Asher is one today!
Here's a four-photo recap of what was happening just about a year ago. :)
Because today is the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon, Courtnee decided to have a space-themed shoot for Asher's birthday with this awesome cardboard rocket she made!
It's been so fun to watch this little guy grow up and I cannot believe he's already one!
Happy birthday, sweet Asher!
Back in May, I was able to take some super sweet engagement photos for a former college classmate, Meghan, and her fiance, Paul. During the shoot, we figured out that Paul went to highschool with my husband! Small world!
I was super excited to work on their photos and then, of course, my computer basically bit the dust in the middle of editing their gallery. Thank goodness for back ups of files, but man it was a pain to start over.
Meghan has been so patiently waiting on me to get these finished up with all of my technology troubles, and I'm so excited to finally share this sweet couple!
Without further ado, check out this precious engaged couple!
Okay but look at this gorgeous ring!
Paul is interested in astronomy, so it was fun to incorporate my vintage map of the stars into their shoot.
I had so much fun working with these two and can't wait to shoot their wedding this fall!
In late March, I got to take maternity photos for this awesome couple who's now just a few days out from their due date! I had the privilege of taking their photos sans-baby bump this past summer, and I don't think I ever shared those on the blog! I'll have to do that at some point, but for now enjoy the Guinns - pregnant and very cute!
Kathryne was literally glowing. It was pretty incredible!
These might be some of the most fun photos I've captured on a maternity shoot! These guys are gonna be such great parents to baby Malcolm.
I had so much fun with these two. I'm so glad to know them and to be able to help capture some memories from this exciting time!
Congrats, you two. Can't wait to meet your little one!
LOOK AT THESE CUTIES!
I got to take photos of these precious friends back in February and I'm finally blogging about it a week before their wedding!
We kept having to delay this shoot due to awful weather, but I was so glad we were finally able to squeeze it in.
Enjoy a few photos of Tucker and Katelyn being adorable!
Couples make my job super easy when they just never stop laughing with each other.
I'm so happy to call these two my friends and SO EXCITED to celebrate them next weekend! Congrats, (soon to be) Mr. and Mrs. Price!
I have to be honest - I have completely neglected this blog and my photography in general for a long time!
The end of last year was a whirlwind with shooting three weddings and being in one, buying a house, and getting through the holidays on top of a full time job. I pretty much didn't touch my camera or my social media for the entire month of January, but I'm back!
I was able to take some photos of precious little Henry and his momma back in December. Enjoy a few shots of this blue-eyed cutie!
Chris and Aubri are married!!
It was so special to be surrounded by family as I photographed the wedding of my cousin, Chris and his sweet new wife, Aubri. These two are so in love and it is so obvious!
Aubri had a precious first look with her dad.
And Chris had a first look he was not quite expecting.
Since Chris and Aubri didn't have a real first look, it was so sweet to see his reaction when she walked down the aisle and they saw each other for the first time.
After the ceremony, we braved the drizzle to get some outdoor shots of the newly wed couple!
I've said this about them every time I've shared their photos, but these two never stop smiling. They are SO in love.
Chris and Aubri, thank you for trusting James and I to capture this day for you.
It was such an honor!
Love you guys, and best wishes for all the happiness ahead on this new adventure!
I met Courtney and Cody back in March (you might remember their senior pup, Betty, here: courtney-cody-engaged.html ) and I've been looking forward to their wedding ever since! They were so laid back and so much fun to work with.
Courtney was seriously the most chill bride EVER.
James and I had a great time capturing this beautiful day!
Details are my faaaaav and I can't get over how perfect these were.
Courtney did a first look with her dad and it was the sweetest thing. If you look really close, you can see a tiny tear in one of these photos. :')
And then, of course, the first look between the bride and groom.
I totally understand why some people don't want to do one, but I am a FAN. Zoom in to see such sweet emotion on Cody's face when he sees his beautiful bride!
They read their vows privately to each other after their first look and MAN. It was such a magical scene. Beautiful light, leaves falling all around them. Wow. I cried at least three times during this wedding, and that moment was one of them. Photos could not do it justice.
This ceremony location was a dream. The light, the leaves, the love. All of the heart eyes.
The Black wedding was an absolutely beautiful day and we were so happy to be a part of it. James even mentioned how even though we met most of the people for the first time that day, everyone was so sweet, welcoming, and close-knit that it felt like we were truly a part of the party.
Cody and Courtney, we wish you so much happiness in this new adventure! It was such an honor to document this wonderful day!
It was such an honor to shoot the beautiful wedding of Kyllian and Kara Mobley!
This will be a long one because I am good at over-sharing and there's just so much good to share here!
This sweet couple got married in a gorgeous venue built in 1916. It has SO many stunning details and it was the perfect backdrop for Kara's vision.
Speaking of details, they are one of my favorite parts of any wedding and these did not disappoint! Kara nailed the vintage look she was going for with her pearls, burgundy, and rose gold accents.
And now allow me to share way too many photos from their first look because it is just too darn precious.
At this point, I finally stopped creeping through the foliage to let them have a few minutes alone, and then I came back for them to model and look like movie stars.
Like I said, I'm a sucker for good details.
I couldn't get over these floral ties worn by the groomsmen.
Ladies and gents, marry someone who looks at you the way Kyllian looks at his beautiful bride.
Kara and her dad did their secret handshake right before he left her at the altar and it was pretty much the cutest thing ever.
I'm not crying, you're crying.
I love these looks of "WE'RE MARRIED" and also "IS THIS REAL LIFE?!"
And then pure joy.
There is always so much emotion in the first few moments following the ceremony.
I promise I am almost done with this super long post, but I just loved so many things about this wedding.
During the reception, current and former members from the chorus group at Kyllian's alma mater sang a song specifically for the new Mobleys.
It was such a unique and special moment!
I'm so glad I get to share the story of this beautiful day through photos.
Kyllian and Kara, thank you so much for trusting me to capture these sweet memories!
These two lovebirds got married three weeks ago! In the middle of putting together their wedding gallery, I realized I never shared all of the engagements we took a month and a half ago!
(As a personal note, in the past month and a half-ish, I've shot their wedding, been in one of my best friend's weddings, bought a house with my sweet husband, and begun renovating said house on top of it being one of the busiest seasons at my day job. SO I've been a little busy lately! But better late than never, right? :) )
We squeezed in some last-minute engagements because I wanted us to get to know each other a little better before the big day. And man, am I glad we were able to make it happen!
We got some fantastic light and a few super sweet shots during our quick shoot.
Be on the lookout for their wedding gallery in the next day or so!
