Pretty little Bower. Walking into this home was a photographer’s dream! The ridiculous amount of windows, large, clean, open walls. It was a heaven with a heavenly little gal that has the prettiest little features. Can’t wait to watch her grow.
Ahhhh! This session was exactly what my soul needed. Nature. Laughter. A gorgeous sunset and hauling ass up the mounting trying to catch it. I think my favorite part of this shoot was that Franki was barefoot the entire time. That’s a first for one of my shoots. Aren’t most girls trying to pick the perfect heels to go with their outfit? Not this girl, folks. One of the many down-to-earth reasons she is a keeper. Rock climbing barefoot-check. Unique, personal engagement photos-check.
This was such a sweet wedding. The precious couple and their families, making things official. This wedding was stripped down to the goodness of it all. It allowed for so many intimate moments that might otherwise have been missed.
And the whole family was just so kind.
After spending (sometimes 8+) hours with them on one of the most important days of their lives, the tears between Mom and her baby girl standing in a white gown, being the only other person in the room with the bride and the groom the first time they see each other on their wedding day, standing close enough to hear them recite their vows while the guests in the back can only hear the minister, that’s big stuff people and I can’t help but feel a connection with these lovely couples that invite me to be a part of these moments. I somewhat got off on a tangent there, but what I’m really trying to say is I love when the family extends themselves to me, allowing me to truly celebrate with them.
This was just a really wonderful union of two great families and I was so happy to be a part of it.
I loved everything about Bear + Allyson’s wedding. Ally has such an elegant style that was carried out from her hair to her dress to the decor. These two are a fantastic couple with wonderful families. I love it when Matt and I enjoy ourselves so much while shooting a wedding that we’re talking about it for days later.
