2017 // weddings
A new year is here already and when I think about the year that has passed I am overwhelmed with all of the wonderful people I've had the pleasure of meeting, places I've gotten to explore, and love I've gotten to capture. I love love and all the little in between moments so I figured I would share some of my favorites from the 2017 wedding season. I would like to thank every one of my clients for having me capture these special moments, I am forever grateful.
Katie and Joe's wedding at The National Aviary.
As if the beautiful setting wasn't enough, can you handle Molly and Chase?! They're gorgeous, and obviously totally in love.
That time we crossed into Canadian waters.
This goofy group.
Lynsdy and Ryan also chose an awesome venue, People's Natural Gas Pavilion.
Drooling over Brittany's dress. She looked amazing, so much so that no one even realized she forgot to wear her veil down the aisle.
Loving the wind on top of the inclined plane.
Having Mary and Jonathan pull off along the highway for these.
This sweet couple and their faith, family, and friends.
Sarah and John's reactions at their first look at each other on their wedding day.
Sarah's amazing choreographed dance with her dad.
Stacey and Dave's wedding at Stacey's family's property and with one of their best friends officiating a hilarious ceremony.
Rachael and Jeffrey's first look.
He was so afraid to step on her dress...
but not as afraid as he was of falling into the water!
Rachael and Jeff's wedding was FILLED with sweet personal touches everywhere you turned. I adored their lego ceremony when they moved the bride and groom under the archway together.
And had to hold back tears while taking this shot of Rachael's dad admiring the symbolism.
Alaina reading her book full of notes and photos from her bridesmaids.
