Anytime that we’re shooting in the late summer I’m always praying for a little relief from the heat. It’s HOT in Virginia in July and August. Thankfully, Tori and Logan chose Libby Park for their portraits and there was an amazing breeze that broke up the intense August humidity!! We weren’t the only ones taking advantage of the beautiful location and perfect light. We passed THREE different photographer friends during this shoot!! It was a fun evening capturing this exciting new season in Tori and Logan’s lives, but it was also so great just getting to know them even better.
Logan and Tori have this sweet way of making each other laugh, and as a photographer, this is like striking a gold mine!!! They were so much fun in front of my camera, and it makes me excited for next summer when they become husband and wife! However, there is a part of me that cannot believe that TORI is getting MARRIED, because she used to be in the Gayton youth group back when Michael was a youth pastor! I remember her in high school and I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that she’s out of college and has a diamond on her left hand! (A gorgeous diamond by the way! Way to go Logan!)
Tori is a planner at heart and has gotten so much accomplished in a little amount of time! They haven’t been engaged very long, and her whole wedding is basically planned! She even has a DRESS! Amazing!!! Michael and I are looking forward to spending the day serving these two and their entire family. It’s an honor to be asked to capture wedding days for our past youth group kids! It’s such a rare privilege to be invited back into this new season of their lives in such a unique way, and we don’t take that for granted!!
Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!! And Ps. If you think “Wow, there are a lot of images with those blooms!” I couldn’t help it! They were perfect with Tori’s dress!!
These two…. they laugh so easily! It’s seriously the best! My FAVORITE!!!!! Tori you are so gorgeous! Another Favorite!
This session took place just 45 minutes before their welcome dinner the night before their big day! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!
Our life has been a whirlwind in the best kind of way this summer! Life sure looks a lot different than it did just a few years ago and it’s about to change AGAIN!
If you’ve ever been a member of KJ All Access, you know that it’s been an evolution since the beginning! Over 4 years of wedding content, engagement sessions, family sessions and so much more!
When you’re sorting 5,000+ photos after each wedding, staying organized is a huge priority!
We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
Have you had a troublesome groom in the past? They don’t cooperate with the poses and just want to get back to the party?
