Candace Bridals

02 October 2012
I am so excited to finally post these bridals.  This will be another long post as I could not narrow down my favorites.  Candace is so beautiful... but I think that goes without saying as you look at these images.  I kind of already gushed about Candace earlier on my blog for her engagement session that can be found here.  I love Candace to no end and I have been truly honored to photograph her wedding.  Thanks again for letting me be part of your special day... Wedding photos soon to follow. :)

Jorden Bridals

I don't think you will ever find someone as sweet and kind as Jorden.  I have truly loved having the opportunity to work with her for her wedding.  Beside being a lot of fun to interact with while on the shoot, she made things entirely too easy for me as a photographer... This girl seriously does not take a bad photo.  She is absolutely stunning and I think that the soft romantic feel at Memory Grove was perfect for her style.  Thanks again Jorden! I can't wait to share your wedding photos with you. I seem to always have the same problem with your sessions... I love way too many of them and your wedding is turning out the same way. :)  Enjoy!

Willard Family

12 September 2012
I love love love this family so much! I have know Cyd and Drew FOREVER (like since elementary and junior high) and I am grateful to call Cydney one of my very best friends.  She is such a kind, strong person and besides that she is freakin funny!  Anyway, it is always so much fun to take photos of friends and their kiddos.  I always end up gabbing and laughing through the whole session.  This particular little family was no different and, besides a minor crash by the studly little Wes, the session went completely amazing.  How could it go any other way with people that are this happy and gorgeous?  Thanks again for letting me take your families photos and happy birthday to Wesley... the big 1 already! (holy cow Cyd, I can't believe we are moms with 1 year olds!)  Love you guys!

Hey Jude! I was so excited when my old friend Taren asked me to take her son's 3 year pictures.  Taren is an amazing artist herself and when she came to me with the idea of having Jude paint during the photo shoot I couldn't have been more excited! Since I was also an art major, this was right up my alley! Along with my own bias toward this particular shoot, I also just love incorporating a child's personality into their session.  It is so much easier to show their true smiles and individual mannerisms in their photos.  Jude was a rock star during this shoot and it was so much fun to be a part of. 

We started the session off all clean with Jude showing off his baseball skills and general coolness before we moved on to bubbles and finally to painting...
Jude's talented mom made this awesome painting.
I loved this kids style! Seriously making me want a little guy....
Jude's baseball skills came in handy when making bubbles. 
I always find the most amazing light in this field.  Love, love, love shooting here.
And here he is with his finished work! :)
