Chanel Anthony  Follower of Christ || Colorado --> Washington | Married to my best friend, Josiah 💍 | Down to travel ✈️

WHEW - August is almost halfway over! 3 more wedding and 2 engagements left for the second half! I’m ready for it y’all 💪🏼 I’m loving all the people I’ve met over the last couple of weeks while working. Josiah has been with me for some of the wedding this month and commented a few times that I’m “definitely in element and happy place” when shooting. How right he is!!! 😍

Finishing up Ashlee and Matt’s sweet outdoor wedding - it was so d r e a m y 😍🌿

2 years - and I can’t stop thinking about how it’s felt so much longer! Marriage is a very unique bond - where you find yourself pursuing the love and grace of God over the “effortless happiness” of what our culture says about love. How thankful am I to share that pursuit with my best friend - who pushes me to see the best in myself, encourages me, and aims to love me selflessly daily. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my love!!

Interlaced fingers kind of love 💕

Full Disclosure: Family sessions sometimes make me a little nervous. Every family is so unique that it can be intimidating to capture each dynamic. However, Ally and Nick's family lifted that doubt right off my shoulders. This family is beyond beautiful - and it was so special to capture my friend's family.

Another gallery off and delivered! Whew 😅💪🏼 These two are so fun and we were feeling some major “Notebook” vibes in this spot. AND I’m shooting their wedding at the BEAUTIFUL Kelley Farms in November. Can’t. Wait. 😭

SO enjoyed my long weekend in California! Spent some quality time with my sis and visited family along the coast. I think it’s safe to say that Malibu is one of my favorite new places 😍 .

Back to grind today! Full swing back into editing, client meetings, and fall prep. Lesss do it 👏🏼

This session holds a very special place in my heart. Both Kaleb and Myra serve in the U.S. Air Force. I was very humbled to taking these photos for them ♥️ Thank you for your service ♥️

This day....Tears. Were. Shed. Congratulations to the most loving and kind couple. It was honor to take pictures of these two!

Some pretty 6am sunlight 🙇🏻‍♀️☀️

If you are going to do a sunrise session - do it right and start at 5am. 🙌🏼

A sweet capture with Chase and Maggie with the Colorado Springs city below. No, the skyline isn’t dramatic and huge - but it is familiar and comfortable and is the perfect backdrop for these two lovebirds. .

ALSO these two are now ENGAGED so send them a congrats!!! 💍

I want to get to know my followers more that are in the photography community too! Comment a 📸 below + how long you’ve been shooting if you are a photographer! Whether you just started or have been shooting for years, whether your professional, hobbyist, or somewhere in between - I want to know! 👇🏼Personally - I’ve been shooting for about 5 years and weddings for 3 years. I think it’s valuable to be in community with photographers in this age of social media. We are forever learning and growing in this field - and doing that together makes it that much more valuable 🙌🏼

How special it was to be apart of capturing Lauren and Daniel’s day!! So many unique traits - like Lauren’s dress being HANDMADE from her great grandmother??? Wow. These two rock and celebrated their love in the best way. Also, I worked along side @josiah_anthony and @anjrucoral for this one which makes it even MORE rad. 🤙🏼
