PEACEFUL GARDEN WEDDING | KATIE & JIM

PEACEFUL GARDEN WEDDING | KATIE & JIM

I took a sigh of relief the moment I met Katie and Jim. The day we met at their wedding venue for our consultation and they showed up with not only the paper work I asked for, but an organized schedule of their wedding, I knew it was meant to be.

Their wedding day was a hot one. It was a muggy day to begin with, but right as the ceremony was starting the clouds opened up and the heat rained in. It may've been 90 degrees, but that didn't stop them from enjoying every second of their special day.

EMOTIONAL DOWNTOWN WEDDING | CHLOE & MARK

EMOTIONAL DOWNTOWN WEDDING | CHLOE & MARK

I honestly have no words. The venue, The Metropolitan at the 9, was beautiful. The reception was on the rooftop at sunset (a photographer's dream!). But I think my favorite park was when Chloe danced with her father for the first time as a new bride. There wasn't a single dry eye in the room.  This wedding was one of the most, if not the most, emotional wedding I've photographed to date. They shared laughs. They shared tears. It was the perfect mix of emotions the covered the entire feeling spectrum. 

BEAUTIFUL MANSION WEDDING | MEGAN & JIMMY

BEAUTIFUL MANSION WEDDING | MEGAN & JIMMY

On Friday June 19th I had the wonderful honor of second shooting a wedding for Shelby Gill at Henn Mansion. She went to high school with the bride and was so passionate about capturing their day. She made the whole experience so much fun. I had never second shot before and it made things go so much smoother. I was able to take candid shots in between and around her posed photos. I had a great time and it was nice to play the background as she took the lead. Thanks again Shelb!

RADIANT TRADITIONAL WEDDING | RACHEL & MARK

RADIANT TRADITIONAL WEDDING | RACHEL & MARK

Mark & Rachel are a truly amazing couple. After knowing them for minutes, that's very apparent. They have the most wonderful sense of humor. When they were looking for a wedding, I was recommended to them by a mutual friend. He said I was the only one they should trust with their special. No pressure! 

And honestly it wasn't any pressure. Rachel & Mark were calm throughout the whole day. They didn't get upset or yell when not one, but two people from their bridal got locked out of their cars. They saw beyond the schedule of the day. They were just happy to be about spending the rest of their lives together.  It was an incredible honor to be apart of their special day. 

COUPLES SESSION | KATE & JESSE

COUPLES SESSION | KATE & JESSE

Jesse & Kate are two of my favorite people. They are compassionate, encouraging, intelligent people and total nerds (which is always appreciated). They are actually the people who introduced me to Anna & Raquel, whose wedding I was honored to shoot! I was so happy to be able to capture some photos for their annual Christmas card.
