• Joseph + Perrin

As soon as I met them at their engagement session, I knew that they were one of those couples that came into our lives for a reason. We were over booked for this year but we still had this past Sunday available. Joe and Perrin’s wedding just happened to be right the middle of our craziest season… #9 of 19 weddings in a row. Any photographer would admit that in the middle of a long stretch, you need something to inspire you and renew your love for your work…. Joe and Perrin’s wedding did just that. Their love for one another and everyone’s deep love for them was so thick in the air, you could feel it. These two have such an incredible story and contagious joy. As Michael and I photographed their amazing wedding day, I kept turning to him and saying “Don’t you just love them?!”.

Just being present on their wedding day and celebrating with them was a gift in and of itself. As I watched them say their vows, Perrin would squeeze Joe’s hands and they would both smile as big as they possibly could. Their wedding day was a day of joy, worship and victory.  It’s so apparent that these two were made for one another.

Even though I barely know them, I left their wedding day feeling like part of their family and part of their story… and as a photographer, there is nothing more rewarding.  So enjoy this sweet wedding today on the blog! I’ve been so excited to share it this week! Joe and Perrin, thank you for allowing us to capture your day!! We were so blessed and inspired by you guys in so many ways.  Enjoy the honeymoon and welcome to married life!!! xoxoxo

Perrin’s ring is just gorgeous!

The tears started before the dress was even on:)

Love this! You wouldn’t believe how fast we were able to shoot these massive group pictures! They have awesome friends that listen to me! ha! 

Not posed at all…kidding. Of course I told them to do a fake laugh… and they nailed it!

I said “Ok, Man hug!” and this is what I got. haha It’s a first.

Love this!

Nothing more powerful than being prayed for by all of your closest friends at one time. :)

Love this mother/daughter moment!


And we made it to the creek JUST in time to catch the light before it left us!
