Title

Kelly is one of the sweetest most gracious brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

I’ve noticed a special trend in my photographic eye. Of course I’m tuned in to the special relationship between the couple I’m there for, but I’ve started noticing the pictures I’ve made of family more and more. The sweet moments between sisters, and mothers and daughters, specifically. Maybe it’s because my sisters and I are finally at an age where we can appreciate each other, and so I have a deeper appreciation for that bond, or maybe it’s because more than anything I desire for my girls to always be close and look out for each other. Whatever the reason, I’ve noticed the special moments I’ve grabbed within those interactions.

Kelly and Kym are certainly sweet sisters. Kym was attentive, supportive, and always smiling. When toasts came around, Kym had the room teary with her description of Kelly….strong, kind and a generous woman…that always thought of others first. Every interaction I’ve had with Kelly has been wonderful. She is calm and relaxed, and takes in every second. On her wedding day, she breathed every moment in.

Working with Jon and Kelly on their engagement session, I knew that their wedding would be special, and it was. They are head over heals crazy about each other. Their affections for each other are genuine, and deeply felt. It was the tiny glances and smiles throughout the day, when they didn’t think anyone was watching, that made my heart swell. Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic. I’m a hopeless romantic that still believes in love. I still believe that true love and devotion can exist between two people, because I see it in couples like Jon and Kelly.

Jon and Kelly,

Thank you both for letting me be there with you. It’s my joy to continue doing what I do. As I drove home, my heart kept repeating an old Irish wedding blessing for you…so I wanted to share. Many blessings to you both. You are both so special.

<3- K

 May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortunes
and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.

Family.
Alec and Anna’s beautiful wedding at the Thompson House and Gardens was not only a celebration of their union, but also the blending of 2 families. I left that night, checking in with my own brothers and sisters..just to say I love you and I miss you.

Anna is a natural beauty. She is elegant and graceful. During their first look, all Alec could say was “Wooooow!” He was spot on. Wow Anna. You were beautiful.

There were so many sweet interactions between these two families all day, and into the evening. I was honored to be there, helping all of you to remember it for years and years to come.

I would love love love to shoot at the Thompson House and Gardens again. The purple wisteria, the gardens, the black iron fences, all of the little paths, the gazebo…a wedding photographer’s dream.
