I found them! | 101010 Earrings

  • Wedding Wednesday

a long time coming. I’m not a shoe girl, or a purse girl, I’m a JEWELRY girl! I love it! I buy unnecessary amounts of it and the majority of my jewelry box is TEAL.

However, I also LOVE getting to know my brides and forming relationships with them.  I met Tim and Emily over a year ago for their engagement session and I fell in love with them.  They were married last August at the Historic Kinloch and after spending the day with them and their families, I felt like part of the family! They were so welcoming and excited for their pictures!

Good friends! I loved her and I loved her story. Annamarie and Ryan have such a refreshing and rich friendship and that makes their relationship so genuine.  As soon as we started their session, they were laughing at each other….(photographer’s dream).  If it wasn’t 90 degrees with 90% humidity,
