Megan Waycaster | Bridal

i'll be honest. megan is a dream. maybe even the dream. 

whenever i shoot bridals i ask a couple questions about the dress, timeline, thing like that. then i round it all up with my favorite question of all, how adventurous are you? 

megan is stunning, funny, southern and sweet and her answer to my favorite questions was, "VERY" i miiiiiiight have clapped my hands like a child and squealed! adventurous brides are really just SO fun and i think laughter makes anything more fun! 

we started our session at Riverbed Nurseries where i got a little giddy with the lady behind the counter over weddings and all things girly. (she was almost as excited as i was!) the people at the nursery were SO kind to let us shoot there right before closing, i have gone back twice to buy plants because i like them so much! we had a great time shooting there and let me tell you, megan is a champ at walking on gravel in high heals. whew! 

next we piled in our cars and drove to a small field down a random road. (hence the adventurous question...) once we pulled off the road i dropped my tailgate and megan's mom and friends sat down while we drove to the back of the property to shoot. i couldn't help but get the giggles as we bounced along through the tractor ruts. no one even fell off! 

that field was magic let me tell you. aside from one (VERY) large spider crawling up megans dress, (if felt like i was hitting a bird when i smacked it off...) the rest of the shoot went amazing. 

i'm so thankful for days like this one, for beautiful, fun brides, and for adventurous spirits that don't mind going for rides in the backs of trucks...thanks mom!

Greg & Janeil | Married

what a sweet, sweet day to celebrate Janeil and Gregory's commitment to each other. it was a warm spring afternoon full of family, friends, and special touches that made the day uniquely their own.  this wedding was so special for me because Janeil was my first roommate in college. from the first time we ate dinner together, i loved her and knew we would be friends. she has taught me so much about life and joy and friendship. 

i always cry at weddings. but my tears this day were a little different as i watched my sweet friend pledge her life to the one she was(and is!) so sure God made for her. my dad and i were talking after and we both commented on the fact that the ceremony was so reverent as they said their vows we knew they were saying it before the God they love. 

everything was beautiful right down to the light in the chapel. the reception hall was decorated with yellow accents including a huge tower of cupcakes. (praise hands!) and gosh i have never had such fantastic wedding food. (double praise hands and blessings on the head of the chef!) and then we got down. i have never know such a party. it was literally the most fun ever. to this day i can't get over how much fun we had. 

here are the highlights from J&G's fantastic day!

Kelce & Austin | Married

oh where should i start? kelce has been one of my dearest friends for quite a while! we have done life together so much and drank many a cup of coffee. we always have the best adventures and the first time she talked to me about austin i remember smiling so big because he sounded perfect. 

getting to know austin (spastically!) has been so fun! i love the see the way he loves kelce and the little things he does for her. their life together is so perfect for them and its amazing to see the kind of guy God picked out for Kelc. we truly had no idea in all our giggly silly girl talks during sleepovers. 

now lets talk about this wedding day. i wouldn't exactly label the day perfect. it was uh, a little warm to say the least and have you ever heard of may flies? well i hadn't but they are a thing and i got quite the arm workout waving my hands around my head. but all that to say, the ceremony was a top a hill kelce had dreamed of getting married on since she was little, and it really was lovely up there. the pictures are beautiful. 

the wedding party was the most fun! we laughed so much and those silly boys kept me on my toes for sure! the girls were beautiful deck out in mint and not to mention the bride and groom clean up pretty well. 

the reception was in a barn at the front of the property and during all the festivities and hugs, some children found a pile of dirt and started throwing it high in the air and running through it. it was the most perfect day for this couple! everything was laid back and fun. i would fight those flies to do it all again! 

congratulations again kelce and austin! may the Lord bless and keep you! 

Kailey & Conner | Texas Wedding

Kailey & Conner started out on the best possible foot when i was informed there would be a donut tower at their wedding. from then and there i knew it was going to be one of my favorite weddings of the summer.

Huntsville Texas has a of really great and really odd things about it. its a prison town and is also filled with the most wonderful people. i am considering my three new best friends, a grandma, a fifteen year-old lady, and a very honest twelve year old boy. i wish with all my heart i could go back and visit them this very second.

the wedding day was beautiful. its so hot in texas but the wedding party did an amazing job standing in the heat and having fun with each other. the colors were light and classy and Kailey made a stunning bride.

for all those out there, lace is the way to go.

they married in the church they grew up in and i cried when the pastor (Kailey's dad!) said that he truly believed Conner was "good enough" for his daughter. He talked about the kind of man Conner was and i just sat there on the floor seeing the beautiful picture of the gospel that marriage is. 

Sealing their marriage with a kiss they headed back down the isle hand in hand with huge smiles on their faces.

Kailey and Conner were the dream couple to shoot. both stunning, both happy to hold on to each other for as long as i kept taking pictures. i couldn't be more happy with the way these photos turned out. have a look!

getting ready shots are always at the top of my list of favorites.

these people are gems i tell ya!
