Weddings & Engagements

Cole & Jill – Engaged!

Cole and Jill have been together through thick and thin – they compliment each other perfectly and there is no doubt that Cole is Jill’s “prince charming!” (He’s just a pretty charming guy all around.) We have known Jill since she was a little girl, and these two both feel like family. We were thrilled when we heard that Cole had *ahem, finally* proposed 😉 and double thrilled when he called to ask us about photographing their wedding next June. I can’t imagine anything more special than being by their side as they become Mr. & Mrs!

Dan & Liz’s Wedding

Dan and Liz have a very sweet and special “love story”! The rumor is that Dan was seen riding a bicycle through a park, wearing (gasp!) shorts, and accompanied by a girl. Apparently this was the moment when his friends knew that he was in love, because Dan is just not a “ride-your-bike-in-the-park-wearing-shorts” kind of guy! 🙂 He is more “walk through the woods wearing camo while carrying a gun/bow and arrow” type of guy. Luckily Liz is also that kind of girl, at least enough to go along with Dan for a walk in the woods, where there just happened to be a pair of antlers, an engagement ring, and a marriage proposal! Also, lucky for them both that she said yes, because they are so suited for each other.  The family moments between mother and daughters were especially poignant, seeing their closeness and having Liz’s mom walk her down the aisle. Liz also had such a wonderful bridal party – cousins and friends since childhood (literally kindergarten!) The weather cooperated (for the most part), the ceremony was touching at times and light-hearted at times, and the reception details, food and drinks blew us away! I think those little, right off the tree caramel apples dipped in crushed pretzels were the most perfect food I’ve ever eaten 🙂 And the Oreo truffles? Let’s just say that some people had to be threatened to make sure that there were enough to go around!

Dan and Liz, you are off to a wonderful start, and thanks so much for having us be a part of this beginning of your lives together.

Warren & Katie’s Wedding

We first met Katie when her son Peyton was the ring bearer at a friend’s wedding a couple of years ago. We liked her immediately and are SO thrilled she found Warren – the love of her life, her helpmate and support, her biggest fan, not to mention a wonderfully kind and caring father. Warren’s only request for the day was that he and Katie wouldn’t see each other before the ceremony (oh yeah, and the super hero shot!), so afterwards we asked him what he thought when he saw Katie for the first time. He got this incredulous look on his face, as if it was a highly unnecessary question… “Wow, uh, I mean, LOOK at her! I was just looking.” However, Warren isn’t a man who is often finds himself speechless. He actually hooked Katie on a pickup line! Now let me tell you, Katie isn’t the type of girl to fall for a pickup line, but when ruggedly handsome Warren came up to her and said, “You know, I’m kind of a big deal…” She HAD to laugh and ask why. 🙂  Turns out a local billboard for the company he was employed by featured his picture. And the rest is history…


There are HOW many layers of tulle to this dress?? However, the perfect dress is like the perfect man… when you know, you KNOW. And as Katie said, “Sorry ladies, I didn’t choose the dress, it chose me!”

Steven & Taylor’s Wedding

Steven and Taylor are high school sweethearts, a rock-solid couple whose love has already stood the test of time. It’s inspiring to see two young people so fully committed to each other and to their relationship. They have excellent examples in their parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents (2 of whom were also there to share in their day!). As photographers, we had a ball with the teal and orange color palette and all of the fun reception details… Coloring pages, personalized Kisses, and striped candy? Yes, please! Oh, and from now on, we are requesting that all our bridesmaids come with a pair of orange Converses. 😉

**Steven and Taylor’s wedding was the first of our “back-to-back” weddings a few weekends ago… We were sure glad they chose to get married on a Friday so we could be available to capture Warren and Katie’s  wedding the following day (blog coming soon!).

Brittany & Adam’s Wedding

This couple has totally won our hearts! There’s something about Adam, maybe it’s his boyish face and ready smile, his kind and gentle personality or his cute remarks that make him so lovable! And Brittany…her grandpa says she’s beautiful inside and out, so “that makes her reversible!” We have to agree 🙂 There were so many touching, heartfelt moments during the day; the kind that make you say “awww”, bring tears to your eyes and a lump to your throat. So special to be included in your day, Brittany and Adam – many congrats and warm wishes for love-filled years ahead!
