I just typed up the equivalent to a novel for this post.  And then deleted it.

Sometimes in life things happen that change the way you think and behave from that moment on. Now, I’m not saying this wedding deconstructed my belief system, but it definitely changed the way I approached shooting weddings. Forever.

And now, I’m not even going to tell you why. Because I don’t know. When I figure it out myself I’ll let you know.

I do know that I can’t thank everyone involved in this wedding enough. The amazing vendors I got to work with. The crazy 600 person bridal party which never let a second be dull. April Foster. The tower of cupcakes. A guest who asked me if I was Janelle, the bride. (I thank them because Janelle’s quite the looker as you’ll see. If only I could look like that!!) Jeff. Just because you’re cool and suave and understated. He is. And lastly, Janelle. Because she’s beautifulsmartkindsassyandifIfindonemorereasoni’llgag.

P.S. J squared were together for something crazy like 11 YEARS before they married!

Lastly, please ignore my blatant love for all things girly as I completely included too many bride/bridesmaids photos. But it’s okay. You’ll like ‘em. : )

I really loved this next moment. And the next. And the next. And the next.

I literally gave up when picking ceremony photos. I had a list that I was drowning it to put on here, so since its MY blog I’m leaving it to just these!

This next series should be a beer commercial.

April Foster ROCKED. IT. OUT. for the reception lighting, day of planning, details, and all around glamorosity that she is. Don’t hate. It’s a word now.

    So this is most definitely one of those weddings you really wish you hadn’t looked at less than two months before yours because you want to change everything and do exactly what she did! Beautiful…. all of it!

    I cannot even put into words how these images moved me. Your pictures have so much depth, so much life…they truly catch the human spirit. The vibrancy & Intensity of the color awakens my senses. I would agree w/Julie..it left me speechless! I truly believe that your have found what you were born for. (besides being a really great friend..of course!) I’m so proud of you. -Christina

    These photos are so fun, they make me wish I was at this wedding. This was definately one to crash if you were going to crash a wedding. I may have to steal some for an inspiration board if you don’t care. What can I say? I’m in awe of these photos. WOW!
