Jessica P. {Pre-Bridal}

Pre Bridal sessions were a staple of wedding photography in years past. A portrait of the bride would be displayed at the wedding reception and would then adorn a wall in the bride’s family home. Modern day Pre Bridal sessions have often been replaced with Trash the Dress sessions where brides can get down and dirty and get more unique looks without having to worry about ruining their dress. Either way you look at it, any excuse to wear your wedding dress beyond just the day of is a good one. I personally love a pre bridal session as it gives a soon to be bride the opportunity to basically have a trial run before the wedding day. Jessica’s pre bridal helped her fine tune her birdcage veil and figure out some issues with her dress, but the best part was that it put her at ease on her wedding day.

Lauren & Mark {Engaged}

To say it’s been a whirlwind is an understatement. He literally – after knowing her 3 days – saved her from a tornado. From that very moment, she knew. Everything before that day was a little crazy, and everything after was one surprise after another. But Mother Nature brought Mark & Lauren closer than they could have imagined, and nothing else life throws at them will tear them apart. In a whirlwind of moments where their past becomes their future, they look forward to saying “I do” and becoming a family… just maybe in a different order.

Stacy & Nate {Engaged}

It was grade school. He was 7. She was 8. They were probably more interested in Elmer’s Glitter Glue and PBJs than they were in each other at that point. How could you know that the boy who lives down the street would be the person you’d someday marry?
