I am so glad you're here! This is my little corner where I get to share some of my most favorite images from engagements, weddings, births, my travels and my own little family from time to time. Hang out, look around, and please reach out to say hello!
I have been looking forward to this wedding since the moment we first met about their wedding. These two are some of the most wonderful, kind and loving people you will ever meet and my only regret is that we don’t live closer together! But getting to spend their entire wedding day with them was the next best thing.
They were both so calm and excited and there wasn’t an ounce of nerves in either of them! But, when we looked around at all of their friends and family, there was nothing but joy and excitement for the day ahead. I tell my brides all the time that as soon as they wake up on their wedding day, I just want them to choose to let everything go and to enjoy it! Because by the time they wake up that morning, all of the planning is done and if something doesn’t happen or go quite as planned, no one is going to know but them. So how better to enjoy the day than to begin it by letting everything go?? And Cami did JUST that and had a smile on her face the entire day.
Cami and Topher are both from big families and I loved it! Cami is one of 10 kids and Topher is not just a triplet but he also has an older brother and a younger sister. So when I say this was a family affair, it truly was! Cami’s older brother is Topher’s best friend, so he was the best man. And Cami’s older sister is her best friend so she was the maid of honor. And when these two gave their toasts at the reception, it was so obvious just how much they are loved and adored and how well God created them for each other.
Thank you guys for including me and Anna in your festivities and for allowing us to capture your day! It was beautiful! I hope you guys are enjoying your time out west. When you get home, I hope you enjoy reliving your day through some of my favorite photos from your wedding!
Apparently, Topher is quite the craftsman because he made this box for the ring bearer (Cami’s youngest brother) to carry down the aisle!
How fun are those navy blue cufflinks??
How beautiful was her hair?!?
Cami and Topher both play the piano, so when I found that out, we were able to incorporate this grand piano into their day!
Oh, Cami! So beautiful!
The best part of a First Look isn’t about the timeline or getting most of the photos taken before the ceremony…
The best part is seeing a couple come together in excitement and awe because this is THEIR day to become one and they get to express that joy through hugs and kisses and checking out each other’s wedding attire!
I LOVE these. Mine is on the left, Anna’s is on the right.
You guys just don’t understand how fun and wonderful this wedding party was!
This might be my new favorite groomsman shot!
When we got back to the church, we did family portraits and then still had time to get some fun photos of these guys at the piano.
Not to mention we all got serenaded by Topher’s talent!
Also, new favorite ring shot. Thanks for suggesting ring photos on the keys, Cami!
And then it was time…
Oh my goodness, I love how she’s looking at her daddy before she sets her eyes on her groom! #allthehappytears
And they’re married!!
The most beautiful part of the day (aside from Cami, of course!) was how much these two trusted me.
We were able to get a handful of photos at the church after guests left, but I’d also found a spot where they did their First Look that we didn’t have time to get to before the ceremony. So instead of spending all of our extra time at the church like we’d originally planned, they willingly followed me back to the park and down a desolate trail… And I hope they agree that it was worth it!
Their reception was held at the lovely Rose Lawn Museum that had so much character and portrait locations that I think I was actually overwhelmed by it all!
I’m so glad these two have a kissing photo at their cake because it can now go in a frame with the ones from their parents’ weddings!
See the table below :-)
We truly could have taken portraits around this property forever!
When Cami found her dress online, it didn’t have a sash or a bustle. So she, her mom and sister MADE all of that.
It was the most flowy and beautiful bustle I’ve ever seen too!
Oh you guys. I just love this.
Please note just how high she jumped to catch the bouquet!!
And really… be still my heart!
The best part of this departure was the surprise Topher’s brother had for him…
Rice being shot from a potato gun!
Cami & Topher’s wedding was a result of a lot of their own work as well as the volunteer work of many friends. Many thanks to everyone who had a hand in this day and the talented team of vendors that helped make the day so beautiful!
