Aaron & Angie's Beautiful Backyard Wedding

Aaron and Angie's wedding was so incredibly fun and gorgeous! They spent months preparing their new home for their big day and they did such an amazing job!  There are so many reasons why I absolutely loved their wedding! There was so much laughter, so many awesome details, and everyone had such a great time!

These two truly enjoy each other and I absolutely loved taking pictures for them! They were super excited about collaborating with me to create pictures that fit their personality and we had so many great spots to photograph them in! Aaron is a Lieutenant for the fire department and we were so fortunate to be able to use one of the ladder trucks and one of the homes they recently extinguished. A huge thank you to the Fire Department for accompanying us at burn site! And a super huge thank you to my assistant Jen who took such gorgeous photos and danced the rest of the night with me! Aaron and Angie it was such an honor to capture your beautiful wedding and to celebrate with you! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your day! 

Chris & Shannon's Family Church Wedding

Congratulations to this beautiful new married couple! 

Chris and Shannon's day was celebrated with family and the closest of friends at the bride's home church. Her mom and sisters helped her get ready as she prepared to see Chris for their "First Look".

Their "First Look" was so adorable! Shannon tip toed from behind and could not stop giggling!

Mom was all choked up in her moment with Shannon before her dad walked her down the aisle. Her sister and close family friend played a beautiful instrumental rendition of "Tale As Old As Time" from Shannon's favorite disney movie "Beauty and the Beast". 

Following the ceremony they held a dinner where friends and family together prayed a special blessing on the couple. Shannon and Chris spent time greeting everyone there while a game of He Said She Said was played and everyone took turns snuggling their sweet little baby girl. Dinner was incredible and great friends of theirs set up a spectacular photo-booth with a green screen! 

After dinner we had time for more pictures of the bride and groom!  And although it was pouring rain outside, the beautiful steel doors we had hoped to use were thankfully under a covered porch! Here are just a few favorites of the two of them! 

So happy for you Chris and Shannon! It was an honor to be a part of your day! Your families are so sweet and you have such a precious little girl! God bless you both as you begin this beautiful journey as newlyweds! 

And a special thanks to Ryan for helping out with lighting and to my wonderful assistant Erin! You are amazing!
