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.

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.

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

P I N I T

favorite.

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! ūüėČ

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.

everything looked just so perfect together!

  • Jackie Valdez - These make me want to cry. What a spectacular wedding!! I will never forget how fun it was!!!!

Rachel: Why doesn’t she want to come out?
Ross: You know what I think it is? I think you made such a nice home for her over the last nine months that she just doesn’t want to leave.
Rachel: Aw, look at you makin’ up crap for me.

sorry babies. that comfy home you’ve been living in, it can’t last forever. the “womb service” you’ve been getting 24/7, it¬†will¬†end. for kate and her hubs stephen, that meant a scheduled c-section.

 

P I N I T

i love the look of excitement-nervous-what-the-heck-are-they-doing-to-me-behind-this-sheet.

P I N I T

being in the super-sterile operating room with the bright lights and fancy doctors everywhere was beyond cool. call it gross if you want. but newsflash people, birth is amazing.

P I N I T

it’s a labor of love, that labor thing, even if kate’s labor was on an operating table.

P I N I T

seeing cillian go from womb to room was seriously the coolest thing i’ve seen. ever. the little human was starting his life¬†right in front of my eyes.

P I N I T P I N I T

P I N I T

P I N I T

hi baby. meet momma. on the outside.:)

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

it’s not officially official until the footprints are made.

P I N I T

hi baby cillian!

P I N I T

over-the-moon, totally-in-love, proud-mama moment.

P I N I T

nurse: “would you like me to take a picture with you in it?”

me: “um yes! i’m going to need proof that i was a part of this.”

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

kate – you’re gorgeous. baby c is, too:)

P I N I T P I N I T

i really didn’t think kate’s two little girls could get any cuter. but when they met their new little brother, they somehow got even cuter.

P I N I T

don’t you just want to scoop her up?

P I N I T

P I N I T

P I N I T

being born is no joke. enjoy your little nap, baby c!

P I N I T

first bubble bath.

P I N I T P I N I T

a mohawk on a newborn? i mean that’s just too much to handle…

  • Wendy Neb Thompson - Absolutely adorable!!!!

  • Kate Smith - AH thank you Katie!! WE LOVE THEM!

  • Cathy Marie - very cool. what an awesome way to remember such a special day. Great pics!

I love babies. Like, I really, really love babies. They can cry, fuss, and scream all they want, and I’ll still love babies. Not only are they just so darn cute and little, but they’re all so different. Right from the get go. They all have their own look, and they all have their own personality from day one. Aiden is no exception. This little man is such a sweet little guy, and (as you can see from the images)¬†loves to be all snuggly.

My favorite part about lifestyle newborn sessions is capturing not only how the baby looks and their cute, tiny features, but also what they like to do, where they like to be, what makes them have that smirky little grin on their face. Looking back to when my own little guy was a newborn (almost a year ago!) I love to remember how little he was, and how different he looked, but i also love to remember how different his personality was. They change so much, and so fast, and not just in their appearance.

Enjoy some of my favorite images of baby Aiden’s newborn session, including lots of him snuggling in his cozy swaddle. Because, really, what’s better than being snuggly?

 

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

 Baby bums = best thing ever.

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

Don’t mess with baby A. His bodyguard will take you down.

Welcome to the world, Aiden!

A few nights ago, I was listening to the radio while I was stuck in traffic. To be completely honest, I usually hate the radio. The songs are the same, the djs are all pretty annoying, and I’d rather plug in my iphone and sing like a fool to some pandora. But this night, I ended up listening to the good ‘ol fm. They were discussing marriage, and they took a caller. This caller starting said something that I’ve heard at many weddings, but for some reason, it really stuck with me this time.

“I hope, that on your wedding day, you love each other the least.”

Sounds pretty awful, right? I mean, you should probably love your partner a decent amount on the day you marry them! But when you really think about it, only the truly lucky couples love each other the least on their wedding day.

Last year, I met with Allyson and Jon at a local cafe to talk wedding. It was obvious that they were in love. When we shot their engagement session, they were even more in love. And on their big day, they loved each other far more. Each and every time I was with the couple, I guarantee, if I were to ask them, they’d say, “I’ve never loved him/her more than i do today.” Now that their wedding has passed, I know they love each other more now than they did that very day. (Even if they didn’t think that was possible.)

That’s the magic of true love. You don’t think you can love someone any more than you do, and then all of the sudden…you do.

So, Allyson & Jon – I hope that every day of your long marriage, you will love each other more than you did the day before.

P I N I T

I’m a sucker for sneak peeks.

P I N I T

Allyson let each bridesmaid choose their own dress to reflect their personal style – I love how they ended up looking as a group!

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

My shot – left. My 2nd shooter’s shot (also named kate)- right.

i have the best second shooters ever.

P I N I T P I N I T

Allyson was adventurous and climbed through some branches to get these shots. I luuurve how they turned out!

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

Allyson’s mom was the sweetest thing ever watching her little girl walk down the aisle.

P I N I T P I N I T

such a family affair – jon’s dad married him and allyson. i mean, really, they’re whole family is just too sweet.

P I N I T P I N I T

I just love these three together. it’s so¬†them.

favorite.

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

congratulations allyson & jon – i hope you have many, many days of “I love you more than ever”.

One of the best parts about photographing weddings is seeing people who are just¬†so in love. You know, the couple that you look at, and you just¬†know – they’re perfect together. Nate and Jamie are one of those couples. It’s a dead giveaway just by the smiles on their faces. They both had the biggest smiles on their faces from the time they were getting ready with their bridal party, all through their lively reception. And smiley couples…smiley couples are the best couples.:)

Enjoy some of my favorite images from Nate and Jamie’s incredible day at Lionsgate.

P I N I T

Nate and Jamie’s bridal party was a blast – all about the fun!
And how can you resist an adorable pup like that?

P I N I T

Jamie thought of all the details to reflect just how adventurous and outgoing her and Nate are as a couple – including lime green bridesmaid shoes, and some pretty awesome bridal heels, too!

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

I love all of the fun details at Lionsgate!

P I N I T

The little ring bearer stole my heart! Adorable is such an understatement…

Big thanks to Shannon Gray for her amazing work as a 2nd shooter! My shot – left. Shannon’s shot – right!

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

Such a gorgeous bride!

Jamie & Nate – I wish you all the happiness life has to offer as you start your journey as husband and wife. Enjoy all the moments – big and small – and keep smiling together.:)
