Mississippi Gulf Coast Wedding Photographer

 

Desiree and Dayvson are that couple who light up any room they walk into. Their playful banter and lighthearted personalities make them pure joy to be around. I had the absolute best time with them during their session in Gulfport-- We started off downtown where they gave me a little tour into their love story. We stopped at the restaurant they had their first date at and the spot where he proposed. It was so sweet to photograph them in these places that hold such a special place in their hearts! We then made our way over to the beach to make the most of the ocean, sand, and beautiful gulf coast sunset. Their wedding this spring will be my first one here in the south and I know it will be absolutely breathtaking!!!

Jessica & Brian had the honor of being my first Mississippi engagement session! We spent the afternoon wandering around Downtown Ocean Springs and then headed over to the Gulf Islands Nation Sea Shore to finish off their session (and to meet up with their pups)! I know I say this all the time, but these two seriously are the sweetest!!! They are kind, caring, passionate people, and the way they look at each other makes you want to melt. Their wedding day this coming spring will surely be one that gives me goosebumps! But for now, let's just enjoy this beautiful couple's engagement session--

Connie & Don | Ocean Spring Wedding Photographer http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2017/1/connie-don-ocean-spring-wedding-photographer Ocean Springs Wedding Photographer | Mississippi Gulf Coast

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

This wedding was so very special to me-- Not only were Connie & Don absolutely beautiful people who I completely adore, but their wedding was my last Ohio wedding (for now anyways), and I couldn't have asked for a better ending to that chapter in my career!! Holy smokes you guys, these two have some serious chemistry! Between them, the gorgeous old Court House, a massive thunder storm during the ceremony, a killer sunset, a quaint little restaurant, and some bistro lights, I was like a kid in a candy store! Definitely had chills, goosebumps, and several little happy dances through out the day. Don't get me wrong, I love big parties, but there is something quite romantic about a small wedding--

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

This day, this wedding, this couple... simply stunning. Stacey and Joe were an absolute dream to work with. They are kind, caring, beautiful people and their friends and family are just the same. The amount of love felt on their wedding day was immeasurable! These guys seriously had me misty-eyed or gave me goosebumps through out the entire day (and I LOVED IT). Being able to feel the raw emotions of a wedding is one of the reasons I have the best job ever! Here is a look at their gorgeous day--

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

Yen & John's wedding can be summed up in one word - FUN!!!! Seriously, this wedding was a blast to be part of. It may have rained for half the day, but I think that ended up being a good thing because we got such an amazing variety of images! Between the rain and the sun, the bride's 3 dresses (two of which were traditional Vietnamese style), the confetti party popper entrance, the balloon artist, the AMAZING chocolate treats, and the absolutely wonderful people attending, there is no doubt this was a spectacular day.

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

As always, I'm super delayed on my blog post for this wedding... I blame the whole moving from Dayton, OH to Ocean Springs, MS thing. But ANYWAYS, now that we are settled in and I feel like a normal human being again, it's back to the grind! --- Danielle & Kurtis had the honor of being my last Ohio wedding while actually living in Ohio. It was such a beautiful day and the venue was TO DIE FOR. This down-to-earth, feel-good, country celebration is surely one I will never forget!

How Motherhood Has Changed My View On Life & Photography | H.K. Photography http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2016/5/how-motherhood-has-changed-my-view-on-life-photography-h-k-photography Ocean Springs Photographer | Mississippi Gulf Coast

Mothers Day Blog Post | May 8, 2016

 

 

Today is a very special day for mama’s everywhere... HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! 

For me personally, this is my very first Mother’s Day celebrated with my sweet, almost 1 year old, Ellie.  This past year has been an amazing whirlwind and I just wanted to take a moment to stop and reflect on how much has changed in 12 months and what I have learned about life, love, work, and everything in between!

Being a mom EVERYTHING changes!  You are constantly tired.  Always.  And even on the longest days you never feel like you have enough time to get everything done.  When you own your own business that can be tricky, and because of that, stress creeps in fairly easily!

However, those things pale in comparison to the amount of love and pure joy that little human fills your heart with… seriously, it’s insane.  They become your reason for being.  Watching my sweet girl grow in just this past year has been the best thing ever, but it’s made me realize time goes by way too fast!  Stay little forever please!!

Being that Ellie is not quite 1, she isn’t talking or walking yet… but her personality is starting to shine through.  She is HYSTERICAL; she does things purposefully to make you laugh.  She likes to take her time when learning new things, and she will only do them when she is ready… I’m already getting the “don’t rush me mom, I've got this” look (MY mom would call that karma!).  I may be a bit biased, but she is simply amazing! Ugh, I just love her to pieces.

 

 

Getting back on track- Here are three things I have learned this year:

1. Time management and prioritizing.  As any mom’s out there know, infants require A LOT of attention, especially from their mama (and even more so if you’re breastfeeding).  They also wake up several times in the night so sleep is basically non-existent. When they’re awake you’re spending time with them and when they’re sleeping you have to decide if you’re going to work, clean, eat, or nap… and let’s be honest, napping usually sounds the best.  It took some serious adjusting to this new routine.  Thankfully now that she’s a bit older, she has regular naps and is sleeping through the night (sort of), so I can better focus my time to get work done when needed!

 

2. Enthusiasm and excitement.  When you get going in the hustle and bustle of a daily routine, it’s easy to lose sight of all the happiness that surrounds us.  When you look at the world through the eyes of a child, that joy is brought back into focus.  For Ellie, the smallest of things will make her giggle… a funny sound, getting licked by the dogs/chasing the cat, or learning something new such as walking behind her toy.  Her laughter and happiness makes my heart explode.  It also reminds me to enjoy my own accomplishments to their fullest before moving on. I try to do this with each and every photoshoot.

 

 

3. Last but not least, living in the present.  A year or two before being pregnant I read a book by Eckhart Tolle called A New Earth- Awaken Your Life’s Purpose (a great read if your needing some uplifting motivation)! This book talks about the importance of living in the present. I began integrating this into my life after reading it and now with my little one I find it more important than ever!  She is not going to be little forever, I won’t be able to rock her to sleep forever, or watch her learn how to walk for the first time forever.  So I soak up those moments and try to make them last as long as possible. This is what I hold near and dear to my heart as a photographer as well… I am preserving very special moments for my clients. A first dance at a wedding for example, only lasts as long as the song. But by looking through images, couples are able to reminisce about that moment and get those newly wed butterflies all over again.

Stacey & Joe | Engagement Session http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2016/5/stacey-joe-engagement-session Ocean Springs Wedding Photographer | Mississippi Gulf Coast

Dayton, OH Engagement Session

 

It seems like this past winter ALL of my sessions happened to fall on the coldest days of the year, but my clients are such troopers and these two were no exception. Stacey and Joe were an absolute pleasure to work with! We had a great time wandering around the Oregon district and then headed over to Wegerzyn Garden Metropark to finish things off. I cannot wait to come back to Dayton for their wedding this summer.  It's going to be a beautiful day!!

P.S. I have way too many favorites from this session to select just a few... so enjoy!

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

I'm a wee bit overdue on this blog post, but better late than never! This wedding takes us back to the oh so chilly days in Dayton, OH this past December.  Despite the temperature outside, the day was filled with so much warmth, love and pure joy.  Sam & Mike are the absolute sweetest couple-- so genuine and kind to not only each other, but everyone around them.  It was such an honor to be part of their big day and I am excited to say I will be traveling back to Ohio this fall for a maternity session!!! Baby Busch is on the way people <3

Big News | HKPhoto is Moving! http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2016/3/big-news-hkphoto-is-moving Ocean Springs Wedding Photography | Mississippi Gulf Coast

After three memorable years in Dayton, OH the time has officially come for us to move to our next destination! With relocation being simply a fact of life due to my husband being in the Air Force, we were anxiously awaiting the news of our next assignment. When word came that we would be heading down south to Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Mississippi, we were shocked and thrilled! We cannot WAIT for this next adventure for our family, and I personally am beyond excited to bring Hannah Kaye Photography to the deep south and Gulf Coast =]


As I look back to when we first arrived to Dayton in 2013, I realize that I only “knew” one couple (and I say “knew” because I had only met them once prior to moving out… my husband was in ROTC with the gal back in collage). I remember being extremely overwhelmed and terrified about starting up my business in a brand new city with no previous friends, family, or connections in the area. It was a slow start as expected, but as I scroll through all of the sessions I have done in the past three years, my heart is filled with so much joy & happiness-- I just want to say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, to all of you who trusted me to capture your important milestones!!! Whether it was your engagement session & wedding day, maternity pictures & the sweet stages of your baby’s first year, family photos, or an intense Crossfit session, it has been the biggest honor.  I have absolutely loved getting to know each and every one of you. I cannot express enough how much you all mean to me, and Dayton will forever hold a very special place in my heart!


Now that we are just a few months away from the big move, I have been feeling overwhelmed with the thought of starting fresh again. Another new city with no previous friends, family, or connections in the area. This time however, I'm not so terrified. From my experience here in Dayton, I know that I will overcome the challenge and I know that I will have the honor of meeting so many amazing people!

Mississippi's Gulf Coast is absolutely beautiful and I can't believe we will get to call it home! Our journey will begin down there at the very end of June this year. Allowing time for us to settle in, my hopes are to begin sessions in the early fall =] I also recently signed up for my first Bridal Show in Biloxi this summer and already feel welcomed with open arms! I am so ready to get things started!

If you are a Biloxi, MS resident and are interested in my work, I would love to set up a time to meet with you when we move (until then we can chat via email or phone)!


One last thing-- to celebrate this exciting time, I will be offering some special sales and/or package add-ons for all session types!!! If you live down in the Mississippi Gulf Coast and want the chance to celebrate with me, simply follow me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/HannahKayePhoto) and on Instagram (@hannahkayephotography)... more information will be posted there this summer and the Hannah Kaye Photography "Housewarming Party" will officially begin when we arrive =] Stay tuned!!!

Ocean Springs Wedding Photographer | The Four P's http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2016/2/oceansprings-wedding-photographer-the-four-ps

 

Ocean Springs Wedding Photographer

Ocean Springs, MS wedding photographer Hannah Lamson of Hannah Kaye Photography LLC offers brides her all when it comes to their Mississippi Gulf Coast wedding photography.  Are you getting married in the Ocean Springs or Mississippi Gulf Coast area? Here is a list of the "Four P’s" you should keep in mind when looking for your Mississippi Gulf Coast wedding photographer!

 

<< 1 >> Price

When searching Ocean Springs wedding photographers, price is always a major factor.  Yes, budget plays a big role when it comes to your wedding day and vender decisions, but it should not be the only thing that matters.  There are so many stories out there from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based simply on price and the results were a nightmare.  Don’t let that be you!  Think about it, when the wedding day is over, the DJ leaves, your cake has been eaten, decorations returned, and so on, your wedding photography will be the one thing you have to remember your wedding day.  Make sure you are investing wisely.

<< 2 >> Product

What are you going to do with the hundreds of images from your wedding day? What kind of product does your wedding photographer provide? Photo printing sites are great and all but when it comes to such an important day in your life, go for quality!  Your Ocean Springs wedding photographer can (and really SHOULD) provide you with beautiful and unique wall art and gorgeous custom designed wedding albums. Don’t underestimate the importance of a stellar wedding album from your wedding day- it essentially becomes your first family keepsake and a tangible item you always have to remember your wedding by.

When selecting a Ocean Springs wedding photographer you should look and see if they offer product that represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes and wall art can range in style and look.  What is your style and what kind of work do you want hanging in your home?

<< 3 >> Personality

Selecting your Ocean Springs wedding photographer is a big deal.  Not only are you choosing a photographer for your wedding day but you are also hiring someone that will be interacting with you and your loved ones ALL DAY on your wedding day. Therefore personality becomes a huge part of the selection process.

Your Mississippi Gulf Coast wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day. It is important to keep in mind that you more than likely will be working with your wedding photographer for a year or maybe longer (factoring in engagement session and wedding photography meetings), so think about your personality, your family dynamics, and your bridal party.  Do you want someone high volume and outgoing or would you prefer a more quiet and calming energy surrounding you on your wedding day? It’s an important decision and more importantly it is completely YOUR decision.

<< 4 >> Promptness

Last but certainly not least, promptness is something you definitely need to consider when selecting your Ocean Springs wedding photographer.  How quickly does your Ocean Springs wedding photographer answer your emails? Are they on time for your meetings? How soon after your engagement session or wedding day will your images be ready for viewing?

Speed does not necessarily mean poor quality! A prompt wedding photographer will be on top of the time all the time, it’s part of the job. You don’t want to be waiting a month after your wedding day to see your wedding photos.  It should really be 2 weeks tops.  Your Ocean Springs wedding photographer should make you a priority.  If you are truly a high priority to them then your emails will be answered promptly, they will arrive a few minutes early to any meetings, and your wedding photos will have a quick turn around time.  Don’t be stuck waiting!

These two make my heart so happy!!!  I could ramble on forever about how amazing Connie & Don are... not only are they sweet, playful, and an absolute joy to be around (and to photograph), but they are also genuinely wonderful people.

Dayton, OH Engagement Session

 

Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite for many reasons.  Not only do I love getting to know my couples in a more laid back setting, but I feel these sessions provide the opportunity to show off the layers and dynamics found within the pair! Danielle and Kurtis are a great example of this-- We started off classy and ended up country! These two are so down to earth and simply great people to be around. Carriage Hill was the perfect backdrop for these gorgeous pictures and I am beyond excited to spend the day at Canopy Creek for their wedding this summer!!!

Dayton, OH Engagement Session

 

 

"John and I are quite kids at heart. I hope that we can have more fun and crazy shots rather than just mostly serious lovebird pictures." -- Fun and lighthearted?! Something out of the norm? Absolutely!

I was SO excited when Yen emailed me about some ideas she had for her and John's engagement pictures. As they walked towards me at Cox Arboretum for their session I instantly noticed her hamburger converse shoes and understood that this girl was totally serious about how adorably fun and carefree she and her fiance are! These crossfitting cuties were a blast to work with!!! I'm so excited to see what their wedding day brings next summer =]

Ocean Springs Wedding Photography | Newsome http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2015/9/biloxi-wedding-photography-newsome Ocean Springs Wedding Photographer | Mississippi Gulf Coast

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

On a gorgeous day in July, Jessica & Marshall shared their absolutely beautiful, heart warming vows, in front of friends and family-- happy tears were shed and love filled the air.  When a couple opts for their first time seeing each other be when the bride walks down the isle, I ALWAYS make sure to get the groom's reaction. I won't lie, this one made me a little misty eyed!!

Belly to Baby Photography | Miller Family http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2015/8/belly-to-baby-photography-miller-family Ocean Springs Photographer | Mississippi Gulf Coast

Dayton, OH Belly to Baby Session

 

These are my new favorite sessions that I offer-- Belly to Baby allows families to watch their sweet little bundle of joy grow with six photography sessions during baby's first year! We start with a maternity session to show off Mama's gorgeous glow and bump, then there is a newborn session, followed by 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 1 year. I will continue to add to this blog post as we have each of the sessions =]

 

Maternity: I met this wonderful couple at one of the Bridal Expo's I was at (they weren't there for wedding planning but I'm sure glad we bumped into each other... pun maybe intended =]).  I was about 20 weeks into my pregnancy at the time and as we got to talking we realized Sarah wasn't that far behind me in her own pregnancy! You should have seen us during their maternity session... This was the last shoot I did before having my baby so Sarah and I were waddling around the park and her wonderful husband, Brett, was passing out water bottles left and right making sure we stayed hydrated LOL. Totally worth it. Check out these gorgeous images!!!--

 

 

New Born: Ahhhh this little nugget was so awake during his session!!! Absolutely loved photographing him. Enjoy the cuteness!--

Ocean Springs Wedding Photography | Rachael & Jacob http://www.hannahkayephotography.com/blog/2015/8/oceansprings-wedding-photography-rachael-jacob Ocean Springs Wedding Photographer | Mississippi Gulf Coast

Dayton, OH Wedding

 

Fate brought us together during one of the Dayton Bridal Expo's a while back-- I remember seeing a woman walking up to my booth with a stroller and as she pulled in I looked down and saw a familiar face.  Her sweet daughter instantly recognized me as well. I used to nanny for a wonderful family and this little girl went to school with the boy I took care of!! She was one of the more outgoing kids in the class and would always say hello to me when I would pick Jonah up from school. After a "Hey! I know you!!!" moment, it was a done deal! It was meant to be. Rachael and Jacob (and their sweet little girls) were so much fun to work with! This was another one of those weddings that fell just a week away from my due date... ugh. I was happy to make it to their ceremony to get some shots in but I was BEAT by the end of it! After snagging a few more shots of the couple right after the ceremony I headed home but thankfully Ashley Fox of Ashley Fox Photography stepped in for me for the day and helped to capture some seriously gorgeous images =] Here's a little glimpse into their beautiful day--

Since I am now officially considered "Full Term" and Baby Lamson could technically arrive any day (though let's hope she waits just a little bit longer) I figured it was about time to take some maternity pictures of myself with my big ol' belly!  Now, as anyone who has attempted it knows, taking awesome, artistic, and beautiful pictures of yourself, BY YOURSELF, is not the easiest task-- Add onto that the sad truth of how inexplicably difficult & tiring getting up and down is when you're 37 weeks pregnant and well, you can imagine it took me quite some time to produce these shots!  But I must say I am super excited with how they turned out and it was totally worth the workout =] I can't wait to finally meet our little girl soon!!!
