Sophie + Jason | Bohemian Wedding - Ft Worth Botanical Gardens

"It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”
                                                         -Vincent Van Gogh

Sophie and I have been friends since we were born, and ever since we were planning our future weddings while watching Star Wars, in between our misadventures where I usually got us both into trouble, I knew that her wedding was going to be something special (Fun fact: Sophie has always threatened to be a bridezilla, but just as I expected, she wasn't deserving of the title in the least). And it certainly was. Sophie and Jason's day was absolutely lovely, complimenting their personalities perfectly. Sophie is a textile artist, and she wove the beautiful backdrop for the ceremony (Follow her on instagram to see more of her beautiful work!), after seeing it in person I decided that I need a piece of art like that in my life. It is absolutely exquisite! And speaking of exquisite, let's just talk about her gown for a moment, shall we? Her custom Game of Thrones inspired gown was probably the most unique wedding gown I have ever photographed. Their day was full of sweet details that were meaningful to their relationship. They both wrote their own vows, and Jason's vows were absolutely tear-jerking. I loved watching Jason interact with Sophie throughout the day. It was evident to everyone just how much he cares for her. 
 A lot of photographers prefer not to photograph weddings of those closest to them, but I must say that this sort is always my favorite. Every time. Without fail, these weddings are dear to my heart, their images resonating in ways that never fail to catch me off guard. And for that reason, remind me to start packing tissues in my lens bag. 
Sophie and Jason, thank you both so much for allowing me to take part in your day, and thank you for being SO patient to finally see these! I hope you love them as much as I do, and I hope that they will be a reminder to you throughout a lifetime of good and not so good days of the sweet beginning you shared. May God bless you both as you begin this next big adventure! 

Rachel + Jake // Little Rock Wedding Photographer

Rachel and Jake are two of the most precious people I know! I met Rachel my freshman year of college, we were on the same floor of the dorm. And despite our obvious height difference we become good friends quickly, and easily! Rachel is full of personality, but still one of the most generous and caring people I know! She is such a blessing to me and I was honored to capture her and Jake's wedding celebration! They balance each other out perfectly, and I am so excited to share in encouraging them as they have begun their marriage journey! 

Rachel and Jake, Thank you so much for allowing me to share in this, it was an honor to stand by you both, even when I  stumble around kicking candles over! Despite all of my antics and craziness your day was exquisite and real. Many blessings and joy-filled years to you both! 

Calvin + Megen // Conway Arkansas Wedding Photographer

It has taken a few years, but I can now say that I do love Arkansas. It won me over with its sense of community and precious people, with its local businesses and southern hospitality. But how it really gripped my heart was through its yearly display of color each autumn. Arkansas really shows off in the fall. So when I heard Calvin and Megen's wedding was in november I was ecstatic. Arkansas novembers are glorious and I knew their wedding would be exquisitely beautiful. What better time to have a rustic wedding than in the fall? Seriously. Well Arkansas didn't disappoint, and neither did Calvin and Megen. Their joy was so contagious and I was so blessed to be there to capture it for them to remember. Many blessings and years of happiness are sure to come for them both. <3

And I'll end with an image from my wonderful second shooter, Rachel Greene! Be sure to check out her blog here for more images from Calvin and Megen's day!
