Generation X sarcasm. In the second sweet, there is a true feeling of excitement, or jubilation.
Let the exclamation points fly!!!!!

A Day Late…

It was going to either be this title, or ‘Better Late Than…’ You see, we should have had this post up quite a while ago. We…well…there’s no explaining our way out of this. Let’s just get you to the pics, and give a big thank you to Mandy, and her aspiring supermodel daughter (when she turned it on, she turned it on!!). Thank You, and Enjoy!
