12 years ago, I got on one knee hoping she'd say yes. Today, we're getting ready to welcome our second child into the world! This superhero bombshell (aka @sweetlifephoto.anna the love of my life!) is 37 weeks, our #rainbowpregnancy. We're on the edge of our seat, nearly ready to meet Baby Boy Tenney no. 2! I have so much respect for this woman and the hard work she's done to give life to our children.⠀ .⠀ I was brought to absolute tears recently by a song on the radio. I was alone, driving to a wedding, and this song came on and spoke straight to my soul as I thought about my family, and my children, and our future generations. I felt the Lord's presence as these lyrics boomed over me in the car that day:⠀ .⠀ May His favor be upon you⠀ And a thousand generations⠀ Your family and your children⠀ And their children, and their children⠀ ⠀ May His presence go before you⠀ And behind you, and beside you⠀ All around you, and within you⠀ He is with you, He is with you⠀ ⠀ In the morning, in the evening⠀ In your coming, and your going⠀ In your weeping, and rejoicing⠀ He is for you, He is for you⠀ He is for you, He is for you⠀ He is for you, He is for you⠀ He is for you, He is for you⠀ ⠀ Amen, amen, amen⠀ Amen, amen, amen⠀ .⠀ Friends, 2020 has been quite a year. It feels kind of strange to bring a child into the world in today's climate, in the middle of a pandemic, right before a contentious election, with so much hatred and pain and anger swirling around us. Life's big moments have a way of putting things in perspective though, so can I just say to you real quick: whoever you are, whatever you believe, however you'll vote, this little family of mine is for you, because we believe God is for you, and we wish you peace. May His favor be upon you, and a thousand generations, your family and your children, and their children, and their children.
The DMs agree: she chose the perfect dress! Lindsay & Chris had to postpone their larger reception to 2021, but they chose to still have an intimate #minimony this year. And thennnn the wildfires happened and the air quality deteriorated (we were evacuated from our home ourselves!), so they had to replan and move their ceremony once again (3rd time!). But if we've all learned anything this year, it’s that nothing can stop true love. What a joy to be part of this sweet, unrelenting love story! Lindsay & Chris, we can't wait to celebrate with you again in 2021 ☺️⠀ .⠀ @patriciadanilsondesigns⠀ @thebensonhotel @revolve @fujifilm_profilm⠀ @thefindlab
Our bride, Alysia, giving you every reason you'd ever need to get yo'self a @girlandaseriousdream morning outfit for your wedding day! . Seeing this photo, you don't have to know Alysia personally to know this was very likely the happiest day of her life! Artistry in wedding photography, we've come to learn, is less about the technical workings of a camera and more about the relationships we build and the comfort level we achieve with our clients. Those are the things that invite genuine emotion to shine through a photo to such a great extent that it can be felt by a total stranger. One of our favorite things we often hear from new clients is that they FELT something when they found our work, and it stood out to them. That, friends, is what we're after. Not just pretty images, but images with genuine, once-in-a-lifetime emotion beautifully and artfully preserved. . @j29events @ckennedybeauty @hairbykaybcay @theperfectoccasion @inbaldrorofficial @girlandaseriousdream @fujifilm_profilm @thefindlab
Those Christmas cards are coming up fast - no more procrastinating! 😉 Loved this day with the adorable (and rowdy haha) Honeycutt family on the Oregon coast recently. . We only have a few dates remaining this fall for family sessions! Baby Boy Tenney no. 2 is due early Nov (eek!) and we'll be taking a bit of time off from shooting once he's here. Get in touch if you'd like a session in the next couple of weeks! . Film: shot on @fujifilm_profilm and processed by @thefindlab
Relaxed sunset portrait vibes. You’re finally husband and wife. A drink (or two) already enjoyed. All that remains is celebration without formalities. You can just sink in to each other and allow your relationship to come to the surface. Sunset portraits are easily the sweetest photos of the day ☺️⠀ .⠀ @j29events⠀ @ckennedybeauty⠀ @hairbykaybcay⠀ @theperfectoccasion⠀ @inbaldrorofficial⠀ @fujifilm_profilm⠀ @thefindlab
Built-up, beautiful, and inspiring 💛 Alysia & Austin did such a great job assembling a top-notch vendor team that made their wedding day one for the record books! . @j29events @ckennedybeauty @hairbykaybcay @theperfectoccasion @inbaldrorofficial @girlandaseriousdream @amsalebridesmaids @minted @condons_culinary @greatjonesnw @actionrentallandevents @fujifilm_profilm @thefindlab
