that laugh tho. so cute!

I love sneaking couples out for golden hour portraits not only because it’s the best light, but also because it’s the most relaxed I tend to find brides and grooms. The stressful order of events is behind them, and they finally have a second to take it all in. It makes for sweet portraits and an even sweeter memory.

There are so many ways to make up a family and each and every one is oh so beautiful. Loved spending this gorgeous evening with such a sweet little family. Thank you for choosing me to document this special time in your life. 😍

Something pretty for your Thursday morning!

The little details of each wedding have become my favorite thing to photograph in a wedding this year. It’s truly what makes each wedding its own.
I love seeing what jewelry each bride will wear, the different styles of rings, floral designs, wedding gowns and all the other little sentimental things a bride has with her on her wedding day. Being able to get creative and artsy in the way I photograph all these details is also the most fun part! 🤗

Photographers...
.
Have you ever looked at detail shots and said to yourself, “man I’d really LOVE to have those kind of shots but I feel like I don’t have the time and don’t always have the right items to make them look the way I want?”
.
Well...
.
A little “behind the scenes” of our system to always getting good detail shots goes something like...
.
1 - Carving out a hour and a half for detail shots/getting ready photos in the morning so we don’t run out of time and aren’t rushed.
.
2 - Bringing a styling bag with 6+ different styling-fabric-boards so they always stay consistent, a reflector so we can always have a good lighting situation, hangers so I never have to use a plastic one, some ring boxes and some knee pad cushions (invested in those bad boys last year after too many knees on rocks situations haha) 😂
.
3 - Sending out a text to my brides after our “week of the wedding phone call” to let them know of all the detail items I need them to set aside for when I get there the morning of. Those include things like, the entire invitation suite, all three rings, shoes, veil, etc. etc. This will be a huge game changer in saving time and also not having to bug the bride in the morning for where her shoes are when she’s trying to get her makeup done 😘
.
4 - Get in touch with the bride and florist before the big day to see if you can get loose florals to use for the detail shots so you can add those to the board! Most florists love that idea so that the florals are used in more shots!
.
Obviously practice comes in play too of how to arrange them and having the prettier details helps, but once you start showing that details are a priority, you’ll notice the details becoming prettier too because they know these kind of shots they’ll be getting from you.
.
There ya have it! If you want some more in depth descriptions of detail items I have to have for my bag, head to the link in my profile and click the “5 Must Have Items for Detail Shots” tab to download my free e-book if you haven’t already!

And feel free to comment below with any questions! I’ll answer any and all that you have!

It’s going to be another scorcher today at 90 degrees. NINETY. DEGREES.
☀️😰
This calls for staying indoors, with the AC cranked, drinking a pumpkin spice latte, and burning my fall candles with the hopes it’ll bring our cool weather back.
🍂
Wait, is that like the fall version of a rain dance? Who knows, let’s just hope it works! 🎃🍁

I'm celebrating my fourth wedding anniversary today to the guy who offered me his seat at a crowded table.
.
.
🍃When we started dating, we only went on four dates that ended up being closer to four solid days before he had to go back to school for RA training (in the building we had both lived for a year without meeting). He asked me to be his girlfriend at the end of the fourth, and at first I said, "I don't know." At the time I didn't know if I was ready for this - I had my heart broken more than once. But obviously, I said yes. In saying yes I knew this would either be it or I'd be retreating for awhile. .
.
🍃I've never met someone who is my opposite in all the right ways and makes me feel supported and loved the way he does. In my vows I said I know I'm signing up for a life that will never be ordinary (I mean, he proposed on a hot air balloon). Through our adventures and twists and turns it certainly has never been dull. I love this man and what he brings into my life. So happy anniversary and here's to many more.

This gorgeous couple is celebrating four years of marriage today! 🥂🍾⠀

To celebrate a little early, Lena surprised Tim on Tuesday with a night out that included cruising in their "date night car" 🚗, dinner🍴, a photo session of just the two of them 📷 (the kiddos stayed home with a sitter), and a toast to their marriage with Lafayette's beautiful skyline in the background 🥂🌃. How fun is that?! ⠀

Double tap to wish Mr. and Mrs. VanderPlaats a happy anniversary! 💍🍾🥂

Headed into work early this morning after a morning devotion from out of James. Praying for rejoicing and joy in moments that are hard or require endurance. He who sits on high rejoices over those who persevere & lean on His provision! 🙌 Thank goodness we don’t have to do this alone! #wonthedoit #godisgood #430am

Still sharing from this wedding and missing @michellechristinephotography who I second shot along with on this! Hard to believe a year or so has already passed!

Okay, so I’ve been working super hard at training my eye for detail photos, and I think it’s paying off! I’m in loveee with all the details Brittany brought together for her wedding. More previews and details from this wedding in my stories, so go take a look if you love me because I’m over here feeling super proud. 🖤

"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." -Ann Landers

A new post is up on the blog and it's all about the details. :) Wedding day details are so beautiful. You've spent so much time, effort and often dollars in planning the details of your wedding day.
Some brides say, capturing the details in their wedding photography isn't important to them. Click on over to the blog to find out, why I think every bride should included their details in the wedding photos. I promise it isn't just because I think details shots are tons of fun! Link in bio
