The Paarlbergs

'I can't wait to marry him someday!' were Rachel's words as we cleaned the storage room in the back of the New Covenant bookstore. She would go on and on on how he was 'so hot' and we would giggle and tell each other our dreams for our future with our beaus. She was only 16, and typically for a lot of girls that age, it's just a silly fantasy, but I knew they would get married. Why? Because I honestly think she would kill for him, and really, after FINALLY meeting him a month ago, I can't blame the girl.

When Rachel got ahold of me and told me that she was engaged and wanted me to shoot their wedding, I was so ecstatic! Finally this dream was coming true and I got to be apart of it.

Rachel and Tyler Paarlberg, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for allowing me to document your day. It truly was an honor to be apart of the day, and I pray for all the happiness in the world for you both! Can't wait to see you when you get back to show you the rest of your photographs.

There table decorations were SO pretty! I loved it :) Simplicity is a friend of mine.

P.S...I just realized that I added a lot of kissing photos :) But that was literally them the whole It was so fun to watch their love!

Have a Happy Monday, all!

Kelsey's Senior Pics

Where do I even begin with Kelsey?! I think it's safe to start with the fact that she is a goofball. In a good way. Of course. As you will see by her photos.

I have known Kelsey for a number of years, but it hasn't really been until recently that we have really had the opportunity to know each other fairly well. We have decided that we are the same person. Only 5 years apart. It's strange, I know.

Kelsey, you are GORGEOUS! I love how you can transform from "I can't get dirty, because I'm cute and dainty" to "get out of my way, or I'll run you over with my motorcycle." I had such a fun time hanging out with you, laughing, talking about our moms, and making you feel awkward by making serious faces. Enjoy :)

Wright Family

Oh.....the Wrights :) I can't say anything but good things about this family! Fun kids, cool parents, and a beautiful new grand baby. This day was a little chilly, so toward the end we moved inside for the little one, Aiden. Such a fun day! Enjoy the pics :)

Amanda + Andrew

You know those moments where you start laughing and you just can't stop and what you are laughing about is over nothing? That was pretty much my time with Andrew and Amanda. Early in the session, something happened (still have no idea what...) and these two were SO giddy that anytime someone said 'monkey' they wouldn't stop gut-laughing. It.Was.Awesome.

I had the opportunity to shoot their family earlier this year and had a blast! So, I was stoked when Amanda asked me to do their engagement session, and next October, their wedding. You two are so sweet together, and I can't wait to shoot your leopard flats and Chucks next year :) Enjoy the photos.


Enjoy the rest of the wedding planning, love birds!

Let's Do This...

So I had every intention to update this today...BUT, photos won't load and I'm getting irritated. With that being said, I will just say what I was going to say and update the photos soon. Cool? Cool. My week last week=AWESOME. Last week was a car windows rolled down, music blasting, arm hanging out the window, singing at the top of your lungs kind of week. The weather was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! This past Thursday I spent a good portion of the day at a local cafe, catching up on some much needed work. Later on in the day I met up with an awesome AWESOME band, One Voice of Worship, and had the privilege of doing a photo shoot with them for their debut album coming out later this month. SO exciting for me! We had so much fun! Both are married and brought their lovely wives along with them. One of the couples has a son named James, and I couldn't resist taking some photos of him. Whenever there are cute babies, I melt. I thought I'd post a couple of my personal favorites of 1VOW (short for One Voice of Worship) for you all to see! And, well, maybe some of little James, too! Wish these would upload, but hoping it will work tomorrow. Just wanted to at least have 2 posts on here :) Later, yo.
