GORGEOUS!! AND the wind died down – just in time!

STUNNING!!

I ADORE that shot!

Time to get warm by the fire!

Such a precious moment – again – so much of photography is being in the right place at the right time!

Karen – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to spend the afternoon with you!!

I wondered how Karen knew me – turns out I took her daughter’s senior photos – THIS daughter – only NINE years ago! NINE!

Waiting – impatiently waiting for the ceremony to start!

Can you see it? Can you feel it? SO MUCH EMOTION in that moment!

Time to get BUNDLED up and ready to brave the chilly weather & winds – because when you have a BEAUTIFUL view right out the door – you GO OUTSIDE & GET THE PICTURE!

SUCH A GORGEOUS FAMILY!!

I got a message from Karen on FACEBOOK – hoping that I would be available for her intimate wedding in October!

Can I confess something to you?

When I first started this business – intimate weddings were NOT what I wanted. Because successful photographers book BIG events. BIG weddings! LOTS OF HOURS! ALL THE WEDDINGS!!

Can I tell you how differently I look at them now!? Don’t get me wrong – I still love the BIG WEDDINGS – the 6 or 8 hours spending the day with you!

But I have come to really love the small weddings. The intimate ceremonies. Spending a few hours with you and the people you hold most dear on one of the most memorable days of your life!

We were really hoping to have the ceremony outside – but that WIND and the chilly temperatures kept us inside by the fire!

I dressed for the occasion – so I took a little walk with THE DRESS!

I absolutely ADORE the getting ready room at Pine Cradle Lake!!

She LOVED that dress!!

I might have a little too much fun with those reflection shots – but I JUST LOVE THE PERSPECTIVE!

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

Stay tuned for the next two installments of Karen’s BEAUTIFUL wedding day!

Remember Nate? He was my assistant at Chelsea & Patrick’s wedding!

He came with me to Tarra & Adam’s wedding last month too!

I HIGHLY recommend hiring TWO photographers for your day – I simply can’t be in two places at once!

ADORABLE! ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!

SO MUCH CAKE – EVERYWHERE!!

Nate – THANK YOU so much for coming along with me this fall! You did a GREAT job!!

The last installment!!

DO YOU SEE HIS MOM’S REACTION!?

SO MUCH SMASHING!!

It RAINED & RAINED & RAINED – heavy – but we missed it! We were dry & warm inside the barn – eating a fantastic dinner!

Make sure you kiss – A LOT – on your wedding day!

We missed sunset while the dollar dance was happening – BUT I’ve been loving that dusky feel lately!

Brides & grooms – MAKE SURE YOU DANCE ON YOUR WEDDING DAY!! LOOK AT THOSE SHOTS!!

THAT SMILE!! Isn’t he such a sweetie!

SING US A SONG – YOU’RE THE PIANO MAN – SING US A SONG TONIGHT!

Tarra & Adam – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to spend the day with you!

And THANK YOU for dancing the night away – it makes for FANTASTIC pictures!! I hope you LOVE your photos!!

Tarra let me know that their nephew is a special little guy and they wanted LOTS of photos with him!

He almost always turned that smile on when I focused on him!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

ADORABLE!

Her dad was RUNNING – making sure the wedding would start ON TIME!

One LAST hug while he’s all hers! Seriously – these mother-of-the-groom moments – I can’t hold it together!

I LOVE her reaction!

GORGEOUS!!

ADORABLE!!

That little guy was a VERY little guy the last time I took their photos!

That’s a SPECIAL bird!

Sometimes the sun isn’t in the right spot at the right time – but you can’t miss the moment!

They MIGHT look a little bit like mother & daughter!

7 years ago I met these kiddos & their parents wanted to recreate some shots from that day!

SISTERS!!

FRIENDS BECOME OUR CHOSEN FAMILY!

GIVE ME ALL THE SQUISHY BABIES!!

SQUISHY SQUISH!!

Kristi had one last thing to do before I left …

But I couldn’t keep up with her …

CUPCAKE SMASHED!!

Kristi & Patrick – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to spend the afternoon with you!

BEST SURPRISE EVER!! I can’t WAIT to spend some time with you next week for a newlywed photos session!
