Aaron & Megan | Starline Factory Wedding

Here it is - the thing that's been keeping this blog quiet the past couple weeks! Thanks for your patience, everyone! I hope it's worth the wait...

Where to begin with these two?! I've known Megan since my early teens - I still remember meeting her the first time at a mutual friend's house... we played ping-pong. Or tried to, anyway. She has such a sweet serving heart - her whole family is known for pitching in and helping whenever or wherever there's a need. We knew that when she got married we'd have to keep reminding her that this is her day and keep her from running around cleaning up and helping with decorations. :-)

I've only known Aaron for a few years, and though I don't know him as well as Megan, I certainly know they are perfect for each other. Not to mention they look cuter together than just about any couple of my current acquaintance.

Their wedding was absolutely beautiful... Megan and her sister Raeanne did an amazing job on reception centerpieces and decor, and the Starline Factory provided a fabulous setting!

It was a great honor for me to capture the memories of their special day, as they covenanted before God on a chilly January day. HUGE thanks to Laura for second shooting with me (quite a few of these pictures are hers)... you are amazing and I couldn't have done it without you! And get yourself a website, girl.
Aaron & Megan, blessings to you in your future life together... Enjoy the pictures! I think I probably went a bit overboard on this post, but I can't help it. Too hard to narrow it down. :-)

Some bling, eh?

Megan, you are so gorgeous!!

This was my first time doing a first look.
Aaron's reaction was so great... he was about to split his face open with that smile.
This is one of Laura's shots - love it!

All of that stuff above? Completely candid. Yep. Amazingness comes naturally to them.


Another fabulous angle from Laura's camera!

I looked at my LCD screen and died.
This was definitely my "score" moment of the day!

Oh yeah. Did I mention the bridal party of THIRTY-TWO?!?!

I am still laughing.

Does this look familiar? Drawn by Dawn turned one of the engagement pictures I took into this neat wood "guestbook"! Like her on Facebook!

Cutest flower girls ever.

Greatest ceremony moment - officiant is half way through "Will you, Aaron, take Megan to be your wife - " and Aaron jumps in, "I will!" without waiting for the sentence to be completed. :-)

I could have watched these two dance all night!

I had to get my picture with the bride and groom! Love this one. :-)

  1. Kathryn, Oh my gracious girl!!! I am blown away by these photos! Megan & Aaron just glowed and you captured everything perfectly. What a beautiful couple!

    I dont ever want to hear you complain about using a flash again, because you OWNED that thing! :)

    Thanks for adding some glitter to my Monday!

    love, abbe

  2. WOW what amazing pictures!!!:) That wedding must have been really fun!!!

  3. You should be careful with the pictures you post - I might change my mind and ask you to be the photographer at my wedding... ;)

    1. I'll block your account from viewing my blog until after the wedding. We can't have you changing your mind, you're stuck with me!! ;-)

  4. You don't know how excited I was to see you posted these, Kathryn! =D You did an AMAZING job, and they all turned out so beautiful!!

  5. And for everyone's information... that TALENTED gal who took these pictures is MY SISTER!!!!! You should all be jealous of me.

    You did a totally awesome job on these, Kath!! I think I've looked at this post about a dozen times already!!

    MEGAN - you are GORGEOUS!!! It was so so so wonderful seeing you as a BRIDE! Aaron - you are one lucky guy (which I'm sure you already know)!

  6. These were a.m.a.z.i.n.g. One of my favorite posts so far!! You (and Laura) did a fabulous job.

  7. Very very nice job! I must admit, I was a little worried how you were going to work with the space once the natural light was over - its so hard to shoot INSIDE in a dark room without COMPLETELY jacking the ISO.... and I'm impressed. :)

    1. Thanks, Cassie! I was worried myself... that was my first time using off-camera flash, so it was new territory for me. But I was really happy with how it worked - I'm so happy to have found a lighting system for nighttime shooting that I don't despise!

  8. This is to much Beauty for me!!! The photos and this wedding was amazing. I totally love the place they did their wedding at!

  9. Oh my, what an incredibly gorgeous wedding! You're a real natural at wedding photography, Kathryn! All the decor is beautiful and I love the donuts.

  10. *happy vibes*
