Erica and Peter Married | A Tiny House Resort Wedding by Heidi Hanson Photography

Erica and Peter’s wedding was at the cutest spot I’d ever seen. A Tiny House Resort, a whole resort dedicated to Tiny Houses. It was a soggy October day….Let’s just say if rain on your wedding day is good luck, then they are going to have lifetimes of luck! It poured buckets during their first look, ceremony and reception! The weather did not cooperate for this all outdoor wedding, but they did not let it dampen their spirits. They had smiles on their faces the entire day.

Here are some of my favorites from their day! Starting off with the cutest “Tiny” invitation we’ve ever seen.

To say that I loved Rebecca and Matthew’s wedding, would be an understatement. From the moment I walked in and Rebecca hugged me I knew it was going to be an amazing day!  These two are the cutest, sweetest and most genuinely nicest people ever. I loved every moment of their wedding day from their fun friends, to frocking in the corn maze, I hope you these images as much as I do.

Oh and did I mention, they build robots!  Check out their pie topper! Enjoy!

Crossing off one item from my list | Heidi Hanson Photography Specializing in Weddings

It feels like forever since I’ve gone out on my own, well December was a while ago, so yeah I’ll go with forever 🙂

One of my main goals was really to focus on weddings, while I do love the babies and families, weddings are really where my passion lies.  Don’t worry folks, I will still do family sessions for you 🙂

So building my brand around weddings was a huge priority.  If you’ve been following me you see that I’ve got a new logo, which I love. Simple with a little funk…( love me some funky), it is my photography style.

I love capturing the little moments that happen throughout the day, moments that the newly married couple might not see.  Moments when captured in a photograph snap you right back to that day.

This is me and my style.

So without further ado we get to the title of this post….Crossing off one thing from my list…

The new website! Yeah! So excited to introduce you to my new site. It was a stressful time, but I made it through with some awesome tech support and my husband (who thinks he did the whole site, ha ha, he didn’t) but I can still give him a few props!

It still needs a few tweaks, but I really do love it. Simple, funky…it’s me…..So enjoy! And please feel free to pass along the new site to all your friends and family.

FEELING SEXY AND A CONTEST | HEIDI HANSON PHOTOGRAPHY SPECIALIZING IN WEDDINGS IN CT

You are beautiful. Your true beauty lies in becoming yourself ~ Anonymous

I know a lot of us don’t like the way we look, myself included, but I’m working on that 😉

Boudoir shoots are fast becoming one of my favorite things to shoot.  Boudoir photo sessions are tasteful photos that hint at sexiness. They’re fun, sexy and all while maintain your comfort level. Plus they make a great gift for that special someone, for Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, Christmas or even as a deployment gift.

Typically boudoir sessions are done in the privacy of your home or in a hotel or friends house.  Sessions are usually around 2 hours and include multiple wardrobe changes.  You don’t have to be a size 0 to be sexy!  Look at Adele, she’s hot!

Boudoir sessions are also fun if you bring your friends, they also make for a great bachelorette party!  So today I wanted to announce that I’m doing a contest for a Boudoir Party!  Invite your friends to bring their sexy lingerie, hot high heels or their partner’s favorite football/baseball jersey.  Bring some bubbly and be prepared to have more fun than you thought possible!

So here’s how the contest works. You have to comment to this blog post and say why you’d like to host a boudoir party.  Winner will receive their session free!  All you have to do is invite four ladies to their party!  And if that isn’t enough the winner will also receive a mini-book from their session!  For your guests, each girl will pay $100 for the session and have the option of two outfits (more can be added for an additional fee), and a DVD of edited images from the shoot.  All photos will be placed on an online gallery for easy order (password protected of course)!

So all you have to do to win is just comment below about why you would love to host a boudoir party!  That’s it…winner will be chosen next week!  Girls it’s time to bring sexy back!!

BRANDING | CONNECTICUT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY HEIDI HANSON (Formerly PHphotography)

Ugh the dreaded “B” word.

Yes this is something I should have done a while ago and was procrastinating, which is weird because I don’t generally think of myself as a procrastinator.

So one of my big hairy goals from Justin and Mary was re-branding, because I didn’t really have a ‘brand’ per se

In fact their advice was awesome, just keep a folder on your desktop and drag anything that catches your eye onto it…so I’ve gone one step further and made my own Pinterest board.  What did we ever do before Pinterest? We literally can plan entire weddings, find a cocktail recipe, ideas for birthday parties and what to make for dinner tonight on Pinterest.   Pure Genius!

I know yes I’m procrastinating, back to branding.

So orange, for as long as I can remember has been my favorite color. Literally the brighter the better.  Maybe not fluorescent, but definitely tangerine.  My high school graduation we all had to wear white (well the girls) and the boys had to wear red.  Well me being the rebel I am I had to be different….so I wore a pant suit (not a skirt like what we were supposed to), so you could see my pants below my cap and gown (oh the horror) and craziest orange shoes ever.  Oh I loved it and oh I heard crap about it from teachers, but really were they not going to let me graduate because of my shoe color??

Nope.

So fast forward to college graduation, the rules were less rigid, so I went with a modest pair of fluorescent orange platforms and super, super short orange sun dress….those were the days. Loved those shoes…I think I still have them, hmmm….

Okay again procrastinating, so back to branding.

Orange, my color.

What looks great with orange?

I thought long and hard about this and research so many other places and google image searched and still found myself coming back to Pinterest.

So what looks great with orange?

Gray.

OK, so now that I have the colors down I’ve been adding things to the “My Brand” board and have a decent idea of how this is all coming together.

But had I not been pushed by Justin and Mary, I can only imagine me ending up with purple and pink (ugh my two least favorite colors).  Which of course my daughter loves being a ‘girly girl.”

So orange and gray, here’s a little sneak peek….
