This spunky couple was so much fun during their engagement session! I know that will be the same case today as they become Husband & Wife at the Botanical Gardens! I can't wait to see & edit all of the moments that my associate photographers capture for you two on your wedding day! Congratulations Rebecca & Matt!
Today Kristina & Steven tie the knot at the Chrysler Museum! Kristina has made a lot of DIY projects & decor that I can't wait to see! I know that this is going to be such a fun celebration for these newlyweds & they are in great hands with my associate photographers today as I finish up maternity leave & continue to heal! Congratulations Kristina & Steven!
I want to know... what lights you up? ... #jessicaryanphotographer
Quiet moments just before her wedding ceremony on a mountain... Taking time to soak in the feeling, overlooking the mountains in the distance. Mountains that they’ve hiked & camped together before. Mountains where her Groom proposed & the mountains that they will continue to explore throughout their lives. ⠀ ...⠀ Take that quiet moment for yourself. Soak in the magnitude of your wedding ceremony to your soulmate! What quiet moment did you love on your wedding day?
I’m holding Lucas in my arms as I type this... For those of you that may not know Lucas’ middle name is after my brother, Richard. Here, I am wearing one of his home run baseballs as a bracelet on our wedding day. I wanted his presence close to me on such an important day & had @eitherorejewelersstrawbridge design this bracelet for me. ... As for going into this stage of our lives as new parents, bringing another little person into our family, I want him to know his Uncle. My brother, Richard, will always be his Uncle & he’ll know about his big smile & brown eyes. He’ll learn about his love for baseball & hiking. Lucas will learn that my active lifestyle, the places Lucas will get to see & the nature he will experience stems from my brother’s life implementing that into mine. ... This is the season I’m in, newborn snuggles & diaper changes & becoming a Mom! But the story remains the same, if not the same it’s only getting stronger...bolder... I photograph weddings the way I do because of this life that I get to live. I get to have compassion, deep love & importance for what I do. ... I want to know: what inspires you? #shinethelightsociety
Happy two weeks buddy! I hope your eyes stay blue! I hope you continue to love to be snuggled! I hope you continue to grow (we need to get some rolls on those arms & legs) & for us to see more smiles soon! You are adorable. You are loved. And you’re a pretty easy baby, all you need is love, a clean diaper & a full belly! #babylrc
Lets talk about vows! What is the most meaningful wedding vow to you?⠀ ...⠀ We wrote our own vows & it took several minutes for us to recite it all. We were in our own world speaking the most important words to each other. We also recited the traditional vows & today, in sickness & in health, holds so much meaning to me. ⠀ ...⠀ We are living life with a newborn & learning how to be parents together to our sweet baby boy which is no small accomplishment. Even more so if you have any complications during labor & delivery. Actually, even if you don't recovery is still a process! In these last two weeks we have tested & passed & proven to ourselves that we've got this vow down!
Being serenaded under the cafe lights and open sky during sunset at their first dance as a married couple! I LOVE outdoor weddings!
Let’s give a huge congratulations to Cindy & Jay! 🥂Their #jrpadventuresessions was last year where Jay proposed to Cindy, but I just got word that they recently eloped in the blue ridge mountains! How perfect that is for them! Congratulations you two!
