Warren, AR Wedding: Steed+Kenna

Another warning!!! Long Post!!!
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, I can continue. I don’t even know where to begin with this post. I’ve known Kenna since the day she was born. Literally. I was a part of her family’s life before she was born. I think I may have spent just as much if not more time with her family as I did my own. She has two older sisters and I fall right in the middle of them age wise. So it wasn’t uncommon to see me at their house on any given day.

When I found out she was engaged, I was very excited for her and Steed. And then when they messaged and asked me to shoot the wedding, I teared up. There was no way I wasn’t doing this wedding. But this post isn’t only about Kenna.

Steed is a great guy! He loves Kenna so much that you can see it on his face when he looks at her. And she looks at him in the same exact way. He loves her children like his own and treats all of them like they were always family. It’s a fantastic love story!

Little girls always love days like this. The get to feel grown up and wear make up and get their hair fixed.

And they’re always watching! I love these two images. Kylee watched mom touch up her mascara and then decided to try it for herself.

As we all know, there is a lot of emotion from a lot of people. Capturing that is always nice!

Nothing like a dad seeing his daughter for the first time.

I had such a good time shooting this wedding. It didn’t feel like work because it was family. I love my job, but getting to work with family, for me, always makes it better. Kenna and Steed, I can’t say thank you enough for letting me capture the beginning of your life journey together. Love you guys!

Til next time,

Do Well and Do Good

Warren, AR Wedding: Josh+Becca

I met Josh and Becca at our first meeting, which is when they signed their wedding contract. I knew right then that they were going to be a great couple to work with. They are easy going and laid back. And that’s exactly what this wedding was. Bride-zilla was no where to be found on this Saturday. Becca was the opposite. She went with the flow and even appologized if we ran 5 minutes late. I just laughed and let her know we were fine and she definitely didn’t have to appologize. Josh was funny and relaxed. Even his guys (and a couple of ladies) in his party were chilled as well. I repeat, it was so laid back.
I could tell right off the bat that they were the right fit for each other. They bring out the best in the other and their love is unconditional.
Becca and Josh, the honor was all mine. I’m grateful that you included me in your extraordinary day. I got to see your story begin. And I can’t wait to watch it grow!
