Carrie and Justin’s ~ Lake Winola Wedding

Carrie and Justin’s ~ Lake Winola Wedding

I’m finally blogging my best friend’s wedding reception from back in November! Rebranding my entire business has certainly gotten me behind on blogging and it would be easier to share more recent work but I had to share this wedding that was a perfect mix of rustic and glamour!

Carrie and Justin eloped in June but planned an intimate and romantic reception in November. Carrie being the planner she is, every last detail was on point! It’s so her to have sparkles intertwined with nature and rustic furniture. I was totally in love not only with the decor but also Carrie and Justin’s ever adorable love for each other. High school sweethearts that came back together years later, never having forgotten each other. After 10 + years of history it didn’t take them long after finally deciding to date to tie the not. They started dating in March and were married by June. It’s been such a joy to watch their love story unfold and their wedding reception was an absolutely perfect celebration of their love!

Since I wasn’t just Carrie’s Wedding photographer but also her Maid of Honor I had to prepare a speech. I’m pretty much the worst ever at public speaking so I almost had an anxiety attack. I made it through it but not without crying of course. I got really emotional especially since I knew that they are becoming parents to a baby boy soon! I’m so happy for you Carrie and Justin and I can’t wait to keep watching your love story, I wish you many joyful years of marriage!

Tamara & John ~ Yosemite National Park Anniversary Session

Tamara & John ~ Yosemite National Park Anniversary Session

In December I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Tamara and John and capture their 23rd Anniversary at Yosemite National Park. You certainly can’t get a more stunning location than Yosemite! It’s beautiful landscapes had me in awe and this lovely couple’s love had me swooning. These two kinds souls certainly make 23 years of marriage look good, I mean seriously! They were so sweet and so much fun! I’m so happy they were up for an adventure through the park with me! We even got to meet a fox, who totally was posing for me! We couldn’t have had more fun even though it was very cold.

Jane Eyre Wedding Inspiration

Back in November I came together with some of my favorite friends/vendors to bring to life an idea that had been rattling around in my head for Jane Eyre Wedding inspiration. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results! You are always promised beautiful results when people bring their passion to your project. I’m so lucky to know such talented and passionate creatives!

We were inspired by the moody, haunted love story of Jane Eyre and we had the perfect misty morning at Lackawanna State Park that created the perfect setting. All the details came together perfectly, we had a real life couple who model for us but despite the golden sun it was FREEZING. But we all powered through and then enjoyed some delicious cupcakes!
