Let me just say. This shoot was such an honor to shoot! I know that sounds odd, but Kristin and I are photog pals! :D Anytime one photographer asks another to take their picture, I just feel like it is SUCH a honor and I am truly humbled that Casey and Kristin asked me to take the FIRST pictures of them since their wedding in 2009 (of course, shot by Jennie Andrews)! Kristin is the amazing talent behind KLP Photography (if you go to her website, you will fall in love with her) and her hubs is one part of the awesome duo Nicholas and Keaton!!! 

So when Kristin asked me to take these pictures for her, I immediately had butterflies. And not just any butterflies..major monster butterflies! Luckily, Kristin and I are such great friends that it was SO relaxing and Casey kept us laughing throughout the whole session!!! I just LOVE when a couple is so real with each other, kisses each other, touches...plays! It makes sessions amazing!! Here's what I'm talking about! 

LOVE this photo!!!!

 Loved these FUN photos for Casey's big 3-0 bday!!! 
 Merry Christmas everyone!!!! I think this is cover photo worthy! ;)

So. This MAY be one of my favorite sessions to date! Why you ask? This couple = awesome. This location = so much fun. The crazy ideas they let me do = my job is AWESOME!!! I could not be happier when Jessica and Justin fell in my lap (thanks to my amazing December couple Keely and Scott)! When Jessica told me that she and Justin were already married, they just wanted some fun Christmas pictures I was SO excited!!! And when she mentioned blankets, hot cocoa and lights...I hit the roof! I immediately sent her links and ideas and she hadn't even booked me! Lol! It was meant to be! We fit perfect...they laughed at my ridiculous antics, they went along with anything I said, they wore the cutest outfits and they were crazy in love! What else is a girl with a camera to ask for??? 

So here is my super awesome Merry Snuggly, Loverly, Amazing Christmas session!!! <3

Adorable!!! Jessica's nose itched...and Justin was just too close! :D
 Sweetest picture EVER!!!!

Keegan, Cagney and Laura are probably the cutest family ever! They are just so stinking adorable. It took Keegan a couple of minutes to warm up to me (smart girl), but soon she was giggling, walking and laughing through the WHOLE session! Her cheeks and hair just kill me! She's soooo stinking cute!! 

I would love to commentate this post, but I have to pretty myself up for the last wedding of the season, so this will sadly be a commentless post! But its still awesome all the same! :D

My favorite!!!!

the day | Katie and Henry


I have been working on this blog post for a week! A.WEEK!!! It started out as having about 35 images, then grew to about 67, and ended with a grand total of 88 images (and that doesn't include collages). Whoa! Talk about not being able to control which photos are my favorite!!!

I met Katie and Henry through my favorite photographer in the whole wide world! She referred Katie to me and Katie and I had coffee for 2 whole hours!!!! I was giddy after I met Katie. I thought to myself, if she chooses me, I will be the happiest photographer in the world! Lol! And, oh geez, she did! 

Katie is amazing, she has style (to the nines), she is incredibly sweet, she is absolutely beautiful and her heart is probably one of the most genuine I've ever had the honor of meeting! I instantly just fell in love with her. I met Henry a few months later when he and Katie were in town. And let me just say, when I met Henry, I totally understood why they were marrying each other. They were perfect together. The way they held hands, and leaned on each other, the way they looked at each other and finished each other's sentences. Ok, I'm getting way too sappy, so I'll leave it at they had me excited for September 29th for months! 

So on with Katie and Henry's perfect day! 

The Bleak House absolutely NEVER disappoints.
Katie wore Henry's grandmother, Gigi's, pearl earrings. :D
Katie, you kill me! You're so beautiful!
I have to give the biggest shout out to my amazing second shooter Kristin! She blew me away during Katie's bridal portraits!
Having a second shooter is something that I highly, highly recommend to brides! While I was getting images of Henry getting ready and setting up the first look, Kristin grabbed this beauty on the right! 

The.Reason why I love first looks is right here. Takes my breath away!
 Love the difference in these two shots. The left was captured by me, the right by Kristin. LOVE them both!
So now off to the ceremony! I always try to give the Bride and Groom a little bit of time to chill out and relax right before the ceremony! This is the perfect time for me to run around and get those yummy detail shots! And Katie and Henry had some great ones! 
Isn't Henry so handsome?!?
 I absolutely adore these center pieces from Sassafras Flowers! I had two weddings with Allie in a row and she just absolutely blew my socks off! 
 Mr. and Mrs. Tucker!!!! Yay!
Love this one with Katie and Richard! 
 Love!!!! Henry and Nancy had one of the best mother/son dances!
 The below picture just doesn't do justice for the speech that Katie's father, Richard, gave. Richard is the kind of man that when he talks, people stop and listen. He said such beautiful and true words about both Katie and Henry that I truly felt honored to have listened to them and to have been apart of these two greatly loved people and their wedding day! 
Best cake cutting pictures EVER!!! Henry thought it would be hilarious to cut the top layer of the cake. The entire room erupted with a resounding "No!!!" Lol! 

 I went on an absolute B&W kick with this couple! I don't know what it was, but I just felt like they were SO classy, and to me, classy calls for black and white! Any of these would be a canvas on my wall! Eeek!
 Love Katie and Henry's guests!!! They were SO.MUCH.FUN!!! And I just absolutely love the bottom two pictures! Katie's brother laughing and then the picture of them both laughing! Perfect!
Katie and Henry! I cannot even begin to tell you how absolutely amazing you two are! You two are PERFECT for each other and I am absolutely tickled pink that you asked me to be your photographer! I am so happy I got to share your beautiful day with you!
