Every muscle in my body is sore, but that’s the sign of an amazing wedding day in my book! Samantha looked like a goddess yesterday.✨ Joy and grace suit her so well, as does her new last name. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Smith, have so much fun on your honeymoon!
Josh and I are headed to McKenzie today for Sam & Hunter’s wedding and I. Can’t. WAIT to photograph these two GORGEOUS people again!!! We had so much fun at their engagement session back in February and just know today will be twice as amazing 💗 So cheers to this wonderful couple today and always!!
Sara wrote her vows in a leather book, and carried them with her as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of her best friend. Listening to her and Lance share their own handwritten promises to each other reminded me of when Josh and I did the same, two years ago. I thought it would be difficult to write my own vows, but once I sat down to do it, the words just flowed out. I guess there is something to be said about things being easy when you find the right person. Not that marriage is easy, but I imagine it would be downright difficult with anyone else! I find so much in this image of Sara, shot on film, just before she entered the church on her wedding day. Anticipation, excitement, joy, love, peace, fulfillment. It’s all there, written across the pages of her vows and radiating from this beautiful bride about to meet her groom.
One year ago, I met this amazing group of women and they changed my life. They allowed me to be vulnerable, to share my hopes and dreams with them (even before I was ready to admit them to myself). They pushed me, encouraged me, and inspired me to be better, to reach higher. And I'm grateful to them for continuing to do that in my life! We may be spread around the country (and even the world), but a piece of my heart is with them. If you are looking to be inspired, encouraged, and just all-around impressed by their art and who they are as women, give each of these beautiful ladies a follow. You won't regret it! ❤️
How in the W O R L D am I supposed to select a preview from Samantha & Jeremy's gorgeous farm wedding this weekend?! (If anyone has gotten this down to a science, I'd love to know your secret.) Anyway, these two are solid gold & their day was pure MAGIC✨ I can't believe I actually call this work!!
