Kevin + Anna Grace

filed in:

This day has been SO anticipated for quite a long time!! The beautiful bed and breakfast overlooking the water was FULL of bridesmaids and excitement when I arrived!! I hugged AG and immediately saw familiar faces around the room. I knew it was going to be an amazing day and I was right!! Anna Grace is a photographer and graphic designer and so she MADE time for her pictures! It’s just incredible all that we accomplished before the sunset and Kevin is such a trooper!! I told AG just how lucky she was to have a guy that’s willing to take pictures on docks, in fields, sit in the grass, walk to the beach and pull off on the side of the road for portraits with a teal wall! Kevin just smiled and nuzzle her perfectly. They have SO many beautiful portraits! It was such a wonderful day! As Anna Grace walked down the aisle, tears were streaming down her face.

She was holding on to her dad and trying to smile as she walked toward her future husband but there were just too many tear! Happy tears! She has been waiting for this day for so long and it was finally here!! After 4 years of dating, these two were finally tying the knot!! The “theme” of the big day was nautical with anchors galore! They picked the verse Hebrews 6:19 “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure” and it was so fitting for a wedding. I love seeing a couple start their marriage with a foundation based off of scripture. There is no doubt in my mind that these two are going to do amazing things together!! God has big plans for them as husband and wife and it was such a great honor to be a part of the very beginning of their new life together!! Technically this was the last wedding in our “shooting spree” this fall. We have two more 2013 weddings but we have a little break right now and we’re SO excited! This was the PERFECT wedding to end our season with!!! Enjoy some of my favorites… well, a lot of my favorites and congrats to the newlyweds!!! We love you guys!!!!

LOVE THESE SHOES!!! Love AG’s design work!!! So cute! About to get in her dress!! AG you’re stunning!!!! Just beautiful!! A few tears during Kevin’s letter:) Love these next few initial moments together! gorgeous! The wind was just ridiculous! It’s amazing we got these next few! :)
Ok I’m not one for direct sunlight… but AG wanted water shots and so we went for it… and I have to admit that I love this one:) Love that right image! AG you look GOOD girl!! Dad’s first look! Love it!
This was in the parking lot and I just couldn’t pass it up! Those colors! Sweet moment.. MARRIEDDDD!! Yayy!! And I got a pic with the bride after the ceremony?! I never get to do that!! :) She spotted this wall from the road and we had to stop! And I’m glad we did!! And THEN it was golden hour!!! Whoop whoop! Love this:) This was an accident shot and I loved it so much it made the blog post!! The sunset created a purple-y glow! Pretty! LOVE this! Off to their reception!
Love this escort card display!
ha! I’m lucky I didn’t get stomped on! :) yessssss….

Jonathan + Melanie Grand Ivory Wedding

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….

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.
