Jodi & Joel = I Do

I can say this wedding was by far the most touching and emotional wedding I have ever attended. The day started a bit gloomy, the weather was cold and rainy but it did not bring anyones sprits down because this wedding has been long awaited by every single person there. Jodi and Joel didn’t want a big wedding, they didn’t want over done decorations and people there they didn’t know. They wanted exactly what they got a meaningful, sentimental, fun, easy going wedding in their backyard filled with the closest people in their lives.. in my words ( the best kind of wedding you can have ). The water works stared when these two got to see each other for the first time at their first look. The way  Joel looked at Jodi made my heart melt, you could see the love just radiate around them and I knew this was going to be an epic day with lots of tissues, but the moment that got everyone was when Joel walked with their daughter Maci down the isle. To be able to share they’re wedding day with Maci is truly a special thing, though she wont remember it they always will. The rain didn’t damper the ceremony we just went through as if nothing was happening and that care free feel continued into the reception followed right after. Everyone was free to walk about, talk and enjoy their evening. Music played , good food was served and you could hear people laughing all around and of course the speeches .. i’m sure they weren’t ment to be so tear filled but not one eye was dry in that house ( I found myself hiding behind my camera a few times just to cover the river flowing down my face). I left the evening with everyone on the amazing new deck that was built just before this wedding dancing away and enjoying the night.. the rain had let up and I knew they party would still be going in the early am . Congrats Jodi and Joel it was such a pleasure to be part of your wedding day and look forward in watching your family grow.

Jessica & James = I Do

Chris + Steph = I Do

5 years ago I got a message from this girl who was into makeup and hair and wanted me to photograph her girls for a show she was doing. That girl was Steph and from the first day I meet her I instantly loved her, not only is she talented in what she does she has the most amazing personality and caring heart. I was over the moon when Steph asked me to photograph her wedding with Chris, who by the way is equally an amazing person and so easy to get along with. When you talk to these two its like you have known them your entire life.  The wedding was filled with family and friends supporting these two to the fullest, you can feel all the love around you on the day, so much so I had to hold back crying a hand full of times. I just loved how they incorporated Chase, Steph’s son, into the vows giving him his own ring to bind them together and the speech Chris gave to Chase had me crying like a baby. I can’t wait to see this family grow when the time comes, i’m sure Chase has big plans for a little sibling.

 

Hutchinson Family

This is my big sisters beautiful family, I look forward every year in photographing them, though last year was a bit of a skip out due to a huge thanksgiving supper and some super lazy people afterwards we decided to wait till a later date, since winter hit us hard and neither of us are fans of the cold, when easter turned out gorg we ran with it… and did the shoot before dinner:)

Mike and Kate Maternity

Though it looks like fall, this was a very cold spring day. After the long winter I have been waiting for nice weather to finally photograph in, though the sun was out poor Kate was shivering to the bone but what a trooper she was. I can’t wait for this little baby to arrive, Mike is my first cousin and their baby will be the first in his family. We are all anticipating this little one and I can’t wait to photograph when he arrives .. yup its a he:)
