This summertime ENCORE with Julia and Darryl was a ton of fun. Married for just about a year and a half, these two definitely still have that newlywed vibe going.
Darryl kept saying that Julia promised him a trip to DQ afterwards... I hope he got the biggest Cookie Dough Blizzard, EVER!
We had more "Julie's" than we knew what to do with, but a huge thank you goes out to Julie Davis of Hanover for the use of her fabulous Ford pickup. Thank you, Julie!
As usual, we had a great team to pull it all together:
Hair and Makeup: MJ Evans, Glamourazzi (Eden Prairie)
Styling: Julia O'Brien (Mpls)
Flowers: Shellie Jensen of Scarlet Lilly (Minnetonka)
Assistant / 2nd Shooter: Courtney Johnson

JULIA AND DARRYL
|Oh, I adore this picture.|
|Here we realized the red lipstick had to go. There was way too much kissing going on and Darryl looked like the Joker after their first big smooch!|
|Evening light is the best.|
|This girl has cool shoes. We only used a few of what she brought - just not enough time! Oh. Darryl's one pair were nice, too.|
|I am so lucky that yet another Julie who lives nearby is always willing to bring her '54 Ford truck to just about anywhere I ask when I am interested in using it. It is AWESOME, and if she ever paints it like she says she is going to, I will cry.|
These next few images were taken by Courtney Johnson, who has been tagging along on some shoots this summer.
|I did a more unusual edit to this one, and I love it.|
|This image of Courtney's is downright steamy! I was shooting in front of them and she found just a great opportunity from the side... add a funky edit and we have romance novel cover here, I think!|
|I know this is one of Courtney's favorite images from the shoot, so I gave it a nice soft, airy feel and like how it turned out. You know, Darryl really didn't seem to mind all the kissing stuff.|
|Shellie Jensen of Scarlett Lily Floral in Minnetonka ROCKS! If you are getting married, you MUST chat with her. She does great work, is super sweet and did I mention does great work?|
|I've wanted to photograph ANYONE in front of a large hay bale for quite some time, so I'm glad I finally got to try it last night. I know who is next for this sort of look as well!|
These last two in the truck are two of my very favorites of the day. Thank you so much Julia and Darryl. It was a lot of fun and you both were great sports!
