Kindred Oaks Wedding: Rachel & Matt are married!

Rachel & Matt's wedding at Kindred Oaks couldn't have been more perfect: they are beautiful inside and out, the weather was gorgeous, and I had perfect lighting all day.  After all the rain we've had this fall, it was a relief to have a day that didn't involve alternate plans.  However, the things that made Rachel & Matt's wedding wonderful aren't the kinds of things that rain could ruin.  For example, their fathers wanted a photo together, and then couldn't stop laughing long enough to look at the camera.  Rachel and Matt both inherited that same spirit, making the wedding so fun.  I love knowing that my couples have such strong relationships with each other and their families that it doesn't matter if they get married during a hurricane or on a perfect day, as long as they are together!

Lutherhill Wedding: Elise & Rory are married!

With all of the craziness of throwing a giant party for all of your friends and family, sometimes you lose sight of the fact that a wedding is actually centered around a ceremony.  That ceremony might only be 30 minutes, but it impacts the rest of your life in profound ways and shouldn't just fly by with the rest of the day.  During Rory & Elise's ceremony, time seemed to stand still.  The rain outside fell insistently on the tin roof and guests sat in a circle around Rory & Elise as they made vows that bound their souls together.  While rain on your wedding day can be a bummer, in that moment it felt perfect, sacred and intimate, as though nothing else existed but that moment.  Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0001Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0002Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0003Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0004Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0005Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0006Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0007Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0008Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0009Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0010Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0012Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0011Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0013Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0014Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0015Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0016Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0017Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0018Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0019Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0020Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0021Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0022Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0023Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0024Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0025Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0026Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0028Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0027Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0029Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0030Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0031Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0032Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0033Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0034Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0035Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0036Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0037Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0038Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0039Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0040Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0041Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0042Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0043Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0044Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0045Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0046Lutherhill Wedding- Rory & Elise_0047

Dripping Springs Backyard Wedding: Zena & Janek are married!

Janek buttoned his suit in his childhood bedroom, while his bride laughed and cried with her bridesmaids and mom in the room next door, changing from the robes that Zena's mom had handmade into their beautiful long dresses.  While everyone finished getting ready, I borrowed the rings to take photos of them on quartz that Janek's family found on their land.  Hiding behind a tree during their first look, I got chills when I saw the pure joy beaming from their faces.  -HOLD ON- Sorry this is so sappy, y'all, I keep trying to be cool about how much I loved photographing this wedding, but it isn't working.  So just to give you the fast version of why I loved it:  Zena tearfully Skyping with sister and family in Ukraine, special bracelet from said sister, also sweet letter from sister, LIGHT FOR DAYZZZZ, pre-ceremony piano playing and laid-back toasting, amazing family who made everything happen, laughter-filled ceremony, Russian quote about love, surprise accordion recessional, MORE PERFECT LIGHT!, portraits that make me weak at the knees, twinkly light reception under the full moon, live band, sneaking a dancing with my brother (cute guy in the yellow rose shirt), night portrait experiment success, and unquantifiable amounts of love.  See, I just saved you about 20 minutes by just making a list.  Now stop reading and look at the photos!
