This day absolutely nailed it for low drama but high impact!! Lawrence and Shana were SO easy to work with, Shana is just as levelheaded as she is beautiful, and I think every girl fell in love with the groom a little bit that day. 😉 This is a couple who is faith based as well as family based…almost setting the record for the Longest. Ceremony. Ever. 🙂 I loved the dress, how the tan suits complimented the colors of the wedding and of the bouquet, and I loved my job this day! Congrats, thank you and blessings, Lawrence and Shana…for many, many more years to come.

Everything about this day, from start to finish, was all a photographer could ask for! Full length mirrors and bridesmaids in bright pink silk robes, blush pink roses, ripe barley fields, flower gardens, the cutest shoes ever, four beautiful sisters (including the bride)…I could go on and on! We started our day at the farm; it was a great location for all of the outdoor portraits, as well as being meaningful to the family. The ceremony was touching and its message was to the point, the reception was fun filled and emotional at the same time. Kallen and Deidra are a very special couple and balance each other so well. There is no doubt they have a solid foundation in their relationship, and are surrounded by loving families. Congrats, love and best wishes, along with many thanks for being a part of your wedding day, Kallen & Deidra!
Doing Steven and Lisa’s wedding was a blast! We had so much fun in the little town of Rock Lake. There are great photo locations, and such a nice, laid-back atmosphere; but the most amazing thing of all was being surrounded by the love of the couple for each other and for their families. Steven is generally known as “the best guy around,” for sure his mother-in-law thinks so! 😉 Having the reception outside at the Rock Lake school was awesome: tears were shed during the speeches, the food, drink and decorations were fabulous, and the guests danced with abandon! 🙂 Oh, and have I mentioned the strawberry jam?? Jars and jars of the Best. Jam. Ever. Now that’s one sweet party favor!
How do I even begin to put a few words down to describe how beautiful and special this wedding was? I could just stop here and let the images speak for themselves–but I will say that every detail, every aspect of the day was just perfect! I loved the flowers, the dresses, the color palette, the cupcakes (yum!) but nothing can compare to the gorgeous bride and her handsome groom. I loved seeing the genuine affection between the couple and their families, as Ben was warmly welcomed into the family as a son, and Maren became part of the ‘wolfpack’! 🙂
Isn’t it great when you meet people for the first time, and you’re immediately comfortable with them? That’s how I felt about Nick and Natasha, so their engagement session was easy-breezy! These two people were at home in front of the camera, with each other and with me…plus they are the perfect height for each other. 😉 Nick is already taking care of his bride-to-be, he is the one who made all the arrangements for their wedding photography and engagement photos–I love it when grooms are involved in the wedding planning. We are hoping for a balmy November day for their wedding, and excited to be a part of it!
