Amy & Todd {Married}

It’s a fabulous thing when a stranger chooses you to capture your wedding day. The only thing better, is when a friend asks you. It’s such an honor when one of your most favorite people on the planet trusts you to be a part of such a special day. Knowing the couple’s relationship, getting the “We’re engaged!!!!” text, first hand watching the planning, texting and emailing about ideas, watching your friends dreams become reality – and then being there to capture it all is absolutely priceless. With this privilege comes a significant amount of categorical, unequivocal, irrefutable fear. We want to do an amazing job for every single couple we photograph, but the nature of photographing friends is a unique experience that brings a level of self critique and over analyzing. Representing their love story with photos, providing them with their legacy to show their children, grandchildren, etc. is always our job – but for friends it is also our gift, so it has to be extra special. As special as this amazing couple is to us! Enjoy the beautiful day of Amy & Todd!!

Karin & Rog, you guys never cease to amaze me with your awesome talent, kind words, and incredible friendship. Thank you so much for giving us awesome photos that we will show our grandkids someday and cherish forever. You guys are truly the “best of the best”. Love you both!!!!

crystal - Oh my amy these pics are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! You were such a beautiful bride!! Cant wait to see more! πŸ™‚

Todd - Karin and Roger,

WOW! I was pretty speechless after looking through our set of pics. You really outdid yourselves here! You have already set the bar high in your profession, and I must say your work is nothing less than the top of the echelon…what an AMAZING job!! Thank you so much for giving us a gift we can pass on for generations. Love ya guys!!!

Christine & Juan {Wedding Day}

Christine and Juan were so excited about this day – it was impossible to not feel excited by osmosis. The ceremony and reception was packed with people and there wasn’t a person there who isn’t crazy about this couple. To know them is to love them. Their happiness and love is contagious. It felt like every single person there was someone that they cared for immensely. Like they could have had a wedding party of 275 people if it was feasible. (Seriously – thank you for not doing that) You could say how blessed the couple is to have so many people who love them and so many who would drop everything to help them out if they needed. We would say how blessed all those people are. Because they have friends as true, as inspiring, as loving as Christine and Juan. Their character is difficult to find, and just like their love and commitment to one another – when you find it, you never want to let it go.
Enjoy Christine and Juan’s wedding day!!!

Morgan & Bill {engaged}

The text came over Morgan’s phone… “Morgan… I like you.” She texted him back – “I like you too Bill, you’re like my best friend.” The sound of another text alerted her. “No… I really like you. As more than a friend.” She search for a response in her mind and frozen in her tracks she finally replied “Oh…” It was Bill saying this to her. Her friend from college that she studied with, hung out with, was just good friends with. She didn’t see him that way, but apparently he did. She gently let him know that she just didn’t share the same feelings, but was determined that they wouldn’t loose their friendship. And they didn’t.

Whitney & Kurt {engaged}

“It was an amazing twist of fate” Whitney will tell you. There is no other way to explain it. It’s the kind of chance occurrences that happen only in the movies, a love story books are based on. And it goes like this – Once upon a time, just at the exact right time…

Courtney McConahay - Where do I begin…. I have known Whitney for the past 6 years. We first met working at the YMCA together. The first time we met we were pretty much inseparable. I have been there for Whitney through just about everything even through the bad break up. Granted, up until 2 months ago Whitney and I lost some touch which her due to me joining the Air Force and I was unable to be there the night Whitney and Kurt met but we always seemed to keep in touch via Facebook. I always heard nothing but good things about Kurt. I knew one day this moment would come for Whitney again. I have prayed and prayed for Whitney to find happiness and for someone incredibly special to walk into her life and Kurt is that man. I haven’t seen Whitney this happy before since I have known her for the past 6 years. Whitney deserves the world and is such an amazing person and friend. She will do anything and everything for people and Kurt is the same exact way. We all know Whitney can be hard to handle sometimes but that’s the reason why we all love her and what’s not to love? I am so happy Kurt managed to walk into Whitney’s life. The story is so magical yet ironic. It makes those of us who have not yet found the loves of our lives believe in something greater and know that magical things can happen to good people like Whitney and Kurt. I wish nothing but happiness and unconditional love for these two wonderful people. I love you two so very much and I am so blessed to have a new friend like Kurt.


Gary Rapp - Very nice pictures!! Best guy she ever brought home,see you in March.

Brandus AKA Cupid - …..sniff…..sniff….sniff…

Kurt probably has never thanked his intuition enough as he came with complete strangers to a stalkers house. And I honestly am greatful that he did for I have not seen Whittney this happy since Facebook got an iPhone app. This truly is a fairy tail and I’m glad I was a part of it. Kurt is a wonderful man and I saw that in him since day one as we all ate chilli in his living room. Still in awe of the way that night played out as we watched a new love being developed. I love you two and I wish nothing but the best!

Jessica - Congratss Whit! I am happy for you πŸ™‚ Glad everything ended up the was it was supposed to be!

Ackerley Paul - Your pictures are so beautiful! Congratulations and we will see you soon! πŸ™‚
