Our first face to face meeting wasn’t far from the wedding date. They walked into the coffee shop (cute as could be) and I knew immediately…they were my people. Nick with his dry sense of humor and Madison in a mild ball of stress ready to lay out the plan (so much like me if I may add). They were sweet & funny & put full trust in my ideas & hopes for their day. Sighs of relief were had by all as we sunk into the perfection the day would hold & me assuring them that I would take care of anything they needed. I knew the day would be special & I wasn’t wrong. Fast forward to the morning of as I packed my gear & felt the wedding day jitters. I’ve been doing this for 6 years…why do those still exist? My second shooter & I walk into the hotel room and the air is calm. All the girls ready & the bride waiting patiently for our arrival. If I could, I would post every photo from this wedding. It was just that beautiful. But I’m gonna go ahead and give you only a little taste so I can share more later. Also because I have a crap ton of other things I need to edit so my clients don’t hate me.
At most weddings, people are happy for the bride & groom...at least every wedding I've been to. But this wedding they weren't just happy. They were invested, emotional, real, joyful, proud & downright celebratory. There was a different air about the loved ones that gathered around this beautiful couple several weeks back. They were "in" with them. I feel like I was a part of something extra special with these two. I hope to keep them not just as clients but as friends. No actually, I think I will force them to be. They are just that cool.
Also...they had snow as their reception exit. I surely can't leave that detail out.
"No words can describe our wedding day as we commited our lives to each other in front of our family & friends. We woudn't change a single moment of that day. Our biggest surprise was stepping back & realizing how dearly we are loved & supported by those around us. We are already loving what God has in store for us. Here's to the great gift of marriage" -David & Kayla
These two GORGEOUS gals gave me the honor of taking their "senior" photos. I wish more people would do these types of sessions with their friends. They graduate nursing school this year & wanted some photos to mark this moment in time. Yeah...I wasn't sad about it. Take a look at these beauties.
