LOVE when clients email me and say they want another session! we had the pleasure of shooting the hoppert family last summer when baby gemma was 8 weeks old, and now she’s 10 months old! her brother, joe, age 2, had kind of a (really) rough afternoon with his nap cut (way) short, so we will call this “part one” of the hoppert family session! we will be going for “part two” as soon as mother nature throws us a nice winter afternoon and the nap gods are kind to joe (dude, i totally get it, and i wish i could go back to the time when we got to nap)! but even with all the tears that were shed, we Did manage to get a few with him smiling! actually, that was all richie… i was not as successful! i can say it was a bit chilly, and a bit Wet, and when i left my jeans were soaked with freezing cold mud.. but it was so worth it! love this family and we look forward to more time with them in front of our camera a few times this year!

its kind of bittersweet to post our last wedding from 2014… it was a Great year and i look back over all our weddings and feel so grateful we got to work with so many fantastic couples!  katie and tim are no exception!  we had lots of pharmacy clients this year, too, which was crazy!  these are Two pharmacists who became husband and wife at the end of october last year.  katie made sure she had Quite the list of amazing vendors and we were so happy to be one of them!!  everything about their day went off without a hitch, including the Huge surprise that katie’s parents pulled off at the reception!  below are some of my favorite shots from their wedding!  its a long post, but so worth it!

planner:  kailey branham, a southern soiree  |  ceremony venue:  greystone baptist church  |  reception venue and food:  angus barn

hair and makeup:  ginger mullins  |  florist:  english garden  |  DJ:  randy bennett at joe bunn DJ  |   rentals:  CE rentals
