Wedding season is in full force! We love April weddings because the heat hasn’t hit yet and everything is still in the process of coming back to life! Sure, the pollen and the sneezing aren’t ideal but I’ve missed the leaves on the trees! Trey and Lindsey had the perfect scenario for wedding day weather. It was raining south of us and so we just had light cloud cover all day long! God gave us a natural soft box so that I could have free reign over the property of the Tides Inn! We shot portraits on the dock, on the pier, on the beach, etc and never had to worry about harsh lighting. I love those type of days! I also loved this day because I know that Trey and Lindsey have been looking forward to it for so long. Not only were they coming together as husband and wife but they were officially becoming a family with Trey’s son Tanner.
Their beautiful family was celebrated by a ton of family and friends who love them dearly. I honest think Tanner danced with more people during the reception than Trey and Lindsey! He is so loved!! Before we started shooting on the wedding day, Trey stopped me in the lobby of the hotel and explained that he wanted Tanner to be a part of their first look. So as Lindsey was walking to see her “Almost” husband on a private pier, Tanner walked down the stairs and surprised her with roses. And then the tears started! :) I don’t know if Lindsey got more choked up over that or when she saw her dad for the first time! Needless to say, there were a ton of happy tears and it was a gorgeous wedding day to be a part of! Enjoy my summary of the day!!!
You know I was loving these teal dresses! beautiful!!! This was Lindsey’s grandma’s pin…. First Look! Love this shot from Michael! Lindsey you are so sweet! So many happy tears! Michael’s angel… Stunning!! Time to get married!! Both of them were in tears before they ever reached the aisle! :) cutie! And this is why you need a second shooter… such a great angle of the kiss!!
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!
Another month. I had forgotten just how fast it goes when they are this tiny. One minute they are in 0-3 month clothes and the next you’re unpacking 6month options!
How is it MARCH already in 2021?! This year is flying by and we’re getting closer and closer to the beginning of wedding season! At least we are here in Virginia! It’s my honor to get to introduce you to some of our KJ Students who are doing the hard work of educating themselves and growing their businesses! My hope is that their stories and advice will be an encouragement to anyone wanting to grow and feel confident before wedding season picks up!
Welcome to a brand new installment of KJ Student Spotlight!! It’s always a good day on the blog when we get to introduce you to some of our students and share their wins and advice!!! These three students have taken courses, watched Youtube episodes, are KJ All Access members, use our templates and have invested in themselves time and time again in order to grow their businesses! They deserve this recognition!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
