The recent wedding of Sarah and Philip began in the morning hours at the Something Blueberry Farm with so many perfect details, smiles and plenty of sunshine.
The beautiful lace covered dress was waiting in the dressing room, carefully ready for Sarah.
The shoes were perfect for the outdoor, country wedding.
And the rings sparkled in the bright and welcome sunlight.
The flowers were ready to be held.
And so many perfect things were waiting…
…Waiting for the day to begin, including a beautiful bride.
I love sharing these quiet moments before the crowds arrive and the music begins. These minutes of excited calm before the vows and the food are so special. Images from the rest of the day will be here soon.
I’m always honored when one of the young people in my world wants me to photograph a senior picture session.
In thinking back, I’m pretty sure I met this beautiful and extremely talented young lady while she was holding a chicken.
I have seen her teach young people anatomy and I have seen her win trophies for her knowledge and her skills. She’s able to soothe an upset turkey to the point of falling asleep in her arms. Her pup adores her and sits as well as stays when asked for as long as asked.
She is a teen leader and an inspiration to many young people who look up to her for guidance.
She has a way with animals for certain and she can bend the strings of a cello to fill the air with the most beautiful sounds.
Talented – that is no doubt. Beautiful, no question.
Congratulations, Lacey, on your senior year. Your talents have helped me out many times! Please find the rest of your online album here.
I’ve been busy booking things for the future and am all sorts of excited about the weddings coming up for the season! I will be in barns and beautiful halls and fabulous train depots and out in fields with some of the most beautiful people I have met.
I have also been busy enjoying the fresh spring air and daydreaming about all of the beautiful flowers that will soon be blooming…
So, with brides, weddings and flowers on my mind, I thought I would post a small sample of some pictures of past wedding bouquets in hopes of sharing spring and maybe inspiring a bride or two with these artistic creations. Enjoy!
Through this journey as a photographer, I have many times been the quiet one in the corners of the rooms and the small spaces with my lens ready to silently preserve a special moment meant for just those people involved. This particular hour was one of those occasions which the people involved have allowed me to share.
I was there when they said their vows and I am happy to now be able to say I was there when they became a family.
This beautiful little one became their son.
He is surrounded by love and it is plain to see.
This little man is so handsome it’s hard to not fall for him.
His happiness in contagious.
He is now part of a whole.
I could not be happier for these wonderful people and am very thankful to have been the person they trusted to sit in on their moments.
