When I think about this summer and all of the incredibly fun, genuine, thoughtful couples I get to photograph I get so excited. I met Austin and Jolene in Chico on a chilly Sunday morning for their engagement photos and they were so sweet and easy to photograph and be around. Their love is evident and I cannot wait for their summer wedding in the mountains!
When couples are as adventurous as Nick and Kate, you photograph them in the mountains. These two were up for anything and were totally fine with the wind and all the elements that came with their engagement shoot. I can't wait to shoot their wedding this summer!
Kate once wrote me a note when I was a troubled 7th grader-she made an impression on me back then and it has stuck with me ever since. Matt, Kate and Anders are just plain as real as you get-they don't hide anything from anyone and don't apologize for who they are. I think in the age we live in, we have lost the ability to be completely ourselves and not feel bad about it. Matt has made a mark on my husband (in the best way-no, he didn't beat him) in a way that I will never be able to repay him for. I'm thankful for the friends we have in Matt and Kate-we don't spend nearly enough time together but I know they have our backs. This family is gold.
Hanging out with Brieanne and Ben last fall and getting to take their photos was awesome. They are both so sweet and genuinely interested in getting to know people and I loved that about them. This shoot has been one of my favorite engagement shoots for a while-I just can't stop posting photos of these two. When two people are crazy about each other, you can tell.
I've been so behind blogging our 2016 weddings, so this is a start. The Hedge wedding was absolutely beautiful-from Chloe's dress, the incredible flowers, her bridesmaids, and beautiful decor, the list could go on. I loved shooting this wedding for so many reasons. Chloe's mother, Kerri Kanning was one of the first people to notice my blog and the fact that I loved to take photos and tell stories. Kerri went to be with the Lord before Chloe and Jake got married but I have no doubt that she was looking down-all smiles that day. Chloe carries so much of her mother with her and it was an honor to capture her wedding last summer.
