Now that my girls are officially out of the baby stage, having the gift of spending time with newborns is well, a gift. There’s just nothing like those tiny hands and soft skin and loads of facial expressions that are all equally cute (even the crying ones). But my favorite thing to miss? The fresh out of a swaddle baby stretch, with hands held high above the head while little booties wriggle and feet curl up. Bonus points added if a yawn is thrown in too. It’s definitely one of those baby actions that can’t be pinpointed as to what day they suddenly grew out of it, but like many things – as every parent will tell you- felt like it was in a blink.

Which is why capturing those early days will always be something I feel so proud and honored to do, freezing those moments that all too soon become distant memories that you can recall on the days you need to recall that baby sweetness (read: middle school years).

Here’s one adorable little babe who most certainly gave me a baby fix – and his canine sibling made this in home session all the more sweet.

“We’ve had a couple of weeks with the wedding photos now. I still can’t find the words to thank you for what you’ve delivered to us. Before finding your work online, I was so anxious about finding a wedding photographer. I was worried about looking back at pictures and only seeing how uncomfortable I am in front of a camera. I’m amazed at how unfounded those fears ended up being.

When I look at the photos you took, I see so much. I see the big moments that everyone in the room experienced, and the quieter, more private moments that were easy to miss. I see my dad’s joy, Lucas’ family’s energy, the fun that only a dozen small children can bring to a room, and my granddad’s quiet contentment reading the words I’ve never been able to say to him. I see Lucas and I — staring at each other in disbelief in the back hallway right after our wedding ceremony, cracking jokes in the middle of that ceremony, and altogether enjoying every moment of the day. I see what may be my favorite moment of the whole wedding that I was sure no one else saw, when Lucas corralled me and politely said, “It’s time to go,” and I grabbed his suit jacket, smiled, and not-so-politely responded, “I’m not leaving!”

And there’s so much more. Every time I pull up the pictures, I see our wedding. I see exactly what was there, exactly how it was, on that day. A storm rolling through, laughs in the dressing room, my family’s struggle to pull it together for portraits, special and silly moments with the little ones. Every hug showing a personal connection, built over years, captured in a single frame. (And, so many frames! I’m amazed at how many moments you captured and gave to us.)

Anyways, all of this to say: Thank you. You’ve given us such a special gift by doing the work you do and becoming a friend in this special season of life.”

I’m not one to normally post others’ words instead of my own, but Jessica – the incredibly insightful wordsmith and the beautiful bride you’re about to see – managed to do what I’ve always had trouble doing: describe the how and why of how I approach a wedding day. One of the first emails she ever sent me said “I think I’m so drawn to your work because when I look at the pictures you’ve taken, I don’t necessarily see “weddings,” but rather real people in the moments surrounding the start of their marriages.” Which I told her may have to end up being my business tag line one day.

But really, I share her words not to brag about my work, but to state my hope for what I want to achieve at every wedding. To be able to use my gift of observing and capturing moments to give people tangible memories of their wedding day story. The real, beautiful, authentic story: captured as it happened rather than how I coerced it to be. And I’m so incredibly grateful to work with people who see the beauty – true beauty – in realness.

Now below you’ll find the wedding day story of Jessica and Lucas, two souls so in love they couldn’t stop smiling from ear to ear the entire day. Rain doesn’t matter when you’re focused on the real reason you’re having a wedding, and these love birds were the perfect role models for how to do life whether cloudy or sunny skies linger overhead. (Also, just to point out how amazing Jessica is one more time: she had the great idea for her and Lucas to handwrite personal notes to each and every guest – almost 100 of them – for them to read at the reception. If you want an idea to make sure there’s not a dry eye in the house….)

I constantly pinch myself over the fact that couples like Laura and Patrick hire me to photograph their beautiful, perfectly executed wedding day without the fuss and stress that one would think should go along with that.  Laura and Patrick have amazing taste and wanted to throw a classic wedding celebration that was memorable for themselves and their guests, yet they kept a calm demeanor throughout the day that allowed them to really be present in the day and focus on the most important task of the day:  marrying one another.

Which is why there wasn’t a dry eye in the house during their ceremony, given that their wedding day was many years in the making.  They shared their own versions of meeting one another for the first time as pre teens, reconnecting in college, and staying true to their commitment to one another during Patrick’s years of deployment.  In short, they reminded everyone in the room of how love stories may be windy and have many curves – much like the marriage they were about to enter – but going through it all while holding onto the love you share is what makes life together grand.

Ah, Julia and Jeff.  Where do I begin?  These two have a warmth about them that literally feels like a hug just being in their presence.  And if you think I’m just trying to use flowery words here, I promise you’ll see their amazing hearts when you scroll on down.

Anyway, after meeting them, I didn’t expect anything less than their wedding day to be inviting, fun, and full of joy and love, just like the two of them.

And naturally their wedding day did prove to be all of that…and then some.  The then some being the fact that not only did their day speak volumes about who they were as individuals and a couple (read:  amazing, and also I just teared up writing that and thinking about their vows and the speeches some of their friends and family gave about them), BUT – longest sentence ever here – their day also included amazing performances by their talented loved ones.  I left feeling like I’d been to the most intimate dinner party yet also huge Broadway performance in one evening, not an easy feat to pull off.

So below I give you Julia and Jeff, two people living their best life, on their wedding day and every day.

If somebody contacts me who’s friends with Jessica of Phlour Flower Design, I know immediately that they’re going to be good people.  And not just good people.  Fun, loving, and laid back people.  So needless to say, when Carissa reached out about having me photograph her and Sam’s wedding at Castle Hill, it was an immediate yes from me – and thankfully for them, too, as Carissa was certain she wanted someone who captured their day with little intervention and with an eye for telling the story as it unfolded.  So a match was made…and then I counted down for 12 months for their big day to arrive;)

Which when it finally did was just as fun and unique as I knew it would be – a true reflection of her and Sam.  There were tambourines instead of bridesmaid bouquets, a pinata instead of a wedding cake, a flower grandma in addition to a flower girl, and 1000 bright neon cranes as a backdrop for their vows (all of which Carissa folded – with a little help from Sam;) – as a symbol of the patience and commitment that would be brought into the marriage).

More importantly, there was a sense of joy that was palpable the entire day, something I will forever to be grateful to have been a part of.

So scroll on down to see a peek into their day, and please see the list of amazing vendors who helped bring the whole day together with ease and grace.)
