What a GORGEOUS wedding day Kelsey and Derek had at Bandit's Ridge! The prettiest pastels for details and florals. It was such a beautiful and unique venue. The inside reception spot with the light colored wood photographed so classic and nice. The outside little barn area where the horses stalls were was decorated so pretty, and made for a dazzling backdrop of lights for portraits! Not to mention the kindest vendors to work with at the facility. It was such a nice wedding day!Read More
There were SO many incredible moments through out this whole day. Several times where I was definitely moved to tears. Justine’s mom had recently passed away, and they did such a beautiful job honoring her through out the entire day. Her bouquet had a locket on it of her mother and grandmother. There was also a chair dedicated to her at the Ceremony. Justine also held her mother’s wedding photo for some photos with her same hat she wore. That is early in the film.
We were beyond blessed to capture these special memories for Justine and Matt! Make sure to not miss the end of the film during the daddy/daughter dance! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place! Oh and YES everyone agrees Matt looks just like Vin Diesel haha!!!Read More

Taryn and Taylor met through their love for Baseball so Taylor had the perfect proposal planned! In 2016 they went to a Braves/Cardinals game, and that was where they first said “ I love you. “ So a year later they got tickets to go to the Friday night contest with postgame fireworks. Taylor had the ring in his back pocket for most of the afternoon, and hid it well Taryn said. When they arrived at the gates before they opened he asked to get a picture taken in front of the stadium sign. So Taryn’s dad took the picture as Taylor got down on one knee! Of course Taryn said “YES!!!”Read More

Taylor and Tyler have been together for three years, and met through friends. They quickly knew that this was it.

Taylor said it was the perfect evening!Read More
Well... I don't even know where to start as I begin typing this blog post. Hunter surprised me with the most selfless and sweetest gift for our 10 year anniversary on Friday afternoon. He secretly planned a 10 Year Vow Renewal and Anniversary party. I HAD NO IDEA! Like completely blown away... if you can't tell by my face in the pictures. I mean I was seriously uglyyy crying ha ha. He told me all week to be dressed, and ready to go somewhere at 6:45 PM on Friday for our anniversary. That was all I knew. I figured we were going out for a nice dinner or something. I was wrong - lol.Read More

Vicki and Blake had the sweetest wedding day! So many things Vicki put together herself or had her amazing friends help her with. You could just feel the LOVE through out this whole day. Her Grandma made her cake, and Vicki did so many of the decorations completely DIY.
