There is something about a wedding that makes my heart beat fast; at first I wasn't sure if it was the gorgeous gowns or the amazing florals, the rustic and elegant styles that differed between each one, or the amazing little details that the couples had put in each of their special day. Although all of those things matter, I realized that it wasn't any of them. Its your story. The story of your love. How it happened -- from the first time your eyes met, the first date, when you knew your fiancé was the one, to the proposal. Each of my clients story is unique and beautiful, and that is why I love what I do. I am truly blessed to have the honor of capturing the pure, raw love that each of my clients share.
Married in 1950, they have been husband and wife for sixty six years. SIXTY SIX. At the ages of nineteen and seventeen these two hearts promised forever. They are holding a picture of day one in year sixty six. This is where it all began.
Back when I was a little, little girl, my sister and I would stay with my Granny & Poppa during school breaks. It was such a treat and something that we looked forward to before every visit. My sister and I would stay in the back bedroom that is at the end of a skinny L-shaped hallway. The hallway walls are adorned with family portraits, photos of momentous occasions, our family history, and where it all began. I remember the four of us squished in the narrow hall admiring these framed memories. The happiness and joy that these portraits bring spark the remembrance of a joke, funny story, and a much simpler time.
As a granddaughter, listening to my Granny & Poppa tell stories, watching these memories come to life in their eyes. This is why I do what I do. This is why I am a photographer. Not everyone has the closest family, or has a Granny & Poppa like mine. But to be able to capture these sweet moments allow these cherished memories to turn into stories told. Even if you have heard them a thousand times.
My goal as a wedding photographer is to document these moments, the moments where you two are yourselves. soaking in this exciting season of life. Knowing that one day, your granddaughter will ask about this portrait from your wedding day, your eyes will fill with joy as you begin to tell the story. The story of where you both started.
Most days you can find me coffee in hand ready to take on the day. I love adventuring!! Fishing, camping, hiking, traveling, you name it -- I probably love it! These are little snippets of my everyday life. I love Jesus! Coffee is LIFE!!! My boyfriend, John, is my most favorite person in the history of ever and he is my best friend. Roper was my border collie. Sadly we had to put him down right after Christmas 2015. He was 5 years old and those five years were some of the happiest years of my life!! My favorite western movie is the Lonesome Dove series -- the original, not the sequel. As far as I am concerned, after Robert Duvall's character dies, its just not worth continuing to the next series. I love/hate working out.....but doesn't everyone?! Some day I dream of opening up a boutique bakery catering to gluten free goodness!!
Photography takes an instant out of time,
altering life by holding it still.
