As many of you know, I stopped taking on weddings regularly a couple of years ago. Every time that I do get calls to do them, I sometimes regret that decision. The reason for this was that, at that time, my mother-in-law was dying of lung and brain cancer, and I was too busy doing weddings that I had booked 1 to 2 years earlier (not knowing what my situation would be in that next year) and I missed a lot of times that I was needed to help with the care and just having the ability to share these few months we had left to spend with her. It was devastating, and at that time, I decided that I was going to be having a baby, and I didn’t want to fill up my calendar with dates that I didn’t know what was going to be happening in my life month or even years in advance. I decided later down the road that I would take on (very limited) weddings by friends,family and previous client referrals only. When I get to do these kinds of sessions that are so filled with love, I miss it so much. I have, however, been overtaken with LOTS of sessions including families, children and newborns which I think are so amazing and I love getting to watch families grow and change. Since having my own family, I have found that I definitely want to keep this as my specialty. This couple that came to me was a sister of a 5 year client of mine that I had photographed with the family. When she asked me to shoot her wedding, I had to do it. I felt compelled to give this bride to be the photos that she longed for and it didn’t hurt that she loved my photography. This session was so beautiful! Beautiful people inside and out, a little adorable baby girl, and a location that was to die for! We actually did their photos at the location where they will be married!!! This location is no longer taking on weddings, but since Jenni and Wyatt know the owners, they agreed to take on one more wedding and I am so excited to photograph them at this location on their big day. Here are some images from Jenni & Wyatt’s engagement session.
