Monticello, AR Wedding: Brandon+Brittany

The sky was clear with the exception of a few clouds on Brandon and Brittany’s wedding day. The was a continuous breeze and the temperature was a little chilly. But that wasn’t going to stop this small, intimate ceremony outside of their family church. The chairs and haybales were set up, waiting for the guests to arrive. Brandon and Brittany were beginning the day that was going to start their lives together, forever.
The reception hall was almost ready and so were the girls. Finishing touches were being put in place. I could feel the excitement as the bridesmaids helped Brittany into her gown. She was more than ready to make Brandon hers.

The guys were a little more rowdy, but very cooperative, which is always a good thing. It was easy to laugh while hanging around this bunch. I could tell it was going to be a great day!

After the Wedding: Sheldon+Lauren

A few months ago, I put a model call out on Facebook. I had been learning a few new techniques and I wanted to put them to the test. I wanted to work with a couple that hadn’t been married that long and was willing to put their wedding wardrobe back on. I got a message on Facebook from Lauren letting me know that a friend had tagged her in my original post. I learned that she and Sheldon, her husband, were a couple after my own heart. They love Jesus and they love to go on mission trips. Due to schedule conflicts we weren’t able to set a date for the session until last week. But it was well worth the wait. I am absolutely loving the results from this session and I would work with them any time.

Sheldon and Lauren, thank you so much for answering my call and letting me capture you guys!

Monticello, AR Maternity Session: Ross and Jammie

The weather was really nice the day I met Ross and Jammie for the first time. It was a bit overcast and not really hot. I had never met either one of them before, so I was just a little nervous.  But, I soon found out that we were going to get along great. They both seem to have the same sense of humor that I have and It was easy to make them laugh. And after the first Seinfeld reference was made, I definitely knew we were going to get along just fine. We were all cracking up by the time their session was over. They were very easy to work with and I feel like I got some amazing photos.

Ross and Jammie, thank you for letting me capture one of life’s milestones for you!

Monticello, AR Engagement Session: Walter and Brandie

I go to an amazing church. When I walked in the doors for the first time, I felt like I was home. Along with that came a great church family. These are some of the best people you could ever meet. I truly love them like I love my own family. Sometimes I get to work with people that go to my church. Not long ago, I got a message from Brandie asking about engagement sessions. We emailed back and forth a couple of times and after discussing it with Walter, they decided they would have me take their engagement photos. I love engagement sessions and I love getting to work with new people. It’s a perk of the job.  I’ve said it before.
When we all got to meet in person the day of the session, both Brandie and Walter had huge smiles on their faces. The day was beautiful, but a little windy. The laughed easily and it was infectious. We had a fantastic time. I could tell by the way they looked at each other that they are in love. It’s almost tangible. It was very easy to get good photos of this couple because I really didn’t have to tell them to do anything. They were themselves and it was truly a pleasure to work with them.
Walter and Brandie, I wish you the best and many years of wedded bliss.

The day was beautiful. Walter and Brandie are people who love the outdoors. They also love the lake. We decided to make that one of our locations. Although it was windy, it was a lovely spot. I even got to see a couple of Canada Geese.
