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 distinctly remember baby sitting Karen and her two younger brothers when she was in elementary school. And I remember their house pretty well too because I was over there once a week for violin lessons with her mom. Not only that, but her dad was the music minister at our church so he directed the youth choir, which I sang in (or at least tried to sing in!). So, you can say that we were around this sweet family quite a bit before I left for college! Thankfully, I’ve been able to see and catch up with Karen over the past several months, but it had been ages since I’d seen her parents. And when I saw her dad, he insisted on two hugs to make up for lost time!
No family ever goes through life without any hard times, but to look at Karen, her parents, her son and her new husband, it’s so obvious that God has been in the center of their lives for quite a while. And as Karen and Brad said their vows, they gave Him all of the honor and glory for what He has done in them individually and as a couple. It was obvious how overwhelmed they were with all of this when they had a few quiet moments during their First Look. And when I realized that they were praying as I was capturing these sweet moments, I came this close to shedding tears of my own!
Saturday may have been one of the hottest days of the year so far, but these two took everything in stride… they cared about little other than becoming husband and wife and celebrating with friends and family! You guys, THANK YOU for letting us document your day. It was such an honor and so special to me to watch you two promise to love, protect and respect each other in this new adventure! We love you guys!
Quite possibly one of the sweetest first looks I’ve ever seen…
Karen… just, wow.
Karen and Brad’s reception was held at the The Historic Springdale House & Gardens and it was stunning!
I could have photographed them there all day long!
Three generations of beautiful marriages.
So many thanks to all of these amazing vendors who made Karen & Brad’s wedding extra wonderful!
