Has anyone figured out the secret to getting time to slow down? I just don't know where the days, weeks, and months go anymore. It honestly makes me sad to see so many big stages in life passing by. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm sure @emilybrinkman_gen6 can relate right now because she and Jaymes will be getting married in less than two weeks! I'm so excited to head to Ohio to help celebrate these two!!
Today I'm sharing a few sneak peeks from Elena and Joseph's recent Illinois wedding, including this classic ring shot. I love getting a simple, timeless photo of my couple's rings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which leads me to a question - Brides, how many of you soldered your rings together? I've been thinking about it but haven't pulled the trigger. Let me know if you love or hate yours!
Guys. I have had some of the best sessions and weddings this summer and I am just so behind on sharing all of them with you here on Instagram! And well, Facebook too. Social media can be exhausting at times. So here's to getting back in to the swing of it with a post from Ben and Jamie's joy filled Kentucky engagement session.
Another small town Iowa wedding with a stunning church, portraits in the field, and the absolute best people. I love days like these! Thank you Sydney and Austin for trusting me with your day. It resulted in another friendship with my kind of people. 💛
The older I get the more sentimental I get. Can anyone relate? These days I treasure the places and things that mean something to my family. For many of my wedding couples, they treasure the land and farms that are a part of their family's history. This weekend all of my immediate and extended family on one side of my family will be gathering on my grandma's farm for her 85th birthday. We're going to have our own family session in the field where my grandma and grandpa first welcomed their herd of Red Angus cows. I can’t wait!
BRIDAL GOALS. Isn’t my dear friend Mariah stunning?! I knew Brandon was going to lose it the first time he saw her and he didn’t disappoint! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Before the ceremony we took Mariah and her bridesmaids over to our little town square. I've always thought our limestone courthouse would be the perfect backdrop for photos, and I'm so glad it worked out for this day. It was rather fitting that we grabbed a few shots at this staple spot, in the middle of our bustling town square, because this little town means so much to Brandon and Mariah. They have been the best neighbors and friends that we could have asked for when we moved to the little town of Winterset! So thankful they asked me to be a part of their day!
