Kirsten + Dustin | Wedding

On October 25th, 09′ we were able to share and capture some beautiful moments on Kirsten and Dustin’s wedding day. Everything about this wedding was so wonderful to photograph… and thanks to Kirsten, she made sure we had enough time to capture all the details of her special day. Kirsten and Dustin – it was an honor to be a part of a day you’ll never forget… and to capture the love you both share for each other. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness.

If you missed their engagement session or Kirsten’s beautiful bridals, make sure you check them out!

Enjoy their memories.  

One thing that totally made my day – Kirsten’s reception dress {Left Photo} 

The {Left Photo} is my favorite shot of the day… I so love the mood and the lighting. Also, instead of a veil, Kirsten wore this beautiful hair piece. I loved it… a lot. 

The flowers were incredible!!

Details are one of my favorite things to photograph at weddings!

So I have to admit my jaw dropped when Dustin whipped out his guitar during the ceremony and started singing to his future bride. So sweet.

I love this of Kirsten… beautiful!

The cake was KILLER!

2009… A reason to be thankful.

This post is for all my amazing clients we’ve had this year. I’m so incredibly thankful that you chose me to be a part of so many priceless moments in each of your lives! It’s been an amazing experience… so thank you, for being a part of something I’m passionate about.  To my 2010 clients, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share some laughs, build some friendships, but mostly… capture your story.

Wishing you all a very blessed New Year!

The image below is a look back at just a few of my many fab clients of 2009…


Merry Christmas | 2009

It is as if God the Father is saying to us:

“Since I have told you everything in My Word, who is My Son, I have no other words that can at present say anything or reveal anything to you beyond this. Fix your eyes on Him alone, for in Him I have told you all, revealed all, and in Him you will find more than you desire or ask. If you fix your eyes on Him, you will find everything, for He is My whole Word and My reply. He is My whole vision.”

That was written on our Christmas card this year… and I wanted to share it, because it reminds me why Christmas is Christmas…there are so many wonderful things about Christmas time I truly love, but the true meaning of Christmas, is everything to me. Wishing each of you a beautiful, blessed Christmas and New Year.

Kirsten | Bridal

I looked up the word Elegant in the dictionary and this is what I read:  Pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner. I like the way that sounds and that describes my next bride I get to share with you. Meet Kirsten!! I adored her whole look when she showed up to rock out her Bridal Session!! Not only did she look stunning, she was such a trooper thanks to the massive amount of mosquitos that decided to join us for our shoot. Nevertheless, she still rocked and we had an awesome time with her!! Thanks again Kirsten!



Details!? Yes please!


Really love these. . .



Her bouquet was breathtaking! Just LOOK at it!!!



I think Kirsten’s look really fit this location beautifully. I love my brides 🙂


Favorite shot of the day!!!! Eeeek!




I’ll end on this. . .

I’m hoping to really accomplish a lot this coming week and drop some love on the blog!! So please check back because we have some pretty awesome shoots to show. . . everything from babies, kids, families, seniors, bridals, day after sessions, and mostly weddings!

Happy Thursday!!!
