OH MY WORD GUYS.. These two completed my life. I. Love. Them. They were fun, energetic, lovey, knew how to pose and done the best fake laughs ever, because guess what?! THEY WEREN'T FAKING! We didn't stop laughing this entire shoot, and I couldn't have loved it more. These two were up for anything (even trekking through the tall grass on a side of a Missouri road), and to top it off, we finished up this session at the lake, but literally, not just at the lake, ON THE BOAT! There are a handful of things in life that are at the top of my favorite list, and that's 1. MY LORD and savior 2. my family 3. my fur babies 4. my job/clients and 5. the outdoors.. the list goes on with like sweets and coffee/hot tea, but you get the idea! I got to put two of my favorite things into one evening! SOOO, lets just my day was made and I think i need a million more sessions out on the lake! We celebrate their big day this weekend, and if it's anything as fun as this shoot, then I'M not gonna wanna leave! Check out this day with me, and don't forget to book a lake session with me ;)
Hayden and Clay were the epitome of what I look for in a bride and groom! Seriously... kind, laid back, fun, so in love, but most importantly, MY FRIENDS! I love these two. They love so big and it is so obvious in how they act with one another, but they also love their babies and make that so evident, too! Both of their kids were involved in the wedding in such a special way, and they both got to be right up next to mom and dad during the ceremony (which made for some sweet memories! I loved the charm this wedding had. Hayden done such a great job turning this family campsite into the perfect woodsy wedding! This family is genuine and so dear to me, so naturally I couldn't help but smile so big when they tied the knot! And lets just talk about the ring?! Is this real?! I"M OBSESSED!
In all honesty, I'd shoot their wedding over and over because they rock and they love and they are so special to me!
I hope you guys enjoy looking at their day as much as I'm loving reliving it through these images!
We were so excited to head to the Schumaker farm, and spend some time with these four! Like, are they such a pretty family OR WHAT?! It was so foggy, but we really wanted to have some cows in the background, THANKFULLY, they have some social cows because once he called for them they came right up to us! We ended the session at a different field, and we asked if it was okay if we just used it for any session, because this big tree is what I DREAM OF!
Seriously, give me all the perfect trees like this. I so enjoyed this session, and I cannot for you guys to see them too!
I cannot take it with these two! HEY beautiful couple!! I was so so pumped when Aryn reached out to me to do their engagement photos. I love the outfits, I love the lighting, I love the locations, I love this session! It was a dream for me because these two love, love big and you can see it in how they are together! They nailed all those perfect "Pinterest" poses that everyone want and love, but THEY GOT IT!
I want a million more sessions just like this one!
Also, did they nail the dip kiss orrrr did they nail the dip kiss?!
Just going to take a moment and talk about these two.. they were meant for each other! I don't know if I will ever or have ever seen a more in love and meant to be couple in my life! They were giddy for each other, they make each other laugh, they are awkward together (in the best possible way, and it's okay for me to say this because they know it and they love it and it's just something we shared that day + at the engagement shoot), they have fun, they love so so much it just overflows out of them for all of us to see! I was so happy to be part of their big day, their perfect day! I loved so much about this day, from the colors, the venue, the intimacy of it all! I wanna do it again, okay guys?! Like, let us repeat this day! Their reception was fun, people danced, the music was good, the cake pull ( Louisiana tradition ) was a first for me and I LOVED IT! I just ultimately had such a great time being here for this wedding day! AND, to boot, the weather could not have been any more perfect! It had rained and been cool all the days leading up to this day, and then the sky cleared up, the sun came out, the rain went away and this outside ceremony was dreamy!
PS- her ring is AMAZE
STOP IT RIGHT NOW with this perfect riverside wedding, literally it was all perfect...(maybe not the snake floating down the river during the ceremony [EEKKK] ) but everything: the long organic swag hanging in the tree, the bright and fun colors, the floral arrangements (which are extra special since they were made by hand from a long time family friend!), the exit in the old vintage car, NEED I SAY MORE? Okay, maybe one more, or two. The emotion that her dad showed, I COULDN'T DEAL. ALSO, I loved the guy singing "Ice Ice Baby" at the reception! SPEAKING of the reception, the foto volkswagen van?! the airstream bar?! GUYS SO SO FUN! I am so thankful for this season of my life with all of these special friends, clients, brides, grooms! You all make my life so much fun!
Thank you for letting me be a part of this SPECIAL day! You two make my job easy!
WOW WOW WOW.. This day!! GUYS, dream come true. These two love and love big, and I GOT TO CAPTURE IT?! Is this my job, for real?! Savannah and Riley were a booking we received at a bridal fair, and let me just say, I'M GLAD THEY CHOSE US! Sweet, kind, caring..are there other synonyms for sweet and kind because they fit the full description. I loved all the florals, her timeless dress, her long veil, the colors, and their prayer before the ceremony had me feeling all these feelings! This wedding was elegant and intimate and classy, it could not have been more perfect!
I still cannot believe I do this everyday for work, and more importantly that I form friendships that I wouldn't have found if it wasn't for this job! I love these two!
PS: the veil swoop was a SUCCESS with these two, and I'm so glad because she was so in love with her veil!
Kraig and Paige were a blast from the get-go. We loved everything about their beautiful wedding day, it was relaxed, full of laughter and all the details were spot on! I loved how laid back Paige was while we were doing hair and make-up, just like "yeah, I haven't been down to check it out yet." as the ceremony starts in about 15-20 minutes. Her dress was dreamy, perfect lace details, but the veil was my absolute favorite.. SO LONG and timeless and beautiful and I could go on and on. Kraig wore a suede brown jacket over a vest, but my favorite thing of all was that Paige had made all of them buy matching jeans to wear, and the guys could just not figure out the reason for that (it's the little details guys, the little details!!)
These two will forever be favorites of mine! I love them, they are the true definition of what I look for in clients!
