A few months ago, I got an email from Katie, who had seen our blog post from a surprise vow renewal we had attended and took some photos of for some dear friends of ours. Katie and her husband Matt were planning a trip to Colorado to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, and she was looking for some ideas for planning a surprise vow renewal. I was super excited, and we began exchanging emails, and ended up coming up with a plan and with Katie deciding to have us come out and photograph it! Her excitement was so contagious, and it was so sweet to see how excited she was for this trip with Matt!

Katie wanted to meet for hiking photos (and pretend THAT was the surprise), then go to another location where we would meet up with their officiant for the surprise vow renewal. Part of their trip was planned for Boulder, so we found a great hiking trail just outside Boulder (starting at the Centennial Trailhead), which had a lot of variety and some gorgeous light! Then we headed over to Chautauqua Park (and met up with their friend-of-a-friend, Dan, who officiated the vow renewal!), for their vow renewal to take place in front of the iconic Flatirons of Boulder. Even though Matt had figured out the surprise earlier in the day, it was a really sweet and special time. From a blind date to ten years of marriage and a few adorable kiddos, these two have clearly grown together, and just from the short amount of time we spent with them, their love is truly inspiring!

Hello, everyone!

I hope you all have been enjoying this lovely fall and going in to the holiday season! We are so excited to share some of our favorites from Meg and Joe’s TN farm wedding with you today. This was such a beautiful and intimate day, that took place and Joe’s family’s farm in Lynnville, TN. There was a threat of rain all day, but it held off until after dinner (which was INCREDIBLE, from the Chef and I), and the party just continued around the fireplace! Meg and Joe are so sweet together, and I just love the way they look at each other. It was a sweetly emotional day for them and their families, and we loved seeing their excitement to celebrate coming together!

On to some of our favorites!

Congratulations, Meg and Joe! We are so happy for you both, and wish you many, many years of joy! Thanks for having us along to document your celebrations!

Thank you all for stopping by the blog, and we hope you’re having a wonderful week!




Happy month-a-versary to Seth and Taylor! We are so excited to be sharing more of their sweet Estes Chapel wedding in Wilmore, KY today!

I feel like I’ve shared this story many times between the Facebook page and their engagement session, but I’ve known Seth and his family for a loooong time (I’m thinking at least late elementary school for me!). There are no words to explain what an honor it was to be invited to photograph such a special day, and to capture these sweet moments for a family who watched me grow up, and whose kids I watched grow up. A family who let me baby sit their kids even after a scare with the pilot light going out on the oven that I thought was a gas leak lol. A family who were some of my first models when I got my fancy new camera and was starting to learn about portraits (oh yeah–found those recently! I’ll spare us all ;-)). Seeing Seth meet Taylor and fall in love and seeing these two get ready to start their lives together was just so sweet! On top of all that, the campus of Asbury (where Estes Chapel is located) was one of the places I explored with my camera in my early days of becoming a photographer.

But, enough about me! Seth and Taylor are just so sweet together, and were so excited to get married and celebrate with the people they love most. Their ceremony was officiated by their (and our!) family friend Shawn (his first ever ceremony officiating–he did such a great job!) and was so personal and meaningful and talked about always pursuing each other the way God pursues us. And their reception was such a fun celebration, and they never stopped smiling and taking the time to make sure all their guests knew they were glad they were there.

On to some of our favorites from the day!

Seth and Taylor–CONGRATULATIONS!!! We are so happy for you all as you start out on this new adventure together. Thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your day! We hope you had a fabulous time on your honeymoon!

Thank you all so much for stopping by the blog, and we hope you’re having a wonderful start to the week!




Is there anything more perfect than a laid back fall wedding?! So pumped today to share some more of our favorite images from Dani and Chris’s fall destination wedding at The Cordelle back in September! September in Nashville can have tricky weather sometimes, but we ended up with the most beautiful sunny, no humidity day, which was amazing!

Dani and Chris travelled to Nashville from their home in NYC for their wedding. What I love about these two is how chill they are together, and how much they wanted their wedding to reflect that. Their jobs are pretty high stress, so when they aren’t working, they are all about hanging out with each other (and their cat!), and exploring the city. They wanted their wedding to have somewhat of a relaxed backyard feel, so The Cordelle was the perfect venue (especially with the addition of cornhole–featuring the alma maters Vandy and UCLA–during cocktail hour!). They had an incredibly sweet and intimate ceremony on the lawn, officiated by Dani’s brother, and then had the best time partying the night away with their closest friends and family (and, of course, donuts!). It was so sweet to watch them at several points during the reception as they were just in their own world, over the moon about finally being married!
