Natalie+Michael.

Ok, Natalie knows how to pick shoes! Let's start there. 😁 Her fancy shoes were SO feminine and pretty and her custom stitched converse were SO cool! I LOVE a practical bride! Wedding days are long and who wants to be uncomfortable!?!?

One thing I love about this couple is their faces. I know, I know that sounds weird BUT I love how their faces tell it all. SO much expression and the face's they gave each other through out the day were priceless. Even during their ceremony their faces lit up, the excitement was so obvious and their smiles were plastered on. 

Natalie has the best little nose scrunch around! In fact, I'd bet when she was little she made the exact same face. It's the cutest! AND Michael. He's about as sweet as they come and couldn't love Natalie more. The way these two interacted was so perfect. They joked, they laughed and they had fun.

The night ended and the beautiful Windows on Washington. I love the feel and natural light there and you can't beat string lights! My favorite! Natalie and Michael's reception was SO FUN. They have a killer group of family and friends. You can't go wrong with Thriller, YMCA, Tie Limbo and giant pretzels! Congratulations you two!

The Puppy.

You want to bring a puppy!?!? SURE!!!! Bring the puppy! You can't go wrong with a puppy! Oh, and Lucy and Sam, you're not so bad yourselves. :) Actually, you guys blew it out of the water this time with your super smiles and bow tie. You couldn't have nailed this session more! It's always a blast to hang with this bunch!

Vincent.

What a cutie! This brand new two year old took a few minutes to warm up to me but once he did we were golden! It always helps to be in a comfortable space, like his own home, to get some real personality to shine through AND it was the perfect location on this super hot and humid July day! Thanks for hanging out!

Katherine+Jeff.

This summer wedding started at St. Francis Xavier Church. The church was stunning and so was Katherine. 

The inside of the church was beautiful! Katherine walked the long aisles with her Mom and Dad to meet her soon to be husband Jeff. Their face's beamed with excitement!

Katherine and Jeff got engaged at Forest Park so we returned there for pictures. Their wedding party was filled with family and close friends. It was a super hot day but we worked quickly and everyone were troopers!

After pictures, Katherine and Jeff had a little down time with their wedding party and then met up at Windows on Washington. It was a PARTY! I'm not sure I've ever seen a bride and groom dance so much! It was a fun time for all and a night that won't be forgotten! Congratulations you two!

Julie+Austin.

Oh man, these two were the sweetest! It's always SO nice when families know each other and love each other and these families go WAY back!

Julie and Austin's parents were in each others weddings. In fact, Julie and Austin were born days apart and grew up together. 

Their wedding party was the best! You would have thought these guys were famous based on the amount of people who knew them and honked as they drove by while we were taking pictures in downtown Washington. Oh, and side note, Austin has the BEST laugh! 

Their reception was filled with beautiful treats made by their family and friends. It was so clear how loved these two were. One of Julie's sisters gave a tear filled toast and Austin's groomsman gave the best back story on these two ever! The day was perfect! Congratulations you two!

Angela+Dominick.

Holy Moly! Beautiful light and perfect couple right here. Angela has the prettiest face ever, am I right?!? Actually, I know I'm right. She's just SO stinkin' cute, and then there's Dominick. You see, he likes to give me a hard time. He attempted to be the star of this shoot and I had to put him in his place. He's a hoot and I LOVE that. Nothing better, and he couldn't have been more fun. I can't wait for their wedding day in 2019! (That's right! I'm booinking 2019 NOW so don't delay!) Side note: The more I mess with you the more I like you and these guys got messed with. :) Thanks for a super fun evening you two! It truly was a blast!

Allison+Ryan.

This wedding started out at the Chase Park Plaza. The bride and groom got ready and headed off to the church for their first look. 

They wanted to see each other before the ceremony but they also wanted the chance to see each other at the aisle for the first time. They met at the church and Ryan waited at the front for his soon to be wife. She made her entrance and walked all the way down the long aisle. After they chatted for a bit and nerves were calmed the wedding day festivities began.

The day was perfect and the sun was shinning. We went to a few locations for pictures. The wedding party was top notch and so much fun!

The day concluded back at the Chase Park Plaza. The room was gorgeous and they couldn't wait to get the party started. We did sneak out side for a bit, to the roof top, for some killer sunset pictures. The night was a blast and I'm pretty sure the day couldn't have been more perfect. Congratulations you two!

Caitlyn+Trent.

The perfect spring day welcomed this wedding. The sun was shinning and the ground was dry which was a nice change in this 2018 spring. Silver Oaks Chateau was ready for the festivities to begin and so was Caitlyn and Trent.

The ceremony took place on the back patio and these two were married by Caitlyn's brother. 

Caitlyn and Trent were referred to me by several of their closest friends, whose weddings I photographed, which is always a huge compliment.  (So a huge THANK YOU to them!) It also makes the day so much fun! This group was a blast and full of laughs.

The night ended with a beautifully decorated reception that was filled with family and friends. These two couldn't be more loved. Congratulations you two!

These guys are hoot! I think I first met this bunch when Emmett was a fresh new little one, so they've been around for a while. I LOVE how much personality they have and how their faces show their exact personalities. I love some personality filled kids! 😁

Guys, you will never regret bringing some extra family members along for your session. NEVER. Oh, and parents aren't the only ones who can come. See that super cute lady at the top in the middle?!? Well, she kind of stole the show. That is great grandma and she was the best. Don't forget the  special people in your lives, bring them.
