• Mandy's Bridals

it was just last month that we were shooting Jill’s Bridal session at the Farm.  It’s crazy how fast a YEAR can fly by! Now it’s Mandy’s turn and I’m SO glad we made this little shoot happen before their big day! It gave me a little taste of what Mandy and Josh’s Wedding was going to be like and I couldn’t WAIT! Mandy’s details were insane! She worked SO hard on her wedding in the midst of Student teaching and graduating and to be honest, I’m not sure how she did it!  Mandy ACTUALLY told Jill and I that she hadn’t really done much for the wedding, just made a few things here and there.

WHAT?! I showed up to their reception site to help set up and just laughed! The room was FILLED with birdhouses, vintage glassware, strips of bunting and tons of flowers! Mandy did an incredible job and I’m so SO honored that I could document her hard work. He bridal portraits were amazing and I would photograph her every week if I could! She’s just beautiful. She has one of those “model faces” that is so intense and yet so “soft” at the same time! Does that make sense?? You look at these portraits and let me know what you think!!! Mandy, I just love you! You make the most beautiful bride!! Jill thanks for letting us use the farm and for being our fabulous stylist! xoxo

xoxo, Katelyn

    I follow the blog all the time and I’m always impressed by your locations, but you’ve outdone yourself!
    I was so surprised to see Swannoa in the background!!! I knew it instantly! Fantastic location scouting and beautiful use of the grounds! It looks like they’ve done more restoration and groundskeeping since I was there last.
    I also went to CNU and recognize Mandy from school and am happy to see her happiness through your images.
