University of Dayton Engagement Session

It doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes I make connections with my couples that amaze me (especially because I'm an introvert and don't always know how to do that lol).  We might only see each other once or twice before their wedding day, but somehow they're texting me photos of their wedding dress and asking my opinion on sparklers or veils and even congratulating me on my own engagement!  When my couples 100% trust me and love my work, our connection is so much deeper and the images are so much better!  It's really that simple and beautiful, I think.  So here's to you Alex and Matt.  I'm so glad we found each other and September 22nd cannot come soon enough!!   

Madeline & Buddy | Kingsport, TN

This June wedding in the mountains of Kingsport, Tennessee was one of my absolute favorites I have ever documented.  Madeline and I went to high school together, and because we graduated in a class of five (homeschooled), it wasn't hard to get to know each other!  She is the sweetest soul, and though college naturally brought separation, it was so much fun to celebrate her marriage to Buddy.  And holy cow, these two.  Their ceremony was the most emotional thing I've experienced while shooting weddings.  So many tears.  So much excitement.  So much love for each other and the Lord.  During worship, Buddy looked over at Madeline - singing with her eyes closed - and just smiled and looked down with a look of pride and joy on his face.  It is an honor to capture, and in some ways actually be a part of, those little moments that few others notice on a wedding day.
