Moments Make the Day Magic

At the wedding of Lexi and Rex, there was plenty to celebrate.

It was the most perfectly beautiful fall day.

Lexi’s dress was amazing.

Her flowers were so lovely.

The ladies were wonderful.

Rex and the gentlemen.  Handsome as they waited for the day to unfold.

The most special parts of the day were found in quick moments that would leave lasting memories.

The quiet moments before…

The significant moments during the ceremony at St. Mark

A final word to her father.

…and this moment right after. This one was very special.

What an amazing day!

An oh there were plenty of moments at the reception at Riverside as well. This on makes me smile. The ladies! Here’s the bouquet toss –

As the ladies went for the catch.

Congratulations Lexi and Rex!

For the Love of Horse

I always consider myself so fortunate to be able to see our young people from time-to-time when new pictures are needed and I think it’s especially perfect when the person happens to be a young lady with a love for horses similar to my own love for them.

It’s also especially wonderful to think that I first met her when she was very new to life some time ago and to see the truth behind what 14 years is. It is growing up. It is a reflection of kindness. It is beauty.

It is also the result of two wonderful people.

Thank you for sharing your time and your beautiful daughter with me. It is always my pleasure to see you.  Please find the rest of your session photos here.

When the Sky Dances at Your Wedding

The wedding of Roberta and Eric was breathtaking!  This is true because of the gorgeous details, the wonderful people, and the beautiful couple who were married that day.  It is also true because the sky decided to paint the day with dark rolling stormy clouds and also with a vibrant, bright sunset, in a moving splendor – a dance made up of clouds and sun rays.

The day began in a quaint salon where Roberta was getting ready.

Their wedding was to take place in an open field under the shade of a tree with flowers of vibrant colors and a curtain of clouds.

She was hidden away under a canopy while last minute preparations took place.

Soon, the ladies were ready.

The gentlemen were ready on cue.

Right before the guests arrived, the sky presented us with some rain and even a bit of lightening. As if on schedule, it stopped just perfectly long enough for the guests to arrive, the ceremony to be held, and the photos to be taken.

The ceremony was perfect and the tree seemed to stand tall and proud.

Almost the entire wedding party was photographed. (The one exception was captured in a moment of escape).

Eric and Roberta had the most spectacular arrangements of sky throughout the day.

And right in the middle of everything, this happened…

And within seconds, there was rain.

Then, moments after that, sun and rain mixed!

Congratulations, Roberta and Eric! You truly had the most beautiful weather I could have imagined. It was a true honor to be a part of your day. Please find the rest of your online album here.
