Portrait Session | Anniversary Photos – Wedding Dress and All

This is the first couple I took “professional” photos for – engagement photos over a decade ago. Now, ten years later, I have the honor of shooting their anniversary photos – with Lauren in her beautiful wedding dress (it still fits!), and their three children. I love the idea of re-creating wedding photos to show what has changed, and what hasn’t, over the last decade. I may even steal the idea myself next year. 😉 Congratulations to Lauren and Justin on their 10-year anniversary, and thank you for your continued faith in me to capture your beautiful family!

Photo of the Day: Seven Years and Counting

Today is our seventh wedding anniversary! Good news: this guy can still pick me up. More good news: he still puts up with me taking at least 20 anniversary photos every year (even if he does roll his eyes).

Wedding Photography | The Hadleys

I had the honor and privilege of photographing my coworker’s wedding this past weekend. I think everyone was a bit bummed out that the rainy weather and cool temps moved the ceremony inside instead of on the lake, but everything was beautiful nonetheless. The bride was stunning in her dress, and the families were so much fun! There’s always a hiccup at a wedding – in this case, the bride couldn’t find her purse, which made her late to her own big day. The guests were laid back and took it in stride. Aside from that, it went off without a hitch. It’s obvious how in love these two are – I was lucky to be a part of their big day.

Photo(s) of the Day: Happily Ever After

Last weekend I got to be a part of a truly picture-perfect wedding. The weather was gorgeous (actually, hot for October), the bride was breathtaking, and most importantly – the couple was so obviously in love. A perfect beginning to a beautiful marriage.

(Since I was in the wedding, I unfortunately didn’t get to take many pictures.)

Has it really been five years?

Today is our five-year wedding anniversary. Has it really been that long? I remember every detail of the day so vividly, it feels like yesterday.

We looked so young.

I still blame the hubby for the Bentley breaking down … maybe in another 20 years he’ll blame me. 🙂

Here’s a toast to many more years together.

I hope we can still dance like this at our 50-year wedding anniversary. Wait, who am I kidding? We can’t dance like that now.

We’ve been through many life experiences – going back to school, job changes, buying a car and home, vacations, and of course most importantly – a beautiful baby girl. Happy anniversary hubby! Five years is just the beginning.

These photos were all taken by Parigo Studios. We were so happy to have them as our photographers. I only added my watermark because I don’t want anyone stealing the photos.

Photo(s) of the Day: BFFs

This weekend we were thrilled to have good friends from Colorado stay with us. The best part … they have a son (whom I’ve nicknamed Lil’ W) just two days older than Baby K! Is it destiny? We’ll see in about three decades – the daddies have agreed they can start dating when they’re 30. I guess they haven’t noticed Lil’ W is already making a move on Baby K!
