Ask Anything

I don’t think it’s possible to find a bride more excited about her wedding and her pictures than Julie! This girl is the queen of planning ahead and making sure all of her little details are taken care of! Julie booked well over a year ago and immediately scheduled her engagement session. As we talked during her session, she explained that her wedding was pretty much planned…. a year in advance!! Ummm, maybe she should go into event planning instead of being an amazing food blogger and working a day job!! Julie is just incredible and I knew from day one that her wedding day was going to be such a joy to be a part of! Michael and I headed up to Raspberry Plains on Saturday and I just had a good feeling that it was going to be a good day…. and I really think that comes from having a great relationship with our couples beforehand. Julie and I have been emailing for so long that I feel like I’ve known her forever!!

She’s definitely a friend and not just a client… I mean… she may or may not have jokingly asked if Bokeh could be the ring bearer!! Lets be honest… how cute would that have been?  Jason and Julie’s wedding day was wonderful! Family and friends gathered from ALL corners of the world to celebrate alongside of them! Tears were shed… happy tears of course and promises were made. They danced the night away and before they knew it, it was time for their bubble send off to Turks and Caicos!! Jason and Julie, it was SUCH an honor to be with you two on Saturday!! Enjoy some of our favorites!!!

LOVED the stationary! Stunning!!! Bridesmaids first reaction! Love it! Jason you look handsome!! Cutie. I thought my “flowery tree shot” days were over for this year… apparently not!! Love the image of the left that Michael captured!  Great example of why it’s great to have two shooters. We shot this in about .5 minutes because of the gnats! Michael got the left shot while I was taking the shot above and then the shot below on the right! Gorgeous venue! I call this the “family hug” pose and they nailed it!  Obsessed with these colors!  LOVE! FAVORITE!!!! Of the whole day!!! Hands down!  That light!! Heavenly!  So cute!!
