    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, feel free to look around and add a comment or send me a note. Sharing life’s BEAUTIs from my perspective…enjoy! Jenelle

Dave + Karey | Inspirational Shoot

It is wonderful + exciting to see an idea come together so beautifully like this inspirational shoot did!  Early in the year, I brainstormed with Laurie about a creative shoot and to have another excuse to get together.  We each created an inspiration board and then collaborated with a team of talented + creative ladies to bring our ideas to fruition.  They executed our vision for this spring inspired session so well!  It felt so different for both of us as photographers to basically just show up to the shoot once we had the initial ideas in place.  We are used to being much more involved in the planning process so this was a treat to show up to things put together so well and really enjoy the time together + behind our cameras!  This is one of the benefits of working with someone like Sara who is starting up a wedding planning business, Devoted Elegance.  Our model couple Dave + Karey were superb, totally sweet together and their outfits choices were amazing and fit perfectly with our vision!

Thank you to each one that put so much time, heart and enthusiasm into making this shoot a success and a very enjoyable evening!!

Make sure to head over to look at laurie ann photography’s blog post too.  I had a great time shooting alongside Laurie and her husband Andrew again!

Aron + Kaitlin | Estevan, Sk Wedding

I could not have hoped for a more wonderful couple and beautiful day to start off this summer’s weddings with!  Aron + Kaitlin are wonderful, happy and so in love and their wedding day was an absolute joy to be a part of!  We started with a very hearty welcome into the bride’s parents home and Kaitlin was one of the most relaxed, fully prepared brides I have known!!  Take note of the hands lacing up the bride’s dress.  Kaitlin’s dad was hands on – literally – with helping plan and getting ready for their special day.  She has a special bond with her parents and you can see by the involvement and support in their lives.  They proudly walked her down the aisle and handed her off to the man that they know will do everything he can to take care of their incredible daughter!  You couldn’t help but smile watching these two!  It was clearly shown that they are surrounded by so many who love and support them.  My favorite parts of the day were stepping back and capturing them interacting as they do.  In genuine love and happiness.  Thank you so much Aron + Kaitlin for having us share in your amazing wedding!  Congratulations and wishes for many happy, wonderful years together!!

Officially Mr + Mrs!!

There were lots of special elements like on her bouquet for their ‘key to my heart’ theme.

A 30 second kiss to end their first dance as husband + wife!

Adam + Kara | Montana Engagement

On a week with the forecast showing clouds, more clouds and high probabilities of rain it didn’t make shooting look very likely.  Thankfully the rain clouds pushed to the side and let the sun shine.  Just what we hoped for!!  Making a perfect evening to capture these two that are excited for their future together!  When I photographed Kara a few weeks before I didn’t expect to have her in front of my camera again so soon.  She is wonderful and fun to photograph, along with a great guy that has her world spinning round!  And easily brings a smile to her face.  They were adorable + fun and so happy together!  A couple weeks ago he took her on a little treasure hunt that ended with him asking her to be his wife.  Many adventures await these two, congratulations!!
