Cassandra + Mark {married}

“We think you’ll find that every woman in her heart of hearts longs for three things: to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, and to unveil beauty. That’s what makes a woman come alive.”
John Eldridge (Captivating)

On Cassandra’s wedding day, every fiber of her being was nothing less than perfectly captivating. Her planning for the day played out flawlessly, her attention to detail was impeccable, her physical appearance was so captivating that it simply spoke for itself. But what got me, and heck, even Preston the most as we were watching the events of she and Mark’s day unfold, was the level of raw emotion intertwined in everyone involved – and moreso, between the two of them. Every girl in her youth dreams of her wedding day. Take those pictures and ideas every little girl has and bring them to life. Well, scroll down to see what you get…

See what I mean? Every little detail, fairytale. And as little girls do, her flower girl was in awe (along with everyone else) of Cass’s princess dress. Although, she had a pretty adorable princess dress herself.

Another point very evident throughout the day, was the level of complete love and support Cassandra and Mark have. It was very clear to me as I spent the day with the bridal party just how loved and adored they are. From Cassandra’s close relationship with her mom, to the way both sets of parents spoke of the person their child was marrying, this day just simply embodied so much love. It is only my hope that we captured that love and adoration as organically as it was conveyed in front of us.

Cassandra and Mark, I could not feel more honored than to have had the opportunity to document such a beautiful day. There is no doubt in my mind that you two will live a long, happy life full of love and support. Never forget how to cherish moments in the way that you showed me on your wedding day.

Chelsey + Kaleb {Engaged}

You know those people who are just a huge ray of sunshine, constantly? Those people who make you feel absolutely FABULOUS about yourself because they laugh at near everything that comes out of your mouth? That’s Chelsey. Chelsey and I were childhood friends and I was very pleasantly surprised and honored to hear that she wanted me to document such a monumental time in she and Kaleb’s life. Kaleb, I met that day and instantly saw why these two are so perfect for each other. The laughter, smiles, and kisses were free flowing throughout the entirety of the session. The images speak for themselves of the happiness these two share…

Chelsey and Kaleb, you two are stunning and I know your life will be full of joy together. I am absolutely stoked to document more of your love story in May.
