Guess who’s wedding I just photographed in Atlanta, GA!

 If you guessed my brother, Zach, and my gorgeous new sister-in-law, you are right!  The wedding was set outdoors along the Chattahoochee River at a beautiful venue!  Anyone who has planned an outdoor wedding knows exactly how they felt when the day’s forecast showed 100% chance of rain all day long!  Zach & Jackie had their “first look” in the rain (it was actually kind of romantic, but I’m sure I was a funny site trying to juggle a camera and an umbrella), but we forged ahead and made the best of it with cute umbrellas and rain boots for the girls! Their wedding party was not only very helpful, but such great sports! You were all so much fun, thanks for being such great friends to Zach & Jackie!

It was so cute to see all the little ones dressed up.  Jackie has the most adorable little nephews, the three boys dressed in the cute suspenders! While Zach had his nephew Braden, (who I must say is a spitting image of him as a kid) and all his nieces, Alivia, Cali and my daughter, Britan!

 God sent them a beautiful gift, about 45 minutes before the wedding ceremony was to take place, the rain stopped!  I had tears in my eyes throughout the whole ceremony not only to see my brother & Jackie so happy but just to hear the nature around us and to see what started out as such a yucky day be turned into the most beautiful perfect day!  As a huge bonus to me, the overcast sky made it the most perfect lighting a photographer could ask for! Jackie’s nephew walked in with a cute “I do” box with a note inside for Zach while Braden walked in with this sign as a surprise for him!  Anyone who knows Jackie knows that she is an avid runner!

Zach & Jackie it was such an honor to photograph your special day.  I think the day was perfect, even with the rain. It made us all appreciate the blessing we received so much more!  I had such a hard time picking favorites because there are so many more cute pictures of you two, but hope you enjoy your sneak peak!  Jackie we are so happy to have you become a part of our family and it does my heart good to see how much you light up Zach’s world!

Love you guys,

The Big Secret is Revealed…

Several weeks ago my good friend, Tish stopped by my house to catch up, and after a lot of small talk, I had to get down to business and find out more details about the new man in her life.  Much to my surprise I found out not only was she engaged but getting married the very next day!  She asked me to take some pictures of her and her fiance, Christian, after they said their vows.  I was so honored and wouldn’t have missed it for the world.   Many of you may recognize her from the years she worked here at Sacred Images.  Of course we had so much fun and it was so great getting to spend that time learning more about Christian.  I couldn’t be happier for them and wish them the best as they start their lives together in Chicago.

Zach & Kristen

Zach and Kristen celebrated their special day on July 21 at the beautiful Embassy in downtown Ft. Wayne. The couple live in Florida and share the passion of biking, so it was important that we incorporated it into their day. The wedding party was a lot of fun and willing to just do about anything, even at the price of ripped pants……LOL, but I won’t mention any names. I have to say that I just love it when you can see how much a groom adores his bride.  I caught several times the look in Zach’s eyes that just said how much he loves Kristen.  Such a beautiful thing and I am so happy for the two of you. It was a really great day and a pleasure working with you all.  Thanks for the opportunity, Mandi.

Will & Sarah

Will and Sarah were marred exactly 1 month ago on a beautiful Friday evening.  The first images below during their “First Look” was enough to show how in love they are. The whole day was filled with special moments and beautiful touches that Sarah pored her heart into.  I enjoyed working with you guys and I hope that you will have a blessed marriage and will enjoy all the memories we captured for you. 

Will and Sarah had a photo booth set up at the reception and I just cracked up when I came across the below picture. Talk about perfect timing, but as the DJ was trying to duck out of the way my camera clicked at just the perfect moment to look like they were giving the poor DJ the boot!!!!! By the way the DJ was one of my all time favorites to work with and was loads of fun. We couldn’t have done this again if we had tried, LOL.

Sweet Little Alex

Meet little Alex. He’s only a little over a week hold.  He was so priceless and so alert, we had trouble getting him to sleep, but it didn’t matter then cause he did so well and looked just so sweet!  It was so fun seeing this new little bundle with mom and dad, who, just several years ago I photographed their wedding.  I am so happy for them and they truly have an adorable little man. I want to thank them so much for sharing him with me and I can’t wait to see him grow up over the next year, (well lets not rush it, but it will be fun to see him over the next 3 months).

Just had to post this image cause his hands and expression were just too funny!!!!!!

Ryan & Kendra’s Wedding

One of my goals before Christmas was to finish and share with everyone all the fun we had at the Strickler’s wedding but unfortunately with all the long days and late hours I put in trying to finish up everything else for the the Christmas deadline, I didn’t get them completely finished. So the next best thing is to give you a little sneak peek to enjoy until I get the rest up.  The couple and wedding party were so much fun go work with and Kendra had so many fun details and if anyone knows me I love details, so I came home with so many pictures to weed thru and have had such a hard time deciding on some favorites. So Ryan, Kendra and all, hope you can enjoy these until I get the rest finished.

One Response to “Ryan & Kendra’s Wedding”

  1. Kendra Strickler

    Thank you so much for posting the sneak peak of our pictures. They are amazing!!! My favorites are the one with Lilly in it and then of Ryan and I sitting on the chair with my shoes!! Ryan’s favorite is just below that. Some of the moments of that day went by so quickly before we could take it all in and you captured them perfectly so we always will have the most Sacred moments of our lives forever. Thank you once again for all of your hard work and this is the best Christmas gift we could ask for this year!!!

Bryan & Krysten’s Album

Join with me in celebrating the marriage of Bryan & Krysten!  I just love the different touches each bride and groom put into their wedding day. Bryan and Krysten got married the weekend before Halloween and so they incorporated that into their reception celebration, and what a fun twist it was to see all the decorations and costumes some of the guests came up with.  You guys were a pleasure to work with and we thank you for choosing us to capture your memories!
