Justin and Melissa are Married!!! Part 1

Ok... so I've totally stayed up WAY too late this evening/morning, but it was well worth it! I told myself that I'd just try to get a little editing done this evening, but once I started going through Justin and Melissa's portraits from their wedding day I quickly became fully entranced! I just love these photos so much because of the overwhelming emotion that is exuding from these two lovebirds! Justin and Melissa decided to do a first look before the ceremony and then gave me almost a full hour for portraits of just the two of them! I'm so glad they took this special time out to really enjoy some quiet moments "alone" before becomming completely wrapped up in the excitement of the rest of the day. What a blessing to have captured such intimate moments for these two to remember forever! So, with all that said... here are some of Justin and Melissa's wedding day portraits. More from their wedding is yet to come!

Meet Edmund Jack.... and his Mama and Daddy too!

What a neat opportunity it was to photograph little Edmund Jack and his parents Tabitha and Steven! Edmund is the first grandson of our great friends Jack and Sandy. It was such an honor that Sandy asked me to do this session while her family was visiting this summer! Hope you enjoy all the cuteness... there's plenty of it to go around!

Colella Family

I had such a fun time photographing the Colella family. Their two sweet kids were so kind and fun to be around! I also just adored the love between parents.... and their love for their children. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to spend some time with them and to photograph their family. Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!
