Lorraine & Kyle’s Hilarious Engagement Session by Powers Photography Studios

Lorraine & Kyle’s Hilarious Engagement Session by Powers Photography Studios

I’m pretty much a fan of anyone who steadfastly marches to the beat of their own drum. You. Do. You.  So when I spotted this fan-freaking-tastically great (yep, all of that) session from Powers Photography, I knew I had to share it.  As you know, most engagement sessions involve lots of kisses on the forehead and cuddling in piles of autumn leaves and inexplicably standing ramrod-straight side by side. You know, things every couple does every day, right? Wrong. They might be pretty, but most e-sessions aren’t exactly representative of a couple’s personality. Enter Lorraine and Kyle. This goofy twosome wanted an engagement session that highlighted their offbeat senses of humor and would make their friends laugh. And they succeeded. Here they are below, starting the session off normal, and then things go terribly, hilariously amiss…

Lorraine, what inspired your unique e-session?

In the past year we had both been involved in over 8 weddings and we witnessed so many couples stressing out and getting caught up in the little details and trying to project this image of perfection and happiness. It is very easy to worry about how we are being perceived through social media. We all want to look like we found true love and project ourselves as these adorable and flawless packages.

We both know that we are just goofy and we try not to take life too seriously and love our cats, so we decided to include them in the pictures. If you lose your sense of humor in life, its seems like you do not have much. We both love to make each other laugh and we wanted to remind ourselves to do what makes us happy. As a “crazy cat couple,” these pictures will make us laugh every time we look at them throughout they years and remind us that nothing is that serious. We are not pretty or sentimental people, we tried to do a couple “nice” photos and busted up laughing and how fake and posed it seemed. We want people to look at us and laugh, know that we are genuine, share in our laughter and the goofy, silly ride that is love.

Michele & Chase’s Snowy Mt. Hood, OR Wedding by Powers Photography Studios

Timberline Lodge is a really magical place. Even though most people recognize it as one of the hotels used in The Shining, there is nothing creepy about this warm and inviting space.  Centered around a massive stone fireplace, the lodge is very cozy, intimate, and inviting. So, it’s a no-brainer why Michele and Chase chose this venue for their elopement. The couple is even perfectly addressed for the occasion, with Michele hiding snow boots under her wedding dress and Chase sporting a dashing navy shawl collar cardigan (I’m pretty sure he has convinced me that this ought to be the go-to wardrobe for rustic grooms).  Thank you to Powers Photography Studios for sharing this special wedding with us!
