summer 2009 engagement sessions

Filed in engagements shot by on at

The Ayres Photography blog is here! It has taken over a year to get it up and running (between shooting and editing and meeting with couples, there is very little time for writing code and designing flash headers), so we are super-excited to finally start blogging our adventures in photography.

Just to make sure everyone is on the “same page,” let’s review…

Who we are: extraordinary wedding photojournalists who also take exquisite “lifestyle” portraits of couples, families, children, and pets.

Oh yeah, and we’re also a recently married couple ourselves! The one-year anniversary is only weeks away; the first year flew right by us. We work well together. ?


So, 2009…our busiest year so far as professional photographers. We figured that we ought to bring everyone up to speed (as much as possible) on what we’ve been up to for the last year, before we start blogging the “goings-on” of our day-to day photographic endeavors. The next couple of posts will attempt to cover a very condensed version of the “highlights” of 2009. We’ll start with engagements. There’s no way we can pack them all into one post, but here are some of our favorites (in no particular order.)
