At The Apple Orchard: The Chilcote Family

It's always such a treat to see this family! We had a lovely time at Meckley's apple orchard and I can't wait to go back this Friday!  The best time for apple orchard pictures are when the flowers bloom in spring April/May and in September when the apples are still on the trees. Ilike to keep an eye out for when the peek times are. So if you love what you see here, definitely contact me in advance to make sure you get the best out of the orchard experience. Happy autumn!

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.

Pastor Family Portraits

I simply adore families who laugh, love, and play together! And the Pastor family is definitely one of these families! 

Getting to see this family and to watch their little ones grow through the years is such a treat! The multi colored brick wall was a super lucky find and their outfits could not have been more perfect for it! So grateful for the beautiful weather and fun we had! 

When I arrived at our meeting spot their kiddos were all ready for the camera with lots of adorable poses! They had fun playing copycat with daddy, pretending to be the Incredible Hulk, and showing me how high far they can jump (see below)! There were so many hilarious silly kid poses I couldn't include them all in this post! And I have to say my face almost hurt from smiling while I was editing!

Before The Summer Ends

The evening with Kacey and her mom was absolutely perfect! She is such a lovely young woman and it was so much fun picking the perfect spots and poses for her Senior Remake Session. The soft sunlight and the fresh scent of the lavender and mint growing around us made for such a cool end of the summer experience! Kacey you and your mom are so cute together and I am very glad to have been able to spend more time with the two of you and to help you create the senior portraits you've always wanted!
