Oh, one of my favorite weddings!¬† Kristina and Jeremy were so much fun and their little boy was so cute–I just wanted to pinch his little cheeks ūüôā¬† He kept me laughing for sure when we were taking family photos after the ceremony.¬† Kristina wanted something very understated when it came to the decorations so we decided on the Bamboo Beach, with champagne colored sashes.¬† It was so elegant.¬† And the perfect pop of color came from her bouquet and the peachy pink dresses the bridesmaids wore.¬† They were all such beautiful girls…and the groomsmen weren’t too bad either!¬† They played along when I did the photo of all of them gazing in wonder at Jeremy’s wedding ring…everyone was cracking up with laughter after I took that one!¬† Hope you enjoy and congrats again to Kristina and Jeremy Timmerman!


Kelli and Michael’s August 8th wedding was certainly colorful!¬† But I loved the tropical feeling of it–and although I was a first a little hesitant about the color combination, I do think the turquoise and deep purple were actually quite lovely together!¬† And Kelli’s dress was a first for me—the entire full skirt could be removed, leaving behind a knee-length sheath dress…how cool is that?¬† It took all of like 30 seconds to remove the skirt and then we were able to take photos that were a little more casual.¬† So cute!¬† Anyway, hope you enjoy this sweet couple’s wedding photos!


I love how the Seashell Sweet Garland looks like jewelry!

Have you ever had the opportunity to be part of something that was so absolutely perfect that you just wanted to jump up and down in glee?¬† Well, that was me at Karleigh’s and Kyle’s wedding on July 17th.¬† I mean, come on–the couple was just gorgeous, the beach was stunning and the light, well, the light that day was absolute perfection.¬† And oh my gosh–have you seen a more beautiful fishtail braid than the one Karleigh is showing off?¬† It was just lovely.

It was sooooo easy to take this sweet couple’s photos…can’t you just feel the sweetness coming through the screen????¬† Not to mention their use of our black sashes with the tiki torches which created such an elegant feel for such a simple little package.¬† It really proves that less is more and sometimes, the best course is to let the natural beauty of the bride and groom and the beach itself shine through.¬† Hope you enjoy and congrats again to Karleigh and Kyle!

Kyle and his mom. She didn’t look old enough to have a son his age either!

I cannot believe it is 2015 already.  Boy, did 2014 just fly by!  I met so many sweet couples this year, not to mention their lovely families!  And got to reconnect with one of my favorite couples that we married five years ago so I could do their summer vacation photos (loved seeing you guys again, Mike and Michele Caskey!  And those kids of yours made my summer so much brighter!)

Now,¬†most everyone will make¬†some type of¬† New Year’s Resolution and I really only have one this year—To Breathe. Which for me means to slow down a little and enjoy life more, to say “I love you” more, to laugh more,¬†and not stress out¬†so much (hard¬†not to do when I’m looking at rainclouds on a bride’s wedding day!) And I mean to¬†do it too–to take the time to enjoy all of God’s gifts and to be thankful.

In keeping with such a simple concept,¬†here is an elopement we did back¬†on July 15th.¬† Our¬†couple, Kimberly and Jeff¬†decided to elope—just the two of them.¬† By themselves…with no one else.¬† It was simple and sweet and meaningful.¬† It was one of my favorite weddings of the year and these two were so¬†in¬†love, I think most of the time they forgot the officiant and I were even there!¬† So enjoy the simplistic, elegant elopement¬†Kimberly and Jeff decided was the right choice for them…and yes, it was cloudy and had rained earlier but the light was beautiful for the ceremony and the photos!¬†

Robert and Samantha’s wedding was on July 14th and this couple was so sweet they just had me smiling the whole time!¬† With a military feel and the necessary navy blue color scheme, it was my pleasure to be a part of it and to be able to give my thanks for Robert’s service to our country!¬† And Samantha was a beautiful bride who was glowing with happiness!¬† Congrats to these two!
