This is a rare post for me as I don’t normally photograph weddings. Most of my business involves personal portraits… seniors, children, families, and professional headshots. Therefore, I limit the number of weddings I do so I can devote the necessary time to creatively and sensitively capture the passion, beauty, and magical moments of the event. You only get married once (hopefully) and there are no retakes!

So when my cousin Anna asked me to photograph her wedding, I was honored. I mean, I used to babysit her and change her diapers! This is my sweet, sweet cousin and I just couldn’t imagine not being the one to capture her special day. 🙂

Anna married her high school sweetheart, Patrick. I photographed both Patrick and Anna’s high school senior photos as well. They both are such kind individuals…a great match for each other!

They had an outdoor wedding at Patrick’s Grandpa’s estate. It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day. The reception was held at Marshall School followed by a fun dance. The day was completed with a beautiful pink sunset. We stepped outside to capture some more relaxed moments as the day faded to evening…

Please take a moment to let the page load, get a cup of coffee, and enjoy taking a peek into their special day. This could quite possibly be the longest blog post ever! 🙂

Patrick and Anna, words cannot describe how happy I am to have been able to capture your special day. It was truly an honor to document your love story.

Meet my little niece, Jillian. She’s the sweetest little girl you’ve ever seen. She is such a good baby…..but she loves her mom and didn’t want to pose without her! I can’t say I blame her….moms are the best and they are cuddly and warm too! So we improvised a little here. Jillian was held by mom the entire time except for a few shots before and after when she finally fell asleep!
