This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
The only difference is that I asked Brandon and Meghan to stand in rows of CORN instead of climbing into a soybean field! This day was beautiful. The weather was incredible! It felt better to be outside than inside! It was almost as if we had sneak peek into fall just for one day with 70 degree temps, zero humidity and a slight breeze! It was the perfect day for Brandon and Meghan to start their new life together!
I’ve known Meghan her entire life. We grew up in the same small town and went to the same country church where my Dad has been the pastor for over 30 years. It felt like this wedding day was a giant reunion…. only with a lot more tiny kiddos running around! My Dad officiated the ceremony, we photographed the day, friends provided food, the venue is owned by a family friend and all of our families were in attendance…. including all of our kids! Micah, Evy, Harper and Graham haven’t been at a wedding that we have photographed in some time and I have to say, I had to work hard not to be too distracted. They looked so precious in their wedding attire!!!
Speaking of wedding attire, Meghan looked beautiful. She’s always been gorgeous but she was glowing on her wedding day and I loved photographing the two of them! Not only are they photogenic, but I shot their entire wedding day with a brand new camera body and I quickly fell in love with it! From their willow tree portraits to the corn field, it didn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to show you my favorites!
Meghan and Brandon, we’re so happy for you guys. Brandon, I know we haven’t known you since you were a baby but we do know the Beasley’s and you’re one lucky guy. You have married into one special family. We’re so happy for you both and it was an honor to be your photographers!!!!

It still feels surreal to tell people about what we do for a living. We photograph weddings and we teach other people how to photograph weddings. It’s quite literally a dream job for a creative like myself who loves people! Every month when we do these Student Spotlights, I’m reminded all over again how much of a privilege it is to be a part of these photographer’s lives and play a small role in their stories.
This is Rhett’s third month blog post and I’m actually impressed that it’s only 9 days late!! I’m sure I’ll fall behind this year but as of right now, I’m doing ok and I’m actually thankful for the monthly-post commitment to keep me on top of editing our family pics each month!! While people say “the days are long but the years are short”…. I would say EVERYTHING feels short right now!
If you’re a photographer that despises Off-Camera-Flash (OCF), this blog post is for you! Ugh. I feel you. I used to hate it too… and it honestly still isn’t my favorite but it’s necessary in order to rise in your professionalism on wedding days after dark!! Off camera flash seems intimidating when you’re trying it for the first time.
This is such a fun post for me to share because it’s what I consider my “hobby”! Sure, it’s still photo-related so maybe it’s not a true hobby for me since my career is consumed in the photography world… but it is most definitely what I love to do for fun!
This is the biggest complaint we’re hearing about the R6!! Photographers who are moving from the CANON MARK III camera body and switching to the new Canon R6 camera body are lost when it comes to perfecting their edits to the style they are used to.
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
