Danneka + Alex, backyard wedding

I don’t know what my favorite part of the wedding day is…the cake? the couple? the dancing? All good things, but I think my favorite part is being able to capture the love and happiness two people share for one another and how, along with their family and friends, they have the most amazing day.

You may remember Alex and Danneka’s engagement session. If not, go back and take a look. I had so much fun at the engagement session and the wedding day was no different. That’s a lie. It was way different because we got to capture the love and enjoyment from their family and friend’s as well. These two lovebirds got married out at Danneka’s family farm, can you say amazing blueberry fields? After a hint of rain, nothing was going to dampen our spirits, the sun came out, the guests arrived and we capture the fun and excitement. There was giant Jenga on the patio, bean bag toss on the lawn and even a giant Bananagrams game going on. So much fun, and it was an absolute blast to capture these memories for such an amazing couple.

Don’t take my word for it, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!

Jess + Andy, engagement album

I think the title speaks for itself here. Today I’m showing off Jess and Andy’s engagement album. Our signature 8×8 layflat album features plenty of white space so our clients can use the album as a guestbook at the wedding. I love, seriously love, seeing what the guests write in them. Some stories are really funny and hilarious, while others write something truly touching. I’m not going to write a ton here, but take a look at the album.

Z’s birthday photoshoot

Or, as I like to call it, the many faces of Zoe. ;)

I can’t believe how fast the last three years have gone by. Three! 3?! My darling, mischievous, and sometimes horrible little love is three. We had an impromptu photoshoot in the kitchen, mostly where she showed off her pink nails (oh yes that is her favorite color) and she kept making the silliest faces. These are the moments that will be forever ingrained in my mind. These are the moments I want to capture for others. This smile gets me every time, it can be so sweet and then moments later she’ll give you the evil eye, and she is pretty good at that.

Enjoy! And know that I’ve got more to come, lots and lots more, but I’ve been in a bit of a funk and I’m working on clawing my way out.
