This intimate, gorgeous wedding was so much fun! I had the pleasure of shooting this wedding with the awesome Sarah Mansur of Sarah Mansur Photography.

The groom had his brother stand up with him. They were both wearing bracelets in honor of their brother, John, who lost a battle to cancer. The groom also wore an orange ribbon pin on his lapel. Orange? Yes, orange, for the OSU Cowboys!


The bride’s family is from Wisconsin. I swear they ALL had on Packer sweatshirts before the wedding! I can relate to the enthusiasm as I am married to a fellow cheese head. Look at the cake topper – isn’t it adorable??


And the something blue – the gorgeous flats she wore under her dress!


So, I’ll quit rambling and just show some more images from the wedding!

I was thrilled when this mom called me to photograph her Miss ‘L’ again for her 3rd birthday portraits! I was even more excited when she said her husband wanted to come so they could get the entire family in on the action! They were just precious and I so loved seeing Miss ‘L’ again. Thank you, ‘H’ for allowing me to be your photographer. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Karen: totally cute!

Christina: With the visor open and a speed of only 20mph, my helmet starts to whistle. Why ? And how can I stop this ? I have the GMAC Futura flip up motorcycle heetme.Rlgards Terry.

I was thrilled to be asked to do a pre-deployment session with this adorable family! They all just radiated pure joy and it was such a blessing to spend the afternoon with them!

I found out that ‘J’ is expecting twins! Spontaneous, identical twins!! I’m so very excited for her but knowing her husband is leaving to go overseas, I know she would appreciate our prayers to be in agreement for her to have a healthy, smooth, EASY pregnancy and delivery. Her husband will still be overseas during the birth of her babies and she has her darling 2 children, ages 3 and 1, to care for during the pregnancy as well. What a wonderful surprise to come home to though!

Isn’t she just radiant?


And more…. it was hard to choose!








And look how in love they are! I love to photograph couples!



It’s a little overboard for a sneak peek, but I couldn’t resist. ‘J’ and ‘J’ – it was truly a pleasure meeting you all and thank you for allowing me to document these moments together. More to come soon!

Colour=DREAMY too by the way!
