rachael + hunter were some of the easiest, sweetest, most genuine clients I've had and I'm so thankful to have captured their special day. their steadfast love was so evident, and even despite the pouring pouring rain (truly the most rain I've ever had on a wedding day!) they stayed perfectly calm and content. rachael + hunter, you must have allllllll the luck if rain on a wedding day is a good omen. so happy for you two and I'm excited to see what the Lord does with your new life together.
gabby + dylan made my dreams come true with these photos. I’m all about couples who are outdoorsy and adventurous, are up for have fun while shooting their photos, and are going for making their wedding day unique.
couples who bring beers to their engagement session are the best kind of couples. lauren + jonathon absolutely killed their session this week. when I arrived they had already pitched their tent and were ready to go, and we had so much fun capturing their love for camping, craft beer, and each other. their chemistry is undeniable, and I cannot wait for their wedding!!
MJ + Vaughn were my valentine's day giveaway winners, but after shooting with then I feel like I'm the real winner here! I love how these golden hour shots turned out, and we had a blast together (hence all the giggles from MJ). even when we got kicked out of our original shoot location (oops!), these two were flexible and we laughed it off, and to be honest I ended up loving the second location even more than the first! It feels so great to gift these photos & memories to these two, and I'm definitely inspired to do more giveaways!! follow along at @tylee.shay to catch the next one!
this springy wedding with pretty pastels was the perfect kick off to my 2019 wedding season! and I couldn't have asked for a better, more laid back, more in love couple than these two. if know Lauren & Wesley, you know the love of Christ. These two are completely on fire for God, and their faith was so evident in every part of their wedding day. my favorite moments were watching them pray and rejoice before the wedding (around a corner of course, saving the first look for the aisle), and watching them worship hand-in-hand after they were pronounced husband and wife. I am so inspired by their young love and Christ-centered relationship. thanks for letting us capture your day!
capturing proposals are some of my favorite things ever!! and it's even better when it's for good friends and in an amazing venue! ben + tabi, thanks for letting me capture this milestone for you! it was so fun helping ben plan out the perfect moment and watching it all come together. so excited for you two!!
these two are so crazy in love and so fearlessly chasing after God and it's amazing. megan & drew met and knew that this was a not only a good thing but a God thing. They will be getting married later this fall (heck yes to short engagements!!) and what I love about these two is their confidence in Christ. they met, they fell in love, they prayed until they knew this was God's plan for them, and they pursued it without looking back.
megan & drew reminded me that God's timing is the best timing. there's no sense in rushing love, but there's also no sense in withholding from it when you know it's meant to be. when God honors a plan, He paves the way for everything to fall into place.
megan & drew, I'm so excited for you two and everything that's in store! thanks for letting me capture this milestone for you.
donuts and succulents, what more could you ask for? every detail of this wedding was so well done and every minute of this day was so much fun (that wasn't supposed to rhyme but I'm rolling with it). eric & erin complete each other in every way, and they know how to throw a darn good party. so glad I could be a part of it!
