I had some more goodness at Lakeside Park this week! The Holderead family has some active little boys, which kept mom and dad busy (I’m sure they were exhausted after the session). But it made for some adorable photos!
Jed & Sarah had an intimate wedding in a flower filled park last weekend with their closest friends and family. The guest list of a wedding during COVID-19 may be small, but the beauty, sacredness and joy are still huge and fabulous! Congratulations guys! What a pleasure to capture your beautiful day!Both Sarah & Jed’s parents joined them in prayer at that start of the ceremony. So special!Sarah’s father led the group in a hymn. And then Jed’s father married them. Those are some amazing dad’s.These groomsmen VOLUNTEERED to climb this tree! That rarely happens! I love some fun groomsmen though!Can you believe the petals falling out of this tree! Nature’s confetti, falling just for us!Sarah’s engagement ring is a green sapphire from Thailand! I love how unique it is!God Bless your marriage, Jed & Sarah!
Congrats Andrew & Jenna! They had a beautiful, intimate, and holy ceremony last weekend with their closest family members (and me! woohoo!). I’m related to Jenna on my husband’s side, so that made this wedding SUPER special to be a part of!Jenna & Andrew had a First Look before the ceremony, so they could take time to admire each other and talk privately before the big moment!I love this shot so much. Both of their parents are just the sweetest and most loving couples!OKAY! Here comes the exciting part! Jenna and Andrew didn’t know that tons of family and friends organized to drive past them after the ceremony to wish them well on their wedding day! It was precious! I loved watching everyone cheer on the newlyweds!(One family member’s car battery died, so they walked-thru!)Andrew and Jenna had their siblings as their bridal party!God Bless your marriage!
It was beautiful shooting at the Botanical Gardens! We were able to get snow on the ground, a dessert scene and some tropical backdrops…all in one location!
Tessa & Jacob are getting married next June, and we took their fall engagement session this weekend. Thankfully we are all 3 good at going-with-the-flow, because our first location choice fell through a couple hours before the session, then our SECOND location was closed for construction when we arrived! But no problem! I’m so thankful we ended up shooting where we did! We had fall leaves, beautiful light, and a pretty church to set the scene for their unfolding love story!
My friend Angela & I dreamed up this Princess Unicorn Portrait session! Her family owns the adorable pony, and I brought the rest. It turned out SOOOO CUUUUUTE!!! We will definitely be planning some Princess Unicorn Mini Sessions in the spring! So be on the look out for sign ups if this is something your little lady would love!
The Pope family WON a portrait session with me when Krista entered a fund raiser raffle for the Troy Center School! I’m so glad our mutual love for the Troy Center brought us together for a family session on their beautiful property in Columbia City! The kitty really wanted to join in on a few photos! 😉 This pond is pretty special to the family, as Krista’s dad gifted the land to them shortly before he passed away last year. Now it holds so much sentimental value to them! I’m so glad we could take their family photos in such a significant spot!The jacket Krista is wearing belonged to her dad.Also! If you’re looking for a lab puppy for Christmas this year, these beautiful pups are having a litter very soon! And they’ll be ready to join your family for Christmas Eve!
Nathan is my husband’s cousin, so these two are pretty special to me! I love being the one to photograph family members special moments!
