Brandon & Rachelle {engagement}

IMG_5641

I’ve got this beautiful friend, her name is Rachelle.  We’ve made so many memories together… whether it’s a road trip, going to the beach, sharing in our accountability group, youth group, or simply just hanging out as friends.  If i need to talk to someone, i know i can go to her.  We laugh together, we cry together, we solve the world’s problems together.  And i’ve tried to give her advice when it came to boys. LOL:)  But one summer, we went to Shenandoah Christian Music Camp together, and this boy shows up there who rapidly gets swept off his feet by the sight of my friend, and by the time he asked her out, i couldn’t do anything about it but sit back and watch them fall head over heels in love!:)  I was totally okay with it though, and i think they make a great couple!!

Kent & Kendra {wedding}

You may wonder why you see luscious green trees and grass on these pictures… well, it’s because this photographer is running behind and still posting random sessions from last year!!  But i hope you can still enjoy them!

Meet Kent & Kendra… a sweet, young couple who had a lovely, well-organized wedding!

One of those couples that you can tell from the very beginning that they are perfect for each other.

They can be in a room full of people and yet be in their own little world… so in love with each other that they forget the rest of us exist! :)

Looking forward to capturing a lot more sweetness next Saturday!

2x the blessing…

A baby is a blessing from God.  But Sam Jay & Mary Ann received a {double} blessing…  Twin boys!

It was an interesting photo session[s] that required a lot of patience, but with sweet rewards.  :)

Meet Joseph Allen and Joshua Amos…

It’s already time to start thinking about weddings in 2014!  Where has the winter (my break) gone??

Sammy & Rhoda will be the first bride and groom for me to photograph this year.  They are such a sweet couple and i’m looking forward to taking a lot more pictures of them on their big day! :)  Until then, i’ve got some cute shots to post of their engagement session last Fall…
