“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known–and even that is an understatement.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
Megan and Jordan booked me quite some time ago. While lengthy engagements aren’t the norm for wedding photography bookings, I absolutely soaked in the time that gave me to truly get to know the two of them. After two engagement sessions and about two years of planning, watching them say “I do” truly felt like I was watching close friends.
Megan possesses the most gentle, radiant soul–one that just gleams to everyone she touches. After having spent some time with them already, I am constantly in awe of the respect and nurturing affection for one another Megan and Jordan possess in the most refreshing of ways. Gentle, kind, and so clearly ready to spend the rest of their lives with no one else but one another.
Her soft lace + tulle dress matched Megan’s personality so perfectly.
Megan and Jordan love Christmas, so having their friends and family celebrate with them at such a historic Southern venue with holiday accents was what Megan envisioned from the beginning.
We took portraits right at “golden hour,” which had me nerding out in excitement like a little school girl. Whenever my brides are able to make a timeline for portraits that matches so effortlessly with sunset it makes my photographer heart sing so loudly.
Megan’s flowers were done by Claire of Blumen Lendle. I work weddings with her often and always does impeccable work.
We had about 5 minutes of extra time after portraits, so I snuck off with Megan to capture these. I’m so grateful for timeline planning that allowed us a few extra moments. These are some of my most favorite shots taken of a bride ever, ever.
I’m not usually big on red, but oh my the deep colors goooooot me with all the feels.
I deemed it important to identify the culprits responsible for the remaining photographs…
And what’s a good night of dancing without a little friendly competition to see who does the best Dirty Dancing rendition? Clearly, nobody puts Megan in the corner…
Megan and Jordan, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to watch and document the two of you on this journey. I cannot wait to see where this pretty little life takes you next.
