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!
I don't know very many people anymore who marry their high school sweethearts, but with these two it makes so much sense. They got seated next to each other in a class and Marissa couldn't stop laughing at Jonah's jokes. The rest is history and I want to be friends with them forever. If you know these two, you know how contagious their personalities are and you'll be laughing until the end of time. Sam and I can hardly wait to shoot their wedding this summer!
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.

When our friends said, "We want to elope and we want you to photograph it." I think I jumped up and down (on the inside) a little bit. Jer and Rhianna have been our friends for a couple years now, and I knew that whatever they chose to do for their wedding, it would be deep and meaningful-every part of it. Jerimiah flew in two of Rhianna's closest friends (as a surprise) so they could stand next to her on her wedding day. This wedding and this couple are so close to my heart.
Also, the officiant was smokin' hot ;)
When Kate asked me to shoot her wedding, I got so excited. Kate is one of those people everyone loves to be around and her husband Adam is the same-these two fit together so perfectly. I can't quite put words to this day, but to me it was perfection. These are the days that continue to remind me why I do what I do. Love you, Adam and Kate!
