We met at His Thousand Hills – it holds a special place in their lives!!

Remember – I LOVE reflections!! This was PERFECTION!!

Jeff & Sherry strive to place Jesus at the center of their lives & relationship – so this shot was SO BEAUTIFUL!

Jeff & Sherry wanted to REALLY get in the spirit for their Christmas cards this year – so Santa made a little visit!!

Jeff & Sherry – thank you SO MUCH for spending the evening with me! I had a GREAT time!!

Sherry messaged me hoping to set a date for pictures for her & her husband in the fall! She got the perfect date in mid-October!

Don’t forget that the two of you are still worth photographing!! Don’t forget that it all started with YOUR connection & love!!

When your kids are out of the house with families of their own – I think it’s even MORE important to focus on what’s keeping you together!!

BEAUTIFUL!!

You KNOW I love a great silhouette!!

Have fun together! Laugh together! Celebrate together!!

GORGEOUS!!

I LOVE her smile!!

If you haven’t figured it out by now – I LOVE reflections!!

Carrie – the events of this year have been stressful – to say the least!

While I am so sad that you had to reschedule your original BIG celebration – I am so thankful that it worked out to be there for you on your wedding day!!

Thank you SO MUCH for asking me to spend the afternoon with you!!

That might be my favorite shot from Mara!!

I go to Lodi Point to look for lake glass. But people also hunt for the smooth rocks – especially the ones with holes in them – how do they get there!?

It’s considered lucky to find them – so we HAD to get a picture!!

Skipping rocks after your wedding!? YES PLEASE!!

A few sweet moments between Carrie & her dad!!

So thankful that Mara was able to get a different perspective!!

One more post of Rich & Carrie!!

There are SO MANY reasons you should have 2 photographers at your wedding!!

Last March – right before the world turned completely upside-down – I met Carrie at a BRIDAL EXPO at Logan Ridge!!

She said – I just set my date – October 17th! Are you available!?

Sadly – I was not. But then everything changed. My bride for October 17th changed her wedding to October 16th of 2021.

I reached out to Carrie – but she had also changed her date to October 16th of 2021.

Then – I got a message at the end of September from Carrie! She asked if I was available on October 17th of this year after all!

They decided to have a small ceremony at her favorite place – Lodi Point (which also happens to be MY favorite place)!!

I changed my schedule around a little bit and was able to make it work!!

Do you remember when Mara used to come with me to weddings and take some shots!? She came with me to Carrie’s wedding and grabbed this shot – along with many other great ones!

Any photos you see without the db next to barden photography are shots Mara took!!

I very rarely get the chance to be so up close & personal during a ceremony – it was AMAZING!!

Heather messaged me asking about scheduling a fall session! I was booked – completely and utterly booked. Several sessions a day. Sunrise sessions & evening sessions. Every single night was taken.

I told her who I recommended – but she said – WE WANT TO WAIT FOR YOU!!

I had a last minute cancellation and asked her if she wanted it – she did!!

I met Heather at the pool a few summers ago and we know lots of the same people. I was SO excited to get them in front of my lens!!

I LOVE THESE PHOTOS!!!

BUT – I had a last minute cancellation and asked her if she
