I specifically remember squealing when I ran through the front door to tell my roommates about the couple I had just met. Immediately after meeting Jared and Lauryn I knew I was going to love them. I have been looking forward to their wedding day since we first met because I knew it would be beautiful…and it was. It definitely wasn’t beautiful because of the weather! We were dodging downpours all day! It was beautiful because two best friends committed their lives to one another and to their Lord. Jared and Lauryn committed to loving and serving each other forever. They took communion together and it was beautiful. Listening to the prayers of their pastor and the toasts from their friends, it is evident that Jared and Lauryn are deeply loved. They couldn’t have been happier to finally be married. The look on Lauryn’s face when she was called Mrs. Galloway for the first time was priceless! It was such an honor to be a part of the very beginning of their new life together.
Mr. and Mrs. Galloway, thank you for allowing me into your lives. You are beautiful people, inside and out and it was a privilege to capture that beauty last Friday. I’m so excited for you and I wish you the very best! God bless!!
Ok, before you think this is a Home&Garden post, you must realize that Lauryn had the CUTEST details. I LOVED them. Everything about their day fell into the bright, light country theme. Loved it!
Jared and Lauryn opted for a “first look”! This is where the bride and groom get to see each other right before the ceremony and I get to capture their first interaction on their wedding day! It’s awesome!
This is what happens when you are shooting too fast because you’re scared of rain and running out of light! haha Cool huh!?

Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
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!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
