This day… how to sum it up. I’ve never been more awestruck by the beauty of a place in my entire life, just to top off the fact that everything about this wedding was an absolute dream. Matt and Jen contacted me about shooting their engagement session before a date/venue had been picked for their wedding. They knew it would either be in Washington or California, so naturally – I had to toss my name in the hat. I probably did as close to a back-flip as I will ever do when Jen contacted me saying they wanted to fly me out to CA to shoot their wedding!  Talk about dreams coming true!  But putting aside my excitement for a second ;), Jen and Matt are genuinely so in love, and I can’t tell you the honor that it was to be chosen to tell their love story. It’s been a long time coming for these two, and I’m wishing them a lifetime of happiness to come!

I’m not sure if I can put these two into words. From the first time I met them, Abby & Zach quickly became one of my favorite couples – just so filled with laughter and genuine joy. While chatting with Abby a couple weeks before the wedding, she was telling me about the day and all the details, and I was literally smiling from ear-to-ear just listening to her excitement. “We want lots of color, because that’s just us!”

Abby, you were so right, sister. You guys deserve all the bright, happy colors, because you two are seriously that kind of joy to everyone who is lucky enough to know you. Wishing you guys so much color and so many happy years to come :)

It took us a couple re-schedules to finally make this session happen with Allison and Derek, but I’m SO glad it worked out the way that it did! We met up at Quail Ridge Park and had a blast chasing the light and trekking through fields. And seriously, we could not have asked for a more perfect afternoon (much better than the rainy day we re-scheduled from the week before!)

Allison and Derek, thanks for being up for whatever field I asked you guys to hike through, lol! So excited to get you guys in front of my camera again in October <3

I can’t say enough good things about these two. Molly and Zach are two of the kindest, most genuine people you could ever hope to meet. The day after their wedding, Molly texted me info for a daycare center she recommends, because we’d talked about looking for my little one. The day after her wedding, guys! When most people are recovering, packing, and just generally being in love and married, Molly is going out of her way to help others. They literally laughed the WHOLE wedding day, and basically make me feel like the funniest person in the world (thanks guys! lol)  The love between these two is so real, the love they show to others is so real, & I’m so thankful I was able to capture a small part of it. Thanks again for having me be a part, you two. Wishing you many, many, many happy years with so much of your sweet laughter!

Emilie and Wes are two of the sweetest souls, and their wedding day at Cedar Creek could not have fit them more perfectly. The day was filled with SO much calm, laughter, serious love, and some of the most gorgeous details. I’ve mentioned their story a couple times, but a good love story is always my favorite. These two met for the first time at a friend’s wedding and left asking their friends about the other. How awesome is that?

And on this day, the wedding got to be theirs. Wishing you guys a lifetime of falling in love just like that, again & again.
