I have loved the senior sessions I’ve had this year, and I wanted to post a few favorites from my sessions with Paige, Elizabeth, Molly, Rachel and Ellie. All of these women have great personalities and extremely bright futures. I wish them all the best! Congrats, girls!
A few weeks ago, I was in Colorado with my family to shoot a wedding, and we were blessed to be able to drop by my sweet grandparents’ home. Though distance keeps us from seeing them as much as we would like, I can’t help but feel right at home when we get the chance to visit. They have always lived a very simple, but full life. They have created an incredible family legacy that I’m proud to be a part of. I will cherish the many moments I have sat in tears from laughing with my grandma as we hold hands on her couch, the moments I have sat in awe of the incredible stories my grandpa has lived to tell, the moments where I have stood outside feeling so small against the fortress of logs my grandpa has prepared for their wood-burning stove, the moments where the most epic rounds of Pitch have been played around the same table we have snapped gallons and gallons of green beans on (again, in tears from laughing) and the moments where nothing has been more comforting than eating my grandma’s incredible cooking. I adore my grandparents so much.
Being a photographer makes me want to capture everything I see because I am constantly stimulated and inspired by the sights around me. However, there are too many moments that simply can’t be captured as they deserve to be. Their home is one of those places. A place that can’t be described by words or captured in pictures, and I mean that in the best of ways. That being said, I still wanted to grab a couple of shots that make me feel like I’m there whenever I’m missing them. These are just a few captures of the spaces where so many memories have been made. Remember how Kirsten Dunst’s character in the movie “Elizabethtown” snaps imaginary photos with her hands when there is an iconic moment or memory she never wants to forget? This is the same idea, only I want to try to permanently capture these moments and spaces. I hope to have more posts in the future that display the same idea with a series called, “Remember This”. The idea is that whenever I reach a place where I need a reminder of what really matters in my life, I can come back to these photos and savor them for all they hold.
These two are the greatest! We had a great time battling the wind this past weekend, and it’s clear to me that these two are a great match. I’m so excited for their future together and I wish them all the best! Cheers to Scott and Tara!
Words can’t express how happy I am for these two lovebirds! I’ll start by saying that most of my favorite memories from high school involve Seth in some way. In addition, he ended up living with my husband freshman year in college, which led to some interesting, awkward and always hilarious times. Throughout our friendship, each of us has gone through our series of hard times and joyful times, and no matter what, I know we’ll always be there for each other. It’s the kind of effortless friendship that means we can pick up where we left off, be weird, and always find something to laugh about. I’ll always consider him to be the brother I never had. All that being said, the thought of a girl coming into his life made me somewhat protective. However, Kristi is the most gorgeous, caring, sweetest, and overall most adorable woman with the BEST smile! Together, they are perfection, and that makes a sister happy. I’m so excited to photograph their wedding this summer, and I wish them all the happiness in the world! Congrats Seth and Kristi!
This October wedding could not have been more perfect! Chris and Amy are great friends of ours, and I was so honored to be their photographer. My husband and I often talk about how much we adore these two. Every time we hang with Chris and Amy, we leave feeling full and blessed to have such great friends we can laugh with, eat with, and share life with. These two could not be more perfect for each other! Every detail of their day was incredible, and the Harn Homestead was the perfect venue. Congratulations sweet friends! We know that God has incredible things in store for your marriage, and we can’t wait to continue enjoying our lives with you in it! Enjoy these images of their beautiful wedding day!
Here are some favorites from Billy and Sarah’s wedding in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Every detail was gorgeous, and the venue was incredible. So happy for you both! Cheers!
