I have a confession. It’s the middle of January and I’m definitely listening to jazzy Christmas music while writing this blog post. Only because this wedding was SO festive and going through these photos just made me wanna get back into the Christmas spirit! When Emily & Tyler got engaged December 1st, they knew they wanted to have a holly jolly wedding to celebrate their favorite holiday as well as their marriage. Exactly one year later, they tied the knot in the same church where Emily’s parents got married!Read More
One day back in high school, Kayla tugged on her friend’s arm and pointed to a guy down the hall (Fun Fact: this is the same high school I went to. RDP!) She said something along the lines of “Hey, he’s pretty cute!” That guy was Steven. Fast forward through graduation, and their paths cross again. Kayla & Steven started hanging out and soon found that they had so much in common. One summer night, in an arbor covered with twinkling lights, Steven got down on one knee and asked Kayla to spend forever with him…Read More
Her shiny diamond ring shimmers as her hand clutches the cold beer glass. It's a warm summer Saturday night, but downtown is surprisingly serene. He leans over and lands a kiss on her cheek. A local musician strums his guitar and sings a tune in the corner of the patio. What a perfect evening.
This was the scene for the start of Emily & Tyler's downtown date night engagement session.
I'm so excited to be sharing Kiersten & Roger's engagement session today! These two have the cutest love story. They have been best friends since middle school and have been dating for the past 7 years. This past Christmas, Kiersten and her family were opening presents, when Roger surprised her with a small, square box. Kiersten opened it up to find a beautiful diamond ring! He proposed, she said yes, and now they get to spend forever together!Read More
The groom sees his beautiful bride walking down the aisle and can't contain his emotions. The maid of honor gives her speech about watching her best friend fall in love with the man of her dreams. The bride and her father share their first dance and all of those childhood memories come flooding back. These are some of the moments of a wedding day that are such a joy to capture. See, I'm a complete romantic and as soon as I see someone tearing up during these moments, I'll start to lose it right along with them. As a wedding photographer, it's important to suck it up and keep shooting, but seeing those happy tears is just another reminder of how special my job is. Having the privilege of capturing the little pieces that make up a love story is an honor that will never get old.Read More
It's been FOREVER since I've blogged a senior session and I'm so excited that my first one back is with one of my friends, Kristin! This girl was a freshman when she joined the dance team (back when I was a senior!) and I just can't wrap my head around the fact that she's a senior now! Where has the time gone? Kristin is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met... SERIOUSLY! Not only is she drop dead gorgeous and has an infectious smile, but she also has the kindest heart. Here's a sneak peek into her senior session!Read More
