• Adam + Ruth | Part II

I’ve never been an incredible writer  and sometimes it frustrates me when I have to try to describe my couples to you because I just can’t seem to do it justice. That’s how awesome they are! I usually try to paint a picture of their relationship and explain some of their story but I think their pictures capture “them” so much better than my words.  However, there were moments during their wedding day that Adam and Ruth just made me smile. One instance was when they exited the church, both smiling from ear to ear, Ruth stopped walking and exclaimed “Adam! We’re Married!!!!!”.  Another would be when Ruth accidentally hit Adam in the face with her bouquet during their portraits! (It made for a great laughing shot!)


Overall, I just loved watching the two of them celebrate the beginning of their new life together. It’s such a beautiful thing and you would think that after all of the weddings I shoot, that the excitement would get old but there is no chance of that happening! My job is such a privilege and is so rewarding.  I’m so thankful that I was able to be a part of Adam and Ruth’s big day and I can’t wait to share the rest with you! So here are a ton of favorites! Enjoy!


We started their portraits in an old chapel beside the church.  I love old things and so did Ruth… perfect match. I loved the way these turned out!

Probably one of my top 3 favorite portraits!

#1 favorite!

Lovvvveeeee her veil blowing and the composition! This is one of those shots you don’t realize you got until later….and when you see it, it makes you soooo happy!

HAD to add these next two in! Ruth and her dad busted out Blues Brothers during their “Daddy/Daughter” dance.  It was so awesome!

Love it.
