I had so much fun getting to know these two. They are completely adorable together and truly know how to laugh and have a good time. It was so much fun photographing every single moment of their day. It was a gorgeous day in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and I am thrilled to share a few of my favorite photos.

Kristen + Andrew: Thank you thank you thank you!!! I am truly so grateful to have been a part of your wedding experience. I hope you cherish the photos forever! xo

Every now and then my brides request to do a little mini “First Look” with their father. This moment is always so sweet.

Kristen had all of her bridesmaids wait downstairs while she got ready… their reaction seeing her for the first time was priceless.

Then she was off to see her groom for the first time.

I absolutely love these sweet moments of intimacy. This is truly what it is all about.

I love what I do. So much.

Wedding planner: Adrienne Garanich (amazing!)
Venue: The Venue (Hattiesburg) — LOVED THIS VENUE!!!!!

I met Amy almost 5 years ago. She was a bridesmaid in another wedding I was shooting. She told me that even then, she knew she wanted to hire me for her wedding someday. Ohmygoodness… that sort of thing is what any photographer wants to hear. What an honor! When she contacted me years later for her wedding I just couldn’t believe she actually meant it!!

Amy has been so kind and so sweet throughout the entire process. I feel truly lucky to have met her years ago.

Amy and Kyle: Thank you for having me. I hope I was able to capture your day like you always imagined I would. It has been such a pleasure. xo

Amy and Kyle chose to do a First Look.. my favorite!!

When I think of Kelly and Jeff, the first words that come to mind are BEST FRIENDS. They are so beyond perfect for each other. They went on a blind date almost 10 years ago, and as you will see in my photos below, it’s so obvious they were meant to be together from that very moment. They are constantly laughing together. In fact, I am not sure if I have ever seen a happier couple. I cannot even tell you how many times they had me smiling the entire wedding day. They are just so DARN CUTE TOGETHER!!!! You will see what I mean… ; )

Kelly and Jeff: Gosh, words just can’t tell you… how grateful I truly am from the bottom of my heart for you both. I am so blessed to have not only met you both, but that I was able to photograph your special moments. THANK YOU!!! xo

If their photos don’t make you smile, well…

Oh and be sure to watch the video at the very end of this post. It’s pretty amazing.

First Look!!! One of my absolute favorite moments of a wedding day.

Kelly surprised Jeff with a boudoir album from our studio The Boudoir Vixen. Let me just tell you, he had no idea. But was THRILLED.

Landry and Will are just adorable in every way. They planned the most perfect Southern country chic wedding with a touch of old Hollywood glam. They invited all of their best friends and family to be a part of their memories and love. It was a beautiful day in every way. The way the sun shined through the moss trees, the way Will looked at Landry throughout the evening, the laughter that was constantly in the air, and how stunning Landry looked. Everything was just perfect. Super excited to share their day with you.

Landry & Will: THANK YOU! So much, from the bottom of my heart for asking me to be a part of your memories. It has been so much fun getting to know you both. xo

Yes, that is Will break dancing. Pure awesomeness.

Bridget is a hopeless romantic but never thought she would find “the one”. She was driven in life and motivated with school and work. And just wasn’t sure she’d ever find someone who valued these same things in life. Well, God knew better because he brought Mikah into her life and Bridget quickly discovered that not only did he value the same things as her, he actually added to her goals by helping encourage her in everything she wanted and dreamed of. They fell in love and just knew they were right for each other.

It was a beautiful day in Southern Louisiana. Enjoy this beautiful intimate wedding I truly enjoyed photographing.

Bridget + Mikah: Thank you so much for everything. It was my pleasure and honor to be a part of this incredibly special time in your life. xo
