They said "I Do" Again

While Stephanie and Mike were already married, they decided to do it again.

An intimate setting with their closest friends and family to support them.

It was originally planned as an outdoor spring wedding but mother nature had another idea. Rain.
So, she moved it inside to where here reception was and it was beautiful.

She handled the changes and stresses very well. Nothing was gonna get her down on this special day.

As an added bonus to me, she bought a custom made birdcage veil and fascinator from me..She looked amazing!
She has a beautiful family of her own.

And they are excited to be welcoming another addition this year!

Hopefully we will get in a maternity shoot later and then a newborn shoot to follow :) Here is a sneak peak to the next wedding:

Weddings..Beautiful! The Bride, Groom and Let's Not Forget the Rings!

Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. But will the girl say "YES?" They are headed down that road to marriage. It starts out with a very big step. The question, "Will you marry me?" presented with a ring. Now, no matter how its done, there is always that unique and quirky story that the bride to be will tell the rest of her life. The size of the diamond doesn't matter or how much was spent. What matters is the thought and courage surrounding it.

And with these rings, would be hard to say NO lol...

On THE day, another ring is given, both to bride and groom. The ring is a circle. An endless and timeless symbol of everlasting love.  With open communication, trust and love..not to mention the balance of laughter and will stay on that road of everlasting love!
I want to be that old couple that still holds hands that the younger generations oohing and awing about. How bout you? Tell me your story! I shall share my engagement story with pictures in the near future! I may even turn this into a bit of a contest with the story sharing!

Spring is Here!

It looks as though spring has finally arrived. Nights are still a bit chilly but the days are nice overall. Where I live the wind is a bit unbearable most days but the sun is shining beautifully. So, what does this mean? It means that I get lots of photo time!

Wedding season is in full bloom as well as those lovely flowers. Cherry blossoms are a favorite by most, especially in spring. They are a popular flower among photographers. They add a soft color with lines of contrast with all the branches and blooms. Then, when you add in the bright blue sky...its just breathtaking. I took these during a meeting with my April Bride.

I have an April wedding and 2 in May so far. Here are my brides and grooms to be:
Dusty and Stacie (family)

Katie and Rick (referred by Stacie)
Mike and Stephanie
 (referred from the person who made my wedding cake)
There are still dates available in April and May and so far the summer and fall dates are wide open. Please contact me for pricing and details.
