I’m going to try my very best to keep this blogpost text from turning into a straight-up love letter from me to Samantha but I make no promises that it won’t happen accidentally.

No more than six e-mails into our relationship Sam told me she was already certain of our “inevitable BFF-ness” and boy, oh, boy did she call it. After an obscene amount of hilarious e-mail correspondence as well as Sam and Dustin’s engagement session in Seattle, I sat on the couch next to my husband and told him, “I seriously love Samantha so much and I’m going to be so sad when their wedding is over.” I said those exact words and I was not exaggerating in the slightest. Every time we talked she made sure to ask how I was doing, even sent me a Mother’s Day e-mail THE MONTH OF HER WEDDING and gave my daughter three (of the absolute cutest) outfits because Sam is amazingly thoughtful like that. Her joy is contagious and I can honestly say she’s one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out. And while I’m not certain where I fall on Dustin’s BFF scale, I do know that the way he looks at Sam makes my heart swell, his kindness is evidenced by how obviously he’s adored by his (and Sam’s) family and friends plus my BFF Samantha swears he has the patience of a saint. A SAINT.

Needless to say, looking back on this rainy Saturday in May gives me all the feels and I hope you enjoy a peek into my favorite images.

Before the ceremony Samantha and Dustin shared a few quiet moments together. Dustin prayed over their marriage and thanked the Lord for Samantha and BRB I’M CRYING REMEMBERING IT. I felt so incredibly special to be the one to witness and document such a pure, genuine moment between a groom and his bride.

Ah, February — the month of love and chocolate hearts, but for this wedding photographer, the month of catching up on all the back-blogging I never got around the posting last year in the flurry of keeping up with shoots, edits, e-mails and ya know, growing and giving birth to a tiny human. Part of me wanted to start fresh with only blogging work from 2016 but I’m a deeply nostalgic soul (see any instagrams of my daughter . . .  um, basically my entire feed, for reference) and some things I just can’t allow to get lost in my hard-drives, not properly memorialized on my blog for me to come back to over and over again and remember how incredibly blessed I felt to witness and document such momentous days in brides and grooms’  — in sons and daughters and mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and lifelong best friends’ — lives.

Marissa and Matt perhaps had more fun on their wedding day than just about anyone I’ve seen. I love watching people feel deeply, and that is what these two did on that Saturday in May. Enjoy looking through some of my favorites.

Because sometimes you’re just really feeling those black and whites vibes.

The morning of Caroline and Anthony’s wedding went by in a blur but when he waited for her at the end of the church hallway it truly felt like things slowed down. Where there had been rushing around minutes before, there was a quiet, sweet anticipation.

I love first looks.

I love that it slows things down.

I love that it makes certain that there is time set aside for nice, long extended hugs like this one.

Poor Anthony was wiping red lipstick off his face from this moment until the send-off at the end of the evening  — he just couldn’t keep himself from kissing that beautiful bride of his.
