Nathaniel & Sarah | Wedding

Well, well, here's an overdue post. :-) Nothing like a freezing cold day in January to post pictures from one of the hottest days of the year! Nathaniel & Sarah's wedding day was in the 90's, but everyone was a trooper and it was such a lovely wedding. 2016 was a very light wedding year for me, but I'm glad this was one of the few that I did shoot. :-)

So many thanks to Wendy for second shooting with me and keeping me hydrated!















































































































Scott & Jaclyn | Wedding

Shooting a dear friend's wedding is such a fun experience. I'm always happy to just attend friends' weddings but there is something special about getting to spend the whole day with them, in all the biggest moments of the wedding day. Though I haven't known Jaclyn as long as some of my other friends, we've grown pretty close in the last few years and it was a very special privilege to photograph a day for which we had been praying so much!

It was a gorgeous November day and such fun seeing all the literary details incorporated into the decor!

Thanks to Joanna Kay Photography for helping me out with this wedding!!

Levi & Emily | Wedding

Ohhhh, this wedding! It makes my heart skip a beat just thinking about it. If you've been around my blog for a while you'll recognize the groom; I have shot his family's photos for several years. They always knock it out of the park for the family shoot, so when Levi asked me to shoot his wedding, ecstatic would be a good word for how I was feeling. :-)

They recently moved and the wedding was held outside at their beautiful property. This day was absolutely gorgeous in every way, from start to finish! I'm so excited to share it with you today. Levi & Emily, thank you so much for the privilege of documenting your wedding... it's a favorite. I hope you're up for lots of scrolling - photo overload ahead!

Special thanks to Wendy and John-Luke for shooting this wedding with me!

Such a stunning antique ring!


I just really like it when there are antique silver trays laying around.












































So, Levi had this mustache... and he decided he wanted some pictures with it, and some without.

We made the most of it.



The verdict... ;-)















First look with dad!











Such a beautiful bride!!










Can we talk about this arch for a minute?!
This is how it's done, people.


















This was one crazy set of groomsmen. :-)









That shot on the left was the first thing I snapped when we started these portraits.
The moment when they were saying, "We don't know what we're doing."
Lies.


See what I mean? Models.










Ohhh, this light!!! Swoon-worthy.




























































It's always my favorite when Grandma gets on the dancefloor.

Out for a few more portraits at sunset...
