Now offering Photo 101 in Colorado!

I am thrilled to be offering a class here in Colorado Springs! I really enjoyed teaching Photo 101 classes in Florida and have loved seeing my participants flourish in their photography skills. If you are looking to finally learn how to use your DSLR and take pictures of your family or friends, this is the class for you! In simple to understand terms, we will learn about ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed and how they work together. We’ll also discuss lighting, your settings and how to make the most out of your family pictures no matter the age and stage of your children or who or what you are photographing. This is a beginner class.

February 2015 Photo 101 with Melissa Mowrey
Details:

You must own a DSLR to participate. Bring any lenses you own.

Class takes place in North Colorado Springs.

We will have our class from 1-3:30pm, then head out to try your skills at a sunset session outdoors.

Participants who register by February 1 will receive a $50 off coupon for a family session to be used in 2015.

I accept paypal, cash, check and credit card for the class. Due no later than Friday, February 13th.

Limit 8 participants.

Email Melissa at info@melissamowrey.com or call 850-485-0658 to register today!

Organic Beach Wedding

Congratulations to Sarah and Mark who were wed on October 18, 2014 on the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast. I had the privilege to travel to Florida for their wedding and to meet their close-knit family. I truly enjoyed photographing their wedding and capturing their love in front of their family. My brother, Kyle, was my second shooter which made the wedding even more fun! Some of Kyle’s images are seen here in the blog post, he is very talented.

I wish them a lifetime of happiness! Here’s the story of Sarah & Mark:

1. How did you two meet?

Mark and I actually met at a local county fair in 2001–so Kentucky, I know. We dated for a few years, and then decided to go our separate ways–we were so young! Four years ago, however, we happened to run into one another–starting talking, and the rest is history! For some reason I always knew that I would marry him.

2. What was your first date like?

So our first date was your typical high school date–dinner and a movie, nothing too spectacular :o)

3. Who proposed and how did it happen?

Mark proposed to me a few days before my 30th birthday. He surprised me at a park that we were strolling through after a quick late lunch/early dinner. He then had a huge surprise party for me directly following.

4. Describe what you think makes your relationship “work”.

We complement each other very well–we’re very much opposites. For whatever reason, that just works for us.

5. Where do they see themselves 5 years from now?

Married, with 2 kids–5, if it were up to Mark. Ha!

Castle Rock Rustic

I am a sucker for a red barn and fall leaves! Moving to Colorado has been such a blessing in so many ways, but especially when it comes to scenery. This little escape is just off the highway between the Springs and Denver, what a gem! The Horn Family was a blast to photograph – they are simply adorable! Enjoy this sneak of their session this Fall.

Not your typical yearbook photos.

Not your typical yearbook photos! Glad I could help Tanner capture some great snapshots for his yearbook photo. He was a great sport – even got him laughing!

Fall Mini Lifestyle Sessions are here!

I adore Fall. However, I am from the south and this year will be my first Fall in Colorado, so my opinion may change here shortly! I am embracing the change and with that, I am now offering a limited number of mini fall lifestyle sessions in the Colorado Springs area.

For 20-minutes, I will capture your family, your children or your animals just being together and being yourselves. My style of photography is not to get everyone looking at me with cheesy grins! I strive to capture the true emotions, love and real moments between a family. I will guide you but will be a fly on the wall for the most part.

To book a mini session, give me a call at 850-485-0658 or email me at info@melissamowrey.com. Mini sessions are limited to families of 5 due to the short time we will have together. I look forward to meeting you!
