This wedding celebration is more than the pairing of a husband wife, it is the start of a new chapter for this adorable family. Melissa read vows to Ella and promised to love and care for her during the emotional ceremony. You can tell that Ella loved being included and already has such a special bond with Melissa. My favorite part of the day was watching the rain clouds move away and the sun peeking out. Our photo time in Eden Park had to wait a few minutes but it was worth it! We had just enough rain for good luck and plenty of time for photos! And The Bell looked incredible for the fun reception and the dance floor was full all night! Melissa, Matt and Ella we wish you three all the very best! Thank you for inviting us to document your special day.

A big thank you to these awesome wedding proffesionals who made it incredible!

Meet Little Lucy

Category: Portraits | July 27th, 2016

Lucy and her family are just too cute! She already has so many helpers! She was a great model and slept for most of the photo session. Don’t worry, I still got to hold her and rock her. Isn’t she just adorable? Newborns are truly wonderful!

Some love stories are just meant to be. Amy and Nick met at a small group mixer for their church and somehow made it into the same bible study group. And the rest as they say – is history. It reminds me of how my husband and I met and how sometimes you just never know how the next person you meet my change the course of your life! These two are so cute together too. Their wedding day was filled with so much joy and laughter. And even though the ceremony started a few minutes late it also meant we had the most perfect golden hour lighting for photos with the couple. My favorite part of the day was seeing everyone circling the couple and serenading them to the song “Fools Rush In.”
“Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand,
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you”
Amy and Nick we wish you two all the happiness in the world! Thank you for inviting us to document your love story! And a big thanks to their incredible family, friends and wedding professionals for all of their help. Jeff Clarke from Party Pleasers and City BBQ did an amazing job!

Congratulations to Melissa, Matt and Ella! Yesterday was a beautiful celebration and I am so glad we were there to photograph all of the fun! And thanks for trusting me and waiting on the rain to pass. Just after a little downpour we took this photo at Eden Park on the bridge! We are so happy for you all!
