Chris & Jessica's Black Barn Vineyard Wedding

Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!

When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were! 

Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together. 

At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards. 

Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.

And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!  

Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day!  You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together! 

And last but not least, THANK YOUS!
A huge thank you to my incredible colleague, dear friend, and 2nd shooter, Jennifer Jacobs! You are my 2nd half! My mind reader! You do such amazing work! Thank you to Marilynn & Travis for having the cutest kids ever! To the staff at the Oak Tree Lounge, Thank you for the beautiful display of cocktails, wine, and s'more bar. You kept everyone so happy! To Wendy, Lloyd, and the staff of Black Barn Vineyard & Winery, thank you for how you took care of everyone, everything, and created such a beautiful space to celebrate! I hope to work with you all again!

Alex and Alexandra's Wedding Day

Spring peaked just in time for Alex and Alexandra's beautiful Michigan wedding! These two have traveled from Michigan to Texas and back again to be with each other and could not wait for this amazing day to come! 

While an intimate group of friends and family gathered in the sanctuary, Alexandra's father waited to see her in her wedding dress. His expression was priceless!

After a beautiful ceremony, family hugs, and pictures we headed to downtown Jackson for pictures of just the two of them.

There were so many beautiful touches to their day including the beautiful bouquets that Alexandra made with a bracelet in memory of her brother.

MJ Family Portraits

So glad I was able to catch up with this wonderful family last Wednesday before their daughter heads back to college. The evening was just perfect for pictures and it was fun getting to capture a bit of what they all love to do together. 
Thank you MJ family for having me out to your beautiful home. It was a lot of fun and I just adore your little dog! Blessings to you as you all start another new school year! 

Summer Fun At the Park: Family Portrait Session

Cuteness! Cuteness! Cuteness!

Yesterday these little ones simply stole my heart! This family is so sweet and loving together and I just loved watching how Larissa and Aaron truly enjoy and adore their kids. Just looking back at these I can't help but smile. Aaron and Larissa I am so grateful to have met your sweet family. It was a sincere pleasure to capture these moments for you. Take care and blessings as you send your little J off to Kindergarten! 

Back To The Orchard

It is always wonderful to take portraits in a place that holds a lot of meaning for my clients. For this beautiful family, some very important moments have taken place in the setting of an apple orchard! I have been wanting to take portraits at an orchard and was very excited to know it would be the perfect way to incorporate a bit of their story and to know that every time they look back at their portraits they would be reminded of such key moments in their life. 

Mr. and Mrs. F you are such a fun and easygoing family! I absolutely loved taking portraits for you! Thank you again for choosing me to photograph your beautiful family! God bless you as you continue in the work that you do! ~Lindsay
