Truly honored to shoot my homie’s Engagement | Ethiopian Love 💍.

Yesterday was an emotional day, even the cake was in tiers 👰🏻💍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

It might be punny but it actually was very emotional. This wedding had so many significant parts to it. My sister wore my mothers wedding dress, that my mother wore 31 years ago this week to marry my father. The dress before that was my aunt’s. My sister then left the wedding in a teal dress, as my mother did at her wedding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My grandfather, who was a pastor, passed many years ago and would have been the officiant if he were still alive. Instead, my uncle filled those shoes and did it very well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And the venue was right down the street from where we grew up in Brandon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, I may have finished my maid of honor speech 2 minutes before the ceremony started, but HUGE thanks to all who laughed/cried when they were supposed to.

Love seeing this sneak peak from one of the beautiful weddings this weekend. photographed by @_houseofma

You’re never fully dressed without a smile.

I have a blurry version of this first photo but I resisted and didn’t post it 💪🏼
I don’t know why I seriously love the blurry, artsy, grainy, chopped off faces and feet photos the best. If I ever send you a gallery with photos like that sprinkled in, please know that I don’t mean anything by it and just couldn’t bring myself to leave them out 🖤🖤

Couldn't ask for a more beautiful venue than Mt. Duneed Estate. Awesome staff, gorgeous grounds and tasty wine.

I just realized I hadn't Instagram-congratulated Emily and Mike yet so here's one of my favorite shots from their NoHo wedding earlier this month ❤️

Katie & Grant from a few months ago @tanglewoodestate 💕 dreamy photo by @adaandivy_photography 🖤

To all of the other souls dreading working retail this week, I feel you 😔

uncontrollable laughing + piggy back rides

It’s by your side I make my home ♥️
