There are a million reasons that I love what I do, but one of the biggest ones has to be that I get to meet amazing couples, and hear their stories. It’s like when you’re in grade school, and you gather around for story time to hear of a fairy tale, except the stories I hear are way better than that of Cinderella…because the love stories I hear are real. unscripted. and better than anyone could ever make up.

Shannon and Reilly have known each other since they were young enough to be hearing those fairy tales.  But they never imagined that they would end up having their own love story. And for the record, i don’t think any storybook characters are quite as cute together as these two are.

 

Enjoy some of my favorites from their downtown engagement session!

About a year and a half ago, Natalie was chatting with me, like we do almost every day. “How was your weekend? Do anything fun?” I rambled on and on about nothing spectacular, for at least 10 minutes. Then, I asked Natalie how her weekend was, and rather than tell he how she worked on her house, or played with her adorable pup, Liberty, she just lifted her left hand and showed me her sparkling engagement ring.

“WHAT???”

“Yup! He did it! I had no idea!”

I’ve seen a lot of smiles on Natalie’s face over the past few years that we’ve been friends together, but that smile was the biggest, ever.

From that day forward, I got to watch Natalie and Phil plan their perfect day – from wedding dress, to venue, to the band, and I was completely humbled when they asked me to be their photographer. Their day couldn’t have gone more perfect! All that hard work definitely paid off:)

Enjoy some of my favorites from their fall wedding!

  • Dianna Rucker - wow beautiful. Love the ring shot too! Such a beautiful venue too

Jody and Michael are all about fun. It’s obvious, right away, when you meet them. Michael’s bold laugh, and Jody’s big smile – they’re just the perfect pair together. Their wedding was everything I expected, and more. With the help of Jay Villa, from Superior Events, LLC, their wedding day went off without a hitch, and was filled with friends and family celebrating in the joy that Jody and Michael share.

Enjoy some of my favorites from their fall wedding at Deer Creek Valley Ranch.

I just love these shoes! Jody had such a classic look, and added a little punch.

Just over two years ago, I was lucky enough to be with marcus and judy as they tied the knot in keystone. when i received an email from judy that their first baby was on the way, i was just thrilled! these two are just so sweet, and their little baby boy fits right in:)grayson is a complete doll, and loves his snuggles! enjoy some of my favorites from his very first photo session.

wrapped in one of judy’s baby blankets

P I N I T P I N I T

grayson just loooves to be snuggled in blankets, so we let him stay snuggled for a few images. after all, there’s not much cuter than a snuggly baby.

Jamie and Fernando’s love story is the classic love story… Kind of. They met, fell in love, and are now Mr. and Mrs. but none of that would have happened if Jamie hadn’t moved cross country to New York City. Talk about brave – moving that far from home all alone has to be one of the most terrifying things ever! It paid off for her, though.  Fernando and Jamie, both teachers, are adorably in love and living their love story now – complete with passing love notes:)

Enjoy some of my favorite images from their incredibly unique, and yet still classic (just like them…) wedding day.

 

P I N I T P I N I T

i’m not sure who was more adorable while watching Jamie come down the aisle with her dad – Fernando, or Jamie’s mom.

P I N I T

such a gorgeous church! i love how bright it is!

P I N I T P I N I T

Jamie’s bouquet was made of brooches. I couldn’t stop staring at it! i just love how creative she is!

P I N I T

some of my favorite spots to photograph at are spots that you wouldn’t look twice at when walking down the street. these windows weren’t drawing any eyes from people on the street, but i love how rich and interesting they look in photographs! a little bit different, but still so classy for these two.

P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T

sometimes, the wind works wonders at just the right time:)

P I N I T

favorite.

P I N I T P I N I T

one last photo at this great little spot before a nice security guard gently told us to leave – no photography allowed on the grounds. but no one can be mean to a bride and groom! 😉

P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T

we found so many spots to capture Jamie and Fernando’s portraits in just a few blocks of downtown. gotta love the city.

P I N I T P I N I T

P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T

everything looked just so perfect together!

P I N I T P I N I T P I N I T

these have to be some of my favorite ring shots ever. shannon – my second photographer for the day – shot them and i am just in love with them!

Congratulations on the start of something spectacular!
