Hannah & Payton Married!

Hannah and Payton are married! These two are some of the greatest people I’ve had the fortune of meeting and being able to call my friends. They’re both so incredibly kind and loving, and both have such a love for people and each other. Being surrounded by Hannah and Payton and their friends and family who share so much joy with during this wedding celebration was such a blessing to be a part of.

These two are the real deal. With such a love for the Lord, other, and each other I know they’ll do big things.

2014 Wedding Year in Review

This past year has not paused in the slightest waiting for me to catch up on my photo review, but it was too awesome to skip over. :) There were so many great times that this will be a two-part post (weddings and non-weddings). 2014 marked another fantastic year working with the sweetest people in the world across six states. It seems as though people are still putting up with my quirky take on humor and my new found cat lady syndrome, so that’s a win in my book. :)

Included in this post are some of the greatest and most kind people I know. These folks are the real deal, always keeping me smiling and excited for the impact they’ll make in the world. It’s been my honor and privilege to share in so many momentous occasions of happiness, laughter, tears, anticipation, and joy.

This is the story of stories.

I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thanks for all of you who made it so special! :)

Meredith & David Married!

Meredith and David are married! It has been wonderful seeing all the love between these two and being a part of this celebration. It’s always such a blessing when the family and friends are so kind and loving that make feel like a part of the family. I’ve photographed both of Meredith’s sibling’s weddings, so I like to think of myself as the fourth child by now. :)

It was a great time traveling and seeing new places, but I’ll always smile looking back on this weekend because of the laughter, excitement, and the special moments. These two are the real deal.

Big thanks to the talented Peyman Razavi for shooting with me, as well as the super sweet Ruth Carbo, coordinator extraordinaire. :)

Brooke & Nathan Married!

Brooke and Nathan are married! I’ve known these two for what seems like forever. It has been exciting seeing Nathan and Brooke throughout their relationship, seeing them grow together, seeing how their personalities compliment one another in so many ways, being there for Nathan’s proposal, doing some exploring on their engagement session, and also being here for the big wedding!

These two brighten every place or conversation they’re in and I couldn’t be happier to see them finally together. :)

Judsonia Arkansas Wedding – Rachel & Jason

Rachel and Jason are married! It has been such a joy working with these two. From first meeting in Midnight Oil–awkwardly sitting in the corner because the place was so packed–to hearing about their story, adventuring to Tahkodah while discovering some sweet music, to all the wedding planning, it’s been so great getting to know Rachel and Jason. They’re the real deal.

And then there was the wedding. Jason and Rachel’s families together made quite the perfect collaboration of hilarity, love, and an overall fun nature. All this made for quite the killer time.

Here is Rachel and Jason’s wedding day!

Monica & Daniel Married!

Monica and Daniel are married! I’ve gotten to know Monica quite a bit over these past few years. We’ve had some good adventures in Arkansas in college and some fun and very memorable times with friends and my family up in Pennsylvania. And for this adventure–St. Louis! Monica and Daniel are both very sweet and fun people (which they seemingly inherited from their families :) ) which made for quite the fantastic wedding day.

Here is Monica and Daniel’s wedding day!

Abigail & James Married!

Abigail and James are married! It has been a pleasure getting to know these two and seeing them grow together. Abigail and James are both kind, gentle, loving, and always looking to put others first. I’m excited to see all the ways God will work through their marriage. :)

Part of what made me love this wedding so much was that Abigail and James’ families reminded me so much of my own family–close-knit, enjoy the simple things, and loving. Things couldn’t have been any more perfect. Here’s the wedding day!

Sarah Kaye & Brett Married!

What a wedding this was.

The highlight of this wedding wasn’t the dreamy sunrise beach setting, or the perfect light, or travelling to Florida. The highlight was seeing Sarah Kaye and Brett’s adoration for each other and the immense love and support from friends and family that has shaped them into who they are today.

Sarah Kaye and Brett are so loving and servant-hearted people…from their career choice of nursing to just really wanting to serve pancakes to all the guests at their wedding reception. It’s who they are. And they’re a blessing to so many people around them. It’s so great to see.

That’s what does it for me. Then again, the beautiful sunrise beach setting doesn’t hurt either. :)

And this is just the beginning…
