So we meet again!
We have had the pleasure to shoot this group of friends a few times now. It is so much fun seeing everyone year after year. Lexi and James you both are so sweet and the love you have for each other is amazing. I remember when we first met for engagement photos we got the golf cart stuck in the sand and we had to push it out trusting Lexi wouldn't roll it on the hill. Poor James was probably thinking who are these crazy art people and then to top it off at the end of the shoot we made him take his boots off to walk in the river with you. Let me tell you Lexi this is a man that will do anything for you he loves you so much and James I can know she loves you just the same.
Congratulations you guys and cant wait for next years frienaversary when Danielle and Matt get Married !
What an awesome wedding!
There were so many special moments and so so many funny ones to. The first time I cried this day was when Derek's parents gave Jenny a ring his dad got his mom for their 20th anniversary, as her something blue. It was so special it made my heart sing! After we got all the mushy gushy stuff out of the way we made sure to whoop it up for the rest of the day. These two were so funny between their playfulness with each other to their bridal party it was a blast all day.
Congratulations Jenny and Derek it was amazing to spend your wedding day with you.
Every once in a while one of my former brides calls with the most amazing news, a baby!
I loved reuniting with our old friends to celebrate the next step of their married lives. Matt and Vanessa you, two are incredible and it was so heart warming to see that deep love you have for one another just as I remember from your wedding day. Congratulations and I cant wait to meet your little one.
Erica and Josh are Amazing!
This was our first wedding of the year and I was so excited I could early sleep the night before. We quickly grabbed our gear and went to the room where I thought the girls were getting ready. I walked in and started talking to everyone and quickly realized I have only met Erica and Josh and there was a high possibility that we were hanging out with the wrong wedding haha. I didn't see Erica quite yet but lucky her mom started introducing me to family and my fears were taken away when I finally saw her in the corner getting her makeup done. (Note to self, find bride first then start meeting people) .
The rest of the day went so smooth. The weather was cold but not rainy and that was just fine with us. I think one of my favorite parts of the wedding was this huge camper van came to pick up the wedding party. They called it the Mallard and it looked like it had been though ….. lets just say a lot of adventuring with this group.
Congratulations you guys we loved spending the day with your friends and family everyone is so proud and happy for you both to have tied the knot.
Holy cow was that cold!
Katie and Trent booked us last week and said they wanted snow. Well they got it along with -14 degree weather brrrr. You guys were incredible pretending the cold was tolerable. What you dont see is ben in his carhartts and me bundled up from head to toe. At least their 2 German shepherds loved it. They were bouncing around the entire yard playing and running only to settle down for a few photos to get some treats.
Congratulations Katie and Trent we cant wait for your wedding hopefully it will be 64 degrees warmer.
The love was strong with these ones! We have been looking forward to this wedding for years and it finally came. Bruce and Courtney you guys are so sweet and it was an absolute pleasure being with you on your wedding day. We have so many favorite parts I don't know where to start. Between surprising you with vampire teeth to rummaging through all the vintage McDonalds toys in the kids area it was an absolute blast. Congratulations !!!
What a fun night we had and my gosh were we lucky with the weather it is so hard to believe this was only last week with it being so cold and rainy lately. Thank you for coming out to our home and bringing your little fur baby. It was so much fun seeing the two of you together playing and joking around. Its heartwarming to see such a true love.
Joey and Elizabeth your wedding was the most laid back I think we have ever been a part of it was so fun. I think one of my favorite parts was when Joey was getting super nervous at the alter and her officiant/Best friend had his head in the game and got the DJ to play “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake. Joey and him started club dancing it was so funny. Your silliness and love that we saw showed just how wonderful of a couple you are. We wish you all the love and happiness thank you for sharing your beautiful wedding day with us.
Where do I start…… This day was fun!
It was a beautiful day with amazing people we had a blast getting to know family and friends. It was so funny to see how excited the groomsmen got when I told them to go and get their guns for our group photo….. don't worry mom we got some without the guns but dang if it didn't get those boys excited for photos.
Taylor and Jayme are such a sweet couple it was so fun watching Taylor be in aww or Jayme walking down the aisle. We truly saw love.
Last week we drove to Napoleon and met up with this sweet couple. It was so fun walking around the farm and meeting all the super cute farm animals. I loved including Krista’s beautiful horse in their engagement photos. He played a special part in Michaels proposal. When they told me their engagement story it gave me goose bumps with how thoughtful Michael was to include her horse Kenny.
We have the pleasure of documenting weddings all over the Midwest. This blog is a fun sneak peek for those brides and grooms.
