  • Matt + Sara

Every bride worries about a rainy wedding day. It’s just a natural fear. But what most brides CAN’T do is just shake it off when that fear becomes a reality. It was raining on Friday for Matt and Sara’s wedding and when I arrived, I asked Sara has she was feeling.  Her response was this “I mean, I can’t change it!”. So true. So she went on with her wedding day as if the skies were blue and filled with white puffy clouds. I’m so thankful for that because great attitudes MAKE a wedding day. The bridal party, the familes, EVERYONE was excited about this day that had been anticipated for SO long and a little bit of drizzly rain wasn’t going to steal their joy!

  • Caleb + Rachel

sitting in V-Team meetings during my senior year at CNU and hearing Rachel talk about Caleb. Rachel and I served on the Vision Team for Intervarsity during our senior year and when you meet weekly with the same people over and over again, you can’t help but get really close to them. I think I learned more about Rachel in one year than I had in all 4 years of knowing her at college! We would meet on Tuesdays (I think, I don’t remember?! Ah! I’m getting old!) and we would start meetings by sharing about life. I would normally throw my hands up and announce that “I’m OVERWHELMED!! I can’t be in college and run a business and be engaged!!! I’m freaking out!!”.  That seemed to be the theme

  • Nate + Catherine

skies were overcast…. and I was excited!! What does that mean? Well let me tell you! It means I could shoot anywhere I wanted for Nate and Catherine’s First Look! FREEDOM!!! Woohoo! I love overcast days so much! The colors are brighter, the light is awesome and it’s not as HOT! This day was starting perfectly and it continued to get better and better. I started with the girls in an adorable country cabin down the road from the venue. I knew most of these girls from CNU and so I had been looking forward to this time with them for a while! Catherine casually walked around the little cabin with her hair and makeup done, not stressed at all. She is the epitome of a simple, classy bride. Her style was so HER
