tanner & kaelyn: married

Warning: this will be one of the longest photo posts I’ve done..I’m practically sharing every single picture from this wedding.  It was freaking gorgeous.

Tanner and Kaelyn met in second grade. Cutest thing ever.  When you look through the photos, note the pearl necklace Kaelyn is wearing.  Tanner bought it for her in second grade.  Also note the flower girl’s pearl necklace..he bought it for his new niece just so she could wear it for the wedding as well.  Guys..there was so much love in this wedding, so many sweet details, I couldn’t take enough photos.
I’ve known Kaelyn for a few years; we worked together at CCU in the admissions department, and if there is anything I could say about her, it’s that she’s the most upbeat, positive, kind person you’ll ever meet.  And Tanner, I’ve only met him twice; the first time for engagement pictures and then for their wedding, but in those two meetings I learned enough about him to know he’s such a southern gentleman.  These two were brought together by the Lord, there’s no doubt about that.

Literally, I cried while editing these.  Mostly because I was there, I saw all the emotions and sweet looks, and that’s just what photos do: they bring you back to that moment.  But I hope as you look through these, you get a sense of that emotion, and how much fun it was to be there on their wedding day when they’ve pretty much been waiting to get married since the second grade.  (Just let it sink in how adorable that is.) ❤

our one year anniversary!

I really can’t believe it’s been a year since our wedding.  People say the first year goes fast but holy cow.  Fast is an understatement.  From the honeymoon, to moving out of our apartment and into our first home, to getting our crazy dog, Rue, and to all the mini-trips, this year has just flown.  We are past the newlywed stage for good..no more “aww, so fresh” comments.  Now it’s onto the “ohh, babies anytime soon?” comments. (Which happens all the time).

We decided it would be a great idea to get away for a few days to celebrate this milestone and to just spend some time alone together.  Being in ministry, you don’t get a ton of that alone time, so we figured this was the perfect chance to take a break and refresh.  What better place than a secluded cabin in Brown County, Indiana.  Seriously, I was throwing a tantrum when we had to leave this morning..it was that great.  God blessed us with perfect weather (a lovely 70 degrees and sunny) so we were able to get out and hike, shop, explore..all that fun stuff!  I thought I’d share some of the photos from our trip, since that’s kinda what I do 🙂

DAY 1.

 downtown Nashville (Indiana, not Tennessee), a quick trip to the national park & our lovely cabin

day 2.

I got up with the sun to get some sunrise shots..so worth it.  We made breakfast and relaxed before heading off for a morning of hiking in the park.  It was so perfect outside, didn’t even need a jacket.  Then we finished the day off with a trip to the town for dinner. (Which, if you ever go to Brown County, be forewarned that it’s kind of an old people town.  Everything was closed so we ended up having to eat at this old country restaurant that was closing in 20 minutes…we still had fun though.. haha)DSC_0096 DSC_0097 DSC_0100 DSC_00100 DSC_0119 DSC_0121 DSC_0122 DSC_0124 DSC_0128 DSC_0129 DSC_0133 DSC_0134 DSC_0148 DSC_0154 DSC_0157 DSC_0162 DSC_0163 DSC_0166 DSC_0170 DSC_0175 DSC_0208 DSC_0210 DSC_0213 DSC_0220 DSC_0221 DSC_0224 DSC_0227 DSC_0230 DSC_0231 DSC_0234 DSC_0241 DSC_0245 DSC_0246 DSC_0251

day 3.

Today..SO not ready to leave.  After the little heat wave, it stormed all night and then snowed this morning.  It was so pretty in the cabin, though.  We packed up, headed back to town and finished our getaway with coffee and breakfast at this cute little coffee shop called the Daily Grind.  DSC_0254 DSC_0256 DSC_0258 DSC_0266 DSC_0268 DSC_0271 DSC_0276

Really, this post is more for myself.  Matt and I had so much fun this weekend, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.  There is so much to say about our first year, I’ll have to do it in another post I guess.  But at least I found some time to share the photos! 🙂

Victor & Olivia: Engaged

I am SOO behind on posting..it’s been a busy couple of weeks but never late than never, right?

This engagement session was quite an adventure!  I drove all the way to Columbus, Ohio, having no idea where I was going had it not been for the GPS on my phone…except my GPS stopped working with about an hour left of the drive.  I am so thankful for my amazing hubby who got on Google maps, looked up where I was (because I seriously had no clue), and directed me through country and farmland to get me to my shoot.  Needless to say I was a bit flustered when I arrived.

This lovely couple took me in, introduced me to their adorable family (or re-introduced me…I shot the bride’s brother’s wedding last Christmas, so I already had an idea of how lovely this family really was) and off we went to shoot some photos on Olivia’s grandparent’s farm.  I can’t say enough about how sweet Victor and Olivia were to photograph.  They are so obviously in love that just about every photo I took was of a giggle or loving glance. It’s couples like this that make me feel so blessed to be a photographer; to be able to capture these moments for someone is something I really can’t explain, so you’ll just have to see for yourself.
