  • Andrew + Maddie

The pastor told everyone to have a seat and then he proceeded to say how awesome and uniquely special this ceremony was to him because these two were two of their own. Andrew and Maddie’s families both attend this church and are a part of the same church family. Their pastor shared that when two homegrown kids grow up and decide to get married, it’s such an honor to be a part of their story and I would have to agree. Andrew and Maddie’s ceremony reminded me so much of our own. From getting married in their home church with all of their friends and family surrounding them to their worship team friends leading the music to Andrew’s tears as Maddie walked down the aisle, it took me back to our wedding day. There is something so powerful about that walk down the aisle. Andrew and Maddie had the sweetest first look….but nothing will beat Andrew’s face as he watched his bride walk down the aisle to him during their ceremony.

These precious moments are our favorite to capture!! And Andrew and Maddie had a lot them!! However, not only do we love the sweet, emotional moments, we also love the PARTY. Dancing shots are FUN… especially when you have a super EXPRESSIVE bridal party. Now let me just say this… these two have some CRAZY fun friends… and you’ll be able to see what I mean when you scroll through their reception pictures! Hilarious!

I always ask my brides “Isn’t this like the BEST DAY EVER?!”… and they always agree! It was so easy to see that this was one of the best days of their lives. From the beautiful toasts to the groomsmen’s surprise dance, they had it all. What a dream day! Andrew and Maddie, it’s such an honor to not only call you friends, but to be your wedding photographers!! We absolutely loved being a part of the FIRST DAY of your marriage and we wish you decades of happiness!!! God has big plans for you two and I’m so excited for you to experience life as a TEAM!! Love you both!!!!

    They are so cute… I love the touch of purple throughout the day. I’m slowly learning how to incorporate those kinds of things in images to make everything look more cohesive! You always do it so well!
