I met up with these lovely ladies this morning for a Christmas mini-session.
Thanks for a fun morning in a new place!
Deidra & John were married this weekend in the little country town of Westphalia. The church was gorgeous and so were these two.
They made my job easy and were totally comfortable in front of the camera… and it definitely helps that Deidra is a photographer herself. Get ready for picture overload!
I had such a great time and I feel completely blessed to have been your photographer.

This was the perfect ending to a great weekend… the weather was gorgeous and so were these two. I went to high school with Nicole, and now her and her husband are expecting their first little one! I met up with her and her husband… and her mom and dog, Daisy… Such an exciting time and I’m honored you chose me to capture these photos!
Can’t wait to meet you Weston!
Nicole, you are one gorgeous mama! :) I’m so glad we waited for the sunset!
This blog post has been a long time coming. I’ve been wanting to talk about Albums for a while now, but between moving and all the incredible sessions lately… I finally have time to talk about it.
I’ve created wedding albums for clients and even sample albums for myself to show potential clients. I LOVE the way wedding photos translate in albums. They tell a story… Your story… a story that is way better told in an album than on Facebook or even in a folder lost somewhere on your computer. Which reminds me… PLEASE remember to back up your photos! It is so so important!
Back to albums…
I have to be honest and say that when I was getting married, I wasn’t really thinking about Albums. They weren’t in my budget necessarily and so I never even really considered it. Albums are pricey, but they’re worth it. It wasn’t until after our wedding that I wanted one. I wanted one for our future family. A family heirloom.
I saw a photo one day on Facebook that had trickled down from Yanman Photographers. They stated…
“What if this was the only way to view your Grandparents wedding photos?”
Seriously… What if?!
My parents have a wedding album but I know for my grandparents, they only had one photo of them together on their wedding day. And it was with their pastor :) Not even together… alone.
Photos were so important for me and I loved that Andrea Crosswhite was there to capture our day. She did such an amazing job and I treasure them! However – I don’t want to pass around a DVD to my children or grandchildren… even still… DVDs/CDs may not even be a viable medium anymore… like Floppy Discs are to us now.
I believe you deserve to have your photos displayed in an album. You most likely put many many days and hours into planning your wedding. For me, a whole year. You worked hard and I believe you deserve to have your wedding displayed in an album… to tell your story.

I’ve known Kristie since she was born, well, at least it feels like that.
Our parents could probably tell us exactly when… Her and my brother were in the same grade growing up and I saw her grow up in our youth group. You can ask any person, and I heard it a lot at the wedding… Kristie is so sweet. One of the sweetest I know.
I’m so excited that I got to be there on her special day. It turned out perfectly and you can totally tell that these two love each other. Congratulations you guys!
