This was probably my most anticipated wedding this year – mainly because it felt like it had been a long time coming! Justi & Sam originally booked their date with me in the fall of 2015 (officially my ‘furthest out’ wedding couple)! We met for their engagement photos in the fall of 2016 – and […]
Ten years ago, this mama & papa bear were married in this very spot! The PIPAC building no longer serves as one of Cedar Valley’s most coveted indoor/outdoor venues (sadface, it really was a stunning venue!), but we were thankfully allowed to let them reminisce as we photographed their sweet little family there in June.
Before we dive head first into this post, I think it’s incredibly import to note something: almost everything you see in these photos was handmade. A lot of it was crafted by Emily, including her gorgeous, Victorian-age inspired bridal dress (WHICH HAD POCKETS, btw). I can’t get over it… That is all. Now let’s sit […]
Alex & Wendy are one of the sweetest, most easy-going couples I’ve ever met. If anyone deserves good weather on their wedding day – it would be them! Unfortunately, mother nature had other plans for October 7th, 2017. Rain and wind forced them to move their ceremony location at the last minute – but luckily, […]
Abby & Trevor met and quickly became good friends. It wasn’t for a while into their friendship that they decided to take the leap into something more. And now they’re engaged and planning a beautiful wedding in Basalt, Colorado! Their love is seriously the sweetest kind, and they made engagement sessions look almost too easy […]
Baileigh & Lukas are simply the cutest. It’s no surprise they’ve made such a gorgeous little baby boy (whom I lovingly referred to as “boss baby” while I edited these photos. Why Boss Baby? because a) he kind of looks like boss baby and b) he was a TOUGH cookie when it came to smiling! […]
“Red Sky at night, Sailor’s Delight” Taylor and Trevor’s engagement session (at Backbone State Park) was definitely a fun one! I don’t think I’ve ever photographed a more smiley couple! We started the session with their dogs Scout and Rex (who were SO good!) and ended with a beautiful bright red sun overlooking the corn […]

Sarah and Dusty LOVE hiking in Backbone State Park… and I can see why! I’m so thankful my first time exploring the park was with these two!
Holly & Michael are probably some of the genuinely nicest people I’ve ever met. Their love for each other was such a beautiful thing to bear witness to! By now they’ve returned to their home in Georgia after an amazing honeymoon, and have probably started settling back into the routine of ‘normal’ life. I hope […]
