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!
She was a little nervous about the day, but unless I had asked how she was doing, I would never had known that the nerves were getting to her. But they were those excited nerves… the ones that you get when you’ve been anticipating something for so long that you can hardly believe that it’s time. And once she put her dress on and I asked if she was ready to go and see her groom, she flashed her amazing smile and followed me out the door. Watching Katie and David is like putting that last piece of a puzzle into it’s spot. It fits so perfectly and you wonder how you didn’t find it before. I kept telling them how adorable they were together and they would laugh and give me their brilliant smiles, but it was the moments when they forgot anyone else was around that you could see – without a doubt – just how much they adore each other. This was their day. It had finally arrived. And they soaked in every.single.moment. Not even the rain during their reception could take the smiles off their faces! They were just thrilled to finally be husband and wife and to be celebrating with family and friends. Katie and David, thank you both SO much for allowing me into your lives. It has been so much fun getting to know you both and I know that the Lord is going to use you in ways you could never imagined. I’m so thankful He brought you guys back together and that you don’t have to weeks before seeing each other anymore! I know you’re having a blast in Cancun… just promise me that you’ll soak up a few extra rays of sun for me! Huge shout out to Christy Mason for second shooting with me!
This is definitely the cutest (and oldest!) church I’ve ever shot a wedding in. Look at that date!
I’m so thankful for brides that trust me… after she put her dress on, Katie came into the sanctuary for her mom to button up her dress and to finish her preparations because the light coming in from the side doors was AMAZING. Don’t worry though, Christy stood guard outside to make sure David didn’t wander past!
Oh my goodness, these bouquets were to die for…
I love it when couples opt to see each other before the ceremony… especially on days like this day because we were able to get ALL but photos with grandparents taken before they said I Do, which meant they were able to get to their reception not long after their guests AND we were able to avoid the rain!
Of all the photos we took that day, THIS ONE is them. 100% them!
Succulents in the bouquet and monograms on his cuffs. Those two things alone are enough to make this photographer swoon!
Ah! I love this one!
I think this was just after I reminded them of how adorable they are :-)
Christy caught this one!!
Katie gave the girls a color and they picked out their own dresses. One of the girls even had hers from a previous wedding… so she really did get to wear it again!
Girls, y’all are just beautiful!
Oh my heavens… I about died of cuteness when I came across this one of the ring bearer!
And then it was time…
This may have been my most favorite moment of the day!! Her grandmother was so excited!!
The Farm at Rabon Creek is such an amazing place – a fantastic venue AND a working farm!
I loved seeing their printed engagement photos all over the place!
The majority of the flowers at the reception came from Katie’s grandmother’s garden! So beautiful!
And this cake! With succulents! Katie is a girl after my own heart…
This airstream was sitting at the farm when we arrived and I think I took 4 photos total of them in front of it. So worth it.
How many people get photos under a FULL rainbow on their wedding day?? So pretty!
And if you look closely, it was actually a double rainbow!
So thankful for everyone that made this day as wonderful as it was!
